Wordful Wednesday

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday,
only WITH words.
It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter,
but in a good way.

Sigh...We brought Ms. Grenier a home made pencil
flower holder
There are very few times that I think my girls
look identical,
This is one of those times :)

Where did the time go?
How are my babies in Kinder???!!!???
They really do love it though.
4 thumbs up from these two!!

Head on over to Angie's Circus for more WW.

Pep Talks

For the sake of future embarassment I will refrain from assigning a name to said
child in this conversation.
One of our girls is quite tooty.
She has been known to toot in any and all situations.
Dinner table, nighttime prayers you name it.
Daddy thinks she just toots when she gets squeezed,
but no one is squeezing her under the dinner table.

With Kindergarten starting up I decided
that we needed to talk about the right and wrong time to toot.
I tried to tell her that kids in her class may tease her
if they hear her tooting in class, blah blah blah.
I thought I got my point across,
but seriously,
is this really a pep talk parents have before school starts?
At the end of the conversations said girl tooted her loudest toot to date
and hysterical giggles insued from all parties involved.
Maybe not the best way to make a point.
Here's to a rootin' tootin' first year of school!!

This makes me happy!!

This picture just makes me smile!

I love my Momma and my aunt.
And my girls do too!!

T-Ball Time

We have some serious heavy hitters on our hands.
T-ball was super fun for like the first 30 minutes of every game,
then all they wanted was the snack.
I guess it's a really good thing T-ball games only last 55 minutes.

The girls did very well for never holding a bat or glove.
And they improved so much by the end of season.
All 4 bases were order!!
Hopefully they want to play again next year.
Daddy really enjoyed coaching.
Charlotte at bat
Addison at bat
Baseball ready2,4,6,8 who do we appreciate???

Catching Up! ...BIG time!!

So I wished my girls a happy birthday but I didn't
post pics of their party.
I have such a fun time planning my girls parties.
I like to go all out.
I mean I only get one party for two kids.
Double the fun!!

The girls were and still are ALL about pink!
So we had a pink sweet treat party.
The girls were so excited to have all their friends from school
there to celebrate.

Homemade birthday banner!
Pink sweet treat table

Saying thank you to all the friends and family!!

I really wished I would have taken more pictures.
There were so many fun pink details.
Better luck next year!

My sweet 5 year olds...
5 months ago!

My hair and I have always struggled with one another.
Growing up I hated my orange hair.
The names I was called were enough to send a young girl
into the bathroom with a pair of clippers.
I'm sure you can imagine.
My mom wouldn't let me color my hair
so what does any girl do when she moves away to college?
Dyes, dyes, dyes that orange hair every color but orange.
I will admit I went a lil crazy in college with my hair.
Short, long, dark, blonde, you name it.
At one point I even had yarn weaved in it, don't ask me why...LOL

I still have a love hate relationship with my hair.
I was just trying to figure out how many different colors and cuts I have had
just since the girls have been born.
It was pretty insane.
And after all is said and done I am striving to reach
that perfect shade of...

wait for it...

Well copper to be exact.
Follow my journey that leads me back to my roots,
haha roots, get it :)

8 weeks pregnant and by far the most crazy.
Blonde and the darkest brown ever, totally natural :)
Trying to weave back in a more natural color.
That only lasted a few months and we are back to dark.
Then we add in a lil red to the dark brown.
I guess that didn't suit my fancy cuz 2 months later I was this
crazy dark color.
And another 2 months I was heading back towards
a more natural color. poor hair.
Then chop and bleach.
Then it just gets blonder and blonder.
And shorter, it was chopped all up the back.
Horrible picture but bay far my favorite cut and color for a while :)
Ohhh and the red comes back!
Very red!
The first appearance of the orange.
Growing out the bob.
Guess I wasn't happy with the red anymore and
opted back to brown.
And then bangs!
Muted more light strawberry blonde
but the bangs remain...
6 months later and still bangs...
I think we have achieved the exact shade of copper
and I think I will keep the bangs for at least a few more months.

What do you think?
Is this your favorite cut and color?

I am surprised my girls don't have an issue
with who is my mommy, I never looked the same for very long :)
