Christmas Part I

My last day of school was December 18th and I was so ready to be out of there! I was very ready for a break!

On Sunday the 20th we went to Don and Carlene's for Christmas and Rachel really enjoyed herself. She got to ride on the golf cart with Grandpa Don and Daran and they saw some deer. We ate lunch and opened presents and Rachel was very sweet.

Then on Monday the 20th we went to see Santa. Last year she cried and wouldn't sit on his lap and told him not to touch her. It was hilarious. This year she sat right up there and told him what she wanted, a barbie bathtub, a barbie car, and a kids snuggie. Isn't the kids snuggie thing hilarious?

This picture isn't the greatest, but it shows that she was having fun with Santa.

After Santa, we went to buy a big TV. Daran had been talking about it forever and I was like just buy it already. So we got a 55 inch LCD TV and a blu ray player. It is awesome!

On Tuesday I got my hair cut and highlighted, and Rachel stayed with Nana and Elizabeth was there. They always have a great time together and she cried when we left.

On Wednesday, Shonda, Gary and Priceilla came over for dinner and to open presents. We don't get to see them very often, but the girls always have lots of fun together.

Christmas Program

Rachel's Christmas program was on December 11th. Daran and I took the day off work so we could also do some Christmas shopping. Rachel was an angel this year, and actually it is the third year in a row she has worn the angel costume that Mary made for her. It gets a little bit shorter every year. Last year at her Christmas program, when she saw me she started crying and didn't even perform with her class, so this year I was going to hide in the corner so she wouldn't see me. One of the moms came up and said that Rachel was already crying and sitting in her teacher's lap, so I thought, oh no, here we go again. Well suprisingly, she did really well. Her teacher said that she was one of the best singers, and that is why she is standing by Mary. She did a wonderful job! Afterwards, we went Christmas shopping and then out to eat lunch, so we had a very busy day.

October and November

I think about updating this every Sunday and then never get around to it between cleaning, shopping and laundry. Right now Rachel is terrorizing Zoey, so I have a little time.

For Halloween Rachel was Minnie Mouse. Nana and Papa came over in the evening and we had pizza, and then Rachel went trick or treating with some kids in the neighborhood. They ran in a big pack and after a while I couldn't even tell where she was, but I knew she was there.

Do you notice how she is the only one dressed cute. Everyone else was a vampire or scary bride or something like that. We got her costume at Target and it was adorable.

I had my first Thanksgiving at my house. Dad came over in the morning and showed me how to do the turkey, and they also made sweet potatoes, stuffing and fruit salad. I did the green bean casserole, corn casserole, rolls, pumpkin pie and ham. Doug, Eleanor, Elizabeth and Benjamin came over and brought a pecan pie. The kids really enjoyed playing together and everything tasted great. I forgot to take any pictures. I guess I was too busy cooking and cleaning.

Unfortuately the next morning Dad called at about 7:45 asking if anyone was throwing up. I told him no and he said that at about 4 in the morning mom had woken him up in pain and they went to the emergency room. She was having a gall bladder attack and needs surgery pretty soon. So, my first Thanksgiving, I send my mom to the hospital.

What we've been doing

We have been very busy. Rachel is really enjoying school. Her teacher this year is Ms. Jan and they are working on their letters and numbers. They have show and tell every week and you have to take something that starts with that letter of the week. So far we have taken her apple umbrella, a book, her Rachel cup, and a doll. We went to a birthday party last weekend for one of her friends, Bella. It was at their house and lots of fun. Then I came home and cleaned my house like a madwoman because I can't stand having a messy house.

Mom is doing better with her hip replacement. She is home now and we went to see her last Sunday. She was happy to see Rachel and Rachel was very happy to see her.

Rachel is getting so big and grown up. Right now while I'm writing this she is pretending to talk on the phone. She loves to play with her dolls and she loves to play outside. The weather has been really rainy lately though so she is hanging out with me.

Sunday, September 20, 2009

I have been terrible at updating. Mom had her hip replacement surgery on Wednesday and we are relieved that everything went well. She is now in a rehab hospital and Rachel is dying to see her, but we figured we would let her get settled in first. Other than that we have been busy with school and daycare and getting ready for school and daycare.
These are some recent pics. Rachel has learned to write her name!

3 day weekend

Well you have settled nicely into the school routine. Since you are still sleeping in bed with me, you get up around 6:00 and watch cartoons while I get ready. Then we get you dressed around 6:30 and try to leave around 6:50. We get to school around 7:00 and you have been saying bye without too much trouble. Last year you would cry and chase me down the hallway, but this year you just say bye mommy and start playing with Miss Jan. You enjoy your school and like playing with all of your friends.

My school is going well. I have another french teacher this year, so that really helps. My classes are still large, 30-31, but it's nice to have someone to bounce ideas off of and talk to throughout the day.

Has it been that long?

Have I really not posted in 2 weeks? For some reason I thought I had. Maybe it got lost somewhere in cyberspace.

Anyway, we have been busy. I went back to school on the 12th and you have been staying with Nana and Papa. On the 13th, Daddy went to Dallas, so it was just me, you and Zoey. On Sunday the 16th I woke up sick. I felt horrible and so Nanny came to get you because Daddy wasn't home yet. Daddy finally got home and so I went to the doctor and it turns out I had strep throat so I got an antibiotic.

Then the 17th through the 21st I was at school getting ready for the new year. Papa came to pick you up every morning which was nice. He also brought you home. Thanks papa!

On Friday we went to your school's open house. You are a Dolphin this year and your teacher is Ms. Jan. You seem to be excited about going back to school.

School starts tomorrow so we have been busy getting ready this weekend.

August 2-8

We had a busy week! On Sunday we just hung out. Monday you had a dentist appointment. You did alot better this year and you didn't cry very much at all! Plus no cavities!

Then on Tuesday we took some of your clothes to Kid to Kid and got some ice cream.

Wednesday was my birthday! We went to lunch with Nana at Mimi's and then did a little shopping. You were so cute because you said that you were having lots of fun at Mommy's party and we weren't even doing anything exciting. Then that evening you went to Nana's and Papa's and Daddy and I went out to eat at the Olive Garden. Then we came back and had ice cream cake. Doug was there because he was going to borrow their car to go out of town.

Then Thursday you went back to Nana's and Papa's because I had to do some shopping for clothes for back to school. When I picked you up you cried and cried because you had been taking a nap and I rang the doorbell and woke you up. Thursday night I went out to eat with Lori and you stayed home with Daddy.

Friday Nana came over here for a little bit because I went to lunch with my friend Maricela and then did a little shopping.

Saturday you helped me clean house and then we went to HEB. We saw Papa at HEB.

Monday, August 3, 2009


I've been busy back at work for the last week. You stayed with Nanny on the 2 Fridays I had to work, and then with Nana and Papa on Monday through Thursday. You had lots of fun and I really missed you. It made me sad to think that I have to go back pretty soon for the school year. I love our time together in the summers, even if I do feel like I'm impatient with you alot of the time.

When I picked you up at Nanny's on Friday, you were out in the backyard playing in the rain with Ruby, Texie and their friend Macy. You were having so much fun and looked so happy, I wish I could just freeze that image in my mind.

We have this week and part of next week together, then it's back to school time.

Sunday, July 26, 2009

July 25, 2009

Today we went to a birthday party for Brooke, a little girl in your class. It was a princess party and it was awesome! You got to dress up and put on dress up shoes and make up. You even got your nails painted. Then they had a runway show and you said your favorite food was lunch, your favorite animal is a giraffe, and when you grow up you want to be a princess. Then there was a tea party with real china. It was lots of fun!

Then in the evening we went out to eat at Serrano's and then shopping at Kohl's.

July 24, 2009

Well today was the dreaded day that I had to go to work. I took you to Nanny's and you had a good day. Daddy picked you up and he said that you were being such a good girl. So one day down, 5 to go.

Friday, July 24, 2009

July 23, 2009

In the morning we hung out at home and did a little cleaning. Then in the afternoon we ran some errands. We went to the post office, the library, and to Target. We also stopped at Round Rock Donuts and got a donut that was still warm. It was the best thing I have ever had in my life. You liked it too. I have to go to work tomorrow and I am still pissed about that, but you are going to stay with Nanny, so I'm sure you will be spoiled.

July 22, 2009

Today you had your picture taken at Portrait Innovations. I had this really cute pink Paris dress that I wanted you to have your picture taken in so we did. I wasn't really that impressed with the photographer, but you did a really good job and we got some cute pics. I curled your hair before we left and it looked really cute. You used to have lots of curl in your hair when you were younger, but now it's all kind of fallen out.

Then in the afternoon we went to the grocery store. You didn't get to ride in the race car cart, so you were a little upset about that, but you managed.

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

July 21, 2009

Today we went to Chuck e Cheese with Nana, Papa, Elizabeth and Benjamin. It was lots of fun again! You are still scared of Chuck e though. Then we went to Barnes and Noble to take something back and went to get gas for the car and went through the car wash, you think those are fun. Then for dinner we went back to Nana's and Papa's and had Chick Fil A. You are so crazy when you are with your cousins and you didn't want to leave, so I had to carry you out of the house screaming and crying. It was great!

July 20, 2009

Today we went with Nana and Elizabeth to Applebee's for lunch and then we went to Barnes and Noble and got some books. Elizabeth and Benjamin are staying with Nana and Papa because Doug and Eleanor are in New York. Which brings me to mention that I have never spent a night away from you, ever in your life. Not that I think that's awesome or anything, I just wanted to mention it. Let me also mention that I have to go back to work on Friday of this week and then all next week! It's for training and I've been pissed about it all summer because who starts something on a Friday after being off for the whole summer? It seems idiotic to me, but oh well, that's how it is. But whatever!

Monday, July 20, 2009

July 19, 2009

In the morning you went to Wal Mart with Daddy. The rest of the day we didn't really do anything exciting because I didn't feel very well, I had a headache.

July 18, 2009

This morning you went swimming with Daddy and the pool in Nana's and Papa's neighborhood. Then in the afternoon we went to Target.

Saturday, July 18, 2009

July 17, 2009

This morning you went to Nana's and Papa's for a little while and then we met Lori and Hayden and Hannah a Chuck e Cheese. You all had lots of fun except for when you saw Chuck e cheese, you screamed and cried. I was up ordering pizza and you couldn't see me and you were hysterical, I felt horrible. Then you were okay after a little while. We ended up staying for 4 hours. We even ran out of tokens, but you just played in the back with the TV screens.

July 16, 2009

Today was your last day of swimming lessons. I was so pleased with how you did. You ended up jumping in the pool!

Today was parent's day so we got to stay inside the pool and take pictures. The other days we had to wait outside the gate. Next year I think I will sign you up for the whole summer.

Thursday, July 16, 2009

July 15, 2009

Mommy got paid today so we had lots of fun! We went to swimming, then home, then to Gymboree to buy a few things with Gymbucks. It was so crowded in there and I was afraid you were going to walk out of the store because for some reason they always keep the door open. I got you a few things for when school starts. You have tons of clothes though. Then we went to the grocery store and you got to ride in the race car cart. You love that.

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

July 14, 2009

Today was swimming lessons in the morning and you still love it! I'm still amazed that you just jump into the pool now. Then we came home and you actually took a nap today. You don't really nap anymore, so it was nice that you took one.

I can feel the days of summer ticking down and I hate thinking about going back to school. I love getting to spend time home with you, even if you do drive me crazy sometimes.

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

July 13, 2009

You are doing so much better at swimming lessons. You jump into the pool now and actually put your whole body under the water willingly. It's amazing compared to how you were just a week ago. I am so proud! You seem to really enjoy it.

Monday, July 13, 2009

July 12, 2009

Today we went to church and Nanny met us there. You did really well although you didn't want to go to Bible class for some reason. Then we all went out to eat at Red Lobster. You love their biscuits.

Sunday, July 12, 2009

July 11, 2009

Today you went with Daddy to Home Depot while I went to the grocery store. At Home Depot, you and Daddy picked out a new dishwasher for us. I am so excited to get it! They are going to deliver it next Saturday.

Then in the evening we went the The Salt Lick for Nanny's birthday dinner. Your friend Bella was there and y'all had lots of fun playing together. Then we went over to Nanny's house for cake. You stayed up the latest I think you ever have in your whole life, until about 11:00 p.m. You did really well, you weren't even grumpy.

July 10, 2009

Today Nana came over and took care of you for a little while because I had an eye appointment. Then after I came home we just played inside for most of the day.

Thursday, July 9, 2009

July 9, 2009

You didn't cry at all today at swimming lessons and I was so proud of you because you put your face in the water twice! We didn't really do anything exciting the rest of the day, you helped me clean a little bit.

July 8, 2009

Today Papa took you to swimming lessons because I had a doctor's appointment. You got stung by a bee when you were there, but he said they put ice on it and you seemed to be okay, so I guess you aren't allergic to bees. He said you didn't cry. Then you stayed over at their house for a little while and I went to pick you up around 3:00.

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

July 7, 2009

You did pretty well at swimming lessons today. You just cried for a little bit, but the teachers are really nice and I think you enjoyed yourself once you got in the pool. It is so hot out there I about die! We have to wait outside the gate and the sun is just blazing down! At least the lessons are only 25 minutes.

Monday, July 6, 2009

July 6, 2009

Today was your first swimming lesson. You did pretty good, but the teacher said you were a little worried because you couldn't see me, so tomorrow I am going to stand outside the gate where hopefully you will be able to see me. But you didn't scream and cry the whole time, so I took that as a good sign.

In the afternoon we went to your 4 year well check. They checked your hearing and vision and you had to get 2 shots. You did really well, but then you screamed the whole way home because you had taken off your bandaids and you wanted new bandaids but I didn't have any. I about went crazy. Then of course you fell asleep about 2 minutes before we got home.

July 5, 2009

Today was a really busy day. First, we went to Priceilla's for her birthday party. They had a big water slide bouncy thing in the backyard, and you loved that thing. You were going down head first. I was so surprised! It was so funny! Then after that we went to Nana's and Papa's for Eleanor's birthday dinner. You had fun playing with Benjamin and Elizabeth. You were really tired when we got home and fell right asleep.

Sunday, July 5, 2009

July 4, 2009

You drove me crazy today! Something was wrong, I think you needed a nap. In the evening you and your daddy went to see the Round Rock fireworks. I didn't want to go since it was so hot, so you 2 went. Daddy said that you had fun and didn't get very scared.

Saturday, July 4, 2009

July 1, 2, 3

We went on vacation to San Antonio. This is our view from our hotel, the Omni. We stayed on the 18th floor and had an excellent view.

You really like hotels. The whole way up there you kept asking if we were at the hotel yet. I think that is your favorite part of the trip. Our hotel was really nice! We had a buffet breakfast both mornings and the room was really nice. The hotel had an indoor and outdoor pool and you and your daddy went swimming. You don't actually get in the pool though, you sit on the step.

The first night we went to the circus at the Alamodome. You seemed really excited at first, but when it started it was really loud and the fireworks scared you, so you sat in my lap for the first half, but after intermission you perked up and enjoyed yourself. You liked the elephants and the tigers. I only got one picture, the rest were too dark.

We got back to the hotel around 11:00 after waiting forever to get out of the parking lot. You were very tired and went right to sleep.

The next day we went to Fiesta Texas. You really wanted to see Wiggle World and you were very excited.

You were a little scared of the characters here and wouldn't get your picture taken without Daddy.

At Wiggle World you rode several of the rides and then we saw a show. You moved right up by the stage and you kept waving at the characters. Captain Feathersword even got you with some feathers. You were the cutest!

After that we were worn out and went back to the hotel to rest. It was so hot there and we were ready to be done. That night we went out to eat at Benigans and went to bed at about 9:00. Then the next morning we went and had breakfast and then you and daddy went swimming. We checked out of the hotel and then went to the Outlet Mall on the way home.

It was a great vacation! You did a really good job and we all had a lot of fun.

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

June 30, 2009

I can't believe it's the last day of June. Today you went over to Nana's and Papa's for a little while and I went shopping to Target and Michael's for our trip to San Antonio. It was raining and you and Papa were outside in the garage watching the rain. It was so cute. We are leaving tomorrow. You are a little sick with a cold or something. Your voice is hoarse, you sound so funny! Hopefully you will be okay on the trip.

June 29, 2009

Today we went shopping with Nana. We went to Kohl's to get some things for our upcoming trip to San Antonio. Then we went to eat lunch at Applebee's. You were really good and had a grilled cheese. Then we came home and hung out.

I had one of those days with you where I felt so impatient and then I felt terrible about it. You are sometimes mean to Zoey, like chasing her with the little grocery cart and pulling her ears, etc. I'm worried that she is going to bite you one of these days. And it's so hot outside I can't just put her out all day. I realllllly need to try to be more patient.

Sunday, June 28, 2009

June 28, 2009

Today you went to Nanny's house to spend the day. She called yesterday and said that she felt guilty that she hadn't got to spend time with you, so she said she wanted to spend the day with you. We took you over there around 9:45, then me and Daddy went to see Transformers. It was really good. I enjoyed it. Then we went to eat lunch at Taco Cabana. We came home and I did some cleaning and your daddy took a nap. Nanny brought you home around 3:15 and said that y'all had a good day. I missed you and I was glad to have you home!

June 27, 2009

We didn't do very much today. We went to the library and turned in some books, then we went to Sonic and got an ice cream.

You don't really take naps anymore, which is hard. Today I tried to get you to take a nap but you only slept for about 30 minutes. You used to take 3 hour naps! It was awesome!

Saturday, June 27, 2009

June 26, 2009

Today was your last day at VBS. I think you really enjoyed it, you got to do arts and crafts which is your favorite. Then we came home and played inside. It's been really hot here. Like 105 and 106. Super hot, even for here.

Friday, June 26, 2009

June 24, 2009

This morning was VBS and then we met Grandma Carlene at Mcdonalds and you spent the afternoon with her and Grandpa Don in Georgetown at their house. They brought you back at dinnertime and said that you had a lot of fun with them. I enjoyed my afternoon off, especially since you don't nap anymore. Sometimes it makes for some really long days.

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

June 23. 2009

You had vacation bible school again today, it's all week long. Nana and Papa took you because I had a doctor's appointment. She said you cried a little bit, but you were okay after a minute. Then we had art class, you got to paint a water bottle and make a sea shell wind chime. You were a little bit crazy at art class and you didn't really pay attention. I think you were just tired.

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

June 22, 2009

Today was your first day of Vacation Bible School. It's at the Day School so you know everybody there and you were really excited to see all of your friends. You did cry a little bit when I left, but they said you were fine after a few minutes. Then in the afternoon we went to the grocery store. That's about it for the day.

Monday, June 22, 2009

June 21, 2009

Today was Father's Day. You had made Daddy a frame and a card so you gave that to him, then we hung out until we went out to dinner with Nana and Papa at Olive Garden. You had cheese pizza and you did really well. I was so proud of you!

Sunday, June 21, 2009

June 20. 2009

This morning you went to the pool in Pflugerville with your Daddy. It's a big pool with a slide. Daddy said that you had fun but cried a little bit. I stayed home and got some housework done. Then we just stayed home the rest of the day and played with all your toys.

Saturday, June 20, 2009

We have swimming lessons coming up soon though, so hopefully those will go okay. Then it started raining a little bit, so we went back to Nana's and Papa's and had grilled cheese sandwiches and played for a little bit.

Thursday, June 18, 2009

June 17, 2009

Today you went to Nana's and Papa's and I cleaned and organized my closet and went through some of your clothes to get rid of. Some I sell on ebay and some I take to a kids resale shop. I love to buy you clothes! It's probably my biggest weakness. But I can't help myself because little girl clothes are the cutest!

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

June 16, 2009

In the morning we went to Jungle Java which is an indoor playscape. We had been there once before on your birthday. You really enjoyed it! There were lots of people there and you had fun being around other kids. It was nice and cool in there.

In the afternoon we had art class where you got to paint a picture frame for Daddy for Father's Day and you also painted a card for Daddy. Then you got to make a clay sandcastle and then cover it with real sand. Yours was just a big blob, so the teacher helped you with yours. You really like art class.

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

June 15, 2009

This morning we went to the library and got a library card and checked out some books! Your favorite part was the computers that they have there for kids. Then we went to the grocery store. That's about it for the day.

Monday, June 15, 2009

June 14, 2009

This morning we went to church and I had to stay with you again at bible class. You won't stay in there by yourself. So I sit there feeling like a big dork. Maybe next week you will stay by yourself.

Then in the afternoon we just stayed home. It's been so hot here. We worked on school stuff and you painted some pictures.

Sunday, June 14, 2009

June 13, 2009

Today was spent getting the house and food ready because Doug, Eleanor, Elizabeth, Benjamin, Nana and Papa were coming over for Papa's birthday dinner. You spent alot of time outside with Daddy. You love being outside with him. You fell asleep watching the Wiggles, and I was really glad because it allowed me some time to get some things done, since you don't really take naps that well anymore.

Around 5:30 everyone came over and we ate dinner and then you got to play outside for a little while with your cousins. I forgot to take any pictures. I really need to be better about that.

Saturday, June 13, 2009

June 12, 2009

Today we had gymnastics in the morning which I think you enjoyed. You participated well and listened to the teacher's instructions. Then we went to Kohl's to get some new sunglasses and then we went to eat at Schlotsky's. In the afternoon we went to the grocery stuff to get stuff for tomorrow because everyone is coming over to dinner for Papa's birthday. I'm making tacos.

Friday, June 12, 2009

June 11. 2009

Summer is just flying by, as usual. I try to just enjoy every day, but in the back of my mind is the fact that I will eventually have to go back to school. You have been so adorable lately and I love getting to spend my days with you. You are far from perfect though, and you do sometimes drive me crazy, like today when you broke my sunglasses.

We went to Chick-fil-A for lunch and you played on their playscape. You hardly ate anything though. Then we went to Nana's and Papa's because today is Papa's birthday. We stayed and visited for a little while, then we came home. We just played at home for the rest of the day.

Thursday, June 11, 2009

June 10, 2009

Today you stayed at Nana and Papa's for a little while because I had a doctor's appointment. Papa took you up to the pool and he said you liked to let the buckets dump on your head. Then I picked you up and we came home and just played inside. It has been very hot this week.

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

June 9, 2009

This morning we went to Wal-Mart, you like to ride in the big carts. Then in the afternoon you had art class where you got to paint a little wooden boat and paint a canvas. You love art class. You really like painting. You want me to stay in art class with you, you don't want me to wait in the hallway.

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

June 8, 2009

Your second day without the paci has gone well! You only had one incident where you were crying for it, and I took you to McDonalds so you could get a toy and ride in the car. You love to get out of the house and ride in the car, so I think that did the trick. This morning I had a doctor appointment and I took you with me. You did a really good job. Then we went to Target and I let you pick out a toy. I told you the ba fairy said we could get a toy. You picked out 2 babies, a little one and a big one. Then in the afternoon Nanny came over and brought you a beautiful blanket that she had made. She also got you a cash register and some water guns. I think you have enough toys for now. The toys are taking over our house and I don't know what to do with all of them. Sometimes I want to just throw everything away!

Monday, June 8, 2009

June 7, 2009

Today was a very exciting day! We finally got rid of your pacifier. Now, I know you are thinking that 4 years old is a little late, and it is, but we just hadn't done it yet. I was going to do it last summer, but you had your thumb surgery then we went on vacation, then I didn't do it over Christmas because I was tired, so I knew I had to do it this summer. So this morning we couldn't find it, so I figured this was as good of time as any. I told you the ba fairy came to get it. You call it a ba. And you did suprisingly well. You only had one time where you asked for it and the rest of the day you did great! I am so proud of you! I thought it was going to be terrible!

This morning we went to church and then we went out to eat at Serrano's. Then we went to get ice cream at Baskin Robbins with Nana. You got mint chocolate chip. You went to sleep without your ba. I am so relieved that it's over.

Today's big excitement was that we went to Tate's birthday party at Pump it Up. He is a little boy in your class. You love bouncy places and really enjoyed the party. You even went down the big slide, which in the past you would not do at all! You are getting so grown up and this is such a cute age. You say and do so many cute things. I wish I could just freeze time and make you stay this cute.

Then when we came home you played outside with Daddy. It was really hot and your cheeks were so red, but you love being outside with your Daddy.

This morning you had gymnastics and I was so proud of you because you stayed in class. The mommies couldn't stay in the class, we had to wait outside, and in the past, you would not have put up with that. But you did stay and participated in class. You really enjoyed it. Then later in the afternoon we went to the grocery store and you got to ride in the race car cart. You love those things, but they drive me crazy! They are so hard to steer.

Today was a fun day! You went to Nana's and Papa's while I had a doctor's appointment and then Elizabeth and Benjamin came over. You guys have so much fun together. I wish I would have taken some pics, but I didn't. I'm trying to take more pictures. Y'all ran through the sprinklers and ran around screaming outside. Then you got to take a bath in Nana's big tub. You really like her big tub.

This morning we went to the park that is right by our house. You played with a little girl that was there and you had a lot of fun. Then we came home and I tried to get you to take a nap, but you didn't. Then in the afternoon Grandpa Don and Grandma Carlene came over for a couple of hours. You really enjoyed having them here. Then we had tacos for dinner which you actually ate!

Second day of summer! You were whiney and you cried a lot for some reason. But we did manage to have some fun. We went to Nana and Papa's in the morning and we were going to go swimming, but there were some people working on the pool, so we went back to their house and you ran through the sprinkler. Then we came home and after you cried for about an hour about nothing, we went to art class. I didn't think it was going to go very well, but you ended up really liking it and didn't want to leave.

Today was my first official day of summer vacation. We woke up around 7:00 because Zoey was barking at something. We went to the teacher store for a few workbooks to work on alphabet and numbers. Then we went to the Arboretum and sat on the cows. You actually took a nap in your own bed! You haven't been sleeping in your bed at all so this was a first! Your room is so pretty. Then we worked on school for a little bit, talking about shapes.
