It's Alive!!!

Dr. Frankenstein has done his job and the Lappy is b-a-c-k! I'm so excited!

So here are some things y'all missed while the Lappy was on Dr. Frankenstein's operating table.

1.) We got a van!!! (Yes, I'm aware that I'm using excessive exclamations, I'm very excited)
This van will save my sanity. We are planning on driving to Arizona and Utah for Christmas. Can you imagine that fun road trip in a tiny Honda Accord with two toddlers and an infant smashed together in the backseat? But no! That doesn't have to be my future! Now I can relax in a captain's chair with my darling baby in her car seat, safe from the other two hooligans. All the while they have a good amount of space between them, as well. We'll listen to the Sirius radio (if they haven't figured out that we aren't paying for it by then) and books on CD, and it will be so fun! Can't wait to see you Arizona Omers and Buckner G-parents!

2.)The Squealing Pig (his mother gave him that nickname, not me) that I babysit has now put himself to sleep three times. This is a wonderful development.

3.) The semester of dental school is almost done! Classes are out and the students will be doing sealants at the local schools. Yay!

4.) I'm doing a REAL BOOK REVIEW! That's right! Wahoo, People! H.B. Moore sent me her new book, Abinadi, for me to read and review and so far it is great! I don't think this book is even out yet at bookstores, but I have it! I've been wanting to read this book since the last LDStorymakers writing conference and she told me about it as we ate icky hotel breakfast food together. As soon as I'm done I'm going to post the review right here for you all so you can run out and get it as a great read for yourself or someone you luv!

5.) My kids are dang cute.

6.) Jeremy is doing pretty good with the potty thing. He has now earned two Matchbox cars!

And I think that's about it for now. I'll post a picture of the car later today. I haven't had a chance to take a picture yet because the weather has been so cruddy every time I think about it.

Congrats! The day we moved up to a bigger car (we went with the SUV instead of the van) was a happy day indeed. I love being able to have a seat between each kid, with no worries that the baby will always have a hand, or french fry, or toy in her face.

Also though, if possible - get or borrow a DVD player for those long drives, they are a life saver.

Hurray for the Lappy being reborn!!! You have got to love that freedom back!

we don't drive to CA without a portable DVD player. They are Amazing hooligan tamers!!!

I'm happy that you got your laptop back, and congrats on the van! (sorry, VAN is a dirty word in my house, I'm going with an SUV baby!!)
