Lately

I swear between taking care of two year old's, sewing, cleaning, cooking and everything else I never find time to blog. It makes me sad. I just don't understand how all these other mom's out there have time. What is wrong with me? Ugh! However, I always find time to take pics of my little sweeties. I even upload pics to Facebook all the time. I guess just be glad I can't blog from my phone because I would have so many post on here haha! Maybe one day they will make a good app for that. In the meantime, here are some pics of my little ladies at their best.
Ha ha! She is so silly! She calls her pacifier her "Wa Wa". I have no clue where that came from.

I am sorry I look awful in these pics but I had to show the bow Sk put in my hair....

.....And the "hat" Al put on my head!!

They love their Daddy!!

Little Diva wearing her mama's rings!!


This is the newest dress I've made. She loves it!!

This one actually cried and pitched a fit when I tried to put that dress on her.

She would not take this dress off all day!!

Al loves to stack blocks! Bless her heart though. Sk loves to knock them over!!

To the Park and Back All in One Piece

I have really been trying to get these girls outside everyday especially since it's getting warmer out. Here's the thing my yard sucks. It's tiny but that I can work with. We are currently in a duplex so technically we share a yard. My neighbor has a dog so there is poop everywhere. That I can't work with. I can deal with changing diapers but I refuse to deal shoes covered in dog poo. In the words of Al and Sk, YUCK! Sadly, I have had to wash some shoes off. So point being going out in our yard is not ideal. We are moving soon by the grace of God! We do have some awesome parks around here though. Whenever Josh is off we always go to one of the parks. So that's what twice a week. Sunday I decided I needed to get over myself and take my girls to the park by myself. It was scary but we survived. It's really hard to make two almost two year old's both stay right beside you at all times. Well it's hard for me anyway. Al wanted to run off and explore everything. Sk wanted to slide over and over and over. There were a lot of people at the park on Sunday. These two 8 or 9 year old's jumped in front of Al and Sk on the slide and almost knocked them over. The parents were standing right there and didn't say a word to them. I mean really? It was the toddler play area. If your older kids want to play on the baby things that's fine but at least teach them to be easy around little ones. Sorry I had to vent. I am protective of my babies. 




I am sure you noticed the pigs in the pics. Al had to have both of them. She is so silly. Anyway, I am so glad we went. The girls had a blast and so did I. I liked it so much I even took them the very next day but to a different park. Now that I know I can handle it, I will start taking them more often. Two year old's don't scare me. Well actually they kind of do haha! Oh and here is a video of the girls swinging:

See I've got this!!


Dress up

As I was getting the girls ready for bed tonight they found the box of dress up clothes I had stored in their room. I have made it a tradition to buy Halloween costumes they day after Halloween so I could build up a nice collection of dress up clothes for the girls. I loved playing dress up when I was little. I don't know why I hadn't got them out for the girls by now. I should have known they would like playing dress up. They love putting on clothes, shoes, hats, and bows. Well, usually Al prefers to wear a hat or bow and shoes only. She's not a big fan of actual clothes. Sk on the other hand loves to wear anything. She will put on her daddy's shirts and ties, my shoes, her everyday clothes. She doesn't care. She just loves to dress up. So of course she was as happy as a hornet when she saw tutus, dresses, and hats galore all in one box. Al was the first one to bring a tutu over and make me put it on her. Fairy wings were the hit of the night for both girls. They both pitched a fit when I took them off to put them to bed, but not before I snapped a few pics!



They like to bump knuckles and give each other high fives!
