Our Crazy Life!

Life has been nonstop lately! You can definitely tell that the holiday season is just right around the corner. And Rylee's birthday is coming up!! The girls have been asking to put up the Christmas Tree also! Ever since Halloween they have been so excited. We actually went as far as to put the actual tree up with the lights but no ornaments. Its so cute. And the girls are super excited. We are trying to wait for Daddy to get home before we do the ornaments. I just hope its soon since I am not sure how long they can hold out! (or me!!) :-) We have started writing out our Christmas list for Santa and will mail them soon. It just feels so weird that it is already Christmas time, granted Thanksgiving is first I know but as soon as they put all the Christmas stuff in the store it feels like time to celebrate! Madison said that it isnt Christmas time until it snows. Poor kid! If only she realized that it didnt snow here! HEHE! However, it did snow for her first Christmas. Well it is what us Southern folks would call snow :) It was so fun! But I am sure she doesnt remember since she was only 5mths old! But it did happen. I am pretty sure that is the only time since I was born. But it was great.
Anyways....I have a couple of pictures that have NOTHING to do with this blog but they are cute! It was from when we went play at the Playplace McDonalds. They had tons of fun!

7 intresting things about me!!

I saw that a friend did it and I thought it was really cute. So I decided to do it too!

7 intresting things about me-new or old!

1. I love being with my kids. They truly are the greatest kids ever. We have soo much fun together! I am sure every mom would say that but its true. They are seriously my best friends. I would pick hanging out with them over anything. Staying at home with them has been so wonderful!

2. I have a very odd relationship with my family! I love them more than anything but we have our moments! But I would do anything for them and they know it!

3. I have always wanted to get back in pagaents! I did them when I was younger and want to get back in them! I loved it. Getting all dressed up and being put on stage in front of hundreds of people. That was great. One day I will do the Mrs. USA pagaent...maybe!

4. Colin and I were both dating other people when we first realized that we wanted to date! And ended up ending our relationships both of 2 years and started dating each other 2 weeks later :) And we were oh so different when we first started dating!! And neither one of us thought it would last past the summer! HA! Oh and I used to steal his poptarts from him all the time!!!!!! HAHA!

5. The first time I met Colins parents I was BEYOND nervous! It was hilarious. The whole time during dinner I laughed and they just thought I was being nervous but really it was Colin's brother kcking me under the table but he wouldnt admit it! He just wanted to make fun of me!

6. I am VERY scared of flying. I actually flew for the first time ever when we went to Disney World in July! It was VERY nerve-racking! And my kids thought it was GREAT.

7. Colin and I started dating on June 28, got engaged 5 years later on June 28, and then got married a year after that on June 28! It all just seemed to work out on that day! It was great! And I got to have a fairytale weddng with my prince charming!

Now I tag everyone on my blog list!!! Enjoy~!

The Election!

Since I haven't changed my address yet I needed to go back to Prairieville to vote yesterday. Which is OK with me because we can see our family and friends! Although yesterday we just spent time with Family! My uncle (well actually he is my Godfather) was running for Justice of Peace in the Gonzales area. So he had a big shin-dig to watch the results! It was great. We had good food and we all got to see what the results were.

We actually were just going to come in town and vote then leave because Madison wasnt feeling too great. She was pretty grumpy and tired. She has been doing this for a while. I think this time change might be getting to her. Who knows. She had a tiny fever but nothing too bad. And she really wanted to go so I turned around and we went celebrate with them :) And much to my surprise she was fine the whole time. Although she was clingy at the end when she was ready to go to bed! But that isnt anything new!

The party was great. There was a lot of people there and we had a huge projector so everyone was able to see as the votes came in. And let me tell you that is nerve-racking. I was dying. I can only imagine how my uncle was doing! He kept pacing back and forth and only watched it every now and then! And they came in SLOW!!! Well not really but it surely felt like it! The good thing is he stayed in the lead the whole time! But we had to wait for 22 precients! So finally the time came and it was on numbe 21 and he was ahead by a little over 600 votes! So all we needed was one more....and after about 5 minutes it finally came in! 7,613-Jamie Frederic Braud, 8,517-John C. Hebert!!!! He won!! 47.2% to 52.8%!!! It was great! I was very excited! And so proud!

Halloween over??

Well, Halloween came and now is gone! The girlsreally enjoyed it this year! We all went over to my sisters house in Central to trick-or-treat there! All the kids got to ride on the hay ride! how cute right. Well I would show you but of course like all the other occasions my camera is MIA! ARG! Me and that thing will go at it one day! HA! I am so mad at myself! I always forget it when I need it! HA! Oh well. I should be getting pictures soon and will post them! We all had a great time! Madison was knda over it after an hour and a half but not Rylee! She didnt want to stop! My little trooper! It was so cute! And plus she got LOADS of candy!! We have enough candy now for the next 10 years! HA!
Halloween came quick and left even quicker. Rylee I think misses it! And wants to do it every night now! She put hr costume back on this morning and kept saying trick or treat! It was precious!
But now comes the real fun! Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS! Santa is shopping early this year! He knows just what the girls want and is ready to go!
But first before that happens Rylee TURNS TWO! AHHH! I still cant believe my baby is 2 already. We are having her party on the 16th in hopes that daddy will be home. He is going to be so upset if he misses another birthday party for the girls. He already missed Madisons 3rd party! But at least he was here on her actual birthday! Everything will work out I am sure! Will post pictures as soon as I get them!
