Things that make me happy

1. The boys have slept 10+ hours the last week...YAY!!!!! I never thought it would happen!

2. It's 57 degrees in Houston! I want to light my fireplace and make pot roast. I am going to sit on a rain soaked chair in the backyard when I finish this and enjoy the cold weather!

3. It's holiday time and I have kids!! I love the holidays and every year I have tried to create memories for my nieces and nephews, now I get to start doing that for my own kids! I will carry on traditions and create new ones. I would love to hear other blogger's holiday traditions.

4. On that note...we are taking the boys to the pumpkin patch tomorrow. They will have no memory of it but I will and there will be 47 pictures for them to look at when they are older!

5. There are some new shows that are actually good this seasons. I am really enjoying The Middle and Modern Family.

6. Speaking of tv...I am so happy that Roseanne is back on Nick at Nite...granted it's on at 2 am but I still find myself awake at that time.

7. I decided to be a stay at home mom....while this makes me happy, it also scares the crap out of me.

8. Alabama football!!! We are ranked #3 just after husbands favorite team. We are hoping they both go to the championship game...the boys will surely be clad in Bama outfits!

9. We left the boys for the night at grandma and grandpa's last weekend so we could go enjoy some dinner and drinks with friends. I was so nervous and sad but really needed to go out and unwind. We had a great time and jumped that hurdle.

10. My first children. My cats don't really have an opinion on the boys but my dogs are wonderful with them. I feel guilty alot because they don't get all of our attention, they have to share it now. But, they are getting more used to the new family dynamic and we shower them with love everyday.

First of all, those boys are gorgeous!!! Secondly, while I'm so glad you're seeing the happy in life again, I'm warning you now that either you or your hubby will be sadly disappointed come the BCS game... GO GATORS!!! :) Just sayin'.

So glad they are sleeping!!! That was so hard for me in the beginning. We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday - so much fun (for us). I am really into making holiday traditions, too. So far, we don't really have any, but we'll be starting some this year for sure. :-) Hope you are enjoying being at home with the boys.

I wish I could stay home...sigh.

Our family tradition? We go to a pumpkin patch and have a tailgate party with all our friends. Its always been their kids, but now we have one of our own! Yay! Hot toddies and breakfast treats. Fun times.

What cutie pies!!! You have adorable babies. I'm stopping by from Jill's blog. I met Jill blogging a year ago right before we relocated from Austin to Houston. She's such a big sweetie and she is always blogging about her fabulous friend so I thought I would stop by and say hello. Isn't this weather fantastic! I wish it was like this year round in Houston.

:) Cute post! How old are your adorable little babes?

Being home is a wonderful thing - hard as hell some days but undeniably the best once-in-a-lifetime days you will ever have.

I love The Middle and Modern Family. ((Shhh, Cougar Town, too.))

54 and cold in Texas ... oh goodness, that's a heat wave here in Rhode Island! :) 54 is still tee shirt weather.
