Family fun!!

Payton's 1st haircut!!

Payton had her first haircut today!! I have been putting it off for a little while because I was afraid to do it. I wanted her to stay young and not be such a big girl!!! Well today was the day. She was very nervous about sitting in the seat by herself so I sat with her. After I got in the chair she was all good!! We gave her a sucker and she sat there like a big girl!! Esther cut 2 inches off and I think it looks so much better!! It's not so stringy on the ends and it just looks so darn cute!!

You were such a big girl Payton!!

How we spent three days!!

This past week has been crazy with storms, flooding and tornados. One night was really bad, so I pretty much kept Payton in the closet and Macey Jo attached to my hip. Payton hated being in the closet awake so thankfully the worst part happened at night when she was asleep. There were a few times where we had to get in the closet then get out, then we had to get back in and well you get the drift!!! Thankfully we are all okay, but we want to wish the best for those not so fortunate.

This is how we spent are days awake!!

Look at that little smile!!

My two girls!

Macey Jo in the bumbo for the first time!!

This is basically how we spent those three days while asleep

Happy Easter 2011


Opening up their Easter baskets from the Easter bunny.
Payton got an extra Easter basket from her Gi Gi and Pop Pop. !!
Macey Jo was not very happy about having to sit in her Easter basket!!

Movie day!!

My mom and I decided to take Payton and Macey Jo to the movies to see Hop. It's Payton's 2nd time to go to the movies (her 1st was on July 4th when she was 6 months old). It was Macey Jo's 1st movie!! Payton was a little scared at first because it was so loud and big. I kept reminding her that it was just a T.V.!! She did awesome and stood/sat for almost two hours and then she was done. We left with about 20-30 minutes left. I was so proud that she lasted that long!!

I think she was pretty amazed at the huge T.V. screen!

Easter Festivities!!

Best Buddies!!!
There is nothing like a father and his daughter!!!

The Saturday before Easter we went to FACS to their Easter Festival. Payton did the 2-3 year old Easter Egg hunt and grabbed lots of eggs. They had a band playing there and that is all she wanted to listen to. She would stand there and watch the play and sing. They had lots of jump arounds but of course I have a child that is scared of everything!! So we mostly watched the band and chased Payton.

Payton had such a fun time hunting for Easter eggs. And Macey Jo had an even better time watching her big sister!!

Park time!!

A new park opened up here and it was awesome!! There are like 4 different little playgrounds at this 1 park. Lots of swings, slides, monkey ropes, sand, and water!! We were all amazed at the size of the park we really didn't know where to begin! So we left that up to Payton to decide and of course we went right to the swings and stayed there forever! She loves to swing. She doesn't want to do anything else! We had to make her go play every where else and of course she loved them too. We had so much fun at the new park and can't wait to go play again!!

Looking down into the Slide pit!
Where's Payton?!

Sliding down one of the slides with my big girl!

She loved all the swings! I think she could have stayed on the swings all day long!

What goes up..... Must come down!!!

We had an awesome day together! Macey Jo did good in her stroller while doodle bug played her heart out!!

First Easter Egg hunt of the season!

We went with my sister Blair, BIL Bobby, and niece Aylin to an Easter Egg hunt in Mississippi. We had such a good time. Payton did arts and crafts and played her little heart out. She was so hot and bright red, but she kept on playing until time to go. The Easter bunny showed up and surprise surprise Payton was scared to death! Oh well maybe one year she will like him!

Richard helped Payton do the sack race!! She really thought that was too funny!

My big girl and I watching the Easter bunny roll up in style on his 4 wheeler!!

This is what Macey Jo did on her first Easter Egg hunt!

Doodle bug hunting eggs! She did so good finding those eggs! Every time she found an egg she would throw it in her basket so proudly!!

They'll laugh together
They'll cry together

They'll talk boys together
They'll talk about their lives together

They'll help each other through problems
All in all I hope they will be Best friends forever

Payton's birthday present!

For Payton's birthday Richard and I really wanted to get her a playground set. Well if you haven't looked lately the good ones are way expensive. So I thought it would be a great idea to get Payton gift cards instead of presents for her birthday. Well graciously everyone gave a $10-$20 gift card and it covered a little more than half of her new playground set.
This past weekend Richard and my dad spent all day putting it together. I think it took about 2 days to get the finished product. But when it was finished Payton LOVED it. She didn't want o come inside that night. Every day she runs outside and just wants to swing for hours on end!

That sure is a lot of wood on the ground plus there is still another full box he hasn't opened yet!
Payton playing while the playground is being assembled!
Yay!! The almost finished product!!!

We just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who helped Payton get this awesome swing set!! She absolutely loves it!

Macey Jo is 1 month!

So a whole month has gone by since Macey Jo entered the world! It seems like she has been our family forever! We just can't imagine life without her now! So for the past month you Macey Jo:
- eat 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours. (I don't know why my kids won't go every 3-4 hours to eat)
-you are still wearing newborn diapers
-you were newborn clothes or 0-3 month clothes
- you sleep 4-5 hours between feedings at night
-you love locking eyes with whoever is holding you
-you still projectile vomit, but its getting less frequent (there are some feedings where we both don't have to change clothes!!)
-you really don't like a paci. so we don't force the issue!!

We love you Macey Jo!!
Happy 1 month!
