Daddy Daughter Dance

My lucky husband is the father of 3 girls.  So, it was a given that he would have to be at the Daddy Daughter Dance the kids had a school.  He didn't have to take Harley this time, but next year...oh yeah.  He snapped a few pictures of the dance and the girls getting down.

Cinco, Cinco, Cinco!!

On May 5th, the kids had the day off from school (staff inservice day I believe) so we had a fun day.  We drove out to the distribution center to pick up some stuff for Mom and Dad (guess what those were LOL, I know you can just order online, but I need them now LOL) then we had some In & Out burger, our first time.  After that, I took them all to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  We had a great time, the entire theater was empty except for us!  It felt like our own personal screening. We could talk loud, laugh really loud and I felt confident when nursing some weirdo wasn't going to see anything, ha ha.  So I snapped a few pics but they didn't come out too well.

See us?  We always sit in the way way back (Joe was at the snack bar)  The one below is Abby with Harley
She's always with Harley.  She's amazing with her, she does diapers people!

Sweets from my sweet

At Activity Days, Abby made me some wonderful Mother's Day chocolates.  She was so proud of her chocolate making skills.  She made chocolate flowers and chocolate covered Oreos.  Yum!  Thanks to Ashleigh, her Activity Days Leader.

On Saturday, April 24th, Abby was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  We are so so proud of her.  Thank you Christine for taking pictures!!  We had great time afterward at our home and enjoyed some yummy food and cake.

Sophie falls asleep anywhere. Ask Amie...she would fall asleep under her tables, behind chairs..well here she is in her sister's car seat.

Ok, pardon the nakie-ness...she was supposed to be getting dressed, but instead this is what I found..

And Harley has been taking lessons!!

I had this post set up to go on Monday...unfortunately, my little doggie passed away today.  I miss my sweet dog.  Unfortunately, parvo took her life before she turned one.

This is my dog Sookie. She is a chihuahua, and a bit ugly, but I love her. She follows me everywhere. She's the pup of my other chihuahua, Coco. I took this picture of her sleeping next to her friend Chloe. I'm just putting it out there to the world, that I love Sookie!!

Cereal sucks....that is all

Here I am torturing Harley with rice cereal LOL this was several weeks ago.  She's grown to like carrots...and whatever else Daddy gives her.  Um...yeah the baby doesn't get chocolate pudding, babe...or egg, or frosting...sigh...

Before the parade passes by....

Joey is in another play with Theater Works. He's doing Beauty and the Beast. He is playing the Egg Man, and has a couple lines. He's been having a blast. They participated in Peoria's Pioneer Days Parade. I grabbed a couple of shots of him marching. Most of the cast wore Beauty and the Beast t-shirts since, at that point, many costumes weren't done yet.

Dye-ing to show you these

The Saturday before Easter was a lazy day, so we decided to dye our eggs.

Joey had a good time, even if he says he's getting too old...

Harley's opinion....

Joey is such a help with Soph

Abby trying to be patient...

Eggs go really fast in my house, before I knew it they ate them all!

Some more...blog stuff

Like the rest of the world, I took the girl's during spring break to the Phoenix Children's Museum. Joey felt he was way to old to go, truthfully he would have been, but for the girls....it was a perfect day!

Sophie picked out an interesting outfit to wear...

The girls put on a puppet show for a little guy...

I think her eyes look really cool in this picture

Over the side of the Noodle Forest.

"Ice Cream" snack

Shopping...(they loved this part)

Then the girls playing chef...

It was such a fun day!

Way back machine...

I spent some time and got a bunch of blogs ready to post.  We are going back several months, but I do believe after several days we will be caught up.  I decided to not publish them all at once, but stretch it out since I take forever and a day to post...below is post 1...enjoy!

So, when Harley turned 3 months old we took her to have her ears pierced. I know this is actually a hot topic among many moms, do you let them choose to do it, do you do it when they are little do you wait until they are in high school. Well, whatever your feelings, over in Camp Cavazos, we do it when they are babies. It's a bit of a cultural thing, and a bit of an it's easier to take care of and they don't remember it. I have a few pics leading up to the event.

I didn't get a good after picture that day but here's one from a couple days later..
