I'm writing to tell you that not much is going on over here. I see it's been over a week since I've posted...
Sarah is back to being her old self again. Pulling herself up to get into some kind of trouble is her main thing these days. Poor Gabe, when he's playing with his Wii, she just loves to just stand there and play with the remote wire and he's constantly moving to get away from her, so he can play in peace. Of course, she follows him step for step. And it's kinda depressing to be shopping in the toddler section for 12 month sizes; no more shopping in the baby section.
Oh, and on this past Sunday, we were waiting for a table at a restaurant in Dallas. I hear this noise like some poor animal is killing it's squeaky toy. Gabe tugs on my arm and tells me to look at this little toddler who is wearing these Mary Jane shoes that squeak with every step she takes. Oh, I have to have a pair for Sarah!!! Phil's sister's friend, Toni, said that one brand of this shoe is called Wee Squeaks (some brands can be up to $80), so she'll keep an eye on them for me (she owns a second-hand store for children). But by checking out the Wee Squeaks site, I think I might be able to shell out a few bucks for them. It's a must have, ya'll! And I've never been "cheap" on good quality shoes... wink, wink.
Gabe has been doing so good in school. It amazes me on how much he can read these days and I have to remind myself not to do something stupid like leaving Christmas lists lying around. So long are the days when you spell things that you don't want him to hear! He's also matured quite a bit in the past few months. If it's "babyish", don't bother buying it; that goes for clothes, toys, etc.
I've started on the dreaded Christmas shopping. Not actually purchasing just yet, but plan to start ordering in the next few days. If I can, I'll do most of my shopping via the internet so I can have it shipped to Louisiana; because we're spending Christmas there. I hate to mention it to jinx us, but it looks like Phillip will be able to spend the Christmas holiday with us! We are very excited that Gabe will be out of school while Daddy is home.
That's all for now folks. I hope everyone is doing well.
