Bye Nana or Banana?

The twins don't say banana, they say bana.  We noticed yesterday when Nana was here that "bye Nana" sounds just like "banana".  Have a listen and I hope you enjoy!

Potty Training

The kids moved their potties out of the bathroom so they can be closer to their books.  Potty training is going to be fun with these two!

Gingerbread Train

 Nicholas and I went grocery shopping this afternoon and we found a ginger bread train!  He was so excited   that we had to put it together as soon as we got home.  Nicholas and David were decorating champs!  He was helping David put the wheels, decorations, and icing on the train.  Katherine, on the other hand, only wanted to eat the icing and candy (girl made from my same cloth). After I took her candy away, she started after the train.  Luckily, the boys were almost done and we were ready for pictures.

Santa 2011

The kids were not terrified of Santa this year, but they still didn't want to sit with him.  Hopefully, next year we can get a picture of them with Santa.

Happy 2nd Birthday!

Happy 2nd Birthday Nicholas and Katherine!  It has been an amazing 2 years and I can't wait for what next year brings.

Family Pictures

We finally got our family pictures taken!
It was such a beautiful day and the kids didn't catch on to what we were doing until half way through.

Sequins and Airport Security

 I spent the better half of this week in Nashville.  It was my first time there and I dressed the part and had an absolute BLAST!!  

Out of all the dozens and dozens of times I have flown, this never occurred to me until it happened...

***Don't wear a sequin covered shirt (especially under a sweater) to the airport. ***

It started off like any other travel day.  I got up, went to grab some breakfast with some customers and off I went to the airport.  I get there REALLY early (Note to all: Nashville is a very small airport), so I mosey to the security line, unload my computer, take off my belt/shoes, and take out my liquids.  I did however forget my sunglasses were on top of my head.  My things are already through the belt scanner and the security guy said it would not be a problem to wear my sunglasses though the body scanner...I'm thinking "we have to take gum wrappers out of our pockets but I can wear my sunglasses on my head?"

So I go through the scanner, step out and wait to see my picture, and this is what I see...

Immediately, the security guard says, "You need to wait here for just a second."  I quickly realize that it my sequin covered shirt I have under my sweater.  I try to explain this by showing them...Bad idea!!!  I quickly got scolded and told to, "Stay put, don't move and keep your hands by your side."

I should be laughing at this point but I just couldn't help myself!  I was worried about my sunglasses and it was my shirt that set off the alarms.  So they proceed to ask me if I would like a private room for my pat down.  Mean while, I'm still laughing and decide to venture to the transparent cube for my airport pat down.

Needless to say,  I passes the physical part.  

So what did we learn?  Don't wear sequins to the airport.  I'm sure if I were the security guard, I too would have been shocked to someone come up covered in yellow boxes on the scanner, especially in Nashville.

Mommy and the kids

Thank you Nana, for finally getting a picture of me and the 2 kids!  I just love this one.  We were relaxing on the floor.  Kate was laying on me and Nic was laying on Kate.  I'm going to have to keep this picture handy for when they get older!
