so....turns out the haircut isn't as ugly as i once thought. i'm getting used to it and i am definitely not complaining about how much easier it is to do.

in other news- i have a new nephew! dave's sister jenn just had her 3rd baby- eliseo gonzalez.
he is so cute! and so little and soft....
i once said that i would ALWAYS wish it was me whenever someone had a new baby.....but i think that maybe being a single mom of 4 for 6 months is taking it's toll on me.
i actually don't think that i wish it was me. i don't think.... :)
but he is awfully sweet. can't wait to hold him again!

and i also have to confess that i reached my limit last week. something had to give- it was either the cats or the kids.....
i felt really bad for returning them but i had cleaned up kitty diarrhea for 5 days.
i had given them rice cause i read that that would help their stomachs, and then they were squirting out rice poop....waaay too much for me.
and the day that tekoa had rice chunks on her arm and wren got into the litter box completely sealed the deal.
i am officially done with kittens forever, and officially the world's cruelest most heartless mother.
and i am COMPLETELY OKAY with that.

christmas chaos is in full swing and i keep getting waves of overwhelmedness, but i just keep reminding myself that "i can only do the best i can do" :)
with 4 kids (times 3, cause a few others need me to get gifts for my kids from them) 11 nieces and nephews, a goddaughter, a few siblings, and 10 teachers to shop for; 100 christmas cards (i'm cutting back on cards this year- if you don't get one it has nothing to do with you. i mean probably not) to get out, 6 christmas events, 3 kids christmas parties, and 3 christmas programs to attend and including bringing food and gifts to each event i am officially busy.

oh yea, and i turn 30 somewhere in the midst of all that.
i have huge plans for that night. i will not only be attending an elementary school christmas program but leading the kids in a performance of few christmas songs.

don't like wishing christmas away, but my sights are completely set on our mexico vacation which is only 5 weeks away!!!!
i still can't believe we are really leaving the new house and kids behind for 6 days!!!
i can hardly even imagine what that will be like....

been forgetting to take pictures of the house but hopefully i'll take some this weekend.
the back porch has a roof and dave's been working on framing the inside and electricity.
and we're trying to pick out tubs, showers, and faucets in our spare time :)
