November in a nutshell

I realized this morning that it's been almost a month since my last post. I knew it had been a while, but I didn't know it was that long. The sad part is I've been spending all my free time on ebay again, I'm so dissapointed with myself! My intentions have been to buy Christmas gifts, but after weeks of effort I decided it's impossible to by a new designer wallet for $1.50. I would even go as high as spending 10$ depending on what the shipping would cost, but the bid never fails to soar up to 90$ at the last minute and yet I always get my hopes up. Stupid waste of time..
I did manage to buy a Chi for myself at 30$ which Kirk is going to wrap and give to me at Christmas, so far I'm making his shopping really easy for him.
The boys are playing well so far, so I'm going to continue.
Almost a month ago Tommy turned 1 yrs old. I did write a post about it but I didn't really like how I wrote it so I just saved it. If I had better pictures I would have been more inclined to show them, but Kirk was in charge of taking them, so this is all we have. I'm still a little bitter.

This is us getting ready to open the first gift. But neither of us were looking.

I don't know what to say about this one.

At least that's a nice one of the two of them.

This is the Boston Cream Pie I spent hours on. It wasn't as good as I expected.

It took him a while to get into it.

Other than that, I havent been up to much. Tommy has been doing really well, we saw the therapist last Thursday and she was really impressed with everything he's doing and so am I! Now if I could just get him to take a bottle!
His first tooth is comming in now and it's very exciting, but I think it's crooked! I really hope when the other teeth come in they straighten it out and I really hope they all aren't crooked!

This is Tommy unwillingly showing you his new tooth. That looks really mean of me! I gave him a hug after and he felt better.
The other exciting news is Talons recent decision to start using the potty. Now I dont want to jinx anything by getting too excited but this is basically how I feel about not having to clean his poopy bum anymore.

That about says it!
Now all I have to do is figure out what to get basically everyone for Christmas, get a food storage orgainized, get Talon to brush his teeth without having to sit on him, plan cheep and healthy meals for my family, remember to read my scriptures everyday, keep the house clean and laundry under control, help my children stay busy and happy without having the TV on all day and I'll be almost stress free!
