Another Ice Age

“Insanity now!”Can you believe it?  It’s 36 degrees here in South Ogden and is supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow.  “I have no response to that.”(Sorry about the crooked picture.  Too early in the morning for proper balance)


I am now the mother of twin 1 year olds, again.Happy 1st Birthday to my baby girls!I know people are always shocked at how quickly their kids grow, but I am mega shocked!  How in the world did they turn 1 already?  My babies are now in the year category of age counting.  In rebellion I will keep referring to them in their month age, hey, maybe even weeks.  Yes, my daughter is 120 months old, and no, I will not do the math for you.Introduction to  cake 101Not quite sure about the cake, but the frosting was completely gone in the end.The Party Animals!  A post cupcake picture, obviously._________________________________________________________________________Two conversations in which mommy was quite entertained…(Mommy watching Reed as he sneakily takes something off of the shelf and heads outside)Mom:  What do you have?Reed:  Can’t I just keep one secret to myself?Mom:  No.Reed:  Well, this one I’m keeping to myself.  (and hastily leaves the room.  Mom does not pursue, too busy laughin…
