I haven't updated this blog in months. I feel horrible for not sticking with it but my laptop took an unfortunate fall off the couch so I have lost all my documents and everything pretty much. My husband was nice enough to replace my laptop with an iPad. It's funny how anything I break of mine, I have broken at least 3 iPhones and now a laptop, he always seems to just laugh at me and then say he will take care of it. I'm pretty lucky but he did say if we ever divorce he is going got to sue me for everything that he has had to replace for me, ha ha.
Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years where all great. I am in the process of writing all back dated updates. It may take me a while since the girls are crazy and I can't even go to the bathroom without them trying to burn the house down, ha ha. They're ganging up on me I swear.
Reagan is getting more and more independent each day. It's hard to realize that she's almost 18 months old. At 16 months she weighs in at a whopping 17lbs , we finally replaced her infant carseat with a convertible seat. She is still facing backwards because she hasn't reached 20lbs yet and I really would like to keep her backwards as long as possible but I don't think it will last much longer then her reaching 20lbs because she hates it.
Ava will soon be starting kindergarten, July 16th to be exact. I registered her for school earlier this month. She hopefully will be able to go to this school, it's the only all day kinder in our district. They will be pulling names in March so we will find out then. If she doesn't get picked she will be going to half day kinder. I am excited and sad for her to start school. I can't believe she is almost 5, it's insane.
I've been working on a few projects. I have a banner that I am making for a friend of mine for her bridal shower. I am in love with the paper that I bought, it's a gorgeous shade of light pink and of course glittery. I also started working on a shirt, I have the fabric for it but I may end up making a skirt instead we'll see. I also have plans to make the girls some more headbands and also making decorations for Ava's upcoming birthday party in April. I have limited time to work on Ava's stuff because in March we will be going to Hawaii for 9 days so that will be two weeks I will be losing time to work on it, not that I am complaining I am way excited to go to Hawaii because I have never been.
Until next time,

One of our family New Year resolutions is to spend more time outdoors doing family things. So to start it off we decided to go to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
The girls really seemed to have a great time. Ava and Reagan both love animals and the prairie dogs were their favorite. I have always loved the Desert Museum, I think it's great to be able to see desert creatures in their natural habitats.
Daddy being silly as always.

It was a great day. I love spending the day with the littles and it's even more great to spend time with the Mr. as well. This year is going to be a great one.
