Remember This???

It is hard for me to believe that this picture was taken a little over a year ago.....

This was the first picture that we ever had taken of the four of us together. 

This past weekend, we once again attended our annual subdivision picnic/cook out.  It was filled with good food, great company, the excitement of a bounce house & a visit from our local fire department.  We once again attempted to get a group shot on the fire truck.  Here is what we got:

I still can't believe how big my munchkins have gotten in the last year!  The girls were very interested in the fire truck.  Addison was totally into checking everything out.

Above:  Addison totally into the fire truck. 

Above:  Addison was pretty excited about the orange cones protecting the perimeter of the truck.

The girls were also pretty excited to have their first experience in a bounce house.  We cleared out all the big kids for about five minutes and the girls got to "bounce".....correction, I got to bounce the girls up and down.  They really loved it.  They liked crawling around in the bounce house, but were more excited when we would lift them up and down to jump.

Above:  Me & Addison.  That little girl just couldn't get enough of the bounce house.

Love that smile!

Above:  Alexis laughing so hard she was almost crying. 

And I saved the best for last.....The girls were super excited just to be outside playing.  Terry was able to capture some incredible pictures of the girls roaming about.  Here are a few of my favs:

The above five pictures are all Alexis.  Notice the leaf she is STILL carrying around?

The above five pictures are all Addison.  Do you think she may be teething?  I seriously can't get that girl to keep her fingers out of her mouth lately.  The last photo is my favorite.

Bubble Time!!

In an attempt to kill some time before the girls went to bed we played with bubbles tonight.  I'm not sure who had more fun, the girls or Mommy and Daddy!!!  We discovered that bubbles are still fun, no matter how old you are!!! And yes, that is our patio table turned over on its side to keep the girls on the deck.  Some may say it's a redneck baby gate, but I don't care....IT WORKS!!!

About a week ago we made another fun-filled trip to the park.  It amazes me the things that impress and/or fascinate the girls every time we go.  This trip included Alexis becoming fond of a tree stump.

And Addison discovering her love of slides.  It may not look like it in this picture but she LOVES to slide.  She has become a little more adventurous lately, and has even tried the "twisty tube slide" you can see in this picture.  The smiles when we visit the park melt my heart over and over again.

Fashion Faux Pas??

Apparantly Addison thinks that the way I dress her recently is not quite up to par.  Lately whenever Addison is wearing a tank top, I will find her looking like this.....

I promise I didn't do this to her, she did it herself.  And she thinks it's hilarious!!
Again, not the best pictures but I couldn't pass up capturing this moment on camera. 

Remember When....

Remember when my kiddos were little and they would let me pose them in their chairs to take pictures?

Well, Not so much anymore!  I attempted to take photos of the girls in their chairs and this is what I got...

Addison running away from me.
Both girls ignoring me.
Alexis attempting to use it as a step stool.
Alexis determined not to look directly at me.  But at least she is sitting.
Addison completely fighting it!
Bribing Addison with a stuffed animal didn't work.

My little babies aren't so little anymore!

You tell me....

What's more fun than sitting in a box full of your blocks???

 Standing on top of that box of course!

Sorry for the poor picture quality....they were taken from my phone.
