What's been going on.

This will be a very random, all over the place kinda blog post. Oh, and it looks long but it's just a lot of big pictures. :)

What's been going on in our house? Well, I'll tell ya.

I never posted about Kayla's birthday because right after it was Thanksgiving. For her birthday (and Kinsley's) I didn't have a party. We just celebrated it the whole weekend as a family.

We had grandparents over for presents.
She wanted to go to Chuck e cheese so we did.
We went to Texas Roadhouse for her birthday dinner and she rode on the saddle.
Then we went to Grandpa's and had ice cream cake and presents again.

It was a weekend all about her and what she wanted to do. No request was too big.

















I took her to her 6 year check up yesterday. She's 3 ft 10 in (60%) and 40.3 lbs (10%.) Skinny mini. We arrived at the doctors healthy, but woke up this morning sick. We all have colds. Hopefully they'll pass soon.

Friday we decorated the tree and I decorated the rest of the house. My husband refused to put lights up outside this year. He learned in school that lights outside are the NUMBER ONE thing to start fires and burn your house down. (Why did I have to marry an electrician?? They are no fun this time of year.) I may have thrown a tantrum. Ok, I did. But then he let me go buy battery operated candles for the windows and wreaths. So it worked out for me in the end because I like to do any kind of shopping.

Kinsley has learned a new trick. Put your arms up and jump up and down and mommy will pick you up. She does it all. day. long. Seriously. She also only has 2 more weeks in our room. My mom comes next Friday and after she leaves Kinsley's getting kicked out of our room by my husband and going into her (and Kyleigh's) room. Thank God Kyleigh is an amazing sleeper. She also has been determined to get just one Christmas ornament. No matter where I move it she tries to get it.

I took some newborn pictures for my friend on Saturday. So, if you're a photographer you can just skip these next few images. :)





I still haven't gotten the background to look exactly how I would like on that last image but I'm so proud of myself. Look at that pose! And don't worry. It's two photos put together. The mama is holding the baby the whole time. See...

I've been pinterest-ing it up.



That's the key to our first house together. :)

Last but not least. Elf on a shelf has came to visit us for the first time. His name is Ralphie. I'm hoping he'll make the girls not fight as much and make them listen. At least for the month of December.


So, that's been our life the past week and a half. What have you been up to??

Oh, and one last thing. Does anyone want to come potty train my 2 year old in 2 weeks?? Please?? Anyone??

  1. oooooo.... LOVE me some skee ball! Can't wait to see more pics of Ralphie and what he's up to. We decided to partake in the whole thing NEXT year as I think Drew is still a bit too young to understand all that.

  3. I love the pictures from the birthday get together! Hard to pick a favorite but the one of Kayla eating ribs is the cutest thing! Her face just looks so happy and carefree and like she is really enjoying that food. It's a shame I can't eat like that and stay as skinny as her!

    Hope you all feel better soon! Also make sure you update us on the sleep situation. I'm obsessed with knowing how other people handle transitions like that considering Natalie still sleeps with us.
