Thanksgiving and Christmas tree

He's making a list and checking it twice

We have made our Christmas list for everyone and then budget we have for this holiday season. Fingers crossed, we will make it through this holiday withour going broke lol.

My mom's graduation from nursing school is coming up and I am really proud of her doing so good with how hard these past few years have been.

We are really excited about this Christmas cause we get to have it in our own home this year!!! We are thinking of all our ideas on how we want to decorate the house and how we want to do Christmas morning with the girls. Unfortunatly, Aaron and I have to work Christmas Eve and day but it is shorten hours and if it isn't busy it will be an early out which means we get off early.

Lets start getting into the holiday spirit!!

Such a small thing

iPod have now become part of our culture. They are user friendly and a life saver in the gym or when studying, or even on nice walks. I work with them now and I love them even more after finding the ends and outs of them.
We had training this week which has been a little overwhelming but I am learning so much on top of what I already knew. Its really cool.
Thanksgiving is right around the cornor which I have off thank goodness cause then I am going over to my sister in laws' house cause her and I are doing Thanksgiving dinner. I think it is going to be soo yummy. After that starts the holiday season with shopping and then Christams day. I plan on living at work for all the customer's that need help from syncing thier iPod to figuring out how to turn it on. I love my job and I am so blessed that God has given me this job!

Lost track of time

My goodnes it has been a long time since I have posted a blog. I apologize to my faithful readers out there (if there are any lol). With work it has been so hectic! We get up 4-5am get girls to daycare, go to work, get off work, get the girls, go home and then go to bed lol. Here are some updates:

Aaron and I have been on the phones for about 3 weeks now and last week we were told we were being permoted to Tier 2 (which is a level up from what we currently are). They only chose 40 people out of 200 reps. This includes a pay raise but it also includes a change of schedule once again. Aaron is the number one rep on our team which is awesome. I'm up there as well. We start training for Tier 2 next week. We are so blessed with the oppertunities God has put infront of us.

Addi is doing well and is enjoying watching her favorite tv show 'Blue's Clues'. Sydnee is holding her head up more and is on the verg of rolling over. We have given her baby cereal once but that didn't go so well so we will try again soon.

Aaron and I celebratied our 1 year wedding anniversary last Monday the 27th. Crazy how fast a year has gone by. We went to Applebee's to eat dinner and that was it. It was nice cause it was just the two of us.

Halloween was a blast with Addi being a ladybug fairy. Her and I as well as Tammy and Skeylar went trick-o-treating around the neighborhood. Aaron and Sydnee stayed behind to pass out candy.

We are working hard for the up coming holidays for gifts. We do get Thanksgiving off but we will have to work Christmas Eve and Day. Total bummer. The weather has been cool here which is a wonderful change. I have always loved the fall season.

So there is my update. I have more of a resonable schedule so I will do better at posting.

Good night.
Aaron is currently backing up all my pictures so I will post them later :)

Now that I have been working I so look forward to Fridays since that means the weekend and payday for Aaron and I. Work is going well and we are doing good in our training classes. We are in seperate ones which kind of suck but we are part of the smart ones so its all good lol.
Addi and Sydnee have been doing well at daycare and seem to be enjoying it. We are almost out of our small finacial rut and soon will be saving money. Nothing else really new. I do have to say that getting up at 4am is totally blowing balls!! Money is great though and I want to be able to buy everything my girls need :)

We love it soo much and this is the first new and not used thing we have bought together :) We think it looks like us. Pictures are of the sofa and rug, love seat, and then the recliner. WOOHOO!!

Aaron and I both got calls yesturday that told us we will be working in the Apple IPOD tech support department. This is such a blessing for us. It is a little hard because of leaving the babies in someone else's care but we are taking a lot of measures to make sure that we are hiring someone who will take very good care of them. We will be start beginning of October. This will help with our money issues and help us make money for savings for the things we need :) So WOOHOO TO US!!!!

2 months

Sydnee had her 2 month check yesturday. She weights 10lbs 15oz and is 23 inches long. She is very healthy and recieved her 2 month old shots as well. She was very upset getting those but her binkie and blankie made her better. She is doing so well with holding her head up and making eye contact. We have gotten her use to a binkie for comfort during the day and also her swing. It helps with cleaning and spending time with addi. Sydnee is sleeping from 830pm to 2-3am so I am getting a good block of sleep. She smiles so big now too.

Addi is still doing well with potty training and only a few accidents. We are doing more projects like play-duh and coloring. She has gotten into a braty stage but we are oking on that.

Aaron and I will be hearing soon if we got the Apple job. Fingers crossed!!! We are so excited about the holidays and the winter season coming up. Here are some new pictures of the girls:

Poor Little Caylee

I feel so sad for that little girl. Whenever I see news stories about I want to cry for her and her family. I as a mother of daughters can not imagine waiting so long to report my baby missing, but we don't know the whole story. Nevertheless, I pray for the safty of her like many of us are. My heart goes to her and I wish her peave and comfort right now whereever she is since she can't be with the ones that love her. I want to add a few pictures of my beautiful girls because I am so blessed with all 4 of my beautiful daughters.

Setting Summer Sun

Well the summer season is coming to a close. What a wonderful life I have with all my beautiful girls. Shelby started 1st grade and has said she wants to read 105 books this year. Little Kenzie started Kindergarden and had a wonderful first day and will make a lot of great friends Im sure. Addison is potty training and doing fabulous. Baby Sydnee is smiling, making eye contact, and holding her head up very well.

I am so blessed with gorgeous daughters that anyone will be lucky for them to be a part of their lives.

So an end of a season and the beginning of a new. This autum will be full of memories and holidays.

So You Think You Can Dance

I am addicted to this show every season and last Thursday was the finale. There was a preformace done by the cast of 'Chris Angel- Believe' called "Homage to the Rabbits". IT WAS AMAZING!! I have watched it so many times and reading some awesome reviews about it. It is a little creepy but at the same time you can't stop watching it. Here is the video..

Finally have a minute

So I have a moment to myself and thought I would do an update. The past few weeks have been an adjusting time for Addi, Sydnee, and I. Aaron works 8-5pm, M-F at Carmax and then 530-930pm, Tue Wed Th and 11-7pm Sat-Sun at Officemax so there is a lot of time where it is just the girls and I. Im running on fumes it seems. I feel too guilty to ask Aaron in the middle of the night for help because he works so much for us but waking every two hours is getting exhausting.

Addi is being a typical two year old that and we have started 'time out' in the corner instead of me yelling constantly at her. We are slowly starting potty training and she used the potty last night at bath! Yeah her!! She does love Sydnee and does try to help. I will scheduling an appointment for addi next week for her skin rash. We conquored her arms and they are healed but her legs are bad so we need to take a more aggresive approch.

Sydnee is a little monkey that doesn't like to be sat down when awake. From 5-530pm to 9pm to doesn't want to sleep nor be awake. She will fall asleep when rocked but then wakes after about 5 miutes of being laid down. Brightside is once she is asleep she will sleep til about 1230am-1am so I do get some block of sleep. She doesnt cry often unless she has a bubble or doesnt get picked up. She is a noisy sleeper and eater. She is a month old today and nursing is going well.

I have found a MOPs group that I am signing up for that will be every 1st and 3rd tuesday of the month at 9-11am from Sept to May. It will give me the chance to get out of the house and also be around adults. Might actually be good for me.

We will be moving to our new apartment Sept 6th and I dont think this move will be as stressful as our other moves have been. They say rain is coming for the next days which will then give a break of the extreme heat we have expiranced. Aaron now has Fridays off and so tomorrow we will be spending a family day together. We have to go to the pet store for some food for the lungfish and we will just spend a nice day together.

At the top is a new picture of Sydnee from this morning that I took.

Sydnee Emmerson

yes she is finally here. She made her arrival on July 10th at 11:44am weighting 6lbs 13oz, 19 in long. She came out calm and collect and with open arms from aaron and I. She is now a week and two days and is doing so great. Breastfeeding is going good and she is sleeping well. She looks a lot like aaron and has brought so much joy to aaron and I already. addi is doing great with her as well.
Mom comes on monday and staying til thursday which we are all very excited about.
We will be moving the first of september to a new apartment that is more affordable and also closer to aaron's family. The apartment is a lot smaller than what we have now but we will turn it into a home for us.
The weather has been very hot and humid here with little rain which is a little disappointing.
Got to go feed the baby!
