Am not a fan...

Not sure what happened to my blog press app, but it stopped working. Then I couldn't find it in the app store to reload. Soo, I'm trying out blogger's mobile app. Not a fan. It won't let you put the pictures where you want them. And that's so part of my blog M.O.

So the search is still on.

Poor child has Mama's fro

After her bath, Temp has some crazy curls. It flattens out after about 12 hours or so.

This picture don't really do it justice. Last time she had a bath, Teagan said, "I don't like her hair like that." And then tried to flatten it out. I love it and if it really is like mine, come puberty, I'll know how to help!

Come to Mama

Have you ever heard of an iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaner? Basically it's a vacuum cleaner that vacuums all by its self. Uhhhh, yes please!

Well while Mav was on extended stay at Mimi's and then came back, I really realized how much dog hair accumulates and I really needed to vacuum/sweep everyday. Did I? No. But I needed to! And I realized how much I enjoyed a clean floor! It made me feel like the house was clean. (even if it wasn't! and usually it isn't!) So I put one of these bad boys on my Christmas list. My niece asked in utter disbelief/disgust, "you asked for a vacuum for Christmas?" She's so 14!! When she's old, she'll understand.

Since it's services we're needed now, I got to open upon receiving!

Here's a crappy phone pic of it in action!

So far I love it! I haven't programmed it yet to start automatically. I just move it around. It does a great job with the pet hair and very easy to clean! And right now it's fun to use and giving me motivation to keep the rest of the house clean! Like a new pair of tennis shoes to motivate you to workout! Maybe I should add THAT to my list!

I really don't have a "list". Price wanted me to make one and it basically turned into a honey do list. He looked at it and told me to go to bed, bath and beyond and pick out my own pot holders and door rugs and he was not going to paint my baseboards.

Alison shared something she heard on a podcast or something. I liked it and it's resonating in my ears and just in time.

Instead of spending/stressing about Christmas, do the following four things:

-Worship Fully
-Buy Less
-Give more
-Love ALL

It *almost* makes me want to send back the vacuum.

On a serious note, the girls are excited to buy presents for a girl or boy that might otherwise not get presents. We'll see how that goes. Last year we took unwrapped presents to Crystal's Santa party and Presley had a few issues. But this is the child who has a hard time dropping things off at the dry cleaner. She did pray for the kids who don't have parents tonight. So maybe she getting it. But she also gave thanks for "Jesus dying on the cross for our sins" and then asked, "what are sins?".

On that note, I think I've covered everything!

Except that my littlest baby is still happy!

And you are probably happy this post is officially done!

My three baby girls

I finally got all my pictures on one hard drive (backed up by another hard drive) and neatly organized and accessible. I even downloaded pictures from my little camera finally! I'm on a roll! (yeah right, but it's so nice to be able to check things off your to do list!) Ironic because this post has been a draft since December 6th.

I've been wanting to do this post for a while. Here's all my babies as babies.

Presley Anne ~2 weeks old

Teagan Astelle ~3 weeks

Temple Adeline ~2 weeks

Right hand kid

Presley is ready to 'babysit' whenever and wherever!

The only problem is that usually she won't leave well enough alone. She wants to move her around and turn her this way and that. Way too brave for me to take an eye off of her. Especially sitting in that chair. Temple is surprisingly tolerant of the girls holding her. Good thing because they can't get enough!

And here's multitasking at its finest. I was like, uhhhh.
