Birthdays 2013

My girls both have birthdays in February.  The Littlest Girl's is first.

They get to choose their breakfast.  And sometimes their dinner.  She opted for cinnamon rolls and scrambled eggs.  (It was a school day, so they weren't homemade.)

She couldn't make up her mind if she wanted a unicorn cake or something from Brave.  So I found a horse cake pattern and bought a little Merida doll for a smaller cake.  (I was so lit on coffee and frosting I was quoting Brave lines at the top of my lungs for most of the day.)

My Littlest Girl is always grateful.  At least for a second.  
This was her favorite gift.  A My Little Pony castle.
Her expression was THE.BEST.

Something something horror movie.
Actually, this was Daddy after he had put the castle together and affixed all the stickers.
He needed some alone time.

A couple of weeks later, it was the Indian Princess' turn.
She opted for Monkey Bread.  And scrambled eggs.

Understanding the value of a gift card.

Trying on their animal hats together.
Afterwards, we had cheesecake.  Her favorite.

This has been the most used gift so far.  
They jump, hide toys, and watch TV on it.
I never knew there was so many uses for a mini-trampoline.
(Forgive the wandering table.  It's an Apples of Gold thing.)

My heart gets bigger every year for them.  As my hair gets grayer.
I am blessed.

Potential-- A Poem

I got a pair of jeans
In the mail
That are way too long.

And somewhere,
In the recesses of my mind,
I still think
That if I wait awhile,
I'll grow into them.

Well, hello there!

I'm sorry I haven't been here for awhile.  I really thought when the kiddos were in school I would have all this free time to do stuff like write, work out, cook, clean.  But I don't.  Well I do, but I apparently choose not to do these things.

Instead, I found a couple of jobs, a volunteer opportunity, and started a bible study.

In the meantime, my mother in law is moving out of town (sad), and I have two birthdays to plan for my little ones.  Most of you know they are 11.5 months apart, so February is a big month.  Along with Valentine's Day, various other birthdays, tax prep, and sometimes a nap, I am staying busy.

So, since I don't have anything creative to say, 
I'll just leave a picture of my cuties.
