Long Week . . .Suprisingly Good

So, this week Brent has been on late shift, which means he doesn't get home until 8. It sucks and I hate it every 6 weeks or so that it rolls around. It is generally a horrible week where it seems like the girls are much harder than usual to control . . . especially Vivian. This week has been really good though; its a blessing too! Vivian has not had ANY meltdowns at home, she's been generally well behaved and I have not lost my patience with her at all. I definitely needed to have a good week, as I'm 9 months pregnant and taking forever to recover from being sick, and I would count this one as great! The girls have been so sweet and funny! Sophie started making a new face when she wants something, here it is:

Vivian has been really funny, as always. This morning she informed me that Christmas isn't over, its back because its snowing. Then, she has named a toy "Kella", which has started a trend. There are now dolls named, Hella and Tella, and I was informed yesterday that "Mella" was asleep. The girls are lots of fun and I'm glad that I get to be home with them!

Where did the time go???

I love this picture of the girls!

Well, Christmas and the new year have come and gone and I'm wondering where all the time went. A week before Christmas we had an ice storm and were without power for 2 days. Luckily we didn't have much stuff in the freezer to throw out and we had a warm place to stay.

Christmas was great and the girls had so much fun. They got a play vanity which is a big hit. They love to watch themselves in the mirror. Just today Vivian was giving herself kisses on it and then Sophie came over to copy her. Too cute! Here are a few pictures from the big day!

Well, my New Year's resolutions are to have this baby before Feb., finish the quilt I started cutting out yesterday BEFORE I have the baby (we'll see how that one goes), and be better about reading my scriptures every day.
