Car Shopping

I'm sitting at the dealership with Michael and Gabbie. Remember back on my birthday in June when my wonderful husband finally caved into my whim that we needed a vehicle that would fit all 3 car seats in one seat? Then remember when I complained that the 3 car seats did NOT fit, even though the car salesman assured us they would?k

Well, my amazing husband is once again dealing with my whim and we are getting yet another new vehicle. My darling husband has accused me of being narrow minded. I had select vehicles I wanted to look at. He, trying to get me to "open up my mind" got me to look at an Escalade. Yes, that's right a Cadillac. I would have NEVER even sat in one before this. (yes, I really can be close-minded sometimes) Now, that has come back on him and we are signing papers on a 2006 Cadillac Escalade. No, it is NOT very Financially Peaceful, but we fell off the Dave Ramsey wagon earlier in the year.

We ARE going to get back on at some point. For now, I'm going to enjoy our new ride that has lots of room and fits all the car seats!

I should be sleeping...

My mind won't shut off. I'm listening to the sounds of Michael and Gabbie sleeping next to me and the sound of the monitor.

What is going through my mind at 11 p.m. you ask? Ok, so maybe you don't. I'm going to tell you anyway. The holidays. Michael has to work both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. It totally sucks and needless to say...I'm not happy about it.

That and I have no idea what I'm going to get anyone except for great grandparents. The girls do not really need anything. Maybe some more clothes, but they usually get plenty. I'll for sure get some books. Their "big gifts", I haven't a clue. Since we aren't very good at following Dave Ramsey's advice, the budget is going to play a bigger factor than in years past. I know we will get it figured out, but right now, it's what's keeping me awake.

I tried posting a picture of Michael and Gabbie showing that she is a daddy's girl too, but it didn't want too.

Now I'm going to attempt sleep again.

I didn't forget

I know I said I'd update and add some pictures yesterday, but I didn't make it up to the desktop yesterday. So I decided to get the blogging application for my phone. Since I always have my phone with me, I can always blog! Hopefully I can figure it out so it's quick and easy. So as promised, here are a few pictures.

Alli modeling a hat I made.

Alli and Gabbie.

So there you go! A picture update! That was actually pretty easy so I really won't have an excuse not to be a better blogger. More to come.

First Post

Not being able to sign into my old blog, and not wanting to only update through email....I started this new one! I promise to update more!

Things here are great! Miss Gabriella arrived on August 8th. She is now 10 weeks old. Last Tuesday she weighed 11.11 lbs putting her in the 70th percentile. She was 23 1/4 inches which is in the 80th percentile. She suffers from reflux but is doing better with medicine. She is smaller than Alli and Piper were at 2 months. The big girls absolutely adore her. They love to hold her and talk to her. They are absolutely wonderful with her!

Michael and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on August 21st. It has been a wonderful 6 years and we are looking forward to many more!

Alli's playing soccer and taking dance. I'll be glad when Piper can participate in something. Not so much for the additional running around, but to give her something extra to look forward to.

Well it's 11 and I should be getting to bed. I'll do some more tomorrow. Including pictures!!
