Today was a fairly busy day. We took the babes to get their pictures taken with Santa. Jon Kent surprisingly did very well. He started to cry, but once the photographer started playing peek-a-boo with him, he smiled. Zoey slept. The next stop was to have actual Christmas pictures taken. We went to Sears. At first the lady seemed seriously rude because we didn't have an appointment. We were walk-ins. But honestly, who can make an appointment when you have a one year old and a newborn? Their routines are so unpredictable at this point that it would be ridiculous to try and guess when a good time to take pictures would be. Anyway, once we got back there to start taking the pictures, the lady lightened up and we actually got really good pictures from it. And another bonus, was when we went to pay for the pictures, the lady saw Kent's jacket (Federal Prison) and asked if he was in the military. He said no, but that he did work for the Department of Justice. She said, well that counts. As long as it was for the government. So we got $23 taken off our total! I was happy about that!! After taking pictures, we went and pretty much finished up our Christmas shopping. We only have one person left to buy for and that is my Daddy. We would probably have gotten his, but Zoey got hungry. So we just headed back to the car so that I could feed her. Once we got home, we went and looked at the progress on the house. We have walls!! We were really surprised at how quickly they got them up. They still have to come in and mud the walls, but everything else is up. Even the ceiling! I am beyond happy about that! We are seriously thinking that in about a month or a month and half, we will be in our new home. I for one will be glad to be done with it all. Once we are moved in, maybe our lives can settle down a bit. Being pregnant, having a baby, building a house, and moving into that house all within a year can be tiring on a girl! Y'know?!?! Anyway, there is my update for today. Enjoy the pictures of the house.
