Saturday March 29, 2014

After the chick cake was picked up we decided to have a fun family day. We went to pei way and had some delicious Chinese food. The girls even did great with chop stick!  After there we went to check out trader joes. I love that store!  Decent prices for healthy food, I'm in!  Wee have been trying to make healthier choices so this store had something for all of us!  After there we went and bought Easter dresses and new church shoes for the girls. They keep asking if they can wear their dresses early but I told them they had to wait!  Brooklyn wasn't to happy about that but wore something else without a fuss!  I am very excited for Easter Sunday this year. Momma and daddy are also coming down for it!  I lov anytime I can spend with them. 

Chick chicks boom cake

March 21st

March 21st World Down Syndrome day. The girls wore blue and yellow in support of our friends and their lovely children. After school we went to the park to celebrate with cupcakes and hang out with our friends. It is also Rio Smith's birthday. We went out to eat at La Carretta. We had such a good time. I'm so lucky to have such a great friend like her!

Picture day at school

I had imagined for picture day at school my girls to be dressed in beautiful church dresses with their hair fixed to perfection. Then I came back into reality and we picked out nice polo shirts and skirts. I'm glad we made that change. They were still cute as a button but both of them came home a mess from plays at recess!

Happy Valentines day!

Valentines this year was on a Friday. The girls got to wear "valentine" shirts to school. Brooklyn also wanted Curley hair. They were both just so cute. The day went on as usual. Trent got the girls from school and after work I finally was able to go grocery shopping. I am trying to not overdue it with my back but I am defiantly getting back to normal. Sol after grocery shopping we decided to eat at voodoo BBQ. We really like their food but we don't eat there very often. It was a nice quiet night. I feel like we should show our love more then just on valentines day. Maybe have it a few times a year!!!!

I feel like I know pain.  I have my babies naturally for goodness sakes. But I have never EVER felt anything like this back pain before. I woke up last Wednesday just fine. But Wednesday night I could hardly walk!  Not sure what I did but it was to my lower back.  Thursday I went to the dr. On the very short walk from my car to the door I was literally crying I hurt so bad. Dr said I had pulled a muscle that was so swollen it was causing a nerve to be pinched!  I was prescribed ibrofin and some sort of muscle relaxer. By Saturday I was still in excruciating pain. Barely able to move, not being able to do anything!  I feel a little better now. I can go to work and do things around the house this week but I am still in a crazy amount of pain. Apparently it can take weeks to heal!  Doesn't my body know I don't have weeks?  I am already irritated I couldn't finish my advocare challenge and now I have to wait weeks to get back to a normal gym schedule?  I know I am kind of complaining and everyone else has much worse then that going on but I just wanted to get that out there!

Cold weather

Here are some pictures from today 1/29. Our drive way is a big slab of ice. Also our streets ar completely frozen over!

Our House

Last night I talked to my grandma and she has never seen a picture of our house. This was from last Friday (1/18?) with the first round of cold weather. We also have a garage but these were taken from the inside window and the car so it's the best I have!  I was going to go outside and take on this morning but so far I'm just to warm to go out in the cold!  We didn't really get snow. It's just ice, but still pretty. Last Friday I ended up working, which was just misreable. We had to make a few trips to the auction. One of the trips I drove a car with no window, no heater, and no defrost!  By the time we made it my feet were so cold I could barely walk!  I spent five out of six work hours driving in the weather and fighting traffic!  Fun, not so much. Yesterday I went to work but we shut it down around 12:45. Still got some time in. This cold weather isn't very nice to those that are hourly!  Trent also made it home a few minutes after me. It has been nice spending some extra time with the family and just being home. Today we are iced in so we are defitnally not going anywhere!  We have some board games planned and maybe chilie for supper. I am really looking forward to today!

Cold weather

OSometime in the very beginning of January it got really really cold. Our pipes froze. Trent went to his moms to shower for work. I heated bottled water on the stove top to wash my hair. Luckily the girls weren't here. I went to work but kept coming home to check everything. Luckily the pipes didn't bust and by supper we had water. The crazy thing is I had the water dripping when we went to bed!  The second night I defiantly had the water dripping harder!  Lesson learned!  The picture underneath is our neighbors tree!

Girls day with mawmaw

On January 2nd Mrs. Murl took the girls to get their nails polished and to take them to run some errands. They loved getting their nails polished. Mrs. Murl said she had left them under the nail dryer a little longer then nessacary to keep them from wandering the shop. She said when she left them get up Sophia exclaimed "Thank God!"  Apparently she wasn't to fond of the nail dryer!
