...Karys' two cents!
So - Hi! Fancy meeting you here! Man, life sure has a way of sucking me in!! And - as is evident from my posting - Blogging gets put way back in...the linen closet!
And...here are the girls and Gram helping Daddy set up the tree! And...before you go making all those judgements about how sacrilegious it is that we have a fake tree - I figure, they have no idea as of yet! May as well take the help while I can! And we're living with my Mom, who already owed this plastic variety of Christmas cheer! Maybe when we are in a place of our own and the girls are a bit older, we'll venture out to find "the perfect tree!"
And...another first...Avery helping in the decorating process!
Trying to decide where to put the bobble!
Who doesn't where their bathing suit and tu-tu while hanging their festive bobbles?
Trying to spread the wealth!
They all like to be together...right?!
Can you tell an almost three year old handled this decorative placement??
So...that's about it for now! We're in the process of planning for a joined birthday party for the girls this weekend and extremely glad for the fact that we have the liberty to do this! We acknowledge that this will not always be welcomed by the girls and anticipate celebrating their birthdays separately in the future! But...again...I'll take the help where I can get it!
I'll leave you with two videos displaying the girls getting into the festive spirit...
Avery, fully walking...
and Karys, fully ballerina!!
One last note...I just came back from swimming with Karys and it was so funny when I was explaining to her that the Eagle she was looking for was over in the Kiddie pool and not where we were - in the hot-tub! She seemed to understand what I was saying, but still had a look of confusino of her face! And then I understood why, when she said to me, "Mummy, I wanna go over to the Mitzi pool!" I said "kiddie" but she heard "kitty" and thus requested to go over to the "Mitzi pool" - which happens to be "cat" in German! HA!
I thought it was pretty funny!
So...there ya go! That's us...in a nutshell!
Hope you are just as swell as us these days!
