Some statuses from my facebook page...updating facebook is much easier than keeping this blog updated.  But I'm still going to try!

December 14, 2011: 
Note to self: When making the home remedy or apple cider vinegar, honey and water, a little vinegar is good...more is DEFINATELY not better!

December 27:
Lacey: Mommy what are you eating?

Me: it's stuffing
Lacey: It wooks wike puke! Are you eating puke?
Me: It's not puke
Kylie: Lacey when you were sick last week did you see mommy eat your puke? No! Mommy doesn't eat puke!

I found this little interaction so funny. I don't know what was funnier the fact that Lacey thought I was eating puke or Kylie finding the need to explain to her that I DON'T eat puke!

Gingerbread Village

The girls decorated their gingerbread village

I really thought they would have fun doing it for quite a while

I was wrong...

They decorated for about 10 minutes

before telling me they were done

They did, however, get a lot done in that 10 minutes

All in all they houses they decorated turned out cute.  I guess the main thing is they had fun!

Christmas Parties!

All three girls had their Christmas parties today.  It was so nice to be able to be at all 3 parties.

Kylie's was first, they each colored a puzzle piece and then all the kids put it together to see the 'secret message'.
Then they did a candy cane race, Kylie's team came in first!  And then of course there were treats and gifts to open.  I think all the kids had a great time.

Then Kylie and I were on to the little girls Christmas party at their daycare.  It was nice that the timing worked out so well!
Katie and her friends enjoyed some juice and muffins!  Then they were off playing with all of the parent that came into see them.  They had lots of fun enjoying the extra attention!
Kylie mostly stayed in Lacey's class enjoying the treats they had (theirs were better than Katies :)).  After Lacey's class enjoyed their treats they sang 2 songs for the parents that were there.  They had lots of fun opening their books that they exchanged.  Although some knew which books they brought and didn't quite understand the 'exchange' concept....their only 3, I guess that's what you'd expect!
All in all each of the girls had a great time, and so did Mommy!

11 Months!

Look who's 11 months old already!  It's hard to believe that in a month's time this little sweetheart is going to be 1 YEAR old!  Seems like she should still be the tiny helpless baby, but she is anything but helpless.  She tries very hard to keep up with her sisters and does an amazingly good job at it!  She took her first steps earlier this month but has not yet REALLY taken off.  Everyday I see her try to take more and more steps, won't be long now!  :)

Check out the stripes on her belt!  Kylie earned her first stripes tonight at Karate!  She has only been going to Karate for 2 weeks!  They had a group of kids leveling up and those that are not getting another belt are able to earn stripes.  She was so proud of herself.

To earn the stripes she had to break a board with her fist.  She was able to do it on the second try!  She said afterward, 'Mom do you see how purple my fist is?  That is HARD work to break that board!'

We are so proud of her!  She LOVES going to Karate!

Random things heard around my house today

Kylie: Lacey do you even know what jail is?
Lacey: Uh, yeah
Kylie: Really, then what is it?
Lacey: Uh, it's kinda like a time out.

Lacey: Kylie did you write one this thing (foam magic wand)
Kylie: Yes, I did
Lacey: O.M.G!
Then when Kylie and I were laughing she looked at both of us and said 'was I silly?' Too funny!

Lacey: Mommy you've been very good, you get one skittle!

Katie's First Christmas pictures!

Katie did such a good job getting her picture taken!
I really thought she was going to be the one that was the hardest to take since she is so busy crawling these days.  She did great, my only complaint?  She looks so much older that 10 months!!!

Love her, she is a great job as usual :-)

Katie's 10 Month's Old already!

It's hard to believe our youngest daughter is already 10 months old.
She fits in perfectly with our family.  And soon she will be walking!  Right now is practices standing unassisted for long periods of time.  One of her FAVORITE past times is to push all of the kitchen chairs as far as she can until she runs into something.  She has a toddler toy for walking but very much prefers the chairs and the garbage can!
