All the little ones pose at the end of their hunt with their baskets full.
Try getting 5 girls to all look at 1 camera...IMPOSSIBLE!

Brooke's New Umbrella (just like my sister)

We have been having "umbrella envy" in our house lately. So we finally had to break down and go to Wally World to get Brooke her very OWN umbrella.
I wanted her to get The Little Mermaid version different from Lindsay's Pink Princess version but of course Brooke HAD to have the same one as her sister. Let me just tell you Lindsay goes NOWHERE without her umbrella!

as now is Brooke... who pronounces it so cutely as "umbella"


How cute am I?

Family Day in Blue Ridge 3/11/10

My nephew Ed came to visit for a week up in North Georgia with his friend Jessica and they stayed at her family cabin near Blue Ridge. They invited us and the girls up for the day yesterday we had an absolute blast with them and Uncle Steve came up for the day as well. They were such great hosts. We had pizza for lunch and the girls were so happy they had cheese pizza on hand especially for them and capri suns which is a major treat for them, because we don't usually keep those on hand!

Me and my nephew Ed who I took care of when he was a baby!
The girls LOVE their cousin Ed!!

Here is Jessica and Brooke. Jessica was a major hit with the girls!

As you can see here, Brooke was all smiles with her. That is how it was the entire visit!
Ed demonstating Pigtails to Lindsay!!
Brooke and Lindsay playing on the downstairs deck!
Jessica & Linds posed a great shot!

Me, Brooke, Cousin Ed and Lindsay after our Burger and hot dog cook out.
Jessica's cousins who live close by came over for the cook out and brought their 4 year old daugter Stella who Lindsay and Brooke got to play with. Here is Stella and Linds prepping for a race they were totally competitive, but poor Linds does not have as long of legs as Stella. So she did not stand a chance racing!

All the girls chillin' after dinner!
Go Stella go!
Here is Jessica helping Brooke race. Brooke kept saying " I WIN, I WIN!!"

The girls hanging out on the porch swing.
More hanging out with Jessica!! The girls just loved her to death. Lindsay cried that Ed and Jessica were going home today...so sweet!
