My Girls

The little one, 8 weeks old.

Not the best quality picture, but she is smiling!

Come on now, can you handle it?

I had to share this one. I asked what she was doing, she said, "I'm fixing the chair." hahahaha, awesome.

This week we are trying potty training, and preparing for Carys' 3rd birthday party this weekend. I have random lists all throughout the house, I hope I can remember everything that needs to be done!

Birthday Boy

Happy Birthday to my big brother David! Most people call him Dave now, but he is David to me.

He's hardworking, really smart, a good dad, can do like 4 pull ups at once, runs marathons, knows a lot about how the federal reserve works, he's resourceful, kind, loyal, has a really, really nice TV, introverted, borderline narcoleptic, dependable, has a good sense of humor, was the MVP of his high school football team playing defense, was in the Marines, loves his family, makes a wicked peach cobbler and is a damn good American. That's my brother.

Thanks for always looking out for me. Love you!

In honor of David's birthday...some Chuck Norris facts:

• Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad he has never cried.
• Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.
• Chuck Norris does not hunt because the word hunting infers the probability of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.
• If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris you may be only seconds away from death.
• Chuck Norris sold his soul to the devil for his rugged good looks and unparalleled martial arts ability. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, Chuck roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. The devil, who appreciates irony, couldn't stay mad and admitted he should have seen it coming. They now play poker every second Wednesday of the month.
• When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
• Chuck Norris built a time machine and went back in time to stop the JFK assassination. As Oswald shot, Chuck Norris met all three bullets with his beard, deflecting them. JFK's head exploded out of sheer amazement.
• Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life there.
• A blind man once stepped on Chuck Norris' shoe. Chuck replied, "Don't you know who I am? I'm Chuck Norris!" The mere mention of his name cured this man blindness. Sadly the first, last, and only thing this man ever saw, was a fatal roundhouse delivered by Chuck Norris.

And another one for him and any other Jim Rome followers, the mix....

Where it's at

We got a new car! (Well we are leasing it but for now I will call it mine).
And its a mini-van! A silver Honda Odyssey to be exact, and you know what, it's pretty dang cool I must say. It's so nice, roomy, shiny and new car smell-y.

Here is a picture of it, in all it's minivan glory.

I can't wait to cruise around in this baby.

In the house

Wow it's hard to find computer time with a newborn and a toddler! On most days still we stay home, though I am trying to get out of the house a bit more. When we're home Carys is always coming up with something, usually its princess time. The other day she was in the back and she said, "this is fairyland, and there is nothing to be afraid of and there are no monsters!" Sounds like a good time to me.

Here's Charlie girl chillin' in her crib. She's a good baby...most of the time. :) Chubby baby, she is wearing a 3 month old onesie here! This pic was taken today, she's 5 weeks and a couple days.

Carys and her Dad were digging up the dirt in the front yard and she was happy to find some worms to play with. Ick! Pretty much any chance to get dirty and make a mess, she will jump at.

"Who me? Regressing? Not at all, why would you say that?" (please note I didn't put her here, she climbed in on her own)

Princess feeding her baby

This day in the bath she kept saying, "its a wonderful day at the beach!" Hilarious and sad at the same time. Hopefully we can make it to the real beach one of these days!

Royal Love

I recorded the Royal Wedding and woke up at 6 am to watch it before my babies woke up. I am an absolute sucker for this stuff! Loved every minute of it. I love that they looked so happy, unlike Charles and Diana who looked like they were marching to the guillotine. A lip reader translated that when Kate and her dad got to the altar, William told her dad, "we were supposed to have just a small, family affair". Gotta love a prince with a sense of humor!

When they got into the carriage after the ceremony, Kate said, "I'm so happy". Awwww.

Here she was on her way to the reception that night, could her hair be any more fabulous?

There are tons of pics on the British Monarchy flickr page if you are a hopeless romantic/sucker like me.
