Random tidbits to fill you in

It's been awhile since my last post. It seems like nothing much has happened since then, but at the same time I feel as though life has been crazy busy.
Mackinley was sick for a bit and we totally missed out on Halloween this year. At least they are young enough that they didn't notice. I am stuck with my "stash" now that I didn't hand out. Maybe if I bury it deep in the cupboards I won't find them until next year and can save a few bucks. No, I don't want to eat them and I don't want my kids to eat them, or Jaron for that matter. Not that I'm anti-candy, I just hate having it around tempting us all.
Is anyone else excited for Christmas? I am soooo pumped!!!!! It is my all time favorite holiday of the year. I get to decorate next week. Maybe Mackinley will be a better helper this year. Macey definitely won't be.
Sorry I haven't posted any pictures. It seems like the thing to do. I still can't find my card reader for my computer to download them off my camera. I have pictures on my camera since May! It's a little frustrating! I am slowly organizing all the computer stuff since we got the new computer desks set up, but I still can't find the blasted thing. Hopefully soon.
I am continually amazed at how resilient kids are. A couple of days ago Mackinley fell on the elliptical and smashed her mouth up really good. Both her lips were huge! They are looking better. She bit through the bottom lip and it has scabbed up nicely. This is where I would insert a picture of Mackinley's lips.
Today she had an Ikea reusable bag wrapped on her wrists and over her head. She was going downstairs and Macey was heading upstairs. They somehow got entwined and fell down together. Poor Mackinley was freaking out because she couldn't see anything and didn't really know what happened and poor Macey got a goose bump and some rug burns on her face. I'm really not looking forward to the broken bone and stitches part of life, but my kids seem to be following in my klutzy footsteps. Maybe they'll grow out of it.
I am being summoned by the monster in the crib. I guess that is all for now!


  1. I love your posts Tiff. Your poor girls. I hope they get better! Can't wait until you post some pictures! Love ya!

  2. Lovin' the Blog Background!
    So fresh... So you :)
    OUCH! To the girls. That's cool to see that they're strong enough to pick themselves back up, and keep on going. {Even if they gain a few more bumps and bruises on the way! That's true determination.}
    Glad to hear you guys are coming along in the reno's department. Can't wait to see pics!

    P.S How's the Metformin treating you? I swear its worse than a laxative, for me :P Being insulin resistant doesn't help either!

  3. the girls are doing much better!
    Cassie, the metformin is coming along. I have good days and bad days. I find that certain foods don't sit well. Carrots, lettuce, and anything sugary. I'm sure there will be more!
    Hope it works it magic for you!
