She's 5!

Allison ran through preschool yelling "I'm 5 now!  I'm 5 today".  She was so excited to tell everyone.

Almost 5

Today is Allison's last day as a 4 year old.  While she has her moments over I'm amazed by how sweet and considerate she is.  She loves school, her friends, church and has so much enthusiasm for everything.  Allison loves dressing up but absolutely knows it's what's on the inside that counts.  Can't wait to see what 5 brings us.

NOLA Trip - part one

Two weeks ago Kevin and I got to take a trip just us to New Orleans for a couple days while the girls and puppies stayed in Lufkin with Cathy and Gary.

Day one - lunch in Baton Rouge, a plantation tour at Houmas House, and dinner in the french quarter at Chartres House.

Mother's Day Card

Allison brought me home a hand painted vase with a carnation and a homemade card from preschool today.  I can't stop cracking up.

Happy 33

We had a wonderful family day for my birthday Saturday.  Breakfast donuts with my dad, then a zoo trip and Chuys lunch.  After the girls naps we went to the Kayser's for a summer kickoff BBQ.  Sunday night we had a fancy dinner at Chef Pointe with my parents.

Girl power

Overheard from Allison's play: 
"Can the four princesses save the prince?  Of course they can if they work together".  There was some singing that went with this too. 

I'm a little surprised and a lot impressed.

Petting zoo

Yesterday our local Chickfila had a petting zoo in their parking lot.  The girls loved it, Allison was obsessed with the bunny and Taylor wouldn't leave the donkey.  We made it before the rain and got home before the weather got too bad.
