getting ready to jet

So here is a quick recap of what has been going on at the Christensen household.

I have stopped nursing evie because she kept biting me

Evie eats solids like a champ.

She now loves those sweet potato puffs and is getting used to apples

We had some friends and their projector over last night to watch White Christmas. Classic.

Dan is playing intramural basketball.

We all did a lot of Christmas shopping this last weekend

Dan is being super cryptic about my gift, which just makes me so curious I want to die

I have cleaned all the bathrooms and still have a lot of laundry and dishes to do before we leave.

Because we are leaving on Wednesday to spend the week with my family. Hooray!

I love Christmas time. I cannot wait to see the fam. What are you doing for the holidays?

work party

Today was Dan's work party and it was a lot fun. We ate some yummy food, played some fun games, and got out of the house, which was a huge plus for me. Let's be honest, we could have gone anywhere to do anything and I would have loved every moment of it, but let me just tell you about today and I think you'll agree that today was awesome by any standards. One of the games we played was a Christmas version of project runway, and guess who got to be the model for our team? That's right folks, Daniel. Watching these boys trying to make something cute out of wrapping paper was like watching a train wreck and not being able to do anything about it.

Dan is the "special" one
 Yep, there was music playing and they did the cat walk. It was the highlight of my week. Possibly my month. Poor Dan, but he was a really good sport and it was hysterical.

After the Christmas party we went and did a little shopping for Christmas pajamas and such, which was a lot of fun actually because we never go shopping together. Dan HATES shopping, but he had a good time picking out pajamas. We went to dinner after that and ate some yummy food and now we're cuddling on the couch watching Modern Family. Pretty great day.

something about nothing

I'm tired of not having a car and never being able to go anywhere
Dan gets to go play basketball and to scouts
but I stay here
and do the dishes, repeatedly
and the laundry
and clean the living room
and play with baby toys
and watch yo gabba gabba
and dance around the kitchen with my baby

And I really do love it
Except that sometimes it becomes too much
and I feel like I need a break
a break from being in the house all day long
ya know? 
My problems are pretty unoriginal and I know I don't have anything to complain about really.

And most days I'm just fine staying here all day
but today Dan went straight from work to a basketball game
and then straight to scouts from there
so I can't go run the errands I need to because he won't get home until 8ish

No, we can't share the car. We thought about that, but traffic is so bad that if I were to take Dan to and from work everyday, that would be 4 hours in the car a day for Evie. No thanks.
Also, Dan can't use the public transportation, like carpools and such, because he doesn't have a set schedule.
So here I am. Stuck. Oh well. There are worse things in life. It's a good thing I love that Evie girl so much
If you read this whole thing, you are a champion
sorry about complaining.

8 months

My baby is eight months old today. She is becoming more and more independent too. She doesn't like to just sit on the couch and relax with me anymore. It's just go go go with her these days. She does something I like to call the scoot. It isn't quite crawling, but it gets her where she wants to go; so now I need to baby proof my house. Evie has turned into such a sweet little girl. She loves to give me hugs, reaches for me and Dan, and giggles all day long. I try to find new ways to keep us both entertained during the day, and most of the time she's pretty easy going and happy to watch me do the dishes. Lately she's been helping me decorate and redecorate our house. She loves to sit on my tummy and feel me laugh cause it moves her up and down, which in turn makes her laugh. I'm loving watching her learn new things and see her little personality come out. She is incredibly stubborn (where does she get that?) and determined, couple that with incredibly smart and you've got a dangerous trifecta. Lately she's been a little sick, so that's been no fun, but overall she is just adorable and so much fun. I'm looking forward to this next month and what it brings.

what to get him

I have a problem, friends, and I would like your help. I can never think of anything good to get Dan on holidays. I have no idea what to get him for Christmas this year. When I ask him what he wants he says things like gloves and thermals for army, which ill get him obviously, but I would like to get him something good. Something that he doesn't necessarily need but that he'll enjoy. He always gets me such great gifts. Any ideas?

When you give a girl a smartphone

she will insist on doing everything with the phone
like taking pictures
and blogging (by accident)
and facebook stalking
So eventually you will have to do an intervention
because who needs that many pictures of Evelyn (everyone. right?)
and it's okay to be out of contact with everyone for a little while (gasp)
because you can check your email and watch netflix on your computer and tv
no need to do such things on your phone
Except you can!
So, if you give this girl a smartphone, be prepared for all the crazy that comes with it
Merry Christmas to meeeee!

p.s. Dan may be regretting his decision to get me a droid for Christmas.
