15 months

Reese was 15 months old on Saturday! She is officially walking, talking more and more, using sign language (please, thank you, more, eat, milk, cookie, cracker, airplane, bird) , loves playing with her baby, loves her BIG sister & keeps us laughing with her fun personality and even funnier facial expressions! I sure do love my girls!!

Happy Birthday to me...

I have had a wonderful birthday so far!

Johnny's Mom and Granny come over to watch the girls all day yesterday while Johnny and I got out and played! We went to lunch at one of my favorite places, Pei Wei, and then we went to the mall for a bit to kill some time before our appointment at 3. At 3, we headed to my birthday surprise from Johnny, which was a hot stone massage and a manicure and pedicure for both of us! Ahhhhh....It was great! Then, we met a group of friends at Mi Cocina (another one of my favorites...Mexican) for dinner and drinks! Unfortunately, I have felt a little under the weather today. I am thinking it is a combination of a sinus headache and cocktails! Much better now though...Thank goodness! We are going to celebrate one last time time with Ashton's present that she picked out for me and a yummy Baskin Robbins Ice cream cake tonight!! Mmmm...Can't wait!

Thank you to Johnny for making my birthday so special this year!! I am a lucky girl to be married to such a great guy!!

New do...

I took Ashton for yet another haircut today! I am really trying to even it up because it drives me crazy when the sides are shorter and then it gets longer in the back. Kind of reminds me of a haircut I had back in the 80's! I think that it is finally pretty much even, but she had to cut it very short to even it out! I was a little panicked at first because I got 2 phone calls while she was cutting it, and I wasn't so sure that I liked it! Thankfully, I do like it though! I think that the short cut fits her personality!

Birthday lunch...

My parents are leaving for New Mexico in the morning so we had an early birthday lunch at La Hacienda yesterday! Good food and a good time!! Thank you guys!!

One last Summer Sleepover....

Isabelle and Makenna came over for one more sleepover before school starts on Monday (for them anyways)! The girls had a great time playing, making their own banana splits, watching a movie and chatting until late at night! AND...No haircuts this time THANK GOODNESS!!

Look who's Walking!

Well, she isn't exactly walking YET, but she is taking quite a few steps! I am sure that walking is in the very near future! We are in trouble now!

I did it, I did it...

This is not going to be very exciting to most of you, but I figured out how to sew!! YEA!! Here is my first little project. I definitely have room for improvement, but I am excited that I figured it out! Hmmm...What's next?? I am thinking that I will try t-shirts tomorrow!!

Getting the hang of it...

Johnny went to the Cowboys game last night, and I played on my embroidery machine while he was gone! I think that I got the better deal since it was so HOT while they were tailgating and watching the game. I think that I am getting the hang of it! My next goal is to figure out the sewing part of my machine! I don't want to do anything elaborate...just sew a ribbon on a shirt. I really hope that I can figure it out soon!! Hope you are all having a good weekend!!

Our trip to Tampa...

We had a great time on our vacation! The girls played a lot and got makeovers in Downtown Disney at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, we went to the beach and spent a couple days at the Lochness Monster Pool at the Innisbrook Resort! Fun, fun times and what great memories!

Thanks again, Dennis Family!!

We're back...


I definitely worried way too much!! The girls did great on the flight even considering the circumstances. Reese played with a couple of her toys, had a snack and watched a little bit of Annie on the way before she crashed out! YEA. On the way back, we boarded the plane at 6:20 for our 6:50 flight. It was beginning to rain shortly before we boarded. After everyone got settled on the plane, it began to rain harder and the lightening began. They loaded the luggage during the breaks from the lightening (which continued off and on). Just as it would stop, they would announce that they would finish loading the luggage and we would be on our way! Ooops...Just kidding....It is lightening again! This went on and on until we were finally able to take off at 9:00. So, we were also going to miss our connecting flight from Houston to Dallas. We arrived in Houston a little after 10, and we rushed through the airport with 2 sleeping children, a stroller and our 3 carry-ons trying to make the 10:20 flight before it was full! Thank goodness, we made it! So, we arrived in Dallas at about 11:45, and we got home at 12:45! What a day!!

More to come (and pics) of our fun trip tomorrow! Off to bed!!

Hope you guys have a good week while we are hanging out with the Dennis Family!! We can't wait to catch up, go to the beach and hang out by the pool! I will share pics on Monday!!

Visit to Granny's house...

We went to Arlington on Sunday afternoon to see Johnny's Granny and Mom! The girls had a lot of fun playing outside, we enjoyed a yummy dinner thanks to Granny and (most of all) enjoyed visiting with Granny and Gran! We also took Sadie for a visit to Camp Granny while we are in Florida! Thanks for a fun visit, Granny and Gran!
