today my oldest baby turned 5. a sad, but wonderful day. sad because i know before long she won't need me anymore, but wonderful because she is becoming such an amazing little girl. year 4 was a very trying year for us with finley. she has really been going through growing pains and we have really been going through them with her. aside from all of that she still makes me smile on a daily basis. what can i say about my kid. she is outgoing, polite, sweet, she loves God, caring, smart, curious, loving, and funny.
finley has brought so much to our family and has made us all better. i believe God gave her to me to help me grow and make me a better person. i believe that is what all of the challenges are for and i am so thankful. fin requires a lot of me, which in turn requires a lot of patience on my part so i am slowly learning. she definitely keeps me on my toes.
things that fin is loving these days....spending time w/ her momma, reading, shoes, hummus, dancing, making up songs, rollercoasters, her little sister, waffles, nick jr., playing dress up, writing, taking pictures, and most things girly.
i thank God for this girl every single day. she is my little buddy that i just couldn't see myself going through this life without her. i am madly in love w/ her.

my sweet girl turns 3 today and i can't believe its been 3 years. i prayed for a boy, but of course God knew what to do. she is exactly what our family needed and i don't know where we would be without her. she makes life.....better. everything is better because of her. she's so happy and healthy and loving. we could not ask for more. she's also smart, mischievious, laid back, she loves to antagonize her sister, she's funny and loves to laugh, she's nosy, she has a good heart, she makes me smile at least 10 times a day, and i think she is just beautiful. i never get tired of that face.

here's what lan is lovin right now:
strawberries, cheeseburgers w/ ketchup only, real flip flops, baby dolls, peaches, her daddy, mimicking mommy, tumbling, her dog brutus, kisses, her big sister, climbing anything, ignoring mommy and daddy, the color pink, her ducky pillow.

Museum with Daddy

kobby was off on labor day so we decided to take the girls to the museum, one of their favorite places. they were so excited to take himn by the hand and show him all of their favorite spots in the museum. after that it was lunch at the great outdoors (yum!!!) and then off to granny and papa's for swimming. great day!

My Little Fishies

this week brought an end to the angst that was swim class. finley had a bad start and never really got her groove, so their were lots of tears. i know she can do it, but she has this terrible fear that she cannot overcome. pray for my girl please!

now let's talk landry. we might as well call her michaela phelps. she did amazing and by the end of the class she didn't want mamma touching her while swimming. she just wanted to be on her own and show everyone how its done. i'm a proud mama!

Backyard Fun

A Fun New Discovery

the week we left for mexico i discovered this great indoor park to take the kids. the indoor safari park in southlake will be a lifesaver for us this summer.

i pay $10 and my kids can play on anything they have all day long and everything is kid friendly and safe so all i have to do is sit there with a good book and relax....except for the occasional "mom, look at me!"

some time soon i will be awakened at 7:30 with "mommy, what are we doing today?" and we will head right on over to the safari park. LOVE IT!

Fun Times in Mexico!

kobby and i reecently returned from our much anticipated and needed trip to cancun for my brother's wedding.

after these past couple of months with kobby's surgery, food poisoning, and the kids driving us nuts we were so happy to just get away and be together. to do nothing. and eat LOTS of food.

the wedding was an amazing tribute to God and it was great to meet my brother's wife for the first time. the resort was also beautiful and i'm so glad we got to stay there. overall, the trip was really good and we are left feeling rejuvenated.

May has come!

this first weekend in may was a fab one for us! on saturday we went to fin's t-ball game, where she was looking oh so cute. and then on sunday fin danced and tumbled at mayfest, and again she was looking oh so cute and she did a great job! so, i guess the weekend was all about fin. it was a great weekend, but really long and tiring. i think we are using today to get our rest.

Yummy Moments.....

this morning was one of those that brought about some precious moments with my girls. early this morning when finley was lying in bed awake (her daddy had sent her back to bed b/c she got up too early) i was able to go in and just cuddle with sweet. i haven't been able to do that since she's had her big girl bed. my second moment this morning was with my second baby girl. as she's getting out of the car for school she stops to tell me to have a good day, that she loves me, and to give me a kiss. these are the moments that make me forget about the rest of the time when i can't stand them. i think God knows when i need those moments to get me back on track and rejuvenated. sometimes ijust want to get a spoon and eat them up....sigh. thank you God for those 2 amazing creatures that are constantly teaching me.

This blogging thing

so i'm just starting out with this blogging thing...we'll see how it goes. things are going really well with us. the girls are doing great in school and we are keeping very busy. finley will start t-ball next month and once again kobby will be the coach. i really don't think fin is going to be into sports, but we are going to try everything out just to make sure. she is definitely our girly girl and she so loves her dancing and tumbling. pretty soon landry will be following in her footsteps. goodness that girl seems to get older and more mature by the day.
