The Scarlett girls say the darndest things

One night Abbey was taking a bath and Maddie had to go potty. After she was done I got the "Mommy come wipe me!!!" call. So I went into the bathroom, took care of Maddie's business and as I was standing up I was squirted in the face by Abbey. She was standing up in the tub and spitting water out!! I gave her the lookd of DEATH. She looked mortified and said "I was being an elephant."

Maddie was brought to my class at church from the nursery because she had to go potty. I could tell by her breath that she had just had crackers. I said to her "did you have crackers today? You are so lucky, I wish I could get crackers in my class." Maddie said " Mommy when you get small like me you can get crackers in nursery too."

It was bed time and Maddie already had her jammies on. I told Abbey to go to her room and put her jammies on. After a bit of time went by, I started down the hall to check and see if Abbey had her jammies on. I heard the girls playing. So, I continued down the hall, gearing up for a good yelling :). As I got closer this is what I heard: Abbey - "I love you Maddie" Maddie "I love you too Abbey". Well no yelling that night, both girls got a big kiss from Mommy.

What life is all about

Life has been so stressful lately. Mike started a new job. He is towing cars and while it should get super busy when the winter right now it is slow, very, very extremely slow! Always worrying always stressing about making ends meet SUCKS! But then you have a wonderful day and life is great and it doesn't cost a dang on thing!!! Today I had a full house. I was watching three friends children. I watched (including my girls) 4 four year olds, a 2 1/2 year old, an almost 6 month old, and a 2 month old. I thought I'd go crazy, but everyone played so nice and the babies took turns sleeping and eating so I wasn't over whelmed at all :)

Here are the kids after lunch...this is what life is all about. This is what brings a smile to my face and makes it all worth it. Times may be tough but my girls are happy and healthy, and that's what make me happy :)

Halloween '09

Maddie was a ballerina. She twirled and danced all day. Our friend Stacie is an amazing photographer and she took pictures of the girls this year at a park here in Lincoln. Check out her website to see the girls pics. They are AMAZING!
Abbey was a princess. She said she was Cinderella before she got her blue dress
Mike and I went as Bikers....pretty convincing huh? The funny part is that we didn't have to buy anything for these costumes! Mike drew us tats, we were representing the IE in So Cal.


Pumpkin Carving

Mike and the girls carved pumpkins this year. Mike asked the girls what they wanted their pumkins to look like. Abbey said she wanted a mean pumpkin and Maddie said she wanted a happy pumpkin.
