a new trick

She's teaching herself to walk, it's quite interesting to witness. I love the look of pride and joy she gets on her face when she makes those little legs do what she wants.

merry christmas to me! and you too...

I bought myself a flip video recorder for Christmas. It's digital or something - basically an idiot proof way to record home videos. So now I'll get to put up video snippets of the girls for you to see! Remind me not to complain about things - I've been whining about the state of the house and my kitchen. I just got back from a girls weekend and this is how I found my kitchen, it's in both videos. I suppose a hobbled together kitchen with no stove was better than no kitchen! I also need to learn to not talk to myself while using it!

Not sure if she's saying hey or all hail juju but this is her version of a wave. And you'd better darn well respond in kind.

Thanksgiving '09

I keep rewriting this in me head and there is just no good way to describe how this years day was tinged with sadness but a wnderful holiday too. Our hearts ached for family that we missed and family that we never even got to know but at the same time Grandma's legacy wouldn't let me not be thankful for all that we've been blessed with. It was a lovely fall day and we enjoyed a delicious dinner with Mimi and Papa. The drive down to their house was a relaxing break from the disaster that is our house and as always the girls had a blast outside with the puppers and got to do cool things (I never know exactly what they're up too) with their beloved Uncle Josh. The sweet potatoes were the favorite of both Juju and Rosie too who kept eating the marshmallows off the top and exclaiming " mmm these sweet potato's are soo good"!

"I'm pinky pie and this is candy cane " ...."so go to my website ..... dot com"

Part of back seat dialogue heard coming home from church.
It was incredibly funny and we don't want to forget. I so wish I'd had a recorder to get it all.
I think pinky pie and candy cane are my little ponies .... the funniest part was the dot com because that was the whole web site name. Maybe you just had to be there?

Seriously, snow?

In Huntsville? And it's not even really winter. We let Juliana touch it and she cried. Of course I took a picture but I can't decide if it's funny or just mean.
Oh and all my northern family, please stop laughing now. It's white so it counts.
