Seeing your child's first reaction to Santa: priceless

Brynn was so overwhelmed by the whole Santa concept-it was adorable! I would go into all the boring details, but you get the picture. Fun was had by all!!

Santa Picture

Last night we did the traditional trip to go see Santa. Oh wow what a nightmare! We had to wait in line for a little bit so I was trying to get Brynn excited about Santa so that she wouldn't be scared of him. So, the whole time I am telling her "Santa is the man who gives out Elmo's!" Over and over I kept saying this to her. Finally, a little boy (age 3ish) turned around and said, "He gives out other toys too!!!!" Oops! Ticked him off!

Even after all of the excitement Brynn still got freaked out by the whole idea. Oh well, maybe next year!

You are now reading the blog of a Type II skier! Oh yes, you heard me right.

When we first got there we had to fill out these forms about how good of a skier we were. You had to be a Type I (beginner), Type II (intermediate), or Type III (expert). I asked if there was a Type -III but they didn't have that. I was the only Type I skier, but throughout the trip I got promoted to a Type II!!! (I promoted myself, there was not an official ceremony) By the time we left I was skiing blue trails! I really did enjoy myself, although I HURT everywhere! I did miss my babies soooo much, but it was a good break for Justin and I to have some quality time together.

Last night when we got home my mom informed me that my child was a big fat pig and that she wanted to eat ALL the time! So, we decided to go for the first taste of baby food. (No, I don't need your comments about how she is too young for this). We had tried the rice cereal before but it was a no-go. Last night the entree was applesauce, and let's just say she is a BIG fan of it. I am going to try and sneak some cereal into it later. My babies are getting so big!!

I know, I know, .......long time!! Things have been an absolute madhouse around here! I forgot to bring my camera to work today, so I will have to put pictures up tomorrow. This weekend was Christmas party mania. We had my work party Friday night and then I hosted a party for all of my girlfriends Saturday night. I am worn completely out! It was much craziness. And can I tell you that I absolutely love the Chinese Christmas gift exchange (or whatever you call it). I just think it is so fun to steal gifts and not know what you are going to get!

This Wednesday is going to be a big day in the Leach family! Are you ready for this......

Justin and I will be going on vacation.......with NO kids!

Oh yes you read that right! His parents are taking us on a ski trip for our Christmas present! We will be flying out of Abilene at 6:30 in the morning, getting to Denver at around 9:30, and hitting the slopes at around noon. We will be gone until Sunday so I am a nervous wreck about leaving my babies for that long! Now, I must mention that I have only been skiing once in my life and I was 6 weeks pregnant. Needless to say, I sucked REALLY bad. So, if I come back in multiple will know why. Please pray that I don't go completely crazy without my girls. I have never left them for this long.

Great News!

We got wonderful news! It was the calcaneovalgus malformation like we thought it was, but she will not need any casts or braces! He said it was caused from the way she was positioned inside me and that once she starts walking, her muscles should get stronger and correct itself! Praise God! I feel like a 100lb weight has been lifted off of me!

I will leave ya with a story:
On the way down there, we pop in "Finding Nemo", get everyone situated, and away we go. So, as we are going down the road I feel a tap on my shoulder. I look down and see Brynn standing between us. It took me a minute to realize what was going on, but apparently I had just put her in her car seat and not buckled it. OOPS! Guess it was the nerves!

Have a great day!
