Slightly, Wordless Wednesday

(Ms. K with her Uncle Neal)

Here's the slightly... =p
As expected mostly with the holidays I wont be able to post much till after Christmas, where I'm sure I'll have LOTS to post, pictures stories, etc.  Not to mention we just got home and found our basement to be flooded!  Yes, Merry Christmas to us. =D
Till then, I'll try and update, otherwise happy holidays to everyone! <3

Pick me up

So after a long day of getting nothing done and not getting out of the house till 3, then shopping and feeling like we missed something, upset I have yet to complete the hubs gifts, and accidentally pulling out Oakley's earring making her scream....I need a pick me up.  

I found it, as I was catching up on the blogs I regularly stalk. ;)  I found an old post from this Blogger who as well found laughter, smiles, and soft thoughts about this particular photographer- Stephanie Rausser

I think I've found my favorite photographer of all time.  I have seen some of the most beautiful, funny, touching photos on her site!  It's made my night. 
I hope it makes yours.  <3

Why I love this place..

we just phased!

Oh boy what a fun weekend it was!  Saturday was our day to hopefully get some shopping done, Mr. A's mom was nice enough to come watch the girls while we went out.  Unfortunately I was very unproductive!  
To put it into one word, Overwhelming.  Since the twins have been home I don't get out as much as usual, especially out shopping, without them even.
 Once we were finally out and about I couldn't get my mind to work properly, I think I can say I know what a 2 year old feels like in an Antique store.  Wide eyes, wanting to touch everything new and interesting.  Can't focus, can't stop to think twice.

Luckily I accomplished some but not as much as I hoped.

I'm a little bit of a geek 'cause I can be.  =D That is all. 

its amazing

Early this morning I watched Ra Ra (Oakley) as she lay on the couch twiddling her toes together, lift her hand up and admire it.  3 straight minutes of extending her fingers, each one at a time.  Making a fist, releasing.  Twirling her hand back and forth as if to wave to the air.  Pointing and stopping movement to see what has changed.  

It made me think how amazing it is that we are able to experience and learn new things.  Haha, I know I read a little

The other day while I was skimming through my NetFlix choices, as I usually do for some background noise, I came upon a show from National Geographic about China's Lost Girls.  I read the short description and thought it'd be interesting to watch.  I've always wondered how population control worked within China.

It basically followed several families who were going over to

I'll do it I swear!

So we are getting really close to Christmas now and I still haven't done any shopping!  :( Horrible I know!  It's OK though, I have a plan.....really I do. 

Anyway we are trying to think of some good first Christmas presents for the girls and are sort of coming up short.  I want to get them their first "teddy" but in the case I think it will be a cat and bunny which I found at one of those kiosks in the mall.  They were cute, soft, and everything you dream of when you think of having a stuffy as a kid.  (Lets just hope they are still there!) 
I don't know if any of you know this

Holidays and Family

As I sit here watching the twins roll around screeching and stealing each others toys, I've started to think how fun the holidays are going to be from here on out. Not that they haven't been fun my whole life!  I love the holidays!  Just NOW, we get to hide the eggs, play Santa (because the real one asked us to), argue that they have to go to bed RIGHT after the clock strikes 12 and they watch the ball drop, etc.

Christmas Cards

We figured we should make an effort and get some Christmas cards sent out this year.  So we took the time to get the girls dressed and take some photos.  Here are a few pictures of our attempts, before they got grumpy. :) ( I wont use the ones we chose for the card)

Happy Monday

It's the beginning again and everyone says "Hello"!

(Really wishing I had a prof camera...hmm maybe someday!)

Anyway, not much in store this week.  A WIC appointment for the girls on Thursday and a midnight release for a game tonight that we tend to be a little more into than usual during the winter months. :)  Maybe a little Christmas shopping, if we dare.

About time!....Now what?!

I finally did it! I've been holding out on getting the twins pictures done, since we missed the newborn stage and all, I was hoping to get them done when they were sitting up on their own. 

So a few months ago I bought a couple of outfits for fall/winter that I have yet to put them in:

1. Because they (the clothes) were too big.  
2. I wanted them to be special and used first for that day.


Even if you stay at home, which is work if you have kids, Fridays are the best! There is just this feeling of, "we get to relax on the weekend".  

Everyone is happy(usually)! Because we love Fridays!

As we prepare for the weekend, I'm going to hope to get a little more work done on the blog header I'm doing.  Crossing my fingers Ms. O's nose clears up.  Maybe even do a little cleaning....maybe. 

Our 5 Year Plan

In all honesty we have had a 5 year plan..for..a while! :)  But in the past year I think we've been able to actually start it. Most of this stuff could and will be worked on throughout all the years but I tried to put it through the years of when most likely things may be completed or what not.

Finding time

Finding time while having kids let alone twins/multiples can be..well hard. Specially finding time for yourself.  But I have a few things that have helped out for me:
(May be a little broken record like, but I cannot help but remind myself IT'S POSSIBLE TO FINE TIME!)
