Yesterday I got the oppertunity to spend most of the day with Charlotte. We went to lunch just the two of us and did some shopping. It was awesome and she was so excited to spend some one on one time with just Mom. We talked and laughed and she helped me pick out some clothes for Tuesday and some Valentines decorations. Meanwhile, Jan and Tuesday had a good time at home! She was in quite the dancing mood yesterday!
I always try to blog often, and with great intentions, it never works out that way! So this year I will attempt to blog daily with at least 1 picture and a summary of the day! Super excited! So here was yesterday!
Our dear daughter is a New Years baby, what a wonderful day to begin a new year, a whole year older! She turned 6 yesterday and had such a great day.
We began the day by getting ready to go see Happy Feet 2 at the theatre with her friend Hannah and my friend Amber.
What a sweet movie! She loved it! After the movie we came home to get Daddy and Sissy and go to Toys R Us. Since Charlotte turned 4 we decided to let her pick her own birthday gifts since her day is so close to Christmas, its really hard to buy a gift for her in advance. So she picked some Bizu bracelets, a pillow pets blanket, a tinkerbell in a lantern, a game for her new Leapster 2 and a Xia Xia crab! Super fun stuff!
Then we came home, hubby left to go get some pizza and my friends Amber and BJ came over with their kids Hanna, Desiree, and Kayla to have dinner and cake with us.
Yes that is Justin Bieber on her cake! lol After cake she opened her gifts, she got a JB doll, a Lalaloopsy ferris wheel and a zhuzhu pets movie theatre.
So glad we got to spend her day with some good friends! Happy 6th Birthday Charlotte!
Wow I havent posted since August! Better get back to it!
Been a long few months as we gear up for hubbys deployment. Charlottes been doing well in Kindergarten, Tuesday is starting to talk a lot more and starting to refuse naps! Of course theres been a lot more happening, but I'm prolly just gonna start off fresh later today instead of a big recap!
But for now, heres a pic of my beautiful princesses!
Just as soon as we said hello to kindergarten, we had to say goodbye to Charlotte's best friend Josh. Last Thursday, they finished clearing their house and headed off to the good Ole state of Washington. They just arrived today and are happy to report that they have housing! As we were sad to see them go, we are thrilled that they get to experience a new post and make new friends. Already we are feeling the loss of them though. Charlotte has missed getting on the bus with him, as she has almost everyday since the first day of Pre-K last year. She has also asked a few times if she can go across the street and play with him. I just don't think its hit her yet. So with processing that and all the other craziness that goes on around here, I haven't had much time to post. But here are some pictures of the kids from the last few days they were here.
Then the next few days we hung out with some other friends. On Saturday we went with my friend Amber and her daughter Hannah to do a few errands. We went to Lifeway and stocked up on some Veggie Tales essentials, and got some PJ's for Tuesday at Once Upon a Child. All 3 kids fell asleep in the car, bless their little hearts!
That has been about it for the last few days, got a few busy one ahead of us, then hopefully next week things calm down some! Hope everyone is having an awesome week! Also hoping I can get back to posting more frequently!
I totally did not take ANY pictures this weekend, but I did steal a few from today and last night from my friends facebook!
Saturday we went to Nashville with our friends who are moving on Thursday. We stopped in at Trader Joes and went to the Mall at Green Hills. Got some essentials at TJ's and just window shopped at the mall. Its all crazy expensive stores like Pottery Barn Kids and Williams Sonoma. Love them, but the army sure doesnt pay us enough to afford them! <3 While we were at the mall I got the pleasure of eating at the Cheesecake Factory for the first time! Oh wow! Their chicken alfredo was so good!!!!
After the mall, we headed to the park with a few other friends.
This was how Tuesday felt about it for the most part! She had a long day and was over it at that point.
This morning we went to church and brought a friend! After church I had a few errands to do then we had some friends over to grill hamburgers and hotdogs! Charlotte loves having all her friends over, so she was having a blast. The boys spent the day mostly like this:
Of course they all had fun. The kids mostly played at the park behind my house, but some like this one were sweet and stayed in the yard to play with Tuesday.Dont mind her crazy hair, she was super cute for church and naturally ripped her hairband out during naptime. So she stayed this way the rest of the day! At some point you gotta just let kids be kids! The adults then had a fire after Tuesday went to bed! We made it an early night though since kids all have school tomorrow! (Amen!)
Tomorrow we will be straightening up the yard, then going to the Commissary and PX. As well as straightening up the laundry room. I might be brave and share the before and after pics here. Maybe... Its ugly, if you didnt know me and only saw that and the master closet, you might sign me up for Hourders!!!!! LOL So kidding.... maybe.
