Long time coming...

It has been so long since I've posted on here..almost a year! Yikes! I've been inspired by reading a lot of other blogs, to start posting again. I have no laundry to do (how did that happen?) and the house is somewhat clean...I don't think it's ever "clean" anymore ;) Alex is watching Gnomeo and Juliet (cute movie) and Addison is rearranging the living, I really wish my camera was working right now, because it's really funny. I guess it just isn't quite right for her!

Over the last 2 years I have been on a quest to make as many things as possible myself. From household cleaners, to clothing, to food. I learn so much more everyday, and I have to say it's saved our family tons. 2 years ago I started by making my own laundry detergent. The girls were both born with sensitive skin, and I really couldn't afford to keep buying the special stuff. Making this has saved us TONS! I am in need of a new camera, my old one decided to die on me recently, so once I get a new one, I will post the recipes, with some pictures. Pictures are always helpful!

Well, while I don't have too much to do, I must go clean up the kitchen, and make my bed (I know, it's almost noon and I haven't done it yet, but, hey it's Saturday! :) Have an awesome weekend!

Snow Day!

Woke up this morning to it snowing like crazy! I told Josh he needed to call and say it was too bad and he needed a snow day, no such luck :(
My poor Alex was sick earlier this week, don't know exactly what was wrong, but she seems to be all better now! She is back to her fiesty self!
I finally got all our Christmas decorations down, our living room seems so empty now, I'm surprised Josh hasn't tried to fill it yet. I guess he hasn't been home enough lately to do so :)
We will probably be moving soon, not sure where yet, still weighing out all the options. While a little scary, I'm "trying" to put it in Gods hands, while I know He will take care of us, I still want to control things !
As Alexs toy just reminded me "There are so many things to do" (except Pooh goes on to say "learning, playing, and being friends with you!, my song ends with "laundry, dishes, and taking care of two!")
Playing in the tent her Abuelita got her for Christmas!

Helping mommy make cookies to take to nanas!

Hello?! Did you hear that I make great cookies?!
Cheerios are best on the floor! Obviously!

Almost rolling over!

All smiles on my tummy!

Alex must think her sister would make a great horsey! (No babies were harmed, I promise!)

 Off for now! Sorry such a lame post!
