mae mae is really into dressing up! this is probably one of my favorite of the dress up dresses that the girls own. thanks to tutu lady they have many of the really nice disney store dresses, you know the ones that are so nice you just want to hang them up and not let them wear because you are afraid they are going to ruin them! ;-) well, i used to do that when nani was little, but mae mae is the fourth daughter and let’s face it, by the fourth child you just kind of relax… or you are just to worn out to care!!

these little boys LOVE to play in laundry baskets (which works out well because with all of the laundry i have to do, there is always a laundry basket sitting around for them to play in!)!! it is the cutest thing! they climb in and just sit there! sometimes i will hear laughter coming from the family room and i will go investigate and this is what i will see… the boys sitting in the laundry basket just laughing with each other!! twins are awesome that way!

this was a multiply photo day and i couldn’t just pick one, but i narrowed it down to a series of three…
kawena’s freshly painted toes
kawena’s pretty little face (i love that she put on her sisters apron to protect her clothes)
kawena’s “art work” on hers and her sisters toes and fingers. kawena is on the right side while mae mae is on the left. can you tell she has a harder time doing her own nails?? the girls love to paint their nails and i am totally fine with it!! the only rule i have is that they have to be outside to do it!!

another one of those pictures that was taken as the last thing i did before turning of the lights and going to bed. everyone was already in bed so, i took a picture of my bodyrock.tv workout for the next morning! that is my nightly routine. i record the workout that i will be doing the next morning at 6:00 a.m. so that all i have to do is wake up, get changed, and go downstairs to workout! i have been doing this since the beginning of the year and i have actually surprised myself by being consistent and still have not missed a day in the 6 weeks since i started!! also, i have been seeing awesome results!! love that!
jan 26 (thursday)
photo just before retiring to bed, yet again!! this was a bad week for pictures, i guess! i kept forgetting, so now you have lame pictures to look at. this is our family room, aka “the cage”. it is enclosed by a gate spanning the entire entryway. it is filled with toddler toys in all 8 of those canvas drawers. it is where the boys spend most of their waking moments! it is my sanity saver! i clean it more times than i would like to in any given day! i almost NEVER go to sleep at night unless it is all straightened up and looking nice… except this day!! i was too exhausted!
jan 27 (friday)
today was mae mae’s 3rd birthday! i love that i captured her in mid-blow on this photo! earlier this day i took her to fry’s grocery store to let her pick out her cake. she picked a mint chocolate cake… bright, minty green!! i was a little nervous, but it was surprisingly good! she also picked the candles!! the ones she picked… were trick candles! haha! she kept blowing and blowing! then she said, “mama, these candles are broken!!” haha! i love our mae mae!!
for her birthday we redboxed kung fu panda 2 (loved it) and watched it as a family with her choice of movie theater candy! mae mae made up one of the laundry baskets as her “theater chair”, complete with pillows and blankets. we must have worn her out because she didn’t last through the movie!
