bye bye swing video



Sorry that you have to tilt your head to watch this video. LOL!!

Bye Bye Swing

We can't keep up. She is growing so much, every time I turn around it's something new. She's either growing out of her clothes, the bumbo, and now...the swing. I went to get Macy up from her nap one day and this is how we (me and Abby) found her. video to follow

Gymnastics, part 2

Katy is such a great friend to come and help out at Gymnastics while Daddy was out of town. I was hoping that maybe Abby would try more of the circuits with her there. Although that didn't happen, we still had fun. :)







The teacher is the girl in the green. Abby would slide down backwards on this instead of rolling down it. LOL!! Obviously, the teacher was not impressed.

This was so cute. The teacher raised the bar so that all the kids wouldn't be able to reach the floor with their feet. Notsomuch. My sweet pretty tall girl thought this circuit was easy!! LOL!!

Abby Calls Granny



Sometimes I wish I had cameras in my house to catch things that I miss. Abby had pulled a chair up to the counter and decided she would get the phone and call Granny. Before I started videoing her, she was saying "Hi Granny, watcha doin?, I'm fine, Oh really?" Then she would laugh as if Granny said something funny. Just precious. Above is the little bit of the "conversation"she had with Granny.

GYMNASTICS

Not sure that Abby will be the next Michael Phelps, so we tried Gymnastics. She was definitely the prettiest little girl there.


She would try anything that didn't require her flipping or rolling over in any kind of way. Here she was supposed to put her hands on the little hand stickers and her feet on the wall. She tried it once and put one foot on the wall and refused to try it again.
She loved the trampoline, but wouldn't actually let her feet come off the trampoline, unless you were holding her hands and pulling her up. She would just bounce with her knees.



"Can you hold me please?"



Daddy and his baby girl


Daddy tries to help.


I should have taken a picture of her on the "balance beam". She loved it!! She also loved when they would sit together and sing songs. All the other circuits were not her favorite. LOL!! Look for more pictures to come of our Gymnastics adventures!

Happy Birthday Papa!

We made a trip up to OK to wish Papa a Happy Birthday!!






MK loved the little book that Aunt Lou was reading to her.

COUSINS wearing fake fingernails, aka marker lids.




Last day of school

The last day of school is so bittersweet for me. Another year has come and gone and these girls are growing up so fast. Abby's last day was so fun for her. It was "Water-Splash" day as well. :) She got to wear her swimsuit to start off the day!
Cheese!!
Macy Kate ready for her last day as well. :)

love her.
Sweet Ms. Kelly. Abby had such a great year and grew so much creatively. Ms. Kelly, Ms. Jen and Ms. Donna were wonderful! She still asks sometimes if she is going to go and see them. She gets so confused because her school is at our church and over the summer it's just staff care. She doesn't know who her teacher will be from day to day! lol!!!



Sweet Ms. Adrianne. She was Abby's teacher when she was a baby and we were lucky enough to get to have her be MK's first teacher!! MK loved her!! Notice the sweet tears in her eyes. She's loves my babies and we love her. She is actually not going to teach this next year and home school her kids. Although our school will losing a wonderful teacher, her kids are getting the best one! We love you Ms. Adrianne!!


Last day of school treats!!



We are enjoying our summer thus far and looking forward to a new school year in just a little over a month. I can't believe the summer is almost over! :(

Bye Bye Bumbo

It's been a couple of months ago now, but this was taken on the last day that she "sat" in her Bumbo. Sweet Legs.My little girl is growing up so fast.


Our last swim lesson

Enjoying a treat before her last Swim Lesson

She is always such a happy baby.


Stan was running late so the teacher, Miss Kaitlyn, worked with Abby. She got special teacher attention during her last lesson.
"Can we just talk instead of swimming?"



"Hi Mommy, I got all the ducks!"

Elbow, Elbow, Belly, Knee. This is how you get out of the pool. Getting out is Abby's best swimming technique. LOL!


Swimming to the ducks


Sweet girl! She wanted to swim so bad.

Joann & Sal's Wedding 5-21-11

My sweet friend Joann married her high school sweetheart, Sal on 5-21-11. Erika, Liz and I have waited YEARS for this day. She was a beautiful bride. Such a great day!


Since Macy Kate didn't have a date to the wedding, I told her I would share mine with her.
Liz, Christie, Erika, Joann, Charity, & me


I seriously think that Erika could have a part-time job as a live "Dora the Explorer" and get paid to attend little girls B-day parties. She's Dora all grown up....beautiful! :)
Here we are! Our friendship is going on 10+years now.


The Bride!!


Pretty girls
