We have swimmers!!

The girls took 2 weeks of swim lessons at the beginning of summer.
We had no idea they would actually be swimming after wards.

Poolside Lunch

"Mom can eat our lunch by the pool?"

Friday, July 23, 2010


I have been asking the girls if they want to get their ears pierced for the past year.
I wanted to take them when they were old enough to remember
and it would be a special time for the girls and I.
I remember getting my ears pierced when I little.
I was so excited.
The girls have been making comments about my earrings lately
and I ask if they want theirs pierced too and they say not yet.
Well one day last week we were sitting with their friends
and they said they were finally ready.
Whoo Hoo!!
Off we went, right then.
I didn't want them to change their mind.

We asked the girls friends to come along with us for support
(and distraction).
Addison was SO excited, Charlotte was a wee bit nervous.
We had Charlotte go first in case Addee cried
and Charlee would chicken out.

Looking a little scared.
Ready set pierce.
Armed with blankie for support.
Charlotte's flowers.
Addee was all smiles as she waited.
She said "it didn't even hurt mom"
Am I done?
She was so proud of her purple hearts.
The support crew.

My Silly Moment of Sadness

Last week I came across an old box of sidewalk chalk.

It was hidden on top of the fridge behind the bread basket.

I was excited to pull it out as I knew the girls would have a blast.

When I opened it up I noticed tiny little teeth marks on
each of the chalks.

I then remembered that was why I hid the chalk on top of the fridge.

And I got a tear in my eye.

A tear.

Over Chalk.

My girls have grown up so much lately.

Addison rides a bike with no training wheels.

Both girls are swimming all over the pool without floaties.

And they choose to hang with their friends over me some days.

I snapped outta of my teary eyes quickly

when both girls ran in and grabbed the chalk from my hands.

Hours of fun were had.

Guess how surprised I was when I found a new set of teeth marks in the chalk?

Somethings never change.

Funny Ph(F)rases Friday

More funny things from my peanuts...

Girls playing in the bath tub
Charlotte: Here's your Marita (margarita) sister.
Addison: And here's your sushi.

Proud Mommy moment.

In the bathroom at the mall
Addison: Look Mommy that lady is wearing socks with her flip flops.
That is so not cool huh?
Me: (trying REALLY hard not to laugh)
Umm, Everyone is different. Maybe her feet are cold.
(while wanting to scream YES!! You are so right.
And feeling so proud that my girl is on the right stylish track)

And just as a side note I did take her aside
after we left and told her that wearing socks with flip flops
is NEVER ok but we shouldn't make comments about it.
Even if your feet are cold, there is never an excuse.

Addison: Can I help you make dinner?
Mommy: Sure, you can put the croutons on the salad.
Addison: Ahhhh, This is the best day I ever had.

This mommy is stocking up on croutons Haha!!

What do you do when your hubby gets laid off work?
Well you go on vacation of course

One of the quicker of the vacations was
just the hubs and I in Las Vegas!!

It was so relaxing.
I laid by the pool and people watched.
(one of my favorite past times)
I shopped in Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace for hours.
It was heaven.

Enjoying the sunshine.
That way to the shops...
Ready for some dinner.Then maybe a drink and some dancing.Our room had a fantastic view of the strip.
I could have stayed here for a week.
Caesar's Palace was awesome.
Thanks Hubbster for a quick fun trip.
