I can HARDLY STAND to write this post!

Oh my goodness. I feel sick... I can hardly write this post without being utterly disgusted and freaked out!
Below is the nasty creature I found on Lydia's bedroom wall!
One thing I have never been to fond about out here in Kentucky is the life size bugs they have!
They freak me out. Ok, so I already have a fear of spiders..but I can eventually smash, vacuum or get them out of my sight sooner than later.
When I saw this I just about DIED!
I literally started wimpering and sweating bullets. I didn't know how in the world I was going to get rid of this incredibly ugly thing.
On the other hand I had NO IDEA what it was???!!
So not knowing what it was or if it was poisonous (spelling?) or not made the situation that much more scary.
It was huge and had a million disgusting spider legs, having the ones closest to it's ends a lot larger and bulkier than the rest..yuck yuck yuck!
The worst part though is when I was trying to come at it with a cup it sprang up on all legs and curled itself up like a hissing scorpion!
So I realized I had to call in reinforcements because there was NO WAY I was going to be able to get this monster withough completetly losing it.
Longer story short, two of my really good friends, lauren and Cherie, that fortunately don't live that far from me came over in an instant and helped calm my nerves. Although one said it looked like a brown recluse (spelling?) !! Ya, that was not great news to hear.
In the end one of the maintenance workers for our apartment had to come get it and thank goodness he did because I'm sure it would've taken us quite awhile to get up the courage to kill that thing.
Sorry for the pics of this nasty thing, I can't even look at them or else I start freaking out. Oh and the guy said it was a millipede and that it was not poisonous...I don't know about you but I hope I never encounter a millipede again if that's what they look like. Sheesh!
I also have to add that Cherie stayed after and helped me move furniture and vacuum every corner of lydia's room, just to put my mind at rest that there would not be another creature hiding in her room, poor girl. I just feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends who are there for me, even if it is just a giant, disgusting, hissing nasty millipede.

To end on a lighter note though, here is sweet lydia eating her "juthes" as she calls it. We love to make green smoothies and lydia absolutely loves them!

Funny Sunday and Flower Headbands!

Ok, so this blog is being really stubborn right now and not letting me delete certain pictures, or write where I would like to. SO instead of getting too frustrated and not ever blogging I'm just going to finish...even if it is frustrating on my end. So sorry this isn't's my crazy computer. (This is why I don't blog as much as I would like...because it never works when I do it...sigh...anyways.. ):)
I would like to start by giving updates about sweet Emree.
She is getting so big lately...literally. She is still in the 97% for weight and heighth weighing in at 19lbs 9.5 ounces
She has the most kissable cheeks ever!
She loves her food. She sits in her bumbo and while tapping her one leg up and down, holds her mouth wide open even if I don't have a bite ready for her. So cute!
She is now rolling all over the place and eventually gets where she wants to go.
She pushes herself up on all four but doesn't quite know what to do from there...she ends up just scooting herself backwards.

She absolutely LOVES her older sister! She giggles and squeals whenever lydia gets all up in her face and talks to her. I can tell these two will be the best of friends already.
Emree is always so happy and is such a calm, sweet baby.
She has lots of smiles for everyone and is growing up way too fast if you ask me.

Lydia experienced snow for the first time these last few days. She abviously loved it and was getting frustrated that her hands would get so cold.
I loved how in one day the snow had melted away and when lydia woke up she wouldn't stop saying. "Where iiih go?" I tried explaining to her that snow melts when the sun comes out...but I don't think she quite understood yet.

HEADBANDS! So I have finally made some headbands for my girls and wanted to share some I have made. I figured after the second girl that we should have some cute bows to go along with their outfits. Sorry lydia for not making these sooner. :)

I saw this idea on's an oatmeal can turned into a headband holder.
I just covered it with cloth and it turned out pretty cute if you ask me, you can even put more bows and clips inside for more storage space.

Here is cute lydia modeling my headbands....oh.. and I made two of each one so that lydia and emree could match. I would have given emree a photoshoot too.. she was asleep though...maybe next time. :)

On another note, Lydia will be 2 Years old this friday! March 9th is the big day! I can't believe I have a toddler already. I am throwing her a "ladybug" themed birthday party in a couple of weeks and had found this cute idea for invites! I think they turned out pretty cute. :)

Pics of party coming soon! :)
I know this is kind of late, but I wanted to also post a little about Valentines Day.
Jd woke up early and made me a wonderful breakfast! We had blueberry waffles, English muffins with eggs and sausage, juice and fruit! It was delicious! He wrote me a beautiful card and gave me a bouquet of gorgeous flowers! (I'm sad I didn't get a picture of them before they died...)
These following pics are of a felt flower bouquet that I made JD. Me and a good friend of mine were going to surprise our husbands that day by showing up at school and dropping off our gifts and treats...Long story short though I burned my hand pretty bad and she ended up just dropping it off for me.
But here are pieces of the bouquet that once was... since Valentines Day our girls have been slowly plucking the flowers off. It looked pretty neat when it was one piece...but here it is never the less.
(He said he was pretty embarressed carrying it around all day with him at school.)
Mwa haha ha ha.

Oh I wanted to share one more story...sorry this is so long.
Lately Lydia has been loving church! Well, nursery that is. She talks about the "Toys" at church all morning and the whole way there. She has learned that when we say Amen at the end of prayers that that means she gets to finally go to Nursery.
Ha, it was cute because all through sacrament meeting whenever she heard the word "amen" she would perk right up and say, "Toys! Toys!" she would immediately start making her way out of the aisle.
It didn't quite help that it was fast and testimony meeting and we heard that word all through the hour.
