Can someone please fill me in on the secret of keeping your sanity with two kids? Granted, they're pretty cute, right?  I'm incapable of ever finding time to sit and relax, let alone blog, read or watch a movie.  It's such a great life, but I sure do miss blogging about this simple life of motherhood.  And pictures... let's not even talk about how neglected my camera must feel.

Regardless, the last month I've been working my fingers to the bone with helping my mother-in-law get swimming lessons going, working part-time at The Baby Cubby, plus writing a few articles and blog post for their websites.

It's been wildly fulfilling, but it takes work... and lots of it!  My house is often neglected, but I feel full and needed and accomplished, which is much more important than having a spotless clean home. I'm cool with it.  

Needless to say, I'm behind because I'm busy and I'm busy because I'm behind... and that's probably how it will be for the next 50 years.

Hope you're all having a great week!
Plus, Happy Hump Day!

family date night | 02

One of our favorite things we did over the holiday was when we went roller-skating.  We went with my family and a some close family friends.  The last time I had been to the skate rink was back in 5th grade and, at that time,  roller-blading was the "cool" thing.  That means I had never skated on actual roller-skates.  Every one had a good time and we all agreed it was the best activity we did together. Sadee even got to try her feet at the "real" thing, versus the strap on skates.  She adored it, but tried to dance to often, making her fall a lot.

We will definitely be doing this again!  And if you ever need an idea for a family date night, this makes for an all around great time!

merry christmas | 39/52

Our Christmas was wonderful, crazy, happy and tiring.  I learned a lot from my first Christmas as a mother-of-two.  We were endlessly spoiled from all sides {especially getting to have my "baby" sister spend the holiday's with us}.  We ate junk food all day, every day.  We watched a whole lot of movies.  We rarely cleaned.  We spent time playing with unorganized toys and doing puzzles.

It was just an all-around good time!  Merry {belated} Christmas from us, to you!

Sadee : Her, her cousin, and her brother received matching hats before Christmas.  They thought it was pretty spectacular, especially considering they call them their, "Olaf hats."  

Cameron : A little rosy-cheeked monster.  This kid could, and will, destroy anything in his path.


Dec 7 - Dec 13

Sadee : At Joy School, Sadee and her friends did a Christmas Show for their dad's and grandparents.  It was pretty cute and very much done by 2-year-olds.  They did great!

Cameron : This guy learned to wave and even dance on occasion (which looks the same as waving). 


Sadee : Over the holidays, she enjoyed turning the lights on for the Christmas tree and playing underneath of it.  It felt magical to watch her there.

Cameron : Currently impossible to take picture of.  He loves the lens cap to the camera, so you'll probably see that in many more photos.
