Growing up too fast....

Daddy's Biker Chix

I couldn't resist when I saw these shirts in the boy's section of store.

Two Toddler's For Sale ;)

Sometimes I am at my wits end with these kiddo's. All I wanted to do was take a shower for 10 stinkin minutes. They love playing in the rice. I know they like the way it feels as they run their fingers thru it, but all over the floor- for the SECOND time in two weeks, COME ON!


Would anybody else like a bite of strawberry?

My crazy kids take a bite off the bottom of the strawberry and leave the rest. I guess I cant blame them. When they get hungry enough and I'm four steps away at the computer this is their payback for not getting them a decent snack but then again I guess strawberries arent that bad.

All in One Weekend...

Chinese Foot Bath, anyone?
I was busy getting supper ready when I looked over and noticed Trista giving herself a foot bath. Those are the bread cans I use when I make bread. I had just made 7 loaves of bread and the cans were soaking in the sink. Trista thought, "what the heck, my feet fit in here perfectly" Yum-anybody like a loaf of my bread;)


Food Coloring does not come outta wood. Chris had to paint the cabinet, I was at work all day, Chris had a sprained ankle and we had a showing on the house in 2 hours.

What exactly have we done to deserve these crazy kids?! Oh wait...its actually the lack of parental supervision. This is what you get when both parents hear the kids downstairs at the butt crack of dawn and both of us were waiting on the other to roll outta bed. When I came down to the kitchen I literally thought two adult Possums had been rummaging in whatever they could get their little paws on. There was pound cake crumbled all over the place, all the M&M's in the bowl from the previous nights get-together were GONE and NEON food coloring dressed our naked children. They were on a sugar high.


I was for sure that Chris has maybe thrown my flip flops out. I had been talking about replacing them for awhile and I figured he just went ahead and did it....which would not be like him to do that but it was just my initial though. I dont know why but something told me to check the vent since I've found valuable items in there before and sure enough....there they were....nice and cold! They are actually missing again but I didnt find them in that same vent...of course not...our oversized curious critters are smarter than that. I still havent found them.:(

The Zoo

Mimi and Papa Tom drove over Thursday evening last week and we spent Friday at the Zoo. Thanks to mimi who got us our zoo memberships. We met up with Erin and the cousins, walked around the zoo and then had a picnic lunch next to the zebras and choo choo train....which the girls were not very thrilled about riding. (You'll see the picture) It was the cutest little train that literally went about 60 sec in this small circle and the girls were devastated that I wasn't going to ride with them. The weather was perfect too.
Thank you Mimi and Papa Tom for making the trip over--the girls love it when you visit & so do we!

Trista-looking all grown up!


I can't believe how big they are getting and I'm noticing it right before my eyes. The other day I was jogging into the YMCA with the girls are on each hip because it was raining. I felt like I'd done a workout before I got thru the door. I know the girls aren't in Mothers Day Out- which I was so hopping for this fall but I think next year will be a better time. Plus I think that being at the Y for 1 and half to two hours a day 4-5 days a week has really helped their speech skills. Sadie put Trista in "time-out" on the steps this afternoon. I had to chuckle because we've never done the "time-out" thing. I'm guessing she learned that at childcare at the Y. And the biggest thing this past week is that I'm officially MOM now. They rarely say MOMMY! It sounded so funny when I first heard it and yet makes me realize just how much they are growing up. These terrible two's can be so exhausting and makes me look forward to 3's until I was told that there are terrible three's also! Oh MY!
Their favorite thing in the morning is to come get in bed with me. The sweet little snuggle doesn't last long because each one wants my head turned in their direction....see the problem?!
Lara- we made the Lady Bug pancakes the other day which they loved! And I love the buttermilk pancake recipe that came on the back. It is now my favorite and I tossed the other one I had been using for the past couple years.
Chris and I celebrated our 11 year anniversary August 20 in Atlanta. We did a quick "swing by" to Mimi and Papa Tom who watched the girls. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! It was so nice to sleep in and get away! BTW- It took me days to explain to them that Mimi and Papa Tom cannot "hold you" because they live "far" away. :)
Just returned from Brown County State park where we spent Labor Day Weekend(2011) with three other families. SO MUCH FUN! Only 4 hours away. The girls loved the horseback riding and the little town three miles away had the CUTEST shops. We only hit 4 shops so we are definitely going back next year! It was a great family trip.
Cant wait the arrival of BABY T, due Oct. 6 where we will make our big road trip with the girls down to Texas. WE ARE SO EXCITED TO MEET HIM. I will officially be an AUNT!
