Happy Happy Birthday!!

Kam and Kourt are three!!! Can you believe it has been three years? I cannot believe that we have had them that long. They are growing up so fast. Kamryn loves horses. She wants to be an "animal doctor" when she grows up and is really interested in all kinds of animals but horses are her favorite. She can spot one a mile away whether in a movie, on the side of the road or on someone's clothing. Kourtney doesn't have a specific thing she loves as much as Kam loves horses but she does like cows and cats. She wants to be a "mommy" when she grows up. She is very prissy and always carries her purse (which is actually a huge duck bag full of little things - lip gloss, cars, brush, books, jewelry, dolls, camera, etc). She brings her "duckie bag" everywhere! They love going to school - Mother's Morning Out - two days a week. They are learning their letters and they love listening to bible stories and singing songs! They also love going to Puggles on Wednesday nights where they do more singing, have bible lessons and enjoy playing with their friends. They are so smart and articulate! They know all about Karlee's gymnastics and Kendall's t-ball and love to go watch their big sisters perform. They love playing with each other and I enjoy listening to the conversations they have. It is quite entertaining. They often pretend they are other people and hearing them repeat what they have heard others say is very interesting. What a blessing they are to us!!

Play Ball!!

Kendall's first day of t-ball practice. She had a great practice - she can throw and catch really well. She needs a little work on her hitting - sometimes she hits the tee. She loved it and can't wait until time for her first game.

All-Around Champion!!!

Karlee had her first meet of the season this past weekend. The Judges Blast-Off was held in Roswell and Karlee did great. She was all excitement and adrenaline and no trace of nervousness!! We could not believe how calm she was. She had a beautiful bar routine but she took a few steps on her dismount (she is too powerful!) and earned a 8.9. Then she moved on to beam where she scored a 9.1 and floor where she scored a 9.4 and finally finished on vault with a score of 9.2. Her all-around score was a 36.6! All of these were first place scores making her the All-Around Champion!! Way to go Karlee! We are so proud of you.

First Day of School . . . Again!

Kourt and Kam had their first day of school today. They are going to Mother's Morning Out (MMO) at our church two mornings a week. They were so excited to be going. You can tell they have big sisters because the night before they had to lay out their clothes just like they have seen Karlee and Kendall do. They love their teachers, Ms. Jackie and Miss Nicole. They are learning letters, colors, numbers and shapes. They get to play in the playroom and have special snacks. The first day was a huge success and they can't wait to go back tomorrow.

First Day of School

The big day finally arrived! Karlee starting 2nd grade and Kendall starting pre-K. They were up at the crack of dawn ready to go. The had new outfits that they had picked out the night before and a delicious breakfast of cinnamon rolls, bacon and juice. Then they headed out the door to begin a new year.

Kendall was not thrilled with school today when I picked her up. She had just finished with "nap time" and she DID NOT like it. "You can't even say anything Momma!" she told me. You know Kendall is not going to like anything where you have to be still and quiet. Once she gets used to it, I think it will be much better. After she got home and had her special afterschool snack (see below), she felt better. Later she told us about how much fun she had on the playground and at centers. She even said she made a new friend but couldn't remember his name. Karlee had a great day. She brought this cute cup I made for her new teacher. You can get your own for yourself in any deign by clicking the Pigtails & Polkadots button on the left.

She was excited about having art on her first day - she is excited about the project they will be working on this semester. It will be a portrait of what they want to be when they grow up. Most of you that know Karlee can probably guess what it will be - but you will have to wait until Christmas to find out for sure! She also had her 2nd homework assignment (her first was the night before school started!). I think it is going to be a great year for Karlee and Kendall!!

A New Start

I have been absent from blogging for a while but am back now and ready to go!! I could try to catch you up on all you have missed but there are no pictures to go along with them - my hard drive crashed and all my data (including pictures) was lost. So, I will just tell you that we have had a busy, fun-filled summer with several trips to SSI, NJ and most often, the pool!!! Here are the few pictures that I have taken since I lost all of the others.

Tomorrow is a big day as we have meet the teacher for Karlee's new 2nd grade class and for Kendall's new Pre-K class!!! Look for more pics tomorrow.

Easter/Mother's Day

The girls had beautiful Easter dresses so they wore them again for mother's day and I was able to get some cute pictures with them. We had a great Easter week - egg hunts at school, egg hunt with Ken's family, egg hunt with my family, a visit from the Easter Bunny, church and lots of candy and some really cute new outfits!

Kendall's Sweet Shoppe

Kendall's Sweet Shoppe was a huge success!! The kids had a blast, enjoyed some yummy sweets including cupcakes, make-your-own ice cream sundaes and lots of goodies from the sweet shoppe. Kendall loved playing with all her friends on the playground and in the bouncy house. She got some great gifts from family and friends and enjoyed LOTS of candy!!!!!
