McKenzie ~ Again . . .

So we celebrated McKenzie's birthday a week early, but April 27th, was her actual birthday and I made her some brownies. Her dinner of choice??? A blueberry waffle and Doritos, topped off with some brownies made for a perfect day!

Happy 2nd Birthday McKenzie!

Okay, so it's not for one more week, but Morgan and I decided to do a joint party for Brent and McKenzie. Worked out pretty good. Watching Brent eat his cake was by far the best part about the day. McKenzie loved opening all her presents and enjoyed some cake too. She and her sister also loved to play in the bouncer! Here are few pics, enjoy!

Wild Animal Park . . .

So I took the girls and Morgan and Brent to the Wild Animal Park last week. It was pretty warm, but a good time. Here are a few pictures. McKenzie loved the Elephants!

Work, work, work . . .

So, first of all, I have been searching the world far and wide for one of those deep wave crimpers for Hailey's hair, and finally found one tonight!! I was so excited, I made Hailey sit there for a few min. while I did my experiment! Isn't she adorable!? The other picture is of McKenzie running towards me, she loves me!
So I have decided that I love my job as a stay at home mom. Sure it's work, and if one of the kids wakes up in the middle of the night with a bad dream, I am the only one that gets up because "Shon has to work in the morning" and we wouldn't dream of interrupting his sleep, but won't take for granted my wonderful job again. I have been working at my old office I worked at BK (before kids) . I worked for Allstate Insurance for about 7 years before I had Hailey and I loved it. I fill in there whenever someone goes on vacation and they need some extra help. I have been keeping my insurance license up to date in case I want to go back. I may consider that part time when the girls are in school or something in the future, but working and being a full time mom is rough. I commend you ladies for doing it!!! One of my days off last week, I took the girls to Disneyland mostly because I felt guilty for leaving them and going off to work. That wasn't a day off at all, and Disneyland with two toddlers is WORK! This week on my day off, I scrubbed toilets, sinks, floors and the kitchen. I cleaned Hailey's room 3 times and vacuumed. Not so fun when you have to get up the next day and pack up the girls to go to the sitter and then truck it 35 miles north to the office! I actually loved working and miss it very much, it did get me out of the mundane everyday life I normally lead, but lets just say, I am not ready to give up my day job. I love being a mother, and sure 2 paychecks are always better than one, I rather do without to stay home, and shower when I feel like it! Also a special shout out to my wonderful Sister in law who watched my kids and was the mother when I couldn't be there! I love ya MORGAN!!!

The girls and I went to Disneyland this week. I have been working this week and last, part time, and I think they wanted to get out and do something fun. Morgan, my sister in law has been kind enough to watch them for me, so I can help out at my old job. It's been fun, but so tiring! So this is the first day I am just staying home! Back to the work force tomorrow!
