California Here We Come!

My girls in matching pinafores I made them.

My beautiful ballerina!

I love Molly's gorgeous eyes!

Sister kisses!! Ewwww!

My beautiful girl Molly.

This is how I found Grace sleeping...

Grace is in a Boba on my back and Molly is in an Ergo on the front...just to see if I could. :)

It has been a busy week! Last Friday my DH came home and asked me what I thought about going to California for a few weeks. He travels quite a bit for work. Wednesday it was a sure thing and we are leaving tomorrow morning at 6:30am! It takes quite a bit of work to pick up the lives of four people and go away for three weeks. That is what I have been doing the last few days. I am soooo tired, but I'm up waiting to throw my diaper laundry into the dryer so I thought I'd add a few pictures to my blog. I hope you enjoy them. Hopefully next week I'll have some beach pictures to share!!!

We are all alive and well!

It has been way to long since I have updated the blog. It is so easy to get caught up in life and let this go by the wayside. Let's see, in the last two months quite a bit has happened. Molly has three more teeth and is walking like a pro. She gets into everything and thinks its funny when you tell her no. She is finally sleeping through the night. She just stopped nursing this past Sunday. It makes me sad, but she went two months longer than Grace did, which is good! She still isn't really talking, but she can sign please, all done, and up. I know she's got a light bulb on in there and I am sure once she starts talking I'll be wishing she didn't talk so much!

Grace is such a big girl! She is day potty trained now, with just an occasional accident, usually when she is busy and forgets to go. I tried night time potty training her and she just isn't ready yet. I'm okay with that. She knows all her letters and we are working on her numbers. I want to start teaching her how to read soon. I'm procrastinating a little because I think it is going to be a large undertaking and I'm not a very patient teacher. Grace still cracks me up all the time, at least when shes not driving me crazy with the whining of a two year old. Recently I thought I heard someone in the bathroom in the middle of the night, but I fell back asleep. In the morning I wondered if Grace had gone potty by herself, but when I got up she said she peed her bed. I went into her room and discovered that she had gotten up in the middle of the night, got a towel out of the bathroom, put it on her bed where there was a little wet spot and went back to sleep. She never woke me up, just did it all on her own. Such a goof.

Bob has been busy with work. He has been traveling more than normal the last few weeks. It's good that work is busy, but we miss him when he is gone. I have been busy with bowling the last few weekends, the city and state tournaments. I am looking forward to the national tournament in May, and yes, it may have something to do with being childless for a few days. ;)

I am going to make a concerted effort to update my blog more. I just took a bunch of cute pictures of the girls yesterday and I will try to get them on this week. Also, spring is kind of coming so hopefully we will be able to get out and do more blog worthy things (playing inside day after day gets kind of old!) I hope you all have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by. Also, I do have a review/giveaway for mama cloth coming up so check back!
