Cookie Solicitors, pretending not to be sick and stuff

While I looove my new iPad, I hate that I can't do blogs from it.  I have tried every which way, the last 2 blogs were done from the iPad and the pictures were difficult to use and the whole process is just a big pain.  It's my only complaint because the iPad rox.  Anyway, that's why I have been slow to update things.  PLUS, I accidentally deleted a January blog ( I can't remember what it was about..???).... The software to do the blogs are just no bueno.    

On to the team, besides a whole lot of basketball, the girls got to sell their girl scout cookies.  We are waiting for their arrival...  They were cute and shy.  I'm looking forward to the new flavor Savannah Smiles!
 Here is Lulubee on her stilts wearing my yoga pants... We need to make her some stripped clown pants asap.

 Downloaded this from pinterest.  We can't stop laughing at it.....

I FINALLY got our picture wall updated!  It only took 9 months of procrastination and 1 hour of work.  

So, I don't know what you are supposed to look like or HOW you are supposed to act if you have a Double Ear Infection, RSV and Broncialitis.  But, I *know* it should NOT look like THIS!

 He had heavy heavy drainage and cough... But clear as glass and no fever AND he kept smiling, laughing and playing!  But, I reluctantly took him in thinking better be safe than sorry.  Ugh, poor baby!!! :-(  

I even sent this picture below to Stan from the doctors office telling him, "why am I here?!"

 Incidentally, if you noticed the LARGE bruise and bump on his forehead, that's from him voluntarily smashing his head into the chair as he was sitting at my feet.  Whit's sense of caution is very under developed... very.  Here he is in the bathtub.  So much for the safety pillow... He wants to play!
Ainsley Grace and Anderson were so sad when I told him how sick he was... They loved and loved on him in the car after school... 
Our sweet pooky bear is sleeping hard today... I hope healing.

Cupcakes and New Year

I took the kids to get a cupcake at our local bakery.  If you told them happy 8th birthday, you got a free one.  They were sooo yummy.  This weather is so great here in Dallas right have been playing a lot outside....

It's a new year!  Stan had left over fireworks from the 4th of July.  So we hurried home before midnight to be with the kids when the clock struck 12 and we set off fireworks to bring in the new year.  The kids were actually awake!  It was fun - the Reilly family came and joined us - we had champagne and sparkling juice. Lots of fun, my head is hurting today to prove it...  

This year is going to be an exciting year.  Whit turns 1, Ainsley Grace's first communion and HELLO, Stan will graduate from Law School, take the bar and start a new job.   It's hard to beleive what we have in store for 2012.... Let's do this.

Happy New Year!  God bless us in 2012.

Christmas Action

We did a quick Christmas Light tour this year, but it always fun to go to the house near Lindsley Park, her house is so fun. Got some cute family pics.

Mom took pictures of us reading, Twas the night before Christmas to the sw eet babies. Best story ever written. Such a special time for the kids right now.

Lots of Christmas action, Santa came and didn't dissappoint! Plus, all the toys this year had lots of fun potential, Bumper Balls, Pogo Jumper, Stilts and more!

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is cards of my friends and their beautiful babies. We look at them for months.
