B & B Dress Up

Yesterday we went to Brooklyn's Best Friend Bella Rose's 3rd Birthday Party! It was a Hello Kitty theme with cookie decorating. It was super cute and Jodi did a great job putting it all together!

After cookie decorating Bella opened up her birthday presents! Bella got some ADORABLE dress up clothes that her and Brooklyn had to try on, see below!

Happy Birthday Bella! We Love You!

Back to School & Big Girl Bed

Last Monday, Devon started 7th grade! I was a little nervous he would have trouble waking up since he had been staying up so late all summer but I was wrong. He had no issues getting up and was ready for the first week back to school. He is taking all AP classes and 1 GT class - I'm so proud of him!

I asked him to cut the afro but he was not having it! I'll keep trying, lol!

Last Monday, we also converted Brooklyn's crib to a toddler bed! She was really excited until she realized she was supposed to sleep in it by herself. LOL.

Sunday Funday at Colony Cellars

Yesterday, the girls and I went to Colony Cellars (a winery in Waller) for Kelly's birthday! We had no idea what to expect but had a blast! You can't tell from this picture but we are a wild bunch (aka a Covey of Quail) when we all get together! Don't think the wine guide and staff were ready for us! LOL - love you ladies and looking forward to our next outing!

Galveston Schlitterbahn

Last Wednesday a large group of family and friends woke up early and journeyed out to Galveston Schlitterbahn! We arrived at the park a little before it opened and found a good place to drop off our belongings before heading out to the lazy river and water slides. Everyone had a ball - I only wish I had a water proof camera to capture our fun filled day! Enjoy the few shots I did manage to get!

She loved it!

Devon aka Slim Pickens and L Rae ;)

Poor B girl was so tired she fell asleep on the picnic bench, lol.

Good Times with Gigi

Gettin ready to go to the mall with Gigi this past Saturday

B couldn't wait to ride the Merry Go Round

And she loved waving to people on the train! Gigi had to tell her it broke to get her off, lol! ;)

Both kids got new shoes...Devon got some really cool, nylon Nike's and B got her first pair of Twinkle Toes! She insists on stomping in them to make sure they light up! Thanks again Gigi!

Brooklyn James

This post is a month over due...

As most of you know B turned 2 on June 11th. She had a great birthday with friends and family. She also went to the doctors for a check up and shots.

Height: 34 1/4 in - 50-75%
Weight: 27 lbs and 1 oz - 50 -75%
Head: 49.5 cm - 90%

Brooklyn is amazing!

She has become quite the little chatter box lately - she talks ALL the time and she loves to sing her ABCs, Ring a Round the Rosies and Wheels on the Bus.

Daddy and Emmy got her off her BahBah (pacifier) a few days after turning 2 which is pretty impressive because she LOVED that thing!

We are slowly working on potty training - some days she is totally interested and others not so much. She has gone #2 three times on the potty so far!

She has enjoyed being in the pool on these hot summer days! We got her some arm floaties that she feels completely confident in. She will go ALL over the pool whether you are around or not.

XoXo - K, D & B

The Kid's Sunday Funday!

Yesterday was a fun day for the kiddos! First we started out at Noah's 2nd Birthday Party! Noah LOVES baseball so his party was at a park with a baseball field next door. How perfect for him! They also had a lady who did face painting and balloon animals!

Brooklyn holding her ginormous princess wand and getting her arm painted.
Can you guess what she got???

A Bumble Bee with Glitter!

Devon w/ Cookie Monster on his cheek!

Showing off his balloon Palm Tree!

Can't forget the Baseball Birthday Boy! He was too busy to look at the camera :)

Afterwards we headed to Kelly's to go swimming but shortly after we arrived it started raining! Kel & I were a little bummed but the kids weren't phased at all. They had a ball running around the house and playing in the rain!

Check out B's Ballerina Bathing Suit! Courtesy of the Wallers!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all the moms, stepmoms, grandmothers and god mothers in our lives had a great mother's day yesterday!

We started my mother's day at the zoo with my sister Kelly. I hadn't been in years and thought it would be a fun, family treat for the kids. Well, I quickly remembered why we don't go very often. The Houston Zoo, in my personal opinion, is a disappointment. Most of the exhibits you can barely see the animal because they are hiding or if you are lucky enough to get a glimpse of them, it is their rear end. That does not make for an excited almost 2 year old! She did like seeing the giraffes, elephants and monkeys. Thankfully they were up close and personal. Devon's favorite animal and sighting was the tiger even though he was ALL the way in the back. Figures!

After the zoo, we headed home for nap time, B slept 3 hours! We relaxed the rest of the afternoon before meeting Gigi, Dodo & Kelly at Los Cucos for dinner. The service was slow but the dinner was yummy!
