Just killin' time

Just when you thought there was not one more possible thing these girlies needed-----well, GLOVES!
To buy or not to buy? They enjoyed the snow until they got a running start down the hill which ended in a face plant and snow all over their hands and face. NOT COOL, MOM! Would it really be necessary to buy gloves for the 2 times it will snow in Tenn. See, their little coats they have on are actually 18months size- I'm squeezing them into them since buying new ones for this season would just be silly. Although, all I would have to do is mention the word to Mimi or JuJu and POOF- they would have em! Mom, I think you did ask if they needed coats and they are fine but didn't realize they wouldn't like the snow on their hands. We desperately needed some fresh air time today. Chris sold the auction car last week which left us home bound for 5 days practically. It wasn't so bad since we were in the middle of potty training. Then on Monday we got a Blizzard, by TN terms, and Chris felt it would be safer to take the cruiser. Okay hun, I know you want any excuse to drive in the snow/ice. We did have a car here but then thought ahead and pictured myself cramming two car seats into a tiny Mits.Eclipse sports car......NOT!
Aren't they just the cutest little snuggle bunnies. Poor Trista, any more snot running down that nose and she would boot Rudolph right out of his spot. The only part dreaded of winter-----runny noses and the cold.......and being stuck inside most of the time.

The only problem with playing outside in the snow and potty training is the double decker layers you have to peel when they say those sweet little words, "Pe Pe"! Once they've gone on the potty then it turns to a resounding, "PEE PEE" followed by "COOKIE"
Did I mention yet that we are potty training?;) Trista decided to jump back on board yesterday and this will be day two of no diaper except for naps and nighttime. She surrendered her duties of clapping and emptying Sadie's pee pee to tooting her own horn- we'll see how long it lasts. They are comfortable sitting on the big potty and go several times a day but we do have a little problem.......#2 is still SCARY to them. We are working on that. Thanks to me and my quick hands I have swooped in and caught several in mid air with the little potty- whew..... but enough about their bowel movements. Moms, this is challenging stuff! With two I am running constantly back and forth to the bathroom. And yesterday Trista needed to go, Sadie didn't like that Trista needed to go and ran to the potty and sat down...with her pants on(she didn't even need to go). Mommy was trying to stir the veggies so they wouldn't burn and Trista couldn't reach the big potty so she pee'd down her leg. I felt so bad and definitely scolded Sadie for dominating the little throan!
After coming in from the snow and stripping down to the bare minimum Trista decided that bare bun's and warm vent would do just the trick. What can I say, my kids would love to be naked rather than clothed. Sorry Trista for exposing your "chandelier" as my aunt would call it-HA!Never heard it refered to as that before.Until next time just wanted you to know whats been happen to kill time.
Doing a special dinner with just the family. Hmmmm I wonder where we'll go.
