Big Bay's turned three and the 16th of November! Where has the time gone! We celebrated her birthday over at our clubhouse. When I asked Baylee what she wanted for her birthday dinner she told me mac and cheese! I didn't think that would work to serve grandmas and grandpas that would be showing up so I suggested spaghetti. She was good with that. After dinner everyone showed up for her party and boy did she haul in the toys! Many people love that little girl! She insisted on a Mermaid cake and all day that is all she could think about!
Baylee and new movie!
Baylee hauled that pillow pet all over Toys R Us!
What a cheeser MOM!
All Baylee's PALS!!
I had to inclued this pic. We took it at the end of the party! HELLO MINI ME!!
Brooklyn is getting so big. About a month ago she came home from school and told us her tooth was loose. Andrew looked at me and asked if she was old enough to be loosing teeth, then told Brooklyn to quit wiggling those teeth! I assured him that if her teeth are ready to come out then she is old enough! About a week and a half later that baby was out! Daddy tied floss around it and between him and Drew they convinced Brooklyn that it wasn't going to hurt and it needed to come out.
She looks a little traumatized by the whole thing but she did great. Now she has showed us that THREE more teeth are loose. The girl is going to be our toothless wonder!!
For Halloween our apartment complex had a party on the Friday before Halloween. They served dinner and then they had trunk or treat around the complex. We decided to go over and check it out. The next day our ward had their Halloween party and trunk or Treat. Before we headed there we had to stop by my work and show Karen the kids. Between the candy the got on Friday, the candy at the mall, Trunk or Treat at the church my kids were set! Jaxsen thought it was so neat that he could carry around a bucket and people put candy of all things in it!!
We finally got internet at our house so I can finally start updating my blog. The week of Halloween Brooklyn's school had red ribbon week. One day was crazy hair day. We took full advantage. Brooklyn was kind of worried that she would be the only one with crazy hair but as she got off the bus that day I found she wasn't the only one. Take a look!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
