Tonight we decided to carve our pumpkins. The Girls had been waiting to do this since the beginning of the month when we bought the pumpkins. Kimberly wanted a happy face with circle eyes and nose. Annie wanted a fussy face with angry eyes. Madeline wanted a happy one. : Madeline had such a good [...]
Today Annie turned 3 years old. The day started with her waking up and going downstairs to open her gifts. She loved the Diego set and the dinosaur Kimmie bought her. We went to breakfast with Grammy and Papa. She had to bring the markers Mimi brought her to color with while she waited for [...]
I have taken the girls out shopping separately for each others birthdays. I found out some interesting things. I love who both of them are becoming. Some days I think that they function well with each other and wonder if they would do well without, since they both lean on each other for many skills. [...]
I have decided to give up Diet Coke. I have recently been reading up on it and its effects on people who have seizure disorders. Even if it poses the slightest of danger to Miss Madeline, I would like to eliminate it. So I am doing so. This is not going to be an easy [...]
Today has been a hard day. 1st off Mimi woke up and was kinda “off.” Which I am glad for in a way because I would rather take her in on one of her “off” days than her good ones. You know when you take your kid in for a cough and then they no [...]
“Daddy, I have to vacuum!” — Annie, buck naked coming in the back door. She proceeded to go get some underwear first because I guess you just don’t vacuum completely nude in her world. If I didn’t know better, I’d say she’d become a speed freak. She’s constantly vacuuming the same area over and over.
“Do I have to put the vacuum up on the fridge?” ~ Daddy to Annie and Kimberly For some strange reason today the girls are obsessed with vacuuming. They were fighting over the stick vacuum when Bill said this to them. By the way, when the kids are fighting over a toy and cannot seem [...]
I would love to entertain you with photos from that first game but the bad Mommy that I am forgot it!! Somehow in the midst of getting them ready for the pictures that morning I forgot it. Anyhow, I will get some next weekend. I will however tell you that they were ADORABLE!! Bill is [...]
“Wait! Stop! Annie’s shoe is tied off!” ~Kimberly
Today Kimberly crawled up on the examination table and answered all her questions like a big girl. She was AMAZING! I could not believe how good she was with everything that they did to her. She certainly has grown and matured. My big girl was so well spoken and so adorable. I am so happy [...]
So how many little girls want a pony for their birthday. Not me that is for sure! I think horses are shifty eyed creatures so understand my surprise when my little girl wanted one. Here she is before the creature got her better judgement. Meet Kimberly’s horse, Black Beauty! She really loves this thing. She [...]
“Why you ‘puterin’?” — Kimberly Asked while her mother and sister were shopping for her birthday present and her father was checking his email.
Today Kimberly turns three. She is overjoyed at the idea of it finally being her birthday. She woke this morning, as she does everyday, with a huge grin on her face. She rushed downstairs with the family and promptly opened her gifts. She loved the Ariel doll Annie bought her and the Pony toothbrushes Mimi [...]
We are back from the trip up to the mountains. Annie and Kimberly really enjoyed themselves. Me and my two big girls on a nature walk. The girls first campfire and mashmellow roast Mimi all bundled up. Bill trying to get them to sit for a picture. If you have time you can view all [...]
I know you cannot wait another moment to see these cute little girls in their soccer uniforms so here they are. Annie Elizabeth Kimberly Rose Games begin this Saturday! Give me a call if you need more info about that.
Three years ago Bill wrote an entry about how it was amazing to ponder becoming parents the very next day. Now it seems amazing to not have them here. How times have changed.
Over the weekend we went on a short trip with Grandma and Grandpa Brown. We had a fine time and are happy to be back home sleeping in our beds. The Girls really enjoyed the nature walk we took and playing with their Grandparents in the A-Frame. I am not big on camping and the [...]
Our lives changed forever. Today I went to the firehouse to bring an offering to the firefighters who helped out. I know they were just doing their job but it meant the world to me. They helped precious Madeline to stop seizing. Fireman Johnson helped me to be calm by letting me know that even [...]
Today while I was out a old man approached the basket. He said, “Please tell me this little one is a boy.” People always think Mimi is a boy so that is not that terribly insulting, although she was dressed in a super cute purple romper, so he must have been rude and stupid. I [...]
Mimi has started reading while lying on her tummy. This is something that Bill and Annie enjoy doing. Just thought it was funny that I have seen her like this lately. I think that it is a super cute way to read even though I personally do not enjoy it.« Previous Entries
