Back from Hawaii!

We spent spring break in Hawaii with some wonderful friends and had an amazing time! Tons of photos to share, but wanted to do a quick post since it's already been too long. 

Our amazing house on Waimanalo Beach
Mountains in the back, beach in the front!

Here is the sun coming up on the property... we were usually awake for that, which is what happens when you take your children on vacation :)

Hawaiian kisses from my littlest bub

At Disney Aulani, Avery gets a big Minnie hug

And giggles with complete happiness over Mickey!

Much more to come! Right after I find the time to upload about 200 more pics!

Little Green Girls

Bub sisters, in the same dress, both at around two and a half. Making mommy a little teary eyed...

Love and cherish these little pumpkins so much. Very different little girls, but both have such sweet, loving hearts and I just feel very lucky to be their mommy. I might be a bit emotional tonight because I have been looking through old photos...again. It's like the best time suck ever.

I don't think that I mentioned in my recent Maddie post that she is really into tea parties right now. She woke up most mornings last week and first thing out of her mouth: "wanna have a tea party, mommy?" It's hard to say no to such sweetness, am I right? OH please stay little forever my precious ones!!!1

Princess Potty

Did you guess right? Big girl is using the potty! We are practicing very hard and Maddie has done a great job so far. I got her some cute books about using the potty and "Princess Potty" is definitely her favorite. The book is hilarious too. She gets to wear a crown and decorate it just like the princess in the book! Bub the hub and I are so proud of her.

This is pitiful

Although I did not make my normal New Year's Resolution list this year (finally decided why torture myself, seriously), I did make one solemn vow that I was going to be so, so, so better about blogging. At least once a week, for sure. Well, F A I L. Just counted that I am 6 for 10. OK, 7 if I get this one done. Geez louise. Sometimes I really feel like I cannot get anything done without a strict deadline/someone standing over me. So, basically nothing for myself. I want this to change so badly. I'm going to start with posting this darn post and then coming up with four more in the next two weeks. Join me. So here, ten things that pop into my head. Here I go, BOOM.

1- I am singing the Frozen song, "Let it Go" in my head right now. Such an addicting refrain. Watched the Oscars the other night and still cannot get over how Travolta butchered Idina Menzel's name. Also, took Maddie to this movie last month, just the two of us, and she loved it. :P

2- Bub the hub and I were up at 4am this morning because we kept hearing strange sounds and it was freaking us out. Finally figured out that it was the sound of tree branches crackling under the weight of frozen rain. And then crashing to the ground. I'm tired.

3- Maddie Brynn has exciting big girl news that I am going to make the subject of my next post! Can you guess?

4- I have started making lists for packing for Hawaii! Officially less than 2 weeks away!!!!

5- Maddie randomly tells people everywhere we go that, "we are going onnnn Vay-CAY-TION!" with her arms up in the air and an emphatic jump. Seriously cracks me up.

6- The hub and I had such an encouraging parent/teacher conference the other day at Avery's school. She is doing so well. And everyone agrees, continues to be a complete teacher's pet!

7- Medically, Avery's doing a lot better this past month. We are still watching a bunch of things, but the doctor appointments had gone down drastically and I am very thankful for that.

8- I am ready for spring. Really, really, really ready. Really.

9- Do you know what a time difference it makes in the mornings when I don't have to bundle everyone up and heat up the car and throw on 3 layers of clothing? Like, a lot. Like, we could actually be on time to school.

10- Time to go to bed. But here's another pic from our family shoot that love.
