Funny Girl

She cracks me up! Look at her with her purse, baby, and blackberry. Oh, don't forget the jellys! She wanted to wear a hat like daddy to keep her hair out of her face.
The girl won't sit still long enough for me to snap her "21 month" pic.

She was more sedentary at 20 months! And freakin' cute!

Dallas Arboretum

We took a quick trip to Dallas a couple of weeks ago to see Matt's family. We spent the day at the Dallas Arboretum and it was beautiful!
They had some cute little western houses, post office, church, etc. set up for kids to play in. Sophie got a kick out of it. She also enjoyed her pinwheel!

The tulips were going crazy. These might be my favorite!

After and Before

This blogger thing really drives me crazy sometimes. Part of the reason I'm just now posting things is that I tried a few weeks ago and it wouldn't load any pictures. Then the next time I tried it only loaded 2 of the 8 I tried. So, I got frustrated and gave up. Now I'm working on this post and my pictures are loaded in reverse order of what they have always done. AAHHH. So, here is our new kitchen!
We hadn't sealed the grout/tile yet, which made it a little darker and shiney-er(?). The grey is almost black now from the seal.
We did the demolition...I guess I should say Matt did it and I helped! We also laid all the tile - we're pretty handy.
And here is the before. When we moved in there was wallpaper on the kitchen walls. It was a bunch of cacti and horrible. So I picked this burnt orange color to match the tile. Matt said it burnt his cornea, so he begged me to change it. I had never noticed it being so horrible until I see it next to the new color!

And I'm sure Matt would appreciate me telling you all that there are no more "cocks" in the kitchen. He hates do my brother-in-laws!

Random January Happenings

Here are some pictures of January. I'm trying to catch up! Sophie carrying her baby in her sling. Please note diaper bag as well.
Daddy's gloves go on your feet...didn't you know??!

Picnic in the living room with Caleb.
She walks around and says, "eeerrrrrrrssssssss" in this really screechy voice. Translation: "Where is Sophie?" I think she gets stuck on the "ere" of Where and "is".

Helping Mommy with the trash. She is such a good little helper!

LATE!! But it's something...right??!

Well, Christmas has come and gone, along with New Year's, MLK, President's Day, Valentine's Day...
And I'm just now getting around to posting pictures. I'm such a slacker. So, brace yourself. There are a lot of pictures. And, of course they are in no order - sometimes I get so frustrated with the blogger thing - it won't let me upload more than 5 at a time and it's in backwards order and blah, blah, blah. So, you see my frustration and why I sometimes protest and wait days (or months) to blog??
Here is the how Christmas ended - Sophie wearing a new hoodie, talking on her phone and pushing Baby in his/her stroller.Matt's family came for a couple of days after Christmas. Sophie got a new, noisy phone, among other fun things. Like, chocolate!

In case you forgot, it snowed a bajillion inches in Oklahoma on Christmas Eve. It stayed on our yard for about 2 weeks!

These pictures are from Clinton with my dad's family.
She loves the camera

and holding babies.
These are from Christmas Day at my parent's house. Soph got a "real-life"baby. It cries and eats and sucks a pacifier. Thank Goodness it doesn't poop.

new shoes!

Sophie helped me decorate a Christmas tree to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

"Helping" me decorate gingerbread cookies
We had our friends Lauren and Min-Jung over for a "friend Christmas". They are getting their Masters at OCU. They had a lot of fun opening gifts from some of our friends.
