Long time....

Sorry I have taken a break from the blogging world. My job has gotten really hectic lately and blogging just hasn't been on the top of my list lately. Everyone is doing great here! One of my most recent events was a tricycle race that we sponsored. Brynn and Sadie entered and I am proud to say that Brynn WON! (Okay, so one of the girls was 18months old, the other barely could ride a tricycle and Sadie quit but who cares about the details!!!)



After the race, Papa Steve treated us to a special day at Primetime complete miniature golf, arcade games, and BBQ lunch! It was really a fun day for us!!

And for kicks, we just had to get this picture. Hey, you never know!!!






It feels good to be back!!

Who is this girl???

This morning Brynn proudly tells me that today she is going to be a "big helper." "What's the catch?" was my first thought, but then again she is only 3 so helping mom is actually fun right now. She asks if she can make my bed. Ummm.....sure.....have at it! Here is her finished product (pretty dang good for a 3 year old!)



After that, she tells me that she wants to make her own bed. Okay, seriously.....who snuck in her room last night and switched her with a new and improved Brynn. "Ummm....I guess?!?!" Is my reply. So, we got the comforter the wrong way but still she did pretty dang good!!!



So is she really just a good helper or....

A) My cleaning OCDness has rubbed off on her
B) She wants the new Strawberry Shortcake movie that is out
C) She has a big secret that she doesn't know how to break to me
D) All of these 'manners' books and movies have finally paid off

I don't know what is going on with her, but I sure like it. Now if only I could teach her how to do laundry, take the trash out, load and unload the dishwasher......we would be golden around here!!

PS: I didn't have time to photoshop these and lighten them up-sorry they are so dark.

Conversation with Sadie

Here was my conversation with Sadie a minute ago as I am changing her diaper:

MB: Sadie, you really need to start pee-peeing in the potty

S: Like in my diaper?

MB: Like the pee-pee in your diaper, only in the potty.

S: You so silly mommy!

MB: Why am I silly?

S: I no pee-pee in potty. I pee-pee in diaper!

MB: But don't you want to be a big girl?

S: NO



Yup.....she's my hard-headed one.

My camera battery has suddenly died and won't recharge....so sorry about no pictures.
