We got to go to the car show at the Quest Center with my dad and one of the babies cousins. We had such a great time. We loved checking out all the new models of cars. They even had the bat mobile from the last Batman movie. The babies got their picture taken in front of it. I would have to say my favorite part was all the old cars. So cool. Then we went to get a bite to eat and some milkshakes. The babies were wonderful while we were out. The best part of the entire day was spending time with family.
Well, we have been in Omaha several months now and dont get me wrong I do like it but I think I am homesick. I miss New York, I miss our family, I miss our friends, I miss Paula coming every Wednesday come rain or shine, I miss Brittany coming on Mondays, I miss Katie coming a few times a week, I miss going out to dinner with friends (however rare that was), I miss my house, I miss the mountains, I miss the places we used to love to go and eat at, I miss taking the kids to Explore, I miss taking them to Crandall Park, I miss my morning walks around town with them, I even miss NY DMV (we just had to over $700 just to register our vehicles). I guess I am just homesick. I think sometimes change is hard. Any change is hard, especially when you have certain expectations. Not that I am disappointed because I am not, thats not what I mean. I just didnt expect to pay that much just to register cars, I didnt expect the cost of living to be as high, I didnt expect Jeff to not be working yet, I didnt expect to have a landlord that literally said to me "I dont give a sh*t about your kids", I didnt expect that the kids would get so many colds when moving here, I didnt expect it to be so difficult to get the children on state insurance, etc. , etc., etc. But we are closer to family and I am so glad for that. And I am sure some of this is normal right? Its normal to feel a little blah in a new place right? We did just join a triplets group and I am excited about that. I am hoping to meet some people and get to know the Omaha ropes. Guess I am just having a blah kind of a day.
My sweet Nicholas found the family size box of Cheerios on the end stand and decided to dump it all over the front room carpet. What did mommy and daddy do with a front room full or Cheerios and 3 toddlers? . . . Gave them plastic containers to put the Cheerios in of course.
We took Nick to get his first hair cut at a place called Family Fun Cuts. They play video's, have little cars for you to sit in, blow bubbles, you name it. All kinds of fun things to try to make your toddler happy during their hair cute. Sadly it did not work for Nicholas, my poor buddy screamed his head off the entire time!
After Mommy trying to convince him that everything is okaaaaay.
The stylist game him a sucker. He has never had a sucker and didnt have a clue what to do with it! He threw it on the floor. Nice.
Desperately reaching for mommy, he wanted out.
Poor kid. He was so upset! But look how long his hair is on top, he definitely needed a trim.
Mommy frantically feeding him snacks.
All done and feeling better now that daddy's got him.
Jeff and I had an exciting New Years Eve. . . ahem. What does one do when one is in a city they are not familiar with, no know one so no babysitter, and no money you ask. . . one builds castles out of Mega Bloks! That exactly what we did. We actually had so much fun. The rules were to use all the Mega Bloks to build the best castle you could (yes I realize how lame this sounds just work with me folks). Below the castles that we built. To the left you will find a place to vote for the castle you like the best. The winner will be revealed in a couple of days.
