Too Quiet!

So the kids spent the night at Grandma Sharon's last night and I could not fall asleep! It was so quiet and wierd and I didn't get to sleep until after 3 AM because I woke Aaron up and then he couldn't go back to sleep and then he went out and watched TV so I was finally able to fall asleep since I heard the TV going. I missed them both so much but they had an awesome time at Grandma's and playing with cousins.
We are in the process of getting Christmas stuff up and realized that we have no outlets on the outside of our house so that means no lights on the house this year. I was pretty bummed since I had some icicle lights that I've been hanging onto for a few years and I was hoping to finally be able to use them this year. Oh well it's just another project that has been added to the "to do" list.
I also realized that the last three Thanksgivings in the Esau family someone has been pregnant. Shannen was pregnant 2 years ago and I was last year and Rachel is pregnant this year so I am just wondering, is this going to be continued next year? I guess we'll have to just wait and see, no pressure though.

This was taken a week before we had Olivia, as you can see the house was not ready yet. We had the carpet installed and all of our stuff moved into our house the day before I had her. This is of me standing by the front window in the living room. Everything looks so nice now and we were able to move in a week after Olivia was born.

Mommy and Olivia. She was black and blue from the cord being around her neck.

Tristan found a can of spray paint outside and decided to spray it, as you can tell it was pointed right at his face! I was pretty freaked out but he ended up being fine. But I must also point out that the band-aid on his head was from less than a week before when he fell and cracked his head open so the band-aid is covering up his stitches. I was like 2 weeks away from delivering Olivia so needless to say he was really making me an emotional mess.
Hello everyone. I am VERY new to this blogging business but I hope to get the hang of it. This has been a very busy year for our family. We had baby number 2, Olivia Nicole, and finally were able to buy a house! A lot of work was done on our house before we could move in but thank Heaven's for family, namely my uncle Brett and all the people he knows. We are pretty much settled and are enjoying our very own home. We still have some fixing up and finishing to do but we are good for right now. We are learning that work is never done when it comes to taking care of your home. But we do know that it is worth it. We love living so close to grandparents and family that we couldn't have asked for a more perfect home. We live about 3 blocks away from my grandparents and about 6 or 7 away from my parents and are about 10 minutes from Aaron's mom and his grandma. I know it sounds like an in-laws nightmare but it's actually really nice.
Olivia has brought such a sweet spirit into our home, as all babies do, and everyone just loves her, especially Tristan. She is adorable and is an awesome baby. She started sleeping through the night on her own at 2 months and that has made mom VERY happy. Tristan is almost 3 and is talking more than ever. He is really observant of peoples emotions and likes to point out whenever we are happy, sad or mad. He is so funny and so full of energy and is quite the daredevil. I don't think anything scares him.
Aaron and Nicole are still just Aaron and Nicole, nothing to update there except that thank goodness Aaron's beard was finally shaved off the night before we had Olivia.
