lots of changes......

My two kiddos can finally take a bath together! This is huge for me considering I give my kids a bath every day! I blame my Mom- she bathed us everyday so now its just habit, although, I am pretty sure this is why my kids are allergic to many laundry detergents, shampoo,s lotions and sunscreens, why they also have to have Aquaphore everyday and Mia looks like a Dalmatian. Oh well at least they are clean!!!!!!!!

He is really starting to love his sissy-which works well for me cause she can practically take care of him herself!Smiling like Auntie Sissy.......I just love this picture- I finally documented how she has been crossing her feet since she was a baby.She's a crafter-we did watercolor forever the other night, a girl after my own heart!Learning to trace Oh and this guy can grab his toes!Mia loves her some Auntie Sissy time-they went to the store like this and came back with Ice Cream, PB cookies and chocolate.

I'm in danger....................

Of losing my family to my parents. Due to our lack of power we are staying with them. They have it too good here and they never want to leave. Which might not be a bad thing for me. I think I could get used to living alone again. In other news this beast can sit up for about ten minutes. We are pretty sure Mia couldn't do this til' she was 6 months.

Winter storm 2012 da da dun.............

Round here we have been having some extreme weather causing all sorts of trouble! We have had snow which cancels school which means we get to play with the Nenna's. Which also means Ryan can't work which means I get to sleep in yippee! Which also means the power goes out and hurricane Hildebrand has moved from the Fords to the G-rents house where Ryan Mia and little Ryan don't ever want to leave. We have power now but my family wants to stay at my parents house. We are lucky to have a warm place to stay where we are all so loved and fed way TOO well!
Here is a little craft I did with the Nenna's its super easy and the loved it. All I did was fill spray bottles with very strong colored water and told the girls to make me some beautiful art work, and they delivered!

The Tsuchikawa's had cabin fever so Ryan rescued them and Taylor and Mia just love them some Da-exa and Makenna.They would never come in from the snow if it was up to them....What do you do in a power outage? Hunker down and snugle to keep warm.We also made colored ice blocks to play with in the snow, I just froze colored water in my tupperware then gave them to the girls to build and play with in the snow.LR's first time having snow at his house! Yup, he's a fan.
