Have I mentioned lately . . .

That things are CRAZY?? Thus no regular posts. We're good, just extremely busy. Its "that time" again at work. Summer has been stuffy, and Garrett is just a crazy handful. Not to mention playdates, finding time to workout, clean house. Shower . . . you get the drift . . .

Quick summery--did a "Work Out before you Pig Out" workout with Lisa on Thanksgiving Day (Thank you Allison for the suggestion!!), missed out on good company with the Shumans because of Summer's congestion (which is coming and going, so I've decided it isn't anything other than a cruddy reaction to how cold it has been) . . . Got ourselves bicycles, which we've spent a lot of time riding (10-12 miles, go us!). Brad attempted to shop on Black Friday (there was a really good deal on a wagon), but struck out. We vegged the rest of the day, and did a bit of online shopping (bike trailer for Garrett at half off!) Went to a sneek peak of the new section at metro zoo on Saturday. They had a ton of fun things that Garrett loved:

Did some Discovery Toys stuff over the weekend, but otherwise spent time with my kids and catching up on sleep. Got the Christmas stuff out of the attic, but haven't put much up yet. Did lots and lots of work.

Kiddo update: Garrett's sleep continues to be a struggle. But oh well. Summer is fantastic, and Garrett continues to be the best big brother . . . She loves the walker when she is awake, and pretty much hates to be laying down. She loves tummy time though, as long as someone is around to entertain her. She continues to sleep fairly well.

Below are a series of pictures from the weekend of Garrett playing cars with her. He is so great, he'll share his cars and show her how to play with them. He is always worrying after her and making sure she is happy. As much as he drives me nuts sometimes, it warms my heart beyond measure to see how wonderful he is with Summer. He is never, ever careless with her. He's the best big brother a little girl could ask for, and she seems to know that. You can really see the dynamic between them in the photos.

Wow! That last picture of Garrett looks a lot like you! Isn't it amazing how much they change as they grow...
Tis the season to be busy.
