sweet nothings (please not in my ear)

I have very sensitive ears. I don't like any breathing near them, but that is an entirely different story.

I am about ready to skip Christmas all together. I'm loving the holidays. Don't you worry! It's just that Megan, my youngest sister, just had her first baby. I can't wait to see him. I have a visit to AZ booked on the 28th( his due date ), but now that is not soon enough. I would appreciate it if the world could just quickly fast forward to the 28th. I know, Christmas is all good too. I'm just very impatient ( ask my children ). This is Megan and Reuben. The proud new parents of
Catcher Milo Craghead. 9 lbs, 15 oz, 22.5 inches! Can you believe that? For a first baby? Ouch! Everyones doing awesome, even without me there!

The very, very exciting things that I was busy with in my ever so controversial previous post were; (is that the right punctuation?)

VT Luncheon. Very fun, but at my house, which means there was lots of cleaning to be done.
Girls night at Bridget's house. Hilarious! We did get some very important topics discussed. (Twilight, Blogging, breast feeding in public)
Book Club dinner. Also at my house, which means more cleaning and much more decorating. Super fun!
Chris's birthday dinner with Aunt Sharon. Very nice. Not at my house. Hallelujah! Thank you Sharon!
Teacher presents. Shortbread in pretty packages.
Running a million errands. I did not grab any sphere shaped snacks this time.
Planning Christmas dinner. It's at my house! Crap! Just teasing, I can't wait!

I know everyone has been this busy. It's part of the season. I hope this didn't sound whiny because I really do love it all.

Congratulations on your new nephew! What a fun Christmas gift for the whole family. I'll be hoping the next few days go quickly so you can go snuggle with the new babe :)

Anyway, congrats to Megan and the Ginormous baby. Wow, that's huge!

Its fun to see how much you and your sister look alike.
The days will start to fly and you'll be there before you know it.

Well, no, actually. It's a colon, not a semi colon. Although, I think it's silly that there is more to a semi colon than to a colon. Colons are used to start lists. Semi colons are used to join two independent clauses that support each other or in place of a comma in a list that has commas inside of said list.

I get to see Catcher first! I just had to rub that in, since Elise and Monique are the jerks whom have already held him.

I know you love being crazy busy!

KrisBo said...

dont forget i am a jerk taht already held him, and so did both Lisa's. LOL

CUTE little sis. Oh man, I see Mason in her, and a little Boston. Have a great time in AZ. Soak up some rays for me.

Btw, I did not get to hold him until the 23rd. I went to the hospital the day he was born, but his grandmother snatched him up and wouldn't put him down. Emma went with me and apparently was one of like 2 children that they decided to tell could not enter because of RSV season, so I just ran back for a second to drop off some baloons Emma had picked out for him. She had to stay at the nurses station. I didn't see him again until he came home on Sunday. (but then, he sure was snuggly)
