Random Pictures

In a moment of boredom, I decided that Gigi and Claire needed to have some girlie time with their Mommy. I pulled out the flat-iron, and decided to see if the girls could get any cuter (as if!). These are the results...

I was also finally able to get the kids' bedrooms mostly decorated. I was beginning to feel like the poor kids would be in plain rooms forever, since I know there won't be much energy to spare once the new baby arrives. Now my girls are sleeping in surroundings that are pretty just like they are! There are still a few things left to do, such as pulling out the anchors that the previous owners left in the wall and patching the small holes, but that can wait until a more convenient time- maybe in a few months when we're not suffering from sleep deprivation!

I'm dreaming of...

In years past, we have either never found it necessary to decorate to exterior of our home, or when we wanted to, it was too darn difficult to get to the top of the house. Now that we have moved to a smaller street and most of our neighbors take pride in decorating for every holiday or season, we thought, "why not!" Here is our first ever attempt at showing the world our Christmas spirit, and we kind of like the way it turned out.

A day of firsts

Yesterday was a record day of firsts for Claire. We had been holding off on cutting her hair, because the curls were just too pretty to shear off, but with the way the sides were growing longer than the back, it was starting to look kind of weird. So, I bit the bullet and trimmed the sides to match the back. She now has a curly bob that is so cute!


While were in the process of making ourselves pretty, I decided it was time for Claire's first pedicure as well. She was totally delighted by her pretty pink toes!
