Random Thursday

Here are the girls before a birthday party.  I just thought they looked cute!
The girls think it is AWESOME that Mimi and Papaw live just around the corner.  It is even cooler that they bring them home from playing at their house on their golf cart!!!  What lucky girls!

Jules The Mommy

Lately, Jules and I have gotten to spend a lot of time together one on one. Jillian is either at school or a friend's house, and so it is just me and Jules! I have really enjoyed spending this time with her because she is so fun to be around and REALLY funny! She is also really good at playing by herself...which is so not the case with big sister. When Jules and I are home during the day, she will go off and do her own thing often, and I find her doing all sorts of cute things. Here is what I found her doing the other day.....

Everyone around here is really into mommies, and babies, and diapers lately with much talk about our new baby on the way. So here is Jules below. She has dragged the dog bed into the living room from the laundry room. She also has her baby and she is changing the baby's diaper! I think it is so cute. can look past the incredible mess that is constantly my living room these days!

Our First Day of School

We FINALLY had our first day of school on Tuesday. It seems like everyone that we know started weeks ago and Jillian and Jules have been so bored! I was very happy this year for school to be starting and for us to get back into a schedule. Here are pictures from our first day at Butterfly School!

Seth and I took the girls to Target the night before school and let them pick out their first day of school outfit. You just can't start out the year in old clothes! :) So, Jillian picked this funky little dress with butterflies on it in honor of her beloved school. Jules went with this rainbow dress to show her true personality!

A flashback to last year to show you just how tiny Jules was!

Jules (almost 2 1/2)

Jillian (4 years old)

We were having a torrential downpour the entire morning of school. Here are the girls acting like they used their umbrellas. Really, I dropped them off under the covered drive through...and ran through the rain myself. This is why you see no pictures of moi on the first day! :)

My big girl walked right into class and starting playing! No crying and no worrying...which made me so happy. I checked in on her all day and she was being such a great big girl and involved in her class!

Jillian hanging up her backpack. And no I am not trying to pull a fast one over on you. In true Jillian fashion, her feet got too hot for socks and she insisted on a wardrobe change to sandals!

Jillian in her adorable class! She has the best teacher, Ms. Beth and the most precious pre-k class EVER!!!!

Trip to the Dentist

Last week we had a trip to the dentist. Jillian has been before, but this was Jules' first time in the dentist chair...and she did great! Our new dentist is so great and has the sweetest staff. They took Jillian back without me for her appointment, and then I went back with Jules for her's. Once the child is 3, they go back to the dentist all by themselves, while the mom waits in the waiting room! I can hardly wait for this day when I just send my kids back and I get to sit out and read a book. What must that be like????

This place had balloon animals, stickers, new toothbrushes, floss. We left there like we had just walked out of a birthday party with a bag full of favors! The girls had fun and the next day Jillian said she wanted to go back to the dentist for her activity that day! Hopefully the girls will always have a fun time there and ALWAYS walk away with no cavities!!!!
