Time….

Time passes quickly when you have two little ones.  I can’ t believe my little guys are nineteen months old.  And I can’t believe school is almost out and summer is almost here.  Escher and Grey are both saying lots of words and even putting two words together to form small sentences…”Mommy ewww” is a popular one! They also love to tell me when they pee in their diapers. Funny how things are so cute the FIRST time, but then get so OLD in a day or two.  Escher is obssessed with cars and Grey loves her babies.

I’ve been wanting to start a photo wall forever.  I got a great deal on shutterfly.com, so my photo wall has finally begun…we’ll see how it grows!!

Christmas Stockings…finally finished…

 

Well….it only took about a year, but I finally finished everyone’s Christmas stockings….with the help of my mom.  Tuesday, Quinn and River all had stockings that my mom made.  Then, two years ago, Tuesday lost hers.  I don’t know how it happened…but I guess, somehow it got thrown away with all the Christmas wrapping paper.  I was convinced that it was lost somewhere in Tuesday’s room.  But, when we switched her room with River’s we took everything out and there was no stocking.  I was so sad that she wouldn’t have a stocking that my mom had made for her.  Then, Escher and Gray came along and they needed stockings.  I rummaged through my parents Christmas decorations and I found two stockings my mom had made for decorations…so they became Escher and Greys.  Then, I found something else she had cross stitched.  I was nervous to try to make it into a stocking….because if I messed up….there was nothing else to use.  But, after some thought and a lot of waiting, I finally did it.  It turned out pretty well.  What didn’t turn out well was my cross stitching with the names.  Oh well…I’m just not a cross stitcher!!

Embrace the Camera….

I haven’t done an Embrace the Camera in a long time!  Today was incredibly windy and cold!  River found a very large stick and had to poke things the entire way home….from school.  It took a very long time to get home!  But we found a moment for some fun photos!

Happy Thursday and Go Embrace the Camera…..

Snow….

We finally got a little bit of snow.  Not enough for sledding, but enough for slushing through.  I could go for a big snow storm.  Hopefully we will have one…

Nutribullet….

Last week I got a Nutribullet.  My friend got one for Christmas and has been raving about it.  I have wanted a juicer forever and this seemed like just the right one.  So far, it is everything I hoped it would be.  It is small so it doesn’t take up counter space.  It seems very well made and durable.  It is so easy to use…even Tuesday and Quinn use it completely on their own. And best of all, it is so simple to clean.  It takes seconds.  Every day I have some type of drink using all types of stuff…carrots, mango, spinach, celery, apple, chia seeds.  It is wonderful.  I highly recommend it!

Happy Friday….and brrrrrr…..

Happy Friday everyone.  I hope everyone is warm!  I know that is what we are trying to do around here!  It has been so cold all week that we haven’t been outside much at all. Normally I walk River to school and the babies really enjoy the time in the stroller and I like getting the exercise…but not this week.  Too cold!  I am happy it is Friday…happy for the weekend and maybe some family time!!  And for warmer weather.  If it isn’t going to snow I don’t see the point of all the cold weather.

Tea Parties and other stuff…

Everybody is feeling a bit coldish today.  Because of the weather and because of their noses.  So, today was filled withnose wipes, boogies, crying, tears and smelly diapers.  I don’t know why sick babies seem to have very smelly diapers!  River was very happy that we were able to squeeze in a tea party. I had promised her one the day before…but things didn’t work out…so today was the day.  Kitty had a lot to say and was very happy she was invited!  Happy Thursday!

New Year…

Trying to get back into the swing of things.  I may only have time for a photo a day…but I figure that is okay.  I don’t need to have a long post every day..just a glimpse at life before it all flies by.

Happy 2013!
