Merry Christmas!!!!

God bless everyone tonight and every night.
Merry Christmas from all of us to all of you!

Luke 2:15-16

When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the LORD has made known to us." And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Baby lying in a manger.

Second trip to see Santa

Chloe could not be convinced this time to see Santa.

First trip to see Santa

Princess 1 & Princess 2

We had pictures done of the girls at the end of October -- normally that would be very cold here in Michigan. However, it was about 68 degrees this day. We were lucky as we have an appointment at 10am. The night before I had to quickly plan out new outfits for the weather. In the end they smiled and that's all that matters.

Puppy love.....

More Halloween

See I am trying to catch up.

Chloe wore an adorable kitty-cat outfit to both dance classes (no pictures) and then did the whine and pout as she was suppose to put it on again for the Gymboree Halloween party. She wanted Zhen-Zhen to wear the kitty-cat outfit so she could be the princess. (haha -- there was no way Zhen-Zhen was going to give up her princess dress for anything.) Not wanting to disappoint my baby and not wanting my head to explode from the stress of not being able to get her ready for the party, I quickly went into plan-b mode. Or the stash of clothes for 2012 -- remember I shop WAY to much. Needless to say the kitty-cat outfit was ADORABLE on Chloe -- the mermaid-princess -- not so much -- plus it was at least a size too big. But Chloe got to be a princess like her sister so that's all that mattered to her. By the way, she's the one who wanted to be a kitty-cat.

Fall leaves

The girls couldn't wait for to go jumping in the leaves. But it didn't really live up to their expectations as they quickly got bored with it. However, having daddy blow leaves on them with the leave blower was loads of fun.


So it is now December and I haven't updated the blog since Halloween. And then for October that was the only blog post. So here is my list of excuses as to why that happened:

1. I'm lazy.
2. I don't get enough sleep.
3. I spend way too much time online shopping -- my 25 online orders to Gymboree just in the month of November is proof of that.
4. I started taking Saturday morning for myself -- 3 hours of alone time at the mall is wonderful for soul. Not so good on the wallet since that means more trips to the Gymboree store.
5. Two 3 year olds keep me really busy.
6. My 3 year olds have activities 3 nights a week and 2 times a week during the day.
7. The fairies don't clean my house or do my laundry while I'm sleeping.
8. My laptop died. Spent 1 week waiting for parts. Laptop still wasn't right. Ordered new laptop that took 2 weeks to arrive. This really cut into my computer time and online shopping abilities.
9. Coffee doesn't have the same kick as it use too.
10. But it all really comes back to number 1 -- I'm lazy. My plan is to update the blog with tons of posts this week. And then try to be less lazy.

And now I can't hit the publish post button on the new laptop. Have to run upstairs and try the other computer. Anyone have any ideas as to why? Figured this one out. IE9 and blogger don't work together. Nice. Not.
