Big girl bed update...Last night was AMAZING! Never woke up in the night, yeah! Slept from 8:30pm-6:30am. She is a rockstar!

Goodbye Baby!

This was a big weekend for Shay! We switched to the "big girl bed" longer my baby. She AND Conley were very excited. They jumped on the bed and loaded it full of her blankies and stuffed animals. She started off with nap on Saturday and did AWESOME! Last night was not the greatest but she tried hard! Her room is really cold and I really think she was cold and not just protesting her bed. She again did awesome at nap and even better tonight going to bed. Hopefully tonight goes well!!!! So now onto big girl stuff, yeah!!!!

You can barely see her in the corner because her pants match her pink blankies (not on purpose)

For now she has a mattress & boxspring on the floor. And yes, Conley's car sheets until I get her some flowers or girly something. We did put up a bed rail along the side and pillows on the floor at the end. She has my beautiful wrought iron white bed waiting for her when she is ready to be higher off the floor.

Conley rides with Nate on both the snowmobiles and the dirt bike. I was always concerned about his safety (big shocker) and wanted him in full gear. Nate found a great deal on a helmet that can be used for both dirt bikes (summer) and snowmobiles (winter) with extra parts for the different seasons. The helmet looks just like Nate's. Conley is in love...he had to put both in his room on display, hilarious!
Here are the matching helmets

On another "big news" note...we started working out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For those who know me well, know I NEVER workout! I have been blessed with my dad's family's metabolism and body type. It however isn't shedding baby belly fat naturally (shocking), so I have been keeping my eyes open for something that will get me me that is what it is going to take. Well...I found it- P90X! Nate and I are going to do it together and we started tonight AND it KICKED MY BUTT! I am a weak individual. Nate did awesome. We decided to take before pics and after pics 90 days from now. I am determined to stick this out! I have been known to get on a workout kick and drop out 1 day later. This helps that Nate is excited about it and doing it with me. Pray for me...I going to need it :)

Let it snow!

Here are the fearsome twosome ready to roll. They were in charge of clearing the driveway tonight! Conley wore his snow pants and jacket for 2 hours (even while inside), he finally took it all off to put on pjs. He loves the snow and helping his dad!!!
Shay thought she wanted to go until Nate turned on the snow blower and she quickly changed her mind. She is always scared of loud noises, hates the dirt bike, vacuum, snow blower, etc.
The boys hard at work. Nate is leaving soon to go into town to get one layer plowed at our rental properties! Hopefully it's not too bad and he returns soon, I need his help in the is almost finished!!! Only 3 nights of organizing and filing of papers, we both are vowing to be better in this area of our lives!

New do!

Conley and Nate are down working in Tom's shop and Shay is in bed. Yeah, peace and quiet!!! We often play hard and loud after dinner (it is the only time with our children during the week) so I love the moment both are in bed and the house is quiet. I should be organizing Nate's office (I promised to finish it this week), but I thought I would catch up on blogging.

Poor Conley inherited from me the inability to keep the eyes open when smiling! Poor buddy!

We cut Conley's hair last night and Nate's. Nate is on a saving kick and decided to forgo the trips to the barber and save money by having me cut his hair. He is funny about it being done perfect, so I was very nervous. Both him and Conley got a buzz and I think I did a great job!!!

Shay was really into saying cheese during this picture. I think Conley was talking to me, big shocker! Conley talks almost nonstop. He always talks the whole way home from daycare and any other time we are in the car. He also talks his way through dinner. He is so funny!

If you look close you can see that Conley is gripping his "monies". He was given $1 from me the other day, when he was curious about my wallet and money being in it. He then began the death grip, and carried it with him at all times that day...including bed!

An update on Shay: We had a 6 month check up for her tubes and they are both still in!!!! Hopefully they will stay in throughout the winter months. Last winter was awful with her being sick all the time. We don't have another appointment for 6 more months. She is talking more each day and you can understand her better everyday. She can say her ABC's and count to 10 with some coaching. She is really growing in maturity the last couple months. About 2 months ago she was moved into the 2 year old room at daycare. They felt she was mature enough and would benefit from the learning activities...I would have to agree. She is developing so fast on all levels and is no longer my baby :(

Shay and her "mimi"...she loves her paci!
