Taylor's been crawling for about 3 months now but I haven't documented it yet! So here she is! I didn't have to coax her to start crawling towards me for these pics...usually as soon as she sees me after I've been out of sight for a while (like 2 min) she'll start whining and come towards me.

At the park...

We spend ALOT of time at the park. And Kaylin spends ALOT of time on the swing!

Taylor like the swing too but she mostly likes to chew on whatever she can.

Play- Doh!

QUIT waking up my babies!!!!

Here's a pleasant reminder to all the delivery people who keep waking up my girls during naptime. Lets see if it works.
This was super simple. I just used a piece of scrap glass, modge podged some scrapbook paper to it, painted on the words, glued on a ribbon, buttons, and jewels, and used some leftover material from my coffee table to hang it!

Ghillie suit....what??

What the heck is a ghillie suit, you ask? Well, see for yourself! This is Nathan's ghillie suit.
And now your probably wondering "Where do I get one of those?!?" Well, you have to make it...and its loads of fun, let me tell you!!
First you get an army uniform (aka "ACU's") and you use some very stinky "Shoe Goo" to glue some fish net to them. Then you get about a bazillion little stringies of various shades of green and you tie them all over the fish net. Be prepared to spend HUNDREDS of hours on this part of the project...and call in some help from your parents (Thanks mom and dad for spending your vacation helping us with this! Love you!)
After you get the stringies tied on, you'll need to spray paint it various shades of brown to get the right tone so no enemies will spot you when your hiding with your gun. After you think you have the right tone to your suit, you'll need to roll around in some leaves and twigs to disguise yourself even more! And its as easy as that!!

Nathan is in Sniper School right now. That's what we had to make the awesome ghillie suit for. Its a month long course and we got lucky because they brought some guys here to teach it instead of Nathan having to go to Fort Benning, GA. So I am happy about that but he leaves early in the morning and doesn't get home til after 7 every night! UGH. I'll be so glad when its over.

Coffee table redo!

Here was my least favorite piece of furniture we had. Nathan got it before we got married. It didn't go with my decor at all! So I fixed it!
First I added batting and a cute, cute fabric to the top.
(Please ignore the booger hanging out of Kaylin's nose) She thought this was her "fort" when I had the top up on chairs so I could attach the fabric.
Don't worry no babies were hurt during this project...even if she was sitting a couple feet away from some very dangerous things!
Here's the fabric all attached!
I used about 4 and 1/2 cans of white spray paint on the bottom and then I glazed it.

So excited the coffee table is no longer an eye sore in our living room!!!

Here's my newer, shorter hair. Nathan conned me into it...
but I'm glad he did.

Baby Phat!

Taylor had her 6 month appointment today (ya, I know she's like 7 1/2 months biggie). She's a whopping 20 lbs. 10 ounces!! This girl LOVES to eat....she scrounges for leftovers anywhere she can! Most times when she's missing from sight, she can be found under Kaylin's table eating crumbs.....

.....or digging through the trash, licking pudding cups.
{Kaylin, my skinny minny, weighs 25 lbs....5 lbs more then her 'little' sister}

Children's Museum

Here's a bazillion pictures of the girls at the Children's Museum. Enjoy!
