    Yay for sleep! I'm jealous. H has been better. His new wake times are midnight and 4am. But he has been harder to get down and its like a 2 hour process.

    How awesome to be done with xmas shopping for them. I am shopping for my family right now. We might not buy Henry too much this year, we are already expecting a lot from grandparents and he really won't know the difference anyway. But maybe a gift or 2. And I know 93 is hot for you, but I would so take it. It's still in the upper 90's here. It's been hovering around 100 for a couple of weeks now. Tired of it. Fall doesn't really start here until the last week of October. It will probably get down in the 80's or so by the end of the month. But I always remember being a bit cold when I went trick or treating.

    This week has been insanely long. Not too excited about my weekend either. We decided to get Henry baptized and so we have to take a class on Saturday. Then just more family stuff. I need a weekend of doing something fun that doesn't involve formal lunches, baby showers or little kid's birthdays. I want to go swimming or something. Wish there were a beach close by.

    Haha, I feel like an old lady balding.. seiously.. it's getting better but still.. grrrr..

    Elizabeth, that is too bad but we aren't too close to a beach here either.. the closest that I think is kid friendly is 3 hours away but beautiful.. so much more than Galveston or anything in Texas lol. I hope his baptism goes well though and that you get some relaxation! This weekend I have a bridal luncheon for a close friend and then dinner with friends that night. I would love a weekend at home.. I need to clean and sort baby clothes. I am pulling out 3-6 month stuff I got from baby showers and I need to put up 0-3 month stuff up!

    Yay for being done x-mas shopping for the kiddos. With my DS's birthday at the end of July and my step sons birthday in August with all the back to school stuff, we usually don't get to start until sometime in Sept anyways but I already feel behind. I am at a complete loss as what to get for the 14 year old. So hard. He has a cell phone and an MP3 player...nothing fancy because he can't seem to keep track of stuff or take care of it so we don't spend a lot of money on electronics for him. But he likes them so, eh! The boys do have the PS3 player in their room, but the 14 year old is pretty much the only one who uses it out of the two boys. I really don't want to spend a lot of money on video games, he just got 2 or 3 for his birthday and has a bunch already and at $60 a piece for the new ones I just don't know. I'm still thinking on him.
    My DS is 7 and into the Legos now but OMG the prices on those are nuts! He wants the Lego City Fire Station...for $100(thinking that it going to be his "Santa" gift.) So maybe a few Lego sets and some clothes, I just don't know about him either.
    Kylie will be easy and much cheaper to get x-mas shopping done for as she won't need as much from us and won't know the difference either way. Guess it will all depend on money...always comes down to money!

    Monday I have a funeral to go to. My Aunt Donnas brother had a stroke Saturday afternoon and then had another one on Sunday and never came out of it. Tuesday his organs started failing so they got a team together and yesterday were able to do surgery to donate organs and he passed last night. Ladies this just baffels me...he was 55 and in perfect health. I'm talking no high blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, no diabetes, nothing. Just completely out of the blue, even the dr's don't know why.

    Have I mentioned i'm stressed and ready to pull out the rest of my hair that hasn't fallen out on it's own from pregnancy hormones? LOL

    I normally would not buy for Rylee but the whole DD will ask why no presents from Santa and so then I got her a few things. I go a bit crazy on holidays and got it from my mom. I love buying gifts haha. We are cutting way back this year but cutting back is still a good chunk of money because everything costs soooo much! I feel like I did good with 21 presents for DD costing me $200. I just now need to do a stocking for her.

    Jill sorry about your stress. DH just had one of his cousins husbands get oral cancer. he is 33 and never smoked or did chewing tobacco or anything. He developed a sore and next thing it was cancer that has now spread. They have a little boy that is 3 and it is really sad. I don't get why some people have these health issues and others do not.

    Nidia- Haha Texas beaches are not the nicest. Enjoy your bridal luncheon. Sometimes those kind of things are fun and sometimes they are just too much when you just want to relax. It's weird, I also sometimes prefer to stay home and clean!

    Jill-Teenagers are hard to shop for, especially boy teenagers. Good luck with that. Sorry about your loss. It so devastating to hear when a healthy person gets so sick suddenly. I don't get it at all. Thinking of you and your family.

    Aimee-Stockings! Thank you for reminding me. I want to get new stockings this year. I was going to knit some, but I think I might just buy some. My knitting probably wouldn't hold up over the years and I want Henry to have the same stocking throughout his childhood.

    AFM-My dad literally just called me saying he's in the hospital again. He has lots blood in his urine and they wanted him to get checked out since he has had 3 heart attacks and is on blood thinners. Poor dad can't catch a break.

    The class for the baptism is this week, but not the baptism itself. They will let us know on saturday what Sunday's they have available for the actual baptism. I need to buy an outfit for Henry. Some of those are so pricey for only being worn once. Oh!! We have a wedding to go to next month. What should a baby boy wear? I don't really want to dress him up in a suit. It's hard to find button up shirts for little babies. Most of them start at 12 months. I guess he needs shoes too? Never done this before.

    Elizabeth, I would just dress him in something cute but not too formal.. I mean, he's a baby.. he needs to be comfortable I doubt anyone would care if he weren't in a suit. I hope your dad gets better soon.. that really sucks

    Aimee, that's really sad I wonder what caused it.. so, so sad.. will keep them in my prayers.

    Jill, I'm sorry about your loss, will be praying for you and your family Oh and yeah, all kids want nowadays are video games, consoles, etc.. so expensive!!

    AFM, I am ready for the weekend. Ready for this bridal luncheon.. just heard we are also going bowling after with all the ladies that want to go, so that'll be fun.. but I have cleaning at home to catch up on.. DH is changing the oil for my Jeep and he has to mow our yard! Lots to do.. we live on 1 acre, so it's never fun.. it takes forever.. lol poor DH.

    Jill that's scary stuff about your uncle (?). I'm so sorry about that.

    Elizabeth I have a few button up shirts that are small and I *think* I might have some black soft shoes. If you want me to, I can look. I have to get DH to do an attic trip (yes, we try to go up there in spurts, it's not the most fun place to be) so I can get him to get the 6-12 mos box down and look for you and send you something for him to wear.

    My 3yo has a tummy bug and has been throwing up some today and last night. So far today she's kept down a banana and part of a muffin. Luckily it didn't seem to get passed on to the older brother so that's good.

    Our dryer has been on the fritz and I can't seem to find anyone to just come look at it and not charge me an arm and a leg. My "handyman" isn't skilled in appliances and can't find anyone himself. It just won't heat so I have to hang everything. My ILs didn't have a dryer for the longest time and I have NO idea how they did it. I hate hanging everything up and our only clothesline is in the garage so things don't dry very fast.

    Vicki that is so sweet of you. Sure if you are already making an attic trip. But don't go out of your way for me. I could pay you for the outfit and shipping.

    Sorry your DD is sick. My best friends whole family got a tummy bug last week. I think its going around.

    Good luck with your dryer. The whole time I lived in spain, I didn't have a dryer, but gosh its so necessary now. I can't even imagine the laundry with 3 kids.
