We've been plagued by illnesses at our house. That, along with work, holidays and whatnot, finding blogging time has been hard. Also Kennedy has entered some sort of evil hell-child stage and whines and throws fits over EVERYTHING! How on earth do they learn how to do that?? I feel like I can't blink without her whining about it or wanting me to share with her. So computer time has been nixed as well.
But for now, I have time to update. Things are ok around here once you look past the constant illness. Just as we get over one thing, another hits us. I'm a little tired of it. But hopefully this means we'll fill our quota for the winter and have smooth sailing from now on.... right? I can't wait to feel like myself again and have my child actually sleep the whole night again.
But, in happier news, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I had plans to post about all that I am thankful for and blah, blah, blah, but you'll notice there isn't one. So I'll just keep that stuff in my heart. But I started the morning running a 10k with my friend. It was fun to get out and burn some extra calories so I could eat more. It was also wonderful to not worry about time or pace and just take it easy. I loved that.
Friday we worked more on the living room (we're trying to spruce it up a bit) and headed to our friends birthday party at Kangaroo Zoo! It was a little overstimulating at first, but once she calmed down, Kennedy was in love. Especially with one particular slide. I had to carry her to the top since she's too small to climb up on her own and then she'd wait for me to run around to the bottom and then she would slide down to me squealing and giggling. She threw a major fit when we had to go. These pictures suck. They don't at all capture the fun she had. But oh well.
At first, Daddy carried her up. But after that she only wanted me to do it. I got really tired.
The only picture of her and I that isn't blurry.
We're really excited for Christmas. My goal this year was to get the shopping done early and really put some thought and love into everyone's gifts. So far I would say I've earned a B+. We've got a lot more shopping to do still and some people are just hard to shop for. But we'll get it!
I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. Back to the grind tomorrow!
