Addison's Pledge of Allegience

Addison has been learning the Pledge of Allegiance at pre-school these past two weeks and she's doing a great job! She actually recites it on her own throughout the day, but for the video, she wanted me to help her out a little!

And of course, she was watching herself in the video so she had to put a little Addi spin on it!

Pre-School Time

Addison started 3 year old pre-school on Monday!
She will be going 3 mornings a week!
She was so excited to wear her Disney Princess backpack!
So when it came time to take our 1st day of school picture, 
she was so full of energy and poses!

But I finally got her to calm down enough to take a nice picture!
She was a little shy when we first got there (I know what you are thinking.. Addison? Shy?!)  But they start their mornings in the playroom, so as soon as she saw a bunch of undressed babies next to containers full of clothing, she was good to go.... and so was I!   "Bye Mom!"

All I Want for Christmas...

Trevor went up to brush his teeth this morning before heading to school... and he came back downstairs and walked up to me very calmly and said, "Mom, look what just happened!"
I think he was more excited to show his teacher he lost his tooth then he was me!  He was one happy little boy heading to school this morning!

First Day of School 2011!

The kids started school this week on Tuesday, right after Labor Day! I think everyone was more then ready to head back to school (espeically me) to see their friends!  

I had to chase McKenzie to the door with the camera, and beg her to smile for one little first day of school photo! Can you believe she is starting 8th grade!!!!! She was out the door by 7:30am (and had been up getting GLAM-ified since 6:00am) Don't stare at her neon pink shoes too long.. you'll go blind!
 Trevor, on the other hand, was more than cooperative for his first day of school picture!  He was all smiles (minus his one little tooth).  My little Superman ready for 1st grade!
Look how much they've changed just in one year! 
This was LAST YEAR'S first day of school. You can check that blog post out HERE.
Now.. you MUST scroll back up and compare Trevor's height compared to the grooves in the door! It's incredible how much taller he has gotten!

Okay, back to the present.... now, you know Addison does not like to be left out of the spotlight (shirt or no shirt)... hopefully that changes in the future! She will start 3 year old preschool next week!  Awww.
 Then there was my little rockstar who refused to join in on the photo above, but then ran over to pose for his solo picture right after! What a little rockstar, huh? Check out that smile!
Next week it will just be Tyler and me! Wow, whatever will we do? I'm sure we'll figure something out!

Birthday Bash

Since we were on vacation during Tyler's 2nd birthday and had just gotten back from vacation the week of Trevor's 7th birthday, we decided to throw one big party for both of them!

Trevor wanted to go to Funland in Frederickburg. And he wanted a Scooby Doo cake:
And as crazy as it was when we all headed out the door, I forgot the camera, so thank goodness for Nick's iPhone!  I also forgot the special number candles that I had conveniently sitting next to the cake so that I wouldn't forget them... so thank you Wal-Mart for being right next door! And thank you Nick for going to pick another set up!
Tyler was terrified of the candle, "HOT", so he stayed clear back from it and attempted to spit blow it out from a distance.

 Me Kenzie & Grace
 After pizza & cake, the kids were let loose to play all over Funland!

Our new Addition to the family...

We picked up our new puppy on our way home from Iowa in the "RB".... the kids were so excited to see her again! Not sure what Tyler is doing... but his face cracks me up!
 Nick and I went to get her while the kids waited patiently in the RV.....

Meet Lilly!  She's an English Bulldog!  She was born on June 3, 2011.
 Tyler's impression of Lilly....
 We still had 90 minutes left to get home, so after about an hour of loving on their new puppy, we all nestled in for a nap.
 Her favorite spot to nap is right on the register where it's nice and cool!
