Photos are uploaded and I’m working on editing whenever I have time; yesterday was spent digging out from under the mountain of laundry and this week is dedicated to preparing for Christmas. I hope to have another entry complete with photos ready to go soon… so be ready for the tale of our trip to Jamaica aka Paradise, aka the week I got hooked on the Bloody Mary, aka look out for the crazy Rastafarian mosquitos from Hell. It was epic!

I am a final exam away from completing a semester. 100 multiple choice questions. Only 55 of which I need to get write to still get an A in the class.
My Christmas cards are addressed and ready to send off tomorrow after I get my holiday stamps. Just a few more days of rushing around and then I get to relax for a week. I can not wait.
Is it Saturday yet?

Aside from the holiday loveliness that happened in our house this weekend, Kayla decided to treat me by suddenly deciding that she wants to go to the potty at home. Saturday she went twice, and Sunday she managed to keep her diaper dry until all but nap time! She still needs to be reminded sometimes, but more and more she looks at me and says “I want to pee pee on the potty mommy!”
This morning she sat on the potty before we left for the day and as she sat there and tried, she looked up at me and said “are you going to be proud of me mommy?” I had to hold back the tears. As little as 3 or 4 days ago, she would ask “can I have a gummy bear?” Knowing that my pride and acknowledgement is her primary motivator is a really awesome thing.
Even though she didn’t go for me this morning, she still got lots of hugs, kisses and “I’m proud of you’s.”

It's finally starting to feel like the Holidays around here. Yesterday we went up to Elizabeth Farms to pick out our Christmas tree. Kayla helped decorate this year, putting her first ornament on the tree:
