Tomorrow we are going to Augusta to see Charlemagne's family. I took the girls on Friday to Alabama so they can stay until this weekend. They have had a ball...I have been off work for the week and Charlemagne only went for two days. We have had a well deserved break from them. We are so ready to see them again and miss them so much. It is hard to think about what we did before them.
Saturday is the start of Basketball season. They have been practicing but the games actually start. We are excited about this year because he has a really good group of boys he has been coaching since they were in 9th grade. They did really good in their scrimmage game and are very excited to see what the outcome of this year is.
The girls are growing up so much! I know I say that in every posting but they grow up in just a month. Christa is still peeing in the potty randomly but more often then before. She usually goes through about 1 or 2 pull ups a day. She is talking so much now and has such a big imagination. She is always pretending to so something with random things, even it is invisible things..haha..She is so into Dora and Boots now. I have to record it in DVR because that is all she wants to watch. She likes to pretend she is Swiper too...Its funny to watch her..It is hard to believe that she will be 3 years old in February!!!
Brea is 15 months now. She went to the doctor on the 12 for her checkup and she weighed as much as Christa does. She weighed 28 lbs. and Christa is 30. She is going to be a big girl...haha...She even has as much hair as Christa does, curly and black! She loves to do anything her sister does but she is not as independent. She still wants to be on her mommy and daddy, and she IS a daddy's girl...she loves her daddy! She gets so excited when she sees him coaching and we are in the stands.
Life is moving so fast! Thanksgiving is a time to settle with family and remember what we are thankful for. It don't seem that Christmas is around the corner. I love these holidays because family and friends are so important!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and Happy Holidays!!!

We have been busy with it being Charlemagne's fall intercession last week and mine this week. It has been really nice to be off but I am ready to go back. We went to visit my parents on Monday and came back yesterday. They were so happy to see the girls.
We this is just about all we have been doing lately. I will try and write some more later. Hope all is well with everyone else. Take care!!!

As you know we have not had internet connection at our house. I am in Montgomery right now on my Mother In Law's computer...(Thanks!:) There has been a lot going on lately. I have got me a job and the girls have been going to the babysitter. Charlemagne has been doing a WONDERFUL job of taking them and picking them up in the evening.
Christa has learned a lot since she has been going. They have been learning their colors red, blue, and yellow. She usually gets them right when you ask her, that is if she is in the mood to tell you..haha...They have also been learning the letters A,B, & C. The best thing of all is that she will go pee pee in the potty!!!! She has just recently done that.I took her to a volleyball tourny one Saturday and she went 3 times while we were there....I was so proud of her. She is talking so much better too. Its like since I went to work she has grown up so fast!
Brea on the other hand is getting around fast! She is so busy with everything. We have gotten her off the bottle and on a sippy cup. It has helped since she is on regular milk now that we don't have to buy formula. She has gotten 6 teeth in all now! But boy she can throw them fits!
Her and Christa play so well together. I really am so happy to have them so close in age. It is getting easier as they grow. But ask me again when they get teenagers and see if I have changed my mind...haha...
My job is going good. I have been working as a parapro at this alternative school. It is fun to work with these kids. Some of them are bad but deep down they are just kids...I feel that this is getting me prepared for the future when I do get my own set of kids in the classroom. I am also still coaching at another high school. We have gotten off to a pretty good start of the season. One of my JV players moved to Varsity which is a good thing. Its always good to see one of your players to move up to the varsity team.
Like I said before, Charlemagne is doing a wonderful job of taking care of the girls in the morning and evening since I have gone to work. He is getting ready for basketball season too. It will be very soon when he starts his season. I am ready to start watching his team play. I think they will have a pretty good season this year and so does he. He has worked with these boys since they were freshman....I am just so proud of him and what he does with the boys and the team.
This is about what has been going on the past month. I will hopefully be getting me a laptop so I can catch up on what the girls are doing daily....I hope everyone else is doing great! I am about to catch myself up on what you are doing with your blogs...
Take care and blog with you soon:)

Something new is that I found me a job. It is a pretty good on so far. I started last Thursday, so tomorrow will be one week to the day. It is a paraprofessional position at an alternative school. The kids are real rude but they do listen if you threaten to write them up or take them to the office. They also make them do push up and squats if they misbehave. I have gotten to know some of the kids and really talk to them about what they like to do and stuff like that. It seems like the hardest part is getting along with other teachers when you are a parapro than the students. I am just so ready to get my own classroom!
As well as working at the school I am also still coaching. We had our first game last night. They did ok and it was a real exciting game. We have many more to go so hopefully we will get better.
While I have been going back to work the girls have been going to a babysitter. She actually was a pre school teacher for many years. She keeps one other girl who is Brea's age and used to run an in home child care. The girls love her! Christa has been doing really good but yesterday and today she had to go to time out for her first time. The reason was being mean to Brea...imagine that..haha...
Well I am at the gym writing this and I'm ready to go home. I will hopefully get the Internet back on by next month. So until then, have a wonderful one!!!!

First I have been to Phoenix and Vegas and back home. Me and my neighbor, Stacey, had a good time..Of course didn't win any big bucks but enjoyed ourselves. While we were in Phoenix we met up with a friend of mine from college. What are the chances of a friend I went to college with was from the same town we stayed in...
Brea is walking all over the place. She stayed with her grandparents in Montgomery for a week while I was gone. When I got back it seems like they grew up so fast! She walks so fast and has become such a happy baby..I think it is because she can actually move around herself without us holding her. Just in the past couple of days she has also cut 2 teeth. One of them is on top and the other is on bottom. She will then have 1 on top and 3 on bottom (all in a row) She will be turning 1 in a couple of weeks. How time flies by so fast! I am planning the party. I think we are going to have a lady bug party just because we found this cute lady bug outfit...we will have cupcakes that look like little ladybugs and maybe a water slip n slide outside.
Also today Brea had her first major accident today. She was standing in the rocking chair and I think what happened was Christa pulled her legs out from under her and she hit her head on the back of the chair. She got a bump and bruise right in the middle of her forehead...
Christa is starting to talk in sentences. She told me one day "I want shoes off" This is the first sentence I have ever heard her say. She is growing so fast always taking care of her sister..She also saw a cat today and called a "meow". I had to try and explain to her that it says meow...She is to funny and says the funniest things every day....
Charlemagne is about to be back in school. Teachers have to go back Tuesday and the kids the following Wed. So of course my full time job is about to start, being a stay at home mom...haha..It will be a lot of fun this year because the girls are older and I can get out and do more with them...
Anyways, I will try and post some pics later..Hope all is well with everyone..And take care!!

I know this is late but we just got home yesterday. We left for Montgomery for the weekend and came back Sunday. Since Charlemagne had his basketball camp on Monday & Tuesday we just stayed with his aunt in Atlanta...
Our 4th was great! Spending time with family is always fun...The girls stayed with their aunt, uncle and grandparents and we came back without them. It is so quiet right now around this house is scary but its nice to get a break..haha...This is my first break away from Brea. I really miss them but it is fun to hang with Charlemagne by ourselves again...
Here are some of Christa's new friends we spent the 4th with...
These are just a few pictures I thought was cute from last month that I had on my camera and never took off....
Christa's gym friend Brandon..They were born 2 weeks apart..His daddy is the assistant bball coach...
This is what Christa got into one morning before we left for Montgomery...And this isn't the first time!
So until after my trip to phoenix and vegas.....take care

On Friday we took Kyle and the girls to the pool while our mothers had a day to themselves on the beach. We always give them one day to themselves and I think they really enjoy it. While at the pool Christa had her floats on and Brea sat in her little "car" float...That night we went to eat out at a all you can eat seafood buffet. It was really neat because they had a mermaid there. She even got in the water to swim some. Christa thought that was so neat and got a necklace from her. It was real cute!
