I too visit old threads in my DDC's. I think I have gotten lucky b/c I still talk to people from Josie's ddc (dec 06), this one (feb 09) and from Coraline's (april 12). I have even met some of the people in the dec 06 and april 12 clubs.
so who has letters to santa? Junie wrote one with me and 1 or 2 with her sisters.
Thank you for getting us all the toys. Me can do school together with my friend Erin. And halloween is fun. Me can go trick or treating with my family and you. Love forever. Me had a big talk with you and me want a pretend lalaloopsy that can move her hands and talk. and love and love and love forever. a big love.
p.s. me want more leggins and skirt-es.
so I got a new car which is awesome b/c now my 9 year old can sit in the back again, I am feeling much safer about that, plus it gets better gas mileage and it's pretty awesome. Car payments are new and I can't say I like them but I do think it was needed, we couldn't just keep buying crappy cars that only lasted us 3 years.
Christmas stuff- I haven't really started. I am feeling like there is a lot going on right now (researching schools b/c I am pretty positive we are changing the girls school and we have to check out all the different public school options), and okay that's all but for some reason life seems like a lot, it may just be the four kids and husband always working. That seems lame. I need to start making some presents. I am feeling a bit 'um stressed b/c we are off food stamps now but things are still super tight, plus we have a million bills due that we don't usually have so it might all be making me feel just a teensy bit depressed.plus the girls are all having separate birthdays this year b/c 1 and 10 are big deal birthdays in our family so there will be no combined birthday. For the record I am happy and glad we are off food stamps, I hated being on them I just don't like running out of vegetables and I need to restock my pantry/baking stuff. overall I feel like we are making progress and that we are further than we have been in a long time and I know this patch is temporary.
Speech therapy is going well for Juniper, they've only started on 2 letters but between that and me trying to work on her pronunciation quite a few people have mentioned how much more of what she says they can understand.
oh and a family shot of us
