~~ Special Night Coming~~

I am so excited! Taylor goes to preschool at our local rec center, which is AWESOME! Well, I just got an "invitation" for her first "Daddy/ Daughter Dance". It's for princes and their princesses. So, Matt is so EXCITED!!! It will be next month on a Saturday night. I am going to have so much fun getting her all dressed up and doing her hair. I am going to call the florist right down the street and order a "child size" corsage for Matt to give her too.

And, since they will be gone for a few hours, Cole & I decided that we will be going out on a date also. Cole says that he is taking me for ice cream!!

As you can tell....I LOVE these kind of things!!! I just had to share my excitement with you....I will have plenty more posts before that special night, but you know when the time comes, you will get to see many, many pics!

Love & Blessings to all~

~~~Circus FUNUNDRUM!! Cole's Birthday Part 2~~~

The 2nd part of Cole's birthday was a trip the the CIRCUS! And, we had such a good time!!! We are blessed that my cousin, Ronnie, works for Ringling Brothers, so he got us awesome tickets for the 2nd year in a row. We were on the 12th row~ perfect seats!

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Memories getting ready to begin......

Cole, Reagan & Matt

We had a truly AWESOME time!!! We made such awesome memories. I'm so glad that our friends were able to go with us. We had so many good laughs and us adults loved watching the looks on the kids faces...there were so many priceless moments.

For those of you who know Taylor, you know she is ALOT like me...if she thinks it, she says it. So, here are a few of the fun things that she said during the show. So cute~

~ At one point during the show (not sure the exact point), Taylor looked at me with her eyes as big as quarters and said "What in the name of Mike was that???" Of course, she got that from Polar Express. It was hilarious!!!

~ When all of the elephants came out, she said "Oh, mommy look~ it's Kelley Ann and all of her family. They are just so precious!"

~ There was a tightrope walker that had to try twice to climb up and incline. Well, when he finally made it, she said "Oh, I just knew he could do it. I am just so proud of him".

As always, I am so happy that I have this family to enjoy life with. I'm so proud to be their mommy!

Cole's 6th Birthday~ Part 1

Well, it is official!! My "baby" is now 6 years old!! I can't believe it. I had a tough day delivering him as many of you know...he was born a month early & I was very sick. So, delivery day wasn't easy, but he was born with no problems!! Little, but no problems. Matt & I are so blessed. He is such a wonderful little boy. He is just precious! He has a wonderful personality, he is sweet, affectionate and so loving!

On Saturday, we all went to the "Great Expectations" Childrens Museum. Our good friends were able to go with us, so Cole & Taylor has so much fun.

He was so excited to get his Wii Nerf game~ his daddy was too!

Learning about the pulley system

Taylor, Reagan & Cole on New Years Eve

Yeah, yeah, yeah~ I know!!!

In this picture, she's actually climbing up the pole instead of going down.
I know~~ I'm just praying she doesn't grow up to be a pole dancer ;)

Amy (Reagan & Riley's mom) had the kids making all kinds
of funny faces...it was hilarious! Too cute not to share!

Cole & Taylor milking a cow~ and yes, it was weird,
but liquid really did come out.

This picture is fuzzy, but I had to share. They had a "kids dance time" so Cole & Reagan went right up on stage and started dancing. Too Cute!!!

Cole & Reagan after cake time!

Look at that smile~ he was so happy!

~I love my boy~

And, Taylor finally did it~ she cut her own hair. Everyone told me that it would happen,
but, I was still hoping. At least she didn't cut it TOO short.
 Her hair was all one length....apparently she heard that "side bangs" are in!
Hopefully we will never have a repeat episode....I threatened her, so hopefully it won't!
I told her that if she did it again, then I would cut it short like Cole's!!!
I know~ bad mommy!!

Hopefully, there will be a "Cole's Birthday~ Part 2" soon. We are planning on going to the circus on Wednesday night!!
