December Update

It's been a busy holiday month with lots of parties and lots of eating!  We've stayed busy getting Christmas orders steadily out the door, with the very very very (and I mean it this time) last one going out today!
Brynlie has been an absolute trooper staying home and entertaining herself for a lot of the day while I'm working.  I'm definitely looking forward to some time off this week to just hang out and play with my little angel. 
Unfortunately the week did not start off so great.  Brynlie has the worst ear infection, with a ruptured drum, I've ever seen and I have a cold.  She started complaining Sunday night and I didn't think so much of it until I hear her put her finger in her sounded like she put her finger in a bucket of slim.  EWWWWW!!  I took a look at it besides it being fire engine red she had a ton of drainage.  Within just an hour she was running a fever and her whole face was red.  We went to see the doctor this morning and even after cleaning out her ear she said it was still so full of puss and mucus she couldn't see anything.  Antibiotics and Ibuprofen for 5 days and hopefully we'll be on the mend. 

She picks up more and more and more with each day.  Here are the latest funnies:

She tells me, with arms crossed "I not happy to you!"  meaning....I'm not happy with you.
She tells me, "you the best in the hole wurld mommy"  I've got to get that on video!! 
"Canny Corn" = Candy Canes
There would be a lot more if my memory were better......

I'm really looking forward to Santa visiting this year, he's bringing some awesome presents!  Sometimes she likes him and sometimes she doesn't, sometimes she gets him confused with clowns!  LOL
Gigi brought her Elf on the Shelf this year, but she doesn't quite get the concept just yet.  We've been talking about being naughty or nice this year, and sometimes she just can't hold it together anymore, she folds and yells "I'm just going to be naughty, I want to be naughty!"  And boy has she shown me what naughty is lately!  I've been the mother that is holding her child up off the ground by one arm (yes, in a public place) trying to plea with her to walk while my other hand is full of bags, purse, keys, etc....., the mom that is prying tiny little fingers off something (particularly a pillow pet) in the check-out line while she's screaming, and the one who hands a toy to the lady in the check-out line (because I let the 3 year old walk around the store with it just to be able to get through the store) explaining in the sweetest Mommy voice that I can muster that we will be asking Santa for this super fabulous doll instead of buying today all while my child is convulsing with a look-a-like mini seizure in the basket! 

Ending on a "nice" note, she is still super sweet the majority of the time.  Wanting to snuggle on the couch, giving lots of kisses, always telling me she loves me and loves to help me do just about anything around the house especially cooking.  I'm not sure how this happened, but she has me convinced she has to sleep with Mommy in Mommy's bed to be "comfurtbaly"  
She's asked me several times this month if she could pleeeeease have a baby brother!  LOL!  I told her that she would need to talk to the big man upstairs about that request!  She has now decided that she is going to ask Jesus for a baby brother and a puppy for Christmas. 
I've gone back and forth several times about getting us a dog and still have not made a decision.  I thought now that I'm home I would for sure be able to get one, but we still stay so busy that I'm still not sure.
Here's some pictures from this month
