Well, I should have done this post yesterday, or at least A post. I feel so bad. Yesterday was Ryan's 31st birthday, and I did NOTHING for him and got him nothing. I feel like such a bum. There are just not enough hours in the day to get anything done these days and I feel like I'm just running in circles chasing my tail.
To my wonderful husband: Sorry I dropped the ball this birthday. I know it wasn't fun and exciting, but I hope you still had a good day. You are the best father and husband to me and the kids, we are truly blessed to have you in our lives. Thank you for all that you do. You are the best and I love you so much!
Yesterday was also Adriana's first Christmas program at school. It was so cute! I love watching little kids on stage, you never know what is going to happen. Adriana was so cute up there, we enjoyed it so much. I had to download this video to YouTube, since the file was too big. Click on the link below to see:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60eqwkSAjpA

Adriana and HeeHee. She didn't like sharing
the attention with Paxton, but she had a great
PopPop and Adriana.
I think this picture turned out so great.
HeeHee and Paxton.
P&P- Pop and Paxton
The last night they were here, we decided to go to Chuck E. Cheese to play some games and eat pizza. We were leery about taking Adriana there again, since the last time we went she had a huge melt down, but she did really good. We invited my parents to come along too, since they had NEVER been to C.E.C. before. I'm surprised, but they actually played some games. Here are pictures from that adventure.
A Group Shot. Sorry Paxton, Mommy
cut you out of the picture.
Adriana with the scary robotic band.
I could see where these characters
would give kids nightmares.
Adriana and HeeHee playing games.
Ryan playing the football game. He is very proud
that he has the highest score on this game.
Pa and Adriana riding on the big rocking horse.
Mom playing Deal or No Deal
Dad Playing Deal or No Deal
Jim giving Deal or No Deal a try.
(We all played this game, and none of us did
very good, but its a very addictive game.)

Today was my first day on my own. I have had the kids by myself before, but this was the acid test. Thursdays are my errand days. I go the bank, get gas, go to Wal-Mart and pay bills. It seems to be a trying day for Adriana, because my attention is split between all of these things. Today was my first day to do all these things by myself. It started out good. I got all my bills paid last night, got my grocery list made up, and was ready to roar. The bank was a good stop and I thought I would treat Adriana to McDonalds for lunch. This is where it all started to unravel. She didn't really do anything wrong, but the child LOVES to people watch and this takes all her time and energy. Not good when you are on a timeline with an infant. After eating a cheeseburger for an hour, I was loosing my patience really quickly. I knew I was a on a tight time crunch for Paxton and when he was going to be needing to eat next. This was my bad, I left the house today without a bottle. I should have known better. Silly me. I thought since we left the house around 10:45am, that we would be home in time to feed Paxton by 1:30pm. WRONG! By the time we wrapped up at McDonalds, and got to Wal-Mart, I was pushing 1pm or so. He was not a happy camper. After his screaming, Adriana trying for my attention, and people staring, I had had enough! I got the few groceries I had and checked out. I was so upset. I think all 3 of us were in tears by the end of our little adventure today. I now know, not to leave the house without a bottle and not to eat out with Adriana when I want to get something done that day.
Guess where I'll be heading back to tonight? Lets hope it goes a little better than earlier.
