Sock Hop at School

The girls had 50's day at pre-school. Here they are in their poodle skirts!
(sidenote: God totally provided these poodle skirts from a sweet friend, Heather.
I just happened to run into her at Wal-Mart where I was frantically trying to figure out how I was going to pull off 2 poodle skirts in less than 24 hours?!?!
I just love it when He does stuff like that!! :)

If you know Libby, then this picture will make you laugh!
It pretty much sums up her personality!!! :)

I went in to get Max this morning & this is what I found!?!
Libby did the exact same thing (click here).

I am so THANKFUL for...

...spending time with these sweet boys!
Thank you, Jesus, for all that you have done & are still doing!!

Jackson was so sweet to Libby! He said "Come on, Libby. Let me show you around."
Like he had been there before or something?!?!
It was so cute that he wanted to "take care" of her! :)
P.S. Baby Bradley went home with his Pap & GiGi because it was too cold. Max was off running around somewhere. But I can tell they are going to be great friends! :)

Our sweet sweet Sophie likes to talk - a lot! Believe it, or not, I was that way when I was little! I think she talks from sunrise to sunset each day.

On the way to dance, this was our conversation:

Sophie: Mom! Mom!
Me: Yes, Sophie (for the millionth time that day)
Sophie: Ummm... I don't have anything to say.
Me: Hmmm.... oh really?!?!

Happy Wednesday :)

August Happenings

We went to the zoo!  Surprise, surprise!  
We took this photo for Papa Geno!  (He works for Target Corporate)

The kiddos made a yummy b-day cake for me with my mom, Grandma Bicki.
The girls :)
The girls finger painting a b-day picture for Maw-Maw (their great-grandma).

My mom took me out to dinner & shopping for my birthday - 
we had so much fun!!  Unfortunately, we ate at Maggiano's BEFORE shopping :(  
Too full to shop for clothes!
We went to the sprinkler park with this sweet little gal, Hallie 
(& her mom, Dori, of course)!
This is the only pic I got of Max - because he ran away from me the whole time :(  
He could have cared less about the water?!?!  
On the other hand, he LOVED the cement & stairs! 

On August 14th we got together with my brother & his family to remember my dad.  
We ate dinner at Whataburger (this was his favorite place to eat).  
I can't believe it's been a year already...  Max wore a "Dan's Diggers" shirt in his honor.

Sophie made this birthday card for her cousin, Leighton.  I was so proud of her!!  
She did this ALL on her own.   In case you're wondering....  it's Sophie & Leighton playing together in their bathing suits - complete with trees, mice, a sky, & a sun (in the corner of course).  I clearly remember coloring pictures all of the time with a sun up in the corner! 

Our ballerina is back in action!  
She picked out the boots to wear with her dance outfit!
We took a road trip to Colorado to visit Rhett, Rebecca, Fielder, & Cooper!  
That's another post....

The best $15 we ever spent....

Sophie ORIGINALLY got these Dora pj's for Christmas 2007.  

Here she is wearing her NEW pj's.  Look how big they are on her.  
She's singing her MDO song:  Ya put your hoooooooves, ya put your hoooooves out....  

Well... along came Christmas 2008 & being the thrifty person I am - I packaged her pj's back up!  (Please don't make fun of me!  She LOVED these pj's!  Plus, she didn't NEED anymore pj's.)
It was so funny to see her open them up!  (I'm not going to lie - I was a little nervous... I thought she may feel a little jipped!)  You would have thought it was her first time to lay eyes on these beloved pj's!  She was soooo excited!  

Here she is wearing them TODAY!  They're too short all over, but she doesn't care!  I think I've even tried to pass them on to her younger cousin, Daisy, but they didn't make it!!

So, my question is........ should I wrap them up for this Christmas????  ;)

This Summer....

What have we been up to this summer while it's been....

soooooo hot - you gotta wear shades!?!?!

We've started climbing on everything,
ridden on our hand-me-down Barbie Jeep (thanks, Dori), 
gotten reallllllly brave,
played a lot, 
started using sign language,
developed a little bit of a 'tude (!), 
gone to Daddy's softball games,
started looking like a Big Boy,
acted like a monkey,
made lots of corn on the cob,

grilled out a whole LOT, 

fought just a little bit,
helped Mommy with chores,
had just a couple (!) meltdowns,
went to a wedding & caught up with old friends,
been so dog-gone tired we've fallen asleep on the floor, 
and still wearing our shades!

I hope you all are enjoying your summer!  We are!  We're trying to beat the heat here in Texas!!  I will try to be a little more consistent with updating our blog (ahem, for Rebecca)!  
We love y'all!
