This is Annabeth eating her first sprinkled cake donut.
This is Jackson with a milk mustache.
Here's another one of his marvelous 5-year-old facial expressions. Pretty impressive sentences so far, huh?
This just makes me laugh.
The Sir begged me to take a picture of him and then he did this. It takes intensive coaching to get him to smile normally.
My dear Fitzes. I will get in trouble for posting this but I don't care because I'm just so HAPPY to have them around!
These are two of my dear friends, Angela and Alicia. They were our college students when we worked at First Irving. We got to spend last weekend with them and it was so great.
Later that night I found three people on their iPhones/Droids/Blackberries in my living room.
Here's Annabeth enjoying some books. Notice how large her hair is. My mom had fixed it last.
Today was picture day for Annabeth at MDO. *High five for remembering.* Notice that Annabeth is using one of Jackson's hand-me-down Cars sippy cups. I always wonder if her teachers feel sorry for her when I send the boyish cups to school.
I got a phone call at 1:43 from the school saying, "This is not an emergency, but Jackson bit through his lip." He had a little accident on the playground. Bless his heart. He was pretty unsettled because of the drama of losing his front tooth a couple of months ago, so I picked him up early. Thank God there doesn't seem to be any damage to his teeth. We got a vanilla shake and I let him do pretty much anything he wanted after that. Movies, Wii, Jello and snuggling on the couch were in order. By the way, it looks much worse in person.
This is the cute red bench my hubby bought me on our last date night. It was even his idea. I had joked with him about forgetting to get me the one thing I wanted for Valentine's Day, which was a Snuggie. (Walgreen's was sold out, y'all.) That guilt trip obviously served me well. Thank you, Homegoods, for this wonderful purchase and for the $30 discount for a missing screw.
The tree in our front yard is just now losing it's leaves. It's so weird. There are new leaves budding next to old ones that are getting ready to fall off. (So apparently this is called a Live Oak and it is named that because the leaves never go dormant. Hooray for Wikipedia and knowledge!)
This is an outfit my mom bought Annabeth. I probably would not have picked this out, but I'm so glad my mom did because I nearly fell over from how cute she was in it. And she was thrilled to wear her pink bow. By the way, the first thing she said to me this morning was that she needed a bow in her hair. I believe I have succeeded thus far as a mother.
