Obviously I am lacking in the area of keeping out blog up to date.... But here a few pictures I took of the kids decked out in some Holiday attire! And Grandma Harrington~words or pictures do not do the advent calendar you sent the kids justice! It is beautiful and we feel so lucky to have received such a special gift! Obviously I am going to try again to get better pictures of the kids standing by it....they kind of had a meltdown. And to Granny~thank you so much for Georgia's Christmas panties and shirt! You did a GREAT job....we love them and you!
So here are some of the pictures I have taken so far....
There were have been alot of things going on this week so please scroll through the other posts after this one...there are other new posts!
Okay so this was Georgia's Birthday Party! We had a great time with our family and friends which I am so thankful too for being here to celebrate with us! Georgia had so much fun prancing around in her little tutu and eating everything in sight! I will have to do another post later about her 1 year stats... Thank you so much again to our family and our friends for making this WEEKEND so special! We love you all!
Today is my 30th Birthday! Yes I am older but I would like to think with age comes wisdom so I must be wise now right? But today is also Grandparents day at PCA and Lucas has been Star Student of the Week also! I need to get some pictures of this from my mom...I was not allowed to go because it was "Grandparents Day" not "Mommy's Day"! So moving on to the night....my sweet, loving husband surprised me with a GREAT birthday party! Catered by Rudy's BBQ and some of my sweet friends and family were there! Along with this party came a very unexpected gift of DIAMOND EARRINGS!!!! Yes I am very excited about these! Mostly because Matt did this all on his own. It was a perfect day!
Once again no pictures of this...I need to steal some from my mom!
Okay so her real Birthday day was maybe a little uneventful! We did however go to Coldstone for Ice Cream that night to celebrate my little angel turning one! She looks excited does she not? So this was Wednesday.... I have a lot of catching up to do and a lot of pictures to share!
So I am now playing catch up on some of the things we have been up too! I was going through some pictures and realize that I need to post some of these pictures because they are either too funny or just plain cute! So some of these are from before Halloween like Lucas' carved pumkin and some are just around the house and some are from tonight's crazy Fall Festival! So I hope you enjoy some of the pictures...by the way you might want to look back to a December post which looks a lot like me trying to get pictures of both of them in their costumes....they are both being very difficult! I guess I should explain what they were supposed to be dressed as. Lucas was a Super Hero and Georgia was Clown!
These are just a couple of pictures of the Homecoming Festivities! It was quite a morning at PCA! Lucas got to watch the parade with all of his friends and then we all headed down to the football field for the pep rally. They really did a great job getting the little ones involved. PreK through Kindergarten got to sit on the track to watch while the everyone one else was in the stands. Lucas loved every minute of it! Georgia was also there and she thought she was just as big as all the other kids! She is really getting better at walking. And Lucas loves to show her off...I just don't know if she appreciates it right now!
Matt turns 31 today which means he is officially IN his thirties! I am so proud of the man I married! He is such a FABULOUS husband and daddy! I hope you have a wonderful day Matt! We love you like crazy!!!
Today was another Beautiful day. The weather was cool so we decided to go to the playground and have a picnic and play. The kids had tons of fun. Of course Lucas would not allow his picture to be taken so I have tons of pics of Georgia Claire but not many of Lucas.... So here are some pics from our day at the playground! I sure hope all this nice weather means Fall is around the corner!!!
We have had quite a few little changes around the house where Georgia is concerned. Sunday we finally lowered her crib to the lowest level it will go. This is a good thing though because I came into her room to get her that morning and she was hanging over the side of the crib calling for someone to get her out! Then the big news is she has taken a couple of steps! She can stand by herself quite well but just Monday she added a couple of steps to that little trick! She is by no means a walker yet but she is making progress. She would still rather crawl most of the time. Once I figure out how to get video on here I will add some video of her couple of steps. So I just thought I would add a few pictures of her big girl self! She is quite proud of her accomplishments!
This is really a late post because tomorrow Georgia will be 10 months old! Wow how the times flies. You think it goes fast with the first one and it goes even faster with the second. So I thought better late than never to write a little about Georgia's ninth month of life! It is hard to believe that we have only had this little butter bean for nine months....I can hardly remember life without her. So right now she is cruising, babbling like crazy, she has 7 teeth, she is standing on her own for about 10 seconds or so, walks if she is holding on to your hands, and loves to head back to a bedroom and open drawers and pull every article of clothing out and then scamper off to the next room and do it again before you realize she has been a little too quiet! We love her like crazy! Lucas has named her "Zazu" for some odd reason...I am not sure where the name came from! He like to make up things right now. I am not sure how I feel about the name but she laughs like crazy lady every time he calls her by that name.
These pictures are from a day that we went to feed ducks at the pond. I thought they were cute. She is really starting to look like a baby girl! She has always looked so much like Lucas!
Matt and I celebrated our six year anniversary this past Sunday! I came home to two dozen roses Sunday! What a sweet husband! I feel so blessed to have married such an awesome man who loves the Lord and me and his family. God has blessed us in so many ways over the past six years it is amazing to sit down and look back on them all. Of course the two big ones would be the birth of Lucas and then Georgia! We have been surrounded with loving families and friends who are always there to support us.
Thank you Matt, for being such a great husband and Daddy! I can't imagine my life without you. I know God has even more incredible things in store for us as we continue our life together. I love you like crazy!
Sorry no pictures of the little ones on this post. Just thought I would share a little story. I am traveling for work the past two days and last night about 12:30 am I get a call from Stephanie. At first, I am thinking she fell asleep and just woke up and realized we hadn't talked and wanted to say "Good Night". I know how sweet. Well as I answer the phone to hear alarms, and hear beating on something, the neighbors door, she is calmly telling me that she evacuated the house because all the fire alarms are going off. O.K. you got my attention now, as I am 4 hours away and already getting dressed to see if I can set a new land/speed record on getting home!!! Stephanie being the ever so calm and collected self, wakes up the neighbors, calls 911 and gets Frisco's finest fire fighters out to the house. The fire firefighters according to eye witnesses were very polite and very courteous and completely checked the house from top to bottom for any signs of fire or distress. After finding nothing, they assured Stephanie that nothing was wrong, maybe a faulty wire or battery in an alarm. They did change out the batteries and told Stephanie that she did great in getting out the house and staying calm. Long story, short. Stephanie did great and we now recommend you change the batteries on your smoke alarms twice a year.
The first day of REAL school! I must say Lucas seemed so much older this morning! I know he is only 4 but the fact that he is going to a real school this year just makes me feel like he is growing up sooo fast! He relunctantly woke up this morning to put on his school uniform for the first time and he looked so cute! Even though it is just Navy shorts and a white polo it seemed more sophisticated than his normal attire of camo shorts from the GAP and a t-shirt! Then we got Georgia dressed and fed. And then it was time to leave after a short photo shoot...and I mean short as in about 5 pictures was about all he would allow me to take! We got to school and he found his table and his seat! We said our good byes and gave kisses and hugs and then Georgia and I were scooted off to the "BooHoo, Yahoo Breakfast"! I did not cry though! But I will admit once I got Georgia loaded up and we headed back to the house I was a little sad that my summer with both of the kiddos at home was over! Now I am not saying I did not enjoy my time alone with Georgia today, but it was a little bittersweet. So when I came back to pick him through the carpool, which is the greatest thing on earth!!!, he was so excited to tell me about his day and who he played with! They took a little tour of the school by way of hunting down a little mouse that had taken a bite out of a cookie! Lucas LOVED this! His teacher had planted cookies that had had a bite taken out of them around the school as clues and then when he got back to his classroom the kids all had cookies at their desk and a little mouse! Lucas was way impressed. So needless to say he wants to go back tomorrow but he does not have school again until Friday! He might be a little disappointed in the morning! Well here are a few pics of the sweet boy on his first day of PreK 4!
