Some of the things they say...

Why is that when you are in front of your parents, or heaven forbid your entire extended family, your children decide to say things that makes you want to crawl into a hole and hide out for awhile. Maybe it is just my children, but they only say bad words in front of my parents. Also, when we visit the doctor, my children love to make me feel like the worlds worst mom! No examples needed, mostly because I don't need to relive the embarrassment. I just don't understand what would provoke them to do these things, and if you have had the privilege of being around at this time, I apologize! When the girls were really small, they would always make a liar out of me as well. So let me take this moment to say that I am sorry to my mom and dad!

Newby in Town

First, I would just like to thank all of you who have checked out my new blog. I am very new to the "blogging world" as if you could not tell, but I am really enjoying it. I spend most of my time looking for new widgets, gadgets??? but anyway. I have been reading some other mommy blogs, which are hilarious by the way, and I am really entertained but feeling more and more normal by the second. I thought I would steal a second to write on here while my girls are getting ready for ballet. I know that is dangerous territory...letting Ansley out of my sight is often regretful. But I guess my day has been too quiet.
I have been getting ready for our family vacation. I always feel as if I am spending way too much money on getting ready for the trip than I will actually spend on the trip. My trips to Costco are getting out of control. Please do not pass this information on to my husband, somethings are better left unknown. And can I just let out a BIG scream when I say it is bathing suit season yet again! At least I have fun picking out the girls swimsuits, and that's about it. Why is life so hard? So... don't judge me when I say I mostly bought junk food for the long drive down to Florida.

Emmalee's 6th Birthday

My little Emmalee has turned 6. Yes you heard right...6! I can't even begin to comprehend this. I know, I should have seen this coming, right? Well she did and now I am the proud parent of an already acting out teenager it seems. I kid, she is great and a really grown up six year old. Sometimes I worry she is too good.
Anyway, we had a pinkalicious party. If you have not heard of this and you have a little girl, don't worry you will and should. Go to the store now and buy the books, they are awesome! It was a great party. It was a bounce you can only imagine the fun (and naps) that we had. She had the cutest pinkalicious cupcakes and a very cute outfit to go with it.
As time goes by, I wonder what kind of person she will be when she is older. I am so excited to see her become this great girl. I like to think I had a little to do with this. She has a great family and friends that I know all contributed to her cute little personality.
Happy Birthday Emmalee!
