Happy New Year!

I see I'm a little behind on my blogging once again! I keep meaning to blog, but something (or I guess someone or someones) have distracted me from my goal! So let's see if I can catch everyone up on what has been happening with the Crowe family.

We had a nice Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve over at my parents house for dinner and the kids opened up some presents over there. Then we stayed home for Christmas and my parents came over later to enjoy some raclette with us and of course play some Mario Kart on the Wii! I tell you that game is very addictive! It was fun watching the kids open their presents up, Christmas just seems to mean so much more when you get to share it with little ones!

Jaxon turned the big 4 on New Year's Eve. We just hanged out at home for his birthday since that was the day we got hit with the big snow storm and the roads were a mess. So on New Years Day we went to Red Robin with both sets of Grandparents to celebrate. He got all shy when the waiters/waitresses sang happy birthday to him, it was pretty cute! He had a good birthday though and loved his presents (which all seemed to have something to do with cars/trucks!)

To start off the new year, we decided to work on getting Mr. CJ potty trained. I have to say that he is doing really well with it (knock on wood). I think we might actually have the peeing down, he really hasn't had too many of those types of accidents since the first couple days or so that we started. Now the pooping on the other hand isn't going quite as well, but I'm hoping that it will all click into place for him soon. Good thing he only does #2 once day!! I even sent him in his underwear to school today. I had thought about putting some pull-ups on him, but decided that he has been doing such a great job at using the potty that we would give it a shot (and he stayed dry at school and didn't have an accident)!

On the baby front everything is looking good! Hard to believe it's only a month or so away! We rearranged the kids room over the holidays to make room for everyone. Ryann get's to bunk in the same room as the baby, so she's pretty excited about that. My last doctor's appointment was on New Year's Eve and she was sounding nice and healthy! At my last ultrasound she was measuring/weighing about 2 weeks ahead of schedule. Doug thinks she's going to make her appearance at the beginning of February. So we'll see what happens! I did finally get around to setting up a baby pool since a few people have asked me about it. So if your interested in putting in a guess just follow this link:

So anyways, that's pretty much all that's been happening over here! I need to upload the pictures from my camera to the computer and go through them all so I can post some more recent pictures here. I will try to get to that soon! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. Hope this year brings everyone lots of joy and happiness!
