I went to the festival of trees last week with Brad's family and I decided to bring the Kensi and Brinley. Almost all of them have a picture of a baby or person that died that the tree is in memory of, all of the sudden I look down at Kensi who is hugging me and she is bawling her little eyes out. I asked her what was wrong and she said she was so sad that all of these babies had to die! She is so sweet and has such a tender loving heart!

Ellie threw up in the night last week when I was at work, I talked to Brad at approx 2:30, he called me back at 3:30 and said he heard a door open and shut, so he got up and went in Kensi and Brinley's room. They were sitting on their little couch all dressed with hair done watching Spongebob! He asked what the heck they were doing and they said they were waiting to go to gramma's house! They had no idea it was the middle of the night! Silly girls!

I was getting after the older girls' recently for not keeping their room clean, and Ellie ran down to Brad and said "Mommy sho mad!"

The only way to get Ellie to take a nap is to tell her we will go "bye bye" when she wakes up, and she always says, "ok, go bye bye yater?"

Brinley has been so goofy lately, she does these funny little dance moves, and doesnt get embarrassed about it at all. She will totally have her daddy's personality.

We have a tiny little screwdriver that we use to unlock our bedroom doors, Ellie figured it out, so you see her all the time carrying it around sticking it in the doorknobs.

Berklee's favorite thing to do is to play in the pantry. We find syrup bottles, kyro syrup, peanut butter, anything on the low shelves all over the house.

Ellie's favorite song right now is 'We are never getting back together' by Taylor Swift. She will start singing it out of nowhere, and knows all of the words. Usually this happens in the grocery store.

Brinley: "Mom, your a good mom cuz some mom's treat their house like garbage..."

Ellie just loves Shyla, our very old dog. She always says to me, "Mommy, shyya my fwiend!"

I know there have been more funny things said and happening in this house so Ill have to update when I remember them....

Happy Halloween 2012

The week before Halloween we gave the girls their buckets, thats one of our traditions, they always get Halloween jammies, usually a movie or book and a fun treat. They were thrilled! We actually carved pumpkins this year too, the girls did most of them alone and they were very proud.

The day of we started out with Kensi's parade at school, she was Frankie Stein from Monster High, I think I counted another 30 in her school who were also Frankie. Then Brinley's parade in the afternoon. She was Dorothy and looked so cute. We had everyone over that night for chili and trick or treating. The girls got so much candy, Kensi counted out 95 pieces just out of her bucket. Ellie was a cute little witch and Berklee was a doo-wop girl. I love seeing my little 2 in hand me downs from the older 2, brings back great memories, plus they all look so much a like. I was sad to take down all my decor, Halloween is my all time favorite holiday and October is such a fun month! Until next year All Hallows Eve.......

15 months

My baby is almost 1.5 years old, cant believe it! She went to the Dr today for her check-up, she is just perfect! She weighs 21 lbs 3oz (30%) and is 30 inches (25%) still just a petite little thing. She had to get 3 shots, didnt cry for the 1st and only cried after the last 2 until I picked her up. Then she passed out in the car, poor baby! She is saying mama, dada, and jibberish. Thats about it. She loves to throw clothes all over the place out of the basket, but she actually puts them back in if you tell her to. She is great at the stairs, but gets nervous to come down, so if you put her on her tummy and turn her around shell fly down. She LOVES to throw a fit!! And she is great at it! She just throws her self down on the floor, carefully, and screams until you give her what she wants. Her favorite snack is milk, gram crackers, string cheese and bananas. She is getting up between 730-830 in the morning, sleeping for around 2.5 hrs in the afternoon, then bed at 8. She loves her sleep, I hope she always does. She loves to play patty cake, peek-a-boo and "you chase me" and she LOVES to be tickled! Whenever she hears the garage in the evening she just knows its Daddy and screams at the top of her lungs, she gets SO excited! I posted this 3 months late! woops! Love you baby girl! about
