It's true - I'm a Twilight fan! One year ago - my wonderful friend Megan got me hooked. I made fun of people like me. Loved the books, then couldn't wait to watch the movies. I even conned Matthew into watching 2 of them with me. The most fun is when I got another friend into the books - and she ended up reading them in a matter of days. Then we watched the movies together so I could catch her up before Breaking Dawn came out. After that, we found out another of our friends had read the books and seen the movies. THEN - we got some more gals to jump on the wagon.

And have a fun movie night with the girls - with dessert/discussion afterwards. So fun!

What a fun weekend we had! My sister, brother-in-law and niece came down from Michigan for a visit - and to finally meet Miss Annabelle. It was so nice to have visitors and to do some fun things while they were here.

On Saturday my sister and I took Lucy and Tallie to Disney on Ice. The girls had a great time! Pictures (hopefully) to come later - I'm a little slow at most things now since I don't have much time to do anything! I'm in pjs most days. If you want to see some pics of their visit, visit my sister's blog @ . She's more on it than I am.

So one rough thing that happened this weekend was Lucy woke up Saturday night around 10:30 with croup again. :( She also developed stridor as well. Our ped called in some steriods for her - Matt bundled her up and kept her on the porch to breathe in the cold air until we got her the meds. Poor thing - she is so congested now - coughing and so stuffed up with watering eyes. But thankfully the steroids are working and she can breathe better. Now we are working extra hard to keep her away from Annie so that she doesn't get sick. Prayers are always appreciated!

Great news though - and we're hoping it keeps happening! - Annabelle slept from 8pm-6am last night and went back to sleep until 7:30 am. So nice! She woke up so happy and sweetly smiling. She is such a sweet baby and will coo and "talk" to you. But she gets super tired easily. Trying to figure out this little one. She can be sweetly smiling at us, we'll pick her up, and her razor-like fingernails will run wild and she'll be scratching at us. Thus, the overtired state. And wow, does she get mad!
