Just a little update

First of all, I CANNOT believe Christmas time is already here. And.. no, I have not Christmas shopped. I like waiting for the hustle and bustle of being in stores in December. Just doesn't feel like Christmas time to me without the crowded stores and being out seing all the decorations. Princess Brylee and I got up early and did a little shopping this morning at 6:30. It was fun and little Happy is SUCH a good shopper. She always looks around and "talks" to everybody.. not one cry. She is an angel, like her sister (who, on the other hand, is not an early bird, and was home sleeping safe and warm with Daddy.) We spent Thanksgiving with both families this year.. lunch in Fort Worth and dinner in Abilene. Exhausting day but very fun and the girls were perfect at the meals and in the car.
My 25th BIRTHDAY is a little over a week away and I am in shock! I never thought I would be 25! Eeek! But birthdays are always a celebration for me.. I have accomplished a lot in the past few years including a college degree, getting married and having two kids.. ALL IN TWO YEARS! WOW! I feel like I need to take a deep breath after even typing that! My besties, Chris and Kristie are coming down to spend birthday weekend with us and I am so anxious for them to be here.
Braelyn, Brylee and Dylan are growing like weeds and most days, keeping me laugh and screaming all the same time. Brylee is crawling, waving bye-bye, saying mama, dada, byebye and hi (& lots of little things you cant understand). She has become a really good baby. She crawls around and plays until she is tired or hungry. Braelyn is potty-trained, saying everything (and I mean everything.. it's like having a conversation with a 4 year old) and loving having her cousin, Dylan, here to be her BFF. She is such a gentle spirit and very in tune with feelings. Dylan keeps me on my toes. Dylan is the ultimate teacher of tough love.. he's stubborn and strong willed but hilarious and gentle. He loves to be held and played with. SUCH a boy! I love, love, love spending my days with these kids, even though at the end of some days I feel like I got beat up!! And of course, I am so thankful for Jeff, who is my best friend. There is nothing better in the world than sitting at home with Jeff playing with the kids. We are so blessed.
I hope everyone is happy & healthy. Enjoy the holiday season! I would love updates from all of you.. hint, hint.

By the way, I update my myspace or facebook a lot more than this.. so add me on there for better updates ;)
