Today I have said it more than once. Everything we’ve gotten for Christmas this year, more than makes up for all we had to leave behind in FL! For the past 18 months we’ve been kind of just kludging along here. We’ve missed a lot of the items we had to leave behind, because it just didn’t fit on the moving truck.
But for Christmas this year we got bikes!!! Nice bikes! I also got a gps thingie that tells me how far I went, and today I rode 2.76 miles!!! Dh must have ridden 5+ because he was hot doggin up and down the road, and him and the kiddo’s found a trail, and me and Cassie hung back towards the end of the ride. And thank you CO for having a wonderful 51 degree totally Sunny day for us to go riding!!! I don’t know how that worked out, because for two days we’ve had horrible high winds, and then today it was lovely, and tonight we’re getting pummeled with snow, and for the next 5-7 days it’s going to be staying below freezing, with sloppy snow rain mix! Blah!!!! But today was Awesome!!!!!!
When we finally came in at sundown, it was just too weird being so cold and sweating like crazy, all at the same time! I still had my cocoa though. Gotta have either hot tea or cocoa coming in out of that! I do believe that in the Spring time we are going to have a very hard time keeping everyone indoors! The kiddo’s can probably make a new friend three roads over from us too. Family was leaving from this one house, and the boy about Austin’s age ran down and waved, and said hi to us, and told us “nice bikes!” I think I’ve seen him before riding around the neighborhood, so we’ll have to see if he’s ever out and about when the kiddo’s are. We’ve given them strict rules not to cross the rail road tracks, and only stay on the three main roads around our house though, so we’ll see how they do with that. We have the walkie talkie radios too, so we’ll probably put those back in use here shortly.
Man, I can’t believe how fast they are all growing up! In just a few short years two of them will be driving!!! Cassie’s not driving yet because of her medical stuff, but in another year or so she might be able to, and Benny also! I’m gettin oooold!
Well, dh has tomorrow off! I was shocked and amazed at that! So we’re going to have a nice relaxing four day weekend here, and then get to do that all over again next weekend too! Life is good! I’m working on lots of baby items! I found a box full of squares that I need to assemble, and I’m getting that done this weekend no matter what! Then it’s hats! It’s still gonna be cold for another three or four months, and babies are gonna need their hats! When we went to see Santa a couple of nights ago, the family in front of us in the line had a weeeee small baby. Couldn’t have been five pounds. Maybe four! And that has really got me on the, awwwwww sweet baby hats kick, again. LOL Anyway, off of here to watch more Christmas movies with the kiddo’s! Hope everyone had the greatest holidays with their families!!!
