We had a wonderful thanksgiving this year. The kiddos got to show off their thanksgiving outfits one more time. They had a rough start to traveling, not much sleep led to some fussy babies. However, they are adjusting and doing better. I did some black Friday shopping, but found this 9 pm thing ridiculous. Next year I will head out around 4 am and call it good. Got some great deals, and was done by 3 am. I will say I had a lot more energy this year, which is great because that is when we celebrate thanksgiving with Brett's family. I just hope they tone it down a bit next year, or soon we will be having black thanksgiving :(
I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!

Well our first thanksgiving was a success! The kids did great and I was able to finish their turkey onesies just in time!! Unfortunately, we didn't have a huge turn out as one of my cousins was in a state championship, but I suppose we will see everyone at Christmas. On the way home we stopped at Grandpa and Grandma Jankord's house. Siddalee showed off her sitting skills. She has such a straight, strong back... she's so proper when she sits. Max is still working on it :) I didn't get a good picture of both their turkey outfits but we'll definitely get one on the real thanksgiving!

First things first:
Finish Turkey Onesies
Siddalee's Thanksgiving tutu
Make Siddalee's Zebra onesie for pictures.
Make Max's Tie onesie for pictures.
Long Term Goals:
Organize craft "room" -Use formula canisters to organize buttons, markers, scissors, etc.
Gather ideas for 1st birthday and bathroom (summer projects)
And in the meantime I will squeeze in my master's assignments ;) Does a graduate gpa mean anything? Hopefully not, sounds like I'm going to be distracted! It's funny how things change. All my crafty ideas and free time went to my classroom and now it's all on my own kids. Guess it's just a part of growing up :)

Wow, so this so far has turned out to be a failure. I guess I'm just not the blogging type, but I will try and get better.
Max and Sidda are now a little over 6 months old! I absolutely cannot believe how fast the time flies. They get to be more and more fun every day. They are ticklish, recognizing humor, and love to grab everything! Siddalee always pinches at my neck, which feels lovely as you can imagine. Max is quite the little trouble maker already, typical boy! He is grabbing everything and stealing toys from sister. If I give Siddalee a toy he steals it, if I replace the toy he took he rolls over and takes that one too. The other day he was using both hands holding the toys away from her. Siddalee isn't innocent either. One day she was sitting in the exersaucer and I was holding Max next to it. He started spinning one of the toys. She spun around quickly put her hand on the toy and glared at him. She did not want him playing with her toy. It was quite hilarious!
They are loving solids now! Max had a rough start, was getting to his tummy quick enough :) But now they love it, their favorite is definitely carrots!
We are getting their pictures taken in a couple of weeks... so excited. I'm holding off on Max until he starts sitting up a little better! Sidda has a zebra pettiskirt and I just bought material to make a onesie for her. I am planning on making a onesie with a tie for Max. Also have lots of new flowers/bows to assemble.
Attached are some halloween pictures... my little frog and flower! Max was not very happy that day, but Sidda was totally infatuated with her pumpkin!

Brett and I have been married 2 and a half years... time flies! We bought a house last year and are living here in Gardner, KS. He is working for a web design company in Olathe and I am teaching 4th grade at Madison Elementary.
Brett and I had been trying for almost a year. Finally, with a little help from the doctor, I was able to produce a positive pregnancy test! I knew right after conceiving that I was pregnant even though my mom told me there was no way, unless it was twins. Little did we know it was actually twins... at 6 weeks we did the first ultrasound. There I saw two little heart beats on the screen. When I got home I handed the picture to Brett and his reaction was, "Why are there two?" All I could do was laugh, and then with a fearful face he gave me a big hug! At 9 weeks we confirmed the two were growing and both at a perfectly healthy size! Our minds have finally adjusted to the fact that everything will be X2 and we are nothing but excited.
