The house is semi-clean, we have spent the last 48 hrs eating and as most are probably doing... I am planning my next week with eaters remorse and trying to figure out how I can feed my family but keep myself from eating ( NOTHING looks good to eat after thanksgiving). i am jammin out to the new Coldplay cd Prospect March I bought it for Bry as a surprise to put in his cd player with a sticky note that reads (thanks to Lyndz) "the weather is cold, play me for a little warming up on your way to work." He's going to freak because he doesn't even know that they had an edition added to heir new album out (and he is ALWAYS on top that kind of stuff)

So like I said I am jamming out to the new cd, mainly to drown out the crying i hear through the bathroom wall which backs up to Kehnley's room... she has been crying for 15 minutes, I put her into bed for a nap totally asleep and she is crying because she doesn't want to be there. I am in agony, i think it's the hardest thing I have had to do yet as a parent, i know it will get harder as the years go by with all the things that children go through... and it's something that I have to fight for. I know it's what's best for everyone, even if it's not the easiest. I rock, I hold, I sing, I cuddle... but as some point she HAS to get used to her bed or it will just get worse... so here I sit trying not to go into the room, watching her on the video monitor throw her pillow out, lay down, sit up, lay down, puller her dress over he head, rub her eyes... and cry.

I will stay strong...
Megan posted this on her blog and I think it looks like fun and a great idea. It's an open house but blogger style. Count me in! More to come about this.


Actually that's on the "to do list" is to get the Christmas decor out and get going...

Something that I was reminded of this morning, after all the flour settled from the thanksgiving feasting.... we have a feast with the Lord that is coming. It's going to be all we are hoping and waiting for and enduring for. It will be the sweetest meal, to just drink Him in, taste how good His many blessings are. It will be more filling to see Him in His glory than any thing on earth we could ever eat. Do we plan and fast and wait and anticipate THAT meal? When Christ will be the host? When He will call us to the table to rejoice in reuniting with Him? I don't think I will or want to look at any meal the same again.

Kehnley is sleeping soundly in her bed.... it only took 30 minutes. Thank you Jesus.

I can't sign off wihout pics! Here are the pies i made for thanksgiving. One Chocolate Mereign and the other is my new fav. Cherry.

Oh yeah, and look at this little Turkey!! I could just gobble her up


What a show...

Finally I have some pics from Kiki's Halloween... she was a very fat lady bug!

I tried to find a lady bug outfit myself, but apparently everything that wasn't scandalous was taken and so Jen let me borrow her very popular from last year bee costume.... Kehnley wouldn't get dressed in her outfit til me and Lilly had ours on first. Even then she screamed for the first 30 minutes. BUT soon she loved it and it as torture to try and take it off... even now if I open the closet and she sees the costume she wants me to get it down.

Bry was a bee keeper, and he carried around a jar of honey all night lol.

Lilly hated her costume... and I totally gave in and gave Kehnley some candy. ONLY twizlers!

Bry and I went to the Coldplay concert this week. It was amazing! I mean... it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. We love them and we have been trying to go for years, we have bought tickets every year they have been in the states, the first time the hurricane canceled it for my birthday, the second time we were sent tickets for the Dallas show on accident and didn't check the tickets til the night of the event! It was horrible, i cried so hard! :) it's so silly no looking back but i was REALLY upset. I mean i talked about it to everyone we knew for forever.

So we get there and it was awesome because Bry and I REALLY needed a night out together, surprising i know considering we have a 17 month old but we don't get to go on dates very often We ate at Hard Rock and then went to the Toyota Center, hey had already started putting up Christmas lights... it reminded me of our engagement pics and it was just a really romantic night. We needed to remember those days. The most terrible thing happened (in my world at least) my CAMERA WENT DEAD! and i had no charger... I have only ONE pic from the vent! and it was making me sick but the girl in front of me was taking awesome pictures, i asked he if she posted them on a flickr or anything... she told me just her my space ( i was like you are going to waste those good pics for freaking Myspace?! what is wrong with you!) anyway needless to say, i was pretty disappointed. I will see if I can get more pics from somewhere. But this is the one picture I took... it doesn't do the night justice even though this was the one song Bry was most excited about.
