We started off Christmas break with a basketball classic at Verbena. we spent 2 nights in Manchester and left there Christmas Eve to come home for Santa. Christmas Day we went to Cullman and stayed 2 nights. We got home just in time for yet another basketball tournament! Now were working on getting back into a routine. Jonathan's been back in school for 2 days now and Elizabeth goes back to preschool tomorrow.
I went to the gym today. I haven't been in 3 weeks. Hopefully we can get back in the grove now.
Elizabeth is more than ready for school to start. She misses her friends. I know this because she talks about them more every day. She has been really sweet toward her brother lately, but not so much with her sister. She has a hard time with all the travel. She really seems to miss people when we come home. Her worst problem lately is that she is having trouble sleeping. We check the closet for monsters every night now and we're struggling with night mares. We quit watching anything with violence. I have stopped watching CSI, Grey's Anatomy, and Law and Order. I'm working on no wrestling. I think the problem is the news. They always talk about someone getting killed, so I think I will record it and watch it after bedtime.
Sarah Grace has decided that everyone should call her "Sarah Grace". When I call her Sarah she says, "I not Sarah. I be Sarah Grace." That's fine with me because that's what I wanted to call her. Sarah was just easier at times.She loved getting to see everybody. She adjusts well to all the travel. I just wish she'd sleep better when we're away from home! Sarah is a joy most of the time, but when the terrific 2 moments hit, they hit HARD!
Cole is walking really good. He is even trying to run now! He gets carried away though and trips. His poor head always has a bruise on it. He's really working on talking. He's said momma and dada for quite some time, but he's trying to say Pluto and dog. When we go to basketball games he watches the game and his Daddy. He tries to do what his Daddy does. We're working on teaching him to box out. We want him to learn this early since Daddy's bassetball babies seem to have trouble with it.
Pluto is doing well. He survived our travel well. He stayed home to protect us from rats and birds. Those are the only things he barks at.
Well, it's nap time for us. Hope it's warmer for you than it is here!
Happy New Year! Pictures will be posted soon.
