Surprise Beth!

I planned a fun day away for my girlfriend Beth as a baby shower. We went shopping at Tai Pan, ate at Cheesecake Factory, and saw the movie When in Rome. I flew her sister out and her mom came too. We went with a few friends and had a blast!

School Celebrity Dance!

Our school hosted a family "Celebrity" dance. Everyone could dress up like celebrity's and come and dance. The girls were really excited for this. They dug through their dress up clothes and found some sparkly outfits. They had a blast. Cassidy really shook it out on the dance floor. We don't call her dancing monkey for no reason.

Under Water!

Our park down the street from our house was so full of water that the 5 foot fence on the right was nearly covered with water. On the left is this giant dirt hill the kids love to climb and play on. Now it looks like a bump.
The water was so high that the water was half way up the baseball fence. If you see at the top of the picture people started rafting in the park. (Red boat)

All the fields in our town are water run offs. So they slope down from this grass hill about 6 or 7 feet. This is a picture of the middle of the park. As you can see the water fountain is barely above water. It rained heavily for days and the water collected in the park. It was a crazy site!!!

I Made It My Shelf!

I was cleaning out our playroom one day and decided that our closet needed to be more effective. We have tons of games on the top shelves, but they are filled to the brim. We have costumes hanging, but decided that we could consolidate them all to one side of the closet. So what we needed were a couple small shelves to store more stuff. I looked at the top shelf and told Darren that we could probably just make some like the ones above. He said it would be too hard. (Darren has many talents, but handyman is not one) So I said I was going to make them. After cutting, nailing, painting a few pieces of wood ta-da. My 2 little shelves that I'm ever so proud of!

Where Are Her Teeth?

We are still waiting for Liberty to cut her teeth. She has six teeth on the verge of breaking through, but holding out. What 12 month old has no teeth? I'm still breaking her food up trying to keep her from choking. Every day I check for them. When I say "teethies" she says ahhh and I look. We've got that down to a routine.

Little Buddies!

With Malachi and Naomi in school Cassidy and Liberty have a little more time together alone. It's really cute how they are starting to interact with one another. Libby likes to do her own thing, but still loves to hang with her sister Cass.

The Saga Continues...

Cassidy is my child that loves to get into things. Not only does she get into things, but she hides when she's doing it. So when she's quiet I know it's panic mode and time to search the "popular" hiding spots. We usually find her covered in lotion, polish, makeup, bag balm, mentholatum, baby powder... This time it was desitin. All over her hands and the bottoms of her feet. Trying to keep as calm as I could I said "Uhhh I'm going to kill you." She said "Don't kill me mommy!" Needless to say I will never use that phrase again.

I Love Her Being One!

What a fun little girl Liberty is. She is really starting to become a little person. She plays with all sorts of different things. Knows how to climb on her little bike, lays down to drink her bottle wherever and is up and running again. Gotta love it.

2 Sister Clarkes!

We were eating dinner and Malachi states that he doesn't know who he's going to marry when he grows up. Naomi chimes in that she knows. Malachi said, "I know you're going to marry Rocky, but your last name won't be Drago anymore." (Rocky Clarke is Naomi's little buddy) Naomi replies "I know it will be Clarke then there will be 2 sister Clarkes." (Rocky's mom and her) How cute!

Star Wars Lives On!

Every once in a while my kids will get the Star Wars itch and start playing it. They busted out the dress up and even got Liberty to participate. Her and Cassi looked so funny with the big masks on.
