About Time For Some Pics

Who would have thought that Maci Sue would actually be interested in putting on make-up? Yep, believe it! She was quit proud of herself too!

Didn't Abagail do a great job on her make-up!!! Beautiful:))

I finally got a chance to blog & I have the wrong camera. So, hope you enjoy the few pics I could post. Many more to come too!

We had a great Christmas. . . or should I say, 10 Christmas's. We have had a very busy month of December & happy one at that. The girls got everything they every asked for & more. Ryan & I were as lucky too!

Hope everyone has a great New Year!!

Christmas Morning

Time Flies

I know that I've been slacking a bit on any recent posts. . . but oh man does time fly! Thanksgiving was here, now gone, & x-mas is knocking at the back door. We've already attending one x-mas party, another one this weekend & it's a blur from then on. I LOVE IT!!! Lots of running to see lots of family!! We have been fortunate to only have a 'Cold' present in our house, which we all had at one time and lasted only a week, a very LONG week may I say. But, no one had to miss work or school. I toughed it out, Ryan went to the doctor for an antibiotic, & the girls got lots of TLC from their grandma's (Thanks NaNa, MawMaw Flo, & G for caring for them sick baby-girls) Everyone in our house is now better & anxious as ever for the Christmas Holiday. I have tons of pics to post, but will have to do so with time. Bare with me & check back soon to see what we've been up to!!!

Oh yeah. . . Abagail is going to live the dream tomorrow . . . she is going to see the 'Rockettes' with Ryan's mom-Robbyn, Robbyn's friend-Mende & Mende's daughter/Abagail's friend-Ava. I don't know about Ava, but Abagail can't hardly sleep knowing she gets to go see the dancing girls perform:) Hope you all have lots of fun & take pictures!!

Preschool Plus

Both Abagail & Maci have been in preschool since June of this year. They only go two days a week & love it. (The other three days Ryan's Grandma Flo & my Mom watch the girls & we are blessed to have them) Just this week, I started counting out loud for some reason, I said ONE, Maci then hollered from across the room, TWO, me-THREE, Maci-THREE, me-FOUR, Maci-FIVE, me-SIX, Maci-SEVEN, ect to TEN. The only mess-up was the #3. Okay, so I didn't even know that she knew any number higher that 3. Maci is only 1yr & 8 1/2 months old & knows how to count to 10! I think that's great! This is just one of many pluses from attending preschool.

Two hours waiting in line with two toddlers was not the most of fun, but the girls reaction getting to meet Barney in person was priceless. Abagail & Maci both loved seeing Barney & I was happy for them seeing their excitement.

Happy Halloween!!!

Princess Abagail & Poodle Maci Sue

Curls Galore!

Abagail's first experience with sponge rollers was a success! She loved them. . . I remember growing up & my mom would put sponge rollers in my hair. It hurt when she put them in, they were so tight that I felt like I was getting a face lift, so uncomfortable to sleep in & they pulled my hair when Mom took them out. Needless to say, I hated them! Abagail on the other hand wants to leave them in her hair. She cried when I took them out for her to go to preschool. Guess we'll be seeing her as a Shirley Temple look-a-like for awhile, as she has wanted me to put them in her hair every night since.

Pumpkin Patch 2008

The most loved part of the pumpkin patch had to be the corn.

Pumpkin Patch Continued

The girls had an absolute blast at the pumpkin patch! It was a little chilly, but great time to have gone because there weren't but a dozen other visitors there. It was like we had the place to ourselves. Cheap Fun Too!

Attempt. . .

Here's our latest attempt of a family picture. Unfortunately it wasn't the best. It's hard for two very active toddlers & a picture hating husband to all cooperate:) As much as I LOVE pictures & taking them, Ryan is the complete opposite -notice the fake smile. BUT, I love him for at least giving me that:)

Ketchup. . . A FOOD GROUP???

Can you consider Ketchup a food group or at least a vegetable? Notice where her meal is. . . not on the plate:) Maci loves ketchup & can eat it by the spoonful or at least by the tongueful. I've heard of eggs with ketchup, but dipping your green beans, pizza, and anything else on your plate in ketchup??? yummm right?
Gotta love her!!!

The Best of Both Worlds

I love this pic!!!

PaPa Mike & NaNa with the girls
PaPa Eddie & Gee with the girls

Even though the above pictures aren't picture perfect. . . our girls sure do have it perfect. They could not have any better Grandparents that love them any more than Ryan's & my parents.


We attended a wedding reception this weekend & oh my, did the girls have a blast. Abagail went wild out on the dance floor & Maci as well, loved the music. We are looking forward to another family wedding next weekend. Seeing the girls on the dance floor makes me realize that they sure are growing up.

Abagail weighed in at 31 pounds (50%) & is 38 1/4 inches tall (75%)
Maci Sue weighed in at 25 lbs (50%) & is 33 1/2 inches tall (90%)

We are truly blessed with two healthy, amazing children!!!

Look who's 3!!!

Check it out. . . Abagail turned THREE!!!
Happy Birthday to Abagail!
Gee gave this Snow White outfit to Abagail on her birthday & Abagail is so proud of it!!!

Few Present Pics

Ryan & I got Abagail some skates, sit n spin, movies, & a desk for her birthday. I believe she loved them all, but poor Maci. She didn't like the idea of Abagail getting presents & not her. Maci really likes Abagail's new desk but Abagail isn't very good about sharing it with her.
