Catching up

Well to speed things up a big I skipped a couple of months of pictures. This is what has been happening in our lives lately. I decided to stay home again and just work as a server in the evenings. It wasn't working out for us financially for me to continue to work full-time and pay for a sitter. I love being home again. It's been an adjustment for us all. I'm relearning the girls and they are relearning me. They do miss our sitter quite a bit. If anyone is in need of a FANTASTIC sitter please let me know and I will pass along her information. She is a super, wonderful sitter.
I've been home now for almost a month. I really miss my girls/co-workers at the hospital...but I'm glad to be home.
Here are some pictures from October to current...of course in opposite order:

Mal playing in the snow. She loves to eat ice, etc so when her gloves got caked w/ snow that was the 1st thing she did.

She ran out of snow on her mittens so she decided to eat it off the ground. Don't worry I warned her about the 'yellow' snow.

Me and Mal getting ready to play in the snow...of course I did more shoveling then playing

Chloe is all done unwrapping presents.

All the chaos after opening presents Christmas Day

Family picture in front of the tree Christmas day

Christmas Eve picture before the girls went to Nana's house. I had to go to work so I missed out on the fun.

The weekend before Christmas we went to Crown Center to go ice skating and finish up some last minute Christmas shopping. Chloe had to sit on the sidelines while dad and Mal went around the rink.

Dad and Mal trying to make it around in less then an hour.

Me and Mal. She did really good but wasn't quite ready to do it by herself. It killed my back though:)

Cutie Mal getting ready to skate.

We decided to get Mallory's hair cut. She got about 4 inches cut off. She was really excited about her new hair and it looks super cute.

After picture.

Mallory and Nacho

Chloe, she has about 6 teeth now. She has 4 on the bottom front and is cutting her 1 year molars on the bottom. She is starting to get some on the top, but nothing has poked completely through. Poor girl is getting all her teeth at the same time...some nights have been very rough.

The girls and I went to visit Oma and Gpa Dean in Illinois. We went down to Bernadotte to have dinner w/ the family. The girls and I were playing at the playground. Some of the equipment they had when my mom was little...but it still works great and the girls had a blast.

Mal playing in the leaves.

Happy Halloween. Mal was a lady bug and Clo was a bumble bee

Playing outside before it gets too cold.

silly girls

Chloe on her 1st birthday. She turned 1 on October 6th. She has grown up so much since then. How did the time go so quickly.

Well, it is my goal to post at least once a month. Now that the holidays have passed I should have more time. It was pretty difficult for me to keep on top of everything when I was working full-time. Hope everyone had a happy and safe holidays.

I'm so glad to have you working back with me at the 'Horn again, honey! It's good to have another playgroup mommy with me, and know your spending time with your girls during the day! :-)

Emily I'm so happy for you that you get to stay home with the girls. I can't believe how "grown up" they are!
