We took our first road trip, started our 2nd year of preschool (much smoother than the year before!!!), and just had a really really fun year. It was also a really healthy year. I am so thankful for that.
What will 2012 bring? They will be turning five. Kindergarten (and therefore a new school, and therefore a big new transition). And now that it’s officially 2012, it’s more real than ever. And time will fly. Yes, I’m scared. Yes, I will be praying a lot. I will be staying positive, and I’ll try my best to prepare them for this next step.
My Dear Sweet Piggies, There is so much to look forward to this year! Things that will be tough, no doubt. But we will, no doubt, have bunches more fun. Give bunches more hugs and kisses, and have bunches more giggles. Mama and Dada love you.
For this month’s Multiples in the Kitchen post on the Multiples and More Blog Network, the girls and I made Breakfast in a Cup.
And last month, we made a dessert perfect for fall and winter, Apple Strudel. Thanks again and again to Steph @ Pendants by Steph for sharing her recipe! We’ve made this many times, even in little individual strudels for our Thanksgiving preschool potluck last month.

To increase efficiency and accuracy in my daily life with my clueless Mama, I hereby suggest the following changes:
1) Addition of the phrase “Too Lot”: This would be a combination of the phrases “a lot” and “too much”. For example, when my Mama puts not just a lot, but waaay too much water in my toothbrush cup and it spills onto my sleeve, I would say “There’s too lot, Mama.” This expression would truly convey to her the grievous error in her ways.
2) Combining the words “Parsley” and “Leaves” to “Parsleaves”: I see that it is not yet a word, as it has a red squiggly underneath. But there was one time where I wanted to touch the parsley leaves at the supermarket but Mama pushed the cart (and me in it) away, saying we were in a hurry. We? I wasn’t in a hurry. Anyways, combining the phrase into one word would save time, increasing my chances of pawing everything I want to in every grocery aisle, making a mess and causing everything to fall down on the floor and then staring blankly at it as Mama rushes to clean it up. So I hope that the red squiggly underneath this word will disappear soon.
3) Changing “Turquoise” to “Dark Light Blue”: My wardrobe consists of many colors of the same pair of pants, which I find oppressive enough already. So Mama buys these pants in dark blue, light blue, and this color in between called turquoise. I find the latter word to be completely exasperating and I refuse to say it. I feel that “Dark Light Blue” is more accurate. Even though making one word into three words may seem to take longer (unlike proposed changes 1 and 2), I feel the sacrifice in time is worth it to achieve further accuracy. Therefore, when I say I want to wear blue pants, and Mama asks which blue pants, I can tell her “Dark Light Blue” instead of folding my arms and grumping around in complete irritation thus ruining my whole day.
I am sure I will have more changes to follow. In the meantime, please implement these as soon as possible, as I feel that these changes will benefit all that speak you.
