As you know I absolutely LOVE birthdays (mine, yours, a complete stranger’s, etc.). Anyways, we celebrated Amanda’s birthday 3 times (party with family and friends, party the morning of her birthday, and party at daycare). Here is a slideshow with all the pictures from that week/weekend of parties!
My lil lady is officially 2 years old (well almost 2.5 at the time of this post:)

Amanda and Amira have been sharing a room for months now. However, they have never successfully pulled off sleeping in the bed together since we always catch them and make them get back in their own bed…..however, over the Thanksgiving holiday Jacquelle and I were really relaxed with them and they got to stay up and “read books” until they fell asleep. I guess they “read” so much they fell asleep in the same bed:)
The most exciting event was when they woke up and Amanda declared…… “Amira pee-peed on me Mommy!” I wish I had video of that…..it was hilarious. She was in shock and may not sleep with her sister again anytime soon. You’d think she’d know that Amira has a 1 in 3 chance of peeing in the bed these days since I wash sheets at least 3-4 times a week.

Here is the very first turkey (well just a breast) I've ever made!!! I was so doggone excited about this turkey I may have checked on it 18 times. Since I'm a vegetarian, I'm always concerned about over or undercooking meat.......in this case I heard all these horror stories about drying out turkey. I don't think Jacquelle had much faith in me either.
However............the turkey came out juicy and well-seasoned as ever from my cocktail marinade it sat in the night before. I was so proud I even made a video for proof so my father in law can see the results of my work......I don't think he had much faith in me either:)
