Christmas 2014

Christmas this year was a lot of fun! Jen and Greg and their kids came into town to celebrate this year. It's also Zoey's first Christmas! Oh and Papa Earl was here as well.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve this year was at Rick and Shellie's house. Rick read the traditional Christmas story from Luke. Grammy read her new Christmas book for the year. And of course the opening of the Christmas PJ's which I think is the highlight for the kids!

Zoey's Birth Story

I thought that it was time to share Zoey's birth story.

On Wed July 23rd I had seen the dr and I was still barely at 1cm. Very frustrating since with the other 2 I was further along by 38 weeks. So I decided to start taking the Evening Primrose oil capsules and rubbing Clary Sage oil on my belly.

I think this did the trick b/c on Sunday I was having some mild cramping but then it went away. Then on Tues, the 29th, as I was making dinner at about 5 pm I started to feel cramping again. I knew these weren't Braxton Hicks contraction like what I was having since 30 weeks. These contraction and pains were the real thing!

Summer's Shinanigans

Oh man! Summer is sure giving me a run for my money! This girl gets into everything!! I was downstairs doing some things when Summer comes up to me and says, "mommy I color!"

What? Wait color what? I looked down and at her and started laughing. She had found one of the black sharpies and colored on her arms and legs. When she's at Marva's house her a Phoebe color with markers, I guess she thought this would be okay. Oh dear!

So of course I had to take a picture before I stripped her down for a bath.

Luckily it all came off in the bath. Phew! I need to make sure those markers are out of her reach! haha
