Sydney Dance Party

Happy Weekend!!


Taylor and the Progress Report

>> Wednesday, September 21, 2011

A few pictures I took of Taylor with my new camera.  I'm still trying to figure out how to use everything in addition to learning all of the technical rules!

Every Tuesday Taylor comes home with a "Tuesday Folder".  Inside the folder contains all of the work she has completed over the week.  We are to go over everything in the folder, talk about it and ask questions.

This week was different as there was a nice progress report inside.  I quickly ripped open the staples and to my shock I saw B's C's and a D!!

A "D"!??!  I started asking Taylor why, what's going on, are you doing homework?
I told her I was not happy.  I showed Andrew who did the same thing.

Finally Taylor grabs the report card and says..."This isn't mine!!  I got the wrong one!"
She ended up with a boy in her class whose last name is Taylor.

Needless to say she demanded apologies.  Oops!


Birthday Parties!!

>> Sunday, September 18, 2011

The girls birthday parties were a 100% success.  Looking back after a week has passed, I am still shocked we survived the craziness lots of little girls bring.

Party #1
The twins had their sleepover party Saturday till Sunday morning.  

We had TEN girls, loaded them into a limo took them to have their nails done, then to a restaurant and ended the night at the house.

There were laughs, there were tears, there was playing and there was crying.  In all everyone had fun the twins were happy and everyone went home in one piece.

Party #2
Sydney's party, the same Sunday afternoon

Her Victorious party was at an indoor trampoline park.  I had little time to take pictures (I may have been sleeping from exhaustion) but Sydney and her friends had a great time. 

Happy Birthday Girls.  I love you all to pieces and hope you are happy with the birthdays we put together.


Happy Birthday To You and You

>> Friday, September 09, 2011

The girls are nine, as Taylor has informed me just half way to being an adult.  It does go by fast as much as I hate to see the time go by, each and every year brings something new and exciting.

Being born so close to the first anniversary of September 11th it really makes me look at their birthdays in a different way.  When September 11th occurred I was single, no thoughts of family, marriage, anyone but myself in my head.

Little did I know by the time the first anniversary of that day came, I would have my own little family.  I was still in the hospital and watching the footage replay itself on TV and it affected me in a completely different way. (it may have been the hormones?!)  My life did a complete 180 during that year as many peoples' did that day.  So each year I am gratefully thankful for our family, the life we have, and remember to cherish life each and everyday.

So here's to our beautiful completely different yet mostly the same twins.  We love you to pieces and hope you had an AMAZING birthday.



ASU vs Mizzou

The game was a cool 98 degrees...probably about 20 degree cooler than last week.

The friends were entertaining

and best of all the score was a winning one.


Sunset Bike Ride

>> Sunday, September 04, 2011


I ran...they was under 105 degrees..all were happy.


Photo Update

Madison busy training Marley.
Note the post-it she placed on her shirt it says...
"Trainer Madison"  **LOVE**

I was getting ready so we could go run some errands and Taylor comes in to show me her new piece of artwork.

I told her to take a picture then wash it off, this is what I found on my camera!


The Week of Syd

>> Friday, August 26, 2011

Sydney is definitely making great use of her "birthweek" celebration.

She woke up this morning with a rash on the back of her legs which has only gotten worse as the week has gone on.

I decided to have her stay home and that was when the Friday Fun Day began.  This is all we did.

  1. Went to her favorite doctor, the dermatologist.
  2. Since we were close by Daddy's work we had to stop in for a visit.  Here is where she attempted to make ridiculous demands.  (ie a cell phone, to go over to Subway next door and get a Fanta, for Mommy and Daddy to switch cars)
  3. Next she had me bring her to Taco Bell / Pizza Hut for lunch.  Here she ordered a healthy lunch consisting of nachos, pizza and a Mt Dew.  She downed the Mt Dew, licked the nacho cheese cup clean, ate all the chips and threw out the pizza.
  4. Then I was told we must go to Justice to get her new jean shorts, since she has out grown hers.  I suggested Old Navy instead. She clearly stated she doesn't like the store and will not get anything there. (fun)
  5. Since I made her get Old Navy clothes, we next had to go next door to Bath and Body Works so she can spend some of her birthday money burning a hole in her pocket.
  6. Finally to the grocery store where ice cream, waffles and chocolate milk magically ended up in the cart.
On top of all of this fun I can not understand a word she says since she is now missing all of her front teeth.  One of the best misunderstandings of the day....

What I think Sydney says..."I need to take shower when I get home."
Me..."You need a shower?.....Ok I guess if you want one."
Sydney "NOOOOO MOM   I owe you six dollars when I get home."

My Spunky Monkey!

I love my little firecracker to pieces.  Her spunkiness and attitude is something I like to see as I was a very shy kid, BUT I did sneak in an hour nap after I picked the twins up from school.


Wild and Crrrazzzy Night!

>> Thursday, August 25, 2011

Wild and Crazy BECAUSE of the picture below.

I told Sydney, about an hour before, she needed to get her other front tooth out.
She told me "NO WAY", and I expected it to be in her mouth for at least another two weeks.
As I was doing homework with Maddie she ran to me spitting blood everywhere screaming with excitement, "I KNOCKED OUT MY TOOTH....I KNOCKED OUT MY TOOTH!!"

Sure enough the tooth was gone and a mouthful of blood was in its place.

It brought a bit of excitement to this boring scene.
One and a half hours of homework is ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!
(for mommy and students)
