Mary Lynne is engaged! She is planing a wedding in December. None of the plans are set really but we are in the preliminary stages of wedding planning. I think she has found the dress she wants and we are looking into reception spots. That is really all that we have done at this time but I thought we should get the news out there. I will let you all know more as the details are planned.

So I have been spending the last few weeks trying to get ready to move. As you know I am moving to Las Vegas in August. This means I have to find a place to stay and get into the school. I have been accepted to the college but now I have to get into the program. The application is due in June so I can't sign up for classes or anything until probably late June or early July. I don't like this because I want to have everything done and ready NOW. I am so used to signing up for fall classes this time of the year so it is new to me to wait like this.

I have found a place to live that I think I am going to like. It is kinda like the dorms at EA but I have my own room and my own bathroom and my own entrance from the outside, but I share a kitchen and living room area with 3 other people. I like this because I don't have to pay for the electricity from anything in the kitchen. Our rooms have their own meter and we only pay for what our room uses. Water is included in the rent so I think I will be able to afford it. I am pretty excited to decorate my room (which is 2x the size of my room now). If anyone has any decorating tips I would love to hear them!

So today has been an interesting day. I woke up very tired this morning and I have no idea why. I slept through the whole night but didn't get rested. I went up stairs and started to eat my cereal and there was a knock on the door. The first baby was 30 min early. She was also tired hungry and very dirty. So I shared my breakfast with her then gave her a warm bath and put her down for a nap. By this time I had to wait for the other baby to come. He came at 11:00. He had just woke up from a nap meaning I couldn't put him down. Darn!! Well we played a little and ate some lunch. Then he got tired and I gave him a bottle and he fell asleep. I thought GREAT, some down time! NO Alora woke up 5 min later. She had figured out how to get her diaper off and was playing in her poop. Yuck. I had to give her another bath and do a bunch of laundry now. Kieran's mom just came and got him and Alora is walking around in a 3rd outfit clean for the time being. Did I mention that I am sick and running to the bathroom every 15-30 min all day. What a long day it has been and it is not over yet. The good news is that I have finally been keeping food down and Alora will be leaving in 45 min. Tomorrow is another day and I am determined to make it a good one.

It has been a while since I posted anything so I guess it is time.

2 weeks ago my family and another family went to Mexico for spring break. It was wonderful! Our house was right on the beach in Kino Bay. So beautiful! We had a blast and hope to go back soon.

Yesterday I took the babysitting kids to get pictures taken. They turned out really good. Here are some of my favorites.

Alora and her lovely sister Tyra.

She turns one next week.

He turns one in 2 weeks.

This is Kieran's brother Dermot.
