Teeth, and tired

Kara popped out two more teeth yesterday morning, which means she has 4. She's working on two more on the top still, which has made for not good sleeping. That combined with staying up late on Friday to play Robo Rally with Ricky and Audrey means we're both exhausted right now.

Other than that, life goes. My mom and sister were over yesterday, which was nice. My girls sure love Grandma.

Church day today. Chloe is finally happy to go to Sunday School, and we can get Kara to stay in nursery at least half the time.

Mark is working on a 3D mini-competition last week and this week, which means even though he's home, he's not really around to help out with stuff. Its different that when he's at work though, because the girls still want to see him, and he still emerges every once in a while to get a drink or have meals with us. Overall, its good but a bit strange.

Lets see....

Kara is now 8 months old, and is still working on those two top teeth. Moving her to the crib is going slowly, but it is working well for naps.

Chloe is as hyper as ever.

Mark is still off work, and we're still waiting for EI to kick in. It has resulted in us getting a lot of chores done, though.

Not sure why, but I'm feeling a little down this week. I haven't been sleeping well (neither has Kara, that's part of the problem), and for some reason life just seems a little overwhelming. *sigh*

Right now my mom is over, and she's going to watch the girls so Mark and I can go out for coffee. Yay mom! :)

Kara now has two teeth on the bottom, and is working on pushing some through on the top. In two weeks she has gone from none to almost 4. Of course, it means she's cranky and not sleeping properly :P On top of that, we've decided its time for Kara to move out of our bed and into her crib. Here's hoping that goes well...

Tomorrow is a bi-election here in New West/Coquitlam, so we have to choose who to vote for AGAIN :P But we will vote.

10 years

I have been SO busy that I'm only just getting around to this.

Yesterday was November 4. It was also 10 years of Mark and I as a couple. Absolutely amazing, huh? I feel so blessed to have him as my husband, and friend. Here's to another wonderful 10 years!

Oh yeah, Kara also has a tooth!

Dragon goes rawr

Chloe was a dragon for Halloween. When I asked her at the beginning of October what she wanted to be, she said "a monster." So I looked up a few kinds of monsters on google, showed her some monster costumes, and she decided that a dragon monster was what she wanted to be.

My mom and I sewed the costume. Lots of people commented on it, saying how cute Chloe was. Unfortunately, Kara didn't go out with me and Chloe because she was napping.

Here's our sweetheart :D
