Great food... Great friends

Today, I made Almas favorite meal.

His moms Pizza, I love it too and Kaitlyn eats it up.

It is so yummy and I would say we have it at least twice a month.

It is so super easy, and I believe it is the best pizza dough out there. I love it so much! I never want to go out and get pizza ever, bc to me this is so yummy and easy and better for your wallet!

I just had to take a picture and share.

Today, I also attempted to make homemade oatmeal cream pies. They didn't quite turn out like I would have liked but they were still yummy. The ones that tasted the best and looked more like the real thing, were gone fast so I didn't get a picture of that, but here is one that I made.
I started googling recipes for random things, and I was shocked that there is a recipe to make ANYTHING! I mean you like it, you can make it. Candy Bars, fun drinks, any type of dinner! I love being able to have all those recipes at my fingertips and able to try new things.

This last Saturday, my friend, Deanna, was having a baby shower. I am so excited for her and I know she is going to make one great mom. It was so fun to catch up and we couldn't even think when the last time we actually saw each other was.

Here are a bunch of us from High School. Now we are all Moms. I felt a little left out not having my kids, but I was super grateful for Alma for watching the girls so I could have a little getaway.

We needed to buy Kate new sunday shoes so we did last night. She really wanted new sandles and they were only $2 so we went ahead and bought them. She loved them so much she wanted them next to her bed. When we went to check on her they were on her feet. The wrong feet, but they were on. Silly girl!

My mom and I took the girls swimming and they had so much fun! Whitney got in too and did great! It was a fun getaway!

Love that face!

And a few pictures of my girls

My friend Anna came over last week with the two girls she takes care of and her little boy and we made lunch. I thought it would be fun to make Almas homemade pizza. Each girl got to roll out their own dough and make their own pizza and put the toppings on. It was so fun. When Alma got home and I told him about it, he was pretty sad that I didn't make any for him, so that is why we had it for dinner today.

It was so much fun and Kaitlyn loved having those girls over to play with.

Alma turned 27

My sweet husband turned the big 2-7 a week ago. I am so grateful for him and all he does for our family!

Here we were having Birthday dessert, Cherry Cobbler with Ice cream!

And here he is with his girls on his b-day! We sure do love him!

Here is a recent picture of Whitney. She has been using her hands to play with the toys by her and she is really growing and more aware of everything around her. She is learning how to roll and she started laughing too which is AWESOME! I love to hear her laugh and see her smile.


She for the last 3 nights has slept for 10-11 hours straight! Can't believe it! Kaitlyn never did that on her own without me making her at 8 months finally. It is so wonderful!

Kaitlyn loves her sister so much. She is seriously the WORLDS BEST BIG SISTER! She has never been jealous or mean to her and she is always so sweet and trying to get her to smile. I love that I don't have to worry about her hurting Whitney. She is so soft to her. I feel so blessed to have sweet girls!

Sweet as Sugar

My sweet Kaitlyn!

Whitney was so content just chillin' with Dad, and so I decided to take a picture of her...

This was the reaction I got as soon as I took it... I think the flash might have scared her. Poor thing!

Alma and I took a couple of casual pictures of us with our beautiful sweet girls.
I took Whitney to the Dr. and she is 98% for height and for weight. I looked at how old Kaitlyn was when she was Whitneys height and weight and she was that at 5 month-7 months! Crazy! My Whitney is growing too fast!

I found this outside of my house while checking the mail! Crazy stuff here in Texas!

I LOVE Weekends!

2 weekends ago we bought a little pool for Kaitlyn for our backyard. It is so nice to be able to go out there and cool off!

We played one of my favorite games as a kid "SPLAT"

They are really building all around us now and so we get to see lots of cool stuff during the day on how they build homes!

I love these next two photos (Kaitlyns faces are silly):

This last weekend, I wanted to have a lot of fun since we had Dad home for Sat Sun and Mon! So we had a WII Night where we played bowling and tennis and then we made Virgin Straw. Daq and played with glowsticks. This is us playing with glowsticks in the bathroom:

We had a picnic on the living room floor!

This is the girls helping me in the kitchen

We pulled weeds and bought flowers of our yard, and so I made us all a cup of dirt for dessert!

Played in the Sprinkler!

Camped out in our living room! Made s'mores!

It was a fun weekend and it was sad to see it end, but that just meant that there is another weekend coming up! Hope you all had a great 3 day weekend as well!
