More pool pictures & first day of school

Hey there!  I have more cute pictures of the girls to share this week.  Doing what, you ask?  Swimming and splashing, of course :)

Here's Reese balancing on the rope...still her favorite thing to do.

Playing with her Daddy is pretty high up on the list, too.

Who knows what this face was for...

My naturally beautiful sweet girl :)


Ugh....there's my annoying sister.  Blah.

It's a rare thing to get all of these people in the same picture.  I love these because it's real life and this is how it goes.  No posing with these little people :)

Meanwhile, back on the steps...Splashzilla.

The many faces of Miss Pickles...


Back in the water...being her usual silly self!

Taking a break on the chair with Daddy...I love these pics!

Daddy is very popular at pool time...from one daughter to the next.  Sometimes they get jealous when he's playing with the other one.

Okay, onto the First Day of School pictures.  I personally think they're pretty sad.  I'm the only one who gets excited about the big first day.  The girls really DO love school.  They just don't understand why I'm stopping them from getting into the car first thing in the morning.  They have a strict routine.  As soon as the door opens in the morning, they go straight to the car.  Paige looks tired and dazed, and Reese looks very upset.  I really wish I could do the cute chalkboards with all the fun stats on them like all the other moms do, but that just ain't happening over here.  No matter how sad the pictures are, I'm still going to take them. 

Oh, and Reese totes that winter jacket around everywhere.  She sleeps with it every night and takes it in the car with her every morning.  She loves that thing!  And it doesn't matter what the temperature is outside, either.

That's it for now.  Have a great week!

Very cute August pics :)

Hello, blog readers :)  I have lots of cute pictures to share today.  These are all from August.  These girls have quite the personalities, as you will see in these photos...

Here's Pip one day...just playing around and being silly.

Meanwhile, on the couch....we have Miss Serious.  It's against her policy to be in a giggly mood at the same time as her sister.

I'm just going to ignore you while I browse through this here catalog.  Go back to taking pictures of my annoying little sister, please.

What would a Sunday post be without some pool pics, right?!  Nothing new to report on the pool front...just some cute little girls having a great time :)

This is how Reese usually feels about Paige being near her...haha.  That's because Paige is constantly trying to splash her, and Reese can't stand that.  They're so opposite!

This is how Reese meditates while in the submerging her ears so everything is quiet.  She seems quite at peace when she's doing this.

I love when she poses like this and smiles!  Adorable.

Sometimes playing in puddles is way more fun than the actual pool.

Another day...balancing on the rope.  She loves this.

Surprise, surprise....this kid is throwing the rings.

A rare few photos of them together.  One day I'm hoping to get them actually touching or hugging.  A mom can dream, right?

One day Pip snuck up behind me while I was sitting at my desk and she just smiled and giggled.  The camera was right there.  I love the lighting on this one...very natural.

Is it just me, or does she look like a teenager here?  What is it about this that makes her look old?  I love this little blue-eyed blondie :)

That's it for now.  I have more pics in my phone that I haven't transferred yet.  Hopefully I'll get to those next week.  Thanks for visiting us!  Have a great week.
