Agent E: days 20-21

Yesterday we found Agent E rifling through our junk drawer in the kitchen and this morning we found him in the trash from our new humidifier. That silly elf! And only a few more days until Christmas...not much time for him to get into much more trouble!

Good mom/Bad mom

By 10 am I had dragged Leo to not one but two doctor appointments for Jacoby. On his first day of Christmas break. So I did what any really awesome/terrible mother (you decide) would do. We drove through Braums for some ice cream! Yes sir I realize it is only 10:15...but are you serving ice cream?!

Agent E: December 18

Agent E found Leo's big present and perched himself up there. No pic. Sorry!

RTT: Christmas, surgery and other random things

Random thoughts for a random Tuesday.  Yep that about sums up my life right now…pretty darn random!  Let’s go!


·         Friday Jacoby had his second surgery in what we hope will cure his ongoing ear infections.  He had the original tubes that were put in in June replaced and had his adenoids taken out.  Needless to say the past four days were not fun.  He is still really clingy and cries a lot.  He also isn’t sleeping very well.  And has more snot than I’ve ever seen (or so it feels like) coming out of his nose and mouth.  So gross.  But he went back to daycare today.  The doctor said he could have gone back yesterday but as a mommy I didn’t feel like he should.  So I kept him home one extra day and relished in his sweet skin and as many hugs and kisses as I could give.  Poor little guy.

·         When thinking about how much time I spent this weekend taking care of my little guy I realized how much I did not take care of myself.  In the 4 days I was off work I showered twice.  I at least brushed my teeth every day.  Between keeping a house running and keeping a baby alive while not feeling well AND dealing with a  rowdy 5 year old I had no time to think of my hygiene.  It’s a little ridiculous.  I admire all those stay at home moms who can get themselves ready every day.  That would be the last thing I would feel needed to get done.  I guess it’s good I’m forced to go to work so I don’t start to smell!

·         On a much happier note my Redskins are at the top of their division for now with only 2 games left in the season.  If they win out they will be going to the playoffs for the first time in 4 or 5 years.  So excited!

·         Only 1 week until Christmas! Woo hoo!  All our presents are bought and wrapped.  I am so ready for the Christmas festivities to begin.  Our first engagement is Saturday with my in-laws.  Then I have to work on Christmas Eve until 3 (barf) but after that I will take the boys to church and then we will spend Christmas eve and Christmas day together.  I can’t wait.

·         We did not put up our Christmas tree this year.  We decided little fingers would get things that he didn’t need to get.  While we explained this to Leo he seemed to care for about one second then went on his merry way.  Well this did not sit well with my niece (4 years old) apparently.  She came to visit Jacoby with my dad on Saturday and noticed we didn’t have a tree.  She didn’t say anything to me, but the next day when her and her dad were out shopping for Operation Holiday stuff for his work he was explaining why they were there and how some people can’t afford Christmas so that’s what they were helping with.  She then proceeded to tell him that they needed to buy us a tree because we couldn’t afford one.  He tried to explain to her that we could and that there was probably a good reason we didn’t have it up she just wouldn’t let it go.  Finally he just told her that that wasn’t what they were there for and to move along.  The next day at school her class made ornaments and she made a Christmas tree and wanted to give it to us so we could put it up on the wall over our presents so we would have a tree.  I thought that was the sweetest thing.  All I did was tell her our tree was in the garage and she thought that was the funniest thing ever. 


Enough random from me.  Go visit Stacy and throw down your own random!

Agent E: day 17

We found Agent E just hanging around on our Christmas card garland.

Ornament Exchange

I was super stoked to participate in Megan and Julie's ornament swap again this year.  Last year I had so much fun and got a super cute ornament to boot!  So when the post was made I was in.  I was paired up with Linnea and it was fun getting to know her through her blog.  She sent me these really awesome ornament balls.  And although we opted not to put up a Christmas tree this year with a wily, little one year old on the loose I can't wait to hang them on our tree with care next year!  Thanks Linnea!

Agent E: days 13-15

I've been slacking on the pictures/updates for Agent E. but in the past three days he has been in the kitchen guarding the sugar bowl, hanging from the cabinet and drinking from Leo's water bottle. That silly elf really gets around!

Agent E: December 12

Agent E knew that since the weather got cold we wouldn't be turning on the fan so he chose to sit on it like it was a bull. Ride'em cowelf!

Agent E: December 11

The silly elf got out one of Leo's trucks and was riding around his room. Silly, silly elf.

Agent E: Day 9

Today Agent E was found guarding our Christmas presents. Our tree is not going up this year for fear of grimy little fingers pulling everything off of it so our presents our tucked away in a corner!

Agent E: Day 8

Agent E continues to surprise us in where he's going to turn up. Today we found him hiding in the candy jar. Or stuck. Either way he was all in.

Agent E: December 7

Agent E must be feeling better because he got Leo's Star Wars Boba Fett gun and was having target practice. He must like Star Wars as much as Leo!

Agent E: day 6

Poor Agent E caught the sniffles and he's laid up with some cough drops and Kleenex. I think the funniest part about this is that when Leo saw him he was like, 'he's definitely sick because his cheeks are all red.' Silly boy! Hope Agent E gets to feeling better so he can get back to his shenanigans.

Agent E: Day 3

We awoke to find Agent E in a bath with marshmallow bubbles. They are not shown here because we didn't want any creepy-crawlies to find their way in enticed by a free meal but he had a nice bath!

Agent E: December 2

Oh that silly elf was tied up in Leo's curtains today.

Dear Santa

Gretchen's spin assignment this week is what's on our Christmas list.  Here is a sampling of what I would like for Christmas.  Most is practical, while there are a few indulgences on it as well!

No, not the body...wait yes the body and the kettle bell!

An RGIII jersey. 

A hand mixer.  Mine was broken in the infamous hand mixing incident of 2012

A new scale

Ok, this wasn't really on my list but I would love some giant earrings!

Ok, not a clock...just more time!

Agent E: December 1

Leo thought it was so funny that Agent E was coloring. There was a picture of a frog and a present on the page and Leo actually looks like a frog and a present on there!

I don't really know why he thought it wouldn't but it was so funny.
