I scream, you scream...


Ashton occasionally asks for me to straighten her hair, but it really surprised me when Reese asked for me to straighten her hair too!  Her hair naturally curls up a little (even after flat ironing it) so this is about as straight as I could get it! I just think that she looks like a different child. I LOVE her curls, but it was fun to see her with straight hair for a change!

SWT reunion!

We had a girl's SWT reunion with some of our good friends, Courtney, Jenn and Monda along with our 6 kids! We went swimming, to the Wetzone waterpark, a little shopping, cooked out, ate some yummy yogurt at Yogurtville, and caught up on old times back on MLK!! We had a lot of fun, and the kids had a great time playing!! We need to do it again very soon!!

Dora Live

My sister and I took Reese and Makenna to see Dora Live!! Reese was in awe.  I think that she was trying to figure out how the heck Dora was there right in front of us! It was worth every penny to see the look on her face! She LOVED seeing Dora and keeps asking to go back and see it again! I love watching things through the eyes of sweet!!

Pop Star

Ashton has been invited to quite a few Hannah Montana/Pop Star parties this summer! I guess that "the thing" to have when you are turning 6! 

 Ashton heading to her friend, Hannah's (how appropriate), Pop Star Party!
Ashton & her friend, Chloe with their cool face paint!
What a fun and creative party...I think that I might just need to step it up a notch after Ashton's party at Peter Piper Pizza! Then again, maybe not!! It was a FUN party though!!

Princess Camp

Ashton enjoyed her 3rd and final year at Princess Camp! This is a really neat program with a great message about being a Princess of God. In addition to the message being taught, they did fun crafts, puppet shows, music, and painted nails! Reese can't wait until she can go to Princess Camp next year!!

Goodbye Paci!!

The day was LONG overdue that we toss the pacifier! We went on vacation the last week of that was the deadline! As soon as we got back from our 12 hour drive, we were going to get rid of it! Well, we got back and everyone was VERY tired! We needed to catch up before losing even more sleep! I know...excuses, excuses! Then, I took the girls to the dentist, and we decided that was IT! We "supposedly" left the pacis with Dr. Kelli after she told Reese that the pacis were bad for her teeth! It was a spur of the moment decision, but we went with it! Reese wasn't very happy...crying in the middle of the night to go back to the dentist and get her pacis...but overall it wasn't too bad!! 

We had been talking about getting rid of the paci for quite a while, and we told Reese that she could get her ears pierced as soon as she was a big girl without a paci!! 

So, after a couple of paci-free days, she got her pink, sparkly earrings as promised!! Poor thing, it was a little more traumatic for her than it was when Ashton got her ears pierced! Thankfully, it was short lived, and she loves her sparkly earrings!! :)

Oh Baby...

We gave Ashton and Reese a bucket of pink and blue surprises to tell them that they were both going to be big sisters!! I asked Ashton about the color of the surprises, and she didn't get it! I also pointed out the pink and blue baby bottle pops and the Bratz Babyz Movie! They were both excited about the fun surprises, but they were still unsure why they got them!!  Ashton finally figured it out when I gave them each a laminated sonogram picture of their baby sister!! Yea!! 

Ashton and Reese will both be BIG SISTERS!!  I am due 1/23/10! We are all VERY excited!!

Gulf Shores 2009

We headed to the beach with my family the last week in June! It was my parent's 40th wedding Anniversary and my Dad's birthday, and they wanted to celebrate on a trip with the family! Lucky us. We all had a great time!

Loving the beach...

Looking for sea shells!
