the odd family

Here is the begining of a running list of the new, wonderful and sometimes very weird things I am learning about my children.....and all the strange things they say

1. Naomi hates onions... she will not eat them. She has become very good at finding them in many dishes I cook :)

2. Nutrigrain bars in our house have been renamed "bar-b". why? I do not know!... I cannot explain it. I do know that the girls LOVE them and would eat the whole box if I let them.

3. Lanie is not a meat eater. She will eat everything on her plate but 9 times out of 10 the meat is still there at the end of the meal.

4. Lanie loves mashed potatoes and stuffing! these have quickly become her favorite foods.

5. My children love to chat on the web cam! Exspecially to meredith

Halloween in coming!

Halloween is just about two and a half weeks away! The girls are so excited exspecially Naomi. This year I let her pick out her own Halloween costume and she choose to be a giraffe. Specifically she said " I want the giraffe, Lanie want the zebra" I am sure I will be the designated zoo keeper... a very fitting costume for me since that is my primary job in life already... LOL! I have hidden the costumes high up in my closet in an attempt to ward of the endless requests to wear their costumes to hold them over till the big day.... Halloween pj's of course :)

Rattle Snake Park

It has been FOREVER since I have posted any family pictures! The last few months have been so busy and the time has just gotten away from me. Ryan had the day off on Monday for Columbus day so we took a family outing to the park. The girls had a great time with their daddy. They were so excited to have him there to push them on the swings and help them down the big slide. It was wonderful to have the day together.

Me and my girls

Here are the photos of me and the girls at the park...I love getting to spend time with then. They are growing much to fast. I am so blessed to get to stay home and have this special time with them when they are young.

Just Heidi

We took Heidi to the park with us. She loves to go on family outings and for a ride in the car. She is growing just as fast as the other kidos in the house and can be just as goofy. And yes that is Ryan attempting to teach heidi to slide.

Just Lanie Bug

As seen by our most recent experiences with Lanie... she is our adventurous child. It seems she has no fear and knows no limits. At the park lanie loves to swing. She would swing for hours if we would let her. She can also be found climbing... and I can often be found running after her screaming "Lanie be careful!" She has a sweet spirit and has a natural talent for making us all laugh.

Just Naomi

Naomi loves the park! She asks us to take her often. She loves to slide and play in the sand. She is growing so fast and is a great big sister to lanie. Naomi is definitely becoming more grown up and independent. She has a great big personality and never meets a stranger. She is a sweet and loving child who is very free with love and affection

Disney Princess Wishes on Ice

This month I had the joy of taking Naomi to Disney on Ice. It was a wonderful show and so magical to watch my daughters eyes and she took it all in. We went with my friend denise and her daughter sarah. We all had a great time.

Jammy Time

So since it has been a while since I have posted new pictures... here our some new ones to enjoy of the girls in thier pjs...these were actually taken about three days after lanies ear surgery...though you would never know it!

Petting Zoo!

While at the Zoo we went to the childrens portion which of course has a petting zoo... I don't know who liked the goats more papa or the girls!

San Antonio zoo
