what a day!

It has been a really horrible day. I mean, REALLY HORRIBLE. I think I am still in shock at the day that we had in the Wildes household. Oy! It always seems to happen when Andy is out of town and I get no reprieve from the kids and all their FREAKING bickering. Seriously?? Seriously. I had my children 7 years apart, but you would never know it! They "fight" like tormenting the other until screeches from the little and laughter from the big is all I hear. Oh. My. Goodness. What a day! I am going to put the older one in her bed and dance neked around my living room. No, not really....but, I should! :)

Can't wait until this day of whines and cries is behind us!

Onto happier times! :) hehe

More Christmas pictures... We always sit down as a family, by the fire, on Christmas Eve and Andy reads the story of Jesus' birth from the Bible aloud. Always such a special time for our family to focus on what we are celebrating!

The stockings were hung all full of treats....

The presents were wrapped and placed with care....

And the kids woke up and stood in wonder as they checked it all out:
I think that picture is my favorite from Christmas day...really. It is. I love how Bayleigh is just standing there looking, but still watching out for her baby brother. And that is just so Layne right now! Bed head. Dragging his lovie everywhere. Standing back to observe. So adorable!! Love, love, love this one! I will cherish it all of my days!
I hope that you had a better day than I. I will be back with more pictures soon!! :) Love to add a little at a time - gives me something to blog about for awhile. heehee
Ohhhhh and check out the kit at Little Red Scrapbook - pure yumminess!! And I plan to indulge myself tonight with it. :)
Until next time...

Let me just preface this post with this:

I spent most of my morning yesterday in the Emergency Room...not because one of the kids was hurt. No. People have asked. Numerous times. No. I was there because the cutie you see below slammed his head into the bridge of my nose during one of his tantrums and made me see stars. And look like I just fought Ali for the belt. HA! No broken bones, just a contusion and a giant headache. In my nose. It's been quite interesting!

And I am finally back with an update in pictures... YAY!! Jacked up nose and all. :)

We have spent most of our Saturdays cheering on our Gators. And Nana couldn't resist christening Layne with his first Florida hat. :) I have to admit, he is pretty stinking cute!

And we baked cookies....LOTS of cookies. All for Santa of course. *wink* Bayleigh loved helping in the kitchen.
Then, we did the annual trip to the mall to sit with Santa. Someone was not a fan. At all. I mean,
crying, screaming, name it, the little man did it in an attempt to escape the grips of the nicest looking Santa I have seen. HA!!! Of course, we had to have a picture. Every child deserves a screaming Santa picture. :) Oh and also note Bayleigh's face - that is her "OH MY STARS, what is HIS problem?!?!?" face. hehe

While we were out visiting Santa, we had an elf intrusion!!! Zack (our elf) brought along some of his comrades and proceeded to trash my kitchen and dining room. Bayleigh was tickled and Layne was enthralled by the mess we found. Too fun!
On Christmas Eve in their new Christmas pajamas and sitting with their present of choice. They each get to open one present on Christmas Eve that they pick from under the tree. Love this picture (even though Bayleigh is squinting). Hey - 2 out of the 3 isn't bad!! :)

We have been busy!!! And there are tons more pictures to come of our Christmas festivities - all 3 of them. :)
I am off to apply more ice to my nose and hope I don't get black eyes!
Enjoy this Wednesday and stay warm!!!

where did she go?!?!? :)

I posted and disappeared again! That is what the holidays will do to you. We went out of town right after Christmas....came home so that Andy and I could work for 3 days....and then went to visit my family down south. The trip home took 4 hours longer than it should have, but we made it!! I am so glad to finally be home for a good long stretch of time....

Here's what we have been up to lately....

A new baby that comes during the day for me to watch. :)

More to come tomorrow.....blogger is being a pain in the toosh!!
Look for my time in pictures tomorrow....hehe
