GOODBYE 2008.....

As you all know I haven't been the best blogger.. but a new year calls for new blogs!!! I have picked a few things that were REALLY fun and exciting for us as a family!! Bit I have some BIG news that is absolutely thrilling to my little family....
She came to me one day and said " momma I need candy!" and Isaid "welll what do you need to do to get a piece of candy?" and her answer was " I go pee-pee and poopy on the potty!" I nswered "yes! if you do that you can have some candy!" A few minutes later i hear "I DID!!!!" andi looked and sure enough there was pee in the potty!! I am so proud of my liile girl! she has only had a few acciedents andnow does it all by herself with no help from me! She LOVES her big girl panties and really loves telling people what a big girl she is! Did i mention how cute her little butt looks in those panties?!?! SUPER CUTE!!!!!!

The proud girl on her potty!
And Kilah dancing in Big girl panties!!!!
I need to let you all know that this was not my first attempt to get rid of diapers....I got all excited and pumped to potty train them both together......BAD IDEA!!!! I spent all day in the bathroom floor and as soon as i would get them up they would pee! Kilah was tring but Brodie had no interest! It was a very sad stressful day for soon as Blake came home i needed a good cry and a little time out of the bathroom! It was the very first time i ever felt defeated by my twins!!! So the next day i decided to put the potty up and talk about it little more and wait and see when they were ready! Well it worked! for Kilah at least! I am waiting on Brodie and Talking to him alot about it and probably gonna try to get him out of diapers in the next month!!!
But man only having 1 kid in diapers is crazy!! 74 diapers last me over a week! Its AMAZING!!!


I absolutely used to LOVE going to Disney on Ice as a kids, and this year the show was about The Incredible, but Mickey and Minnie and there crew were there too! As soon as i heard Mickey and Minnie were there I knew I had my chance and was gonna take them to see it! Blake and I have never taken them to a movie or anything that requires them to sit still for a long time,so this was a first.....


Kilah and Daddy...who is paying better attention?!

Mommy and Brodie!

As you can see they were in total AWWWW! they sat with me most of the time like this and watched the whole thing! It was a little scary at times but they never flinched! I was a great family outing and Iam sooo Glad we did it! Next time a movie!!


Even though it Is a few months late!I love Halloween! I used to get all dressed up and go ALL OUT for Halloween! But since I had the twins I have moved all of my focus to the twins costumes!!! I love to dress them in matching costumes,and will as long as they let me!!!!!! As you can see this year they were....


cute huh?!?

I would like to thank our buddy Mrs Abigail for making out costumes i think they turned out PERFECT!!! The twins LOVED them! They were a huge hit while Trick or Treating!

Can you feel the love?!

There is never a shortness of hugs and kisses between these too!

Pebbles herself!

Bamm -Bamm getting his pose on!!

Every year the Denton family has a pumkin carving party at my sister Jessicas house, Thank you Jess for the invite!!! Here are a few pics of that night! The twins love all of the Denton kids and so do I! I have to say that those children all 18 (i think) are so patient and sweet with the babies in the family.... especially mine! It is really nice to be around them because i am not always worring about where they are and what they are doing!

Thank you to all the Denton kids out there!

With there Mr potato head pumpkins they made!

Brodie making S'mores..he sat out there like this forever!!!
