This is how Lilly says baby

The girls are at such a fun age, all day long they walk 
around talking in little garbled mumbo jumbo to each other
and themselves. 
Its about the cutest thing I have ever heard.

And its a good thing they are cute
because for some reason now that I decided to get up at 6:30
to be able to have some quiet time before they wake up
(which was around 7-7:30)
they have decided that they are going to wake up around 6 am


They both have little colds right now so i am hoping next week
everyone will be back to the old schedule

We are working on brushing their little teeth
which is funny

I would love to say they are catching on fast..
but its alot more chasing them around as they either try 
to take each others toothbrush or drop them in the toilet..

Honey Apples

We literally have gone through one extra large size of baby wash
in the last 15 months
I promise I really wash my kids

every other day

so, I have no idea how it took me 15 months to get to this point
I was shopping for a new baby wash
and came across this

and fell in love
its honey apple baby wash

and it smells AMAZING

yes it really smells as good as these pictures! 

This is going to be a great baby gift with some soft towels 
and baby wash clothes (which you can truly not get enough of)

This new year is already going by so fast..
I am not sure if that is just something you notice more
when you have kids..but life is sure flying by!

I have not been blogging like normal, partially 
out of a writers block and partially just business.
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas 
and two trips back to Michigan in two months
I literally have no idea where the last month went
except to say that it sure was a fun month! 

We had a blast visiting family and friends
and the girls are at such a fun age
they can say some words
mama, mom, dada, ball, and hi
and not a day goes by that they do not make me 
laugh out loud
and I love it. 

We are also on the house hunt which is taking up an extra  time we have
We have prayed alot about where we should "settle"
after living in 4 places in the last four years we are 
MORE than ready to feel settled.

We rented for the last few years we have lived in Wisconsin
since we were unsure about what the future held
In the last few months due to certain events it has become
clear to us that at this time its God's plan for us to stay in Wisconsin
its so bittersweet
I love it here.
.I love the city, I love our church, we both love our jobs,
I love my friends
I MISS my family and old friends
every day.

I am trusting God's plan
and I can't wait to see what 2011 holds for us.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
Jeremiah 29:11
