Kids Speak

Its been a while since I posted one of these, and I wanted to get them down before I forgot. I spent some time the past few days reading back over my blog and loved reading stories about the kids that I had totally forgotten about.

So without further ado, here are some of my favorite recent, what we refer to affectionatly as "Matthewisms"

Mom changing Matty's diaper "Pee-ew!"
Matthew: "Yeah, Pee Me"

Driving in the car:

Matthew: "There's something in my eye"
Jen: "Its the sun baby"
Matthew: "Will you turn the sun off please?"

He has also taken to coming up behind us, sticking out his little finger and poking our backs saying "boop"

I'm still alive...

I've just been sucked into facebook land. I post most pictures and updates there, and have totally neglected my blog, the fact of which has been brought to my attention. So here is a rundown of our life as of late.

* We all recovered from swine flu/bronchitis and now we all have colds. Except for Aaron. He's superman. Except for the two days out of the year when he actually gets sick, then he's not superman. ;)

*I'm going back to school. I will be taking classes through Kaplan University and then once I have enough credits (24 to be exact) I will transfer to University of Texas at Arlington and enter their nursing program. My goal eventually is to become an L&D nurse. Then once my kids are much older, get my midwifery license.

*School is going ok for the kids. Not great, but not terrible right now. We have decided that we will be moving once our lease is up here in May.

*I had a parent teacher conference with Connor's teacher, and she flat out told me he is a genius. No laughing. He's testing the highest he can possibly test on all their tests, and has all the teachers astounded. He's in the 2nd grade and she said he could easily excel in 3d, 4th or 5th. Due to his other issues however, we're leaving him where he is.

*I'm going to be an aunt! Steven and Megan are expecting in late April. I'm SO excited!

*I got my haircut. Love it! It is taking some getting used to however, no more ponytails for me, I have to make an effort every day.

*Aaron just celebrated his 4 year anniversary for Blue Cross on Halloween. Still loves it, still going strong. They move to their new building in January.

*Matthew is 2. Ornery as ever, but hilarious. Not a day goes by where I'm not cracking up at him.

*Aaron and I will celebrate 10 years of marriage in 20 days. I can't believe its been a decade! Time flies by so fast! I still feel like a young girl in love most days.

I think that's about it. Most of you probably know everything, but I got fussed at by a couple of people for not blogging recently, so here ya go. A blog :) I'll do my best to keep it up, but not promising anything, especially since classes start on Wednesday. I'll be one busy bee! Facebook is easy for me to update because I can do it from my phone. So if you haven't already, look me up there.
