Curse of the new clothes

I swear my girlies know when I put them in something new. It doesn't matter if it is a new onesie or new pants or a new shirt, they can sense it, because each and every time they blow out their diapers. I am becoming a whiz at getting stains out, but it is still a pain, and all those stains do not always come out. But it is inevitable that within 2 hours of being put into something new that loud explosion will be heard and no sooner than I can pull them out of whatever they are sitting in or laying on, there will be poop everywhere. You can't get mad, I mean they don't know what has happened so all you can do is laugh, put them in the bath and know that next time it will happen again! So here is to the curse of the new clothes, let them be fresh and clean for an hour, because that is about all they will get...if that! :-)

Happy Four Month Birthday Baby Girls

To my Beautiful Baby Girls:
Today you are four months old. I cannot believe that this much time has passed already. Luckily your momma hasn't had to go back to work and I am able to spend each and every day with you, watching you grow and passing milestone after milestone. Although you are identical, you two have very different personalities and it is exciting watching you change every day. You are both starting to roll over now and sit up a little on your own. It won't be long before you are crawling and next walking. It is all so exciting and I am so grateful to have the two of you in my life. I know your daddy feels the same way. We were nervous about having two babies at one time, but now I cannot imagine what life would be like without you. The two of you look at each other now and you laugh at each other and hold hands and play. It brings smiles to our faces. You even laugh at us and it makes me laugh so hard sometimes that I cry out of joy. You two are the most precious things in my life and I just want to wish you a happy four month birthday my baby girls. I love you! Your Momma

Snow Days

Today is an official snow day for Tom. His work told all non-vital employees to work from home and not to report to the office. Lots of fun I think, a day home with the family an added bonus to the weekend, a time to remember. However, there are a lot of adults who feel that snow days are a burden and a pain. This makes me wonder, WHY? When did snow days become such a pain? When we were kids we used to huddle around the television waiting for our school's name to scroll across the bottom of the screen, waiting in anticipation for that day off, that day of fun and freedom. But as adults we don't wait for that fun, why is that? Shouldn't we cherish the time with our families. Yeah, so you can't go out into town or do anything, but do we always need to be on the go, running here and there. I think sometimes we as a society need to take a step back and slow down, enjoy life instead of watching it pass us by at warp speed. So instead of worrying about all the work that might be waiting for you when you return to work, sit back, enjoy a good book, or play a game with your family and enjoy life!

When Smells Evoke Memories

A few weeks ago I got some new face wash, just good ole Neutrogena, but it was a new one for me and I must say I enjoy it. Not for the pimple control, but because every time I was my face I think of going to Florida when I was a child. I don't know why, but for some reason the way this soap smells just makes me think of Florida and spending time at my grandparents condo. Maybe I used to use this soap when I was younger, or maybe it just smells nice and makes me think of the warmth, but whatever it is, it puts a smile on my face each time I use it. Maybe I am just urning for warmer weather and the days of summer and sun. The fact that we are on the boarder of the blizzard warning or the fact that is has been below freezing for ever, but whatever it is I enjoy the memories.

Murphy's Law

Well, it seems like when it rains it poors or something like that. Tom and I have decided that it is time for us to put our house on the market. We don't have enough space here and we need a basement for that nice tornado season. So we have been doing small projects and getting the house ready and of course wouldn't you know we have had things start to break on us! First it was the day we woke up and it was literally 59 degrees in our house...way to cold for the little ones, so we had to have a repair man out, only to find out that we needed to change our filter...go figure, but now we know that we have to change it a lot more frequently than we had thought. Then yesterday I went to do a load of laundry and the washing machine wouldn't start. I thought okay, either the pipes are frozen or the washer has finally died. Well, wouldn't you know it the pipes were frozen. So Tom had to run home during lunch in order to help unfreeze the silly pipes. I guess it is just way to cold out there for those pipes on the outside wall. So luckily we haven't had to shell out any money, but we hope we can get out of here before something major breaks! So keep your fingers crossed and if you know anyone looking for a three bedroom ranch in Brownsburg, let us know!
