Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-oh forget it.

So you may be wondering why I'm just now catching up on, like a THOUSAND blog posts.  Well if you didn't see my Facebook status, here's a musical rendition of how December 15-17th went down:

On the 6th day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
6 filled prescriptions
FIVE co-pays!
4 eye drops
3 ear infections
2 days in bed
And a cor-ne-al abrasion!

So I just caught up on some December-Christmastime happenings, and this week the goal will be to post about the actual Christmas Eve and Day events in the Kiehl household.  Thanks for following our craziness!

A Brave Young Woman

This is Grace - our new babysitter.  While she's a new babysitter, she's not new to us.  She is the daughter of Rachel, one of my "besties" (Rachel-ism).  Grace is now brave old enough to baby sit our kids, and she does a STELLAR job.  Don't even think I'm giving you her phone number.  Plus, I have her on retainer anyway.  So there.

Candlelight Dinner

L-R:  Brett, Me, Carol, Peter, Danica & Stu
For the last four (?) years we've been meeting with these two couples for an annual "Candlelight Dinner" at the golf course during Christmas time.  The guys are all golf buddies, two of Brett's closest friends.  The women have all become friends too - bonus!  Since our first dinner as the six of us, there has been one wedding, 4 babies (with a 5th due in May - don't look at me), job changes, moves, the loss of loved ones and the joy of many blessings.  We're truly honored to call these people friends.

Jingle Bells!

I don't know WHERE he gets his penchant for performing?

Shhh! Don't tell Kristine at Wild Child!

So I've been buzzing Sam's hair for awhile now. Last night I gave him my best haircut yet. That made me brave enough to cut Jane's hair today. It looks pretty good, though I definitely need salon grade scissors and those thinning/layering shears. She's pretty forgiving since she's so damn cute on her own.

I couldn't resist.

When Raspberry Charlotte is on the menu and your first born's name is Charlotte, it's really a no brainer.

Sweet Baby Kate

My newest niece is 3 weeks old today. Happy birthday Kate! We already can't remember what our lives were like without you. You're going pretty easy on your parents, so great job. Please keep up the good work. In a couple weeks we'll be celebrating your first Christmas. I can't wait for you to begin special Christmas traditions with your mom and dad and the rest of us. We love you!
