My Darling Niece and Nephew

Danika on her blessing day.
Kaimen on his blessing day.

This last Sunday, my sister and her husband blessed thier darling little babies. These babies are little miracles. For those of you who don't know my sister, she was in the hospital for about 7 weeks before delivering her twins, Kaimen and Danika. They were born at 27 weeks, and have had quite the journey. We feel very lucky and blessed that she made it that long. They were in the NICU for about 3 months, and are finally home. They are both on oxygen, but doing amazingly well. We had the blessing at my mom's house because they can't be out in public. It was a wonderful day. We feel so lucky to have them as a part of our family and our lives.

The Family Fun Van

Each Thursday, I take my kids to an elmentary school where they have tons of fun activities for my girls. The "Family Fun Van" goes to a different elementary school in mesa each day of the week. It's sort of like a mini preschool. My kids always have a ton of fun.

They have a new theme each week, and read stories that relate to that theme.

Bailey loves music and movement time, even though she doesn't always dance.

At the end of the day, they get to make a craft and go home with a free book. I'm always a fan of anything free. Here are a few of the books we've gotten. I know how hard it can be to find stuff for the kids to do. This is just one idea.

Bailey loved dressing as Belle. She thought she was pretty hot stuff.
Livvy was a little poodle. Doesn't she look cute?

Marcus and I TRIED to loook like John McCain and Sara Palin. At least it was better than our attempt last year when we dressed as Rosie O'Donell and Donald Trump. When we went trick-or-treating with Bailey, some people loved our costumes, but Obama fans weren't as much in favor.
