Spending lots of time with Allie!











We've spent lots of time with Allie over the last few weeks, and I had a bunch of super cute pictures that I had to load! We had tons of fun at Allie's 2nd birthday party (cupcakes were a hit with Carrington, and Trey loved to "pin the nose on Elmo"), and we were extra excited to playdate with Allie and visit the park.

Carrington's 4 words- 18 months old

Carrington is a gabby little girl, but she has almost no words. I thought Trey was a late talker, but Carrington is definitely taking her sweet time saying anything that makes sense. I guess we must be doing everything she wants, since she doesn't seem to be in a hurry to tell us anything specific! :)

So far, she has 4 words: Dada, Mama, Juice, and Shoes

I suppose those are the most important!

Trey's First Trip to the Dentist!!! 3 Years Old




Trey had his first visit with the dentist last week. He was such a brave boy and opened up his mouth extra wide so they could count, clean, and put on special vitamins. Because he was so great, he got to pick out a prize from the prize box- I thought FOR SURE he would pick the little GI Joes, but instead he chose a pretty green beaded necklace for "Baby Sweetheart" (Carrington), and when I told him how proud I was of him, he said he "already had a new Diego toothbrush as a prize". How sweet?!?! He had NO CAVITIES, and as a reward, we spent the day at Dan Nicholas Park on Saturday, where Trey got to fish, feed the ducks, and play on all the super cool playgrounds!

In 6 months we will go back to the dentist, and I was extra brave and made appointments for BOTH kids in October!!! :) I must have been feeling like Super Mom that afternoon!

Easter Fun 2012













Easter seems like months ago, and it's even hard for me to remember exactly what we did, but I know the reality is that is was only 2 weeks ago, and I should seriously be able remember. :)

Things I definitely remember: I was running a little bit behind for this entire holiday! The neighborhood hosted their annual Easter Egg Hunt, and we had decided to take Trey (since it was during Carrington's nap). That seems like it would be simple, but Doug ended up running late, and I was frantically texting Sarah (the host) asking her to please wait for Doug and Trey to get there, otherwise Trey would get no eggs! They BARELY made it on time, for Trey to have a blast grabbing as many eggs as he could find, but that was it. Trey wanted NOTHING to do with any of the other activities- no visiting the bunny, no face painting, so exactly 19 minutes later, Doug and Trey walked back through our front door. Talk about a bust!

Easter Eve, Doug and I stayed up late filling a ton of little plastic Easter eggs with candy, and then Doug took on the job of preparing the egg hunt. He hid those eggs EVERYWHERE!!! In the morning, we opened Easter baskets upstairs, and then let the kiddos loose on the first floor to search for all the eggs. They were so cute, and they both loved everything about it. I am going to take a quick moment to share what I put in their baskets. Trey's basket: Moon Dough, a flashlight, coloring books, activity books, stickers, and a Max and Ruby bowl. Carrington's basket: toy microphone, a harmonica, sunglasses, a coloring pack, and an activity book. I'm sharing these details because I want you to know that I always thought Easter baskets were for small items and candy- to be honest, I REALLY hesitated on even getting the sunglasses for Carrington and the flashlight for Trey (both were about $7.00). I was shocked to hear that many of our friends were giving huge (or at least what I consider to be huge) gifts on Easter. I'm not kidding- ride on Jeeps, new beds, dollhouses... what in the world? Since when did Easter equate to a birthday or Christmas???

Our other Easter traditions include church and Jesus :), the Douglas family (and the Guinness family too!), and we always go to Easter Brunch at Red Rocks. It was delicious, as always, and we had a wonderful time.

We spent the rest of the day relaxing (we had FAMILY nap time- woohoo!!!!), playing outside, and planting new flowers. It was fantastic!

Visiting some of our FAVORITE cousins!!!



Ok, I was doing awesome with the blog for about 2 weeks, and now it's been almost a month since I've written a thing! When I grow up, I am definitely going to be more consistent!

A few weeks ago, we finally got to spend some time with Evan and Drew- every time we have attempted this in the past, someone got horribly sick (the downside of playdating through Winter), so I hadn't gotten to spend any real time with Drew since he was a little guy (or at least as little as Big Man Drew can possibly be!). The kids had a great time playing (and mostly sharing). The only "hiccup" of the morning was as I was backing out of Becky's driveway to take the kiddos to lunch, I backed just a hair too far, and backed into her neighbor's mailbox... Yes, it was so sad :(. What a huge hassle!!! I hurriedly scribbled a note to the owner, asking them to call, and then spent the next week and half searching for the exact mailbox repair or replacement. Although this was not my first choice, the great thing was that when it was all said and done, and I had the mailbox completely fixed through a FANTASTIC company (thank GOD I have friends that work at Centex and Pulte that helped me track down the original installer)- the owner of the mailbox sent me such a sweet email telling me that my actions through the entire process were such a great example of character. Since I had an awful week, this email was just one of many sweet things that my friends (and strangers for that matter) did to make me feel better- and not because they knew what a terrible week I was having- it was just God's way of letting me know other people care! :)

Back to the playdate- the kids had a fabulous time, we got some adorable pictures, ate lunch and Qdoba, and ran around the fountains (which were not on, but still a blast to look at). We sure do love Cousin Becky, Evan, and Drew!!!
