Recently Dean and I have been having a visitor in our room in the middle of the night. Alexis has been pushing her way in between us sleeping sideways taking up as much space as possible. I know we should take her back to her room as soon as she gets there to keep from starting bad habits but at 3am I am just not in the mood to get out of my comfy bed and escort her back to her room. I'm sure that would turn into another book and another version of our nightly prayers too which would delay my sleep even more. She takes up so much room with her little body that Dean has even gotten up and gone down to the couch just to keep from getting kicked in the ribs. Me, I'm not moving no matter what. Anyway, the other night I woke up out of a deep sleep with this feeling of someone watching me. I didn't even hear a peep. Wow was I shocked to see Alexis standing there staring at me. It was such an eerie feeling. I can't watch scary movies for that reason. Needless to say I wasn't getting out of bed at that point so I just threw her into the middle. I just laid there wondering how long she was standing there staring at me. Only she knows. I think for the future I'm going to hang a bell on my door just to alert me when Alexis is on her way in.

The past few weeks have been pretty busy around here. It's really no excuse for not staying up on my blog but it is difficult when you're busy. This past week my parents came up and spent the week with us. My dad got to play golf everyday and loved every minute of it. All of us got to play together on Saturday and then take in an Indians game. My mom spent the days watching Alexis until I got home from work. We went shopping and spent too much money. For some reason I always spend more money when my mom comes into town. Needless to say we had a great time. Alexis really got to spend some quality time with Nana and Papa. We were all sad when they had to leave. Alexis continued to ask where they were the entire next day and kept asking when they were coming back. We have a vacation scheduled for next month so we'll get to see Nana and Papa again soon. We all are definitely looking forward to some time away. I am counting the days until I have some time off of work. It never seems to last long enough though.
