Pictures of the girls

I am a terrible blogger....I just don't have time! Maybe this fall I can blog again more regularly when Natalie starts Kindergarten. If I can stop crying that is!

My very talented friend Laura took these photos, they came out so cute! I realized I had never gotten Natalie's 5 year and Haley's 2 year photos, so I combined them with a little Father's Day present of the girls. And I love how they came out!

Happy Birthday Natalie!

How is my little Thanksgiving turkey 5 years old already?! She had a great birthday though...

She is SO excited, only 6 months away!!

Breakfast at Kelly's, back to where it all began 5 Thanksgivings ago!

Opening presents

I wasn't touching Sissy's new CD player, I swear!

Back to Preschool!

Natalie had her first day back at Preschool yesterday! She has been ready for this since about a week after it let out last May. She loves her school and is so excited about all the fun things they have planned this year, which means Mom is excited too! Even though this is her second (and last!) year here, I still got teary eyed after dropping her off. I am going to be a mess next year at kindergarten!

She sat right down and starting coloring without telling me bye!

Back in Dance

I'm back, hopefully for good! I have just not been in a blogging mood this summer! But it is fall now and there are many fun things coming up in my favorite time of the year!

Today was Natalie's first day back to dance. She took it two years ago, but last year she decided she wanted to do gymnastics. Then she wanted to dance again, so here we are! She has been SO excited about starting back, and I was too knowing a girl I used to dance for (she was in college when I was in high school) would be her teacher!

She had a great time, she actually listened most of the class, and since she had done it before she was practically an old pro! She is definitely excited about this dance year!

SO excited to be back in dance!

Haley saw the camera and went running to get in the picture!

Wow - this might be the first picture I have of them smiling together!

Warming up their faces!


Not tapping - I didn't get a lot of pictures but considering I had to
chase my 17 month old around I am happy I got the ones I did!

Welcome to the family!

On July 25th, my brother-in-law got married in a gorgeous, not as hot as we thought it would be outdoor wedding (yes, an outdoor wedding in Houston in July, during the hottest summer I can remember!). The weather was perfect, the bride was beautiful, Jimmy and I had a great time being a part of their wedding, and I have an amazing new sister-in-law! I have some pictures I took on my camera that I haven't uploaded yet, but I absolutely love the pictures the photographer posted so far. We are going to use her this fall to take some family pictures of the four of us - our first family pictures! Yes, that is sad! Haley is 16 months old and we have not had any family pictures taken! Better late than never, right?! Anyway, welcome to the family Ashley, and congratulations to the two of you!!

Summer Fun

Wow it has been a long time since I last posted! It has been a busy summer.

Trying to keep cool any way we can...the heat here has been insane!

Lots of popsicles, and lots of tears when the popsicles are gone!

Thank goodness our neighbors own an inflatable business...before the water rationing this is what our cul-de-sac looked like every week! ( for anyone needing to rent a water slide or moonwalk!)

Hanging around...


Napping down the lazy river...

Playing with butterflies...

Dress up playdates....

Wedding activities for my sister who is getting married in January...don't worry, this is not the dress she chose!

And a LOT of swimming! Natalie took swimming lessons and is officially a fish! She refuses to wear her life vest anymore and can swim all over the pool without any help!

This one THINKS she can swim....

And a lot of indoor activities. Don't let the picture fool you, they went right back to picking on each other and fighting mere seconds after this picture was taken!

I hope everyone else is having a great summer and I promise to get back to a more normal blogging schedule! I have so much to post about, and with my brother-in-law getting married next weekend, even more coming up!
