Mother Goose

Every Wednesday at 10am we go to the Anthem Outlet Mall for Kids Play. Kids Play if a great FREE program for kids of all ages. Mother Goose reads a story, sings songs, they have a letter of the day. Each week has a new theme like flowers, Day's of the week, bugs....... They have a lottery drawing each week were they give away gift cards to stores at the outlets or DVD.... At the end of the Story time they have a snack. We meet our friends Katie and her daughter Alexis and Kelly and her daughter Cameron. Usually after story time we go to the park and play until lunch time.

On May 21, 2008 Jack was picked to hold up one of the numbers during the counting part of the program. He was soooo excited! And I was so proud of him for raising his hand and volunteering!

Gillian is 11 months Old!!!!!!!!!
Our sweet Baby Girl is growing up so fast! She is now walking! Yes walking! She still crawls more then walking but she is walking more and more each day! She is doing great with the potty training. She poops and pees at least once if nice more each day on the potty! She claps her hand right after she poops or pees in the potty! She gets so excited! She wants to be a big girl. And be like her brother. Yesterday Jack, Gillian and I walked to the mail box which is just around the corner. Gillian didn't want me to hold her she wanted to walk. So I held her hand and we walked to the mail box. She was so proud of herself!


Words she can say:



Mama, Mom, Mommy, Dada, Dad, Daddy, Jack, Hi, Done, Night Night, Nana (Banana) Hey, Ya, No, Yum Yum.....

Here are a few more pictures of sweet Gillian I took on May 27, 2008



Have a wonderful day! Thank's for reading!

Last night she was acting like she was about to poop. So Ryan said go put her on the potty. I ran up stairs and got Jacks old potty seat. Set it on the potty and set her down. She loved it. But nothing happened. So this morning as soon as she woke up I took her I sat her on the potty and she peed!!!!!!!!!!!! I was/am so proud of her! Then after her afternoon nap I sat her on the potty again and she peed AGAIN!!! Oh yeah!!!! Potty training at 10 month!!!!!!!!! Wahooo! What a smart little girl we have! We are so so so sooooooo very proud of her!

Our House and Yard!!!



I thought I would share some pictures of what we have done with the yard and some of the house and garage so far.



Our Messy Garage Before............. AfterOur Beautiful house with both our cars in the garage. Ryan's work truck still has to park on the drive way but that's ok.Formal Dining Room and living room looking from the stairs.Another view! (Sorry there a little dark!)Front Door, Stairs and Living Room view from Dining room.Living Room From Dining room looking toward the Family room.Another view showing the opening in the wall from the Dining room to the Family Room.Ryan brought home a cactus for the yard in March. Here is Jack watering it after Ryan planted it in the front! He loves his cactus!Here is our "Dead Tree" Oh so we thought when we moved in! It has the prettiest purple flowers on it! I'm so excited! Its beautiful even if it leans! Close up of the purple flowers on our tree.You have to love Wal-Mart! I got several flowers for really cheap!!! =) Here they are! I am SO excited about this garden project!!! This is the West side of our house. On the right hand side of this picture is our Kitchen window and our Dining room in the kitchen window. When you look out while doing dishes or eating dinner you just see a lovely grey wall! So I had the idea to plant two Bougainvilleas out side the window's so we would have something pretty to look at!

Getting ready to pant the 1st Bougainvillea.1st one planted! Oh it looks so pretty!
Close up
Just another view! They are small right now only about a foot and a half but they will grow!
