Baby It's Cold Outside!!

So it finally decided to get cold outside and I couldn't be happier....I absolutely love cold weather! We got ice, sleet and a little bit of snow, which meant no pre-school for Kiley, we spent the day cuddling by the fire, drinking "hot chocolate milk", making tents and playing in the snow...when daddy got home from work!

Kiley and I made snow ice cream and it was delicious, but my suspicious husband wouldn't even taste it! Lily wanted to play in the snow as well but since she has just started crawling that was out of the question....those little chubby legs would have froze! I got some cute pics that I am definitely going to post tonite...I PROMISE!

Today things are back to normal, Kiley went to school and Lily and I went to my bible study. We went to my moms for lunch, a weekly tradition....although Kiley would prefer it be a daily tradition...she LOVES mammie!! The girls are now resting....Kiley on the couch with her movie and Lily fast asleep in her room!! Kiley hasn't taken a nap in about a year....I have given up on trying, it just isn't worth the fight! Besides, she is 4 now and like she tells me, "mom, four year old girls don't need naps"...what a little stinker!

I guess that is about it, nothing too interesting to post about. I will get some pics up later tonite!

Keep Lily in your prayers, she is starting to get congested again and once it starts it always ends in a bad lung infection....often resulting in a stay in the fun! I am so ready for my sweet baby to stay well!

Weekend Getaway!

My husband left on Friday to go skiing with his brother so the girls and I packed up and headed to my parents house!! My parents were so sweet to let us spend the weekend with them...I know that having their grandbabies at their house is so fun for them and I appreciate the help. My mom still spoils me, just like she did before I became a wife and mommy...I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it!! My parents cooked for us, took us shopping and took us out to dinner....we were queens for the weekend! Oh, and did I mention that I got to take a shower TWO consecutive days in a row....something that NEVER happens....and my mom did my laundry!

Well my husband is coming back tonite so it is back to reality for me....laundry, cleaning and cooking.....all things that I enjoy being able to do....but the break was nice! I took some super cute pics and will post them once I get home!

We have a chance of snow this week and I am so excited....I will be keeping my fingers crossed!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!

What a Beautiful Day!

I am having a hard time believing it is January, it feels more like April! It was so nice yesterday so the girls and I decided to venture out to the park with my good friend Krystin and her little boy. It was great to let Kiley run around and play....I'm pretty sure she hates being stuck in the house all winter! It was also nice for Lily and I to get out since we have to be super cautious about where Lily goes....I will get to that in a sec! So I took some pics but they are still on my camera and I'm not sure how to get them off....I will suck it up, ask my husband for help tonite and post some tomorrow!

About Lily....she has been sick for the majority of the last 5 months....mainly with lung infections. We have been in and out of the hospital and have seen several specialist. She has been diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease...I'm not sure exactly how to explain it but in order to keep it under control she is on steriods, using inhalers and doing breathing treatments...several times a day! She also has an immune system disorder...she doesn't produce enough immunities that fight viral and bacterial infections so if she is exposed to ANYTHING her little body can't fight it off and she gets sick! We have seen a specialist about this and they are still in the process of trying to get it under control but for now I have had to quit work to stay home with her and we are pretty much confined to our house. I did well with this for about 2 days! It is so hard not being able to get out and run errands or go to the store...I am still adjusting but I will do anything to keep my baby well! Please keep her in your prayers!

I hope everyone has a wonderful evening! Pics of the park adventure will be coming soon!

Is this normal??

As I have mentioned, I have a 4 year old little girl! I love her more than anything but sometimes she acts like she is 14....not 4! She is sassy, she talks back to me and has this attitude twice the size of her little body! I am just beside myself sometimes, I don't know where this has come from.

You can't see any attitude in this pic can you???

On the other hand, she can be the sweetest and most loving little girl! She has the biggest heart and is so passionate about life....which is one of the things I love about her the most!

I was putting her to bed last night and she asked me if I wanted to dream with her....she told me to close my eyes with her and we could dream together!! It's things like that that just melt my heart!

Baby Lily is still young to have an attitude but I am already convinced that she is going to give me a run for my money as well! My husband will tell you otherwise but I can already see a little temper that is cute now but may turn into a monster when she gets a little older!

Well, I am off to make beds, do laundry and try to keep the house in some sort of order!
Hope everyone has a good day!

Okay, so I am kinda new to this whole blogging thing but have recently become a full time stay at home mom and thought this would be fun.....we'll see how good I am at keeping it updated! I have a 4 year old and a 9 month old so I definitely have some fun things to write about but the problem is going to be finding the time to do it!

Anyways, I am having some issues making my blog page pretty! I will admit, I can be a computer idiot sometimes but for the time being I have too much pride to ask my husband for help so maybe someone on here can lend a helping hand...all I want is a cute that too much to ask???? Any advice would be much appreciated!

Anyone want to see a pic of my two cuties?? Well I will post one if I can figure it out but if there isn't one on here, sorry...I may need help with that too! The big one is Kiley and the itty bitty one is Lily, they are the most precious things to me!
