Pics that didn't get posted with the last post

Christmas Day

Christmas Day was a great day!My kids have alway's went to bed Christmas Eve and slept all night..Not this year!The kids went to bed at 9pm and at 11pm I heard feet on the floor so I got out of bed to see which child it was,It was kaden sitting with his stocking!Out of 8 stockings he found his lol.When he noticed we had spotted him he very quickly laid down and pretended to  be asleep.He ended up sleeping with me and Tom that night with no more trouble from him.Not long after Kaden fell asleep another child got up.Finally we realized those kids was working shifts and once every 5 minutes someone was up checking stockings!They never touched the presents under the tree thank goodness.At 5:20am Christmas morning Tommy woke me up so we could all open presents which meant waking all the kids from their long night.I was all for it thinking they would take a nap sometime.Well we opened all the presents and I put the ham and turkey in the oven and yep I went back to bed and slept til Tom woke me up at 9:20am.We then proceeded to finish cooking and picking up all the trash before the company arrived.Our neighbor and my parents came to eat with us.They all laughed and chatted and just really made my house noisey lol.We all enjoyed ourselves but once all the company was gone me and Tom both went back to sleep.This time we slept for about 2 hours then once again got woke up.It was a very long never ending day but it was great!I hope to have many more holidays just like it!Sunday morning I dropped the kids with my ex's mom so she could have Christmas with them.I did proceed to pick most of them back up (Kelsey and Brenten stayed but Brenten came home yesterday and Ashley went to stay with my mom until tonight).I was having a mean dream about my ex last night something about me letting him know I could have his house and truck and there was nothing he could do about it then I heartd kids and woke up to Justin and Brenten going at it full force.BLAH not a great way to start the day but everyone survived and they have seperated themselves from each other so now it's a good day!I have done laundry and cleaned the kitchen and living room today so now all I have to do is wait on the propane man to get here.Do you see this picture of Tom scrubbing the toilet?I miss placed him on Christmas Day and this is what I found him doing!I knew I got my Mr.Perfect this time!On New Year's day it will be our 9 month anniversary so we are dropping the kids off at the sitter and going out for a couple of hours.Justin just informed me that there is a skunk outside so I went to the window to see the stinky thing walking toward Kaden so I ran to the door and got Kaden in the house and just a few seconds later the stinky thing was on the porch!We have 2 stray dogs that are keeping the stinky thing trapped now so we just will be spending the day in the house.I think thats all for now!

Merry Christmas

Christmas is finally upon us!I have gotten everything done except the cooking and I started that this morning.Tonight we go to Tom's parents to do Christmas then tomorrow we will have ours at home.Last Saturday we went to my parents to do Christmas there.I don't ever recall going to so many places lol.The neighbor lady has had to put her husband in the nursing home and he now lays in icu so I invited her to our place for Christmas and she said she would be here.All her kids and step kids live in Alaska so she has no close family and it's just not right to spend the holiday's alone.I  have added some recent pics.Kaden had asked Santa for a tractor he could ride and since Tom works at the transfer station someone brought in a John Deere tractor and brought it home for lil man and he lives on that thing.I feel very blessed this year!I caught word yesterday that my ex is gonna be a daddy so congrats to him!I now have my 5 kids full time and they are enjoying that.They was tired of bouncing back and forth.My ex was polite enough to text me to let me know he no longer wished to have the kids for visits any longer and he would be willing to sign what parental rights he had away.That was fine n dandy with  me!I know it's a short post so enjoy the pics.Until next time...Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
