Who is Sick of this Weather? (Raises Hand)
I have no idea how people who have children and work do this.. I mean it seems like OKC schools have been OUT more than they have been in! As a working mom I can't imagine how these parents have to take off every single day the kids are out of school and are able to keep their jobs.. I hope the weather is more cooperative as the girls get older.. Thankfully I have a nanny and don't have to worry about the daycare closing and all that mess.. Speaking of nannies.. This is Lapoppins last week with us. She is leaving to go take care of her granddaughter now.. We will miss her, But never fear, we have found a new one! She's awesome and we are super excited to Welcome Leslie into our house.. I'm not sure what her funny, nanny name will be, so I'll report back on that..
In other news the girls had their dedication at Crossings a few weeks ago. It was so great! All of our families were there to support us, and the girls. So nice to have everyone there, getting along, and being a giant family. We so appreciate that. Plus we love our church, and love sharing it with people. The girls were decked out in Pink tutu dresses, and our Sunday school class even snuck down and cheered for them as well when their names were called. Awesome.
The Girls also had their 9 month checkups. Everything looked perfect. Cross weighs 21lbs, LL weighs 19 pounds..both happy, healthy and doing great. No shots this time, so they liked that even better! They are getting heavy and dragging around those car seats makes me want to spit. They are so heavy.. ugh. We have bought the Convertible ones, but MJ has not installed them yet, but hopefully by this weekend.
Nanny to the girls..they love her! She is a gentle Giant..
We also got the storm shelter installed. We did the kind in the backyard and they put the door under our Patio so it worked out quite nicely. They are still like giant Tombs to me, so I hope we never have to get in there.. but I'm glad we have it.. Last year we had the May 20 tornadoes the week BEFORE the girls were born, and then the Yukon Tornado's the week AFTER they were born so we actually had to run from the storms.. It was a pain, and I'm glad we won't be doing that again.
If Winter is any indication of how terrible Spring/Summer is going to be, I'm thinking it will come in quite handy. Ophelia Optima is in the shop getting fixed from the 86 year old woman smashing her up... So I'm cruising in a Tahoe..Its pretty great because it has heated seats.. and who doesn't want a warm hiney during all this crap weather?!? Right! We are going to the farm this weekend to visit my family. Hopefully it will be a bit nicer..
We had a fun weekend. We took the girls to MJ's dad while we went and watched the new Liam Neeson movie "Non Stop".. it was kinda like watching "Taken" except it was on an airplane. We went to the Warren, so I got to have real butter on the popcorn which is legit. Love that. It was a good movie.. Liam doesn't do too many bad movies (Except "The Grey" was pretty awful) and it was nice for us to get out and run around.. The girls had fun, although they never took a nap.. just played the whole time, so then when we get them back they are like little crazies.(Isn't that what grandparents are for?! lol) .But they went to bed early and slept good, so thats all we can ask!
I already have some stuff for the girls 1st bday.. Pretty excited about this. Its going to be ridiculous, because thats how I roll. We are having it at our house and inviting the whole family over. Should be a good time!! Hope you are all staying warm!!
