Lots to talk about:)

I was so excited about Finley's photo shoot...I think the pictures are beautiful.  Becca posted them on Facebook and overall everyone had kind things to say about the pictures....except for one guy who I went to high school with....he had nothing but negative things to say...I just don't get people who rain on others happiness...what happened to the "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all"....It makes me mad because many of these "direct" people, are sensitive...they can say "direct" things, but if you ever said anything like that to them, their feelings would be hurt....what is up with the double standard?

Ok...on to more positive things:)  Today was great!  It was Isabella's last day at Goddard School. We are so fortunate to have found this wonderful school. She has learned so much and is more than ready for Kindergarten.  She is sooo nervous about Kindergarten, but I know she will go great.

I dropped the girls off at school (Isabella's class had a field trip to the movies to watch Turbo)... and then headed to Christa's.  My cleaning lady was coming and she usually stays a good 8 hours. She is worth what we pay her and I am so grateful to have the help!

I did something today I have never done before.  Everyone says sleep when the baby is sleeping. Christa took her kids shopping much of the time, so Finley and I just hung out at her house.  She slept most of the time, and I actually was able to sleep as well!!!
Before I picked the girls up from school, I decided to try and find the rest of Isabella's school supply list.  My sweet husband wanted Isabella to have the "experience" of shopping for school supplies.  I, on the other hand, wanted to just pay the money online and have them magically appear on her desk.  But, I am grateful he is like this...one of the many reasons I love him!  Target had about 90% of the items...they didn't have construction paper...we have to get all kind of different colors/ sizes.  I decided to try Hobby Lobby...they didn't have them...I tried Wal-Mart (they were closed...don't know why)...tomorrow I will hit up Office Max:)

On A VERY POSITIVE NOTE....We are going SKIING!!!!! Sooo excited!!! We had such a great time 2 years ago and have been itching to go again.  We are going after Christmas to Angel Fire, New Mexico.  We are taking all of the kids and chose New Mexico because it is reasonably close (we can drive), reasonably inexpensive, and very family friendly.  It is going to be one of my weight loss goals because I want to be skinny before our trip.  This will also be our Christmas present to each other:)  I am very fortunate that we can plan this super, fun trip!!!!



Try HEB for the paper. I had the same issue finding the right paper for Sophia. They were really cheap too!
