More Projects Mommy......

So we were pretty lame today and not up to much of anything......Shawn, the girls and I did some grocery shopping......AND we finally found Broken Rake Beer by Pyramid......we use to drink it every fall with college football games but we had not found it the past two years....I must say I am so pleased that Pyramid has brought back this fall favorite....and boy did my beer go down fast today!!! So freaking good....."Oh how I have been missing you Broken Rake!"....

Nana and I went Birthday shopping for the twins.....can't beat a buy 1 get the second at 50% off...Lets just say I think the girls will have a good birthday. Which I think we finally have planned! Grandma Paula will be here on Thursday night, then we are heading up to Spokane on Friday to hit Build-a-Bear, then Sunday we will have their stand up Bear Cake (which I will attempt to make) and Ice Cream.....Should be good times....They are so thrilled and can not wait! 3 already.....I still can not believe it....

The afternoon zoomed by the girls took a great nap, which is still hit or miss these days.....it seems that they really nap about 4 times a week.....and the other 3 times they talk or read in their room......I usually can hear them and the stuff they talk about always cracks me up....from talking about the dogs, to potty training to talking about people they have met....its fun just sitting outside their door listening.......As of lately they really, and I mean REALLY love to do projects.....mostly art projects....they ask from the minute they get up till they go to bed....."Mommy I want to do a project?".....which is usually followed by "Now"....and maybe some whining.....its funny cause it really doesn't matter what it is as long as it involves some cutting or painting or glue sticking.....and when they get done they always want to do another one.....today Nan drew a line on a piece of paper and Mikiah followed it with her scissors....she is really getting good with then, but a times it still scares me that she may cut herself......painting is one of my favorite projects for them to do and I think I am going to have the girls help me make my Christmas Cards....never too early to get started on those! here is a pic of Mikiah 'A Young Picasso'......
Lila has been great although I think she is going to be my picky eater....the girls were both really good....but Lila doesn't like much of anything....she won't eat rice cereal anymore (I really can't blame her that stuff is nasty!).....she didn't like Bananas or Carrots.....and she barely choked down pureed sweet potatoes.....tonight Avocado.....I know strange but I was reading that it is a pefect starter food for babies.....we shall see....I need to get some more fruit to try.....maybe make some pear sauce...hmmmm....I do enjoy making the food.....probably the cook in me........Lila has started to become more vocal now.....and I think partly because of the girls interaction with her.....they do a good job of talking to her and hugging her....with the occasional knock or push her over......which they know is not right and not nice, but still do it......anyway.....Here is Lila telling me her business.......she will be talking before we know it...
