Well, I realize I haven't posted in a while, but it isn't for a lack of post-worthy events. I have just been too busy to sit lately. Here are just a few random happenings around the Manuel House.
First, Bryan got glasses! Yes, you are seeing correctly, he is reading! He was trying to get back into reading, but he was having headaches all the time. So he went to the doctor, and boom, glasses.
Then, I got a curious email about my sears.com order being ready for pick-up. I asked Bryan if he had ordered anything, but he hadn't. We were stumped. I dug a little deeper to find that my wonderful mother bought us a Dyson for the new house and had it sent to the Sears here in Longview! I was so excited! As you can see, so was Gannon.
Here, Bryan and the kids are starting our very first fire in our new house. The kids were really excited about it. Gannon kept saying that we were going to use it to cook, so Austyn went to the fridge and pulled out the hot dogs!
Here is a picture of Austyn showing off her piggy bank display. She is so proud off all her piggies. Every time we enter or exit her room, she kisses them all and tells them she loves them. My sweet little heart!
We decided that, in spite of the cold, we were going to have ice cream for dessert. The kids each got to pick their own toppings, and they were very proud. They looked mostly the same, marshmallows, sprinkles, but Gannon chose strawberry syrup while Austyn chose Chocolate. Gannon kept trying to correct her because she was calling her sprinkles "sprink-a-lers".
Austyn finally had her first ear infection, and it was a doozie. She was so miserable, and Mommy was so sad. The three of us stayed home and laid around by the fire all day.
Later that day, Austyn wanted to play outside. As usual, she had stripped down to only a diaper, and it was freezing outside. When we told her this, she ran to her room (we thought she was going to play), and returned with her hat. "Now I ready play outside!!" she cheered. Haha, not quite, Austyn-Baby, sorry!
So that's what we have been up to lately. Thanks for stopping by!
