Happy Veteran's Day!

I love paid days off. You just can't beat them. And nothing is better than having a day AND getting to spend it with two great kiddos. I am beyond excited. Normally, I look forward to sleeping in. Rather than look forward to more sleep today though, I looked forward to getting up and meeting their mother to get them. Plus I would much rather have them home with me than at daycare, especially since Swae hasn't been feeling well. It works out for all.

Today is going be full of getting everything ready for the rest of the week, grocery shopping, taking Daddy lunch, naps, and who knows what else. Eli was saying last night one of our friends might be coming over tonight for dinner. I am just happy to be off of work and getting things done, but mostly being with the little ones. And they are in some great moods today.

I am also looking forward to them staying the night tonight. Today starts our new schedule and they will be staying with us the next two nights. I am stoked. I can't wait. I have been looking forward to this since Friday. From what the kids have been saying, they are beyond excited as well. I will be sure to go to bed around the same time that I put them down tonight so that I am sure that I have no problem getting up in the morning. I am going to get up extra early to make sure that I have me ready before waking up the little ones. It's going to be awesome!

I hope everyone has a fabulous day!

I loved mine too! :) One of the benefits of working for the state. :)

I went to bed the other night right after putting Bay to bed. It's usually 7:15-7:30 for her, but that night she went to bed around 8:30. She was in a playful mood because she took a late nap. Right after we put her down, we went to bed at 8:30!!!! Unheard of! It. Was. Awesome. Gob, I sound like such a grandma!!
