Happy New Year!

I can't remember the last New Year's I actually stayed up to celebrate, but I almost made it last night. Kevin is out of town for 8 days, and we're all sick (except Ben). Sooo, I get to try to get myself and 3 kids better. Oh, and try to somewhat keep the house in order. Blah!
Kevin and I went Christmas shopping together one day while my mom watched the kids and one of the things we bought was for Kaitlin. It was a remote control dog because she wanted a puppy so much! Well, after leaving the store we drove by some Bassett Hound puppies for sale! Kevin and I have always wanted one because they're so lazy. :) So, we got her and have had her for 4 weeks now. The kids named her Bella, and they are all doing a fabulous job taking care of her!! She gets pretty crazy at times, but that's just the puppy in her. Tonight Ben was wrestling and running around with her. Noah's slowly getting use to her. Anytime he sees a dog coming toward him now, he immediately puts his hand up in front of his face to block the dog from licking him (Bella licks him any chance she gets, and he does not like it...I can't blame him, I don't like dog kisses either.)
The kids and I are camping out in the living room by the fireplace tonight. It's so peaceful watching them sleep. It's one of my favorite things to do. :)
We made smores a few weeks ago, and Kevin put his down and left it unattended...
Haha! I look over and Noah had almost eaten the whole thing! And then a few weeks later I found him in the kitchen sneakin' cookies!! :) He was so proud of himself!
Our church put on a kids Christmas choir concert/play/dinner and Kaitlin got to sing and even had a line, "We want you to know that God loves you very much". We loved it and she did such a good job singing! And the kids LOVE to dress up, so they were super excited to get to do that too!
Noah turned 1 on the 16th! We had a The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed birthday party for him.
