I love this sweet girl! 

I want to make the girls duvet covers. I just can't decide what I want them to look like! I made these super awesome high quality mock ups of the 2 options that I like best :) 

Option #1

Sort of this style but in a light aqua: 
 {I kind of want something similar to this for our bedding though and I don't know if it would be too weird for our bedding to be so similar to the girls} 

Option #2

Like this: 
I find it oddly relaxing to organize the girls toys. I think it makes me feel like my life is organized... it isn't.... but at least I can feel like it is for the 5 minutes before they start playing with it all again! 

The play kitchen/ market area is at my Mom's. Also at my Mom's these baby announcements on her fridge.. Where did those babies go and why aren't there any announcements for their siblings? :) Poor second borns! 

CLo is still dealing with the eye stye thing. Her eyes are looking pretty wonky lately. We went to the Doctor for some eye drops and cream to hopefully take the stye's away...

She was NOT happy that I took her coat off so that the Corpsman could take her weight. 

Coat back on and happy again! She REALLY likes her coat! 

She weighed in at a whopping 21.12 pounds! Kenley's weight trend was to weigh the same as her age in months and it looks like Claire is following in her sister's footsteps.

Friday, our friends the Peters came over to paint pumpkins! 

This is how Claire says "Shhhh"

James and Nater came over for a sleepover on Friday! It was honestly the best babysitting experience ever. We fed them dinner and then headed down to watch Tarzan with popcorn! The kiddos loved it! I love that the girls are so close with their cousins! I made a double batch of pancakes the next morning and their wasn't a pancake leftover! Amy is going to have to quadruple every recipe she makes when those boys are teenagers! 

Sweet Cousins! It is so fun to see Nate and Claire interact more!

Claire is definitely our musical child. She loves singing and will belt it out! She has been loving playing the piano and singing twinkle twinkle little star while Daddy plays. 

Her face here cracks me up. She really gets into it! 

I get asked all the time if the girls are twins. Maybe I should stop dressing them alike? :) 

For Christmas, I want new towels and bedding! Amy and I have talked about how once you get to the 5 or 6 year mark it seems like all of the wedding presents begin to wear out and it's time to buy more. I want these white towels from Costco. Bob and Brenda have them and they are great quality and pretty inexpensive too!  

Auntie Kimbe came home for the weekend! She had to come teach me how to do my own make-up for the Marine Corps Ball this weekend. I wish she could just be here to do my hair and make-up! 

Shopping at the outlet mall. I can not believe I worked there.... It totally stresses me out to even go there now... I am a grumpy old lady :) 

Everyone says that she looks "just like" me. 

Do you see that time??? We had a crazy night Monday night! I don't know what was with the girls but they were both up constantly. CRAZY!! 

Okay! Now it's your turn to weigh in! Which do you like better? Girls bedding options #1 or #2???

I like the stripes.

Amy said...

Cute pictures!! Is it horrible that those are the exact towels I want too? We're so old and boring!

Personally, I'm a sucker for stripes, but I think the other duvet cover says "Keri" more. :-)

I cracked up reading this post on more than one occasion. I agree that your duvet cover and the girls' should be different so I say stripes for the girls. Also, "Amy and I have talked about how once you get to the 5 or 6 year mark it seems like all of the wedding presents begin to wear out and it's time to buy more." Greg and I are totally in agreement with this too! We just hit the 7 year mark and have needed everything replaced for a while but Dave Ramsey says no!
