Tis The Crazy Season!

Okay I hate posting pictures of myself... but after all the craziness and complete exhaustion lately... I need to be somewhat proud of myself considering I have somehow managed to survive the first three months of 4 kids under 4. Ever since the twins were born I have been literally running non stop all over the place (when I go to the store people look at me like I am nuts... but they have no idea what life is like for me) Running all the time non stop is how I have lost almost all 50 lbs so far, but I still have a few to go... 12 weeks isn't bad to lose pretty much all of it though, so I need to take 30 seconds and be proud of myself.

~The last couple weeks haven't been any exception to the craziness. Business has been good with well over 200 orders in the last 30 days, most of these orders being more than one pillow, problem is I have had to work at least 4 hours a day to help keep us on top of things and get all the Christmas orders out in time. The twins have been quite the handful though... they are horrible day sleepers so if I get anything done in a day it is in 10 minute increments. To add to the mess Aaron came down with a fever on Saturday of 102 and a cough and cold... so much for a flu shot. Now Kaylie has it, and I am now fighting 4 kids throughout the night, and trying to keep myself bug free...ha ha ha right... tis the season I guess.

~Well the girls are screaming again... so I've got to go I will try to get back on and get some recent pics of them posted....whenever I find the time!

Newborn Pictures

When I found out I was having twins I was bound and determined to get professional newborn pictures of them, I regret not having a wedding photographer (couldn't afford it) and I wish I would have done it for the other kids.... so I made it happen with the twins. Chantri Keele was the photographer and she did a fantastic job... so good that I will be going back for family pictures when the girls get a little older and when I lose all my baby weight.
Oh so precious!

Aaron the Stud!
Could you resist these brown eyes?
I've decided Kaylie could be a model... she is extremely photogenic... she definately didn't get that from me, I hate the camera and the camera hates me... but man it loves Kaylie!
Don't you love her dress? My friend Sarah D'evegnee made it for her.... she is so beyond talented! Thanks so much Sarah... it is Kaylie's favorite dress she wants to wear it ever week.
My four beautiful kids! I love them tons!

Two Months!

Okay.... I am two weeks late on this post but better late than never....right? (These pictures were taken when they were 8 weeks.
~So Alyssa (on the right) was the biggest baby at 5 lbs 5 oz and Lydia was 4 lbs 13 oz. But Lydia has always been the aggressive eater, she sets the eating time... when she is ready to eat ... they both eat. So Lydia started to gain weight pretty quickly while Alyssa slowly gained, naturally I expected Lydia to out weigh Alyssa by at least a few ounces.... as she has gotten so cute and chubby so fast... But much to our surprise they weighed in at the EXACT SAME!!! Both 8 lbs 13.5 oz! And they were both 21 in tall! Just too funny!
Sorry for the less-than-professional posses it is so hard to get a good shot of both of them... but this shot cracks me up with Alyssa playing with Lydia's ear... she is always tapping her as if she just can't get enough of her sister.
