Amy put bows in the girls' hair the other day for the first time. (Sometimes I wonder if I would ever think to do anything for the first time if it wasn't for Amy :) The girls thought it was way cool to have bows in their hair and they looked so grown-up!!
Last weekend we went to Georgia for an appreciation luncheon we had at Shane's home church. The plane rides are much harder these days b/c the girls want to get down and run around (which they obviously can't do). We also have to sit in seperate aisles b/c there is a rule that only one infant can sit per aisle due to the number of air masks available. I had Gabbie on this trip and Shane had Jocelyn. Shane had an extra seat next to him (must have been nice....) for Jocelyn to sit in, play in, or whatever. She actually wanted to sit in the seat with her seat belt buckled like a big girl. While Jocelyn was being a big girl, Gabbie was peeing out of her diaper all over my lap a few aisles back. Nice. Very Nice.
While we were there we were able to go to a Raider football game. It's the first one we've gotten to go to since the girls were born. Shane's brothers both coach football at their highschool. Shane's dad was the football coach and athletic director for many, many years. The stadium and the athletic complex are named after him. I'm so glad we got to go to a game. Shane stands (and pretends to coach) on the sidelines during the game. They had a big victory that night so everyone was in a fantastic and celebratory mood afterwards, which is always fun :). Here are some pics of us and the girls in front of the stadium and field house.
This is a picture in the field house of Shane's dad leading the team onto the field during his coaching years. It's Shane's favorite picture of his dad. His dad was such an awesome man. He left such a lasting mark on so many people...what a heritage and legacy...I wish the girls could have met their Grandpa Black. I'm glad that Shane's family loves to tell stories and they will know him well through all the great stories of his dad.
Katie (a fabulous friend of ours) and her boyfriend, Ben, drove from Birmingham to spend the weekend with us in Georgia. We had SOOOOO much fun! There were several times that the girls thought Ben was Shane and ran up to him....only to realize that he wasn't daddy...they do favor quite a bit, especially in person. Thank you guys for coming! It was awesome to see ya'll!!
The girls love to play in bins, boxes, etc etc. They love to get in the SAME bin even if there are several others around. Jocelyn decided to bodyslam Gabbie. They both thought it was hilarious.
This is the girls' first ever art work. On Wednesdays they go to art class at the YMCA. I cried when they ran out to show me their masterpieces. I mean....it just can't get anymore beautiful than this....
Below is a picture of a small miracle....Jayden, Jocelyn, and Gabbie all playing with the SAME toy at the SAME time and NOT FIGHTING. This only lasted for a few minutes...but a small miracle indeed :) Glad I was quick on the camera grab to catch it!
