Merry Christmas!!!!  We celebrated Christmas Eve with Richard's parents here.  Richard had duty so he was gone all day and will come home this morning (Christmas day) at 8am.  At this rate, I'll still be up...we're up waiting for a furnace repair man (1am and counting).  At about 11 we noticed the furnace wasn't working.  Did I mention it was a duty day?  Gotta love these d-day adventures.  And I thought I would escape the fate this time because I had company here.

This morning we went to Waffle House for breakfast and then went to Sam's and Wal-Mart and they filled our freezer and pantry!!!  Then we made a....um....lovely....gingerbread house, got dinner and watched Santa Clause and Miracle on 34th Street. 

Merry Christmas to all!!

I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.  Luke 2:10

We are horridly sick over here.  Richard has been okay so far, but all day today he had duty, so we'll see tomorrow night when he gets home if he's still feeling okay.  Lillian has had a fever of 102-103 with alternating Tylenol and Motrin for three days now.  She saw the pedi Saturday morning and has an Upper Respiratory Infection and an Ear Infection.  She is on Ammoxicilian and cough syrup.  I am sure I also have the URI as I feel horrible also for two-three days now, today has been the worse day, so hopefully it will get better from here.  I of course, can't take anything.  I did start a fever today, so now we're both at 102.

A shameless plea

Okay, if someone wants to be my best friend for life, I really, really, REALLY REALLY want this Twin sized Duvet Cover from Pottery Barn for the baby.  I had seen it for Lil and Grandma Shipp got me the crib sheet that I asked for.  When she moved into her big bed, I WANTED the Duvet Cover but Pottery Barn didn't carry that line anymore, I stalked it on ebay and Dad Brill helped me get it over the phone one night while I was out. 

We are going to have the girls in the same room as soon as possible, and I already have the crib sheet that matches Lil's bedding, but I looked today and Pottery Barn IS CURRENTLY CARRYING the set again!!!  They have the matching Twin Duvet Cover!!! Which is great, because I first looked at ebay and they don't. 

Anywho, its stupid expensive, and I understand that (hence why its not on its way to me right this second), but with Lil we just got that Duvet cover and added our own blankets, pillows and sheets (from walmart/target :-) to help make the whole ensemble more affordable. 

Pretty please??!?!

We already have the name picked out so I can't offer to name her after you, but you'll be my best friend for life...and maybe be in a blog post later...........THANKS GRANDMA SHIPP for the Crib sheet that I still LOVE so much, and THANKS DAD BRILL for helping me stalk and purchase the Twin Duvet. 

See, isn't it still gorgeous?

PS-And would someone tell R to decide already if he wants another one after this or not, so I know if we should just go ahead and get two more instead of one? :-D 


(I have also added it to baby's wishlist here, for easy ordering, or incase 12 people want to rush and order one today :-D, you can see that one has already been ordered.)

We got an official (although secret) schedule for Richard for the next two years.  In the next year he will be gone 236 days/overnights, in addition to regular working hours on the times he is here.  This does not include any deployment time, that will come after this. 

As of right now, he is scheduled to miss:
His birthday
The birth of the baby- Yeah, AWESOME right?
Our anniversary
Lil's birthday
My birthday
His birthday
Baby's first birthday....possibly
Our next anniversary
Possibly Christmas


I'm now taking reservations for guests/child help/insanity prventers.  Seriously..... Lets say, I need at least one visitor a month from April 2011 to December 2012.
