3rd Tooth, Katy Friends, MDO, & Baseball Field Trip!

Sunday night Rylie lost her 3rd tooth! It'd been hanging for a couple days so I was glad she pulled it out at bedtime!

She was so excited the toothfairy would visit again and set out her door and a new little pillow to put her tooth in on her nightstand.

Monday Rylie had a school holiday so we drove out to Katy to get the girls new sandals for Easter at the outlet mall and stopped to see our friends Carter and Sophie. The big girls loved playing dressup together!

And Remy and Sophie were so cute playing. They're also adding another baby girl to their family in July! So exciting!

This pictures really dark (taken on my cell phone). I woke up 5am Tues morning to wait in line to register Remy for MDO! In this pic there's a guy in a tent. Others arrived at midnight. CRAZY! Thankfully Remy did get a spot and starts this June the same school Rylie attends now.

When I got home Tues morning Remy had woken up with a fever =( I'd never seen her like this. She would just lay around, snuggle....actually SNUGGLE with David and I, and slept like a newborn.

It was the saddest, yet sweetest sight. I cant say I didnt mind the snuggles although I hated the cause of them.

Today Rylie had an off-campus field trip to Lonestar Baseball Academy in Baytown. She was SO excited about it!

Getting instructions from Christopher Sampson-former pitcher for Houston Astros who owns the Academy.

Then they all did different stations. Rylie's group did batting first with the pitching machine.

Then she worked out (doing pushups) in the weight room

Then they did exercising for catching a ball while hopping through these squares.


Video of her practicing catching after the hopping part.

Then they got to pitch a ball to Christopher Sampson. How often would Rylie get a chance to pitch a baseball to a professional player??


Video of her pitching a strike! She did great!

Rylie with Mr Sampson (dont be jealous, David!)

Lastly, they practiced hitting on the tee.


Video of her hitting.

Then everyone had pizza for lunch before going home! Rylie had a blast! So glad I got to attend this with her! Maybe we should signup for teeball now?

We got home and Remy woke up with still a low fever but feeling better. She actually played a little and talked and ate a little more.

Presley's 1st Birthday Party & Waco Trip

Saturday morning we drove up to Waco for our friends' daughter Presley's 1st birthday party at their house.

Rylie was so excited to jump on their trampoline with Presleys big sister Kinley!

And Remy had fun running around the backyard

Presleys present table!

She had a cute milk and cookies theme party and Shelly did a great job on the setup!

Cute cake!

Cake and pictures-my camera was just not getting good lighting this day!

Milks

Opening our gift!

I ordered a shirt from Becca and made a bow to match it. We also got her a cute birthday book not pictured.

Remy ate a LOT of cookies!

Big sisters Kinley and Rylie

Time for cake!

Took her a minute...then she dug in!

I know Shelly will have better pictures on her blog but it was a cute party and we had fun!


After the party we met my sister and the boys for dinner. Hayden was SO CUTE and wanted to sit with Remy.

Rylie and Isaac had their own little big kid thing going on at the end of the table.

These 2 were just too funny!

After dinner we headed back home to Houston. Long day but so fun! It'd been way too long since we'd been up there and especially since we've seen the boys. Hopefully it wont be that long before we're up again next!

Valentine's Day!

We had a sweet day last Thur! The girls looked pretty in their black and pink heart dresses! 

Remy was being sweet and giving Rylie hugs!


First we ate a Valentine-y breakfast I made of heart shape pancakes and pink scrambled eggs. Then we went for a bike ride/little car ride in our neighborhood. It was so pretty outside!

Then we did lunch at our local Subway-Rylie's choice. 

Remy LOVED her sandwich and chips!

Then after naps and when David came home, we gave the girls little somethings.

Rylie's been reading so much lately and wanted to read her whole card first.

I made her this cute chunky bead necklace in her favorite color.

It's a little long (I couldn't try it on her for sizing since it was a surprise!) so I'm going to shorten it. I just love these necklaces! I've started one for Easter too (shhh!)

I also found the items to make a cupcake hairclip just like the one she was obsessed with and lost last Summer.

She was so happy to have the cupcake hairclip "back"

Remy got 2 pretty flower headbands

And David surprised me with the Brandon Heath cd!!!

The girls and I gave David some cards and his favorite chocolate.

We just made ourselves a low-key dinner at home and had a pretty great day! I really look forward to Valentine's Day now!
