The news started talking about snow coming about four days before it was to get here.  Atlanta ended up in a hot mess but around here is doesn't seem so bad.  The roads aren't in terrible condition, which is good since James still had to go to work.  And he's getting off early because they are expecting the melting snow to re-freeze the road tonight.  So hopefully that will all turn out for the best and tomorrow it will all be gone!
the girls got to play in the snow!!
It was supposed to be here at noon...
So we waited and waited....and finally...
It got here!!
Ready to go play :) we are so under-prepared for snow weather.
 A little walk around the neighborhood.

 And an early nap with a pretty view of the snow.
In my opinion it was about the perfect amount of snow.  Both girls got to see it and play in it, but it wasn't too much.  Snowday success!

Daddy James is 30!

Daddy is 30! We had a busy week getting ready for his birthday.
We finally made it back to the gym and I used my fancy heart rate monitor during bodypump to see what kind of calories we burn during that class.  810...I'm not sure I believe it, but I'd like to!
We went out for James' birthday Friday night and this is the only picture I took...Mandy dancing with some random old guy.  Family photographer fail.
We also had to make a sign for baby Caden.  Apparently you can't find a stork for the yard on a Sunday.  Who knew.
Here are some more pictures from the week :) I can not believe how fast these girls are growing!

Baby Caden gave us all a surprise and showed up on his own schedule :)

He is precious! Everyone is healthy and we are in love :) We are just a little happy for The Capps Family!

Another month flying by!

It has been really cold this month!
And all of the warm days have fallen when I'm at work!
But the girls still get to have a good time with Grammy :)
It's been a good month so far!

James and I have been able to read some of the same books and watch some of the same shows lately so it's been fun to talk about that stuff.  It's been a good month so far, but it's only going to get better!

Beginning of the year

For some reason I had been dragging my feet on posting the Christmas pictures, which kind of backed up the whole rest of the month.
The girls got to hang out with Mrs. Regina on New Years Day for a little while and she sent me this super cute picture while I was on the treadmill.  She is so good to them! We haven't been going much this month so far, I was waiting on the new years resolution people to drop off some.  I think we are going to start back tonight. 

Emily was playing around coloring one night and said look Mom, my name!  She never ceases to amaze me.
Then there's this little trouble maker.
Super smart, no doubt, but quite a handful. lol
I finally had the brilliant idea to watch a movie on the iPad while the girls watched a movie on the tv...success!  Once I put the headphones in, it's like I disappear.  It. is. awesome.  I have gotten to watch like 5 movies and a bunch of HBO shows this month already.  Awesome.
We also went to target to get bathing suits and the girls got to try stuff on in the dressing room for the first time. They were so sweet.
Growing so fast!  
Caitlyn made it all the way to the top of the play ground at Chick fil a.  There was only about a 4 minute span where I thought I was going to have to have to go up there.  Emily and a little boy talked her down. 
That day we also got some goodies at target.  I know if my Mom would have bought this for me when I was their age I would have been over the moon!  Who doesn't love a multi colored pen and a new notebook?  I still do now.
We also found this wine on the recommendation of one of my Instagram friends.  It's a winner.  For sure.
This was our bathing suit haul.  I'm going to get them monogrammed of course!
Here's a look at what the girls do when I'm on the treadmill.  The sweet stuff lasts for about, oh maybe 3 minutes.
Caitlyn was kissing her babydoll saying "I lub you!" She is so sweet.  Both girls give out heartfelt I love you's pretty often right now.  So sweet :)

My resolution last year was to run 3 5k's.  I ended up running five 5k's, a 10k and a half marathon.  I remember signing up for that Color Run and thinking...well I have to do it now.  I had no idea what was in store for me!

This year I made the resolutions to run at least 12 miles a week and go to Church more often.  Maybe I should add in a sub 2:00 half marathon.  The one I did last year was 2:01.  I think I can, we shall see ;)
