Happy Angelversary Brian...

Three years ago today my son, Brian William, was born. My water broke at 23wks3d. Way too early... They tried so hard to stop me from going into labor. But at 8:15 a.m. on December 29, 2005 Brian was born. He weighed 1lbs7oz. They didn't think he would survive the birth. He proved them wrong. He came out crying and peeing all over the place. We knew he was really sick. He lived for 14 hours...

My dear little boy,

We can't believe it's been 3 years since you left us... There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think of you. I know you are up in heaven with your sister looking out for Charlotte and Maggie. And I know you guys sent them to us. You will never know how important your short life is to us. We love you so much!!

Mommy, Papa, Charlotte and Maggie

I also want to remember my friend Beth daughters, Abby and Morgan who's angelversary was December 24th. Thinking of you Beth and your beautiful angels. Big ((HUGS)) to you and Michael...

3 years ago today...

My MIL passed away. I have been thinking about her so much lately. She would of enjoyed Christmas so much this year. Watching all the grandchildren running around. I hope she know just how much she was loved. She was the best MIL any person could have. She always made me feel so special. I miss her so much. Everytime I look at Maggie I can see Sandy in her eyes... We love you Sandy and miss you so very much...

Merry Christmas everyone!!

So I know Christmas is in 3 days but I have soooo much to do that I probably won't be on the computer that much. I haven't wrapped one gift, my house is a mess and the laundry is piling up!! But I wanted to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas to all of you. I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I want to thank you all for your support over the past year. It means the world to me!! I will try and post some pictures from Christmas morning this weekend!

Two posts in one day and Happy Birthday to....

ME!! Yup it's my birthday today. I am 34... I feel really old. When I was younger I never could imagine being in my 30's. And here I sit at 34. I like to think that I am like wine. I get better as I age;) Not doing much today. It's snowing. We probably got about 6 inches. I am having one of my favorite meals tonight... Taco salad. I am still in my jammies but it's that kind of day. It's cold and snowy... But enough about me...

So what's new with the girls... Maggie loves her Christmas tree. She walks around saying "tree" all day. She loves her baba (which is baby). She loves animals. Especially cows and birds. She doesn't like to take naps. She usually cries when I put her down. She is also cutting her one year molars. Charlotte babbles a lot. She says ball, mama and uppa (Papa). She loves playing with balls. We got them a ball pit for Christmas. She will be in heaven. She finally has her 4 top teeth. They took forever to come in. She loves her Wiggles. She loves to dance. They really crack me up!! Here are some pictures too!!

Photo tag

I saw this on some blogs that I read and I thought it was fun!! I will have 2 pictures thought cause I have 2 cameras...

1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer

2) Select the 4th picture in the folder

3) Explain the picture

4) Tag 4 people to do the same

NO CHEATING! (cropping, editing, etc!)

The first picture is Maggie after trying a Popsicle. The second one the girls were about 5 months old and I was just taking some pictures of them!

Thanksgiving, our Christmas tree and taking pictures for the Christmas card!

We had a really great Thanksgiving! We went to Tammy's for dinner. Everything was so yummy!! The girls ate all kinds of good food! We really had a good time.

This weekend we put up our Christmas tree! When we first brought it in Maggie freaked out! She was crying and yelling... But once she saw the lights she was very interested. Brian put the lights on and then we decorated it once the girls went to bed. It's really nice. It's the perfect size. Now I just need to keep them away from it. Yeah right...

I took pictures today in hopes of getting some good shots for the Christmas card. It is very hard to get 2 one year olds to look at me, smile and sit still. I will share some of the shots I did get. But I won't tell you what the card looks like! I am really excited about them though. I have found a new website that I love. Shutterfly!! It's really cool and very easy to use. I have figure out (thanks to auntie Bella) that I can take black and white and that unique looking pictures with my camera. I have been having fun with that!!

Oh and I went shopping on black Friday!! Let me just say the girls are getting too many toys. I just can't help myself... I went with my mom and we had so much fun. So many years I dreamt of what it would be like to have kids to buy for. And after we lost Brian and Lillian I wasn't sure if that would ever happen... I think that's half my problem. I think I overcompensate for my loss. I don't ever want Charlotte and Maggie to want for anything. I know that probably sounds really bad but I can't help it. I will never be able to buy a toy for Brian and Lillian... So I will just have to buy them for the girls... Doesn't make sense I know but that's just the way it is... I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
