Family Portraits with Day-Z Photography

I realized I never posted all of these before. We had these taken in November for our Christmas card with Amanda Adams at Day-Z Photography. She also did our maternity portraits with Remy and Remy's hospital birth portraits. Remy gave her a run for money with this session!
Here's our most recent family pictures!

Random Around the House, Laurens 2nd Bday, Ginny's Baby Shower, & Kindermusik Return

I have no real excuse for not blogging lately other than the fact I have 2 kids and well, just life in general! So here's a bunch of photos from my cell phone and small camera that I finally found the battery charger for!
This is old but never posted. Remy standing on her zibra riding toy.
My kitchen looks like this daily. Remy can reach the utensils drawer!.....Amongst other things. We now have our kitchen trash locked in the pantry, and she wont quit climbing on top of the kitchen table!
2 weeks ago the girls ate lunch together at the kid table. Remy's first time to eat sitting at a table like a big girl!
2 weeks ago-Chickfila did free breakfast on a Thur and they looked so cute before heading out!
Saturday before last Remy went to her neighbor friend Lauren's 2nd birthday party! It was a cute "Very Hungry Caterpillar" theme.
Hard to see Remy in the middle-teeny tiny brown & pink blur.
Birthday girl!
You HAVE to see Remy's cute dance at the party!
Remy and another neighbor cutie Zoe.
Doing the games like a big kid.
THEN that same Saturday I went to a baby shower for a MOPS friend. It was the CUTEST setup ever!
"The Princess and the Pea" theme
And they made little peas in a pod candy! Too cute!
Ginny got a LOT of cute, cute baby girl things for miss Julia Claire who was born this past Friday! She also has a little boy too.
While I was at the baby shower David sent me this photo he took off the baby monitor. Remy climbs on the rail of her bed and was playing with the closet lightswitch. Her crib is now in the middle of her room where she can reach nothing!
Last Wednesday Remy and I returned to Kindermusik!
We were both so happy to be back and see some friends return and make some new ones too!
This was last week sometime. Remy just looked so grown up.
Matching sissys having a goldfish snack at Mimi's this past weekend.
Monday Rylie wasnt acting herself. Not sick, just almost acting like she was having a panic attack or something? She was crying so hard that she didnt want to go to school and was clinging to me and actually wanted me to snuggle with her. So we stayed home and she chilled on the couch. She loves her LeapPad from Christmas!
And my life's just been busy lately with these 2 goobers!
I love them so much. They give me a workout daily chasing after them, arguing back, making messes, etc etc but I couldn't love them anymore even if they were perfect-behaved girls who never made a mess.

27th Birthday

Saturday night David and I had a wonderful date night! It was an early birthday celebration for me and I picked PF Chang's for dinner.

LOVE their crab wontons appetizer! We also shared spring rolls and Chang's Spicy Chicken which was phenomenal! Seriously good dinner. I couldn't have been more pleased with it. 

I cant find my small camera battery charger so I just had my cell phone to use for pictures!

After dinner we went to Sprinkles right by PF Chang's and got some cupcakes to go. Then we rushed over to see "This Is 40." SO HILARIOUS! I cant wait to own that movie. Loved it. We went home after the movie and ate our cupcakes. I gotta say, Crave is better! Sprinkles cupcake part were good and moist, but the frosting wasn't even close to being our favorite. And thanks to Mimi for watching both girls overnight for us! She emailed me the picture above of them in Rylie's bed Sunday morning! I'm so glad they were good for her and I know they had fun as well.

Today's my actual birthday and it's been a pretty good day. My friend Becca took me to a yummy lunch (in the nonstop pouring rain we've had lately) while Remy stayed home with Daddy! David later brought home roses and I got a lot of cards in the mail and tons of love on Facebook and texts today! I decided to make this Cinnamon Roll Cake again from Pinterest instead of a birthday cake. It tasted better the 1st time I made it but still good this time too. 

I must say, Rylie by far is more excited about my birthday than anyone else! She's called me "birthday girl" all day, told everyone she's come across this week, and said for my gift she was going to give me a new recipe to make some cupcakes (which I'm sure she would've loved for me to make for her to eat hehe!). She colored me a picture and sang to me and has just been the sweetest thing.

Thanks everyone for making today special and for all the birthday love!

Remy's 1st Haircut!

New Year's Day we headed to the Woodlands. Rylie needed a little hair trim and we decided to go ahead and get Remy's 1st cut too!

Remy watched Rylie first
See her crazy hair?!

And the MULLET?? UGH! It drove me crazy!

Clearly Remy was excited about this haircut, no?

Who knew she loved her mullet so much lol

But once the bubbles came out, it was "what haircut?"

She totally cooperated for the stylist too. Yep.

"Ok....I'm calm now."
First cut!!!

Aww such a big girl!

Almost done!

A little blow dry.

Ta da!

Next was the carousel ride! Hehe!

Cant believe how big they both look!

Fun fun times!
