You know what this blog needs lately? Some adorable pictures of my munchkins!:)
Comin’ right up!
New haircut, courtesy of “Salon Mommy”!
A new Big Boy haircut was needed to go along with a new Big Boy skill, of course, going potty! We are now more than two weeks, dozens of stickers, and a whole bag of Mini M&M’s in, and Gabe is a pro (at least at going #1:). I’m so proud! And I love not having two in diapers, at least for a few weeks.
We went to our local strawberry farm a couple of weekends ago for a friend’s birthday party, and the kids (and their parents) LOVED picking all of the juicy red strawberries. We picked about five pounds of strawberries, feasted for a week on them, and had none left over to freeze…oh well. 🙂
Does this picture give away how much of a character this little girl is? She’s completely hilarious and makes us laugh many times a day, every single day.
I let Gabe ride Mossy Oak Mudslinger the bronco in front of HEB one day when we had a date at the grocery store. He was pretty proud of himself. 🙂
That’s my girl!
Michael surprised me and built a picnic table while I was on my silent retreat a few weeks ago. I’ve been wanting a table and chairs for the backyard for a long time.:)
We had an impromptu crawfish boil last Saturday–the first of the season! Gabriel and Faith call crawfish “bugs,” and they call the lobsters in the tank at the grocery store “big bugs.” We are hosting a big crawfish boil at the house for Michael’s networking group in a few weeks, and Michael wanted to perfect his technique and seasonings for this year before the big day.
Faith with “Baby Stella,” one of her favorite Christmas presents. She and Gabriel are both talking about Mommy’s Baby a good bit now. They both thoroughly enjoy barging into the bathroom every time I am in there (which is frequently, since I’m 7 months pregnant right now:) and rubbing my tummy to say “hi” to the baby.
My precious boy was SO BRAVE at his first dentist appointment last week. I was so First-Time-Momma-Taking-Baby-to-the-Dentist proud of him!!!
So proud of him that after his appointment I marched him to the Nestle Toll House Cafe next door and let him pick out whatever he wanted. Especially after he told me he had to go pee-pee and we went to the bathroom there! Turns out he’s a fan of M&M cookies. That’s my boy.:)
