It's funny how life passes us by.......

I do not know why I even attempt to blog because I am the worst when it comes to keeping it updated. The girls are growing by leaps and bounds.... McKayDee especially. She is talking so much now and is getting close to being potty trained (which makes me really happy).
Jennaka is so independent these days. She doesn't want help with anything but then finds herself in a jam when she can't do it herself. (That stubborness must come from her fathers' side of the family. Hee Hee!)
I am still trying to get into my "groove" at work. It is challenging sometimes. It can be frustrating at times too. Especially working with a bunch of women (you all know what I mean). I do love working with the children and families and teaching staff as well.
Well, that is the update on us for now. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with my friend Leslie and her family (Thanks Les!)

A New Chapter In Our Lives.......

So, yeah, it's been awhile since my last update on the fam. I started a job (in the secular world) at the end of July and am no longer considered a SAHM : ( Well, sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do for the family, right? I miss the girls because I feel like I am missing all of the "growing up" going on with them but coming home is really sweet when they give me big hugs and kisses. Even Papi says he misses me too! Ah, that's sweet. Jennaka will probably be starting preschool soon (if I can ever get the paperwork done). I just need to work out the logistics of how to get her to and from school each day. I guess that I haven't mentioned that we have a wonderful nanny/friend who watches the girls each day. She has a 4 year old daughter that McKayDee and Jennaka just love to death. This definitely makes it easier for me to go to work each day knowing that they are taken care of. Well, that is my update for now. Keep in touch, friends and let me know how you are all doing.

Slacker Mama.................

"Procrastination is a silly thing it only makes me sorrow... but I can do it anytime I think I will tomorrow" (anonymous). I think that is my motto for this blog because posting every 3 - 6 months does not a blogger make me.
The girls are growing by micromillimeters every single day. I think it is more noticable in McKayDee than it is in Jennaka. McKayDee's hair is also finally growing... YEAH!!! Now I won't have to correct everybody when they tell me what a cute boy I have. Although I have to admit I have the cutest picures of McKayDee and Jennaka in a little tuxedo (just for the fun of it).
McKayDee is really starting to put together sentences. She'll say something like, "I have hair in mouth, mommy" or "My dolly sleeping over there". It is so fun to see them go through the different stages that they do while growing up (walking, talking, riding bikes etc). Sometimes I think it would be fun to have another baby but I also like to fact that the girls are getting old enough to do things on their own now. McKayDee is still our clumsy little one-shoed Monkey. She is always bumping her head or tripping over things. If we get her to her second and third birthdays without too many bumps it will be a miracle. She loves shoes and you can usually find her walking around the house with just one shoe on hence the name, "one shoed monkey".
Jennaka is in the thick of the "terrible threes" right now. Whoever coined the term, "terrible twos" most likely didn't have any older children because I talk to a lot of parents who can attest that three is much harder than two ever was. Jennaka wants to be first at everything, she wants to wear the clothes that she wants to wear, she has taken to physical aggression with her sister to get her way with things. She says, "NO!" more often now than she ever did while she was two. Heaven help us!!!!!!!!! She is very sweet and loving in many ways though. She is for the most part fun-loving and happy. She just has a few "moments" here and there.
I am so grateful to be their mom. I love my girls soooooo much and although I still need my alone time to rejuvenate I love when we are together singing, "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly" and laughing and giggling.

Nothing new to report but I wanted to post some new photos of mis nenas.

Spring Has Sprung............

It is amazing how busy life gets. One day you see your children as babies and then you turn around and they are small people growing into teenagers and then adults. My "babies" are getting so big now. Jennaka will be 3 in May and McKayDee will be 2 in August. I know that it is still quite small but time is flying so fast. McKayDee is our little monkey....... climbing onto everything. I think she will do well in gymnastics in a year or so and Jennaka is quickly learning to recognize all of the letters, spelling her name, and learning the sign language alphabet as well.
I am hanging in there. I have been making an effort to return to activity in the church (for those of you who know what this means) not easy but when you have a testimony you can't deny the truth. There is saying that goes, "It's going to get worse before it gets better" and I feel this statement is true for me. Gotta go this is depressing............ Love ya all.
