Merry Christmas!

Big Brother, Little Sister say MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Mackenna's fav present if I do say so myself! Holdiay Elephants Diaper. She shared with her cousins!

Our handsome big boy!

Cousins in their Holiday Elephant Mud Butts!

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas! We sure did!

Crib update..... it's back up. Uggh. At 2am, after an hour of going back and forth to M's room to put her back in bed we decided to put the crib back up. Not exactly 'Baby Whisperer' or 'Super Nanny' approved but we were at our wits end after no naps for days. Anywho, we are training her to stay in her crib...turned around and backed up into a wall so there is only one way out. She only climbed out once at nap time and is currently sleeping. Praise God! I do have to sit in front of the crib with my back to her (playing endless games of Angry Birds) but it took about 1/2 the time today before she fell asleep than yesterday so I think we are on the right track. I AM ordering a crib tent tho since we have to go stay at my folks in a couple of days.... Mom and Dad, expect a package!!

Big girl bed...

Ok so I just have to say this is not a happy woo hoo we have a big girl sort of announcement. If I was in charge our monkey would be in a crib til at least 12 maybe even longer. You know, to get through that hard teenage phase... having a hormone induced episode? No problem. Lift that 110lb 14yr old into her crib for a good old nap.


We. Did . Not. Make. It. That. Far. We didn't even make it to 22months. I shake my fists. Nooooooooooo! Jaden was in a crib until ummmm...... don't laugh. Almost 3.   And..... he still wont get out of bed until I go in to get him. (Don't you dare tell him anything different!)

Anywho. Mackenna, our cute little inquisitive monkey climbed out of her crib 3 times. Yes. THREE! I was unwilling (and still am) to accept the fact that she can't be in there anymore. Waaaaaaaaaaaaah. (That's me crying in the corner)

Unless some miracle happens I have no idea when she will sleep next because in her mind she doesn't belong in a cute little day bed. Never. Sleep? What's that?

Some extra prayers tonight please.

And yes.... I realize I am being a bit over dramatic. Throw me a bone.

A good case of the Mackennas has forced us to relocate the gifts! Hope this is high enough! What a precious monkey we have!!  She will either be an engineer or a pro climber!

Watch for pics from Jaden's theatrical debut!
