~~Christmas 2008~~

Well another Christmas over and done. My kids were spoiled as usual. Libby kind of went into a present overload and just sat there and stared for a while, but she finally got into it and wanted a picture with everything she opened. Amber was really cute and I think she said "Thank you" after everything she opened. Jaycee was actually surprised with something this year, usually she snoops so much she knows what everything is before she opens them.
We had the whole fam damily here on Christmas Eve and our house is starting to be too small for everyone. We may have to rent a place next year if we have anymore additions to the family, and maybe even if we don't.
Everyone loved having the baby here, he will never know his name because he is called Zeke, Trey, baby boy and a bunch of other things. But he will always know he is loved, he never gets a second to just hangout because someone is always holding him.
We tried to do some pictures of him today and he was having nothing to do with it!! He hates being naked and he hates posing. He is less than 3 weeks old and when I put him on his tummy with a bow on his back for a picture, he scooted himself across the bench, kind of like an army crawl. I think he will be mobile before long. He also is really strong and turned almost all the way over during a diaper change, it is hard to believe he is so young and so strong already.
Here are a few Christmas pictures and hopefully we can get Trey to cooperate soon and get some cute ones of him. I did add a few to my myspace page if you want to look at those. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!!!

~~He is finally home!!~~

We finally got to bring the baby home last night. He is doing great and we love having him here!! When Jacki called the hospital and told them we were coming to get him AMA if they didn't get an order, the nurses passed on to the next shift to call 911 if we showed up and tell them there was an attempted kidnapping. What a bunch of idiots. Luckily there was a nurse with a brain there who just called the doctor and got an order to discharge him and nobody went to jail for Christmas.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas, I know we will, just taking turns cuddling the baby!

~~People Please Pay Attention!!!~~

Amber & Libby's little friend was run over by a car by our house today. The kids in this neighborhood have been intensely trained to watch the cars since we live on such a busy street and yet this horrible thing has taken sweet "J" from her family. The girls thought that since one car had slowed to let them cross they were safe, yet someone not aware of what was going on on the road hit this sweet girl, narrowly missing "M". How do I tell my 6 & 4 year olds that their good friend is never coming back because someone wasn't paying attention? How do I tell them that, yet again, that someone important in their lives is no longer in their lives? How can I make them understand that an innocent life was taken and it could have been prevented by someone just being aware of their surroundings? How do I tell them that life is just not fair? I want them to just be kids and be able to be innocent forever!
PEOPLE PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!!! This beautiful girl's life is over, her family will never be the same and the driver's life has been forever changed. Watch what is going on around you while you drive, put the phone down, slow down, watch other drivers and pedestrians, and again SLOW DOWN, getting there 3 minutes earlier wont make a difference, but it could mean a life~~ in other words PAY ATTENTION!!!!! Nothing you have to do while you are driving is as important or worth a life.

~~Our sweet boy~~

Our sweet baby is still in the hospital. He is having a problem eating and keeping it down. He has lost over half a pound, but yesterday he finally ate and didn't vomit. He has had every test known to man done to make sure he doesn't have the same problems that Zariah had. I know it is important to get them down, but we really want him to be home. He is such a sweet boy, loves to be cuddled and I can't wait to have him home to spoil him rotten.

After only 17 minutes of pushing our new sweet baby boy Ezequiel Treyvan (I know, but you know Jacki and her names nobody can spell) arrived this morning 12:56 am. He weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce and is 21 1/4 inches long. He looks really healthy and there were no problems with the delivery at all, cried just seconds after he was out so no holding our breath this time.
Here are his debut pictures and yes daddy put his "bling" on already. He is the only baby boy here at the hospital so he will be pimping the ladies in the nursery.

~~Christmas Shopping~~

Everyone that knows me, knows I just cannot pay full price for anything, yet I hate stores because of the crowds so the "Black Friday" shopping is OUT!!
BUT, this year we had a super "Cyber Monday" which actually started on Saturday and I got some awesome deals for Christmas right from my recliner!!
I was a little worried since I am usually done Christmas shopping by the first of October and then spend November and December doing Sub-for-Santa shopping. This year I had got 0 (none, zero, zilch) presents until the weekend after Thanksgiving so I figured nobody was going to get much. But the computer came through and I am now completely done!! Yeah, now we can spend the rest of December showing our little girls the lights, putting up the tree, taking them to see Santa and doing all the fun things we used to do when our big kids were little. Hope everyone is having a very Happy Holidays!!!!
