Hello, my name is Chelle.  I am a serious bloggie slacker!  I have no excuse, I just have been really sucking it up in the bloggie department.  I have been reading, but not commenting.  Comment slacker too.  If you still want to be my friend, read on! 

So this summer has blown by.  I have not been working... at least not anything traceable!  lol.  I have done a few odds and ends stuff.  I have tried to get some chellstrings business, but that isn't working out like I had hoped.  I still give lessons to Carlos.  He is great! But other than that, not much playing.  The new symphony season starts at the end of September, so I am looking forward to that. 

I am looking for a real job, but times are tough and even with a degree and experience, I have not been at all successful.  Jeff is going back to school in the spring (hopefully...) and I don't want to be the one to stop him from getting his masters just because I want to stay home and play with babies! (Actually toddlers, but I still call them babies now and again)

Speaking of toddlers!!!  OMG, these girls are too much fun!  They turn two October 8th (gasp!), and I am planning a princess party for them.  There is so much to write about each of them and I am actually mad at myself for not documenting better this summer.  They have grown SO much.

Madison:  She is a cuddle bug.  She loves to give whole body hugs and when she gives me a kiss, it's not just one, it three in a row.  She loves to put on her dress up princess shoes!  She has an ornery side to her, like her daddy, and she will take Mickie's toy and run away laughing.  She loves animals.  All animals.  She loves to go to a nearby pond and look/feed the ducks.  We read the same story every night (the little boy and his drum) (rat-a-tat-tat.  Rum-a-tum-tum) and she makes all the animal noises!  She is talking pretty well, and is beginning to actually tell me what she wants instead of the high pitched "uh, uh, uh!"  I have yet to cut their hair, and Maddie's has the cutest curly cues ever!

Mackenzie:  She is a mommas girl all the way!  She is very considerate of her sister.  She always helps her up when she falls and she speaks a lot for her.   She talks pretty good, and surprises me sometimes with what she knows.  She loves her stuffed animals, especially her monkey.  She "feeds" them and loves them.  She is very compassionate.  She is very tall, it seems, for her age.  She sometimes gets up once or twice at night and I think she just wants me to cuddle with her... I don't mind!  She has straight hair that almost reaches the middle of her back!

Glad you are back to writing :) My girls will be 2 on the 10th of October...I'm planning a Dora party (wish it was something different, but the girls just LOVE Dora so much). Love to hear about what your party will be like...I have been a slacker and am not sure what I should do for a 2 year bday party!! I really need to get on it (and need some easy ideas!!).

I'm glad to hear from you too. I'm a worry-wort, so I get anxious when bloggers don't post for too long.

Do you read Ikat Bag ( She throws the most awesome parties for her girls. Your girls are too little for most of what she does, but still, if you want some inspiration, I'd highly recommend visiting (click her Parties tab, but unfortunately not all of her posts are linked, but still good).
