I love how cute my girls are but
dang they look so grown up.
Too grown up for this momma.
Everyday I am reminded of how
fast they are growing up.
How much they are learning at school
and how quickly they are going to
be too big to cuddle.

A Hundred and TWO Dalmations

So the girls had a job a few weeks ago where
they had to go to shoot a
commercial/promo for Disneyland.

It was lots of fun.
The girls were dressed up as dalmatio
and posed with Cruela De'vil.

The girls were a little apprehensive to say the least.

They have seen 101 Dalmations

and are privy to Cruela's meanness.

At the beginning of shoot the

director came up to me and
said "mom, they look terrified".

I was like "uhhh, what do you expect

you dressed them up as dalmations

and are posing them with Cruela De'vil,
who wants to skin them and make a coat outta them,
give em a minute". Haha

They warmed up pretty quickly.

But I do
wish I had video or even pics
of my making a
fool of myself in order to
get the
girls to laugh and smile on cue.
I think we could win 'America's Funniest Home Videos'.
All in the name of show business..Before makeup
Charlotte in makeup
Addison in makeup
Charlotte in full affect.
'Texting' grandma while waiting to shoot their scene.
They got to watch the Main Street Parade
while waiting and Disneyland guests thought they
were part of the show.
Meeting Cruela De'vil.

It was torture shooting at Disneyland and
not being able to ride the rides.
We had to promise a trip in the really near future..
Anyone wanna tag along???

Halloween Town

I tried really hard to get the girls to be different from
each other this year but I had no luck.
We even bought two different outfits but Cinderella was it.
Once they set their minds there is no changing it these days.

My posers.
Miss America here we come.
With their friend Abigail between them at school.
Their whole class & Miss Linda.
How cute is Elmo??
The trick or treating gang.
With Kaitlyn and Kendall.
Running from house to house.
My urban Cinderellas.
Getting a ride home after a long night of candy hauling.
Hope everyone had an equally fun Halloween!!

He is dead asleep.
I don't see how this was possible but...
I swear he was out.
He was playing with the girls
I went to fold laundry and I came back to this.
I had to take a picture for proof.
When he woke up he was mad I didn't wake him
up so he could climb up on the couch to nap.

Back Off Mommies He's Mine


something I totally already know my hubster is
the talk of the preschool.
Last week was Addison's share day at school
and the hubster was more than happy to
have mommy buy the drinks, snacks and plan the easiest craft
volunteer his time.
It is no secret to anyone who knows us that hubster is a great
magnificent, hands on, better than the best dad.
In an effort to keep hubster's sanity, I
bought wooden Halloween masks for the
kids to color.
I guess this went over seemlessly according to
hubster and they had some extra time left over
so he decided to have a parade around the classroom.
The parade took place at the end of class
when all the mommies are lined up
huddled together talking crap about what so and so's mom was wearing
outside the window waiting to come inside.
So they all the mommies were witness
to the hubster in action.
I will be the first to admit
he is the whole package
handsome, stylish, hands on daddy,
if I do say so myself.
Hubster comes home and tells me
gloats with a grin from ear to ear
how the other moms kept coming up to him after
class and saying how amazing he is with the kids,
and how the teacher said he was better
than a lot of moms she has that volunteer.
It's a good thing I am comfortable that hubster loves

adores, cherishes, worships the ground I walk on
me or I might be a wee but jealous and dress hubster down
next time and send him with a craft that has his head spinning
while the kids run circles around him gluing
feathers and felt pieces to the back of his shirt.
I think next volunteer day
I will make sure hubster doesn't have
any clean laundry.
Just kidding...kind of.

Funny things my peanuts have said this week...

Talking on her pretend cell phone
(Mommy overhears)
Charlotte: Hi friend.

Charlotte: I know, that's so funny.
(apparently her friend is entertaining)
I have something so important to tell you.
My prince.......(long pause)...kissed me.

Seriously I just started laughing,
I could not help it.
I guess we may need to back off on
the princess movies LOL.

Driving down to Cousin Molly's game
Addison: Are we there yet?
Mommy: Almost
Addison: Good cuz I am getting a
headache from all this driving.

Driving to the grocery store
Addison: Mommy can we get some of those
yummy squeezey juice things?
Mommy: We will have to see when we get there.
(I use those as a ploy for good behavior at the store)
Charlotte: Addison sometimes we just don't have
money for that stuff.

We took the girls to our alma mater to
watch the homecoming football game.
I thought the crowning of the homecoming court
would be the biggest hit.
I was very wrong.
They could care less about the princesses.
However, the cheerleaders were another story.
My girls couldn't get enough of them.
And now we have two very loud, bouncy girls
carrying poms poms all over our house.

Palmdale Cheerleaders how do you feel?

I think she feels good.
What do you think?

To Baby or Not to Baby

That is the question...
Well in our house anyways.

A month ago I would have said not to baby without a doubt.
This week (and last week, shhhh) I have been having insane desires twinges of wanting another baby.
I think partly due to the fact that I am really starting to
realize how big my girls are getting.
I think about all the reasons not to have another baby
and they seem really selfish.
Which isn't completely a bad thing, I mean I am the one
who will be the most affected by another baby,
in the early stages at least.

Financially we can afford another baby,
and we certainly have enough love to share.
And we will have 2 very willing to smoother help
big sisters that have been asking for a little brother.
The hubby keeps nagging reminding me that I
am denying him a boy.
(Like there is a guarantee we will get a boy)
I still think about how incredibly painful awesome it would be to
actually get to experience labor and delivery.
I know crazy right.
I kinda felt jipped outta all that good stuff
stuff you really don't want captured on video.
It would be cool to have a big family
which in turn will give me more grandkids to spoil
in my golden girl years.


Then reality sets in and I am stabbed in the heart reminded
of my mommy insecurities.
I work,
outside the house.
And granted I have a cool schedule that allows me LOTS
of time off in the summer,
when I do work I am gone
Some days I feel like I am already not there enough with my girls.
I worry that if we add another baby/kid that
I will be spread even further.
I already seriously stress think about how we will manage sports,
school, homework, work and the girls
aren't even in kindergarten yet.
Add another peanut in the mix and I we
may implode.
Besides that my plants are finally starting to
grow back the leaves the girls pulled off
and ate when they were little.
I am not sure they can endure another baby's wrath.

I kinda feel like we are under a weird deadline too
which makes it even more stressful for this momma.
The girls will be 5 soon, so there will
be a minimum of 5 years between them
if we got pregnant right away.
Do we really wanna start all over now
just when the girls are becoming
self sufficient????

Then I start looking at my cuter than cute girls
and begin to imagine how adorable
a little Tony boy would be.
Would he have the same blonde curls as the girls
or darker thick hair like my handsome hubby?
And I secretly have another name for a little girl picked out
if we had another girl.
I think if I did decide to open the baby maker
back up I would have to have a guarantee of
my choice of names.
You think that would fly???

I was hoping that writing all this out for all of you me to see
would help me make this decision easier
but I don't feel any different than when I started...
all sorts of conflicted.

Funny Ph(F)rases Friday

Is back by popular demand...
(ok only one person asked)

While out shopping
Charlotte: Mommy I have to go pee pee.
Me: Ok let's go.
Charlotte: You're the smartest mommy
cuz you always know where the potty is.

It's good to be the smartest at something.

Driving in the car
Charlotte: Ewww Momma Tanner (the dog) tooted.
(starts to laugh)
Addison: It's not nice to laugh at Tanner when he toots.
He prolly had a tummy ache and now he feels better.

Good to know she cares about how people feel even dogs.

Packing up Stuff for Goodwill
Charlotte: Why are you putting my toys in that bag?
Me: These are the old toys you don't play with anymore, so
Mommy is giving them to Goodwill.
Charlotte: Who is Goodwill? Why do we have to give them
our stuff? (starting to cry)
Me: Goodwill collects toys and clothes that we don't need
anymore and gives them to people that
don't have enough money to
buy new clothes and toys.
Charlotte: I don't wanna give away my old toys,
(fully crying now)
I don't have any money and
I just need my toys so bad Mommy.

Note to self. Pack up for Goodwill at nap time next time

So we took off Charlotte's training wheels to see if she
wanted to try and learn to ride without them.
Not that we are forcing pushing her to take her
training wheels off before she is ready.
But a little nudging can't hurt right???

I mean she looks happy.
Total deceiving smile on that girl.
As soon as daddy went in the garage to get another tool she took
it upon herself to put her training wheels back on.

Do Not Put...

I have been feeling completely un less than motivated lately.

At first I thought it was because I had gone back to work and was wasting using all my creative energy.

I find myself having these funny ideas for posts at times when I can’t get them down and when I do have the time to sit down in front of my computer I go blank.

I know, you must be wondering how could a mom of such crazy cute twins ever run out of funny things to blog about. Shocking I know.

It’s definitely not lack of material. Some days I can’t believe the things that come out of the girls never ending sound machines mouths.

I really wanna be better about posting. The girls are getting so big and my whole reason to start blogging was to journal our day to day mayhem life.

I mean seriously how can I not find something to say about pictures like this.

If my girls were small enough I would have shoved placed them gently into that bag just for a photo op. I have been known to do such things.

Back to School

School started back up for the girls.
They have a new class at a new facility with a new teacher.
I was a little (ok A LOT) nervous about how this would go.
Then end of last year didn't go so well.
The girls started crying every time we would leave
just like the beginning of the year.
It was unpleasant to say the least.

But I guess 3 months makes a big difference
in the life of 4 year old.
They LOVE school.
They LOVE their backpacks.
And their teacher.
And their new friends.

Mommy cried when i dropped you off but
it only lasted a minute because I was so happy
that you were smiling and waving goodbye
as you ran off to join your new friends on the carpet.

I took the girls shopping for a first day outfit.
This is what they picked out.
So cute.
New backpacks.
Walking into their classroom.
Name tags.
Kinda self explanatory.
Again, haha.
Apparently they fought over whose backpack was whose
according to their teacher.
So this super saavy mommy sewed
(and by sewed I mean ironed on)
their first initial onto their backpacks.
Problem solved!

You are growing up so fast.
I still cannot believe you are going to be 5 on your next birthday.
That is amazing to me.
I still see little babies when I think about you but you really
are becoming big girls.
My little ladies.
