Monday, Monday...

Oh Baby...

We had play group at our house today, and we had a baby shower for our good friends (Lara & Jennifer)! They are expecting babies in February and March. We had some good food, chats & fun!! We are really looking forward to their upcoming arrivals!


My friends keep telling me just how lucky I am that Ashton is still napping! I really hope that it is just a fluke that she hasn't taken a nap in 2 days now! I NEED my downtime, and a nap of "Can I get up, Can I get up, Can I get up NOW???" for 2 hours is just no fun!! I don't quite count that as downtime! So, no nap=no playing outside. I made that very clear ahead of time, and Ashton wasn't too happy when I finally let her get up because she really wanted to go play with her friends! I didn't feel too bad when I said "Well, you can go play outside tomorrow if you take a nap!".

ART time...

Aunt Julie got Ashton an art kit for Christmas, and we finally got around to playing with it! Ashton had a great time with it today! Thank you again to the Patterson Family!!

Weekend Fun!

I survived the haircut with both kids! I'm not so sure that I will do it again anytime soon, but we did okay! Next time, I will either go on a school day or when Johnny can watch the girls!


Woo hoo...The sun was finally shining!! We were FINALLY able to get out and enjoy playing outside while Johnny was hunting! Ashton had a great time playing with her friends on our street, and Reese enjoyed driving her car for the first time!!


We took it easy on Saturday morning. The girls enjoyed watching cartoons together and hanging out in their jammies! I just thought it was too cute when Reese held onto Ashton! She loves her sister!! We were all very happy to have Johnny home on Saturday afternoon! We really missed him!!

PJ Day!

All of the preschools must have the same schedule! Ashton also had PJ Day at school on Thursday!! She was very excited about it!!

Too funny....

Okay, so I just needed to post quickly so I can get ready to go get my haircut! I am sure you will get tired of my pics of the girls, but I just thought this was too cute! By the way, I sure hope that I am not CRAZY to take both girls to get my haircut! I will let you know how it goes! TGIF...Too bad Johnny is hunting until tomorrow afternoon!!

Hey, that's my paci...

Okay, I guess the baby can have it!!

I'm back...

Well, I am just a little behind on my blog after a busy week! We had a great time in Galveston (and my sweet baby even waited to cut her teeth until I got home...YEA!!). We also had a wonderful week with the Dennis girls! We didn't have the best weather, but we still managed to have a lot of fun!

Our girl's weekend in Galveston was such a nice little getaway! We had a pizza party, games & cocktails on Friday followed by our un-birthday gift exchange and the hot mom's in minivans
b-day cake! I LOVE my cute little basket & bag, and I can't wait to go shopping at the Gap and enjoy some coffee at Starbucks!! I think that I might just have to do that next Tuesday while Ashton is at school!! Thank you very much, Narci!! Then, several of us enjoyed spa treatments at the Moody Gardens Spa, and we went to lunch and shopping on the strand! I have only had a couple of massages, but this hot stone massage was by far the best! I was SO relaxed that I almost fell asleep! I am ready for another one!

We went to out to dinner (yummy food & martinis!)& then to a bar on Saturday night for dancing and more fun! We all had a good time! I was feeling the effects of the crazy night the next day. Oh, I sure wish that I had just one more massage before heading home! I NEEDED it!

We headed home from our girl's weekend on Sunday, and the Dennis girls spent the week with us! We had some fun plans that we didn't get to do because of the crazy weather! Who would have guessed that we would have been "iced in" when it was 70 degrees just a couple days earlier? Our good friends, Narci & Jack, were supposed to come visit from Dallas, but they were iced in too! Awwwh man. Here is the sign and pic that we e-mailed Jack!

We did have a lot of fun playing with ALL of the girls (Shepperson, Dennis & Parker), shopping, eating Charisse's good cooking, having some good drinks, doing crafty projects, etc. Most of all, we really enjoyed spending time with you guys and catching up! HURRY UP back to Texas! We miss you guys already!!

Ready or not...Here we go!!

Well, I am not in the mood to blog tonight since it is midnight, and I should be in bed by now! I am trying to finish picking up and doing laundry before the BIG weekend! I don't think that I have mentioned that I am going on a Girl's weekend to Galveston! I am a little torn because this is the first time that I have left Reese, and she is about to cut her first 2 teeth. I don't want to miss that!

So, the Dennis family is flying in tomorrow morning!! YEA!! We are all very excited to see them! The girls will hang out with Johnny, Tim and Steven, and Charisse, Amy and I will head to Galveston with 11 other girls. I think the hot stone massage, relaxing, sleeping, etc. will be very good for me (and all of the other Moms)! A much needed break to rejuvenate...Not to mention the Beach Mansion that we are staying in. I love the Parker's Beach house!!

Once again...more pics of Reese! I posted the pics of her eating the biter biscuit on Sunday (I think it was). Well, she REALLY enjoyed it tonight! I'm sure it felt very good on those gums! Oh yeah...At one point, she dropped it and started eating her toes! Silly girl!

Another milestone...

While we were in Dallas, Reese starting sitting up! Look how well she is sitting up now...What a big girl!!

Off to the Jungle...

We were heading to the zoo with the Parker girls and Mom's Club friends, and Ashton is asking about going to the jungle! "Who is going to the jungle with us, Mommy?" I told her that we were going to the zoo. A few minutes later she asks, "What animals do you think we will see at the jungle?". I guess it had been too long since we had visited the zoo! This was our first time to visit the Houston Zoo, and we had a good time! This was also Reese's first time to go to the zoo! What a fun day!!

How cute is the baby elephant??

He wasn't as cute as my little baby bird though!! Is this funny or what?

Teething here we come...

Yes...Reese is sleeping in HER crib now! I have put her down to sleep in her crib every day this week, but she has woken up crying about 30 minutes to an hour after I put her down. I think I might have figured out the reason why. Yesterday, I looked at her gums, and the bottom is puffy and a little swollen! I think my baby might just be cutting her first and possibly second tooth! Poor baby.

We went to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner tonight, and I gave Reese her first biter biscuit! She thought it was pret-ty good stuff!
I hope you all had a good weekend!!
