Catching up

Wow so much time has passed since my last post. Well I guess that is just life for you... So I will get on with the real reason you stoped by today and just post a few recent pictures. Oh and by the way the kids are doing great and thriving if not driving me crazy... Just kidding, enjoy the pictures.
Miah has figured out the camera thing and now she does this little pose for mommy all the time!Getting these two to play together is not always easy, but they both love to build things so bonding over blocks it is.I am amazed at how quickly Miah is growing and changing... She has finally started to say a few words in the last week and every once in a while she will yell out TADA and stick her hands in the air.... SOOOOO CUTE!This is James studying. Yes with side walk chalk, what a great way to get the spelling words memorized, and apparently it works as he has made 100 or more on each test. GO JAMES!!Here we are at the state fair. We had a great time and Made sure that both kids got to do all the "MUST DO" things on our list. Miah was a real trooper for her first trip to the fair and even had a bite of a Fletcher's corny dog.

I Remember. My thoughts and prayers are with those who were there,or lost a loved one on 9/11. I stand with others on this day for our country ready. Ready to move forward with out forgetting the past, ready to say no to terrorism and most of all ready to live with out fear. I Remember.

Miah Gets a Kitchen

So I am loving the word FREE... My neighbor was getting rid of a Step 2 kitchen and I said I wanted it for Miah and how much did he want for it? Well his daughter had drawn on it with crayola and put stickers all over it , along with pen marks and silver nail polish so he said I could just have it. Ok sounds great to me and Miah would never even know the diffrence anyway. So Randy brought it home last night and I went to work this morning on it and let me tell you I just love a product that works. This thing look brand new out of the box and it was FREE!!! I used Mr. Clean Magic eraser on the crayon and pen marks and they came right out... got to love that. Then I used finger nail poslish on the silver marks, again they came right out. Now the stickers took just a little more time, but with goo gone they were no match for my elbow grease and are not just a distant memory as well. This toy I have seen on ebay and craigs list going for 40 to 60 dollars used and not even close to this condition, so let me just say a big Thank you Dave!!

Here is Miah loving her new Kitchen that was FREE!!

Time has flown by and Miah has been with us six months today!

The last six months have been more wonderful than I could ever discribe. I am one blessed mommy to know that this little girl is mine for a life time. Enjoy a look at the first six months with Miah.
