Where had the time gone?

Can't believe it is already November? Seems like as soon as Halloween is over, boom it is Christmas! The girls are getting so grownup and I am not sure that I am too happy with that. It will be ten years in December since we brought Abbey home and five years since we brought Emily home. It seems like it was yesterday but I have the wrinkles to prove that is wasn't.

Why Do They Have to Grow Up?

My oldest turns 10 in two days, it seems like yesterday when she was 8 months old and meeting her mom and dad for the first time. She is growing up so fast and won't be a little girl any more. We have four girls coming over on Friday night for her first slumber party. I figure that I will spend Saturday recovering from the chaos!!

Got A Shovel?

I have just about finished cleaning the mess left over from Christmas. I made the girls help me clean their playroom today and we hauled out three bags of trash and three boxes of toys, etc. to donate. It is amazing how much junk they can accumulate. McDonalds toys and dolls with wild hair and no clothes seemed to sprout out of each corner. I hate that they are growing so quickly but am happy that their interests are leaning away from toys and towards more grownup and less messy stuff. The littlest seems to leave a trail behind her of whatever caught her eye. I am looking at a headband in the middle of the floor right now. She just doesn't get the idea of putting something away. She'll probably grow up to be a neat freak but for now she is just driving me nuts!!
