Pumpkins and Birthdays....

The girls went to the local produce stand to pick out their pumpkins the other day.....





...and another year has come and gone, and I have to turn a year older. I remember as a kid I would start the countdown to my birthday months before.....

Not so much these days....

Funny, the older you get the less you care about birthdays. But, like it or not, I turned 33 yesterday....ugh! I remember when 33 seemed sooooo old.....and here I am.

My precious husband wanted to do all of these surprises and I begged him to keep it low key....I am thinking that if I don't acknowledge the birthday, then I don't have to turn a year older....not the case...

Ryan came home from work early...and if you know Ryan's work schedule, this was a gift in itself....he and Faith took off, not telling me where they were going. They returned with steaks, potatoes, salad and a birthday cake for me. I had fun grilling out with Ryan and the girls...we pigged out on steaks and cake!!! YUM!!

...so in the end, I was thankful I had my birthday with Ryan and the girls...it was just what I wanted...3 of my favorite people who covered me in hugs and kisses on my special day....

A Magical Weekend

Ryan and I decided to take the girls to Disney World for a 3 day weekend trip....we kept it a secret from Faith until we got there, so she had no idea where we were going! Ryan's sister, Megan, and her boyfriend, Michael also came along with us. Since it was a weekend get-away we decided to only go to one park (if you have ever been to DW you know how expensive the tickets are just for ONE day)...so we got there when the park opened and stayed until it closed! Boy were we tired, but we had a blast!!!!




Brooke rode her first roller coaster....can you tell by the look on her face whether she liked it or not?!?!?!...


But she loved the Dumbo ride and waved to everyone on the ground..


...and no trip to Disney would be complete without a ride on the teacups...(can we say MAJOR motion sickness???)

Hooray for cotton candy...and junk food...ALL DAY LONG!!!


A Fun carosel ride...

Megan and her boyfriend, Michael...I think they had as much fun as the girls did!





Brooke was TERRIFIED of the life size characters...just look at her face and how she's trying to get as far away from them as she can!!!


Here we all are, at the end of the night...after 13 hours at the park!!!

Looks like she had too much fun!

Dancing With Daddy, Piggy Back Rides and Other Funny Things....

A few random shots for you.......

Here is one of Brooke's RARE still moments....

I thought this picture was funny....not sure exactly what the girls are laughing at...I am sure I was doing something goofy behind the camera, trying to get them to look at me and smile....but Brooke has her head thrown back in laughter....If I am having a bad day, I can always come back to this picture to make me smile....

We love to turn the radio up at our house and dance until our hearts are content...the girls love it....great QT....fun laughs...new dance moves....and always brings big smiles to the grouchiest of ladybugs....


And when dinner is finished, warm baths are done, and pj's are on...there's nothing like a fun piggyback ride from Big Sis!

Shopping Divas, Snow White & Coloring.....

We had to make a run to Lowe's this morning, and our shopping divas went with us....

It rained all day so the girls enjoyed some quality time coloring, and Brooke decided to be Snow White for a while....she's really getting into this dress up thing...she's such a girly girl, unlike her big sister...

Heirloom Dress.....

Yesterday, I had Brooke's 2nd Birthday portraits taken. She wore a dress that was once mine. My mom bought this dress for me to wear in a beauty pageant when I was 4 years old...the pageant where I told EVERYONE I wanted to be a Robot when I grew up....My mom kept this dress all these years and gave it to me when Faith was a baby. Faith had her 18 mo portraits taken in it, and yesterday Brooke wore it for her pictures. So, now it will probably go in the back of the closet until I can one day hand it down to my grandaughter! Here are 3 photos...one of me in the beauty pageant, one of Faith, and one of Brooke...all in the same dress!

Grandma and Church Choir....

This past Saturday the girls and I visited my grandmother for the day. We always have fun seeing Grandma, and she enjoys getting to watch the girls in action!



Sunday at church, the children sang a song at the beginning of the service, and I have the video of it. Faith, however, was not feeling well. You can tell by watching her she is not her usual happy self....a few hours after church we ended up in the after hours care with Faith's temp at 104. She has strep throat...yet again...for the 2nd time in 2 weeks. Poor Baby, she has not been feeling well these last 2 weeks. But, with more antibiotics, I am hoping we are on the road to a FULL recovery!!! Here is Faith's video...keep in mind, she feels horrible, hence no smile on her face!

Breakfast With Brooke.....

Brooke started her morning off in a great mood... (that's rarely the case...she's like her Momma, not a morning person at all)...but here she is...HAPPY...having breakfast....

Faith is the Star Student at school this week....each week a new student is the "Star" and gets to be the helper, door holder, etc. .....now just between you and me, I am sure the teacher goes around the class and pics a kid that has not already been picked, until every student has had a turn......but to Faith, it's because she was a good listener and followed directions all week the week before. So, I made a BIG deal about it on Monday when she came home with the sticker, and we took a picture of it!!!!
