Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my Mom's birthday and I just wanted say Happy Birthday Mom! We love you SO much and wish we could be there with you to celebrate today. We're driving down to Corpus Saturday morning-we'll have to do a little celebration that day too. We can't wait to see everyone this weekend! For some reason, Ella thought we were going yesterday and kept saying, "Are we going to Grandma's now?" over and over and would get really mad at us each time we said no. It was cute. Anyways, hope you have a wonderful birthday Mom. We'll see you soon!

Isn't my mom beautiful? If only I looked like her...

Cali's first playdate

Yesterday we visited our good friends, the Willson's, for a playdate. My friend Sarah was pregnant the same time as I was and her daughter, Naomi, was born just 9 days before Cali. They're already best friends:)Ahhhh...

Aubrey, Christopher & Ella-The girls love this little guy. They are so sweet with him. Ella calls him"her little prend Chripuhper." Yep, she needs work on her "f" sound, but it sounds cuter that way. The kiddos

Yea Aubrey!

Last night we celebrated Aubrey's "graduation" from preschool. I made her a big cookie and Joey brought home a cute little balloon for her. Yea Aubrey! I can't believe she'll be going to kindergarten in just a couple of months. It makes me feel old-like a grownup or something.

Aubrey's last day of preschool

Yesterday was Aubrey's last day of preschool. She was sad to say goodbye to good friends and wonderful teachers. It was a great year for her. She is so ready for kindergarten in the fall-I just don't know if I am!!! :( Below are pictures from the family picnic they had yesterday, including"train" rides and a big moon jump. Aubrey and Ella both had a great time.

Excited for the train ride

My Celebrity Look-Alikes?

This website is fun! My friend had it on her blog and I tried it out too. I even added those witty comments:) Upload a picture and try it yourself! Some of the results are pretty hilarious as you can see. I'm not sure whats funnier- the beautiful actresses or the Asian guy.

Kids say the darndest things

Yesterday, Joey and Ella were looking at a volume from our kids encyclopedia set. On one of the pages, there was a picture of a boy milking a cow. Ella looked at it curiously and after a few seconds said, "He's pulling his hiney off!" She wasn't trying to be funny, she was totally serious. We've tried explaining it to her, but she remains bewildered. We got a good laugh and hope you did too. Gotta love kids...

Happy Mother's Day

Today is the most important day of the year-Mother's Day! :) The girls woke up early with Joey and made me a delicious French Toast breakfast. They also made me cards and a picture frame. They were so cute! My gift from Joey-a clothing shopping spree. Now that I'm not pregnant, I need some new normal clothes! I can't wait to shop! Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there! Especially mine-I have the best mom in the world. I LOVE AND MISS YOU MOM!

Arlington visit

Yesterday we went to my aunt Cindy's house in Arlington. My grandparents were visiting and my sister, Tara(who also lives in Arlington), came over too. It was the first time my grandparents had seen Cali. We had a good time and enjoyed some yummy bbq! Its so nice to have my sister and aunt nearby, now if we can just get my parents up here...

Great Grandma Adams and Cali
After we ate at Cindy's, we went to my sister, Tara's, new apartment. She gave us a tour and also showed us Dexter, her new baby bird. A little background: my sister is known as the animal lover/rescuer in our family. This baby dove had fallen out of its nest and Tara has since adopted it as her own. It is a cute little guy that actually flies to her when she calls it. The girls were fascinated by it.

Ella pets "Dexi" as Aubrey cautiously looks on

Crazy bird lady

Tara is hilarious and is one of two people in the world that make me laugh the hardest. Sorry I posted this picture Tara, but how could I not? :)

Evening at the pool

Last week our community pool opened-yea! The girls were SO excited to go. We enjoyed ourselves this past Friday evening....summer is almost here! I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Good because we love swimming. Bad because of the dang heat and those scary electric bills. Well, the girls think its a good thing... Mommy and Cali just chilled out by the pool

High-tech Holly

In case no one has noticed, last week I went "high tech" and added music to my blog-thanks to the help of my friend, Melissa. I went to this site It makes it really easy to add music. You can also go back and change the song every so often too. So, turn up your volume! (if you want to hear it:)

Hooray for Home Depot Day!

The first Saturday of each month, The Home Depot holds a Kid's Workshop where children and their parents can come and build something really awesome! The girls have been going with Joey and absolutely love it! In the past they have built a firetruck, a picture frame, a butterfly house and even a race car. I think the girls favorite part is hammering, which concerns me-I'm a mom after all! Joey assures me he is supervising:) When they come home, they are always beaming and SO excited to show me what they made with their Daddy. For anyone else interested, EVERY Home Depot in the U.S. does this from 9am-12pm the first Saturday of every month. Go check it out with your kids if you haven't!

Yesterday's project-flower planters We did it!

A wise quote

Today I had the urge to take a picture of a t-shirt I have. My sister-in-law, Christine, gave it to me and I love it! Its true, idiots can ruin your day, IF you let them. :) Just thought I'd share the wisdom.
