So much fun, but...

We are so glad that it is over! Christmas, that is. We had a party every night for a week (that includes Trav's surprise B-day party) and we are partied out! I am definitely ready for life to get back to normal. Skylar was pretty naughty most of the time for the whole week. She doesn't do well when she has to get to bed late and not get her naps. At least that is what I am blaming it on. (Does anyone know the number for SuperNanny? We might need her.) At first she really liked opening presents and tearing the paper. After 2-3 parties and lots of presents, she was over it. We pretty much had to beg her on Xmas morning to open her presents. Hopefully she will "get it" a little more next year.
Here are some fun pics of our Christmas.

Sailyr's favorite part: PAPER

After she ate a roll of wrapping paper, Sailyr got a full jar of Chicken Noodle Dinner and loved it up to her eyebrows!

Happ-Doo Dear Dad! Happ-Doo, Happ-Doo! This is Skylar's version of "Happy Birthday". So today we are singing it to....Travis! He is turning the big 3-0 today! Pretty crazy that both of us are going into another decade in our lives!

You know when you are 19 or 20, you think, "by the time I'm thirty I will have (blank) and I will have done (blank) and I will definitely be done doing (blank). And then when you hit thirty you think, "I haven't done or accomplished any of that! Aaah! Where has my life gone?"

And then you start thinking about what you HAVE accomplished and what your life IS instead of what you thought you wanted it to be and you realize that you wouldn't want it any other way!

Happy Birthday (happ-doo) to my great huband! You are an amazing Dad to our girls and we love you so much!

Husband Tag!

1. What is your husband's name?
Travis Wade Hess

2. How long have you been married?
5 1/2 years

3. How long did you date?
About 8 years with a couple breaks in between. I didn't even have a driver's license when we started dating! We were way too young!

He'll be the big 3-0 on Dec 22!

7. Who pays the bills?
He pays the mortgage and I pay everything else!

8. Who does the laundry?
Definitely me.

9. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
He does. My side is closest to the door, easier to get up with babies at night.

10. Who mows the lawn?
Trav does when we have a lawn to mow. He really takes pride in having a nice yard! I am usually in charge of the flower beds though!

11. Who cooks dinner?
I do. We kind of eat out a lot on nights when we get home late. Take out is a great invention!

12. Who is the first to admit when they're wrong?

13. Who kissed who first?
I honestly can't really remember. That is so bad! I am pretty sure that he kissed me! I think!

It depends what the issue is but I think we are equal.

Love you, Trav!

I tag Stephanie, Tara and Julie!
