From the end of December through the new year we were at Gamy and Granddaddy's celebrating christmas and family.
When we got there wednesday...the kids waited so patiently for uncle brian to get there after work..but just couldn't stand it any longer..haha! so, they busted into their presents.
and in 5 seconds they were done! haha! they were all pros.
scooters for ty and hanna...and a plasma car for claire..but the baby belle was a hit! any doll claire just loves! Ty and hanna..along with addison's scooter from santa..cruised around the block. but, it was pretty cold and windy..so they didn't last too long!
hanna also got a giant white board...that was a big hit for them all...and still continues to be at our house. perfect for playing teacher, homework and drawing football fields. ha!
loved their blankets from aunt ash.
ready for a scooter ride...
They broke into addison's gift of dressup clothes...they had so much fun! beautiful princesses.
For new years eve...we had plans of going to friends house...but Trav was feeling pretty terrible (come to find out he had a sinus infection) so...we decided to stay and just lounge and watch football.
hanna crashed about 5ish...and claire went down about 6:30....so, it was just Ty and Addison...so, they played ty's ninja turtle game from aunt ash....so much fun and got some energy out!
hanna, of course, woke up when ty and addison were going to bed...
but, after eating and jammies...she was back to bed..with the rest of us..before midnight! haha!
Happy NEW YEAR!! 2016!!!!!!
Christmas day we just lounged and played..until that night when we had the annual Roby/DEvine christmas....everyone was there and it was so much fun!
Ty is always in heaven b/c he has 4 boys to play with! haha!
Saturday, before we had to head home we celebrated our little Elly's first birthday! what a fast year!
we had lunch, cupcakes and played pie in the face! Which, ironically, my clean child, Ty...LOVED! haha! it was definitely a hit!
after celebrating we headed back to midland! (well actually the lake to get travis' truck)..and for him to go hunting sunday! (which he got a doe...we needed meat).
we had a wonderful time and this was pretty immediately after we left....3 sleeping roby's...always makes for a good trip! haha! means a fun trip.and holiday break!
It's now Jan 11th and we are finally getting our house back in order.
One of the gifts I received was a professional organizer...so, she came twice last week..and really helped get areas cleaned out and organized...while I was able to put away the christmas decor and unload some suitcases..it was a very productive week.
and then inspired me to keep going saturday....so, while travis took the kids to a bday party, I organized our medicines, linen closets and my closet.
Friday, I finally took the kids to the dr...Ty and Claire both have sinus infections...I was hoping to get an antibiotic since they haven't been able to kick their sickness with OTC meds...so, that worked out well! haha!
So, I had our dr. refill all the kids meds too...breathing treatment and allergy meds for all 3....along with probiotics...so, we should be refilled for awhile....
and sunday after church trav worked on the garage....aahhhh!!! life, to me, is so much better when you feel clean and organized.
Tuesday...our cleaning lady comes and I get my car detailed....so I am excited for those two things...after that I will feel like we will be good to go for awhile! ha!
I wouldn't call this a new years resolution...I was just tired of living in clutter, not having time to fix that problem, and ready to get back to normal.
and i feel I am on track 1 Two thumbs up!
