The joys of parenting

I decided I would share some of the things that go on at our house on a day to day basis. John and I find them rather amusing. Here is a list of some of the things that my little people have been up to recently: (First, I must preface this by giving a warning that we are potty training, so the following information is a little interesting--if you know what I mean) 1. Using fly swatters as spoons while they cook up something in the toilet (that day, Grace made it to the toilet 3 times--and all before 9am! Wow, go Grace!) 2. Savannah and Grace competing fiercely in screaming contests that seem to always take place in the car. 3. Grace devouring a chocoate popsicle because it was the only thing that made her stop crying 4. Savannah getting fixed up for the day--with Mom's shoes and make-up. Have you ever seen mascara look so good? 5. This is one of my favorites--A few nights ago, in a attempt to bathe the girls I got them both in the tub and began washing them up when Savannah looks up at me with a strange look and I realize there is a bright yellow stream making its way from her to the other end of the tub. So, of course, I got grace out and drained the tub. While the water was draining, I look over, only to see little Grace standing in a puddle of her own! And then, to top it off, when I reach for her to put her back in the tub, she moves, slips in the puddle and falls on the floor. Finally, after 2 accidents and 2 baths everyone was clean and ready for bed! Aren't kids great? Never a dull moment! :)


These last few months have been so much fun. Now that we live closer, we have had a chance to have family and friends visit and stay with us. It has been such a nice change of pace from Texas where we only got visitors a few times a year. The girls love seeing their many grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles. Here are some pictures from the last few months. Thanks, everyone, for coming to visit. For those who haven't come yet, you're missing out. haha!
