We had a big day yesterday! Susannah had a doctors appointment for her 5 year old shots. I'm not sure who was dreading it more, me or Susannah! I'm so glad that Charlie was able to come with us...I was really picturing that he would have to hold her down, but thank goodness that was not the case! There were only a few tears. It's amazing what a pink lollipop will do! Too bad the nurse didn't think to bring one for Caroline, too, because as soon as Susannah's tears stopped, Caroline turned on the waterworks as she screamed "more more!" Back to the appointment ~ overall Susannah did great! The ped. was amused at how much she talked during the appointment. She made sure to tell him that next time he just needs to go ahead and give her the shots first so she doesn't have to wait so long. She is a whopping 32 pounds and 38 inches tall! I guess she gets it honestly, but I'm hoping for a growth spurt soon.

After the appointment we headed to Columbus for lunch and a visit to Toys R Us. We are now the proud owners of a cute little Zhu Zhu pet named Jilly. I'm curious which will come first: will the novelty wear off or will Caroline eat it?

2010 in pictures!

Wow, I am the WORST blogger ever!! Let's hope the third times a charm!! Here is our year so far.

Guess who celebrated a birthday?! Well, if you know us, then you know that 3 of us did!

Baby Caroline turns 1!

Charlie celebrated the BIG 3-0!!

And I celebrated a birthday, too. At Disney ~ lucky me!

We spent the first week at Disney World! We splurged this time (well, we got a great deal!) and stayed at the Wilderness Lodge; it was beautiful and I would highly recommend it! We had an amazing trip. Charlie has been so busy with work so it was great to have a week of fun, family time! We have always said that we wouldn't be one of "those" families who do a WDW trip every year...but we are actually thinking of going again next May! We were busy and didn't want to miss anything, but we also managed to relax (some) and enjoy our resort. Here are a few of my favorite pictures (just so you know...that is not terror on Caroline's face; that is how excited she got whenever she saw Mickey and the gang, as long as they were at a distance!).

Christmas in March!! I got a mullet and even Santa Claus made a specil appearance!

I don't have any pictures downloaded from the computer from I can't remember what we did!

Guess who turned 5?

Can you believe it...where did the last 5 years go? Susannah also "graduated" from pre-school.

I've been trying to get a good picture of the two girls together...this is usually how my attempts turn out:

I did manage to get a couple of good shots of them individually, though

I hope everyone has a great summer!! We plan on doing a lot of this

First Soccer Game

Susannah had her first soccer game Tuesday night. Technically we don't keep score...but Susannah's team won! Go Red Rangers! We had so much fun watching them play. Susannah had a great time, even though there wasn't too much soccer playing going on on her part. It was a little confusing because at practice everyone has a ball. She didn't quite understand why she didn't always get to kick it to the goal and "win" and there were a few tears when the ball got kicked away from her. But overall I think she really enjoyed herself and I think she'll get the hang of it in time. Hope the videos work...sorry if they're a little shaky. The camcorder had a dead battery so we had to use the camera phone.

Susannah's i

When I was teaching the kids always loved writing on the dry erase boards. So, the other day I was looking at the clearance school supplies at Target and came across a big pack of dry erase markers and an eraser for a little over $2. I picked them up knowing that Susannah would love to write on our board at home. She had great time drawing and writing and whenever I wrote her name she told me to put a "dot". So, someone in her class must have an i in their name! So, I taught her how to make a line and then add a dot to write an i. She was very proud!

Making S'mores

Susannah has been talking about going camping forever! Charlie said when the weather gets a little cooler he would take her, but in the meantime we decided to make some s'mores. So we gathered some wood (thanks to the house they are building a few doors down we were able to find some scraps) and built a little fire in the backyard. Susannah liked roasting the marshmallows, but wasn't too crazy about the s'mores...or even the marshmallows. She just like the roasting...I guess she's going to be a pyro-maniac like her daddy!

Birthday Time

I never knew how many babies are born in this time of year. It seems like we have been going to birthday parties the past few week-ends! But we've had lots of fun. Friday night we had Grandpa over for his birthday. Susannah enjoyed helping make his birthday cake!

Labor Day

We had a great Labor Day week-end! We went to DeFuniak Springs to visit with Nanny and Pappy. Susannah had a great time at the pool and even swam without her "muscles." She would learn to do it now that summer is over! Susannah's favorite part was probably getting her new Ariel movie from Nanny and Pappy...I can't tell you how many times we've already watched it! We went to two yummy cook-outs and just enjoyed family time. Susannah attempted to spend the night with Nanny and Pappy on Sunday night. Charlie and I were back at our place for about 15 minutes when we heard a knock on our door...but we were proud of her for trying. Maybe next time. I wish I had some pics to share from the week-end but we didn't even take our camera out of the suitcase!


We signed Susannah up for soccer this year. We thought it would be a great way to run out some of her energy! It's a 3 year old league so I'm sure it will be a mess! God bless the coach. We start practice next week but we went to meet her coach and pick up her uniform this week. She's a Red Ranger and very proud of her uniform! She had to put it on at the meeting and wore it the next day! She said people will look at her and say "oh, Susannah...go red rangers!"

Trip to Auburn

Last Friday Auburn University had lots of fun stuff going on around campus in preparation for the first game. Susannah and I went and had a great time! Just wanted to share this cute picture of her and Aubie...what a difference a year makes! Last year she wouldn't go anywhere near him. WAR EAGLE!

Susannah's First Day of School

Wow! Sorry it has been awhile since I last posted...I'm not sure what we have been doing but we've been keeping busy! For those who don't know, we had our ultrasound last month. Everything looks good and we are expecting another baby girl at the beginning of the year! We are all so excited! Susannah had her first day of pre-school last week. She did such a good job...I was a little worried but we only had a few tears. She had a great time! She told me she couldn't go to the "big playground because it was too wet" but she did get to play Duck, Duck, Goose, Ring Around the Rosy, and London Bridge. She is going three days a week and loves it! Here is a picture of her first day!
