Happy Halloween

I cannot believe that tomorrow is already Halloween! This year has just flown by. The girls are so excited & I am excited to see them enjoy tomorrow too!

This week we went to Boo at the Zoo and the girls had a blast. They went on rides & dined on mini donuts. Both were adorable in their costumes - Sadie is a mouse this year & Skylar is a black cat.

Tonight we had Grandma & Grandpa Siemens over & Tummy Mummy Janae to carve pumpkins. The girls had a blast. Skylar did an Angry Bird pumpkin & Sadie helped me with a Kitty Cat. Naturally they dined on way too many candies so bed time was very interesting tonite. I can only imagine what tomorrow night will be like!

Overall an amazing few days of family fun. I am blessed!

Last night Sadie had a hard time at bedtime. She was out of sorts & cried quite a bit which is very rare for her at bedtime. Generally she just gets in bed asks for books & says goodnight. But I actually love the nights she needs me. I love to cuddle with her & stroke her hair & have her so close & still. Now that she is so active these moments are few & far between. I often wonder if moms who haven't had a struggle to have children cherish these moments as much as I do. I could sit there all night and hold her.

After leaving Sadies room I crawled into bed with Skylar and had some girl chat with her. Things are so much more interesting when you are whispering them in bed aren't they? I love to snuggle up with her & rub her back while she tells me all about the cute boy in school and every little detail about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's visit to Winnipeg. I didn't have those early year snuggles so I want to make sure I get as many as I can now while she lets me. No doubt the older she gets the less we will snuggle but I am gonna fight hard to keep them going as long as I can!

Boo at the Zoo tonight - Pics to come!

Here is a pic of the girls on Sadie's birthday.  Aren't they adorable?

Waaaaaaaaaaaay too long!

Okay - I honestly cannot believe it has been this long since my last post! Shame on me. Well my girls are now one year older. Sadie is now 2 and Skylar is now 9. Time goes way too fast! Both are thriving & keeping me & D'Arcy very busy. I am loving that Sadie can now talk (although she goes on & on & on & on lately). Skylar is now so comfortable in her own skin that I cannot begin to say how happy that makes me. She is just being a little girl & letting us worry about "life" and that is so awesome!

I am gonna post two photo's of the girls. One of Sadie's new "thing" she loves to take anything with a smooth texture & rub it all over her face. Paint, pudding, whip topping, gravy - you name it. On this one posted D'Arcy & Sky & I were goofing around in the kitchen while Sadie finished off her pudding & Skylar turned to face Sadie & her eyes popped out of her head. We laughed so hard - I couldn't even tell Sadie was under all that chocolate pudding.

Well I will post again soon. Want to get back into writing. Don't abandon me - I will keep writing.
