I Made a Boo-Boo....

Hi Everyone!

In my haste to update the blog, I forgot to copy and paste my BlogRoll before that widget was deleted. Yikes!!

So here's your chance!

If you want to be super cool and awesome, give me your blog address and I'll add you to my NEW, AMAZING BlogRoll!! :)

Just kidding. You are all super cool anyway.

::but I want to blog-stalk you:: heeheehee

So leave it in the comments section or on the new ChatBox. (Or do both! I'm anxious to see how this ChatBox thing works!)

I know I could just go to the blogs I somehow remember, look at their lists, copy those blogs down, add them to my list and blah blah blah. But why go to all that trouble when you guys could do the work for me?? ; )

Thanks for helping me correct my mistake!

Have a great day!


New Year=New Blog
(Even though 2009 is not so new anymore. Where did January go? Can anyone tell me???)

The girls are another year older and it's about time to update the blog background and header. I've been working on this for a year off and on, but just haven't gotten it right--until now! SO---I'm unveiling the "new" blog! Although, don't get your heart set on anything fantastic. I am just really slow. :/

I've decided to try and update the header with more recent pics as the year goes on...maybe with the change of seasons. No promises, because blogging has to take a back seat to my crazy life more often than not. But I'm gonna try!

I've also started a personal blog "I'm No Expert" so please check that whenever you feel you have the time! It will be my crafty (or not so crafty-depending on the situation), creative and other miscellaneous postings blog. (I will still post about our kids and our family on this blog but everything els…

Chatty Kathys

I started this post back in October. Here is what I wrote back then:

"It's almost like someone just flipped a switch. ---Literally--- yesterday my girls were not very verbal and used a series of annoying 'grunts' and 'whines' and all manner of chalkboard-scratching-like noises. But all of the sudden--they are saying words! Not just 'mama' and 'dada' and 'night-night'. Things like 'blanket' (bin-tet or binty), 'box', 'open' (ope-ee), 'stuck' and other seriously cute things, some of which we had no idea they even knew. Jordyn is still quite behind and just doesn't know how to form her words yet, but she does try. Avery's voice is the absolute most adorable little tiny high-pitched pixie voice. Even though she says 'ope-ee' a bazillion times, over and over again, the sound she makes is so cute we just have to laugh. My favorite thing is when they say each others' names. Or rather, *attempt…

The Festivities

n. pl. fes·tiv·i·ties
1. A joyous feast, holiday, or celebration; a festival.
2. The pleasure, joy, and gaiety of a festival or celebration.
3. festivities The proceedings or events of a festival.
1. happy celebration: a spirit of joy and festivity

That pretty much sums up our holidays perfectly!

It all started with an all day Christmas Eve cheesyLifetime movie marathon (for me); then once the girls were in bed for the night, I changed into my warm 'star' fleece pj's, curled up with a blanket and enjoyed a glass of (milk-diluted) eggnog complete with whipped cream and nutmeg sprinkled on top. Tony and I watched a couple more Christmas movies together and I just looked at him and said "This is the perfect Christmas Eve." I was so content and happy. And it was so good to feel that way. We didn't have to GO anywhere and we didn't have to DO anything. Sometimes, especially around the 'Holidays', we get overwhelmed with what we feel we have
