Caterpillar, caterpillar…

I really want to start blogging again daily, but things have felt so crazy lately. By the end of the day I am ready to jump off a cliff or go straight to bed. We have been trying to potty train Mary (unsuccessfully), and Lydia has been excessively rude and demanding. I’m pumping and nursing around the clock, and Ammon goes through an entire PACK of diapers every three days. For no good reason I feel guilty for all of the take-out we have been eating and so I’ve been trying to cook actual meals AND bake Christmas cookies with the girls. On top of it all, my Black Friday furniture is coming in every day, and so Abe and I are trying to madly fit in house projects on top of it all. I am slightly stressed out and have sworn off future offspring. Three is more than enough.

Today felt nice though. We had an incredible stake conference, and then after my nap we all watched Charlie Brown’s Christmas as a family. It was fun to be all snuggled up together.

I have pictures dating back to nine days ago, so in chronological order, here they are:

Last Friday after dropping Vince off at the airport we all went out to eat with Auntie Geri, Karin, Jay, Abe's brothers and Olivia.

Ammon was imitating Abe...or visa versa. The cute video is here.

We baked Christmas cookies. I got it done with the girls just a couple days after Thanksgiving in case things are too crazy to repeat this feat again.

Baking was a three day process. We had to make dough (day one), cut out and bake (day two), and decorate (day three). This is day three.

Also, Abe took these two cute videos of the girls today. They are singing “Caterpillar, caterpillar, tickle tickle on my arm…” This is one of my all-time favorite videos of the girls.
