First Play Date

Laney Lou got invited to her very first play date and it was this morning. She was excited! I packed her a lunch and we went on our way to meet some friends from church. It's a beautiful day today, 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky, perfect! Great day to be outside...
It seemed like most of the mom's there had babies under 2 months of age, so Lane was totally taken by all these babies. She'd go over and peek inside a baby carrier and say, "Mama, baby sleeeeeeping". I guess I never realized that she hasn't been around many small babies before.

We stayed for about an hour, and about that time she started rubbing her eyes saying she was tired. We had a great time, thanks for the invite Melissa!

I was thinking the other day about how I have some pretty great friends. And a quick shout out to Facebook, the place that has brought me back to some friends I had years ago that I've gotten to re-connect with!
A really dear friend to me, Sharla, and her youngest, Caden, came out to see Laney and me yesterday. Sharla and I met at work in 2000. We pretty much got married around the same time, then started having kids around the same time. She lives on one side of Houston and I live on the other. Being so busy and raising kids unfortunately made it difficult to really keep close. I love her dearly and share some pretty great memories with her!

We had such a great time catching up, and Laney and Caden played well together. We're hoping one day maybe they'll date then get married? We can dream, right?? Haha And that Caden has some cool hair!

Thanks for your friendship Sharla, it means the world to me!

Fun with a Toddler

And yes, that is permanent marker, in case you were wondering. Gotta love the Wii paddles as bracelets, too. *sigh*

I love me some Lane, even on days like this!

Snuggie Mania

Really, what is it with these reversible robe type blankets that has gotten everyone so excited? Not sure, but count our oldest as one of the excited ones. She saw that there was a kid sized Snuggie and then it was all over with. She had to have one of her own!
Before the first cold snap I picked her up one at the store. Each night before bed she gets comfy on the couch under her Snuggie and gets all sleepy and ready for some sleep. She loves the thing...And look who else loves it, a sweet Booka!

Go Cart Ridin'

A few months back my Dad bought a go cart kit to build with his grandsons, and the project was finished over the Christmas holiday. Ryan got wind of the go cart and was chomping at the bit to go try it out. We all went over to my Dad's office this morning to give it a test drive. How fun was that?! The girls loved it, well, Addyson a bit more than was a good time!

Happy Two Thousand and Ten!

Crazy! 2010 already. Not sure where all the time has gone, but I'm so excited to be where I am right now. I have a pretty terrific husband and two sweetheart little girls, couldn't be happier!

I'm excited about 2010, I'm really hopeful that this will be our best year yet! There are some things I'm looking forward to doing this new year;

-Train, then run at least a 5K

-Take the girls to Disney World, either on Spring Break or over the holidays

-Go on a 5 day cruise in July with Ryan's whole family, all 40 of us!


-Move Lane to a big girl bed, and take her binky away

-Addyson starts Kindergarten

-Potty train Laney this Spring/Summer

-Lane starts pre-school(Yay for a two day a week break for Mommy!)

-Lots of home renovations(wood floors, built in cabinetry, painting)

This is just the tip of the iceberg, I'm sure there will be many more things to come, and probably some that I'm not even aware of yet!
