Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving has brought a whole new meaning of being thankful this year to our family. Having Cadey and Chloe in our lives has brought such joy and excitement every month as they grow and bringing new life to all of our holidays.

We have also realized this month how thankful we need to be for our health. A couple of days before thanksgiving my sister in law Terra found out that she had melanoma skin cancer at the age of 24. What we thought was going to be a quick removal of a little mole we came to find out the cancer has already spread to two of her lymph noides. With the surgery being a little bit more invasive then planned we decided that we would need to change our Thanksgiving plans and head up to Apline on Thursday to have dinner there so Terra could rest and still be a part of the Thanksgiving dinner. We are all praying for her that they were able to remove all the cancer.

Grandpa Don came down for a couple of days from Vegas to spend the holidays with his favorite grand daughters. He cooked us up an amazing feast Friday since our turkey didn't get cooked for Thanksgiving.

We are so blessed and thankful for our family, friends and of course our biggest blessings of them all is our two little turkeys.

8 Months Old

My baby girls turned 8 months today. I cant believe how fast time goes by. I am so excited for them to experience their first Thanksgiving and to see what exciting milestones they reach this month. My personal goal is to get them sleeping in their room. I know your probably thinking that should have already happened but its just so much easier to have them right next to me in our room. It only takes a second for someone to cry before the other one joins in. So to be able to jump on a situation without going down the hallway saves me so much time and the hope that maybe someone might sleep through a feeding.

Rainy weekend and a Costco run

Love this fabulous rainy weekend. Its so much fun bundling up the girls into their cozy outfits and cant forget to mention their cutest beanies ever (thank you gma Teri). This weekend was pretty laid back with lots of movies and of course a warm fire. We did have to do a Costco run today for diapers  (I wont even mention how many we go through) and the girls got to sit double in the awesome shopping carts that fits twins! It was the cutest thing ever. I will just let the pictures do the rest of the talking! Enjoy

We got a tooth

Cadey got her first tooth today! So excited for her. I am hoping Chloe isn't to far behind so they can have matching teeth.
