It has been a while since I have posted anything and LOTS has happened. We had another Christmas go by and another year. I still cant believe its already 2009. 2008 was great! There were some downs but most of all it was the most fun yet! We had a lot happen in '08! Here is just what I can think of!!!
Colin graduated from LSU in Petroleum Engineering in just 4 short years! (Takes most 5 plus years)
I made a lot of life long friends!
We all moved to Lafayette
We got Married
Went to Disney World
Madison started school
Rylee fell off her bed and lost her tooth! HA!
Colin started his job at Pathfinder! (Well its now Smith)
My car completly died! (well it just to happen to be the air conditioner seized up and that made it not be able to start but it still left me and the girls stranded at the mall!)
and I know there is just so much more but of course my mommy brain cant think of them! HA!
We have had a lot of downs also but of course I dnot like to dwell on the not so great so I will stick with all the fun things we have started!!
Christmas was GREAT this year. I think it was the best one yet since Madison is really starting to get it now! The girls got their very own car this year. Its a purple corvette! And boy do they love it! They of course got tons more but if you ask them what they got they of course only say Princess Scooters (from my parents), a Purple Car, and a HUGE bike that goes on the TV (Its a smart Cycle from Colins parents) We had a busy Christmas. We had to drive back and forth from Lafayette to Baton Rouge, Denham and Gonzales for a week. Yep that is right. Everyday for a week we were back and forth. We were exhausted to say the least! thank goodness my dad let us use his car since my car was dead. I dont think we would have been able to manage with just Colins truck!
For New Years Eve we actually went somewhere and let the girls stay up until Midnight. It helped that I pushed their nap back until like 4!! HA! But of course they were all up bright and early on New Years day! We went pop fireworks at one of Colins friends house from work! We had a blast. EVEN ALEXA! I met lots of new people and had a great time! Made me like Lafayette a little more.
But now it is time for 2009. A new Year and a new beginning. We also have another big year ahead of us! We get to get our VERY FIRST HOUSE! WAHOO!!!!! Trust me I CAN NOT WAIT! HA! Being in a 2 bedroom apartment with 1 bathroom has been hectic to say the least! I am greatful because we are on our own but oh so ready to get a house with some room. Colin and I have still been debating whether or not we want to live in Baton Rouge. To tell you the truth I love love love Lafayette. Its so different. Not so busy and more laid back! But of course my family and all our friends are in Baton Rouge. So what to do? I guess we will know for sure soon!
Colin is about to leave again for another job. He will be in Arkansas again. Which he is pretty happy about. I think he likes the rig out there. But this just means he will be gone for about 2 months give or take a week. THAT IS A REALLY LONG TIME! But we are getting used to it more and more now! So it wont be so bad! At least it helps up with a down payment on a house and maybe a new SUV for me (Can we say SURBURBAN!!! HA! But I am sure it will be a while before we get it :(....oh well)
Well, this is enough for now, I will post some pictures later. Too tired right now! HA!
