New Neighbors!





























Last weeks weather brought more than thunder storms and wind, we also got some new neighbors! These really cute ducks have been calling our street home for the last couple of days. It sure makes our walks in the wagon more entertaining. Olivia LOVES her wagon!!!!!! Juliana is a fan, but sometimes gets tired of it and wants to ride on mommy! I won't lie - I love it too! Who can resist that smile and the giggle that goes along with it?

The Famous Red Outfit







This was just for fun. My Godmother Jeannie gave this red outfit to me when I was a baby and my wonderful mother saved it. So when Juliana was almost 1 we took a picture of her with it and then one with Olivia. Please tell my you see some resemblance! And of course, Livi has to be on the move. I tried over and over to get her to sit, but I got all action shots.

Nose Blowing Success

I don't really know how this is possible, but it's true! My baby Olivia at only 12 months old is officially blowing her nose! Yes, you heard correctly - blowing her nose. She's been really congested and stuffy, so all of a sudden at dinner today she pinched her nose and tried to blow out through it. It looked at first like she was just being silly and she kept doing it and we kept laughing. So after awhile it dawned on me, this little turkey is trying to blow her nose. So I put a tissue on her nose and told her to blow and sure enough she did! I don't how she learned it. Possibly because she spent a lot of Spring Break with Marisa and she is very kleenex happy or maybe she's been watching all the times that I ever so delicately blow my nose. Who "nose" but it's a great thing!

Garage Sale Extravaganza




So this weekend we had a huge garage sale EXTRAVAGANZA!!!! We did great and best of all had lots of fun with friends and got rid of a lot of crap! Although we had lots of great sales people, the Sales award has to go to Olivia for providing the best in customer service and doing whatever it takes to close the sale. As you can see, she even went so far as to climb in the cage to demonstrate how well it can contain a crazy little monkey! Go Livi - Make that sale!!!

My First Blog!!!!!!!!!

Okay gang - this is my first ever blog. I've never claimed to be a writer or the least bit creative, so if you plan to read this blog please don't come with high expectations. I basically would like to chronicle all the fun and cute things that my amazing daughters do on a daily basis. So here goes:

So, this week we were on spring break. What should have been a very relaxing week for us has been nothing but go go go! On Tuesday, Juliana had a 24 hour Video EEG scheduled. She was such a trooper for the most part but about 11 hours into it, she had enough and we decided to home. So we made it home around 2:30 am. I had about 4 quality hours of sleep when the little angels decided to get up. So the next night I was absolutely ready for some good Zzzz's when Olivia decided to tape a megaphone to her lips and scream bloody murder all night. So I got up with her twice, then Roger took a turn or two. So Roger is finally succeeding at rocking her when our dog/coyote Casey decides she is going to howl at the moon. So after about 5 minutes of howling, I scream "SHUT UP CASEY!!!!" and of course I wake up Olivia. . . . again!!!!!! So I go get her and trip over the garage sale catastropy that was in my living room. Needless to say it was a rough night, so when Juliana woke up again at 7am I was less than thrilled. So as I'm taking her to bed with me I started mocking her saying, "oh poor Juliana crying like a little baby, boo hoo hoo" when all of sudden she starts the most contagious belly laugh. So I kept mocking her and she kept laughing. . . . all into the next day. So here is a video of my little girl "laughing at herself". What a gal!
