Happy Birthday Grandmama

Grandmama's birthday cook out was almost a rain out.

Derek tries to pogo 76 times in a row!

Lindsay being as cute as she can be...

Happy Birthday!!!

No, it's not Halloween yet and I DO have permission to use this photo. Apparently my BIL David woke up with Bell's Paulsy a day or so ago. Hope you're doing better Dave!

No, Brooke did not grow a goatie. It's chocolate from Aunt Helens' awesome chocolate raspberry birthday cake. Helen I still have my order in for my birthday!(and you were right it was even better the next day!)

Derek & Brooke get some bonding time.

There's the usual crew around the candles!

Blowing out the candles!

oops, out of order...

Lins confirming who stinks!

It wasn't HER!!

Brooke on the move!

Grandad is always up for a good read!


The cute crooked smile (for you Dave)

Shhh...I am trying to work here!

Break Time!

Around the House

Lindsay strikes a pose cracking Brooke up!
It's more fun to sit on a diaper box than on a real chair huh Brooke

Lindsay is a chatter box these days, and I can't imagine Brooke will be different.
Brooke is walking now. (Really Well)
She says mama, dada, amen, (thanks to prayer time). She also imitates her sister, and loves to climb all over everything! She says milk nods her head yes & No accordingly when asked a question. She has seen Lindsay on the potty so often she mimics the clapping I went pee pee dance! I think she may potty train faster than Lindsay before it's all said and done.

Brooke's 1st Trip to Brusters

We got her a baby cone of cotton candy flavor. I think she liked it!
She had trouble gumming the cone

Happy Girl

Lindsay showing off her Purple Dinosaur

Another Happy Girl

The shy, "I didn't do it" look.

Purple is her favorite color!!

Play Date with Avery & Cambree

Today we had a play date with our neighbors' twin granddaughters (age 3)
Avery & Cambree were great with Brooke, they love babies!

Crystal used to teach pre-school so she has lots of good arts/craft ideas. Lindsay had a blast having a playdate today!

All the girls catching the camera at craft time!



Linds working on her picture frame.

Brooke hanging out with Skipper dog and Mozart cat

Lunch time

Handwashing time...the girls had a blast playing in the water

Brooke & Linds both came home soaked.

Brooke's First Toothbrushing

I know once they have teeth we should already be brushing, but we have just started making it a habit for Brooke.
She does really well with it.

Lindsay loves it and now adding Brooke to the mix makes it more fun for her.

I do it myself...

Linds lets Dad help
