Miss K mini photo shoot

This morning we did a mini photo shot with Kiley.  She actually wanted to do it and was cracking us up the entire time.  We of course were forced to call her princess Kiley if we wanted her attention ;) 


Playing coyly

Running around

Spinning and yelling "TA DA"

Being cute =)

Hair Cut

We almost made it 8 years before the whole 'so and so did/has/wants this so I have to have/do it too!  Today Miss E chopped off her hair and donated it to a good cause.  Now she looks even more grown up.....I'm not ready for this!

Easter Surprise

My husband the man of procasination tends to put everything off until the last possible moment.  Not that I blame him, when you only average 2 days off a month you would too.  After visiting the Dentist and waiting for his script to fill he eyed the one thing that I cannot resist.  It is my drug of choice (and no Al, it was not a burger.....this time), chocolate carmel eggs.  What you don't see is that there is another row of chocolate goodness right below it.  He did very well =)

Happy Valentines!  Yes, I am that annoying person(just ask my husband!).  I figure Valentines Day, Sweetest Day, & our Anniversary are 3 days out of 365 he can romance me with sweets, flowers, cards, or something along those lines.  Some people think what is the point when you can show it all year round.  In our house, when your spouse receives 2 days off a month its easy to forgot those things that a certain someone might like since days just blur together.  The girls and I are at home ALL day or at least it feels like it so for us it's easier to whip his favorite cookies or dinner.  My husband is an amazing provider for our family and is gone most days into the evening hours and goes to school on top of it.  So for him being 'romantic' is a bit more of a challenge since he doesn't know when he will get home or get another day off, etc.  Monday I jokingly told him, pick up my favorite cake and Breaking Dawn and I will be ecstatic.  After the kids went to bed he disappeared to his car and came back with those 2 items!  Since I guessed my gift I received them early =)  Perfect Valentines for me!

Remember the days when Friday nights meant you were going out for a date, possibly to dinner and a movie.  Now it consist of a crabby toddler waking up from nap and trying to get dinner into them as soon as possible.  Or pray daddy gets home fast with whatever he picked up to eat.  Then begins the bathtime fun while you wait and wait......and wait some more for each child to bathe which feels like an eternity.  Then after all that is over with you can work out.  Now our girls are insisting in working out with us.  We were doing P90X, I'm sure you've heard of that torture work out at least once.  It actually wasn't bad after awhile, you started to enjoy it, but then it becomes boring and their voices become annoying. You can only make fun of the voices so much before it becomes old.  So we(I) decided to try Insanity.  WHAT a nightmare, between dodging 1 kids feet and another running into me and the baby trying to knock you over w/ hugs and keep up, it's very interesting.
