can I get a whoop whoop.

I just realized that the last time I posted was the Friday before my first full college semester began. If the fact that it's taken me nearly 4 months to update isn't any indication as to how crazy my life has been, well then I don't know what is. What I do know is that my absence from the blog-o-sphere has completely paid off and I finished my first actual college semester with straight A's... With that news, I figured that a celebratory blog post was in order, because lets face it, you can only brag so much on facebook before people start rolling their eyes at you. Let me just say... I'M SO FREAKIN' STOKED.
Okay, now that that's out of my system, we can move on to more pressing issues...
I'm hoping that with my 4 month absence, I might still have a few readers. If you're still with me, humor me and let me know.
So, whats going on with us otherwise? Well, Austyn is nearly halfway through second grade. Still loving school. Struggling a little with reading, still. But otherwise a "delightful student" in the words of her teachers. Begging for a Nintendo DS for Christmas, thank God its not a cellphone instead.
Peyton is starting to talk all the time. Mostly being a little parrot, copying everything you say... its too stinkin' cute, even tho I'm a little biased. He is BADLY in need of a haircut right now. Totally rocking the little 21 month old mullet. I'll try to post the before and after pics this weekend after we take him to get all beautified for the plethora of Christmas pictures that are sure to follow in a mere 9 days.
Hmmm...
What Else...
Wes is busy doing what he always does... work. Nothing new, but he is still enjoying what he does and really enjoys the other people that he works with so there are no complaints.
And for me, well, my daycare is still going strong, right now I have 2 full-time kids and 2 part-timers. While I've had the opportunity to take on more children recently, I'm perfectly happy with the ones that I have right now and I'm just at the right number for my tiny house. I'm also working at Hey Baby, part-time for those of you that didn't know, mainly to give me a reason to get up, shower and put on decent clothes(any of you SAHM's can probably relate with that. Either that or I'm just very lazy, which is a likely possibility as well). The people that I work with are awesome and I love the atmosphere. What more could you ask for?! So as you can see, with all of the different hats (as my 6th grade teacher would have called them) that I have been wearing lately, I've been a little bit pulled in 50,000,000 different directions these past few months. But I can at least take off the student hat for a month and can hopefully replace it with a more diligent blogger hat to entertain all of you that have stuck by my side.
Oh and the Christmas cards will be in the mail shortly...
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. XOXO

You, Erin, were also a delightful second grader and I'm not surprised by the "A's"! But you should get A's for all the other things you are doing, too!! Merry Christmas!!

Yay! A new post! Congrats on the 4.0 -it's definitely not an easy task - even without the husband, kids, and 2 jobs. I can totally relate to the whole SAHM thing - maybe that means that I'm lazy too tho...:)

Hey, just wanted you to know that I'm still a loyal reader. :) And that I haven't updated my own blog for a month for pretty much the same reason: school! So I totally understand where you are coming from. Congrats on the 4.0!
