Bella: "Mom, Ariel has a beautiful bra just like you!"

Thats funny...I dont remember having a purple seashell bra! LOL!

I Have Realized...

I have realized I don't like getting up early!

I have realized that Lilly is growing way too fast and will be 25 before I know it!

I have realized I don't like my husband being in the field!

I have realized that Bella really is a big girl now!

I have realized that I love baking!

I have realized we have already outgrown what I thought was a ginormous house!

I have realized that I am running out of Twilight books to read!

I have realized that I'm missing home too much!

I have realized that Mod Podge and a Sewing Machine have become essential items in my household!

I have realized that I'm in need of some visitors!

I have realized that Milano cookies are AMAZING!

Bella's Prayer!

"Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Guard me Jesus through the night,
and wake me with thy morning light."

"Jesus, please bless Santa. Oh, and his reindeer!"

(Bella then asked for blessings for pretty much everyone that she has ever known! It was a very, very long list! She has a great memory for a four year old! Haha!)

Our New Addition!

Today Robby's dream finally came true!

We got a bulldog! His name is Rocco, and he is such a good boy!

He has one blue eye and one brown! So cute!

He loves the girls, especially Lilly! He can't stop kissing her! LOL!

I was a little apprehensive at first about getting a dog while i still have an infant to take care of, but I'm realizing that he is a perfect addition to our little family!

He is 3 years old, so most of the training is already done which is nice! He just relaxes on the floor or comes to sit next to you if he wants some lovin's!

Very Mellow!

He's so sweet!
Welcome home boy!

Bella Says!

"Mommy I don't want a snake spoon!
Snakes don't like me...But elephants do!!!"

All At Once!

So the day before Easter, Lilly crawled! Yay!

Then, Yesterday, on Easter she got her first tooth!

Today she is trying very hard to pull herself up to stand!

She just has to do everything at the same time I guess!

Easter 2009!

We had a great Easter Yesterday!

The day started with the Bella waking up, finding her Easter basket, and eating almost all of the candy before Mommy and Daddy woke up! Ugh! Oh well!

Later on we had a bunny shaped lunch!
(That's a turkey sandwich...not just a piece of bread, in case you were wondering.)

After lunch it was off to the backyard to hunt for eggs!
I will warn you now! I took lots of pics!
Bella wanted to wear her Tinkerbell dress instead of her Easter dress! So funny!

The dog in the pic with Bella is soooo cute! Everytime we are in the backyard, this is what he does! He is so sweet!
Lilly loves the tutu I made for her! Mostly, she likes to eat it, but it looks so darn cute on her!
I cant stand it!

Lilly's first Easter egg!
Of course, she tried to eat it!
Poor girls...It was so freakin' bright outside!

Daddy loves!

After Dinner Bella and I decided to whip up some Easter "Peep-Cakes"! LOL!
Aren't they cute?
What a good day!!!

My New Best Friend!

Spraypaint is my new best friend!!! I'm not sure why I didnt do this to our dining room table years ago, but the other day I decided I was gonna change it up!

Before it was a plain white color with a wooden top!
The chairs were sooooo yucky! The seats were all stained and gross, and again white! Blah!
Four cans of spray paint and less than a yard of fabric later and...


Just look at the difference!

Amazing! LOL!

So this is how I found Lilly this morning!

I heard that she was awake but she wasn't fussing or anything so I went upstairs to check on her, and this was what she was doing. This was the first time she has ever pulled herself up. So cute. We're going to have to lower the bottom of her crib now though! HaHa

She was on her knees trying to reach her wipes...sneaky baby! When I walked in she just smiled and laughed at me because she knew I caught her!

I love my Lilly Bean!!!

Bella says!!!

"Mommy, ants are the smallest, and I'm a giant Bella!"

Thank You Popeye!

So for dinner I decided to make my favorite Bertolli Skillet meal. Chicken Florentine and Farfalle (Chicken, Farfalle Pasta, and...Spinach!)

When I served this to Miss Bella she dug in, but decided to tell me that she didn't like the green parts aka spinach!

So I asked her, " Dont you know what that is???"

Bella: "No."

Mommy: "Its Spinach, just like what Popeye eats, and remember spinach makes Popeye really strong!"

Bella: "Mmmmmmm! I'm going to eat lots of spinach so I can be berry strong!"

Mommy: "Ok!"

Bella then proceded to devour her dinner, spinach and all!
After every bite she took she had to flex her muscles of course! LOL!
