Post 96 ~ Bella

I just had to share a picture of Baby Bella, my niece!

She is 6 months and weighs 25 lbs (WOW! Anna is 3y and 26lbs) and is sooo cute. Two months and I can hug and cuddle her and kiss those pudgy cheeks!

post 95 ~ New Cut

Voter turn out was low, but no matter. I used the gift card my Parents gave me to get my hair done, nothing too dramatic. I'm likin it! The streak that Mike helped put in really compliment the cut...or the cut compliments the streaks either way it works!

I miss my long hair but at this stage in my life, I can't take care of it like it needs. Maybe in a few years when the girls are more capable taking care of them selves...and their own hair, lol!

Man, my appetite has been in high gear for a week now, I've been eating everything in sight! Mike says he's the same way...maybe it's the weather or time of year or stress or ..... that we are hungry! We are trying to be more active too....maybe thats what it is.

No cooking Peer Mentor thing today, the parenting group tomorrow is pot luck, still means I have to cook but at least it's in my own kitchen. Think I'll make herb baking powder biscuits (with soy milk) and let the other parents make the main courses.

After getting my hair done and after we had done all our running around in K-town we went to visit my Parents. We had a nice visit, the Girls were a bit grumpy but Mike and I worked together and got them calmed down. After dinner we adults were talking and joking about several topics, when we were talking about relationships, my Dad said that Mike is good for me, every time he is around me I am smiling, Mike makes me happy, Dad knew that when we first started to date, but didn't let it show. That was a big thing for me to hear, my Dad and Mike didn't have the best relationship the first few years of our dating so it was good to know that after 12 years My Dad actually likes Mike...he may have liked him long before this but it was good for me to finally know for sure!

I'm Happy Happy!!

Vote about my hair!

I want/need to do something with my hair. It's at that awkward stage. We're planning on going to K-town this Sunday and I'm hoping to get my hair done too.My hair grows so fast that I like to change it up. So I'm giving my public the option of input! Lucky you! You can vote on the side bar <-- or/and you can leave me a comment.

Mondays and Tuesdays have been way too busy lately, I'm glad it's only for a week or two more.

We have a date for Anna's Surgery! April 23 is the day she is going under the knife to have her Lump removed, we are all excited but anxious.... I hope she isn't put in too much pain. While at Children's Hospital, during the week before the surgery, we will have all of Anna's yearly appointments/tests for Galactosemia.

I think we are all finally over our colds, a few sniffles here and there but nothing to worry about. Since Mike and I have been taking the "No body's Perfect" course our family has been more peacefully, even the girls seem to be fighting less...but that could be cuz they have been spending less time together, that might change in March during spring break.

That's it for now, VOTE! I'll post pic of the new do on Monday (if I get anything done)

Post 93 ~ Monday...

Yup it's Monday, another week started with the alarm going off at 6:30 am for Mike to get up then a phone at 8:30 am from a friend reminding me I have to get up and feed my children.... ugg, I don't do mornings well.

My headaches come and go, still nothing too bad, but now I have gas pains to go with them....Wonder if I should see the Doc....but then Anna hasn't been feeling well either these past few days, I wonder if we both have a stomach flu.....yuck, I hope not

This afternoon I'm going to that Peer Mentor thing cooking club thing, this week we are making ribs, spaghetti and boiled potatoes.....I didn't choose the menu...Deb did. Last week the soup and sushi was a big hit! I'm so glad since I was in charge of it!

We put some rabbits together to mate yesterday, they will be separated later today. Pinky was put with Baby Bear and Cinnamon was put with Joe, hopefully in a months time we will have cute little bunnies....and then sell them during Easter.... that is, as long as the mothers don't eat them like other times, or leave them on the cage floor to die.... We have not had the best of luck with these females, It makes me want to get rid of them all, hopefully this time will be better.

That's it for now, I hope to post more pictures soon.

92 ~ an off day

I don't HAVE to do anything today if I don't want to.... well nothing scheduled except playgroup for Anna.

I woke up with a headache, around my temples and the base of my neck. It's been two hours and it hasn't gone away yet, I've had cereal with milk and lots of water... so it's not from hunger or dehydration. I took some tylenol, so hopefully that will do the trick.

My house looks like a toy store has exploded... I have no energy to make the girls clean up their toys, I'll just wait till Ivy goes to school then I'll start putting away things... hopefully Anna with join me.

Mike and I got the girls a little tikes Camera ($30) for X-mas, here are some pictures they have taken with it:
