Let's Play...

While the Daddies were at the Delt Hunting Trip, we met Monda & Jonah for a playdate! We picked up some breakfast at Sonic & headed to the park to play! It was great weather, and we had a lot of fun!!

Birthday Fun!

Our neighbors are having their daughter, Channing's 4th birthday party at Jungle Gym today, and she wanted a "4" shirt to wear with leggings and a tutu! So, I was the lucky one that got to make her shirt! I think it turned out pretty darn cute! I can't wait to see her in it!

Then, I was feeling very ambitious as I shopped a little last minute for the birthday gift last night! Channing loves mermaids! So, Ashton actually found this fun little mermaid for the bath!

So.... I decided it would be so cute to make a bath towel to go with her gift! I obviously wasn't thinking how LONG it would take to make. Wow, that was A LOT of work...especially with Johnny out of town! It sure is cute though! I hope that she LOVES it!!

Stir Crazy

We are getting a little stir crazy around here. Reese and I have stayed home all week because I have not felt so well. I have been congested and coughing. Probably just a sinus infection. I went to a Room Parent meeting on Wednesday morning, and Johnny called me on the way to drop Reese off at school and said that she was acting like she didn't feel well. I got home and she seemed to be acting tired and a little congested. Then, she perked up and was full of energy by 9:30!

Ashton has had the same thing for about a week now, and she just started complaining of a sore throat last night. So, I took her to the dr today, and she has a sinus infection. Thank goodness for an antibiotic! It drives me crazy when it is viral, and you just have to "wait it out"! The girls did also get the flu mist while we were at the doctor too so it was nice to get that out of the way!!

I am so ready to have energy and get out of the house! This weather is too perfect. I am planning to drop Ashton and Reese off in the morning, meet the Moms from Reese's class at Starbuck's for some coffee & get a manicure and pedicure....Just a little "me time" is just what I need.

Oh please, let it all go as planned...

I have been trying to find Halloween costumes for the girls since they seem to sell out of the good ones early! Not sure what Reese is going to be yet, but Ashton wants to be a Princess! I asked her what she wants to wear and she said a dress and a crown! Don't you think that is just a little ironic since she WILL NOT wear dresses or skirts AT ALL right now. I even try to get her to wear them with leggings by saying that it is a long top, and it doesn't seem to fly with her! Off to find a pink princess DRESS...

Another day at school...

Reese was excited to wear her school shirt today! I even added a little bling to make it look a little more girly...which she said was "cool"! So, how much longer do I have to wait until she is waving goodbye and excited when we walk in the door of school? I don't think that it took Ashton more than a day or two? I guess it helped that she started in January, and noone else was crying.

TGIF!!! So ready to wake up a little later than 6! PLEASE let the girls sleep in the morning!! Have a good weekend!!

School Spirit

Ashton's school is having a Spirit Night at a local restaurant tonight! So, I thought it would be fun to show our spirit! We've got spirit yes we do, we've got spirit, how about you?

Oh yeah, that also means that I don't have to cook tonight! Woo hoo!!

My Little Gymnast

Ashton started taking gymnastics again a couple of weeks ago, and Reese reaaaally wanted to go too! I was trying to decide between gymnastics and Kindermusik, but she helped me in making the decision! I made her a custom wee-a-tard that she tried on and wouldn't take it off last night, and she was so excited to go to her very own m-nastics class this morning! She had so much fun!!


Ashton's 1st homework assignment was due today! So, we sat down and worked together last night to complete her "All About Me" project! I had a lot of fun...This is my kind of homework!!

Exciting news...

My sister called me today with some very exciting news! She put me on speaker phone, and my nieces told me that they were going to have a baby brother or sister!! We are SO excited to welcome another niece or nephew into the family in May 2009!!

Day 2

Reese was excited to go back to school until it was really time to go! She picked out her own outfit, and we went outside to play and take a couple of pictures. She was so happy and running around until we came back in. When we came inside, she was on the floor kicking and crying that she didn't want to go. We pulled up to school, and she said "I don't want to go to school!". It didn't help that we heard screaming all the way to her classroom, and every child was crying when we walked into her room. So, I left my baby screaming and crying too! I held it together until I made it to the car and called Johnny. Then, I had some tears myself. I am just hoping that she gets used to it quickly and is waving goodbye to me before too long!

School days

I still can't believe that my baby started preschool today! Is she really old enough? It sure doesn't seem like it, but she was so excited to go to school! She went right in and sat down for a snack. They had animal crackers, and then they played with playdoh. She asked for us not to go. We stayed for just a bit and then headed out (without any crying or tears). Then, we heard "the cry" as we were signing her out! I don't think that she realized we were really leaving until we were in the hallway. Thankfully, I had Johnny with me to hold my hand. No, I didn't cry...but I was worried about my baby!

We looked at houses just for fun, I did a little monogramming and organizing in my study, signed Ashton up for soccer and went out to lunch before heading to pick up Reese!

I was very anxious to see how her very 1st day of school went, and I was very happy to hear that it was GREAT!! She didn't cry for very long at all, and she had a very good day! She was also one of the first kids to fall asleep and one of the last to wake up from her nap...Yea!
