I'm doing it.....I think

I am cutting off my hair! That's right. I'm tired of the long BLAH hair. I feel like I look like I am 19 with it. I want to look like an adult!!! Jason is not happy about it. But, I always have spit up in it, or Emerson has a death grip on it. Or my favorite, its up in a messy ponytail! I was a hairstylist and always looked so fashionable...when did I become boring soccer mom! Here is the last picture with it long. Wish me luck....I know there will be many tears!

Time to unwind.....

Its over, the wild crazy Christmas season is over! Now the only craziness left is my brother moving to Minnesota tomorrow. (If they can finish packing...i think they will be leaving later) Once they are gone it will calm down once again. I will ATTEMPT to pack up all the Christmas decorations today. I'm ready to start the new year!

Christmas Pictures...

I thought I would share the pictures I took for our Christmas cards. I can't wait to go have some done by a professional, but I thought I would wait until Emerson is about 5 months old. Here are our Christmas pictures! This is before I cut off all Jaidyns hair!

I've been tagged....twice!

The instructions were to go to my picture folder, the 6th folder and the 6th picture. So I did. The 6th folder only contained one picture so here it is:

This is from this summer...the kiddos and their scooters. (Scoodah as Joshie says...kind of a boston accent)
Now I need to tag 6 friends....
1. Kaycee at

2. Courtney at

3. Tamara at

4. Jennifer at

5. Jessica at

6. Amber at

Now for the next one.....

Rules: You must love Christmas and so must the person you give it to. List 5 things you love about Christmas. Link back to the person who gave it to you and then pass it along to as many as you like!

The 5 things I love about Christmas are:

1. The food! Any reason to over eat =)
2. Wrapping presents...i love to wrap!
3. Cold weather.
4. Shopping for that "perfect" gift.
5. Watching the kiddos rip open their presents!

I tag all the same people from above...enjoy!

My heart hurts for them.

I have been keeping up with a blog from one of the moms on BBC. They had a little girl very early. She has fought for 5 months and 3 weeks. Her family has the most positive attitude and faith. Things are not looking good for this little angel. Please keep this family in your prayers!

Last night was a rough night with Emerson. She was up almost every hour. I am so tired today but after reading the newest post about Kayleigh it really put things into perspective.

2 months!

Today Emerson is 2 months old. Now I really have no excuse for the "baby weight" unless I ate my should be gone! =) Today was another horrible day for me. I woke up and basically bite everyones head off. Jason was tempted to go to work!!! After screaming for a bit, I felt better. Here's to hoping I'll get some sleep tonight! Here is Emerson's 2 month picture.

Sleep...what is that again?

After reading the headline you probably roll your eyes and say, "DUH! You have a newborn, of coure you are not getting sleep!" And NOPE that is not the reason! Emerson is sleeping through the night, I however am not. (On the plus side, i have gotten to watch some really good movies) Around 8 When i'm getting the kids ready for bed I start getting tired and think...HOORAY I can go to sleep too! After I do the hug, kiss, tuck them in routine about 15 times...I get my second wind. I will putter around the house, go online (Usually ebay...its my drug) Last night i went to bed around 1:30-2:00...fell asleep at 4...Emerson grunted and woke me up at 5:30. I feel bad because I am starting to become really grouchy. And not just my usual sarcastic grouchy self. I'm becoming down right mean....for example...we have the option of ringback tone on our phones. You know the annoyong songs that play when you call someone instead of the usual ring ring. (I start singing along to the song and they always pick up right when i hit a high note and proceed to laugh at my tone deafness) Well, Jason uses the phone for work purposes and I thought it would be HILARIOUS to put a ringback on his phone without telling him. Now heres the mean part.....i chose Achey Breaky Heart by good ol Billy Ray Cyrus. (Thats Hannah Montanas daddy for all you little teeny boppers) Maybe I should really try to sleep more. WHo knows what I am capable of next. Shaving his eyebrows in his sleep maybe.

I have been taught the way of the blog! Thankyou Courtney! I feel really dumb that I wasn't able to figure it out but I know my own limitations! I'm so excited I feel like my blog is up to date with everyone elses!!!

Why can't I figure this out?

So, the whole blog thing has me confused. Not the actual blogging part but the setup part. I changed my layout and int he process lost all my favorite blog links! So I'm slowly adding them back. What I want to know is how every blog I go on to has it where the blogs they are following have when the last post was underneath the blogs name! What am I doing wrong here. Somebody please help me! I feel stupid because I can't do it. I have been sitting here trying to find a way to do it and instead found a way to startle the baby. She didnt know why mommy was screaming at the computer!!!!

I fell off the face of the earth!

WARNING- I rambled a lot in this post!
But I'm BACK!!! I wish I could say I haven't posted in so long because Emerson keeps me busy...BUT she doesn't. She is so easy, I really can't believe how easy she is. She is already sleeping through the night. We have not had one crying fit yet during the day and she is already 8 weeks! I wish my other two were this good. They still give me trouble all day long! The arguing and fighting all day...UGH! SO let me update you a little bit.....
Josh broke his leg, had the cast on for 3 weeks. It is off now but he still limps. He walks like a super fly!
Halloween was really tough for him because of all the stairs in front of peoples houses!

Jaidyn has been Jaidyn. I swear she thinks she is a teenager! UGH! I can't even deal with her attitude sometimes. However, she has been THE BIGGEST help to me. She helps feed Emme, gets me anything I need for her. Having such a big age difference between them is the best thing ever. No jealousy issues at all!!!

Jaidyn Loves her baby sister...and Mommy loves matching outfits!!!

Thanksgiving has come and gone. All the kids got sick the week before Thanksgiving. Josh and Jaidyn were ok, we gave them cold medicine and they were fine. Emerson had a really bad cough and because she is so little we took her to the DR. They gave her an antibiotic and she s doing much better. Mommy is doing better too!! Jason took a couple days off when I felt sick and I slept in until 11 almost everyday!! I love him, he is the best. On his days off he wont sleep in, he gets up so I can sleep in!

Now we are getting ready for Christmas int he Andrews household. I started to decorate HOWEVER I am not going all out like last year. I only have 2 trees up this year, not 5. I'm almost finished with shopping..just a couple little things left.
We took some pictures of the kids and did Christmas cards. I was pretty pleased with the pictures. Not bad for doing them myself!

And here is one of my favorite pictures. Emersons first smile for her daddy!
