Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful family trip to Florida to celebrate Christmas with Bob and Paula. The kids sang "Oh Christmas Tree" I published it on my Windows live page. I'm going to post a link to it here. I hope it works.

Summer's almost over. Wow, that went so fast. Getting ready to go back to school already. We almost have all of our school supplies, but we don't start until Sept. 7, so we still have time to get the last items on the list. We like small town living so far, but we'll have to see what the winter has in store for us.

I am now an Independant Sales Representative for AVON. I love their products. And so much has changed now. They now have kids gift items, clothing, accessories, hair care products, mineral make-up, MARK products, Curves products and so much more. I'm looking forward to learning more and having a booth at fairs or other events. I'm also planning on doing some AVON Fund-Raisers. A Fund-Raiser can earn 30-40% for an organization, kids sports team, school, etc...

My personal webpage for avon is http://www.youravon.com/danalarkin. And my email address is avonladydana@ymail.com.

Alli's getting so big. She sits with no problem. She crawls all over the place in super fast speed and she climbes on everything! She pulls herself up to the couches and everything else. She'll be walking in no time.

Evan just had surgery on his left ear again in January. Surgery went well. It is healing nicely. I think everything is healing correctly this time. The gauze was stitched in this time so that it wouldn't fall out like it did last time. The dr took it out last week and we go in again next week for him to see how it is healing.

Jordan's latest thing is Football cards. He has a whole binder full of them and has been trading them with his friends.

Last weekend, Emma was here and the girls got to go to Chucky Cheese for my friends birthday party. We had fun. Emmma played games and got some prizes, I didn't see them all, but she did get a handful of frogs. And Alli got to go on some of the car rides. Of course, Emma and I had to support her while she sat on the ride, but she seemed to enjoy it after she got over the initial confused look.

We have conferences coming up this week. School seems to be going well so far, but we'll see what the teachers have to say about it.

Busy months

I know it's been a super long time again. November and December have been crazy months...

There has been so many events. I don't know where to begin. We have been BUSY... between Evan's ear surgery, Thanksgiving, Alli having Chicken Pox, Wedding planning, Wedding Rehearsal, Wedding Ceremony,and Wedding Reception.

We survived traveling with a 7 1/2 month old to Minneapolis and then on a plane to Florida with a small stop in Chicago. She did surprisingly well on the flight. The drive to Minneapolis was a little rushed and we had to leave earlier than anticipated because there was a storm and we didn't want to get stuck in the storm in the dark. The traffic to Bloomington at 2 PM was horrible. But we made it and we spent a couple of hours at the Mall of America while we were waiting for our hotel room to be ready for check-in. Her first trip to the Mall, and we saw the Barbie Exhibit and ate at Tucci Binucchi. Then we relaxed a little in the hot tub before bed (taking turns holding the baby outside of the hot water, of course).

We are now in Florida and enjoying spending time with Bob and Paula. They are so warm and welcoming! Their house is so festive and warm and comfortable... even though they've only been here for 7 weeks so far. How amazing is that? Alli is doing so good. She adjusts so well. I'm so proud of my sweet little girl.

I talked to the boys today and they couldn't wait to get off the phone... lol. They didn't have much to say, I had to ask lots of questions and they just said Yes, No, or Good to everything. Silly boys. They have been staying with Andrea after school and Grandma Kay at night (at our place). They were on their way to Alexandria to go to Minneapolis to spend the weekend with their dad.

We have to get ready for the cruise tomorrow... we leave out of Tampa on Sunday. So excited. And so READY for our Honeymoon cruise. It's been a bit crazy these last few months, but now it's time to relax a bit and enjoy ourselves before we have to get back to our REAL lives. I'll try to post pictures and info when we get back from the cruise. Have a good week everyone!
