Does this look like a potty to you????
Well it did to Molly a few nights ago.
The girls had been asleep a few hours and I was in the back of the house when I heard one of them walk through the hallway (the bathroom is in the hall).
I go to check... no kid in there.. where did she go???
I look in the dark living room and see a head moving in there.
"Molly what are you doing?"
Just as I said it I knew what she was doing!!!
She had her jammies down and she was sitting on the blankets and pillows!!
As I hurry in there I can hear pee hitting the floor!!
I pull her off...
"Molly!! You're not in the bathroom!"
"Sorry" she replies in a very sleepy voice.
(Of course I'm worried about the basket she is peeing all over. Luckily it was protected by the blankets)
I couldn't stop laughing even as I cleaned up the mess and all the next day when I had a mountain of laundry to wash.
She didn't even remember it the next morning.

Molly Got Her Glasses

Molly got her glasses last Thursday.
Isn't she cute?
I think it will take me a while to get use to seeing her with them.
When we left the office she stood at the top of the steps and said "the steps are tippy".

I am so proud of her. She has put them on and not taken them off.
I feel bad because obviously she can see a lot better or she would complain. She puts them on first thing in the morning too.
We have been back a few times for adjustments already.
She is proud of them!

The High Seas


@ St Sebastian Church

All last week the girls attended VBS at St. Sebastian Church.

They really seemed to enjoy it this year.

On Sunday morning they had a program.

The kids did a great job.

They tie dyed their shirts.

You think she's bored?

After mass some of the teachers

commented on them. Last year they were quiet

and subdues. Not this year.

I guess they couldn't shut Lindy up!

(I love it)

Everyone loves these girls.

We are SO blessed!!

First Eye Exam's

So, for kindergarten the girls
have to have several exams. First up is the
eye doctor. I have learned
from the past that it is sometimes better
to take the girls separately to the doctor.
You see, they squabble over who will gets to go
first. then when it is time to actually GO first
they decide that neither wants to go first.
Since the eye doc was here in town
I had appointments for each of them.
Molly went first last Friday.
Lindy stayed home with daddy.
You would have thought we were going to
be gone a week the way they acted.
Lots of hugging & kissing between them.
(way too cute)
And Molly even got a picture of herself
for Lindy to hold while we were gone.
(even cuter)
Lindy followed us to the car for one last hug.
On the way there Molly said she was going first so
she could tell Lindy all about it.
"So she won't be scared mom"
(gotta love that one)
She enjoyed the toys in the waiting room
until it was her turn.

She did really well here.

But here is where the exam went south!
Yep, she couldn't see out her left eye too well.
I think it was her left eye!!
Could have been her right... I was so floored
that she wasn't seeing to good that I
could have that wrong.

With some adjusting she could see
well out of this thing.
"Nothing that a pair of glasses won't fix"
I had no clue that she would need glasses!
She pick out a cute pair
of pink Disney frames.
That evening I heard the girls
talking about the glasses. Molly
was asking God to
"let Lindy get glasses too"
Still waiting for them to get in.

Today was Lindy's turn.
Again we went through the hugging & kissing.
And the photo deal.
But she didn't play to much with the toys
that Molly thought was awesome.

Here we go.
I think I was more nervous that she was!
She did good with this test.

She liked the
"elevator chair"
And I was very pleased that she
was passing the test very well.

Doc:"look at the airplane on the wall"
as he examined her eye with a flashlight,
moving across her eye.
Lindy: "awe, I can't see the airplane cause you are in the way"
So, she passed!
I told her she didn't need glasses
cause the dentist has already called
dibs on her mouth!!

Cheer Clinic

Last week the girls went to a
cheer clinic at the high school.
Of course they didn't want to go but
had a good time.

Learning a dance.

Doing some tumbling.


the closing performance

showing off their medals.

(they are in there somewhere!)

I don't particularly want them to like cheer leading. I'd rather they play a sport or an instrument. But I thought they would like it. It also gets them into groups and making new friends.

Now we are on to VBS!

Honey, Will You Hang Out The Laundry?

Already late for an appointment I say
"Hon, will you hang out the clothes?"

It's a good thing they were his nasty work clothes.

Have you ever seen such a sight?
Do you think men do this sort of thing on purpose so it doesn't become a chore for them? Dave honestly didn't see a problem with his technique. His response was: "they're dry ain't they?" Can't argue with that. :)

Relay For Life

We always try to get to the Relay or Life
every year. This event means a lot to my mother in law.
She is a survivor (I forget how many years).
And David's dad lost his battle with
cancer several years ago. As the survivors started
the relay with the first lap, Dave & I were taken aback
by how many people we knew.
Cancer effects everyone in this country one
way or another.

Lindy, David, Dee & Molly

Lindy, Molly their friend Erica participated in
the kids lap.

The luminary lighting is my personal
favorite of the night.

This year we decorated a few.

This bag is for my cousin Norma.
She is surviving breast cancer.
Unfortunately we could not stay for the lighting this year.
But it awesome seeing all those bags lining the track.

Look What's New- Cake Balls

Cake Balls
So, I've been wondering what I can do with my cake scraps. A friend of mine introduced me to a blog. I just love all this gal does. You should check it out here.

Of course I'm not as talented as baker*lla, but I was pleased with the results I got. I shared them with my quilting club friends and everyone seemed to like them too. So, I think I will add them to the list of goodies I offer for parties and such.

Memorial Holiday 2010

David actually got to take the Holiday off as scheduled. He has been working such long hours lately. We really was looking forward to him being home.
Friday evening we told the girls we were going on a adventure on Saturday. They were almost too excited to go to bed. After a lot of questions I told them we were going to Cave In Rock. Well they had no clue and wanted to know all about it. I told them it was a surprise and they could just think about it. So Molly decided that she needed to think like a rock!!
So after cake deliveries were done the next morning we set out on our adventure. Of course we had the typical questions like"is it long" from Lindy.
As we got closer to the hills Molly would comment about the "beautiful view".
We started our day eating at the Fish House Restaurant in Elizabethtown. We love this place. The best fish ever! Then we headed to Cave In Rock. The girls fell asleep on the way there. I wondered what sort of mood they'd be in when we woke them.

But they were ready and excited to see what the big fuss was about. It was a beautiful day. Just a tad hot for me, but we sat out walking around the park. We made our way down toward the river and the girls were loving all the rocks and steps along the bank.

They were anxious to walk into the cave. It was slippery so Dave took them in where you can look up and see the light. They really liked the cave.

Sitting along the rocks.

I love this picture.

Then we headed to Pounds Hollow.
I remember going here when I was a kid not much older than they are.
There is a beach area and several picnic places.

It being such a hot day I thought we could wade in the water to cool off.

The girls would have loved to build a sand castle. But I didn't want them in the sand.

But they had a great time looking for "she shells"

Good thing I had a change of clothes int he car. Next time we will pack a swimsuit!

It was a really good drive. We are hoping for another
adventure real soon.
On Monday my family fixed fish at my parents house.
Dave took a few bikes to putter around on. I can't believe my dad rode one.

Molly & Lindy loved helping with the fish.
