Back East

My hubby lived in West Virginia/Virginia for 2 years and we've always wanted to take a trip out there and see things on the East Coast. But the more kids we have the harder it seems to plan a big trip like that. I think it would be fun to have a long road trip and visit other sites along the way. But the cost of gas prices and hotels and eating on the road all adds up pretty fast. It would be kind of cool to find some obx real estate for sale and own a place out there to rent out most of the year and have available for us if we ever wanted to take a trip there. One day we will take a trip out there, eventually. :)

Nap time

You know what the most relaxing part of my day is? Nap time. Not my nap time (hah!) but the twins' nap time. It's the one part of the day that I can actually get anything accomplished without interruption. I usually use it to do dishes and clean up the kitchen a little. Sometimes if I just need to rest I will lay on the couch for a bit or finally get a shower. Today I'm looking forward to my shower. Sometimes I just can't wait until nap time and just throw the babies in the shower with me, but it's far from relaxing with them pulling all the shampoo, body wash, shaving cream, etc off the shelf the whole time. I have to watch where I step, keep them from slipping, and then everyone dry and dressed again is a pain. So it's just much nicer if I can shower during their nap time. Since they napped late this morning I've got to wait just a little longer before they'll go down for their afternoon nap. At least I can still count on their 2 naps a day, it'll be harder when they switch to just 1 a day.

Finding ideas

I'm sure I've mentioned it (or maybe not?) but I love pinterest. So many great ideas all in one spot! Fun craft ideas for kids, ideas for decorating your home like picture layouts and log beds, tutorials for how to do hairstyles, etc. Lately I've been looking up cute little girl stuff to make for my sister who is having a baby girl in a few months. I've got a couple dress patterns and baby booty patterns I'm planning to get working on soon. Now I just need to find the motivation to get off pinterest and actually do them lol.

Way overdue catching up

Okay, so I've been promising pictures for so long. I don't think I've even posted any since my Thanksgiving update! So I'm going to start at last Christmas and just post a few pictures from each month since then.


Twins' first birthday-
