And the goodies just keep coming.....

For the record we have had two more neighbors stop by to welcome us to the neighborhood and of course they all brought cookies.....I just love it....Free goodies and great neighbors not too much better then that...and man can they all bake!!!! Shawn and I have been pondering if we had bought a house in Seattle or somewhere in the Northwest if people would be this hospitable....I suppose it is possible......I am now coming up with a way to thank all of them...I will let you know what I come up with when I figure it out.....

Last night Uncle Joel watched the twins while Shawn, Lila and I ran out for some last minute Christmas Shopping.....I tell you Christmas time is not exactly the best time to move, trying to unpack while still doing all the Christmas stuff.......I wonder if I will get my 'Holiday' cards out....YES I have ordered them and NO, I have not sent them out yet....so you all can expect those after Christmas.....Other then getting ready for Christmas I haven't been up to too much.....Got all the grocery shopping done today.....feels good to have it all done....we have decided since we live in Texas now we have to have Brisket on Christmas.....although we are not going to BBQ it this year.....but it should still be good....so look for posts on the Breezy Cook after the holidays.....

I am super tired right now......and probably should go to bed......Lila has been off and on with her sleeping so I feel like I am not getting much sleep....most of the week she has been waking 2-3 times a night, needing some hand holding or back rubbing to fall back asleep, I swear each time it takes a good 15min....by 4.30-5.00am when she wakes up again I have lost my patience so I have been grabbing her and bringing her to bed with Shawn and me.....I must say she sleeps like a complete angel then.....she loves being with mommy and daddy....we usually end up getting up around 6.30-7.00am these days.....Hopefully soon Lila will be able to sleep and stay in her room....all in good time. This is the first time she has tried to sleep in a room with out me in it. At Nana and Grandpa's her crib was in my room.....In the Quah her cradle was in our room.....I think about comparing her sleep habits against the twins and there is just no comparison.....they had each other in their room, they were always together and they weren't nursing (which I feel has brought Lila and I closer).....I can totally see how easy it would be to sleep with Lila all the time.....she is such a good snuggle bug.....and definitely a Mommy's Girl.....Ok I can barely type......sleepy, sleepy.....

Man i am jelous, your neighbors bring you cookies and baked goods that is awsome. We hardly talk to our neighbors one moved her crazy sister into her side yard also know ans right in front of our house. She is in a small travel traler that she has made into her own little castle with a mote of all sorts of debris. our other neighbor we didn;t meet until St Patricks day of this year when i was 5 months pregnant with Toby and his dog attacked me.

I would have rather had sweets and great neighbors as compared to mine.
