I think I'm back.....

These pictures are all it took to bring me out of my blogging retirement.
I just had to share.

It took Kasey all of two minutes to take these, thanks to her efficiency and a promise of sour balls to cooperative models.

Spooning and Sleeping Kung Fu Panda Moves

The crib is gone.

Maggers is now in a big girl bed with her sister. Has been for about a month now.

And guess what?

She's actually sleeping. Gets up only once, which is waaaaaayyy better than the four to six times a night in the crib.

It's safe to say that she's never slept better.

As for Olive... I think she has.

19 Months

Each night when praying to Jesus to give me the patience, strength and stamina required to parent my sweet Maggers, I first thank Him for blessing me with such an amazing child.

Confessions: Part I

I watch the Bachelor, yes I do.

Each week I voluntarily watch in horror as these "women" make fools of themselves on national television all for the hopes of being chosen as Jake's permanent "copilot".

It's a mess, yes.

But, I absolutely love it! It has got to be THE most painfully awkward show I have ever watched! Both Rob and I are loyal viewers of this fine television program. We can't get enough of it! So much in fact, that I now follow a weekly blog, written by an old friend from high school, that divulges the inside scoop on all the juicy, horrendous drama that makes the Bachelor so very special.

So, as I read today about all the behind the scenes "facts", I was absolutely HORRIFIED to find out that this very informed source who writes this column SWEARS he knows who indeed Jake choses to ride on his wings of love.....


... oh, sorry! That's not her!
That's David Lee Roth from Van Halen.

O.K..... It's HER!

ooops! My mistake.

That's the guy(?) from Twisted Sister.
I'm sorry, it's so confusing.

It's HER!

VIENNA Lee Roth Twisted Sister!!!!!!!!

Are you screaming? Because, I sure am!

Now, I definitely won't miss one second of this show to see if this outrageous outcome is true!!!

A Sneak Peek...

at an intricate part of Rob's EXTREMELY manly parade float costume.

That's right.

Those are man tights.

Hopefully Rob doesn't become too attached to these striped beauties because they are on loan. The best part about his costume reveal at last night's "Float Rider Dinner" was when he saw the tights he leaned in close to me and asked in a very serious tone...

"Do I put these on OVER or UNDER my boxers?"

I died.

Here he is in full garb as "Prince Valiant". He will be seated solo at the very front of the float in a plane that is approximately 30 feet in the air.

Here is the group riding the float.

The Trader Joe's float is in the 47th position out of 92 entries in the parade. They should be on television anywhere between 8:45am to 9:00 am. We are so excited!

He's Ready For His Close-Up

My Rob.

Thanks to a lovely letter written by one of Rob's coworkers, the powers that be at the Trader Joe's headquartes selected him to be one of seven riders on this year's Rose Parade float. Because of this, all of us are the recipients of a four day, all expenses paid, trip to Pasadena!

Here is the official Trader Joe's float. Look for it this New Year's morning.
And, when you've found it, look for my husband. He will most likely be the one cheese-ing it up for any camera pointed in his direction, with perfect hair and excessive stage make-up (as per his request).

Happy New Year!

My Favorite Visitors

Last week my sister, Ryan and all three boys came into town for Christmas. It was nonstop fun! I absolutely love my sister and love that our children are so close, despite the obvious distance.

These three kill me.
They play together so well and it's a constant party when all together. Their relationship is very special.

What's equally as special is the strong cousinly love happening between the babies.

I mean, look at the sweet and loving way he looks at her.
So precious.
