Man...I really love these kids. We did the 12 month pictures~ finally. They are 13 months now. A month late isn't bad in my book. We had a great time. Mr. Mayer did excellent work as usual. I learned how to do collages (thanks Mr. Mayer!) finally so you won't be bombarded with pictures. It cleans it up a little. Have you ever tried to take pictures of 13 month old twins? Wow! It is not an easy task. The fact that we have any decent pictures is astounding. It was an all day event for sure. Throw my friends 9 month old and a 4 1/2 year old Diva and we had our hands full! We took the majority of the pictures at my friends house and a garden in Grove, Okla. There are a few we took yesterday in our backyard.
Look at the pictures and notice the one where he is pulling out my Pansies!! Dang if it isn't a cute picture. But, my pansies, really?!
This one is a climber. My favorite picture is his Heisman pose. At least that's what it looks like to me. Just saying.
Will someone please tell me when she got so big? When did this happen and who let it happen? She is a ham whenever a camera comes out. There were no problems getting her to pose. Getting her brother's to take a good picture with her...that's completely different.
When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine! She came over today to make some pasta. While s
It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken. Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back) Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.
Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness. And it hurt so good. Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills. Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the stre
