Preparing for a party

I've been too busy preparing for Abagail's 3rd birthday party that I haven't had time to post any pics. So, while I had a quick second I thought I'd jot down some things about the girls.

Abagail is really excited about her birthday party coming up, I believe she has decided on a theme. First she said that she wanted a Wizard of Oz Birthday, then changed her mind to Barney, then changed her mind again to Tinker-Belle, finally decided on Snow White. I didn't realize it was such a hard decision for an almost 3 year old to make. I believe that next year, I'll just decide for her:)

Maci is literally obsessed with Barney now. She wakes up every morning asking for Barney & goes to bed every night crying Barney. (Do you know how hard it is to find a stuffed toy Barney. . . I'm just going to have to order one on-line.) When I brought the girls home from school yesterday, Maci went straight up to Ryan & said 'Barney, Barney, get-it, get-it, hurry, now, hurry' Maci didn't just say this, she screamed it till Ryan got Barney turned on.

I'll post birthday pics the first of next week. I'm hoping for a warm weekend:)

Well, Maci took her first big fall on Saturday. Not real sure how many of our concrete steps she went tumbling down, but I'm guessing it was all 4 of them:( I felt terrible when I heard her holler Momma, laying face down on the sidewalk. Maci didn't even really cry. I gave her a popsicle & she was back in good spirits. It could have been a lot worse.
Sunday night. . . looking better.

Happy Birthday Uncle Chip!

My brother Chip turned 25 this week. We got together for a birthday celebration last night. Abagail was so excited that it was Chip's birthday, cause she knows that her birthday is after his:)


The past week we have had a little visitor. A tree frog of some kind has appeared on our window. The girls liked the frog from the inside of the house, but sure didn't want to go outside to see it.

Tinker Belle

My Mom decides that as prissy as Abagail is, she just knew that Abagail would love to play dress up. So, Mom got Abagail a Tinker Belle outfit and just as she thought, Abagail LOVED it. She wore it all evening yesterday, wouldn't take a bath because she didn't want to take it off (which was okay since the girls were at MawMaw Flo's yesterday & she always gives her a bath), then she had to sleep in it. Guess Abagail loves dress-up, not only with jewelry & tiaras, but with costumes too!!

1st set of pig-tails

Yepee!!! Maci official has enough hair for a set of pig-tails! It only took her a year & a half, but she's there. In comparison, Abagail had enough hair for pig-tails when she was 11 months old. Maci's hair is thinner, blonder, & less curl than Abagail was at her age. Yet, I believe the curl will catch up.

Better Late Than Never

Here we are in Mount Pleasant Iowa, picking up Abagail from her vacation with her Gee & Paw Paw. We spent the day up there, to see what all the excitement was about. Ummm. . . I guess the excitement was over just a bunch of tractors??? Not really my 'cup of tea,' but Abagail sure thought it was a blast.

Well, Abagail is back home & has been since Saturday when Ryan & I drove up to get her from her vacation in Iowa with my parents. I was so excited to see her, 4 days away from Abagail was too long:) I have lots of pics to post of her vacation but have been so busy with work that it may be another day before I get around to it. Check back soon to see what's new!
