Meet the Teacher

Olivia met her first grade teacher tonight and saw her new classroom.  She is beyond excited about school starting which is music to this mama's ears!  She couldn't believe that she had her own desk that opened.  Olivia wanted to start tomorrow (but, she has to wait until Tuesday.) 



Two of her friends from kindergarten are in her class as well as her bus partner.  I feel so much more at ease about school starting as I know Olivia will do wonderfully!  So proud of her!

More Daisy

Meet Daisy

Olivia recently began asking for a dog.  She wanted a chihuahua with long ears that she could name Daisy.  I had my own long list of necessary traits like must not be a puppy, be potty trained and from a rescue.  On a whim, I visited the humane society and found our Daisy.  


She is an extremely gentle and affectionate 2 year old dog. . .a  potty trained chihuahua with big ears. 



She is so good with the girls, which I'm surprised at with such a small breed.  Some have a reputation for not being good with small children.  Daisy is a very gentle soul who I believe is meant for our family.   I have yet to even hear her bark.  


I have never seen Olivia so in love.  Every hour or so, she says," I can't believe we have a dog!" She used her tooth fairy money to buy her a toy at the pet store.


So, that's our Daisy.  What a sweetie!!

Good Bye For Now

After almost seven years and close to 2500 posts, I've decided to stop blogging.  Well, I'm sure I'll update big events like birthdays, first days of school, etc.  But, I'm no longer going to blog about the day to day events in our lives.  It's a good thing.  It means our life has become rather boring and normal. And as Olivia gets older, I doubt she would appreciate all the details of her life being shared and I have to think about that.  I've decided to write in a personal journal as my outlet because writing has been rather therapeutic to me over the years.  So, for now, I leave you with a big THANK YOU for checking in on us and sharing in our joys. It has meant so much to me.

Kansas City Vacation 2014



Great Wolf Lodge











American Girl Store: Abigail picked out her very own Bitty Baby and named her Mimi.  Mimi will be very loved as Abigail is quite the little mother. Olivia got some new clothes and accessories for her Bitty Baby, Aly.  



Shopping and dining at Legends




Olivia is quite the skee ball player (just like her mama was. LOL!) 


It was a great little vacation.  Abigail wanted nothing to do with the water park, but did pretty good overall.  Both girls seemed to have a really good time.
