May Happenings 2011

Sadie on Left/ Trista on Right
Trista in Green Sadie in Blue
I kinda knew May would be just as crazy as the past few months but Mimi's wedding was definitely worth it. Oh to be young again and in love. Wait a minute....they arent really all that young;) but they are IN LOVE! Glenda Carlson became Glenda Hayes on May 21, 2011 at 3:55pm. What a beautiful wedding it was. Why can't weddings be as simple as theirs was? Simple meal, simple decorations, simple cake, simple attire and yet I know it was not a simple task. Tom's sisters,sister in laws& friends set a spectacular spread! Practical is the word I'm looking for. I'll just say I've changed my way of thinking over the past couple years and I'm teaching the girls about practicality. Lets keep it simple girls, for mommy's wallet sake:)

Almost 2.5 years old and they are keeping me on my toes.
They brush their own teeth, they enjoying skyping with oni Johnny and Oni steve and Juju. They are still in seperate rooms. Sadie still hates her veggies, they stay dry thru their naps, they love popcicles, they still loved to be held and rocked. I can actually read a book to them at bedtime and make it thru. They love to blow bubbles in the tub...with their mouth that is;) Sadie occasionally will fake foam at the mouth when she doesnt get her way...its actually hilarious to watch but needless to say she gets a nice swat on the butt for it. Trista loves peddaling her bike around the kitchen. They know how to get their stool to get things out of the drawers...oh yay- NOT! They can get on and off the toilet on their own and they both give me lots of hugs and kisses when I ask.

Thelma & Louise go CAMANDO....I mean Rambo style.

Sadie in the seat and Trista under the hood!

I just couldnt resist.
You know its the end of the day, and three outfits later that I'm just exhausted trying to keep their clothes/bottoms on. Chris is somewhat disgusted with the fact that I've taught them to squat and go Pee pee in the grass. That's what they do oversea's. Right, mom? Right, Titi? I guess I just have to reiterate to them that its only okay to do it in our back yard and on our grass-- not other peoples:)
This past weekend was so nice and we are outside all the time. I'm so thankful we have such a great backyard for the girls to play. I think the truck will be the highlight for the summer along with their new pool that I need to go get. I'm just trying to figure out a day when i want to go strap this huge round pull to the hood of the car and drive home! I, of course, did not buy the green monster for them. My neighbor who has a little boy has TWO and he "doesnt ride this one anymore" said the mom, so they gave it to the girls. These battery operated "vehicles" are around $200 and the battery alone is $100!
They LOVE it! Chris said it sure beats the pink corvette. WHAT?! It beats a corvette!?!
They take turns riding it and as you can tell today they were having a little bit of "trouble" under the hood!:)
