Where has the time gone?

Hi All!!

I can't believe it's been almost FIVE months since I've posted!! I am still here and we are all doing well!

Geesh, since I've posted we've all had a birthday, plus Easter Mother's and Father's day and the 4th of July...crazy!  Mommy and Daddy's birthday's were nice. I turned the big 3-0 *gasp*. I don't feel any different, but it's weird to be out of my twenties...

The girls had their SECOND birthday. Can you believe it??? This birthday party was much happier than their first. If you remember, Ms. Kaitlyn did not have a good day. She was grouchy from an interrupted nap. They had a blast this year though. We had just family and a couple of close friends over for punch and cupcakes. I made a cupcake cake in the shape of a butterfly. It turned out pretty cute (pic below). They girls loved having their own cupcake and K devoured hers in a heartbeat. Natalie chowed down too, but she's always a little slower to eat...truthfully, I think she does it to taunt her sister.

They were, as usual, spoiled by all with all the gifts they received. They got two play tents, a wagon, cell phones and more.

They 4th was quiet this year. Normally we go to Hubby's mom's house and watch fireworks on the lake, but this year me and the girls went to my parent's house. They live out in the country, so the noise level would be down, plus my favorite auntie was in town so we wanted to spend time with her. It was hot that day. We BBQ'd and played in the sprinkler. The girls even had a couple of play mates (a 1 yo and almost 3 yo) They loved playing with them.

We finally have a couple little talkers on our hands! Natalie has been saying a few things for quite a while, but Kaitlyn didn't pick it up until just about the day of their birthday. Now she won't be quiet. They can both count to ten (usually) we are working on our letters and colors. They surprise me every day at how smart they are!!

Life is good right now. My job is excellent, the girls are happy and healthy, and Hubby will be going back to school full time in the fall. I couldn't ask for anything more. I'll leave you with a few pictures of my precious, not-so-little, little girls!
