What's Wrong with this Picture?

Shouldn't it be Mom and Dad sleeping in Mom and Dad's bed?

Rainy nights with thunder and lightning aren't fun at any age... especially when one has to share their bed with these tossers and turners!

Sleep Tight!

It's Raining, It's Pouring..

..this Mommy wishes she was snoring!!

Cold rainy days are perfect weather for a nice afternoon nap, unfortunately all my girls want to do is get an "umderella" and go outside to play! Oh, to have the energy of a four year old! : )

In my attempt to finally get caught up on my blog, I just uploaded pictures from my camera to my computer. There were pictures on there from way back in October!! I found a file of pictures that I didn't remember and didn't quite understand...

I wondered who took them...

...and then I came across this one... BUSTED!!

Gotta love a willing participant in a photoshoot... even if you get the sillies!

Treasure Hunt

Today, although not perfect, the weather was warm enough to get outside for a little bit. My outside girls were thrilled to get to go on a walk and hunt for a list of 'treasures' I made them. Lila took my little camera to document our findings.
Here are a few of our 'treasures'...
a big leaf...

stop sign...

flag... (Baylor Bears would have to work)

flower... this one was hard... don't tell Lila this is actually a weed..

our list said dog or cat... we counted this statue/yard art..

bug... yard art had to stand in again...


And of course there were some silly pictures as well..

And even a few pictures of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus... since Rose has arrived we've been very conscience of babies...

My parents with baby Rose..

Look at this perfect little cutie...

Absolutely Adorable! We're smitten with our new baby. After seeing her first picture, Lila said, "Oh, Mommy! She's gorgeous!" and Emily, "I want one!" Me too Emi! : )

Big Brother...

Sweet Baby Rose has been mentioned in countless prayers since we first heard she would be joining us and we are so thankful to our Gracious, Loving Father for another perfect blessing! I'm so in love...

Belated Christmas

Mimi and Poppa came up to celebrate a belated Christmas with us. The girls were very excited that Santa left presents for them at their house as well. The girls love all their new toys, but I think Emily was most excited about her "Snow Wipe" apron and baby from Mimi and Poppa and her wooden cupcake set from Uncle Buck and Aunt Shannon.

Lila loved her new Sleeping Beauty baby doll, Little Pony sets, Emily's big wheel, and her Leapster.

Actually the Leapster was such a big hit that sharing was way too hard and Mimi caved in and bought one for Emily the next day! Now we hear Leapster music coming from the girls' rooms when they are supposed to be going to sleep... at least they are learning???

Yea Emily!

At long last....

Emily has exited the Early Childhood Intervention Program!!

Yea Emily!
We absolutely loved our ECI therapists and I'm sure Emily will miss her playdates, but we are thrilled to have that stage in our lives behind us!

So, congratulations little graduate! We are so very proud of you and all your accomplishments!
