Still around

We are still here! Things are going good. We have good days and not so good days but over all things are better then they were a couple months ago.

We has a great Thanksgiving, we did a potluck with several neighbors and it was fun. I'm not the best a cooking turkey so it was nice not to have to stress about it. The kids were able to play with friends and a good time was had by all. Grace said the blessing which was very sweet.

2009 is coming to an end very quickly. I think the time has gone by very fast. I read something once " Motherhood: the days are long but the years are short" I think it's so true. Time goes by so fast I'm just trying to enjoy it and not worry about the small things.

I like Grace's new doctor, he really seems to know what he's talking about and spends a lot of time listening to her. He thinks she has OCD along with the ADHD and thinks that explains most of her behaviors. It makes sense the way he explained it to us. He also said that unlike adults as she gets older it should improve which is always nice to hear.

Brianna has been quite the handful lately. We can tell she is tired of all the attention Grace was getting and has stepped up her behavior. We are trying to nip it in the bud and so far it seems to be working.

Josh took the week of Thanksgiving off. It was so nice to have him home for a couple days while the kids were at school! We got some stuff done around the house, not as much as we would have liked but still a little progress is better then none! Plus the girls loved having him at the bus stop when they got home from school.

Both girls are busy with Girl Scouts. They did the preorders for cookies and had fun with that. They were so cute learning what they were going to say to the neighbors. Both sold almost 40 boxes! That's a lot of cookies to hand out in Jan!

I've been making a bunch of cakes lately for my neighbors. I don't like to eat cake but I like to make them. Gives me something to do and it makes me happy to make them for other people when they like them. I'm strange I know. It's the little things, right? I'd like to take a cake decorating class, they they could look prettier too. :)

Ok enough rambling for now I just wanted to post an update on what we were up too around here.
