On to Lexi, our little darling! She truly is a GREAT kid! So sweet! So smart! So amazing! Here's a cute story from yesterday! So.. when she uses the potty I put $$ under her pillow. She won't even be done on the potty and she'll be saying "I get money under my pillow." It's a tradition that started while my Aunt Helen was here.
Well, I wanted to teach her just 'what' we do with that money - where the potty reward leads to. So I let her bring her money with her when we went out to the VA w/ my dad. She put it in the vending machine and got some m&m's and even a sprite (big treat day!!). It was so cute to see her put her money in and make her choices! And we put the change back in her pockets.
Well, on the way home I stopped off at the grocery store, and little miss smarty pants immediately recognized where we were, pulled the change out of her pocket and yelled "me have money! ride the horsies! 2 quarters mommy, 2 quarters!" Now she remembers this b/c every time we go there I say I don't have 2 quarters for the ride! HAHAHAH! So I really wanted to run in and grab what we needed for dinner and get home... but who could resist that?!?!?! She really is the best little thing ever!!!
Here are some pics we took in the front yard this morning. There were soooo many more cute ones! But I just wanted to quickly share a few =)

So I've decided to devote at least one day a week on our little family blog! I have lots of family who aren't on facebook and they get their updates this way and I've been neglecting them =( Although, they don't even know how to 'follow' the blog so I have to email them the link each time I post. (sheesh all this work!
We are currently (STILL) in NH. Well, Naomianna, the boys and I are. We are scheduled to leave for Germany Sept 19th!! Woo hoo! We haven't seen Alex since the end of May...and before that he was gone 3 mos to georgia, before that he was home only 6 mos and before that was the latest deployment that he was gone for a year for. So as you can tell we are anxious to be together as a family again! He got us a great house over there (a private rental) and God has really blessed us w/ renting out our house in WA. We immediately got renters and they signed a 2 year lease! What a relief! I will get some photos of the new house up soon!!
But today I wanted to share some wicked cute pics as I document the lil mamas sleeping on the couch this morning!! The pictures are in order as I took em. The sensor was loud enough to wake her a bit as I snapped pics (you can see she opened her eyes for a second). Then I walked away and came back a few times and here is what I found!! heehee. Just some straight out of the camera shots. The clouds are moving around a lot this morning so it kept getting brighter and darker and I had to keep up w/ the settings. But overall, nice lighting and a GREAT lil model! of course!! =)
(I apologize in advance for the music player being out of whack!! I'm working on it! I've figured out making the photos appear nicer thanks to learning how to work a photogrpahy blog.. but as you can see, w/ the music player, i've got more to learn about this blogging!!)
