I was just on the phone with my sister and I was laughing at us. We kept saying REALLY? SERIOUSLY? And after a while of it we sounded like we were doing an SNL skit. It was making me laugh and I am still in that mind set so I am going to continue with this while I give you my update.
So.My husband tricked me into marrying him. Really. Yep. He did. Planning cute dates, giving thoughtful gifts... those days are over. Really Craig? Really? You can't get your wife a gift or plan a date on Valentines Day? Seriously? You are the worst. Really.
Last week my brother and sister in law went to Mexico. Really? And you are going to leave me with your two little boys in the freezing cold. Really!? And they are both going to get the flu and vomit everywhere! Really? Seriously? And then the whole house is going to get sick! Really? All while you are on the beach eating tacos! Really!? Ya. Really.
Okay... I'm done whining. In all seriousness my husband is not the worst. Over all he is a great husband... but he did trick me into marrying him. That is for sure. Most days I love him a lot but right now he is in trouble for all of the deceit and lies. THE LIES! What happened to the romantic side of him after the "I do's"!? I will not let it die without a fight. So... that is why I am throwing a little temper tantrum.
Dre and Finn were perfect angels and are the cutest little boys in the world. They are impossible to say no to and for the first time in my life I didn't get mad at the person waking me up in the morning. They are just too cute. It broke my heart when they got sick and were so miserable. Then I got sick and miserable with them and cleaning up throw up has to be the worst mothering duty of them all. But I miss them now and miss the little guys running up to me and saying "hold you please?"... its hard work that you mothers do, but you have to admit that it feels pretty good.
For Presidents Day weekend Craig and I invited some of our friends that live here to come to my parents house. Both couples have two kids so it was a packed house but we had so much fun! I definitely love having a lot of people around. Maybe its what happens when there are 6 kids in your family... but being surrounded by a lot of friends and family is my favorite. All the kids ran around in my mom's new awesome basement, Crystal threw Dre a fun Pirate themed birthday party and bought all the kids swords and little gifts which they all LOVED, she made one of her infamous Mexican meals, we ate, we shopped, the girls ran away to see a movie, but mostly we just took it easy. Even if you are just playing rock band or watching The office...I definitely believe THE MORE THE MERRIER! It was a fun weekend and I love that we have made such awesome fun friends here in the city. unfortunately one of the couples has to move in a couple of weeks. I'm really going to miss them. Friends like them have really made being new to this big city so much easier! I'm so glad we got to spend that weekend with them before they have to go and we are crossing our fingers that they can return soon!
This post is really long and has zero pictures. REALLY!?
