Owen's big boy bed!

Warning: If you have a weak stomach, I would recommend you not look at the last picture in this post. Well, we decided to convert Owen's crib into a full sized bed. We thought that it would help him sleep better. Joke was on us. He still gets up at night and has a terrible time falling asleep. The last two night we have gone for a drive to put him to sleep.

So, here is the scoop on what happened to my head. Let's just say this topped off a horrible week at work and a really rough day. I needed a good knock in the head to make me focus. Jeff had taken out Owen's bed rails and put them on the living room floor. He went with Aaron to our store to get the mattress that we ordered for Owen. I was in the living room with the kids and the kids kept playing with the rails, walking on them and making mommy worried that they were going to hurt themselves. I got the kids off of them and reached down to pick one up and lean it against the wall. While bending down to get the second rail, the other one against the wall came down on my head and hit me extremely hard. I wasn't sure what had happened to me for a minute. I went and laid on the couch and reached up to feel my head and my hand was drenched with blood. I immediately called Jeff and luckily he was almost home. It looked a ton worse than it actually was. Head injuries always bleed bad.

Christmas 2009

We had a really fun Christmas this year. Owen and Kaebrie were really fun! They are still too little to grasp the whole idea of Christmas. We talked about baby Jesus and the nativity. Santa was understood for sure. We took Owen to the mall to sit on his lap. He looked at him with a weird glare like "Who are you"??? Santa gave him a coloring book which made his day. After that, he loved Santa...

We will more than likely NEVER leave for a vacation in December again. Christmas came and went way too fast. I didn't even get to do my Christmas baking and I feel like our last minute shopping was indeed too last minute. Not to mention, we shopped at Cuddle Haven on Christmas Eve for our kids. This won't happen again.

When we got home from our cruise, we had some major issues at work. It was a blessing that our phones didn't work because it would've ruined my whole vacation hearing about all the issues. Although, I went crazy not being able to talk to my kids. I have never missed anyone so much in my life.

Back to Christmas, we woke up on Christmas morning and hosted breakfast for Camille, Aaron and Sheena, Grandma and Grandpa Aamodt and Jim and Lori. Then for lunch we had Grandpa Rex come over. Then off to my family party at my parents home. Christmas was really fun and I am so blessed to have the example of Christ in my life.
