back home.

working on his follow through!!! ((nothing but net))

we are back home. back to real life.
we spent a great week in mnpls. so fun spending some time with chase and then the rest of the family when they got home from skiiing!!! but being away for almost one week is hard!
the boys had so much fun ((but by the end they were sick of having a twin around))
they flew planes, we went to pep motion, adventure park, played outside, swing swing swing, sand box, shoveled, walks, dressed up, golfed, hockey, snacks, colored and kept so busy! preslee was just as happy as can be watching and hanging out doing whatever everyone else was doing.
by the end of the week she was super sick. RSV. on the mend now!! YIPPE
drew had a great time @ the final five hockey tournament!! the SIOUX came away with the championship too. always makes it better when you come away with the trophy!

this week flew by.
we did not even do much @ all.
snow yesterday--thought spring had sprung. boy was i wrong.
girls night out! love those rare nights out with the girls!! love you all.
getting ready to fly out @ 6am.
did i overpack??!?!? ummm.. yes. i had out the small suitcase to start... but that did not last long. but i would rather have everything just in case.. you just never know what the weather can bring... oh yeah it is not MN! oh well the zipper is already zipped up!!! no turning back now.
my sister and i are on our way to see your parents in AZ! so excited to get there! i can not remember the last time my sister and i got to hang out with my parents with no children. it will be a perfect vacation. sun, family, hiking, walks, chatting, wine, pool, sight seeing, golf cart rides.
oh leisure world i can not wait to meet you!!!

every morning if dillon is up first.
((and usually is b.c preslee is my little sleeper. love how she sleeps in and
wake up with those dimples smiling @ me!))
we hear her playing and we go in to get her.
dillon wants in to her crib.
hugs her.
and says
"morning sissy"
and then is ready to play.
"row row row your boat" is his favorite.
the problem is that he thinks that it has to involve pushing preslee over. ((it is a park of the song when the boat falls over you fall in too)) not needed for her but he thinks that is fun. i think i got him now to just fall in the water by himself and he can get back in the boat and she will just wait in the boat for him. atleast until she can do it on her own.
there has been a few too many time where she hits her head! and then the rowing is over!
this is one of those times i just sit back and smile. b.fc i know that not all day will they love eachother this much. there will be times where i wish it was 9am again and do this all over again!
it is late and i have to get up in 4 1/2 hours! yikes to bed i go.



((this post was started last week))
even though we might not be the healthiest house on the block (or hwy) dillon and pres are still laughing! the tickle monster was out tonight and the both love her/him. we got the tickle monster book and mitts for christmas--and they love them. and i do too. love that both kids can not sit up @ the counter. i took this week as i was making supper. love to hear them laugh. and for them to
just be together. (no it is not always easy))
but the hard times are all worth it when you see them just be like this!

pres is changing everyday. she is getting better @ sitting, still hates baby food and i have all but given up all together. (well i guess i kind of have given up) i have now found she will eat mum mums!
so that works for me as long as she is happy! i could not love my little chunky monkey more! yesterday the kids and i got in the car with drew for a trip to lisbon. he had some appts with clients and my hs bestie betsy lives there. so it was so great to be able to ride along and hang out with bets and hayden for the day! pres was a bit out of sorts (teeth???) and dillon did not nap! but we made it through. thanks betsy for letting us come crash @ your house for the day! h & d had a fun day together. dancing to the wiggles, games, snacking and just being buddies! and hayden is expecting a baby brother.sister soon! we are so excited for them! so pres will have a friend soon too!!!
had a great MOPS today. first b.c dillon went to the daycare w.no problems. ((hallelujah)) drew is off @ curling. they tailgated tonight... the last i saw when the sun was out was 8 above. yikes. glad i am home in my nice warm house under my blanket.

today. march 11th 2011 it is friday night. i am glued to the tv. first time today i have had on the news and am watching all the coverage on the earthquake. i am shocked and amazed on how much damage can be done in such little time. so sad to watch all of the coverage. my prayers and thoughts to everyone in japan! had a girlfriend over today/tonight. we crafted all day! and i wish we had a ton to show for it. but in the middle of crafting we had naps, eating, bottles, dancing, tommy, playing and so many other things!!! grandpa came and picked up dillon and then went snowmobiling! he loved it! a perfect day to be outside. well until this storm hit!!! drew is in Grand Forks. stranded in the storm. he went to the SIOUX hockey game and was staying over--but was planning on leave early to get home for a curling tournament tomorrow morning. but that will not be happening now. the interstates are closed! as long as he is safe. i guess that is all that matters!
this week we had a
girls.kids morning here @ our house. so much fun. i was watching a friends little girl for a couple of days so i had 3 and 3 friends came with their kids. we had a house full. but so much fun. i love the days that we can get together. talk, eat and play. thanks girls! xoxoxo
so excited for the bachelor finale on monday.

we are headed to mnpls for the week. all hour of us.
we are watching chase while my sister and her husband take the older kids skiing! drew is seeing clients while we are there and i will hang with the kids! and i am TURNING 30. yikes stripes. maybe a fun night out with the 3 kids! we will see how it goes!!! excited to spend some time with chase. and then the other 2 for the rest of the weekend! miss them dearly!

the kids can not take baths together. using the bath ring it is perfect.
they have so much fun splashing and playing together. and so much more fun for me too

we had a rough week.
to make a long story short. sat it started. pres turned from my sleeping perfect little baby into a stay up all night crying baby. i really thought parents exxagerated when they said they were up all night. but by monday morning we were @ the doctor. nothing wrong! so we had 2 nights of about 2 hours of sleep each night. but made it though the days somehow.
but we have our little girl back today. napped normally. and went to bed no problems.
so happy.
for many reasons. knowing she feels better and sleep. sleep. sleep and more sleep.

speaking of sleep. i am of to bed!
