Not Me Tuesday

I don't know if any of you read MckMama but you should she is an incredible writer, photograper and mother to five children. I love what she is doing with her life! I want to incorporate a few of the things she does into my life. Like having chickens:) And trying to use less waste. Well back to my point, MckMama does a "Not Me Monday" post so I am doing a Not Me Tuesday:)

It was not me who gave Laney a play fork to use this morning for breakfast because we didn't have any clean baby forks......or clean adult forks.

It was not me who gave Laney a hotbox cup with a straw two days in a row because we didn't have any clean sippy cups. Nope no way would I do that.

Do you see a trend here? dont worry I have already done two loads in the dishwasher today :p

It was not me who let Laney and Kinsley play in the water from my humidifier so I could make my bed and pick the clothes off  the floor. (don't worry Jennifer it was clean water:))


Have a Not Me Tuesday Night:)

Night with my Girls!

Those girls would be my Laney and my Heidi! We had such a fun night:) Daddy went to work at five then it was just me and my girls. Laney and I showered, lotioned and painted our nails sparkly!!! Then we read books and ate bagels :p I made Laney dinner with brown rice, peaches and chicken then I said to her hmmm I might have a bagel and she pushed her plate away and said, "BAGEL BAGEL!!" hahaha  nice going mom!!!! We tossed the ball with Heidi and read lots and lots of books! She usually doesn't have a lot of patience for books but when she is sleepy she can sit and do one thing longer. We have this book from 1990 and some of the pictures crack me up!
why is this baby only wearing a bandana????

vest...really? how about vacuum or vase or even vegetables I think my child at least could recognize  a vacuum better than a suede furry vest!


We have another book from the same author and we really like its a counting book and all of the pictures are of things that Laney already knew so its fun to read and count them. But the ABC book is a little ridiculous, for the letter B they have a baby in a bathing suit.....how is that the best they could come up with for the freaking letter B!
ok I am done complaining  about that book:)

Have a sweet Saturday night

Heellooooo 2012!!

I am very excited for the new year:) Not for any specific reasons I just like change:)

This is a post of randoms:) As usual...
Heidi's full name is Miss. Heidi Mae Christensen and you have to say it with a southern accent:)

My cousin Natalie visited from Baltimore over New Years. It was so wonderful to have her here! The first time I had seen her in years was a few days after Laney was born so I was exhausted and overwhelmed with being a new mommy then the next time she came was for my wedding. I barely got to see her then so it was really nice being able to spend time with her.

Caleb took Natalie and I out to Bravo then we went to my moms house to watch the ball drop:) It was a lovely relaxing evening.

I have been playing around with my Silhouette and its freaking amazing!!! I have so many ideas!! My next project is to figure out how to use my serger!

Caleb and I are starting a new healthy eating plan, its pretty much high protein low carb. We want to feel more energized and Caleb wants to shed a few pounds. I also need to find a way to sneak vegetables into Calebs food :p

I made her that scarf:) She loves it.

Have a positive  Wednesday!
