Our Christmas Photos!

Here are a couple of the "action" pics we had taken at Portrait Innovations! LOL!...
This one is my sweet angel escaping out of my arms...not wanting to sit up straight! Bad Hannah! HA HA!! This one is deer in headlights...neither of the twins smiled the entire session!
Escaping as quick as their little feet would take them!
Sarah was the first to escape... nice pic of all 3 sitting down...not smiling but at least sitting! :)

Well, after Hannah pitched a fit and i bribed her with anything and everything i could...we got a couple of good pics. None of all 3 looking at the camera smiling...but what are you gonna do? That's life with 3 kidos! Right? While we were waiting for our pics we decided to make our way over the james avery b/c i wanted to but Hannah a bracelet for xmas. SO, we were in there paying etc. when a lady walked in with 2 little boys. TWINS, who were just getting ready to turn 2. I saw my life in a year...and boy it was frightening! Those two cute little boys were ALL OVER THE PLACE! YIKES! Paul kept saying...that's going to be you in a year! I know i know...o dear what have i gotten myself into! LOL!!!

Anyway on another note...i'm going to attach some pics from our xmas pics.

A busy weekend ahead!

Everytime i turned around Sam was leaning over looking at something...HMM... And then i look at her and she has puke all over her face! yuck! Perhaps becuase she was looking down so long she got a bit of motion sickness...LOL!
I tried and tried to get all 3 looking at the same time...just didn't work! Darn!!!

First of all i'd like to ask for prayers for that poor little girl that was murdered by her mother and step father in Galveston. It's soo sad and i just can't seem to understand why these people do this. Why don't these people just go drop their kids off somewhere if they don't want them. Their are TONS of people out there that would love to have a child and can't that would love a baby of their own. I can't believe the news is just reporting...she is also pregnant again! WHAT IN THE WORLD! I just don't believe it. I guess the good part is that that poor little girl will never really know her mother and hopefully she'll be shielded on what happened and someone great will be able to enjoy that poor baby! I'm just speechless about the whole thing and my heart goes out for that grandmother who was taking care of baby grace before her mother came down to houston/galveston and met this freak of nature/child murder!

On a happier note..we have alot to do this weekend and i'm excited! We are going to do family portraits today. Then Sat we are going to see Santa at my Moms of Multiples childrens social(funny right...childrens social?!). Sat night i'm going to the Adult MOMS social which will be fun. Then sunday we're decorating for xmas(that is, if it doesn't rain)! YAHOO! This year will be fun fun fun...because now that the girls are walking we can just let them play and run around in the front yard while we decorate the front of the house! O, it's so nice that they are walking!!!

On another note...we just received the choo choo wagon( today! We already took the girls out for a walk today! They love it(even though Sam puked in her choo choo..YEP they are STILL SPITTING UP SOME!!). We love it too because you can strap them down since Sarah has always tried to jump out when we'd take her for a walk in the ATW with the bumpos inside of it. It's also nice because we don't have to worry about how hannah is going to get around on our walk...sometimes she'll want to ride her bike and half way through decide she'd done and we're stuck pulling it or dragging it. UGH!

Today i'm venturing out for the FIRST TIME EVER WITH THREE KIDDOS ALL BY MYSELF! Please wish me some luck... I bought Hannah some shoes the other day for our famiy portraits today(size 7, and they looked really big) and they are way way to small for her. SO, i have to go up to target to get her some black patent leather shoes for today. YIKES! I've told her like 10xs over and over she better behave and not act up and we're just walking in, getting shoes and walking out! O dear i hope she's good!

Think that's it for now...i'll load some of the family pics today and some pics of the choo choo wagon ride too!

Happy Friday!

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO PAPA & MAMA BENCH for buying the choo choo wagon for the girls...they LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Happy Late 11 Month birthday!

I totally didn't realize that yesterday was the 26th and the girls 11 month birthday! I can't believe it's been THAT long since we brought them home. It sure doesn't seem like it. They have grown SOO much in the past 11 months and hit so many milestones. They have grown out of their "witching hours" and really been a joy to all our lives. We just love them soo much and i couldn't imagine our life without them. We love our house filled with noise and "talking". We love watching them grow before our eyes. I wanted to list all the milestones they've hit since they were born...just so i can remember what all they've done.

1. Sam has 7 teeth still and Sarah has 6

2. They've both mastered sitting up, crawling, and now walking

3. They eat any finger food you put in front of them and their favorites are pancakes, sweet potato chunks, french fries, green beans, white cheese Cheetos & graham crackers. They don't really like corn that much or anything small b/c they have issues holding the small things.

4. They play hard, fight hard and sometimes really love on each other.

5. They don't like to share even though they don't know any other way.

6. They always want the same toy even if it's a bowl out of the drawer.

7. They finally sleep from 730p-5aish.

8. They love to eat cheerios off the baking pan on the floor in the kitchen while we're cooking.

9. They LOVE TO EAT...such a change from Hannah

10. They are not big cuddlers anymore

I will add more as i think of them...

On another note...there are going to be a few exciting things happening in the next month that i'm really really looking forward to happening in our house.

First of all we're going to start transitioning them to milk around Dec 15th...i'm hoping we've bought our last gigantic Sams can of 33.00 formula. They start MDO at St. Rose after the first of the year. We get to switch their car seats around to front facing. We're going to be having a big birthday party for them Dec 29th! These are all so exciting to me! I just can't believe i made it through this first year with my sanity and only a few more grey hairs! LOL!

Hannah has also changed so much since the girls were born. She's helped a ton. She LOVES to help me with everything. She already helps me unload dishes, clear the table after we eat & brings me bibs when i need them. She's just such a big girl & we just love her soo much...even if she knows how to manipulate us! LOL!

Some great pics from today!

Here are a couple of cute pics from today.
Also, my mom & dad have a new addition to their family! An eight week old puppy my mom named Kelley! She is a mini schnauzer and just precious and so spunky!

Sarah eating dinner..the reason i really took these was b/c i cut their hair...talking about butchering some hair! Hannah could have cut it better than i did! LOL!
Sam's doesn't look SOO bad...a little longer..and a little straighter!
Hannah's messy buttery hands! YUCK!

Another cute pose...she's such a sweetie..when you don't make her mad and she goes and pees somewhere just to spite you like she did today when i wouldn't give her two snacks at once even though i knew she wouldn't eat both! Talking about terrible 3's!

This one is funny...everyonce in a while i give the girls cheerios on a baking sheet on the floor(i know it's like i'm feeding a dog) anyway it occupies them when i'm busy cooking in the kitchen. Anyway today i did this and the dogs were begging for food and tSarah ended up sitting in the middle of the baking sheet! TOO FUNNY!

Another one of Sarah sitting in the middle of the cookie sheet!
Sam sharing her cheerios...don't you love her hair cut! :)

A fit glimpse of sweet baby Kelley! She's soo cute!

Another one of mom and her new baby kelley! What a great xmas present we were able to get her this year!
Sam playing with Hannah and drinking out of her new bottle.
Sarah has really really CROOKED hair..there's just no way to fix it since i chopped it so short!
