Around The House

With the weather lately being either blazing hot, or pouring down rain, we have been spending more time indoors. The girls are starting to play with their toys together, although there have been a few times when they wanted the same toy. Looks like we are getting to that stage.
Regardless of who has what toy, Raylee & Brinn are constantly coming up with new ways to entertain not only themselves, but US most of all. Enjoy!

                                Brinn is pretty proud of her latest accomplishments.



Raylee has taken an interest in all things books. Makes this bookworm's heart happy.



Lots of naps happening around here.



Brinn is usually being her happy self.



However, she is not always happy. There are some tough moments, as well. That little lip! :(


We are still working on potty training. The hardest thing so far is Raylee realizing before she has to go, rather than after. She may not even realize it yet. Everytime I ask her if she has to go potty, she says "Yes!" Then we get in there and nada. She is an expert at washing her hands, and brushing her teeth.


There are daily struggles trying to make sure I've spent as much time as I can with the girls, while trying to keep the house clean(or not looking like a tornado came through), and a somewhat nutritious dinner on the table. 
  Mostly though, Raylee & Brinn are curious, outgoing, sweet, happy & healthy girls. They make everyday exciting, and I cannot wait to see what is next.


I love you Raylee Michelle!


I love you Brinn Danielle!




Hope everyone has a great day!

Brinn's 1st Steps

Brinn has been so close to walking. This morning I managed to catch her taking a few steps on my camera phone. Not the best quality, and ignore my voice, but I'm sure she will do it again. ;)

Happy Saturday!

Memorial Day & the big 2-8!

Sorry about the lack of posts again. Life has been complicated, and it's hard to keep track of all my responsibilities at all times. This blog is what takes a back seat.

However, that does not mean I am not taking pictures constantly, and am trying to be consistent in documenting these days of our lives.

Anyways, I had a good birthday, and am ready for what this 28th year brings.

On to some photos from Memorial Weekend. ~sigh . I realize that was last month, but I promise the pictures are just as cute!

This is a video of the girls in the little pool together. Brinn was kicking!

Well, there are more posts and pictures, but that is all for now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Hello June

June is here, and although it will be hot, it brings some fun things like my birthday, and Father's day. I also have some goals this month that include getting the girls passport applications completed. These pictures are mostly random from my camera.

Raylee has started smiling for the camera. Maybe she finally figured out that the picture taking stops faster if she does, or maybe she thinks that if she smiles then she will get to use the camera.


Raylee has finally figured out how to take pictures. This was one of the first that was in focus. Are you shocked I'm laying on the couch? :)



Although most of the pictures that Raylee took were some varition of the following.




Brinn finally cut 4 teeth on top at once. We are all relieved that she is not in as much pain, and is back to being a happy girl.



This outfit from Grandma describes her well , "Born Happy!"


Trying to get a picture before she pulls the bow off :)


Picture w/ Daddy before he left for work. The three biggest blessings I could have been given.


Next up are pictures from my cellphone, and pictures from our time at the river for Memorial Day.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Padre Island - May 2012

This past weekend we made the drive down to Padre Island, to the beach house that my Dad & Lenora own. My sister was able to meet us, and we had a few days of fun in the sun. Raylee loved the beach, and it was so nice to get away from the madness of everyday life.

**Warning: This post has a lot of pictures!**

 Driving through downtown Houston




We made it to The Island!


Brinn checking things out.

1st time at the beach!

My sister, Amanda, clearing out the seaweed for us. We had the nicest spot on the beach, by far.









This is what Brinn did while we played.




Here is how good Raylee got on the boogie board. They are hauling it!

We all got a lot of sun, and the next day my sister and I decided to spend some quality time together. I had such a great time, and cannot wait for some more sister time. Love you Manda.








Raylee & her pretty flower.




We had a lot of fun at the beach, and are looking forward to our next trip down to visit.

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!
