Getting ready for Christmas

A little over a week away and I'm almost ready for it to be over! Not really, maybe I'm just ready to be off work! I just want to relax and be with my babies. I feel like all I ever do is get them ready for school and get them ready for bed with a few minutes thrown in for playing and snuggling. I feel like I never have time to do anything. I guess that's just the life of a mother, so I better get used to it.

One of the things I've been stressing about (which is pretty silly) is our Christmas cards. For some reason I think the picture has to be perfect with matching outfits and adorable natural smiles with all the perfect lighting ect, ect. So, I went and had them professionally done before Thanksgiving (plenty of time to have them sent out by Christmas). Well, I didn't like that Addie didn't smile so I've been trying to take pictures myself all month with no success. The most difficult thing in the world is trying to get a picture of a 2 1/2 year old and a 6 month old together with both of them smiling and looking at the camera! I finally decided to use the original professional pictures and now I have to rush them to them back in time. I think I need drugs! I hope I relax about all this meaningless stuff as the kids get older or I'm going to make them neurotic.

Thursday will mark the 4 year anniversary of when Kyle and I said "I Do"! It really does not feel that long and we've been together almost 8 years. I was 21 when we met and now I'm almost 30! Good Lord, I feel old. And someone please explain to me why Kyle keeps getting better looking every year and I'm getting worse! That's ok, I'll be fixing some of my flaws in a couple of years (hello, D cup!)

In honor of 4 years here are a couple of pictures of the two of us. One on our wedding day and one from a recent wedding.

And here are a couple of attempts at Christmas pictures that I'm not using:
