Brielle, 2years and 9months

I've been waiting a long time for this!! I finally painted B's toenails for the first time.  I've wanted to do it for forever now but decide to wait until she could really get excited about it as well.
 That way we could have a mother daughter moment about it!!!

She loved them!

It wasn't an hour later it all came off from playing in the pool haha! I love having a girl!

I was in a sweet kind of mood a couple days ago and decided to bake some pumpkin cookies.  Brielle had fun decorating them....the last time we did this was Valentines and she's come a long way since then, she's more coordinated and and interested.   Fall is my number one favorite season and summer is a close second.

Studio Movie Grill does a summer series for the little ones all summer long.  The tickets are only $1 for kids and $2 for adults.  We decided to go yesterday to celebrate B's 2 year and 9 month birthday!  

Charolette's web was the movie this week.  Love it!

First time at the movies!  She's such a big girl now!

I'd never been to one of these but it was really cool, they even serve cocktails!
Landon and I will have to come back for a date night!

Already into it and it's just the previews haha!  The last time we went to something like this was the Texas show in Palo Duro Canyon last summer, she sat through almost the whole thing but talked out loud a lot!  She was soooo good in the movie, she whispered the whole time and only squirmed around a little half way through the movie! I'm excited we can probably take her to regular movies and not the ones filled with  talkative toddlers ha!

We enjoyed a turkey burger and sweet potato fries.

I'm not gonna lie, when we walked out of the movie I was a little teary eyed.  I feel so blessed to get to spend my days doing this kind of stuff with my daughter!  I get to watch her grow up which is happening way to quick.  I just love spending time with her, I can't get enough of her! She's so funny and so smart and incredibly sweet! She's my little buddy!!! Of course when we got in the car the song on the radio was
"It Won't Be Like This For Long",
 I think it was God telling me I could go ahead and cry : ) and I did.  

We celebrated the day with buying Bree a new outfit.  Time to put the Pj's away.
 This is what Brielle chose for her...

My beautiful not so little baby.

She cracked me up this week, we were playing with her puzzles and she asked me if she had the right piece. I said "yes" and she said "are you kidding me!"  I about died laughing.  Where does she get this stuff!?

Landon And All His Girls!

We wanted to show the girls our house we are planning to buy so we drove to Flower Mound and ate there as well. Bless Landon's heart, he is literally surrounded by girls all the time with a wife, daughter, female dog, mom, sister, step mom, step sister, and 3 sister in laws haha!

Mermaid time!!!

We watched this documentary before Kaytie came.....I showed it to her when she got here and needless to say it was our topic of the weekend.  I got a pretty awesome video of Kaytie being a mermaid but she'd kill me if I posted it.  I will save it forever though for my own enjoyment! Ps, I know believe in mermaids!

On our last day together we spent some time in Southlakes square.  Kaytie and I pretended we wanted to eat at the Cheescake Factory (we do love that place) but really we just wanted to do a little shopping at Lola's one of our favorite new stores!!!

The balloon man.  He was good.

In awe of her prize!

She asked for a Dumbo of course.

Juquitas lettuce tacos, never heard of this but they looked scrump-dilly-uptious!

Kaytie was beside herself with a goat cheese, beet and artichoke meal! That's why she's so different ha!

Before she left we had to play one more trick on Landon........

She did get all the way in and scared the bajesus out of him ha, wish I had caught his reaction on camera.
It was a great weekend and I love every minute of getting to spend time with my sweet family!
Landon's comment when they left was "I was glad to have all my girls here"

Kaytie and Nonna Come To Visit

My sister in law Kaytie came and stayed with me last week. We were so excited to have her all to ourselves!  When she got to town one of the first things we had to do was go visit the Colemans and introduce Kaytie to the new baby.

We met everyone at Chicken Express of course.  The Coleman's new place of business!

The man of the hour and the best waiter we'd ever had!

On our way to their house we passed this field.  Kaytie starts yelling "A HIPPO! A HIPPO! Turn here!"  I was like "what the heck?" but secretly wanted there to be a hippo!  We couldn't pull around and get a good view so we assumed it was a huge pig. Kaytie still thought she saw a hippo ha! 
The kids got to play and Emily and I got to tell horror stories about birth and babies. Needless to say Kaytie will defiantly not be having kids anytime soon!
Brielle teaching Levi how to drink with a straw.

Little Levi showing us his lion roar.  He has to crouch down to get himself ready!

Sweetest little lion I've ever seen!

On our way home, turns out the hippo was a cow.  Go figure.

We got home and the major munchies so we made a run to the store.

This is what happens after too much sugar!  Mermaid time!

It's like having a sleepover with your friend when you were little.  We were so giggly and didn't know why,
 I just love Kaytie and feel blessed to have a sister in law I get a along with so well with and love so much!
Landon's mom flew in that night to spend the last two days with us.
 They were a bit tired of mine and Kaytie's shenanigans ha!

I took the girls to the downtown aquarium.  There was a guy playing a saxophone.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was the song of choice, it was cute.

The monkey had a beard!

I would die for one of these. They were literally the size of my fist! Where can I get one!

Oops, stood a little close to the air conditioner, Marilyn Monroe moment.

Kaytie could be in a hair commercial in this one!

Juquita likes to collect smashed imprinted pennies.
Lucky for her they had one of those machines at the aquarium.

Shopping, Swimming, Eating, Aquarium, Magic Mike.....who wouldn't consider this a fab weekend!
