Halloween and Thanksgiving 2017

So growing a third human while chasing two toddlers has exponentially increased my symptoms of Mommy brain….I can only imagine once Sophie is here! Which is coming soon! I woke up one morning and realized I was 6 months pregnant…when did that happen?!?

Also Halloween and Thanksgiving have already happened and now Christmas is around the corner….seriously, did someone give the Earth an extra spin or two??

On Halloween it was pouring rain, but we made the best of it! Bailey was a little shark, Claire was a little pumpkin, and we went trick or treating in Stacey’s neighborhood with Ally and the boys ๐Ÿ™‚ Claire preferred to jump in the puddles in the gutters…but Bailey was finally at the age where she looooved trick or treating. It was so fun. Rain and all ๐Ÿ™‚

The Astros won the World Series! I swear the celebration in Houston lasted a week! I loved seeing everyone wearing their Astros gear and being kind and friendly one with another. It was a moment to remember ๐Ÿ™‚ Houston really needed the win after Hurricane Harvey.

For Thanksgiving Adam and I decided to make a quick trip to Florida to see my family, and my brother AJ! He is doing the last leg of his tech school at Eglin AFB near my grandparents. It was so good seeing him. He is doing so well and I am so proud of him ๐Ÿ™‚ ย It was a whirlwind of a few days full of seeing so much family and I am so grateful we were able to go ๐Ÿ™‚ Traveling back the Sunday after Thanksgiving was crazy though! An 8 hour trip took about 13 hours. The girls were a champ! I think I was more annoyed about it than they were! Haha.

Christmas is coming fast! We put our tree up before Thanksgiving and Bailey has been so excited everyday for Christmas to come. Although she keeps telling me that it has to snow for Santa to come….I have to remind her that Texas is a bit too warm for that, but Santa will still come visit us ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although today it ended up being a Christmas miracle!ย Houston had a snow day! The girls woke up to a couple inches of snow on the ground and they were in heaven! It was nice that they wake up so early, because they had the fresh blanket of snow all to themselves. So I guess I had to eat my own words haha.

This last weekend we went to the Polar Express in Palestine Texas and it was a blast!!!!! Bailey was losing her mind over seeing and meeting Santa and getting a little bell. She loves the movie, and really took her ticket seriously. She kept holding it firm in both hands and repeatedly saying she cant lose it haha. Claire was along for the ride and enjoyed trying to hang out the window…we had to have an iron grip on that free spirited child haha.
Poor Claire has been so cranky the last couple weeks from teething and what not. Im crossing fingers she is finally getting back to her happy little self!

Bailey started preschool in November and she looooooves it! She is thriving and learning so much ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so proud of her ๐Ÿ™‚

All in all things are going well and we are continuing to enjoy life as a family and try and keep up with all the changes in our future ๐Ÿ™‚

These are our Bits O’ Bertoch.
