SSS--Night 3

Heading out for assembly...we were trying to get them to hold the rope, but they wanted to do a train instead.... This is Ethan...he has the sweetest personality and the cutest blond curly hair I've ever seen...
Reese going down the slide with static in her hair...
This is Tyler and his popsicle, I tried for 10 minutes to get a picture of him looking at me smiling. His parents are in our Sunday School class.
This is one of the prizes Rylee won at SSS.

SSS--Night 2

I didn't take any pictures the second night, but the kids got to play with water and sand outside, and then ate popsicles. Angela took this picture of Reese and Thatcher.

She's Not a Baby Anymore!!

My baby isn't a baby anymore. We took the side of her crib off and she is sleeping right now as a big girl. She hasn't gotten out of her bed, even when her sister went in to check on her...
And 30 minutes later....this is how I found her when I checked on her. She didn't cry, so we are pretty sure she put herself there.

Super Summer Spectacular 2008--Night 1

SSS (VBS) started tonight. I'm working in Reese's room. All the kids in her class have parents that are working at SSS. Rylee is getting to go with the entering Kindergarten kids, even though she won't be in school in August.

We were walking to the auditorium for the singing. (They are holding milk jug handles attached to a jump rope, pretty neat idea.) Here we are listening to the singing. Amanda, who teaches with Angela, Angela, and me with 7 kids around the age of 2.
Starting to warm up, we have some hands clapping...
We are going strong now, jumping and pumping our hands in the air, or in Reese's case, waving.
Considering all of these kids go to bed around 8pm and SSS wasn't over until 9pm, they are did pretty well!!

Kids Say the Darnest Things!!

Last night we were eating at Chili's. When I asked Rylee what she wanted to eat, this is the conversation that followed.

DA: What do you want for dinner?

Rylee: I can't read, can you tell me what they say?

DA: hamburger, corn dog, macaroni and cheese, ...

Rylee: macaroni and cheese, but it makes me sick

(background: Rylee has only thrown up about 5 times in her short life and she ate mac and cheese for 2 of those times, hence mac and cheese makes her sick)

DA: I don't think it is going to make you sick.

Rylee: Well, I won't eat too much of it. That way it won't make me sick.

DA: That sounds good, what side do you want?

Rylee: Mom, I don't like cheese, because it has sugar in it. And a lot of sugar makes me sick. So, I'll only eat a little of my macaroni and cheese so I don't get sick.

DA: Well, that sounds very smart. (She is only 4, it sounded smart in her 4 yr old logic.) What side do you want, you get one? (I then start reading the side choices)

Rylee: mashed potatoes, I like mashed potatoes....

Update: She ate the entire bowl of macaroni and cheese and didn't get sick

The Girls got a Haircut

Rylee got her hair cut. We were waiting for the dance recital to be over before we chopped it off.

She looks really grown up. She said she thought she looked like a different person.

Reese got her first haircut with a professional. She did really well until it was time to take her picture for a First Haircut package that we were getting.

she kept hiding her face...we finally moved her to the yellow taxi.

Gifts from Hawaii

Uncle Ben and Aunt Kristen went to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago and brought the girls grass skirts and coconut tops.

THANKS Kristen and Ben!!

Father's Day

An Afternoon With Mickey and Friends

Rylee did well for a full auditorium and lights and scenery behind her. Her ballet dance was Minnie and Me, they danced with a Minnie Mouse doll.

This would be Belle and Beast, who she looked at during one of the dances.

Reese was told to come take pictures with Rylee...
...not real thrilled to have to move away from the back of the fringe.
Jennifer took video, hopefully we can load them on here so you can see them.

This has Brad's name all over it.......

Brad was mowing the grass and I was sweeping the drive and the girls were playing in Duke's cage. Brad is the one who told them to both get inside at the same time.

Charger Soccer Camp 2008

Rylee went to the soccer camp put on by the soccer program at Central. She did really well and actually enjoyed it. The 4s were called the Baby Bolts (Central's mascot is the Chargers with a lightning bolt as the symbol)
They are all "parking the car." The woman with the ball cap is the head girls coach and she taught next door to me for two years.

Melissa Forgey, head coach, and Rylee

The kids played the coaches one day. Rylee is in a white top and baby blue shorts...
On the last day, all the kids took a picture together.
The Baby Bolts are on the front row...
She is in the blue jersey...

Getting her award...

A.P. Williams Family Reunion 2008

This is Mom's family...It was held in New Braunfels, at Landa Park. It was an interesting park with a lot of stuff to do, but it was HOT!! Here are the kids in the tree. Jennifer, Jason, and Jenna didn't get to come because of Jenna's dance recital, but we brought Jackson with us. (Let's just say traveling with 3 kids was very different than 2.)
All the kids trying to climb the trees...

Playing with some cousin...
Here is our branch of the family tree.
Reese and Jackson get along so well. They hugged each other the entire time...after going potty--hug, after playing with different toys--hug. It was cute!

Granddaddy trying to keep the kids from the river..
Tammy, Hayden, Reese, and Rylee climbing the tree after the big kids left.
There was a train that looped around the park...the tracks went right past our pavilion.
