So what will you do today? I challenge you to do something, anything thoughtful and totally unexpected. Since I've been sick and pretty much on house arrest, per the main man's instructions; I've been doing a lot of blog reading. I've read so many stories of families that are being torn apart by various ailments. One story in particular has tugged at my heart strings. Cora's story is so hard to process. It amazes me how a family can remain so positive in the midst of so much heartache. Hug your kids a little tighter today just cause you can, and don't forget that thoughtful act.
I've been so sick that I haven't done much more that lay on the couch for the last 3 weeks. I am feeling much better now though. Its amazing what the right antibiotics and cough syrup can do for you. We have a busy week ahead of us though. Starting tomorrow with St. Patrick's Day! I don't know why but I've always loved that holiday. It will be our first day back to mile cat since I got sick so it will be great to see our friends again. Then Sunday happens to be a very special day. My Baby Turns 4! I can't believe that she's 4 already. She's so eager to grow up too. She is constantly stealing my lip gloss and insists that she wear a dress every day. Where does the time go. I took some pictures of her roller skating this weekend.
A few months ago when I found out that the "Mothers Cookies" company had closed their doors I was so sad because we love their frosted animal cookies. I remember getting them when I was a kid and my kids love them too so it was very sad to see that they would no longer be on the shelves. But Nabisco has attempted to recreate them and well they aren't exactly the same they are very close in taste and texture. Check your local grocery store for them.
Last but not least I have been meaning to do a give away to "hopefully" boost my blog hits and comments. So here goes. In honor of Kylee's 4th birthday. I will be giving away a monogrammed Camera Strap cover. Like the ones pictured below. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment between now and Sunday at midnight and I will have Kylee draw the winner and I'll announce it on Monday! Good luck!
I snapped these today. Kylee looked so Cute playing with her Barbie's. She has really gotten into them lately and Emma wanted a picture with the flower that her daddy got her for Valentines day. And yes Corinna that is one of your slip dresses that Emma is wearing. They still wear them all the time. Oh and Kylee and Emma got their hair cut yesterday too.
Last Saturday I was brushing Emma's teeth and I noticed that there was a hole in one. I figured that she somehow had lost a filling so I made an appointment with the dentist and took her in on Tuesday. Wow! What an ordeal that turned out to be. It wasn't a missing filling; she had at some point fallen and broke the tooth and it had rotted. So they had to do a crown. She wouldn't sit still and I had Kylee with me so I had to go out to the waiting room. As soon as I walked out the door Em went into total freak out mode so I called my MIL and she came and sat with Kylee in the waiting room so that I could be with Emma. They ended up having to put her in the little papoose thing. Oh it was horrible. She is doing much better now though. She let me take these pictures of what she calls her new "sparkle" tooth.
A few months back I bought the girls these really cute dressers and a shelf that were used but just needed a coat of paint to make them perfect to match the girls bed. Well I was making dinner the other day and Rick and I hear this horrifying crash in the girls room. We go flying in there to find this.
Happy Valentines Day! We did Cassi's Party, which was a ton of fun! I made Mrs. Shuck this awesome Treat that looked like a sundae but was made of M&M's and Salt water taffy. They turned out so cute so we made one for our friend Katrina too.
Didn't these Valentines turn out cute??

Kylee enjoying her portion of the valentine spred.
"Its Valentines Day Charlie Brown."
I snapped this shot of Cassi's Cute Penguin
When I stepped outside of Cassi's classroom on Friday I looked across the yard and I could actually see the mountains! I think it's been months since I've seen that view. So I loaded the girls up and took them up to my favorite "thinking" spot. The mountains looked gorgeous from there.
Last weekend was the annual Sportsman and RV show. We go every year and the kids always have a blast. The girls get to fish in a big swimming pool. lol... We always see all kinds of stuff unfortunately this year rick was manning the camera so the shots of the girls with their fish didn't come out but I did get some other shots of the day.
Emma was so excited about her fish
Kylee got Baby Belle from Disneyland. She LOVES this doll and we took these pictures the other day so I though I'd post them for you. She's also wearing her princess dress that Nana Valerie got her for Christmas.
