Friday update on Saturday again

Whew! It has been a crazy couple of days. We had a visit from our friend Lily and her mom Sarah yesterday. Then I was off to drop my stuff off for our semi-annual Moms of Multiples garage sale. Then we got to stay and shop before it opened to the public this morning. I got a few cute outfits and yes, I needed more. We don't have enough! I also got a big plastic yard slide for $25 and an extra bouncer for upstairs for $10, but overall I was pretty disappointed. I only spent $70. Then I worked at the sale for a few hours today and again was disappointed in the turnout. There was a ton of stuff left over. Most of my stuff did not sell. I'm not sure what the deal was but it will just go into the next sale.

First off, Z has great news!

He earned his Sparky Vest from Awana!! He memorized 2 scripture verses plus some other things and he is on his way to getting his first badge. He was so proud of himself and so are we! Yay Z!!

Here he is playing his DS.
And before you ask...
I have no idea why.

And then this is the look I got after he saw the flash

And thank you so much to all the comments of encouragement about his school. It will get better, I know this in my head, but it is hard for my heart to go through it with him. We went to Cici's Pizza together today for his special outing. I let him play games and he wasted most of it on those stupid crane games. You can't convince him that he won't get it and I didn't even try. Because maybe he is the kid that finds the secret to those things, so who am I not to let him find his true calling.

On to the girls, here is how tummy time is going.'s not really

After I took the picture Olivia lifted her head for a half a second but for the most part they hate it. Oh well, we have time.

Their new favorite toys

They suck on their little hands constantly! And they are starting to drool. It is pretty funny because they don't exactly know that they are sucking on their own hands and they kind of catch it on the way by and then loose it. Abby actually sucks on her palm. I tried to get a picture of it but she is pretty fast. This was the closest I got.

And look how well they are sitting up!

I will start with Olivia this week since I usually start with Abby. She wakes up in the best moods! She just smiles the biggest smiles at us. And wiggles around as she is trying her best to coo at us. She is almost there. She "talks" all the time but not right at us as she is smiling. She was in a great mood one day this week, so I took advantage of it. I got a ton of pictures of her, but here are some of my favorites.

This is how she smiles all the time now. With her little nose wrinkled up

Don't touch my bling, man!

Now for Abby. She is mostly Abby to me now but still Abigail to Gary. She must be growing cuz she slept a lot of the days away this week. She is waking more during the night too. She is reaching for her toys under her floor gym! And she is cooing up a storm at us. She cries less and gripes more when she wants something. She still only shares her smiles sparingly, so when you get one it is special. She is a wiggle worm! Always moving and squirming so I could hardly get a good picture of her this week, but I managed to get a few.

This is how she is in most of the pictures I have this week

But once again I got one that is pretty good of both of them.
They looking at Z who is over to the side trying to make them laugh.

And I leave you with the real reason I couldn't blog yesterday and today

As usual, excellent pics.
YAY! for Z and his Sparky Vest!!
and I can tell you why he puts the bucket over his head. it's cause the DS is light sensitive - for lack of better words - and the kids can see the screen better when in darkness. I am a veritable cornucopia of useless information like that.

I LOVE the bucket on the head!! Z is so special to us we love having him go to church with us and play! :) As long as you post those cute little faces who cares if its Fri, Sat, Sun, or even Mon now I might get upset if its Tues, or Wed
