So I have been having the most terrible time getting pictures put onto my computer and so I have not gotten any new ones on here. We have been adjusting to Chad going back to work, which has not been that bad if you don't count having to get school done. That has been the biggest thorn in my side either not being motivated myself, or 4 kids screaming and having severe meltdowns due to colds, sudden fear of having to learn new things, needing mommy or needing fed! Math has proved to be the easiest subject to get done along with science, but history, reading, writing, and art (actual learning about...not the doing...the kids love to draw and color etc.). We are gearing up for real plans to speak of yet, but we are last minute people anyway so who knows what will happen! We did talk about staying in a cabin in the middle of no where for a night but not sure if it is still available or not. The kids have even done a great job staying out of the presents and not telling anyone what their gifts will be.
Every day we are thankful for our new little bundle to care for and watch over. He gets bigger and bigger every day and I don't even feel like he is a newborn anymore. He is now well over 11lbs now and is only a 3.5 weeks old! He is doing a good job of sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time at night so my sleep is not too interupted anymore. I usually only get up once in the middle of the night to feed him!
We wish you all a Merry Christmas.....

A new baby in the house is a great education all by it's self. You've got years and years for the rest. Let yourself off the hook, you are doing great.
