More big girl pictures

Our little pumpkin woke up this morning with a little nasal congestion.  Actually she didn't sleep soundly last night tossing and turning quite a bit.  I called Dr. Bradley and she said to do "little Noses" and run a humidifier in her room at night.  She slept a lot at Nana's today, guess she had to catch up on her sleep from last night. ;)  After we got home she seemed pretty happy and I was able to catch these pictures.

Thanks to everyone who came to Burger King night to support Liberty School.  They had a great turn out

Check out Kara Brooke holding herself up on her elbows...such a big girl!

Kaylee sends out a HUGE thank you to Jennifer P. for the box tops!

Happy Birthday to Me-Me!
We went to Olive Garden to celebrate her day!

While we were at the Olive Garden Kaylee had her Daddy pull a tooth.  Check out that gaping hole on the bottom of the huge smile!

Thank you Mr. UPS man!

Lookie what the UPS man brought to my house today....
Don't you just love Kaylee and Kara Brooke's new Kelly's Kids outfits???  I sure do, be on the lookout, ummm say sometime around Christmas, for those two matching outfits on the backs of my babies... on maybe a Christmas card perhaps?!  Oh and Kaylee's green and pink outfit is just to die for as well!   I love being able to buy matching girlie clothes, guess I better enjoy it while Kaylee still thinks it is cool too!  ;)

Say a little prayer...

Please dear friends....say a little prayer for me and Kara Brooke  as she will make the transition from Nana's to her new babysitter, Mrs. Sheila.  I'm sure KB will do just fine, I'm just really worried about me, I will probably go crazy tomorrow!  Not that I don't trust our sitter but this is my baby.....and will she know that Kara Brooke needs to burp half way through her bottle, that she likes to sleep on her belly, that she has to lay on HER blanket because of her sensitive skin and that she really loves her paci and please if she drops it, wash it off....I mean seriously...she does know all of this stuff right??  Of course she does, she knows exactly what she is doing and besides KB will have her good friend Ethan P.  (Susan's little boy) there with her and I know that HE will take good care of her!  I think I have packed up everything in the house that she could possibly need...poor Mrs. Sheila...I would hate to deal with a Mommy like me, therefore I must find self control!!
Oh yeah and Kaylee would like to invite everyone out to Burger King Wednesday night as she will be collecting receipts for her school between 6:00 & 7:00!  See ya there!

3 months old

Our little pumpkin is 3 months old today!  We went to see Angie at Gambill Photography yesterday for KB's 3 month pictures.  I don't think it was very successful but I guess I should wait until I see the proofs before I say that.  Kara Brooke wasn't in the best of moods but hopefully Angie was able to capture a few.  Be watching for those.

Kara Brooke got her first book in the mail today from Ms. Dolly!
Big sister reading The Little Engine That Could
to little sister.

So this morning I hear Kaylee in the bathroom making tons of noise, I go in there and this is what I see...

Yes that is right, she is standing on the toilet with and empty toilet paper roll in hand with a fly trapped in the toilet paper roll!

Swim party and awards!

Saturday night was the end of the year swim team party.  The rec center was closed to the public and was only open to the team and their family.  The night began with swimming of course then pizza, more swimming and then concluded with the awards program.  I am always so proud of Kaylee no matter what...but she really out done herself swimming this year.  She received the most improved swimmer award and the trophy was absolutely beautiful.  She also received 8 scadittles which meant she improved her time eight times throughout the year!!  I thought that was great, what more could I ask of her?  She was so sweet on the way home she said, "Mom thank you sooooo much for supporting me this year in swim, because I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed swimming! And next year I will have two more supporters, Nana & Kara Brooke!"  That is right baby girl add two more to the cheering section for next year!  (Nana stayed home with KB this year so that Kris & I could enjoy the swim meets, even though Nana was about to die to see her swim..you know Nana don't miss anything when it comes to these two girls!)
