Birdie #3, Rocks, and our special new dolls

what a happenin' place it's been today! we awoke to 2 birdies, and are ending the day with 3 birdies!


so cute, all snuggled in together...


after being in our home for 7 weeks, the landscapers FINALLY came to our home today and installed the trim and rocks. the weather here has stunk, so it has put a big delay in our outside work yet to be done.


still no plants, as those will come next week. sprinkler system will come Thursday, and grass will hopefully come next week too. we did get our mailbox post put up today though....no more daily trips to the post office for us!

I did a blog swap with Tina, from Baby Be Blessed Dolls. She makes these adorable dolls and other items that are personalized with your child's name and a verse for them. We chose "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" (Phil 1:21) for both of the girls...


they both are loving their dolls and have not put them down!

Birdie #2

Birdie #2 hatched! Aren't they so adorably ugly?

Mama and Daddy birds are very close by. and are having a huge fit. We are FINALLY getting our landscaping done today, so there is lots of activity around the nest. I told the landscapers about the nest, so hopefully they will be courteous! :)

flooding and cocoons...

the weather got kind of nasty here tonight. lots and lots of rain...



I actually emailed the above photo to our news station, and it was featured...



after about 10 minutes, the water went back down, and now all is fine. wet, muddy, but fine.

also, our caterpillars have all been moved over into their new "house" and they made themselves cocoons.


In 7-10 days we should have 10 beautiful butterflies to look at!

Avery, the actress...

Avery went to an acting workshop for the last 2 days here in town. They were learning scenes and songs from Aladdin. She LOVED it...this is totally what she digs...

Today, the kids performed what they learned during the workshop for a room full of proud parents and friends!

Here is Avery before they started! Next to her is her super adorable friend Kylie, who is going to be in her class next year! We are SUPER excited as she is from a wonderful christian home (her dad is a pastor too!)!


I think this was during "Arabian Nights" as they were doing some cool moves!


reading some lines...


Performing "One Jump Ahead"...


and more lines...


she did such a great job, and we are so proud of our little actress!

4 sweet little birdies, and we can't wait to meet you! I told hubby that I feel so honored that the mama bird chose our house to keep her babies safe! :)


and, our caterpillars are growing fast!

remember, they just looked like this a couple days ago...

warning...post not for the queasy

Liv's toenail has been looking a little icky the last week or so. it doesn't hurt her, so don't think she's in any pain when you see these photos below...

this is what her nail looked like this morning...





and, this is what it looks like after the nail came off...





pretty nasty, if you ask me. I'm surprised there is no pain going on...

10 new pets, end of swimming lessons...

we'll be having lots of fun watching them grow!

Liv's swimming lessons ended this morning! She moved on to Pre-School Level 2! Great job Liv!

Livie the fish...

swimming lessons continued this week for miss Olivia. she has been her spunky self during them, and i wonder what kind of things she is talking to her teacher about. it's pretty funny watching a 3 1/2 year old...makes me giggle!

here, Liv is supposed to be learning to put her hands up over her head, and then use her feet and push off the side into the pool...


she has the best teacher...so patient with my fire cracker!


back floats, which Liv is not the biggest fan of...


the next day, she wore her goggles, and it was downright hilarious! Something about kids in goggles, but they look so darn silly! i couldn't get over it!


the goggles didn't help her put her face in the water, but it did make for some bigger bubbles, or so i'm told!


how funny is she?


here, she is with a noodle, paddling away! go Livie!


and she hollered over to me to look at what she could do...this is big news for Liv, I guess...


oh, and one night i peeked in on Liv who was watching a night night show in mom and dad's bed, and I found her like this...

gotta love my Livie boo! :)
