Merry Christmas from the Erbe's

In very traditional fair, the Erbe family wishes you a very merry Christmas.

A trip down a bouncy slide

We decided to take the kids to bounceland on Friday instead of going shopping. Other than Atticus, everyone had a great time. Even me as you can see.!

Sebastian's Veggie Tales song

I don't have words to describe this. That's all I have to say.

Alexandra's Thanksgiving Song(s)?

At Preschool, they have been singing Thanksgiving songs. As she was eating dinner she started singing. I'm glad I had the camera close, it's too funny! How many versions are there? I'm not sure.

Sebatian's OT appointment

Yesterday we had another OT yesterday with "Dr. Joann". He now gets really excited to go see her because it's so much fun. He was very focused which was good she got to see the lack of dominance in his sides. He doesn't cross over his body to color or to do anything. She gave me some tips on how to help us establish his right side as his dominant side. He's starting to jump from an inch of the ground. He's kicking better and communicating so much better. She says as we start to meet his sensory issues he'll develop physically and verbally. As I've said before it's like he's come alive. It's very cool. So needless to say the appointments are going really good.

Timing is everything, right?

Today there came some finality to a situation that I thought was dead a long time ago but today it was really done. In the midst of the decision I got to air my thoughts and feelings about the situation. I feel good about that but with other factors involved I'm struggling with feeling like I've been doing something for 10 years and what do I have to show for it. I shouldn't look at it that way but that's where I'm at right now. It sucks the way certain situations are handled and I don't like being treated the way I was treated. I deserve better. I'm trying to focus on that and not on the negative. I also think this is for the best, God knows that but I'm still mourning it. I'm also frustrated that I haven't been able to gain any new work on the website front despite my best efforts. This is just one of those days where I'm glad tomorrow will different.

Yesterday we had people over for home group. Alexandra came home from School and asked if we were having a party. I said no, we're not having a party. She said "Why did you clean up the season room". I said very stunned, "Because it was dirty". I laughed later when I told Paul because she's right, I only clean the three season room when we are having people over. Isn't that horrible. Who can I blame for that??? Just kidding Mom and Dad! Love ya!

Under the sea

I love these moments. They are all standing up dancing to something. Hopefully the video isn't too dark to see.

Crossing the picket line

I know it's a weird title but one of my friends wanted to know if my reality show took a break because of the writers strike. I have no comment, other than one of my other friends always knows when we're sick or really busy because I don't blog. That's pretty much it. After the chest colds we had, I got a head cold and now everybody's got. Also lots of things have been broken around there. A car, a dryer, an outlet in the bathroom. The list goes on and on. I think we're starting to get better. Alexandra still has this nasty cough but she's getting better. We got the car fixed but now the van is acting up. The dryer is Erin's dryer downstairs and we have a line on another dryer that we will hopefully get soon. Sebastian's language has just amazed me. The other night he was up, talking when Paul and I went to bed. I went in and asked him what was wrong. He told me he was cold. I asked if he wanted warmer pj's. He said yes. I was amazed that he could tell me he was cold. Last night at the bookmobile he saw a sign on the door that said "push here" and he spelled all the letters. I am just amazed and thankful for the progress he has made. I guess that's enough up date for now.
