It's been a while...

I have been so busy lately! Holy moly. You'd figure that I'd be full of free time since I got laid off mid-December. Wrong.

Mom broke her ankle Dec 30th. Which means I took over her afternoon child care duties, watching my niece & nephew. Talk about birth control!! I am so glad I didn't hop in bed and make baby #2 when I wanted to a few months back. I am not ready. It wouldn't be fair to new baby or Lucas. I will definitely be waiting until Lucas is around 4-5 years old. I want to concentrate on him for now. He's so much fun, and his personality is unbelievable. I'm not ready to split my attention... yet. I have plenty of love to give, but for now I'd like to keep things the way they are.

Speaking of Lucas, he is growing up SO fast. He's been out to play in the snow, and he LOVES it. He runs, and slides, and falls all over the place. It's too much fun. I pulled him around the yard in a sled, and he was soooo giggly. I can't wait to take him sledding. I'm happy to report that Lucas got a couple "babies" for Christmas. I got him a small one, my mom bought him a doll-sized Handy Manny, and Claudette gave him John's cabbage patch doll that he had as a kid. He loves them all. We also got him an Ernie, Oscar the grouch, and a few other stuffed toys. He treats them like his children. My sister (at my request) bought him a shopping cart, and Lucas puts all the kids in the cart and goes all over the house. I'm so glad I didn't listen to the naysayers. He is equally interested in "typical" boy things. He LOVES Thomas the train, matchbox cars, his Mater ride-on toy, and his very first power wheel too! My aunt bought John a remote controlled Tony Hawk toy at a yard sale, because she thought it was hilarious. Well, it is now one of Lucas' favorite toys. (photos when I get myself back in gear).

Santa BoB, John's business partner and our good friend, bought us Kinect for our xbox. OH how I love it. So fun! We bought a dance game last week that we still haven't tried out. I think tonight should be the night. It looks like a blast, especially because the game plays back a video of you trying the routines when you're done. I'm not exactly coordinated, so it's hilarious to watch the playbacks.

We are bringing back our tradition of Sunday dinner. I'm very excited to have a day to spend as a family, and an evening to see the friends that we consider family. It will be a lot of fun! Our friends have been so supportive of us in the past few years, it's nice to be able to have them over to enjoy their company.

Oh, I smell one ripe diaper. Time to run... more updates later.
