Christmas Pics!

Well Christmas was a lot of fun this year! Ashlynn got lots of princess things. We taped Christmas so I'll have to take some pictures of her playing with her new toys and post them later.
Austin got a stuffed Elmo which Ashlynn thinks is hers, and Mom and dad got a cruise to the Carribean in February! We cant wait.
Santa was good to us this year! We hope everyone had a good Christmas.

Ashlynn wasnt a big fan of Santa (by the way I try and fix her hair but I'm not that great at it and then she pulls everything out if it anyway.)

Ash and Austin in there Christmas jammies.

Austin was so excited for Christmas! Okay, maybe not, but he was happy.

Ashlynn got a new outfit and a princess blankie from Grandma Sally. She loves it.

No Christmas cards and a few funny stories

Well I tried to get some pictures of the kids to send out Christmas cards and it didnt go that well. So I most likely wont send one out. Bah Humbug. I'm going to give it one more shot but if I cant get a good picture we might just have to do Valentine's day cards. Here are a couple of pictures from round one of picture taking.

I have some funny stories about Ashlynn. She seems to pick up a new word every week. This weeks word is 'wowzers'. Dont know where she learned it but it's funny.

A few weeks a go I went to Toys R Us with Ashlynn and my mom. Ashlynn found this Cinderella doll that she liked so I let her carry the box around in the store. We left it there and then a few days later I went back to get it. Well I left it in the car and she saw the box and said 'I want my Cinderella doll'. She didnt even see the doll just the bottom of the box. Well I finally wrapped it and I am keeping the presents at my moms house. Today we were over there and she saw the presents all wrapped and she points to the one that is her Cinderella doll and she says, 'Oh look my Cinderella dolls in there.'

One more story. I have been asking Ashlynn what she wants Santa to bring her for Christmas but she usually never says what she wants. I didnt think she really got the whole 'Santa' thing but the other day she told me that she wanted a horse and I said, 'You do' and she looked at me all excited and said, 'hey maybe santa will bring it.' Too bad he's not bringing one.

My cousin Tara came up from Houston for Thanksgiving. It's been so much fun! Ashlynn met her cousins Henry and Avery. We got some cute pictures but of course we couldnt get them all looking at the same time.

Just like a kid again!

I am so excited for Christmas this year. Ashlynn will be so much fun! It's just as exciting as when I was a kid and I couldnt wait to open my presents.
I bought her a Cinderella doll and left it in the car. Well she saw it in the bag and she says in her funny little voice, 'Oh my Cinderella doll.' She is so funny. The thing is- when she opens it on Christmas she will remember that she saw it in the car. Good thing she doesnt get the whole Santa thing yet.
One more funny thing about Ash, when we are driving home at night she looks out her window 'and she says, 'Look the moon is coming with us.' It's so fun to hear her talk and try to work new words that she has learned into sentences. She is so funny!
Anyway, here are some more pictures of her just kickin back.

Ashlynn loves sitting like this. I think it's so cute!

Not to much going on

Well Austin is getting bigger but he doesnt take pictures like Ashlynn. One of these days I'll get a picture of him actually smiling though. He laughed the other day it was so cute. We love our little Austin.

Cutest Little Princess

Ashlynn has been so funny lately. I heard her on her phone the other day saying, 'Oh I dont have any parents."
Then I asked her if she would pick up her toys and she said 'no' so I asked her if I should throw them away and she said 'yes'.
She got a princess chair and a Cinderella outfit that she absolutely loves.
I just love Ash. She is such a sweetie! I cant wait for Christmas!!! She will be so excited for her presents I'm sure.

Little Austin

Austin is getting so big! He's finally starting to talk and smile.

just some new pictures

Ashlynn being a crazy girl!

Ashlynn and Austin just hanging out. Austin has a little bit of Bailee Cheeks.

Little Austin is getting so fun! He is smiling a lot now, but I cant seem to get a real good picture of him doing it. And his hair is not red, it's just the lighting!

A dream is a wish

I tried to get Ashlynn to sing the song from Cinderella (A dream is a wish) but she was kind of distracted so I only got her to sing some of it. She has a great voice! Just listen to her hit the high notes.

Okay, so these aren't the best pictures of Ashlynn and Austin's halloween costumes, but they'll work. They both looked so cute!! Just to make sure you all know what they were, Ashlynn was a witch and Austin was a monkey. We made it trick or treating to about three houses which was fine with us. Ashlynn was happy with the sucker that she got at the first house so we could have stopped then. She hasnt really caught on to what Halloween really is yet. She loved being a scary witch. Austin pretty much hated wearing his costume, but at this age he doesnt have a choice.

The special costume award goes to Mark. The pictures speak for themselves!!!!!!! At least he won best costume at his work and he got a $50 gift card to Good Wood BBQ restaurant.

more pictures

We went to Gardner Village to see the witches and pumpkins. Ashlynn didnt really care for the witches but she loved the pumpkins.

The other picture is of Ashlynn. She fell asleep in the car so I asked Ryan to just bring her in the house in her carseat so she wouldnt wake up. She was completely out of it.

kids are great!

I think this blog will be more of a journal for me, mostly so I can remember what funny things Ashlynn and Austin are doing.
We'll start with Ashlynn. Her favorite movie is Nemo. The other day she was watching it and Marlin (Nemo's dad) was talking to Nemo and she said to me, 'Mom, he's talking to his son huh'. She is pretty funny. Her favorite phrase right now is 'of course'. She just got a new bed, which she thinks is a toy, but she loves it! Here are a few pictures of her in her new bed.

Austin is starting to smile. His favorite buddy is Halle. He is a good little baby! Yahoo! Maybe he can teach Halle a few tricks of how to be happy. Any way here are some pictures of Austin.

Ashlynn and Austin- 1 week old

I have been trying to figure out who Austin looks like. I dont think it's Ashlynn, who looks just like Mark, so that rules him out too. I don't really see any of me in him though either. Anyway, here are their pictures at one week.
