Not gonna apologize

So normally this is when I would feel super guilty for being LAME and not blogging anything in over a month, especially when I was behind a month ago as well, but not today.  I will give you excuses [school, being busy, stress out the wazoo, responsibility, and for the past 2 weeks my ENTIRE family has been trying to survive a deadly (or at least it feels like death) cold], but I won't apologize.  :)  This is my blog and its mostly for my memories and so I am not gonna feel bad for the month break.  It was much needed.  You wouldn't have wanted to hear me whining and venting about how hard my life is anyway right?  Though I, and the rest of my family, except Kate, are all still sick and pretty miserable.  Kate is thankfully better, she got it first.  I would probably be better except I got ear and sinus infections after I started to feel the tiniest bit better.  Yes I realize that I am not 6 months old and I have no idea why I got an ear infection, its like the 2nd one I have ever had.  Kinda crazy, and painful.  But did I mention that I am not gonna whine?  Because I am not.  This isn't whining right?...

Anyway, because I still don't feel great I am just going to post pictures with little bits of caption to tell you what we are up to.  I am not going to cover the past week, because it was busy and I have a couple hundred pics to go through just from the last week and I am not up for that yet, but I will catch you up through mid-April!  Can't ask for more than that right?

Lots of exhaustion
A trip to the Zoo to celebrate the fact that both girls are staying 'dry' through the night regularly!  Woohoo!  Haven't had a wet bed in over a month! 

 LOTS of fits thrown.  Isabel is the reigning Queen, add on top of that all of us feeling sick and there has been lots of crying at our house...just what a sick mommy needs right?

Due to the great weather, we have tried to spend as much time outside as possible (when we haven't been too sick!) to enjoy it before it gets crazy hot

 We have had lots of time with cousins over to play


 Her friend Cecelia had a fairy birthday party --She had SOO much fun!

 My mom came to town for a day and brought my GG's quilting frames so we could tie the quilt I made for Kate
 Due to all the congestion Kate spent alot of time sleeping in the swing, bouncer, and car seat

 Kate loves playing with her toys and has gotten very good at grabbing them
 Katie on her finished quilt

 Kate turned 4 months and got to start eating baby food!

 The girls decorated a birthday cake for me
 I had a GREAT and quiet birthday.  Matt got me a Kindle and it is the best b-day present EVER.  I have been reading SO much and I love it.  I also got to joyride in my bro-in-law Tommy's new car (a BMW 3 series convertable), and that was SOOO fun!  He's lucky that I ever brought it back!  And I am lucky that I didn't pass any cops...
 I know that I am leaving out a lot, but c'est la vie!

You have the cutest kids EVER! Thanks for blogging and I hope you are feeling better soon!

Hooray for "not apologizing!" (you get quotes because you actually did kind of apologize while not apologizing. Anyway...) You owe us nothing! We are privileged to partake of your cute hilariousness and your family's fabulousness so we can take it when we can get it.


WHY DO YOUR BODIES HATE YOU, PEOPLE??? You are sick all the dang time. Sad face. I'm sorry things have been crappy, but I'm glad to hear ya'll seem to be on the up and up. I have to admit, though, that your statement, "Yes I realize that I am not 6 months old," made me laugh right out loud. Love it, love you, the end.

I love the quilt you made. Very cute. I hope you feel better soon!

I'm so glad you updated and there is no need for apologies when you take 1 month breaks from blogging cause I am the same way!!! It's just fun to see all the pics that you post. I love how your little girls always have braids in their hard, they are beautiful just like their Mom!! I can't wait to put glitter on my little girl...ha ha...she will start young. :) Love you Jenny!

I pretty much just want to echo the above comnments, but I want to add this:
I adore the fact that you take pictures of Isabel in the middle of her tantrums. That is just too funny. I feel like she and Jack must be giving each other pointers on how to make sickness more miserable for everyone involved. :)

I don't know if it's hormones (I blame everything on hormones) or that I'm just feeling super sentimental on account of my being a sap, but, your fam is just so stinkin beautiful that it makes me cry. I'm sorry that you are sick, but I'm happy that you guys are going through it together. I love you, friend! Give your girls huggie-wuggies from their AuNtie Kellee :)

Wow. Lily is so your daughter in that pink-dressed fairy picture. I'm sure she'd be making up her own commercials at this point if she watched enough TV.
