What's the name of that show? "I hate my life?"

(Auntie Didi with Ana and Keira)
I've been trying to catch episodes of that show... you know... where the couple has twin 6 year olds and 6 - 2 year olds? Yeah. That show makes me feel awesome about my life. My friend, Mike, was horrified at the show... He kept saying, "What is the name of that show? 'Kill me now?' What?"

We're getting into the grove, here in The White House. We're learning to head off the meltdowns before they happen (and we tend to laugh when Keira cries... she has such a little button nose!). We now know that the key to make Ana stop crying is just Daddy... that and her lion. Keira will immediately cease crying when I sing "How much is that doggie in the window"... which is ironic, since most people cry WHEN I sing...

I went to the 2nd Annual Engineering party this weekend. I caught all the bugs between here and Jamaica Beach with my new car. The girls were great. They fell in love with Rex (looks like a young Santa) and Keira fufilled her dream of being the center of attention.

Nana and Oopa came to the house on Sunday for dinner, bringing enough clothes to last through their birthday. I know that Nana likes to shop, but I think that it must be said - if Nana didn't buy clothes, our girls would be naked.
And Matt... if you're out there... good luck with that cauliflower ear thing. That's nasty.

"BmmmMowMow" is Keira's exclaimation of protest. If she could talk, it would be "this is bullshyte. I want to touch the kitty. I don't want the bottle, so stop putting the frickin thing in my mouth."
Err something.
Big family news going on- Diane is officially in Midland. I'm happy to hear that she arrived there safe and sound with Murphy and Grandma in tow.
I have nothing witty to contribute to the world today. No other life updates.
I do have a cool link courtesy of Rob Orange:

I just need to let everyone know that I'm okay. There are 14k people onsite. We were safely locked in our building (on a day that I was going to leave early).
Keep Beverly's family in your thoughts.

All my dreams of a low rider

The transformation is complete. I bought a minivan. I tell myself that it is safe for the kids, but let's face it... it has an iPod adapter. Did I mention that I do not yet HAVE an iPod?

Follow up appointments...

Update -
Keira's heart appointment was great. Her heart is fine.
Ana's head appointment wasn't nearly as fun. We're going to take her to a genetic specialist and cranial/facial surgeon to see if she needs a helmet, surgery or nothing.

I'll update more when I have time *insert laugh here*

Boom goes the dynamite

Did you ever see that YouTube Boom goes the dynamite guy? I've been saying that phrase all day. I had a few friends come over this weekend to see behbehs and look at scrapbooks, etc. All and all a nice weekend. I'm WAY behind on my housework, but boom goes the dynamite.

Keira has a followup heart appointment tomorrow, just to make sure that everything is good. Ana's "big head" followup is on Tuesday. Her little body is only 3% and her head is 95%, so we need to track her progress.

Both of the girls are doing great. Keira started saying "papapa" and LOVES to sit up like a big girl. Ana found happiness with green beans, a blue balloon and Daddy coming home from his biking trip.

More updates after the doc. appointments this week!

I won the Internet

Congrats to me. I won the internet. I'm jumping right into 2007 with my very own blog (something all 9 year olds have been doing "since forever, duh").
Even though I don't seem to have time, I really (really) found it necessary to communicate my life and photos to a growing group of people. Growing - not fat... just... whatever.

I will post updates of the girls, Brad and (of course) our baby kittehs.

So, good luck to you future constant reader.
