It hard to have bottoms that stay up!

Kickball and Our New Friend

Well, it's been a long time since I have posted anything, so I have lots to post. The morning after we got back here, the office got together to play kickball. Here are some pictures from that...

Bailie and her favorite person, Cy (Dev's manager)



The twins, Dani and Jaci

Ava and Bailie sharing books



My hubby showin us how it's done

And this is our new friend... He doesn't have a name yet but he lives in between the sliding glass door and the screen on our back patio. FYI: Florida is crawling with lizards, geckos, frogs, spiders, etc. It's really gross.

Ladies Night

I really wanted to get some of these pictures up before I left for Florida....

We had a ladies night with Amy before she got hitched... Erica made DELICIOUS pina coladas and strawberry daquiris, Talyn and I made fruit pizza, and Shannon made yummy chicken alfredo for dinner and brought chips and salsa. We dipped our hands in wax so they would be soft and we did our nails. It was so much fun and I hope it will be memorable for Amy! We love you so much Aim!!

While we were in my mom's backyard Bailie 'found' (aka picked) a pretty pink flower so we put it in her hair... She actually left it in for awhile cause we kept telling her she was so pretty. Man I love this girl.

Extreme Makeover: Landscape Edition

Since I left to Florida, my little sister, Talyn has been taking care of our house... She has done an AMAZING JOB!! She has gone above and beyond the call of duty. I can't tell you in words how crazy the transformation has been so let me show you! Click here to see the before and after pictures of our landscaping....

My family has been talking about having a 'family garden' for awhile now. We had the perfect spot in our backyard so we finally got down to business and put it in! My family (parents, Talyn, Grandma, Aunts, etc.) came over the day after I got home and put the planter boxes together, and my brother in law and Dad brought the dirt. My mom and sister planted the seeds and I watched :) Yeah, yeah, I'm not much help and I know it. I want to take pictures every week and show the progress because it has been so fun to see how big everything is getting. We planted beans, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, basil, green onions, cucumbers, zuchini, squash, peas, carrots, and bell peppers. I think I got all of them but I may have forgotten some. (We didn't shove all of it in these 3 beds. There are lots around the rest of my yard, but here is the bulk of it.)

Here is the garden 4 weeks after everything was planted....

The Latest

Here is an update on what we have been up to lately....

Miss Bailie was sitting on my lap and Baby kept kicking because she was pushing on my belly, so she tried to feel him kick.

Bailie came into the computer room saying, 'Look mom! Baby is pretty now!' Good thing these are washable crayons...

She got carried away with her Madagascar stickers....

And started sticking them to 'baby'
I just loved this picture! She couldn't get her dress off and she was laughing so hard

She is getting way too big! I can actually put her hair in a ponytail now!!

B has been waking up so early these days and it has been hard on me because i'm so tired all the time so I tried putting a little tv in her room to see if she would watch movies so I could sleep a little bit longer... Unfortunately it didn't work, but she does love watching movies on her little tv!

Talyn gave Bailie some ice cream and she had to make sure she got every last bit...
