The past few days were exhausting.lol Thursday was spent helping my parents put up their Christmas tree. The kids had a lot of fun but it got to be a pretty late night for the littles. Isaac ended up asleep in a big recliner and Evie ate so much junk that I wasn't sure she would ever sleep again. It was nice to spend the time over there and mom made her famous fried chicken so the baby and I were very happy.lol
Friday was the dreaded glucose test day. Mom called and offered to watch the kids while I was gone and I was grateful not to have to worry about the kids being here alone. I went for the test at 10:30 but they wouldn't see me since it was too close to their lunch break, they said I could come back at 1 or another day. I almost decided to just wait but figured I'd hang in there a little longer. I went home and my mom hadn't picked up the kids yet and the littles were really running amok! How amok you say? Well, my 5 pound sugar bowl is still missing.lol I've looked in every room and it's no where to be found. Who knows where Evie put it. My mom picked up the kids around 12:30 and they went to lunch and then to the store to buy cookie making supplies. I went to the test. Yuck! I feel like Jax is in the dark ages. I actually had to drink the old fashioned nasty uncarbonated orange syrup. Down in Miami they have the carbonated form and it is much better. It was a very stressful hour but I'm hoping that I passed anyway. I'll let you all know when I find out.
After the test, I went to mom's house to watch everyone bake cookies. They had such a blast! Evie has never made the old fashioned, roll them out, sugar cookies. She just loved the cookie cutters and putting the sprinkles on. Every cookie was given more than it's fair share of sprinkles.LOL My dad declared them the best he's had in ages. He loves the sprinkles but mom is usually a little less exuberant.LOL They made chocolate chip, sugar, and peanut butter with kisses on top. Very unfeingold but very good.lol
After the cookies were done, we came home. I wasn't feeling that great and really needed to lie down. Jon made dinner for me, what a blessing and after dinner we went to take a walk but it was raining so Eric and I loaded the littles into the van and took them to Kohl's to walk around.lol I got a new sweater and a cute baby outfit for the new one and the littles each got a small toy each. Evie got a Dora playdough set and Isaac got a Thomas train. Each were over half off. I also bought a new doormat for the back door, it was over half off and we got two stuffed animals with flannel blankets for $10 each. I think I'll save those as gifts for friends. Oh and I got Eric a new dress shirt. He's been in need for a while.
After that long day, I passed out by 9pm and poor Eric stayed up with the littles until they finally fell asleep. Isaac had had a nap at mom's and he stayed up until 12am and Evie was down by 10.
I guess that's been my last couple of days. I never did get to make that salad dressing but I will before Monday.lol
Oh and the kids have declared that the van is too small for us all. I'm a little disappointed but I think I can still use it during the week when Eric's at work and it's just the six of us. Allison can sit up front and Jon in the middle w/the baby and Isaac and Genevieve can get the whole back row to themselves.lol
