For Thanksgiving we were so THANKful to get to go to my cousin, Traci's cabin in Strawberry! The kids had so much fun needing their coats! It was a very fun trip!
With A LOT of help, I made my first quilt! Paul and I have wanted a quilt for our bed for a while. He made me the mirror above our bed a couple years ago and this year I made him a quilt to match! I'd like to take the credit but I couldn't have done this alone to save my life! Thank you, helper friends!

We think maybe I was pregnant with twins but the other twin is stuck in Parker's sign of it coming out anytime soon! We love our chubby girl! She pulled her shirt up like this...clothes are just too tight!

Joe Joe

Joe is BOY 100%. He plays hard and is so so sweet. He loves his sister, Parker! Every morning when he hears her wake up he runs in to ask us if he can go talk to her. If we say yes, he BURSTS into her room and they laugh together forever. He allows us to keep sleeping...good boy Joe. He is right at that point where a nap benefits his mood greatly but if he does nap for even a minute he is impossible to get to bed at night. I love my kids!

The one and only Christmas photo of 2009

This is my Sydney. This face says it all. But just in case it doesn't say it, I'll explain. She is 6 1/2 but she thinks she is 18 and knows everything! She is sassy and very opinionated! She hates the color purple and hates her hair the way I did it in this photo. She is beautiful and so loving when she wants to be and she is a great big Parker. This attitude on her face and Joe kinda clash. This is our ONLY Christmas picture...I was not snappy this year. Got some cute video, though! I love this girl and adore spending one on one time with her. She is so bright and special to me.

Thanks Heidi Stanford...and some rambling

My blog is so cute and I haven't posted or even seen my own blog since August of 2009! I think Heidi probably knows my password better than I do! She is my friend and she has my permission to change my blog background...why would someone take their time to make my blog so cute when I'm never one here? Because she loves me. Why does she love me is the bigger question?? Heidi, you are a great friend and I love you so much! Thank you for making my dusty old out-dated blog look like a beautiful fun well written one! I know it isn't easy to make a cute blog and it takes time. Thank you so much! Heidi and I have a play date this wed and I am so excited! I don't know who reads my blog but if you happen to read it, you can stop reading this post, it is very uniteresting. If I'm being honest, I don't read anyone's blog. Not anyone's. I feeel bad about that but I just don't. I'd like to but...I don't. Today, out of morbid curiousity, I checked Ted Kimball Mac Jack Marshall Xander's blog (a nut job that used to be my brother...)and for the first time in 5 months looked at other blogs. If, I get on the computer, I look at (don't read) my email then check out facebook. That consumes me and I forget I even have a blog. I'm rambling but who knows if this will ever meet another humans eye. I kinda hope it doesn't cause I might offend some people with my "nut job" comment and unlike that nut job, I care about other people and their feelings. So, Mom, if you ever read this, I'm sorry to vent about "him". My bashing is actually mild for how I'm feeling...ANYWAY...Thanks again to Heidi Stanford and her creativity for making my words looks so cute! Sorry about the little tangent I took there in the middle. Hopefully I will post more often and more interesting. But if I don' least it is cute.
