So Fun…..

 

I realized that I hadn’t had a chance to post pictures of Pate’s party.  It was a construction theme as the boy LOVES anything with wheels and it turned out super fun and super cute.  Thanks to all of our friends that came to play with us.  I didn’t get a ton of pictures as I had a house FULL of 2 years olds (and my husband is a disaster with our point and shoot camera ;-)) 

BUT I did get a couple!

Summer Splash Fun

So I had heard about this little splash pad in Crowley, but had never really researched it.  So today, we struck out.  We found it after several phone calls.  Turns out the drive is only 10 or so minutes from our house and it was super cute.

We got there, got the kids dressed, got out…..and the sun ducks behind the cloud and stays that way for our WHOLE visit.  The kids played for about 30 minutes before they were shivering and ready to go, but we had FUN and need some fun friends to go with us next time!

And I Thought We Skipped That Stage…

Aggie, knock on wood, has never been the hard to dress kiddo.  She will express her opinion, but it is usually a blanket statement.  I really want a dress, Mommy.  Done.  No problem.  I never had to make that sign about how my kid dressed herself so that we could run to the grocery store……

Guess who has suddenly developed a VERY STRONG SENSE OF STYLE??????

A Whole Hour Worth

So, we were having one of those moments that I NEEDED some entertainment NOW.  Dinner was cooking in the oven, but not quite ready and we really had to find something to do or the WWF was about to start.

I was freezing cold anyway, so we headed upstairs with water colors, paint brushes and sponges.  Funny, how just those few supplies could have provided us with an hour of fun.  We “decorated” and “cleaned” the shower while Mommy actually had time to let a facial mask sit and exfoliate!  

For all you goin’ greeners out there, we recycle like crazy, so please forgive the obvious waste of shower running water for an hour!  It was so worth it!

Some Recent News….

CHEESE

CHEESE

Aggie had her second appointment with the dentist this morning.  We ADORE him and his whole entire office.  They are super clean, efficient, quick, and wonderful with the kiddos.  Aggie got to go back by her big self for her cleaning and x-rays.  Every single person commented on how sweet and polite she was (I crossed my fingers that we could make it out before they changed their minds ;-))  She got a total A+ on every front except…..we have been busted.  My sweet baby girl still needs wants her pacifier when she sleeps 😦  I have admittedly been reluctant to do anything about it b/c I just didn’t want to go there, but he has put a definite “must do” on the whole thing.  SO starting directly after Christmas we will be diligently filling in a sticker chart for prizes and getting much less sleep.  (Jen, I just might be calling you mid-night since you seem to be awake anyway;-))

The Dr. even looked at Pate Man’s teeth and told us we were right on track. 

AND, on a plus, while sitting in the waiting room watching Pate flirt with the ladies, I rediscovered Family Fun magazine.  My sister used to have this subscription and I just LOVE it.  Great crafts, ideas, recipes etc.. that are actually DOABLE for busy families.  I browsed the website today and was equally impressed.  So check it out:

Some New Favorite Pics…

My friend Maricarol and her family joined us for our excursion at the Pumpkin Patch this year.  She was gracious enough to take some photos of us.  I think her pictures turned out much better than the ones that I tried to take of them.  Sorry about that girl…

Here are some of my favorites from that day.

The Good News is…

If you can’t quite figure out what it is you are seeing….the GOOD news is I found the remote control (HOORAY – as it was stuck on SportsCenter).  The BAD news is….it was in the dishwasher (the FULL cycle.)

Pretty sure it was this stinker….doesn’t he look worried?
