She has her own idea....

Silly kid!

I heart chalk!

This weeks theme over at I Heart Faces is "Fun with Chalk!" We play with chalk a lot.  I have tons of pictures where the girls are covered in chalk, but this one is especially sweet for me! Reagan was tracing Bailey's hands and they were just enjoying each other's company.  It's these moments that I cherish and pray for them to just stay little.

On Labor Day we had a little outing. It was also gorgeous outside! Perfect weather. So, we decided to do something we had never done before:
We took the girls miniature golfing.  
Oh. My. Word. They were so cute! We were a little worried that they wouldn't know what to do and it would take us 3 hours to get through the course, but that wasn't the case at all.  

Reagan picked it up really quickly.  

Bailey and Skylar both had their "own" styles.  Skylar was a bit of a Happy Gilmore.  She had an unorthodox style but still managed to get the ball into the cup each time!

Look carefully at the picture above and you can see Skylar with the club....above her head! 

I should have used this picture of Brian for the smirking contest.  :) Each time Skylar would finish her turn, she would hand her club to Brian.  Just call him the Daddy Caddy!

All in all, they had a BLAST.  And we were done in 20 minutes.

friday funnies

We've had my 85 year old nana with alzheimers staying with us this week so some of our funnies are a bit more "adult." :) Of course the girls have not disappointed this week! Enjoy!

One morning nana was getting dressed and walked from her bedroom to the just her underwear.  That was funny enough in and of itself, but what was even funnier was what Brian said when I told him about it.  I texted him and said "It's good you're not home.  Nana's walking around naked." He responded, "Well, she did see Bailey walking around our house naked last night. When in Rome..."
After dropping Reagan off at school one morning we were driving home and Skylar asked, "How do trees go potty?" I responded, "They don't." Puzzled, she asked, "Then why does that one have toilet paper in it?"
Reagan came to me on Wednesday and said, "I have three reasons why you should do my laundry tomorrow...." Oh sweet little analytical one.  The apple does not fall far from the tree.
Skylar and Bailey were watching "My Friends Tigger and Pooh" one morning and Skylar said, "I think I know why his name is Pooh! He likes to eat all the time.  And everyone knows that when you eat, you....poo."  :)
The girls call my grandmother, "Nana Great."  Except for Bailey. She calls her "Nana Grape" and sometimes "Mama Grape."
Reagan was practicing piano.  Nana and I were sitting and listening to her.  In between songs, Nana said, "Some day you're going to have a pianist." Later Reagan asked, "Why did Nana say that some day you will have a penis?" :D I didn't even know she knew that word!!

I spent over an hour looking for a "smirking" photo, only to realize that I just missed the cutoff for the IHeartFaces challenge.  Bummer! But I'm going to post it here anyway.  It's a cute shot and worthy of sharing.  Enjoy!

Friday Funnies

Welcome to Friday Funnies!!!

Bailey found two brushes in my bathroom and held up the blue one.
"This one your faygrit?"
"Yes, Bailey, that one's my favorite."
"NOOOO, your FAYgrit!"
"Yes, my favorite."
"Yes, it's my faygrit."
"SEE? I told you."
Conversation from the backseat:
Me: We're going to the bank.
Skylar: The bink?
Bailey: No! Pink.
Skylar: The pank?
Bailey: No, the pancake.
Me: No, the BANK.
Skylar: They have pancakes at the bank?
Skylar: Mommy, when I'm old like you, will I have sharp hair on my legs too?
(Don't get me started on how many things are wrong with that statement).
Skylar: MOMMY! Bailey's wearing panties that say Sunday on them!
Me: Yes.  Why is that a problem?
Skylar: Because it's Thursday.
I took Skylar to the store with me and wiped down the cart with a antibacterial wipe.  She asked why I wiped the cart and I told her it was because I cared about her and didn't want her to get sick.  Her eyes got huge and she said, "Daddy doesn't wipe the cart! He doesn't care about me!"
Occasionally when I get frustrated, I will end my request with "for the love."  I.e. "Bailey, goodness gracious! Can you please stop banging that stick on the bookshelf, for the love?!" Sooooo, the other day I said, "Bailey, please stop screaming." And she replied, "for the love?" :D

Have a great weekend all!

About me!

I was tagged by Liz to answer eight questions about myself, so here ya go:

1. Where were you born?
I was born in San Diego, CA and lived there for most of my life.  It's one of my favorite cities in the US.

2. What is your idea of the perfect job/ If you could do anything, what would you choose?
I am actually DOING my perfect/ideal job.  I always knew I wanted to be a mom and being home with my girls is a dream for me.  If I had to choose a PAYING job, I would say a photographer.  Or a dancer (cause they are always in shape). 

3. What is your favorite food?
It's hard to choose an absolute favorite for me.  I love pasta, and most mexican food (especially fish tacos), but also love a great burger. :) I guess I'm just easy to please when it comes to food!

4. If you had a day all to yourself, what would you do?
Shop. And then take a nap.  

5. What is your favorite restaurant?
I love Islands Restaurant!
And Flemings.  

6. What is your least favorite chore?
Hmmm, it's a close call between loading/unloading the dishwasher (because it seems never-ending), and scrubbing the bathrooms.

7. What is your favorite movie of all time?
I'm a chick flick junkie.  I can't pick just one.  I love "When Harry Met Sally", "Sleepless in Seattle", "You've got Mail", "Father of the Bride" (I and II), "Anne of Green Gables",  you get the idea....

8. What is your happiest childhood memory?
The smell of Lemon Pledge takes me back to Saturday mornings when I was growing up.  My mom would be cleaning, listening to KC and the Sunshine band (or something similar), and I would "help." She always made a big breakfast on Saturdays, and then we would watch Saturday morning cartoons.  
I also have great memories of traveling in an RV with my family!

If you have a few moments and want to play along, go ahead and answer the same eight questions! I'd love to read more about ya!

Finding Beauty

I love how my girls can find beauty in little things.  They can see a butterfly from 300 yards away.  They also think the trail that a snail leaves behind is "so pretty." :D

The other night, Reagan said, "Mom, come quick!" I ran into her room and she pointed out what she called "The most beautiful sunset ever." To be honest, I couldn't see a sunset at all.  She had to point out the reflection in the car window.

Friday Funnies

Who needs cable when you have kids?! Especially kids that say funny stuff!
The girls seemed super funny this week, or maybe it was just that I remembered to write them all down.  Either way, enjoy!!

Bailey: Mommy this strawberry milk tastes funny.
Me: That's because it's chocolate milk.
Bailey: Oh, then it's yummy!
Skylar: Mommy, when I have a baby, I want to name her Sarah.  I used to want to name a baby Peppermint but then I realized that wasn't a very good name.
Walking to school one morning and it started to drizzle a bit.
Skylar said, "It's starting to rain!"
I replied, "It's ok, it's just a little drizzle."
Skylar said, "But Daddy said it wasn't going to rain!"
Reagan replied, "Skylar, I hate to burst your bubble, but Daddy is NOT a weatherman!"
Bailey was sitting next to me on the couch and tooted. I said, "What was that?!" She replied, "There's a monster in my butt!"
Walking to school again, we heard an ambulance.
Bailey: That's a ambrijan
Skylar: Bay, it's AM-BLI-ANCE
A little girl walked up to Reagan at school and said, "What are you going to be for Halloween?" Reagan said, "I'm not sure yet."  The little girl said, "I'm going to be Jason or Freddy Kreuger!" (she has much older brothers).  Then she walked away.  Reagan turned to me and said, "Who are Jason and Jenny Cooper?" :D
Bailey was playing with a fairy wand and touching it to things in the family room.  She would say "Abba Dabba" and turn objects into other things.  She touched it to the fan and said, "Abba Dabba, you're a elephant." Then she came over and touched the wand to my head.  I said, "What are you making me?" And she said, "I'm making you blonde...."  (oh, if it were only that easy)!

Can't wait to hear about all the funnies at your house this week!

Friday Funnies

I'm taking a break from linky (cause it's being stinky today), but that doesn't mean I can't share my own funnies with ya! And if you want, go ahead and share some funnies in the comments.

1. While driving, Skylar said, "That cloud looks like a purple dragon eating a sandwich!" (I love her imagination).  Reagan said, "Skylar, have you EVER seen a purple dragon eating a sandwich?" She replied, "Uh huh....right there in the sky."

2.  I asked Skylar and Bailey if they wanted a roast beef sandwich for lunch (since that what I was making for myself).  They both said, "Ew! No! That's gross!" So I made a sandwich for myself and told them I would make them something else after I finished.  So, of course when I sat down they both wanted a bite to "try it." Both of them said, "Oh, I like it! Can I have my own?" And there went my sandwich....

3.  Reagan has officially discovered Hannah Montana.  But not because her friends like her, but because she saw that Miley has a horse.  Go figure.  Now we can sing the theme song like the best of them!

4.  My friend Rachel doesn't blog so she gave me permission to share this one: Her boys are 7 and 4.  The 7 year old and a female buddy were talking about having to go potty.  The 7 year old told the girl, "Just go in the woods." She replied "I can't do that. I don't have one of those." The 4 year old piped up, "I have 52!" Rachel said, "Obviously he had no idea what they were talking about, but wanted to participate." ;D
