Boost of Energy

I am not sure where this came from, but I am ready for the New Year. You can tell by all the work I am doing around the house today. I normally wait for New Years Day to take down all the decorations, but today I got an itch to do it. I got everything down, got all the furniture back where it goes. Put all the everyday pictures back on the walls and mantle. I even went outside and took all the Christmas lights down. I love that my kids take long naps. So whats next, I am going to clean out the closets and get rid of toys and clothes that don't fit the kiddlets anymore. So if anyone needs clothes or toys lemme know.

Two more days and 2009 is here!!!! I think I know why I am so excited about '09, my baby will be one, and he is gonna start walking, and April is going to be a huge month for us. I turn 30 and it will be Matt and I's 5 year wedding anniversary.

The end of the holiday weekend.

Well it has been a wonderful few days off, well I worked last night but it was only 3-11 and it was over at trauma. When I am working there, it isn't so much work as it is a learning experience. But that is a whole other subject, it is amazing what they can do these days to save lives.

Well my grandfather and brothers came up for a couple days, we had a little Christamas celebration friday when they got up here. Then on saturday I made chili cheese bake. It is a awesome family dish that my mother use to make every Christmas morning, and it is a tradition that we have all carried on since my mother passed away. After breakfast Matt took, Steven, Matthew and his friend John out to the desert to shoot their guns at targets. Matt likes doing that, it is a huge stress releaser for him. I hung out with Grandpa and the kids while they were gone. We had a good time, both Josh and Nikki love their papa Phil, as Nikki calls him. It is so cute to hear her say "mama where PAPA Phil, I love PAPA Phil".

They all left this morning, after that we cleaned the house and did laundry, just getting ready for the week ahead. I didn't pick up any extra hours at trauma this week, so it will be just one of our normal weeks. I work tomorrow and the kids go to "school". I can not believe that thursday is new years day. Matt and I don't have any plans, we will just hang out at our home where it is warm and SAFE!!!!

Here are a couple pictures of Uncle Matthew playing with the kids.

Merry Christmas

Well we are coming to the end of a wonderful Christmas day. I am playing on my new laptop an early Christmas present I bought myself, and I made a decision for 2009 and I am going to try a blog at least a few times a week to clear my head and update everyone with what is going on here in the Barth household. I know I have tried blogging before and slack off pretty quickly but this time I am going to try harder.

Well we had a wonderful Christmas holiday, I had to work yesterday, but it wasn't to bad. It was fun getting to see the excited families coming to meet the new little members of their families on Christmas Eve. What an exciting Christmas present a new little one.

Well this morning the kids didn't wake up until OMG....7 am. I had to wake up around 6am to put the ham in the oven and then I went and laid in bed until Nikki woke up. First thing she said was Merry Christmas Mommy, it was the sweetest thing I ever heard. Joshy didn't know what to think about the whole Christmas celebration, he woke up and their were new toys he had never seen before. His face was priceless!!!!!

Matt's side of the family all came over around 10am and we had a wonderful breakfast, thanks Matt for helping me cook. Everyone hung out until around one in the afternoon, and then Matt, Nikki, Josh and I all relaxed and spent the afternoon as a family. We don't get to do that to much these days with all the work Matt and I have been doing. I have been really busy picking up hours over at UMC for Christmas money. I think I am going to slow down now that the holidays are slowly coming to an end. I am going to wrap this up for now, gotta go get the kiddies to bed, and I am going to go lay down my self.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, can you believe 2009 will be here next week.
