Where to start? We have been oh so busy so here are some bullets:)

**Contract pending on my condo!!! Home inspection was today and went well. Just a few minor things to take care of. Still need an appraisal and the buyer has to have loan approval so tentative closing date is January 26Th. FINGERS CROSSED!

**My girl has been busy potty training. Her teacher at Day Care promised her a fish. It's been frustrating and stressful for the last few weeks while she struggled and went through many outfits. Last night some thing clicked! She pooped in the potty twice! (TMI?) Dry all day today and when I picked her up she was in underpants and super proud. She did so well that her teacher went and bought her a fish during nap time :) I am so proud of her :)

**Is Christmas really here next week???? I am done shopping for her. Her big gift will be the F P Loving Family fully furnished doll house. She is going to love it :) I got her way too many other things as well. I can't help it. She is so fun to buy for :)

***Auntie Laurie is doing great! Completely back to normal. We are grateful!

***Found out recently that I will be getting a raise next month. It's not much but hey everything helps. We also got a small unexpected wind share bonus this month.

***I am so glad I don't have to worry about working on Christmas anymore. Also glad Christmas falls on a Friday this year. YAY! A 3 day weekend.

***I am starting to look at houses:)

***Our weather has been so wishy Washy! Hot one day, freezing the next. It has rained practically every other day :(

***Wow coming up on our 2 year forever family day for Abby and I. I can't believe it has only been 2 years. Feels like forever. She is SO MY DAUGHTER in so many ways. I can't imagine life without her.

***I haven't been posting but I have been taking pictures. Will post a major catch up in pictures soon:)

***Is Christmas really here next week????

Merry Christmas!

Everything is coming up roses! Enjoy the blessings at Christmas. On a practical note, all the money you will soon save on diapers can more than cover some of the fun at Christmas!!!

Sweet sweet sweet. Hope the closing goes well and you find a great new house!

I SO understand the going overboard on Christmas presents. Wait until Abby is 4...everything in the universe is fun to buy for a 4 year old!

Wow you sound busy. Way to go Abby on the potty training! Good luck on closing the sale and house hunting. What a nice way to start the year. Happy Christmas to you both.

Abby is Christmas and birthdays and holidays all rolled into one. This Christmas will be special because she has no idea what is coming. She's already given you a great present with her potty training. hugs for you both.

So exciting! Fingers and toes crossed that you are moved (painlessly) in no time. A big relief. Please send my best to Laurie. Very, very good news that she's recovered! Sounds like Abba is doing very well with the potty training after all- maybe you both can start training Ellie? Meet up soon. Take care of you.
