(Not a lot of) pictures...

It's Sunday again, and I just realized I don't have many pictures to share again! I'm becoming a picture slacker. The days just fly by now that school is in session, and I just forget until the weekend.

Everyone is doing well. This week the girls will have their school pictures taken. I'm on week 2 of wearing my glasses...I have another appointment on Tuesday.

What a bunch of interesting news, huh? Boringgggggg.....

Here are the pictures I did take:

Reese having a blast swimming with her Daddy. She was giggling and squealing up a storm! And, yes, that is a sprig of leaves she has in her hand. What can I say? The girl LOVES leaves!

Doesn't this face have "Terrorizer" written all over it? I know this picture is blurry, but I love it. She ran towards me before I could focus.

This is her new thing...when I say NO...I try hard not to laugh when she does it!

Reese just sitting on the floor in my office...I think she was trying to get away from me, but I found her.

I know her hair looks stringy here, but I love her little face!

Last but not least, Paige at her Cheerio day she's going to turn into a big Cheerio!

Have a great week!

Another Sunday...

It's Sunday again...already! Everyone has had a good week around here. Reese and Paige had a good week at school. Tuesday was Grandparents Day, and the girls had FIVE of their grandparents visit their classrooms! Some of grands had to work, but they definitely had a good showing.

I am having somewhat of an eye crisis. Well, not really a crisis, but still. I had an eye exam last week in order to get some new contacts. Come to find out, my eyes are getting worse, and now they both have astigmatisms. I've had to take a break from wearing my contacts for the past week, and I go back to the doctor on Tuesday to see if they've had any change. Apparently, wearing the contacts helps mold your eyes to the shape they are, and mine are starting to become shaped like footballs instead of basketballs. Hopefully wearing my glasses for a while has helped them reshape themselves. I didn't know this was possible, but according to Dr. Miller, it is. I'll probably have to wind up ordering special, more expensive contacts (of course) and new glasses. My vision is HORRIBLE...I can't even make out black ink on the letter chart, let alone that gigantic E. I'll keep you posted...I may be wearing glasses from here on out, which is not fun when you teach spinning for a living! Sweaty face + glasses = Disaster.

I just realized that I don't have a lot of pictures this week. But here's what I have...

I never fix Paige's hair like this, but this morning when she woke up, her hair was so she had stuck her finger in a light socket. Her bangs were sticking straight out and they wouldn't lay down at all. I had to get them out of her face, and I just had to take a picture!

That's it for this week. Have a good one!

5-year Check-Up

Reese saw Dr. LaRue for her 5-year check-up on Tuesday. She got a great report! She is 43 pounds and nearly 43 inches tall! Ummm...I'm only 62 inches, so she's definitely going to surpass me, for sure! Here we are waiting on the doctor... Her forehead bruise is healing from her falling off the couch last week!

The usual...pool pictures...

Reesie pool pics...well, around-the-pool pics. She only got in for a quick dip and then was back to leaf hunting.

What a goofball! She is the queen of silly faces.

Silly girls...

I'm blocking you, Mom.

More silly goose pictures...

Happy 5th Birthday, Reese!

Well, the day finally came...Reese turned FIVE years old on Friday! I never realized how fast time flies until I had children. I spent Friday saying to myself, "This time five years ago, my water broke. This time five years ago, I was pushing. This time five years ago, Reese was born!" I remember is as clearly as if it happened yesterday.

We had the family over on Saturday to celebrate. I made my rainbow cake again, and this one turned out so much better than my practice one :) I also made a chocolate piggy cake...haha. He didn't turn out as cute as I'd hoped, but he was still delicious. Reese's favorite birthday gift was a Dora guitar from her Aunt Jamie. She also got a new CD player for her bedroom, some books, some of her favorite snacks, some new sneakers, a few clothes & $350! This kid has more money than I do in her savings account!

Both girls had a great week at school. This week, they get to take a field trip to the fire station. Reese will visit Dr. LaRue tomorrow after school for her 5-year checkup. I can't wait to see how tall she is. She will be taller than I am in no time (which isn't very tall, but still...)!

Here are this week's pictures:

The silly geese being silly geese!

Mrs. Monique took these beautiful photos of Reese at school the other day! I love them both.

More cute Reese pictures...note: the huge bruise on her forehead is from her falling off the couch Friday after school. I was just about to take her outside for a little birthday photo shoot when it happened. A huge goose egg formed the photoshoot will have to wait!

The birthday cakes! (Don't laugh at my pig!)

Reese & her Aunt Jamie

Reese and Papa David

Reese, her daddy & her Great-Great-Grandma (Mamaw) She's 96!

Reese & her Great-Granny Clifford

As you can see, Reese had no interest in posing for ANY of these I had to get what I could. Doesn't she look just thrilled that it's her birthday party?

Her Dora guitar...she loved this. Thanks, Aunt Jamie!

She also loved these new Dora books :)

Let's not forget this little mess maker!
