Outside Fun

We have been loving the evening weather lately. It is beautiful outside just after we finish up dinner. Here are a few pics from our fun....

PGA Tour 2026

Sweet Pea

Our neighbors have dogs and they like to bark. Well, as much as we dislike it, Ansley loves it. As soon as they start barking, she gets this look on her face and says....DOG. It is priceless.

Preschool Pancake Breakfast

Today was Griffin's Preschool Pancake Breakfast. This is a yearly fundraiser/celebration for the preschool. It was so much fun. It was at a local park and they had all kinds of preschool age appropriate games and yummy breakfast. The local high school students volunteered to facilitate the games.

We took a break from the games to spend a little time at the playground.

If yall remember, Griffin is allergic to eggs. We found this out when he was about 14 months old (just after we moved out here, we had him tested as soon as we moved cause we had suspensions). It was never a severe allergy, just if raw or plain eggs touched his skin a small red rash would develop. He can eat cake/cookies, etc without any problem (lucky for him!). He never had any breathing issues, thank God!

Well, I had him tested again at his 3 year well check. He is still allergic, but it is drastically better! He went from a class 3 to a class 2. And hopefully in another 2 years, he will be completely over it.

The logistics of it:

Egg White : 2009-13.5, 2011-1.10
Egg Yolk: 2009-8.07 , 2011- .50

So, the numbers speak for themselves! Hopefully Griffin can enjoy some scrambled eggs from breakfast in a few years.

18 months!

Today marks Ansley's 18 month bday! It is such a milestone. She is a sweet sweet little girl and makes our family complete.
Some things about Ansley at this age:
-She is a diva....she knows what she wants and when she wants it.
-Her favorite word is "Mine"
-She misses her "Gigi" when he is at school. She looks at his car seat and calls out for him.
-She wears a size 18 or 24 month clothes, size 4 diaper and size 5 shoe
-She is currently getting her last four teeth and they are doing a number on her.
-She is a Mama's girl! If I am around, she wants me to hold her every second or be near me.
-She loves Bubble Guppies
-She loves to be outside and loves to swing and play in the sand box
-Her favorite foods include: any fruit, mac and cheese, pizza, any kind of sandwich, corn, peas, any kind of pasta. She pretty much eats everything, very rarely do we find something she doesn't like.
We love you Ansley Elizabeth.

Fun with Gilly

My room mate from college, Gilly, was in town this week. She is the nanny for a golfer that is from ABQ. She gets to visit every so often, so we try to get to see each other each time. Today we took the kids to Red Light Green Light for some fun and catching up. We had a blast and so did the kids. I totally should have gotten someone to take our picture, but didn't think about it at the time. Oh are the kids.

Note to self....

When you buy cupcakes at Albertsons....they use A LOT of food coloring in their icing. We had to do some serious scrubbing and teeth brushing!

Birthday Snack

Griffin got to celebrate his birthday at school today. Seeing as his is in the summer, he gets to celebrate now. So, I asked him what he wanted to take....he said cookies and chocolate milk. Now, I think I can handle that. They turned out pretty cute. Hope the kiddos liked them!

Griffin's First Day of Preschool

Today was Griffin's first day of preschool!! He has been excited about this day for so long. I am so proud of my little man. He didn't cry when we left (although I did shed a few tears in the car). He seemed to have done really well and said he had fun. The teachers didn't say anything, so that is always a good sign.

Mr. Preschooler!

Me and my big boy

Ansley had to get in on the action too
Playing a little fruit ninja on the ipad before we had to leave

He's so proud!

Once we got to school, the parents took the kids to the back to play outside then all the parents casually left. Ansley had fun playing in the sand with Cole

I can not believe he is already old enough for preschool. I think this will be such an awesome experience for him.

Nana's Babysitting Pics

My mom got some good pictures while she was babysitting the kiddos. Here they are:

Griffin and Nana
Playing baseball

Yay! Mommy and Daddy are home!!

Playing Peek-a-boo

They even got to go to a birthday party while we were gone. It was Cash and Quinn's joint party. The kids had a blast and so did Nana.

Ready for the party

Griff at the sharp shooter

Doing a few exercises

Molly and Ansley, they missed each other! It had been a while since we have seen them.

On the catwalk

Nana brought tons of arts and crafts to do with the kids. They LOVED it!

We got a few additions to family. Poor things didn't last too long. We still have one of the original bunch. They had to go buy a few more cause they didn't even make it a week while Mommy and Daddy were gone.

Thank you SO much for keeping them Mom! They had an awesome time. So awesome, that Griff keeps telling me that he is, "going to fly on an airplane to go to Nana's house and you can stay here with sissy." I am chop liver now!
