First Day of 2015


The beauty of living where we do in AZ is getting to choose when you want to go see snow, and not have to deal with living in frigid winters. So when we heard Payson { hour and a half} north of us got 10" we knew we had to take a little trip and enjoy it for a day. I think we kicked off 2015 on a very happy note :)



















Hope you alll have a happy, healthy New year!!

Christmas morning.

 I hope you had the most wonderful day celebrating yesterday. We are basking in the afterglow of Christmas... and that translates to . . . stepping around the mess of new toys scattered everywhere, ignoring the piled up dishes, and enjoying the fact that we don’t have to be anywhere but here. Feeling very blessed to have experienced a magical morning yesterday with our little ones.



 Here is a recap video

Halloween 2014

We spent the entire evening trick-or-treating . 
Sienna had a blast was even allowed to eat some of her candy this year and stay out passed her bed time :) she woke up this morning asking if she can go trick or treating again tonight.




































I hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween!
Have a lovely weekend.

The random thoughts post

I currently have 2 sleeping children, dinner made, house semi picked up and a few minutes to myself...boy does it feel nice.

I have so many posts in my drafts that I want to finish and post (including Emilia's birth story) can't there be more hours in the day?

We have hit a rough patch with Emilia in pretty much every aspect...sleeping, eating, overall behavior (I'll post more about it another time) but we have taken her to the chiropractor and turns out the poor babe has been in pain. Her neck and upper back got pretty beat up during her extremely long and traumatic birth. 

Sienna is so excited for Halloween, its all she talks about....Friday cant come soon enough. Yesterday she picks up her costume and says "thank you for my costume mommy, its so cool"


I'm so thankful for good friends & neighbors, the other day I mentioned to my neighbor that I need to get working on Siennas costume but don't know where to even begin as its just a pile of fabric....the next day, she's at my door with her sewing machine in hand....2 hours later....Sienna's mermaid costume is done.

My niece turned 5 last week! and it reminded me I need to savor every second with my girls...because it really does fly by. We made her a cake, Sienna was sure to let everyone know SHE made the cake all by herself ;) she loves her big cousin!

 

I'm always amazed when I meet women shorter than me, at 4'11 its quite rare that I get to look down not up when speaking to someone other than a child. Who knew? ;) 

I have started Christmas shopping this week, I refuse to go when everyone goes & deal with lines...crowds and just pure maddmadnes soo I have been slowing getting it done now. Sienna requested that Santa brings her a doll that "eats and poops" I should just hand her Emilia, thats pretty much all she does these days.

The show "Lost" blows all shows out of the water in my opinion (yeah I know I'm about 10 years late watching it) but we started just last month and are at the last season already...its a good thing I didnt watch when it was new and on TV because I wouldnt be able to handle waiting a week to see what happens next after each episode ends...Thanks to netflix we don't have to and some nights watch till we cant keep our eyes open anymore.


Speaking of 'eyes open' .....

Emilia starts her day before the birds even start chirping...thank goodness for coffee.

Pumpkin Patch 2014

Though the weather wasnt very Fall-like this past weekend (in the 80s),
 We decided to venture out to the pumpkin patch with the girls.

Emilia slept in the stroller the whole time, which gave me a chance to snap some pics of sassy Sienna -who by the way is looking so grown up lately its killing me!
