Aunt Megan's Visit

My sister Megan was down for a long weekend and we had so much fun in those couple of days. We exposed Aunt Megan to all sorts of things for the very first time: Animal Kingdom, Gatorland, Chick-fil-a, Steak n Shake and best of all....Shamrock Shakes!!!



Gatorland:



Animal Kingdom:




I think my favorite part of Animal Kingdom was the Lion King Show:




It was amazing...like a mini Broadway show!



My sister has new, beautiful camera and she wanted to practice taking pictures on the kiddos. We headed out and had a fun photoshoot:)
















We just had so much fun. I miss her already but am so grateful for the fun we had;)

Camouflage Projects

The twins had to do a project on animal camouflage. This is their third 'research' project of the year. They have to look up some facts and then do a final presentation.

Stella picked a Chameleon:


Thomas picked an Octopus:

Next Stage


The crib is gone.

This bedroom will slowly transform into a firetruck big boy bedroom. The crib went over to be transformed into a beautiful crib for a highly anticipated little princess.

Nonetheless, it is gone.

All three kiddos spent a couple days at my parents. Last weekend, they were with my MIL. As we get these wonderful breaks, I noticed this feeling creeping in. I fill my days with lots of work when the kids are gone so I don't feel guilty working when they are back. But...that feeling....

no more crib....

overnights at their grandparents...

I am not sure I can put into words what this feeling is.

I feel done. Done having children. Done having a baby in the house. Done having a crib in the house. Our family is done. Complete. Final. This is it. And...this is the weirdest part...I feel ok with it all.

I think I have one foot in the next stage of motherhood. Watching the twins turn 7, I realize James will be 7 one day. I know that sounds silly...of course he will turn 7. But when you have young children, it feels like you will be changing diapers and planning nap times forever.

I am excited to see what this next stage of motherhood holds.

Valentine's Day Crafts

This weekend we got our Valentine's Day craft on! The twins each picked a project (off Pinterest) to give out to their class.


Here is what Stella wanted to make:

Stella took one look at the picture and she knew exactly how to make them. I could not help at all. She is so funny:)



And here is what Thomas wanted to make:

Thomas wrote "You're dynamite":)

I think both projects turned out super cute and most of all, the twins loved making them!!

Round Two

On Monday, I registered James for preschool.

Again.

Last year didn't go so well.

I think back since last August. James did not react well to school. He went through a time when he would freak out when I left, he is still sleeping in our bed. He seemed to have some sudden anxiety.

So here we go again. He will be a year older. I will be a year wiser. heh

I have some ideas for how things can go smoother. But if there is one thing James has taught me, is that I do not have all the answers.
