Sandi bought The Girls an exercise trampoline from Wal-Mart and they loved it. I can’t imagine anyone finds that surprising. What was surprising is how courteous and civil Annie and Kimberly were about taking turns! Each would jump for a little bit and then turn to the other and say, “Okay, other sibling’s name, it’s [...]
“Annie stopped singing. Hoooray!” – Kimberly, who had previously screamed at Annie to stop singing Laurie Berkner’s “Moon Moon Moon” incorrectly and was told that Annie can sing whatever she wants.
We finally got Annie and Kimberly’s big girl beds up and completely outfitted. There was a delay because Annie’s bed arrived damaged in shipping. Today we finally have everything complete. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. (If you cannot see the pictures just email us and let us know, we will be happy [...]
Annie has such a delightful spirit. She is adorable and happy to be her. She is concerned with others and their feelings. She completely sums up the term free spirit. I love this about her!!! I cannot imagine her any other way. However, this free spirit bothers me sometimes. Today we took the kids to [...]
“Is our mall sick” – Kimberly Said when we told her that we were going to go to a new mall today instead of our normal mall.
“Mommy I coldy” – Annie Said when playing outside. It was 111 and 11% humidity!!! What is she thinking??
First day of no naps was, well you read the title. They laid down and watched The Goofy Movie and laid nicely on the couch. That part of the day went fine it was later when everything went downhill. They were so fussy and crabby by the time it was remotely near bedtime. I put [...]
I think that the time has come where Annie and Kimberly are giving up their midday nap. This is not a good news type of situation. Annie and Kimberly can be very demanding and it is really nice to have a bit of a break to keep your strength up. Annie has been napping only [...]
I have to say that I am pleased that we decided to call Madeline, Mimi. I love the name and it suits her so well.
and practically everyday around here. “Mommy I am going to be nice.” – Kimberly She says this each time she is put in time out for her misbehavings.
Today is Father’s Day! I am glad that Bill is the father of my children. I think that they have made him a better person while he is making them better people. The other day I took the girls shopping for gifts for Daddy. They know Daddy loves books so they wanted to each get [...]
Bill and I are is the fun phase of our lives. We never really partied or went crazy in college. We were basically there to learn the information we needed to to graduate and move on to the next phase of our lives. Although we did not have kids for a very long time we [...]
Last night Mimi sat in a booster chair at dinner and ate off a big girl plate. When did this happen? Seemed like just yesterday she could barely see over the tray in the high chair. Now looks like she no longer needs them. I have to say that I am eager to get the [...]
This is Annie’s new phrase. She likes to run about in just her underwear and since it is 111° outside we have the A/C set pretty low. So when she is just sitting around watching tv or playing she will tell us, “I coldy.” It is completely pathetic and yet serious! How can the child [...]
The other day we bought the girls a slip and slide. Although the box said 5 and up I was sure that was just for lawsuit purposes. I bought it and set it up for the girls yesterday. They LOVED it!! Especially Mimi which is odd since she does not like bathing or swimming all [...]
I loved the time to relax and complete Annie and Kimberly’s baby books. I loved that I was able to do such complex layouts and really showcase my children. I think that these will be treasured memories. I got a whopping 68 pages completed this weekend!!! It was amazing. My cousin Michelle completed 36! That [...]
We are back from the outpatient surgery. Mimi did terrific. She is an amazing baby. Last night we were up from 1-2 so I figured she had another ear infection. I was right!! Thankfully it is cleared up now. She is recovering well and happy to be home. It was so cute, during surgery they [...]
I’m on Day 2 of her trip. So far things have been pretty good; I don’t know why she always acts like it’s hard taking care of them. I’m only kidding. They’ve been overall pretty good so far but meal times have been, as I expected, maddening. First, it’s hard to decide what they might [...]
Tomorrow I am leaving on a 3 day adventure by myself. It is a scrapbooking weekend. My cousin Michelle and I are going to her Dad’s cabin, which used to be our Grandparents home. We are going to have the best time. A couple of other ladies were going to join us but they had [...]
