about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Birthday Girl

This is what Maggie & I (Daddy was still in bed) saw when we walked into Ellie's room and sang "Happy Birthday"! She was all smiles!

We decided to giver her the presents from us yesterday morning before Church. She crinkled her little nose and barked when she saw her Pucci Pup like Maggie's. Maggie also received a Belle dress and was the official assistant to the birthday girl.
Ellie loved her birthday candle, but didn't even touch her cupcake. She busted her upper lip pretty bad at a birthday party for Maggie's friend on Saturday and it was a little sore and swollen. Ellie spent most of the party in the kitchen going through the cabinets and playing with her Daddy!

Of course, Ellie's favorite gift wasn't a was a toy box from my mom, dad and sister. She loves to open and close it! She got four cute outfits, musical book and a vacuum cleaner that her sister managed to completely take over. I can't wait for her to wear the cute brown and white outfit from Auntie Lisa. I think she'll wear it to camp tomorrow.

We have an exciting summer planned! Of course, Maggie is going to Preschool Summer Day Camp at our Church and Ellie & I are going along to help out. We will also be keeping Cousin Callie in the mornings. I'm hoping to teach Callie how to multi-task and play with Maggie & Ellie at the same time. Both girls love her and want her all to themselves. We'll be going to the summer program for elementary aged children on Thursdays since Callie will be with us and of course, there will be lots of swimming and splashing in the pools. I'm going to try to take all three girls to the zoo and plan at least one fun activity each week for us to do...other than going to the grocery store! Maggie & I will also be going on a field trip with our Church in a few weeks.

Lots of fun!!!

And just so you know, Maggie has started calling Ellie random names. The most popular are Zoe and today it's Xavier.
I have no idea where she gets this stuff.
