I have been blessed

And I feel like I’ve found my way
I thank God for all I’ve been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones
That love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed

Today's Adventures

I know I'm WAAAY behind in blogging (and yes, that's probably THE understatement of the year) but I really wanted to write this down before I forgot!!

While the kiddos were supposed to be down for naps,  I checked on them and they were on top of the changing table without their diapers and Aiden has diaper cream all over his hair, face, and clothes. He loves to put everything in his hair -- I guess he thinks it's hair gel! Once I got that cleaned up and everyone re-diapered, I checked on them again. Addi fell asleep by the door and Aiden has his top half covered with a blanket, but not his bottom half. Plus he had taken his diaper off again so he was totally naked! I knew that would not be a happy ending if I just left him, so I had to sneak in without hitting Addi with the door and then put a diaper on him. Luckily they both stayed asleep!!!

Adventures with A&A

We've been meeting up with a mommy friend and her little boy every week. Last week we hit up the local lake that has a great walking trail through the woods.  All the kiddos LOVED exploring. We didn't make it too far down the trail, but it was great to be outside and exploring.  The kiddos love their friend M.  Here's some pictures from our day!

Bumpin' Up and Down...

In our little green wagon.  Aiden and Addison got a green wagon for their birthday last year from Great Grandpa.  They still LOVE it. Now they can get it out themselves and pull it around the house!  Here's some cute shots I got of them the other day.

Kid's Castle

Last Wednesday, I took Aiden & Addison to Kid's Castle with some of the other moms and tots from MOPS!  I wasn't sure how the kids would like it, because Aiden can be REALLY shy in new situations.  However, the kids did AWESOME!!!! Especially Aiden!! He had no problems going and starting to play! I was so PROUD of them!!!!


Just another day...

WOW!  We've had a crazy morning. I was painting Addi's toes and Aiden went to grab the bottle I told him no and put the bottle back down. I have to use both hands to paint Addi's toes because she's such a wiggle worm. Well as I was doing that, Aiden grabbed the bottle of polish again and leaned over to blow on Addi's toes to help dry them and he spilled on my favorite pair of jeans. I put some nail polish remover on them and am soaking them in oxy clean. I put them in their rooms so I could clean up. When I went in there they both had their diapers off and as soon as the door opened they shot outta there FAST!! So I had to capture the two little streekers!! Just another day in paradise right?!
