8 Months!

 This little beauty and her sisters had a great time playing at the park this weekend!  It's hard to believe that Katie is 8 months old already!  She's a crawling maniac!
 Miss Katie loved crawling around on the rocks
 She loved watching the other kids play on the swings and slide on the slide
 It was also a great opportunity to get some pictures of Katie for her photo album.  I'm feeling a little bit of a bad mom, the other two girls had their pictures professionally taken EVERY month until they were a year old.  The last time Katie had her pictures professionally taken was when she was 5 months old.  Although I've been happy with the pictures I've taken of her I feel like maybe I should be taking her in every month like the other girls.  Hopefully she doesn't hold it against me when she's older!
 This is my favorite for this set!  I love that she is standing and looking over her shoulder at Mommy.

what can I say about her?
She is a thoughtful almost three year old,

she love to look at the sky to see if she can see Daddy 'frying'

loves to play outside, but really hates bugs!
loves to be a little, ok A LOT silly,

and she keeps us on our toes! 
She comes up with some of the funniest phrases, we never know what's going to come out of her mouth next.  She has a VERY large vocabulary, well beyond her years! 
She loves cuddle, kisses and hugs!
And you know what?  We love to give her those too!

keeping the hair out of you eyes is important when your a pirate

And then you find your target you've been looking for!

She loves to play pirate with Kylie.  They both have such an amazing imagination, its so fun to listen to.

Kylie dance in the parade!  It was so fun to watch, she had a great time.

Of course there was the high school marching band.   They were great!

The haunted house hearse...

What would a parade be without every tractor known to man...well maybe not EVERY tractor but a bunch of them

Katie enjoyed the parade too!

I think this car could use some help!

Now that her performance is over, Kylie gets to enjoy the parade too!

Cowboy church?  Why not?

It was a great parade.  Kid got lots of candy for me them to eat too!

Flash Mob!

Kylie danced in her first 'Flash Mob' dance today.  She had a ball!  The high school cheer leaders held a 3 day cheer clinic to teach all of the girls Kindergarten thru Eigth Grade (that wanted to participate) a dance to perform in the parade that was held on Saturday.  Everyday she came home and had to show me more of the dance she learned.  She is already waiting for the next cheer clinic so she can learn a new dance.

The danced to 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough'.  I'm always amazed at what these little ones can learn in such a short amount of time...6 hours to be exact...over a  3 day time span.

7 Months

I've been having so much fun taking pictures lately!  But with taking them comes editing them.  I really enjoy editing them, but I have a terrible time deciding which edit I like the best!
I really like black and white pictures, however the color ones also look great!

Katie is like both of the other girls, loves to have her picture taken and will sit and smile for quite a while.  Although I think that will be ending soon since now she has become a 'master' crawler!

This one is definately one of my favorites.

What about you, which one is your favorite?

Mission Accomplished!

Kylie and I had a fun day taking pictures.  She loved it, I kept telling her the whole time that I was sure that she had modeled for pictures before.  She thought that was so funny, and kept telling me over and over that this was the first time.  She loved the fact that it was also Mommy and me time...her favorite thing.  Doesn't matter what we are doing, ifs its just the two of us she is happy.

I was hoping to get some good pictures of her, hoping that I could NOT have to take her in to a photographer to have them taken.  I was pleasantly surprised when I got home and started looking at them, I feel like its MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

I love how they turned out.  What about you?  Which is your favorite?

Labor Day!

Today we went to a parade in a neighboring town.
The kids got entirely too much candy

During the parade Katie was able to fall asleep.

After the parade there was a petting zoo for all to visit.

The girls loved it!  Kylie held baby rabbits, Lacey pet them.

They were both amazed at how soft they were.  Mommy had temporary insanity for a moment and actually considered a bunny for a pet...thank God it was only temporary!

They also got to feed the animals.  I though Lacey would be too scared to feed them...I was wrong.

Kylie got her face painted...just a small painting because the truth of the matter is she hates face paint.  Loves the look of it, hates the feel of it!

There was also a band playing, lots of kids playing on the playground, and several vendors.  It was a great time!
