I feel like such a dummy today! And I've had something happen recently that makes me really want to get back into praying more often and maybe finding a new church to attend! Yesterday I fell down our stairs, there are 13 of them and I think I walked down 2 of them before I fell! Someone was definitely on my shoulder! It was really weird.... We were heading down for the day and Charlie asked me if I had socks for Mady, I didn't so had to go back and get them, for her and me. They had just made it downstairs when I was coming down, I started down and still have no idea what happened! I don't know if I missed a step or slid on a worn spot of carpet or what but I was walking and the next thing a know I'm sliding down, bouncing on each step, I end up going down sideways so when I landed, it was on my left hip! It hurt but I'm okay, bruised and sore but I don't think anything is broken! But when I think about how much worse it could be, OH MY! What if I had one of the girls or what if Charlie and the girls were still on the stairs! It's almost like I forgot the socks on purpose so that Charlie and the girls could make it safe! I don't know, it's just scary! I will probably post pictures tomorrow

The weekend, only a little late

I hate winter and I hate cold! But with kids playing in the snow is almost inevitable! We went sledding on Sunday but those pics will come in another post

Mantha didn't like having to stay inside while daddy and Mady worked on our sidewalks

And daddy and Mady shoveling, well daddy is using a shovel... Mady has a sweeper attachment, it fit perfectly lol

Christmas '08

Christmas in our house was busy busy! December in our house was busy! We finally made an appt for Mady's 3 year pictures and it's been almost 2 months since her birthday! So we're cheating and doing both girls at once, Mad for 3 and Sami for 1! The gils had lots of fun, Mady was really into it this year... Sami liked the paper.

It's definitely getting easier to get the girls together for pictures, but one is always looking the other way!

And this is the shot I got when Mady saw that Santa had brought the presents

Daddy bringing Samantha down, you gotta love the hair!
