My Two Favorite Pics of the Girls and Our Favorite Guy in Iraq....We Miss Him!

Finally.... a new post....Fun trip to Phoenix

It has been forever since I've posted a blog..... I am hoping with my new Mac that blogging and uploading pictures will be a lot easier. So we'll see.... We recently went to Phoenix for Nate's graduation from Fuller seminary and had a mini vacation as well. It was super fun. We are really proud of Nate...the first in our family to get a Mater's degree.... the only problem is...he thinks he's smarter than everybody else... :)

My girls discovered splash parks.  At first they were pretty timid and didn't want to go in, but  Emma, my brave child, started running toward the water... Gracie soon followed.  They loved the splash parks so much, its so much fun to see the girls playing together so well.

Heather's parents came to see Nate graduate too and stayed at a Wyndem resort in Phoenix.  They were super nice to let us use the beautiful pool.  We had a great time swimming and laying out while the boys were golfing.....the babies loved it too!

Gracie and Emma found this dolphin on the bathroom floor (kind of gross ) while we were changing....they probably had just as much fun playing on it then the pool.

Tantie and Gracie at the resort....look how pretty the palm trees and mountins are....sooo fun!

The whole gang at the Diamondback baseball game.  The girls did great for a long baseball game....however, it was air conditioned, we sat in the all you can eat section, and they had a great kiddie play area.  I'm not yet ready to take Emma to a 100 degree Redhawks game.

Emma and Gracie love their Uncle Nate!

I am so proud of Gracie.  She has been TERRIFIED of all dogs,  but this week she and Nellie became friends.  She was even letting Nellie kiss her hand and Gracie was able to pet her!  Big Breakthrough!

Weight Loss Update!

Weight Loss Update!
I finally hit the 50 pound mark!
I started at 184....three weeks after I had Emma.....and I'm down to 134! In almost 15 months......
Here is a pic, about a year ago in California...I don't know why the pic says 2004. :)
Before Pic!

After Pic! 50 pounds gone!

Also, if you look closely, Gracie had fallen off the slide while we were taking this picture... Poor Baby, bumped her head!

Sesame Street, Cookies, Backyard Fun

Two Tinkerbells playing with their Daddy Doll! They think its hilarious. Gracie's favorite thing is to throw Daddy down the stairs, and yell "Sorry, Daddy, Are you okay?" and then just laugh! :)

Gracie loves dressing up, and is already talking about our trip to Disney World when Steven gets back!

Playing in the backyard, Emma is pretty much OBSESSED with this car, so much so, that my dad is constantly bringing it into the house! Gracie just shoved her little bum in the car, which Emma liked for about 30 seconds!

Emma and Grace loved making sugar cookies with Mom....Emma was absolutly covered in icing and sprinkles, and Gracie just had a few little spots on her cheek. How can we have one super clean kid, and one wild crazy kid who is always dirty!

Sesame Street Live....Pretty Fun, not sure if it was worth the money, but the girls had a good time....I personally, couldn't wait for it to be over, pretty annoying!

Oklahoma Fun!

Gracie went down the slide all by herself for the first time and loved it.  She was cracking me up, by going down the slide feet first on her stomach, and you could hear her skin squealing all the way down. Her hair had a little static in it :).

Let me out!!

Yes, Lindsay and I climbed all the way to the top, I must say that the McDonald's on Mustang Rd. has the best indoor playplace for Mommies.

Riding the car at the commissary.....our kids normally do terrible at grocery stores, but when they had a friend...they did fabulous!

Sweet Korbin and Emma, I love Emma's hat....she was working it!

Emma is such a cheeseball!

Gracie and Kylie loved their mini ice cream cones.

I know its been awhile.....a long while, but our family has gone through some big changes the last few months. Steven is playing in the sandbox....and we have moved back to Oklahoma to be with our families so I can have help with the girls. I got a fabulous job, and our goal is to get rid of all of our debt in the next few months. I already paid off our TV and credit card, so all that's left is student loans and cars! Yeah! I am going to try to update this daily or every few days, mainly for my handsome hubby, so he can see what's going on with the girls. They are going to grow up so much in the next few months. Thursday, we went to McDonald's with my childhood best friend and her kiddos. We have been friends since we were 4 years old, and we are convinced our babies will marry someday so we will be family! :)
