What do you do when it’s hot outside and you need to keep the troops entertained??? Go outside and play in the sprinkler!!! And Garen got out his fancy lenses to capture a few quick photos. I think they turned out pretty cool, don’t you?!?
It took me a long time to break down and try dry shampoo, mostly because I always assumed it only worked for blondes. As I was getting my hospital bag ready for delivering the twins, one of the things I kept seeing on many new moms lists was dry shampoo. So I figured it wasContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown”
I have excellent babysitters/nannies that help us out. And, with four kids and both of us traveling for work, boy, do we need it?!? When I tell people that we have great sitters they typically ask me how I found them. It’s hard to find good help from word-of-mouth. If you hear about someone who’sContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Care.com for Finding Childcare”
In case you need some entertainment this chilly evening, this should do the trick. So glad Garen caught this. Future superstars, right?!?
Today was a great day with the girls. They love to “pay kitten” (aka Play Kitchen). They’re very creative and I only had to retrieve one chewed up plastic French fry from Kate’s mouth.

I should apologize to those whoContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: ezpz Happy Mat – One-piece silicone placemat + plate”

Kate’s is blondish, shorter, straight as a board, and a little thicker. We needed to clean up Kate’s mullet (for a goodContinue reading “Tips for First Haircuts for Two Year Old Twins”
Halloween is a big holiday in our household- it’s Clara and Kate’s birthday. Today they turn two. I sound like a broken record every single birthday for the kids but, man, how time flies! It seems like just yesterday that this was happening! Or this: And now, here we are: Two Two-Year-Olds. Double, Double Trouble.Continue reading “Happy (Second) Birthday/Halloween!!!”
For years my kiddos wore mostly Children’s Place and Gymboree clothes. And they still wear a lot of it because we can occasionally get really good deals. Oh, and because Mammy buys them a ton of beautiful clothes from there. I’m always thankful for whatever we’re given. Gifted clothes are the best clothes. But there areContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Garanimals Play Clothes”
We were happy to be able to take all four kiddos to Pioneer Reunion (Clay County’s big yearly festivities). There’s multiple parades and a great rodeo as well. Boot fever struck our house as we got ready to head out there and realized only one of the twins would have a pair of boots. HeavenContinue reading “Photo Friday: Puddle Jumping”
