Christmas Dresses

How fun is it to have TWO girls to dress up in matching Christmas dresses?? It's the best! I scored these red lovelies at the end of last year for like $10. I was pregnant and just crossing my fingers that I would have another girl so she could wear it. Ok there may have been a few other reasons....but this was s good one right?? And of course they are wearing some red ruffle headbands of mine, I think they top the outfit off just perfect, if i say so myself :)

And once again my smiley baby shows how much she HATES the camera and refuses to smile no matter how hard we try. And Chloe lets just say she was being "two." This is what she tells me when I ask her "why are you so big?" or " why are you being such a brat?" she so cutely replies "I two mom" yes..... yes you are.

I was having some fun with photoshop on these pics and I just couldn't not post all the vintage looking ones. But I was sad you wouldn't get to see the truly vibrant RED of the dresses that I love so much! so down below are the actual colors of the dresses sans photoshop!

ya seriously we took pictures for a half an hour and were late for church because i was determined to get a good one......looks like i lost.

FINALLY got one of ash smiling....sort of. And we were singing "itsy bitsy spider" in this one, still never mustered that smile tho. Also I searched HI and LOW for black patent shoes for Chloe to go with her dress. It seems everyone and their dog wanted some to go with their christmas dresses as well. Note to shoes prior to the week before Christmas next year.

My favorite girls! I love this picture it really shows their personalities. Ashley's ability to smile endlessly and on demand and be the happiest baby ever. And chloe's "ok mom if you're gonna take a picture of ash I HAVE to be in it and i will choke and wrestle her while refusing to look at the camera for 15 minutes" until this is the best picture we have. All the rest are chloe making ridiculous faces and throwing ashley around who is of course giggling through the entire ordeal. And that is usually exactly what it ordeal.

As I am sure I have mentioned before Ashley is always putting herself to sleep sucking on her favorite blanket, or teddy, or anything soft really. I just think it is so funny and cute to see her dead asleep with something hanging out of her mouth.

Chloe helping me decorate the tree. I sometimes miss having a real tree, I mean nothing compares to one really. But we got this fake one from my grandma B. and It is just the perfect size for our little house, and It reminds me of my grandma. I used to go help her decorate her tree, and she would pay me! ha ha Not because we were poor or anything, she just loved how excited we would get, she was the best, and I really miss her.
She was soooo serious putting all the decorations on. She loves the balls (good thing they are shatterproof) and loves to take them all off and put them back on all day long.

"I DID IT!" she was so proud! She kept putting them all on the same branch, at one point i think she had like 6 on there. then she would get mad when they would fall off or she couldn't fit anymore.

Ashley just rolling all over the place and getting stuck under the recliner....
....oh and being ridiculously cute while she is at it!

My huge baby, thinking she can sit up all by herself and grow up on me. I am not impressed.
She loves to suck on her toes.
My girls LOVE bath time. they usually get one in the morning and then again before bed. All I have to do is take Ashley into the bathroom and she goes nuts, kicking and squealing and clapping. They are definitely my water babies!

Oh I finally finished a bow holder for the girls that hangs on the back of the door. now there is FINALLY a place for them to go instead of scattered all over the house.

Chloe really loves coloring right now, especially with pens. ugggh. if she finds one she will draw on anything!!! and Ash is getting her first tooth! She hasn't been too cranky, just when she nurses. Aaaaaaaand she likes to bite. ouchy. I am just hoping it won't last long!

The girls with their favorite babysitter! Even tho chloe won't say your name I am sure she loves you most Tina!!

Look at that beauty! Man my sister got all the good looks in our family.....Al is ONE lucky guy!!

Sunday morning. I wanted to get a picture with Ashley too, but for some reason we can NOT get to church on time....and we have 1:00 church! I love this dress my mom got her for her birthday and I found her adorable ("belle shoes" as she calls them) at Walmart for $6!!

Ash is getting so big I can't believe it. It even crossed my mind that I need another baby....until I remembered how much fun it WASN"T being pregnant. ha ha but man oh man i LOVE this baby. have I mentioned she is the best baby ever? Because she is. I could snuggle her every day all day...oh wait I DO!

Roly Poly Ashley!! She is rolling over in the bath all the time now, I don't know how she does it without getting a mouthful of water, she is super sneaky!

I HAD to post this picture....she has the most hilarious bum i ever saw! she has a wicked roll right in the middle of her back and the longest crack imaginable! ha ha Regan says she gets it from me....poor girl.

I haven't posted video's on here for a while. Here is one of Chloe talking to Regan on the phone. She LOVES talking to anyone on the phone, it's hilarious.
The second video is rather long, so I won't be mad if you don't watch the whole thing. Just the girls being themselves this morning. and those "Belle jammies" ugggh I can't get them off of her!
