Questions to my childhood have been answered. Not that I knew these questions existed but today, in my mind...they were answered.

Back in my day of misspronounced words and tiny clothes I always noticed that my Barbies never had any shoes on. No big deal right? There's really no need. Alot of them were missing parts of their feet. Toes would go missing constantly.

I know what your thinking. Barbie's toes are melted and molded to her body...they don't just fall off. Well they didn't. My mom would bite them off. You see, she has a thing with chewing plastic. Anyway, it occured to me that maybe it wasn't because of her plastic chewing habit that had her relocating Barbie's feet. I now know she HAD to be chewing off their toes because there is absolutely no way to get their feet into their shoes!

Maybe my Barbies weren't missing shoes...maybe life was much more difficult when trying to put them on. Because just moments ago little Jax came to me and said "Mommy look what I found!"

I look at the pink packaging and see a box of Barbie shoes that I had hidden (only because I know Max would seek them out and try to eat them all). I got really excited and said "SHOOOOES!" hoping that my excitment would distract her from getting to her next question.
It didn't work. She thrusted 80's Barbie towards me and said, "Here. Put 'em on."

Well why not, I thought to myself.

After 5 minutes of tugging and pulling and pushing and yanking you want to know what I did? I bit off Barbie's toes. Yes, the shoes now fit. No, I'm not turning into my mother......(Just kidding Momma. You know I'm not being mean).

Gleeful Jax and Gleeful Max

I am the absolute worst blogger. Ever. I'm great at this Facebook business...but blogging...not so much. Anyway, life has been going full speed around Jax and Max. We are a couple months away from their birthdays and I cannot believe it has been a year since we moved from little town Texas to BIG CITY Texas.

In fact over the weekend I took a trip to one of the biggest cities in California. Upon my return, and flying over my new cities lights, I was astounded by the vast amount of them. But that's neither here nor there. Let's get onto the girls.

Jax is a performer these days. She loves Glee (I'm so proud). Her two favorite songs are My Life would Suck Without You and Gives you Hell (worries me a little...but still proud). She will dance and run all over the place when Glee is on. She knows every turn point that Lea Michelle does on the TV and will raise her voice along side her when singing. It's quite amazing.

Max, who ALSO loves Glee, crawls now at a speed that baffles me. I figured she would be walking by now but she crawls so fast that she just doesn't feel the need to try I guess.

She astounds me every day with her big smiley face. Months ago, when I blogged about her lack of sleep, I think I forgot to mention our trick to get her to stop crying. Of course it's Glee.

Lea Michelle's rendition of Don't Rain on my Parade to be exact. Max can be screaming...exorcist style...and if we replayed the song, through the heavenly technological DVR, she would simply stop crying and just watch. Of course there were many nights where I watched that same song over and over (2 hours was the longest), but it wass worth it.

Have I brain washed my children? I'm not sure...but every Tuesday night at 8...while getting them ready for bed...they sit and watch Glee with the same attention of their 27 year old mother.
....also these beautiful pics of my girls were taken in one of my favorite places at one of my favorite times of the year. I love Texas Bluebonnets!!
