its a two posts kind of day...

don't tell me my kids don't look alike.


Whats the buzz all about??

well, I let B do it. i let him buzz off all my baby's hair. he's been sick and running a high fever and sweats so bad, so B took care of it. i can't decide how i feel about it. he looks too grown up and i'm just not sure if i like it. earlier i told B he wasn't doing it again til bubba was at least 5! i don't know, maybe it'll grow on me.
bubba didn't mind at all, surprisingly. he held so still and just watched all the hair fall. we used s #3 on the trimmer, but i think it looks ALOT shorter. *sigh*

Great GooglyMoogly! Thats alot of snow!

a ton of snow. i don't rememeber the last time i saw this much snow in real life. its nuts! this morning i was going to let bubba go play in it, but we took a nap. after the nap i went to get him all dressed and its too deep! it'd cover his whole head! anyways, enjoy the pics!

This is at 10am this morning:

completely off topic, but do you know what I HATE?

i hate when you take NYquil, and it makes you MORE awake. WTF is that about? its 1 am, i've been up since 6am yesterday---HELLO, i need sleep but i'm too restless. so, i'm taking out my boredom on my blog, and thus the readers of my blog.

so, just to clarify, some things that i hate:

-nyquil, apparently
-when one side of your nose is runny and the other is all stuffed up
- our old Explorer. i hated that thing.
- fish. fish anything. the ONLY way i eat fish is tuna, and only in tuna salad--the way my mama fixed it ;)
- how flippin' crowded walmart is ALL THE TIME! i dread going there
-how fast my kids are growing up
-the mouse that is cohabiting my closet. i want it dead, yesterday.
-when someone says 'whats up' then keeps walking without even listening to your answer. just say 'hi' if you really don't care whats up. i hate that
- when older people say things like OMG!, WTF?,'re not cool, you're old, you probably spent 5 minutes thinking the intials in your head before you even said it outloud...don't even bother.
-drew carey on the price is right
-that starbucks is so pricey...kinda kills the habit this time of year when funds are already 'snug'
-how long john silvers and kfc's food isn't really half bad, but the restaurants are always so dirty and the skeevy-ass people are working there. not comforting
- how magazine subscriptions send out 48 'FINAL NOTICES' when your subscription is about up. i'm pretty sure they start sending them out right after your first copy arrives....
-how tmobile charges you .40cents for every minute you go over...gets me every other month.
-when you go to the store for one thing, on your list, then realize you forgot it as you're buckling the second car seat. especially when that item is kleenex and you have a cold.
-how when men get sick they act like they are dying. hello i carried a baby for over 9 months, twice, then pushed two out, one completely natural with no medication. cry me a river about your damn scratchy throat. man up!
-clowns. they are creepy, not funny and completely unnecessary. i really hate them.

wow, thats a long list and i'm sure i could think of even more but i'm gonna try this whole sleep thing again

fun pics

just thought I would share a couple pics. these are all from about 20mins ago, lol. here are a couple of the boys in the bath tonight. isn't pooks sitting up SO well?? he's only 6.5months! bubbas newest thing is to put his whole face in the water and blow bubbles. hence the water running out of his nose!

i was at walgreens earlier and they had these antlers for 1.99. i thought they were so cute! i only bought one pair, because i know bubba, and i know that even if he has them on his head, he's still steal pooks too! this first pic, needs captions!! the looks on their faces are priceless! pooks is just adorable. he's at the age where he now just hams it up in front of the computer. then there is just a cute on of me and pooks. i tried to get one with bubba but he wouldn't sit still with me...oh well! maybe next time!

sorry i haven't been updating very regularly. i kinda feel like death warmed over. i dont know if its a sinus infection or cold or what, but i'm miserable. nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, headache, etc. anytime the kids sleep, i lay down. they are both doing good though. bubba has a runny nose, pooks is unaffected. they are definitely keeping me on my toes!

we did get our car, its an 07 pacifica in blue and i love it! it rides so nicely, its got a navagtion system and satelite radio--obviously the nicest car i've ever owned! the boys like it too. you know its a smooth ride when they fall sleep after about 10 minutes!

anyways, i'm gonna try to get out our christmas cards out this week, it just depends on how i'm feeling. here are a couple new pics to get you through the weekend ;)

Pooks in awe of the Christmas Tree

Rub a dub dub, two babies in the tub!

well it feels like forever since i last posted! sorry about the wait, with trips 'home', thanksving, drama, new car shopping, black friday, so on and so forth....we've been busy!

thanksgiving has come and gone and winter is here. we had our first snow last weekend, bubba was SO flippin' excited even though it was completely melted by noon. pooks is sitting up by himself now, weighing in at 18lbs 10oz. its great because now that he is a little older, him and bubba are starting to really interact. its amazing how much pooks looks up to him already. today we took pics for the Christmas cards, so friends and family, watch out! you'll soon have a holiday card with bubba and pooks!

in other news, we are getting a new car! holla! its about dang time, i hate the explorer. we're getting a Chrysler Pacifica on'll be either blue or silver, they are pretty sharp looking. it'll seat 6 people, have airbags in all 3 rows and is more fuel efficient since its a crossover. IT IS NOT A MINIVAN:) its a SUV but lower like a sedan, hence a crossover :)
anywho, on to the pics:

pooks in his sweater, all ready for thanksgiving

my kids...

...are growing up too fast!!!

pooks is 6 months old today. thats half a year. thats terrifying. i remember finding out i was pregnant again and it feels like yesterday. he had his first stage two baby food yesterday. he is starting to get really good at sitting up. he knows how to drink out of a sippy cup. he weighs almost 19lbs.

bubba got his first 'big boy' haircut today at the barber shop. the barber used clippers and i think i was more afraid than bubba was. he talks. all. the. time. he loves and recognizes football-even if its on the radio. he says no, and means it. he says cheese and smiles. he can spot a digger from a mile away. (seriously, even if its a mile away)he knows where his 'bell-bows' are. he can point out things that are blue.

i feel like my babies are no longer babies.

Mommy woke up when she heard me talking to my toes:She couldn't take a picture though, my brother was still sleeping!
