Halle's First Sleepover

Halle had her first sleep over with her friend Lauren (Halle pronouces it Learn lol). They did so well and had a great time together. Thanks Andi for letting Lauren stay with us, we will definitely do it again!

Reading books to each other.

We started with some Happy Meals and Littlest Pet Shop.

Then it was time for Play Doh.


After they spilled most of the bubbles.

Good girls! Sharing bubbles so they both can play!

Playing on the slide.
(I went inside to get more bubbles and when I came out, they had covered themselves and the slide in bubble soap)

After okaying it with Andi, I let them play with squishy bath stuff since they would be getting a bath.

Andi and I went shopping on Sunday and got matching nightgowns for the girls!

Jumping on the bed!

Getting the giggles. They laughed for 30 minutes before they finally went to bed.

Halle: "Give me a hug, Lauren"
Lauren: "Why?"
Halle: "Because I love you!"
Lauren: "Okay!"

It was dark when I took this picture but the flash is on. This was at 9:30 p. m...they were asleep by 9:00 p.m.

They woke up at 7:00 a.m., I got out of bed at 8:00 a.m. to find this!

Having a 10:00 a.m. tea party.

Lauren giving me a cookie.

Silly girls!

Alex's 31st Birthday

This year, Halle wanted to go with a Spongebob Squirrelpants theme. Alex had a great birthday weekend. He had a party, got lots of presents, went to Applebee's, the playground, and the comic book store. Best 8th, er, 31st birthday ever!

Ready for the party.

No cake is complete without chips and ice cream!


Birthday Tiana had to sing Happy Birthday to Daddy.

my SpongeBob centerpiece I made out of a box, construction paper, and pipe cleaners.

Blow out the candles.

This girl LOVES cupcakes.

Wearing his SpongeBob rings and his kitty/space/taco shirt.

More cupcakes please!

Reading his card from Halle.


Opening his (Halle's) present from Halle.

Yay, Halle got you doggies to share with her.

So happy that Daddy is going to share his present with her.

Halle's a little bow crazy.

Creeper Alert! Check out Halle's face!

Reading their comic books.

Easter Fun 2013

Funny Story #1: We were reading Halle the Easter story and we got to the part where Jesus wasn't in the tomb when  the women went to see him. I told Halle "He came back to life, He's alive, Isn't that awesome?!" Halle said, "Did that make Mary and her friend happy?" Me: "Yes, it made them so happy!" Halle: "I hope the Easter bunny brings me candy tomorrow!" This kid is hilarious. I try!

Funny Story #2: The next morning Halle woke up and went looking for her Easter basket. She found it and there were two La Dee Da dolls with it (I got these 70% off at the Target toy sale in January). Halle said "uh, these are for my birthday!" She remembered buying these in January! This kid doesn't forget anything!

Funny Story#3: We were watching Smurfs and Halle said "Howard's friend dresses like that!" She was talking about an episode of The Big Bang Theory when Howard and Bernadette dress as Smurfs for a Halloween party. I don't even remember when we watched that one!

And what you
