Pictures from Daddy's phone!

I have been slacking in the picture taking department and am really mad at myself right now. The girls are just so busy and I keep forgetting to pull out the camera. I vow to do better. We had a wonderful weekend with family and friends (and I didn't take a single picture!) Devin was off Friday and Saturday so spent lots of time with the girls. I was looking at the pictures on his phone last night, while watching the Bachelorette, and he took some cute ones! Side note- not really liking Ashely as the Bachelorette...kind of boring this season.

Wednesday morning in pictures

 The morning started off great with a long walk and trip to the park. Things got a little crazy though when we got home....
The girls stomped in some mud puddles so I had to strip them down to their diapers and get them semi-cleaned up.
Then I got them a snack and tried to get them to watch a few minutes of Baby Einstein while I got cleaned up. I came back into the living room to this....
 Fruity cheerios everywhere and I have no clue how they got stuck to their bottoms. That is until I started walking around and found them stuck all over my feet.
So I started to clean up the cheerio mess next. The girls were quietly playing in their room so I knew something was odd.

And then out came Kate in her doll stroller being pushed by Lily. Who knew it could hold 24 pounds?!

I went ahead and let them play their little game for about 20 minutes while I made their lunch because quite frankly I didn't have the energy to stop them. They ate their entire lunch consisting of a grill cheese and strawberries and went right to sleep at nap time. Looking forward to seeing what this afternoon brings. Girls, please be kind!

What's new?!?

First off...HAPPY BIRTHDAY Uncle Jeff!

We've had a really nice week and wanted to share what's been going on. Our new favorite routine after bath time is to wear our hooded towels over our heads and run around the house like super heroes. Very fun and makes the night entertaining. I was thinking I should invest in real capes, but why when they have several towels to choose from and are just as content?!

We also came up with a new hairdo this week. The pony tail! Kate and Lily's hair is just barely long enough to pull this off and it might very well be the cutest pony tail in the world! 

That's what's been going on over here....super heroes and pony tails. Great week!

Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is a very special day because not only is it Mother's Day, it's also my Dad's birthday!

I got to sleep in this morning while Devin took care of the girls. He then brought me breakfast from Einstein's and some beautiful roses. It was a great morning! After that we got ready and went to church. So far it's been an amazing day. Being a mother on Mother's Day is truly special and really helps you appreciate all the mothers in your life and how hard they have worked and sacrificed for you. I'm very thankful for my mother as well as my mother-in-law and all the other "motherly figures" in  my life. I also feel completely blessed and honored to be Kate and Lily's mommy. They are truly the most special girls in the world. How did I get so lucky?!?
