Haha! Thank you Modern Family. =) Apparently, when the girls get a hold of my camera and try to take a picture of me, I feel it's my duty to make the ugliest face possible! I think sometimes I make faces to answer questions. For example - if you were to ask me:
"Hey Brittanie! What did you think of the Mango Pulled Pork Enchiladas you made last night?"
Answer: (see picture)
Yes, they were that gross. Nathan says they are a little better heated up the next day. I can't believe he took them for lunch. Gag.
Or: Hey Brittanie! How did you feel about the movie THE SOCIAL NETWORK?
Yes, I thought it was that boring.
Anyway, time to catch up!
Beanie's 2 front teeth dangled there for a couple months until she finally got brave enough to let Nathan take them out. We did them over 2 nights. After the first one came out she sort of looked like a little hillbilly!
She was SO happy to have them out and Keslie was SO jealous and wishing that she could lose some teeth.
We spent one Saturday morning trying to teach the girl's how to ride two wheelers. Anika got the hang of it but Keslie kept turning around to make sure we were behind her and then she'd crash. We broke out the ole' roller blades and had a blast.
Brenan climbed into the bathtub with his clothes on for the first time(I think). He climbed in while it was draining so by the time I found him (Anika ran down to tell me he'd climbed in) he was just all wet in an empty tub.
Here he is just chillaxin'.
I said "what are you doing you weirdo?!" and he turned and gave me a big old grin. Haha!
It got pretty cold here in San Antonio! We even had a snow day! It was pretty comical watching the newscasters talking about the snow. The entire city shut down! Check out these pictures I took at the entrance to our neighborhood! It reminded me of CT!
We had a baby shower for one of my best friends - she had her first boy!!
Ashley and Heather - oh! I love them!They are holding the "group gift". Haha! It was to signify a rocking chair but when she opened it she was pretty confused! I had a good laugh. =)
Nicole, Britt, and Bretta.
Nicole - I want you to know that this picture made me love you even more and it was even better because it was a surprise! I had no idea you did the tongue face. LOVE IT!
Some of the fabulous guests (I should have taken the camera out before people left!):
Ashley, Nanci, Jordan, Celeste, and Katie
Cute Lindsay and cute Shannon
We had yummy soups and salad and I had leftovers for days. It was glorious! Now Kyler is here and he is so darn cute. =)
We took the kids to the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo and it was a blast! I'm sad that we didn't get to see the actual rodeo - we just wandered the grounds. It reminded me of the state fair. My biggest regret is that I didn't have a cowboy hat to wear. =(
We learned how to lasso. Nath got the hang of it pretty fast!
and we got to pose with an Indian chief!
They had the best petting zoo I've ever been to! Sheep, kangaroos, llamas, dear, and pot-bellied pigs were a few of the animals wandering around and some were hungry! There was a dear that kept trying to eat Nathan's shirt!
"Llama face!! WAAAA!"
The kids rode some carnival rides:
Every time Kes came around she was doing something different. She's hilarious. =)
I learned something new about Nathan! He has never been to a state fair or ridden any fair rides! I can't wait to take him back and ride on the Top Spin with him.
Anika got to hold a ginormous beetle. She's our little bug charmer.
We did our best to keep track of this little escape artist! It was such a fun day and I'm so glad we went!
It was fun to hear these girl's love stories. =)
I know our husbands feel so happy to be married to such beauties. Haha!
Me, Lindsay, and Ashley went on a little girl's night out before V-day and had a lot of fun! We went to Orange Leaf (my new favorite frozen yogurt place!).
Then we did a little shopping. Fun night!
On Valentine's Day we had a PINK and RED breakfast.
Pink, heart-shaped (sort of) pancakes with strawberry syrup and red smoothies.
It was so easy and the kids were beyond excited!
The girls on V-day morning:
We also cut out, baked, frosted, and decorated dozens of sugar cookies! In keeping with tradition we only delivered half the plates we planned to. It always takes so much longer than I think it will! Next year we decided to divide and conquer. =)And for my Valentine:
This is my super cheesy love song for Nathan! I just love him so much!
