Christmas Picture At last

I broke down and took them to Sears. I was pretty pleased. I'll put the other ones up when I get a chance. About the outfits. It looks familiar? Yes, Emma is wearing the one she wore last year. Yes, I am cheap. Last year I ordered it big so she could wear it two years in a roll. When I found out I was pregnant with a girl, I e-mailed the lady that made it and asked her if she could make me one in 3-6 months with a "C" on it. She had record of exactly what she made me and matched them up perfectly. If you are looking for a special outfit, I highly recommend her. She does little jon jons for boys too. There is a link to her site at the bottom of my page (Lillifee Boutique). She does an awesome job!

Be back soon with more pictures.

I'm Dreaming of a Warm Christmas

This is the view out my back door this morning. The big fir tree is in our next door neighbors yard. I thought it looked like Christmas. School is closed today and that is fine with me seeing as it's 9 degrees outside.

I will get a Christmas picture of the girls if I'm ever able to get them both well at the same time. We've been fighting what is most popularly known as "the crud" for about a month now. Both of my girls have had this yucky stuff coming out of their eyes, it would go away for a while and then they'd seem to have a relapse. Well, Emma was put on antibiotics a couple of weeks ago. I thought Chloe was going to kick it but we woke up yesterday morning with her eyes matted together. So, now Chloe gets here turn... I was trying to avoid putting her on antibiotics but, here we go.. My mom and dad are flying in this weekend so I'm hoping she gets to feeling better soon. Btw, prayers for things to warm up and the snow to melt off would be great since we will be making a trip to Columbus to get them and that's a good two and a half hours away.

I already knew it but it is definitely official that Emma is the best big sister ever. Chloe spits up quite a bit anyway but since she's got all of this mucus stuff, it's been particularly bad lately. Well, this morning, she spit up on Emma. Emma's face to be exact. Emma said, "yuck" and froze until I could wipe her up then she looked at Chloe and said, "poor baby". Now, here's where my sickness comes in... What was I doing? Well, I did clean them up but the whole time, I was laughing my head off. I guess that since I get spit up on so regularly, I think it's hilarious when it happens to someone else. I remember laughing at the one particular time when Emma was a baby when Adam had the bright idea to lift her right over his face right after she had eaten. But it doesn't stop at that.. I laugh when he hurts himself too. I know.. it's horrible but I can't help it. I'm also remembering the time that Adam ran full speed into our sliding glass door. I'm laughing now just thinking about it. But that day, I was rolling on the floor. Adam's mom was here and she at least checked to make sure he was ok before she started laughing. I know, I'm cruel and heartless. But seriously, I didn't have to check to know he's hard headed. Anyway, sorry about the randomness. No sleep, sick baby.

Love from Above,

PS: Note to Adam... I will continue to post embarrassing stories about you until you decide to comment :). I love you

Going Green!

I have some news I just had to share! Ok, we've gradually switched our whole house over to the economy friendly lightbulbs. You know the little slinky looking ones. Well, I just got an electric bill. Drum roll please..... $42.51. That is the first time I've ever had one under $80. I compared it to this time last year. Last year in October, we used 1126 KWH, this year--551 KWH. The average daily cost last year was $2.54. This year, $1.29. As far as I can tell, that is the only thing we've changed. Our heat is gas so it isn't that. In fact, with having an additional person in the house, I think I'm running more. Two night lights, two noise makers running at night, a video monitor and, for the last month, we've been running humidifiers in all of our rooms. Plus, my dryer is running constantly because of all the clothes I'm washing. Walmart now has Great Value brand of these lightbulbs. I think they probably pay for themselves in a month! Do something for the environment and your wallet!
