Peyton's 1st.....

TOOTH finally broke thru her gums. There is only one so far on the bottom but I am sure there are more to follow.

Katelyn is still drooling up a storm and has a runny nose but no teeth yet.

As soon as the pearly white is high enough I will post a picture!

Eat Your Veggies....

If my veggies were this cute I would eat them everyday!

The twinies are "Two Peas in a Pod" for Halloween. Well they actually have their own Pods but I am trying to be creative. These pictures are from "Boo at the Zoo". Basically what we did was walk around the whole zoo and get candy from the different stops. It was OK but the twinies could have cared less. Still we did it!

So I have read three books lately that are worth mentioning. The first was The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. Such a great book and if you have the time I really really suggest it. The other two are The Body Farm and The Tenth Justice. I am becoming a reader. I like to lay in bed at night with the twinies in bed and the TV off and just read. If you have any recommendations for good books, send them my way!

We Love the Razorbacks!

So the twinies are learning fast that they, no matter where they go in life, will be Razorback fans. Since Arkansas has no professional sports teams, the Razorbacks are the next best thing. They are the college team.

I am adding a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Life in the Slow Lane

So I am Day 3 into my new job. I am working for the Arkansas Department of Education. I work in the Professional Licensure department. So I am a Government worker and it sure is nice. My "commute" if that is what you call it is only about 10 miles from the house. And it takes me about 10 mins. to get to work once I drop the twins off at the daycare, which is right around the corner from our house. I love it.

I am a little home sick but I am adjusting well to the new area. People here are very friendly. Clint keeps telling me it is because we are in the south. I talk funny to most people here and they know instantly that I am not a native Ar-Kansan. Clint's job is going pretty well. He had to go on a business trip to Dallas already but it was a short over night thing so that wasn't to bad. Plus I like the 25% off we get on everything at Dillard's!

The twins are full of energy. They can now roll over from tummy to back and then from back to tummy. Both girls are getting up on their knees but they can't seem to pick their heavy heads up from the floor to figure out the crawling yet. They are both squealers and sweet Peyton has learned to mimic coughing so she does this everywhere. She gets "sick" all the time and once she hears someone else cough, that is her que to get "sick". It is almost comical!

Mollie seems to be doing well in school. I talk to her at least twice a day on the phone. She is super excited to be Snow White. She has informed me that she needs no wig because her hair is just like Snow White (I think it is a shade to light but Oh Well).

I am still holding off on getting the twins costumes yet. It isn't as though I am not getting them one I really just have to find a place that has something I like.

I have learned how to navigate around this city and must say I feel pretty good when I have to find somewhere I have never gone to before. We are going to go to a Fall Festival this weekend so that should be fun. Boy I miss going to Graves Mountain Lodge with Jennifer and the kids.

Well that is all the news I have from the "big city". Until I talk or see you again, be safe and happy and embrace the day!

We Made It....

We made it to Arkansas 23 September 2007. Life there is nice and very much slower than any place around here. I am actually back in Virginia now, well at least until tomorrow when I go home. You all know the custody battle is raging. After spending the day in court, we will come back 11 January 2008. Mollie was appointed a Guardian Ad Litum that works in the best interest of her. So her Guardian (attorney) had done a home visit with Mollie and her father at her father's home, he lives with his mom and her "Domestic Partner" and he had visited with Mollie as well. I had talked to him on the phone and also taken pictures of our new house and all the new stuff around us. So we get to court yesterday, he recommends to the judge that Mollie be with me. However the judge does not agree. AHHHHH What The F*%#. So now I am on the hunt for the BEST Family Law Lawyer in town so I can finally get my baby home. I do get her for Thanksgiving and 1/2 of Christmas break but man I just want her home. If you know of a outstanding lawyer...drop me a line.....I need one BAD!!! We don't have Internet at home yet but I go to my sister-in-law's coffee shop for free Wi-Fi! I will be talking soon! Miss you all!
