NOT ME!! Monday

I most certainly did not water down my girls milk the other night so that we would have enough for in the morning so that I would not have to go out and buy some more.

I most certainly did not close the door to the computer room and tell my girls that mommy was working on important business so I could check facebook and my blogs.

I most certainly did not cut in line at the grocery store (in front of TWO elderly ladies) and race back to the preschool to pick up the oldest... thinking that it was Wednesday and school let out at 11:20 when in all reality it was only Tuesday and they got out at 11:30

What have you not done?

to bunk or not to bunk

So the time is coming closer when I am going to move Brylen from the nursery to a big girl room. Granted I still have some time..... the plan is not to move her until her second birthday (December 7th) but I like to plan and try to have it all laid out before I begin. So the thought has come up weather or not to bunk the girls together. I have talked it over with Brinley and she is for the idea but what if shes not after we have Brylen all moved in. I love the idea of them sharing a room and having the closeness and consoling that could come out of sharing a room. However, I do want to be on my toes and move them to separate rooms before the time comes that they are arguing over personal space. So I think that they could share a room for a couple or so years. If we do decide on rooming them together the issue of beds comes up. So I have been looking a bunk beds and I am really liking them so far, or do I go with a single queen bed? Or do I scratch the idea all together and put them in separate rooms. The computer room has long been designated as Brylens room but it could become an extra bedroom for a couple of years...... and the nursery could become a sitting/computer room....... : )
So what to do? What are yalls thoughts?

My Brown BLACK BLUE GREEN eyed girl


Now its time for the ugly bruises to come out we are for sure going to see the rainbow in these!

Today has been just gorgeous the girls have been playing outside most of the day. Brylens new word is bird and will point at the sky when she says it.... I wasn't able to catch her doing so but did get her talking to this 'bird' in the flower beds.

We absolutely LOVE our Goldendoodle Quinn. He is great dog for the girls and puts up with so much!

Brinley and the ground had a fight and the ground won.........

Yesterday Brinley was riding and had a bad fall, she is going to be fine no broken bones just needs time to heal. She is pretty sore and badly bruised but as soon as she woke up this morning she was begging me to go riding. Nothing stops this girl. The swelling has gone down a lot in the last 24 hours so we are thankful for that. Below are some of the pictures I have taken of her.


I have a new food addiction...........


I love it.... I cant get enough of it and the best thing is that the girls love it to!!!!!!
