Day 57: BOB

There is nothing like a delicious BOB sandwich...breakfast on a bun! Especially when we are stuck home, yet again, with another snow "storm" ie: high winds, blowing snow. Mmmmmmm...comfort foods :)

Day 56: The Fight.

First, you pull the pants on nice and high and then you put one arm in your shirt and get it stuck on your head. You pull it on and off and then get your head stuck. You finally realize you need your other arm in the other sleeve, push that through and get your head stuck again. WA-LAAA, you push your head through and you have your pj's on! So proud!

Day 55: Silly girls

I am pretty lucky that they love each other as much as they do. Even though about 20 minutes later they were arguing over a balloon, bumped heads and were crying. Love :)

Day 54: AVM

I had my yearly scans for my AVM check up. As you can see from the picture above, or if you can't tell, I modeled it for you :) My AVM is connected to the base of my tongue and can't be removed, just has to be watched. It's pretty big, but thankfully my neurosurgeon was able to shrink it a little 2 years ago, so that my airway wouldn't be so constricted...too bad I don't have before the shrinking pictures to see the difference. These scans are from yesterday and I pointed out my airway and my mass. If you look on the side that doesn't have the AVM that's what a "normal" mouth/tongue area would look like. Mine is consisted of a mass of veins that go through the other picture you can see the big arse "snake" vein that feeds my AVM.
All is good and I don't have to go back for 2 years now :)

Day 53: Here we go again...

I'm cooking dinner, I look up and what do my wandering eyes do see? You guessed it...MORE SNOW! And apparently we are supposed to get hit with another storm by the end of the week. Please come soon spring!

Day 52: Explosion

From the moment the girls woke up (or actually I woke up...they had been awake a long time by then...he!) they played with playdough until way after lunch time. They made desserts, snakes, cakes, flowers, ice cream...all sorts of goodies. They even cleaned up their mess :) They love playdough!

Day 51: Night-boarding

Sledding while the sunsets is fun! Sledding anytime is fun! Big wee one and her friend Lil' D had a blast flying down the icy snow hill...and so did their sisters :)

Day 50: She Reads!

Once a month or so, the girls get a package of books in the mail from Cousin Meloni. This last box had a TON of "learn to read" books and dry erase boards and both of the girls tore into them! I sat down to read this book with BWO and she started to read it to me!!! I was so excited and she was so excited! Big girl is growing up!

Day 49: TV Supa-Star

Awhile back I ran into a local news reporter who had just had some samples from the winery and said she'd love to do a story on my dad. I figured she'd get ahold of me in the spring, but nope, I got a call yesterday morning asking if she could do the story today! I called my dad at the wine shop and set up the time for her to come in and met her there to watch my pops. He did great and I am so proud of all of the hard work he's put into this dream!

Week 5 LO

Day 48: Dentist

Little wee one had her first visit to the dentist today and she did awesome! She had x-rays done, got her teeth cleaned and counted and the dentist said that both of the girls did an amazing job! When we got home, both of them ran upstairs to brush their teeth with their new toothbrushes and floss!

Day 47: me

This is me. At the end of the day, looking tired and man...when did my hair get so long? I need a chin lift and I need to look more awake, but hey, we can't all be this is me.

Day 46: A "normal" day

On any given day, I can walk into the play room and find this. A big giant barbie mess and the girls doing what the girls do :)

Day 45: Love Day!

Spent the day lounging on the couch with my cousin and the girls, watching movies, eating chocolates and talking cousin's wedding.

Day 44: Game Night/Girl's Night

My cousin came in for the weekend and I invited some girlfriends over for wine, sushi and game night! Oh the laughs were endless this evening and so were the two rounds of sushi...I love these ladies and I'm so happy we all got to spend some time together!

Day 43: She flies!

We spent 4 hours outside sledding down the hill, flying over that bump and having a TON of fun! We invited lots of friends over and had a blast. Big wee one had no fear flying in the tube!

Day 42: Family

This is us. Crazy Big wee one, Mommy, shy Little wee one and the Daddy. Hanging out in our bed, watching Hanna Montana. A nice relaxing evening as a family.

Day 41: It continues.

When I woke up this morning I took a picture outside the front door, around 8:30 am. Around noon, Little wee one took a peek outside and our flag was completely hidden. It has been snowing a lot!

Day 40: Sick Day

Big wee one woke up in the middle of the night crying that her ear hurt. It continued to hurt her in the morning so we made an appointment to see the dr. In the meantime, I made her breakfast in bed and made her oatmeal extra special by adding some love :)
We headed to the dr, waited for an hour and left with Big wee one having an ear infection and Little wee one having pneumonia! SURPRISE! Looks like we'll be laying low for the next few days, which is fine since we live in a snowtropolis and storm number 2 is starting right now!

Day 39: Southwestern Style

My friend Penny, invited me to a cooking demonstration put on by a well known chef in our area. It was delicous and fun! I can't wait to go to another demo and to make these delicious foods!

Day 38: Super Sunday

Super Sunday indeed! Paul and I got to sleep in, the girls wanted super easy cereal for breakfast, and then we made this super easy recycled crayon project. We had a super easy lunch consisting of a munchie plate and then BOTH girls went down for a super easy nap...and slept for almost 4 hours! We ordered pizzas online for a super easy dinner, gave the girls a bath, put them back to bed and then crawled into bed to watch the SuperBowl. A super great Sunday!

Day 37: SNOW!

We had lots of snow fall from Friday afternoon into Saturday afternoon and Daddy and the girls had a blast playing in it! Little wee one got cold and headed in before Daddy and Big wee one made this awesome igloo. They plan on drinking hot chocolate in it! I think all together we had between 18-20 inches.

Day 36: Friday Night

The snow has started, sushi and chinese on the table, and the beer and wine are set, now all we have to do is wait on the dumping of snow! This is a good start to a weekend cooped up with lots of snow and cute little girls.

Day 35: Me Day

Every now and then you just need a day to catch up on you. Today was that day for me. A total me day. I had a photo session in the morning, coffee with friends after that, pedicure and then lunch with another friend, followed by a trip to the grocery store, pick up the girls, a quick trip to the wine shop and then home for dinner and finish the night watching our favorite Thursday night shows with my besties. A nice "me" day.

Day 34: Breakfast for Dinner

Because we love pancakes and we love to have breakfast for dinner. Filling and delicious, sticky and yummy...comes in many flavors including chocolate, buttermilk, blueberry and a fan favorite, chocolate chip. Side secret: I love when the girls smell like syrup :)

Day 33: Home Life

Just a typical day at with a helper. Moments like these are special, one little helper another playing at the kitchen table. Dinner was good too :)

Day 32: BEAT.

Pretty much sums up how we feel. Like plopping on the bed and stairing at the tv with mindless nothings going on.
