Jingle Bells

My beautiful girls,
It seems that our lives just keep flying by.  We are just 17 days away from Christmas!  I can't believe it! Experiencing this Christmas season with you girls has been so much fun!  Santa has assigned us our very own elf this year!  We have named him Eugene.  He is always up to no good!  Take a look...










We have gone to see Christmas Lights, we went to Dicken's Festival in downtown Plano, and this morning we had breakfast with Santa!  You girls were not shy at all with Santa!  You ran right up to him and gave him a big hug!  In fact, you sat on his lap several times.  :)








We have many more adventures awaiting us this Christmas!  I am loving this time that we are sharing together!  You girls bring so much joy and laughter to my life!  You are growing so fast!  Lyla, you have been crawling out of your crib lately.  :)  I rolled over in my bed this morning to find you in bed with me.  Silly girl!  :)

I love you my baby girls!  In a few weeks we will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary as a family!  Wait until you see the cake!  Thank you for being such a blessing to me!

Sweet Moments

My dear baby girls,
I am just eating up these moments with you! I am cherishing every time you run to me screaming, "Mommy! Mommy!" when I come to pick you up from daycare or Sunday School.  I know that I won't always have these moments.  I am loving introducing you to Christmas music and sharing my love of all things pumpkin!  You girls are more precious to me than you will ever know!  I love your sweet hugs and kisses.  I love watching the two of you be sweet to each other.  I love to watch the two of you laugh together.  I pray that the two of you will grow up to be best friends!
Thank you for bringing such joy to my life.  I love you girls so much!  I pray that you girls will have sweet, loving and kind hearts.  I pray that your hearts are filled with compassion towards others.  I love my little pumpkins so much!  I know that I will make many mistakes as your Mommy.  I pray that God will fill in the gaps!!!

I love you girls forever and always!

Mommy

October

Dear Mia & Lyla,
I can't believe that it is already October!!! This year is flying!  I am loving that you are older and will understand and enjoy more this holiday season!  I love Fall!  I think that it has become one of my favorite times of year.  Mommy loves all things Pumpkin and I am sharing that love with you too!  You seem to be loving it too!  You girls are growing so fast!!  Mia, you used the word "actually" about a month or so ago (& you used it correctly)!  The other day, I had you helping me put grapes in a zip loc bag.  I said, "Mia, you are doing such a good job helping mommy put the grapes in the bag!"  You said, "yes, yes I am!" Ha!  I about fell on the floor laughing! Lyla, you are a talker too!!  I love when I say "Good Morning" to you every morning and you repeat it back to me.  I love when I whisper "I love you" to you and you whisper it back to me!  I just love you girls to pieces!!  I am so glad that God chose us to be a family!!!
Yesterday, we went to the Dallas Zoo on a school field trip with mommy.  We had a great time!













You girls were so good and I loved spending the day with you!  We had a great day today too!  Today was Mia's last dance class.  Since there was only one other girl there, Lyla got to participate too.  You girls had so much fun!  We had lunch with Mr. Chris, a good nap, went shopping, came home for dinner and Pumpkin ice cream (YUM!), and ended the evening cuddling on the couch watching Cinderella.  I love you girls so much!!!  I love it when you are sweet to each other and help each other out.  I love to listen to you girls laugh.  You make my heart smile!!

Here are some pics from today's dance class and then from other dance classes:


















We've also had fun this fall with college football!  I have taught you the FSU War Chant and you make me sing the FSU Fight Song over and over!  :)  You laugh at me whenever I yell during the football games.  :)



You've had your first pony rides this fall...at daycare and at the Zoo with me yesterday.



I love our little family!  I love you girls...ALWAYS!!!


More to come this month as we visit a pumpkin patch and dress up for Halloween and go to our Fall Festival at Church.

Until then...how much does Mommy love you?  How much does Jesus love you?

Birthday

Mia,
Yesterday was your 3rd birthday!  I can't believe it!  You have grown so much in the year and half that you have been with me.  I was not in town for your birthday last year (I didn't know that you would still be with me).  We began your birthday celebrations on Saturday in Tyler at Aunt Roxie & Uncle Scott's.  Here is a video of it:

We swam most of the day and then we had cake and presents with family.  On Sunday, we came home, went to Church, home for lunch (your request), nap, and then Chuck 'E' Cheese with miss Melissa.  The Ary's got you a play kitchen, which you and Lyla LOVE!!!!!  Today, we had your 3 yr check up (very easy), so we are spending the day together going shopping and to the movies!!!

I love you and Lyla so much!!  I am so blessed to have you girls in my life!!!!  Here are some more pics from the weekend.
