Life around here

Here are some recent shots from these parts. . . Daddy reading a story to his girls. . .
Brian was on the news tonight with his first big case. He got the dude to confess yesterday - which is awesome for him! He also had some great lines on the news! :)
Princess Madeline all dolled up!
Emily is in her Halloween bunny costume minus the ears.
Oh my. Yesterday was a tough day for me. . . maybe because of THIS. . . Anyway, I have had a really hard time adjusting to Brian's new schedule. It is hard to go from 2 days alone then 2 days with him - to 5 straight days alone wiht the kids. Then I just get frustrated with myself with my attitude (though I don't know how to change it!) I want to be home with my girls. There is no other job I can think of wanting to do. I want to be the one home with my precious children - BUT - while I'm doing it I just feel trapped and like I'm watching the clock for the day to be done. I do NOT like this. But I'm not sure how to change it. . .

Matching Outfits

Matching outfits, oh how I love thee.

This may be one of the last times I get to do this. . . Carter's still has clothes in all 3 sizes . . . but soon Emily will size out on me.

Woe is me.

I will miss these days of dressing my girls alike.
They are kinda cute, huh?

Serious Bed Head

My in laws watched the girls one night so we could attend a wedding. When they got Kate up from her nap, she had some serious crazy hair going on. My father in law took these pictures to document it!!! Hilarious!

Happy Birthday Madeline

Madeline turned 4. Sigh. I begged her to let us have her turn 3 again, but alas we went ahead and let her age another year. . . She decided she wanted a make up party. She woke up to find a caboodle full of nail polish and lip gloss. Soon her friends arrived for a make up party. We did several stations. . . you could put make up on a sketch of Maddie, make a necklace, have your own make up done, get your nails painted, and be sprayed with fairy dust. The little girls had a wonderful time. We also opened presents and had cake!
The day after Maddie's birthday was Sunday - so we went to church. Then we let Maddie choose where to eat. . . she chose Red Robin. They sang to her and brought her a sundae. Then she chose for us to have a family movie night later that evening; complete with popcorn and m & m's.

A day of remembering

We recently attended Nicki's Celebration Service. Boy was it sad.
While in Brian's hometown we stopped by his childhood home. . . and took a couple of pictures.

We got to go down to my home town's Oktoberfest for Friday evening. I like to go whenever I can. It is good memories, good food, and fun to see old friends. My mom and dad met us there and ate with us, let the kids ride rides, etc. We had a great evening.
