The Sound of Music

We watch The Sound of Music about 30 times a day and the girls LOVE the puppet show. (Which is great because their Mommy loves that movie too!) Here is a little video of them dancing. Just click on the picture!

The Sound of Music


Wow! They are not fighting, pushing each other or tattling....just snuggling :)

Playing with Grandpa

Grandma & Grandpa Maher were here last week and Brooke loves her Grandpa....

Basketball game

Holly seems to be enjoying playing basketball. She is pretty good at making her baskets!

Poor cat....

This poor cat gets very tortured in our house. Sammy is not the brightest bulb because he never runs away.

Brooke's Valentines Day Party

Brooke had a Valentine's Day party at school and loved going through all her Valentine's cards from her little friends.

Busy making their card boxes (she's in the back right corner)

Here is a cute picture of Brooke on Valentine's Day :)

Big Girl bed

I was trying to put this off as long as possible but Brooke is now in a big-girl bed. No more cage - I mean crib. She was very excited & went to bed so nicely. We will see how long that lasts!

Seeing her bed for the first time!

She said "Mommy turn the lights off & shut the door!"


It's amazing how much more room a bed takes up! Her room sure seems awfully crowded now......

Father/Daughter Dinner

Holly & Dan were invited to a Father-Daughter dinner. They got dressed up & Holly got bored and wanted to go home before their dinner even got there. But at least they looked nice..... :)

A little anxious for Spring to get here...

I was out working in the yard and they both were running around the pool. Next thing - Holly takes her shoes off & 2 seconds later - totally naked and sitting on the pool steps. I think the water is like 60 degrees. Brrrrr

Trip to Atlanta

Holly & I drove up to Atlanta on Friday for Samantha's Birthday party. We were both excited to leave Brooke at home :) We both had a great time & Kim and Randy have a beautiful house with lots of stuff to do. Holly had so much fun and hasn't stopped talking about it yet. She stayed up way past bedtime both nights and slept very hard when we got home!

Randy built a cool stage in Sam's bedroom and Sam and Allison are quite the entertainers!Holly didn't know any of the Hannah Montana songs so she just played in the back up band.
Sam was playing "teacher" and Holly was her studentKim & Randy introduced me to the Wii game & I'm hooked. My arms & neck are so sore from playing baseball. This is Kim & her nephew Justin playing. Eating birthday cake - again
Bouncing on the trampoline

Sam's Birthday

Everyone had fun at Sam's bowling Birthday party! Here are all the bowlers.... Holly just set her ball down & rolled it. She had enough time to run to the bathroom & eat some pizza before her 2 mile an hour ball would get all the way down the lane! :)

Anne bowling....

I think she got a spare! :)

Amy & Chelsea

We weren't even out of the parking lot and Holly crashed on Uncle Randy's shoulder.
