What we've been saying!

As I've mentioned before, Russell has food allergies, so it is a topic we discuss a lot. Yesterday he was trying to figure out some things about his allergies, specifically eczema and he says "So I'm 'lergic to eggs and Connor's 'lergic to eggs you put that together and we have "egg"zema! That makes sense right?!

Yesterday we celebrated Puppy's 4th birthday...Puppy is his special blue dog from his Mamo that he must have before he goes to I made a gfcf egg free cake because Puppy is also on a restricted diet now too. After giving Puppy some cake Russell exclaims, WOW Mom, Puppy really likes his pupcakes!! This time he was trying to be funny, we love his sense of humor!

Russell also tells me all the time that I need to "blog" about that, if he thinks that it is noteworthy...often times it has to do with the jumps he has mastered on his bike. Maybe I will blog about that sometime.

Aubrey has said some funny things too, but unfortunately I can't remember what they are right now, I'll update if I can think of them!! (I know, all of you who are not the firstborn are thinking right now about how your mother didn't remember all the great things you said and did too, well stop it, we love you just the same, we're just tired that's all.)

Much love,

Wonderful Evening!

Tonight was wonderful!! Colin took Russell to a Texans game so that meant the girls and I had a night to ourselves. I asked Aubrey what she wanted to do and of course she wanted to watch a movie. So the girls and I loaded up and took off. First stop, Redbox to rent High School Musical 2, then to Chick-fil-a for a milkshake to share. We headed home and popped in the movie. Aubrey LOVED it!!! She was dancing and singing her heart out. She and Bethany finally tired out and laid down to watch the end of the movie.


Hmmm, something tells me this won't be the last time Aubrey is irritated with Bethany

I'm so glad that I had tonight with my girls. These are the times that I dreamed of when I was pregnant with them. Laughing and having fun, just being with one another. If you knew my mom, you know this was her idea of fun too, and tonight God healed a little piece of my heart letting me have this with my girls. Do I wish she was here too? You bet, but I'm glad that she taught me how to have fun so I can pass it on to my girls.

Aubrey and Bethany, you are precious. Thank you for tonight! I love you stars in sky!! ~Mommy

Love to you all,

Over a month since I last posted...that's AWFUL

Well we've been busy, but isn't everyone else who blogs. I'm going to try to do better, really I am.

Some updates...

We recently found out that Russell is allergic to gluten, casein and eggs, so we have had some major dietary changes around here. Some have been good, like cutting out processed junk from our diet, some have been bad like trying to make gluten free, casein free, egg free muffins. Not gonna lie, they were really bad, really bad. We are collecting gfcf recipes, so if you have any good ones, let me know, I would love to try them.

Russell and Aubrey just finished up swim lessons and I'm really proud of how they progressed. They will both go under water for a few seconds and can manage to get themselves out of the pool if they are not too far from the side. We still have a way to go until they are swimming, but I think we have a good start.

Bethany is cutting teeth like crazy. Poor little girl is working on her fourth tooth in one month. She's a tough one!

Ok I'm done doing what I was doing, you know what I'm saying Lisa!! **smile**

I'll post more later!!

Much love,
