3 months Later

I told you I'd get better and better LOL.  Now it's only been 3 months since my last post :)
Ok let's play catch up

December: We had Alexis's and Ryanne's Birthday party.  Ryanne turned 1 on December 27 and Alexis turned 2 on December 29.  I did a Thing 1 and Thing 2 theme since they were turning 1 and 2 :) The party was so fun.  I made Thing 1 and 2 cupcakes, decorated the house with Dr. Suess books and had goldfish, sweedish fish, blue and red jello and a Thing 1 and Thing 2 cake.  The most creative I have ever been lol.  Thanks pinterest :)

We were obviously crazy busy with Christmas parties and NYE in December.  We ended up going to a bowling alley for a catered dinner and all you can bowl on NYE with a group of 17 people.  It was a TON of fun!  First time I haven't had a newborn on NYE in two years :)

January:  Hmmm we were very busy in January but now that I am coming to type I can't rembmer what we did lol.   Maria, Jason, Tim and I went downtown to Slow's BBQ (Tim and my first time) and then the Auto Show.  It was a very fun double date.  Alexis, Ryanne and I have started going to the gym in the mornings to get us out of the house and break up our day.  It's been really good for all of us :)  I'm finally back down to my pre-babies weight.  I'm very happy about that!

February: MY BIRTHDAY MONTH :)  And what a great month it's been.  We went on a quadruple date my parents, shannon, pat, jessica, jamin, tim and I.  We went to Dinner and this nice italian place in Ferndale called Maria's.  Then we went to Go Comedy in Ferndale.  It's an improv comedy place and they had you fill out these cards with different questions.  They ended up picking something off all of our cards except my parents LOL.  I got picked to be "played" for where if my team one (which they obviously did) I got two free tickets to another show.  Pat got picked to go on stage for an improv.  Two of our write in sentences got chosen by random (and were hilarious) and then a answer off Tim's card got chosen for the scene selectioin.  It was an awesome night.  Then aftere the comedy club Tim and I went to pick his brother and sister (Travis and Linda) up from the airport.  They are here to visit from California.  Travis, Linda and I went to MSU so Linda could check out the campus and get a "day at state"  visit.  She loved it.  I hope she goes to MSU so we can see her WAYYYY more!  Brianna had her first Cheer competition.  She did AWESOME!!!  Her team took 1st place and then took 1st place place in their division for free zip up jackets.  I am SOOOOOO proud of her.  I'm hopefully going to be able to post a video of her competition. 

So that's everything.  Check facebook for pictures ;)

5 months Later :)

So apparently I have a really hard time keeping up with a blog :)  I'm doing better tho.  I went from a 3 year hiatus to 5 months lol.  So Shall we play catch up :)

Summer Time:

What a busy season.  We get Brianna 3 weeks in the summer for summer vacation so it's always nice to be able to spend extended amount of time with her.  Our Church (The Rock) had a Summer Camp that we signed her up for and she loved it.  I'm so thankful we did as she was able to meet other kids at the church and get to know the leaders better since she only goes with us every other Sunday. 

Alexis, Ryanne, Zara and I spent quite a bit of time up at my parents cottage.  It's so nice to go there since it's only about an hour ride and just a place to "get away from it all."  Alexis loves the water and Ryanne well she was only six months at this time so she didn't really do much lol.  Although she loved the park and going on the swings :)

Ryanne Started sitting up on her own this summer at the cottage. 

Alexis talks so much!!! Her favorite words are:
Momma (obviously HAHAHAHAH)
B (brianna)
Ry Ry
Apple (not to be confused with the food because she doesn't eat apples she is strictly talking MAC products lol)
IPad (yes it's true and she says it very clearly lol)
Behbou (bless you) anytime anyone sneezes
I DON'T KNOW (Anytime you ask her where something is that she can't see right away)
I KNOW (and she knows the difference in when to use I don't know and I know lol)
Oh-Boy (classic Sancrant)
NO (anytime she doesn't want something)
No No No (when she doesn't want Ryanne to do something)
Elmo (Thanks to my mom since when she had her for 10 days she got her hooked on Elmo)
Water (that is the only drink she's allowed)
As I'm typing I realize Alexis says A LOT of words/phrases.  All her cousins names, Grandma and Grandpa, Snickers (she calls both summer and snickers the same name lol).  I'll stop listing now lol

In August Tim and I went to one of My Best Friend's Wedding in Destin, Florida.  I was the maid of honor and we had a BLAST.  What a beautiful bride she was and a perfect couple they are.  Following the wedding a group of friends drove to New Orleans to go on a 7 day cruise.  Oh man did we have so much fun.  We went to Jamaica, Caymen Islands and Couzmel.  Went to some Natural Springs in Jamaica, we went swimming with Sting Rays in Caymen's and went to Paradise Beach in Couzmel.  What a RELAXING vacation.  A NEEDED one too.  10 days was too long for me tho.  That was the first time I ever left my kids over night ever and well before day 10 I was missing them A LOT!  Next Vacation will be more like a long weekend.

Ryanne started crawling in September.  She is all over the place now.  She cruises along the furniture and stands on her own for a solid 5-10 seconds.  I bet she'll be walking before her 1st Birthday :)
She also has her two bottom teeth and got her two "fang" teeth for Halloween lol.  She is cutting the two "normal" top teeth now.  She wakes up from teething where Alexis never did so that is a new experience for me (to have to get up in the middle of the night LOL).  Ryanne has been sleeping through the night (with the exception of teething) since about 3 months. 

Brianna turned 7 on September 17th.  She's in the second grade now and is all grown up :(  Alexis is the same age Brianna was when Tim and I started dating.  I still remember having a Dora cake for her second birthday and meeting his family at her party.  Oh how time flys!  She is so sweet and always wanting to help out.  My little beezy isn't so little anymore.  She's in Cheerleading at Elite Cheer and it has really helped with corrdination.  She went from not even being able to do a cartwheel to being able to do round-offs, back walk overs, splits and more.  I'm glad she's enjoying it!

Alexis, Alexis, Alexis she just LOVES to get into everything.  She pushes a chair up to wherever she wants to go whether it's to "do the dishes", get the ipad or turn the lights on and off.  She is my little smarty pants.  Always thinking of a way to get what she wants done.  She is so good on the Ipad I don't even supervisor when she's on it.  She goes in and out of the folders herself, plays all the games watches PBS.  I'm going to have to start limiting her play time on there since that's all she wants to do LOL. 


We didn't end up going out trick-or-treating this year (well ALexis, Ryanne and I didn't).  Brianna and Tim went in the cold and rain but the rest of us stayed home.  Next year I'll buy warmer costumes so they can go.  A princess and pumpkin just weren't cutting it.  We did however go to The Rocktober Bash at church with the Babjack's and Lewis Family which was a TON of fun and Brianna went to Tilson street in Romeo (during the day of course) with Uncle Kivin, Aunt Courtney and Jordan.  This is their 2nd year in a row they've gone.  It's actually pretty cool.  Hopefully next year we can all go :)

Now we are to November and let the Holiday madness begin.  We are busy every weekend and then December isn't any better LOL.

I'd post photos but I feel like I would have to post so many to catch up the summer lol.  So photos are on Facebook :) 

I'll TRY to keep up on here and that way I can put photos with it.  Adios!

Ryanne rolled over :)

I haven't really pushed the whole Tummy Time with her because mostly she is in a Bumbo chair to keep Alexis from pushing on her belly.  So yesterday Tim took Alexis with him to drop Brianna off at her moms and Ryanne and I decided to have some Tummy Time.  She was doing great holding her head up so high and then she rolled over :)  So proud of her.  It's the little things in life
