Summer Time

There is no doubt that we are ready for summer!! Fortunately it will officially start on June 8th for me. My last day of school is June 7th. Last weekend I put the girls in their swimsuit after church, so they could check out their pool.

The water was a bit cold, so they didn't stay in for too long. We will give it a try again on a warmer day.

Yesterday I made homemade Popsicles for the girls. They were easy to make and much heal other than the sugar loaded store brands. They were definitely a hit!! The girls still need to figure out how to hold the Popsicle. They kept trying to hold the actual Popsicle instead of the stick.

In 9 days this is how I will get to spend the next 2 1/2 months withy sweet girls. I cannot wait to spend lazy summer days with them.

My heart is absolutely heart broken for all of the victims in Oklahoma. When a tornado is approaching I get a lot of anxiety. I cannot even imagine how all of the children and teachers in the two schools felt, as well as the residents in Moore. Ever since having my twins, I have met some pretty amazing mommy's through the blog world. Heather is a fellow twin mom. On Monday, Heather took 1 year old twins into the storm shelter as the tornado came barreling through. When she emerged from her storm shelter she discovered her home was completely destroyed. Unfortunately this is not the first time she has experienced such a catastrophe. On May 3rd, 1999 she and her husband lost their home as well. I cannot even imagine how they feel right now. A few amazing bloggers set up a Paypal account for donations for the Mills family. You can go to this PayPal link to help this sweet family out. I know there are many other charities collecting donations, but this would go directly to the Mills family. They need all the help they can get as they try to rebuild their lives.

Lets Celebrate

Tuesday evening we went to Chuy's, our favorite Mexican restaurant, to celebrate our babysitters birthday. We absolutely love Kayla and feel so blessed to have her in our life. She is extremely caring, nurturing, and sweet to Avery and Harper. They absolutely adore her. So glad they have such an amazing caretaker each day. Makes it a little easier for me to go to work everyday!

Avery didn't want to take off her shades during dinner. If you might remember, she loves to wear accessories. Such a silly girl!

Harper is just like her momma, she loves to pick up and clean after others. She spent a few minutes wiping off the table after dinner.

Hopefiilly we will celebrate many more birthdays with Kayla. We love you, Kayla!
