Oh wow....

Ok, I know I at least posted a warning about the PCS and craziness that would ensue...but wow. Two months to catch up on...and a lot of that didn't even get a picture!! I'm going to really work on it in the next bit, I'm without adult company for the first time in a few months...thankfully lots of free time = lots of blogging time! I'm also making sure that I'm taking pictures every day again. Life is working it's way into our new normal, let's see how fast I adjust!!

Another little posting break

Alrighty--out PCS is upon us! So right now, I don't have access to my regular computer to upload all my pictures. I'm taking them, I promise! In a few weeks I'll catch up and then we'll have another little break til I can post again. Depends on how long we're in hotels that we're not asleep! Then of course we'll have to get the internet set up in our new house, and then, once we're settled, we'll be back in our groove!!!

Day 138

May 25, 2011

"Our" baby birdies are getting so big!!! Mark said that this morning, one of them was flying with the parents!!!! I can only tell them from the parents by their beaks--babies beaks are yellow and parents beaks are dark.

Day 137

May 24, 2011

Ok. Last "bad me" day...I'll stop forgetting the camera in my purse!

Day 136

May 23, 2011

Giving puppy lovins.

Her very last time at Kindermusik with Ms. Diane. We're sad!!

Last blanket ride at Kindermusik...the only thing she really loved about the class today since she was still getting over being sick.

Day 135

May 22, 2011

Sweet sick girl sleeping on the couch while Mommy was waiting on the nurse to call back to find out if we needed to head to the ER. We went, but had a misdiagnosis from the ER doc (one we've dealt with before and don't like--but at 3am, you're not super picky) but thankfully everything cleared up on it's own during the day!

Day 134

May 21, 2011

Hey, the world didn't end!!

Sick Munchkin didn't want much to do with Daddy...

Day 133

May 20, 2011

Today's another bad day....sorry! Today started Munchkin's sick weekend...fun times in our house!

Day 132

May 19, 2011

Munchkin whining about something...

I told Munchkin to put her trash can back in her room. She did. Technically, it's in her room. I guess I should be more specific with my instructions!

Day 131

May 18, 2011

Remember I said a few days missing? Today's one.

Day 130

May 17, 2011

1st time to have milk in her sippy cup! Not a huge fan, but drank it!

Marble Slab happened to have Daddy's favorite--Honey. Munchkin LOVED it and had no problem getting her own bites!

Day 129

May 16, 2011

Bad me...I've got quite a few days I missed....trust me, nothing fun happened :)

Day 128

May 15, 2011

Letting the comforter dry outside! Definitely something I'll miss about being in the South..being able to 'line' dry clothes!

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Day 127

May 14, 2011

Munchkin ready to drive!!!

"Birdie!" made this little baby bird pipe right up! They have grown so much in the past few days!!!

Munchkin got to ride a pony for the first time today!! His name was Coco and he was a very sweet little pony. Munchkin loved it so much she wanted to go again--and since we were there when they first got there, we only had to wait for two people (and there were 3 horses/ponies) to go and she got a second ride!!

Day 126

May 13, 2011

"Hey Mom, can I help you find coupons?" Unfortunately, there weren't any good ones that we'd use in there--but she sure enjoyed looking through the magazine!

Day 125

May 12, 2011

Temper tantrum!!! I can't even remember what she got so upset about but she just threw her fit right on the hard floor! Silly girl.

Day 124

May 11, 2011

I about cried...but Munchkin can actually wear her shirt from deployment (09-10)! It was one of the last ones left, so we had to take whatever size they had--turns out to be a Youth M (10-12)! It's a floor length dress, but she can walk in it! A fabulous nightgown for now!

Awww, which is exactly what Munchkin says when she gives Lightning (or anyone else!) hugs and kisses!

Day 123

May 10, 2011

Spaghetti dinner!! Munchkin's favorite!

Day 122

May 9, 2011

Something I like about being in a small town in the south...seeing guys in jail stripes working outside (mostly mowing public areas) is a regular thing!

3 little baby swallows in the nest!! They were begging Daddy for more food!

Day 121

May 8, 2011--Happy Mother's Day!

Not the best picture--and she wasn't upset, just screaming to make noise. BUT, she's the reason I get to hear "Happy Mother's Day!" and I'm so proud to be her Mommy! (Her outfit was very Mom-centric--the I <3 Mom onesie, coordinating shorts with ruffles on the bum, and I <3 Mom socks!!!)

Day 120

May 7, 2011

Munchkin LOVES helping with the dishwasher! She gets upset when she gets to it after we've already put all the silverware away (her self appointed job--she hands them to us to put in the drawer).

Sweet Lightning, he's such a great dog and he's SO tolerant of Munchkin and her shenanigans!

Day 119

May 6, 2011

Grumpy Munchkin.

Putting Mommy's purse away after dragging it across everywhere!

She saw a fly on the window and went to get the fly swatter! That's my smart girl!!

Day 118

May 5, 2011

When we were at the Commissary, I saw the Spring Funfetti cake mix. Not exactly "Cinco de Mayo"-ish, but it's yummy!!!

Day 117

May 4, 2011

Mark got Munchkin hooked on Honey Mustard Pretzels! She LOVES them!!!

Day 116

May 3, 2011

Munchkin being a super silly girl--just another normal day in our house!!

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Day 115

May 2, 2011

Bad 365'er...no pictures today. It was our friend's moving day so most of my day was spent with them getting ready to head out. We also had the first of May's Kindermusik classes--Munchkin of course had a blast!

The curriculum we used--which happens to be the curriculum from our very first Kindermusik class!

Day 114

May 1, 2011

Holy cow it's May!!!

We did family pictures at Auntie Em's house (the weather was HORRIBLE, so our original outdoor plans were a no-go) and went to Texas Roadhouse for lunch afterward. I got to sit next to my nephew Mamu. I actually got kisses from him!!! (A VERY rare treat!) He was being silly while singing "Where is Thumbkin?" and put a peanut shell on his thumb. I love that little boy!!

Day 113

April 30, 2011

Breakfast at IHOP...putting crayons in straws!

We found Mark's Mickey ears from when he visited Disney World when he was 5!

We actually had a date night (Thanks, MG!). We went to Olive Garden and then to Dave & Busters! We ended up winning 1106 tickets (most of them came from this game!) We got two acrylic cups and a pack of Fun Dip--with 50 left over and them more found in Mark's pocket. All in all, a great night!

Day 112

April 29, 2011

Granddaddy & Munchkin walking around the pond at the park.

Munchkin got to ride in Red Hot--MG's beetle--for the first time. No, the top didn't stay down, but it sure made it a lot easier to get the seat in and get her buckled in it!

MG took us to Bruster's for ice cream!! Munchkin got a free baby cone, we chose strawberry and she ate most of it, wore the rest, and even ate her cone!!!

Day 111

April 28, 2011

Munchkin LOVES to "drive" with Daddy!

Day 110

April 27, 2011

On the way to Texas!

Pretty sunset driving through Louisiana.

Day 109

April 26, 2011

Munchkin decided to share her snack with Lightning. He has such a hard life!

Day 108

April 25, 2011

Munchkin's first time bowling!! She LOVED it!! (and seriously, only toddlers can make bowling shoes cute!!)

Let it be known: I WON!

Munchkin and her little buddy loving on each other!

Day 107

April 24, 2011

Munchkin getting her Easter Basket!!

Hunting Easter eggs!!

Giving Daddy backward hugs!
