More of my babies...


Not much to say, just some pics of our blessings to show you...

This is from Friday afternoon.  Obviously they don't match, but I wanted to get Lucy Cullen's picture in this outfit and Lily Kate decided to join in...















Lily Kate is so silly.  She always wants to lie down in the grass when I am snapping pictures.  I don't know why..

And this is what she does when I tell her to stand still so I can take her picture...



And these are from Sunday after church.  Yes, they wore this outfit last Sunday too.  BUT we went with my parents to their church this Sunday for revival.  My childhood friend, Benji Pyeatt, is now a preacher and is preaching revival this week.  It's funny/great to see him standing up there preaching.  He is truly a man of God, and is preaching God's word and winning people over for the Lord.

So yes, another attempt to get their pic in this super cute outfit.  And yes, another "action" shot of Lily Kate because she will not be still when I pull my camera out...


and with her BFF Peanut Butter...



So again, I got to take a lot of Lucy Cullen, and just a few of Lily Kate...











And here are the pictures where Taylor and I were being mean and told Lily Kate that she couldn't ride her bike until she took a pic with Lucy Cullen.   I love how Lily Kate's expression changes in each of them!  Lily Kate was not happy, and Lucy Cullen was very happy...







Those last two are the funniest!  I guess next time we will have to tell Lily Kate that she has to smile in the pictures before she can ride her bike!!!

I told you about my friends Allison and Doug recently.  Well their church, Longino Baptist Church in Philadelphia, is selling T-shirts to fund a playground for the church that will be in memory of Ann Marie.  They are super cute, bright yellow with turquoise writing, and will be $15.  If you are interested in purchasing one you can email me and I will give you details.  I also have a picture of what they will look like if you want to see them.  Thank you to everybody that has been praying for them, and please continue.

Lily Kate or Lucy Cullen???

As I have said before, Lily Kate is our skinny minny and Lucy Cullen is our chunky monkey.  Here are some pics of the girls in the same outfit.  Lily Kate wore it to her 1st birthday party and it was too big on her then.  Lucy Cullen is wearing it now at 9 months and completely filling it out.  Poor Lucy Cullen, it still has Lily Kate's name monogrammed on it!

So, do you know which one is which?  It's not that hard because they do look different, but I thought it would be fun to see side by side pics of them in the same outfit...







and here are a few more of them.

To the beach...!!!...


Last week we packed the girls up, met up with Mimi, Wee Wee, and Day Day, and headed to the sunny beaches of Florida!  We had a great time and both girls loved the sand, beach, and pool.  Here ya go, some pics...


Day 1...


Lily Kate loooooved playing in the sand!


Lucy Cullen looooved playing in the sand too!


Lucy Cullen decided to eat some sand, so Aunt Day Day helped wash it off/down with some water...







And then Lily Kate got sand in her mouth, and she did NOT like it!


she spit and spit and spit...


She is quite sassy in her super duper cute swim suit!



Day 2...

We didn't take any pics during the day :(


Here are a few pics from supper.  We went to Joe's Crab Shack and Lily Kate had a blast.  She loved the loud music and even danced a little.  Here is a (sideways) video of her dancing to the music while eating her cheese stick...

This is the best "family" picture we got from the beach.  More details on that in a few.




Lily Kate giving Lucy Cullen sugar...





Our booth was by the window, and Lily Kate loved looking out...



This girl is growing up way too fast...



Day 3...

Lucy Cullen fell asleep while walking.  Before we even got to the beach!  I think Day Day kinda liked holding this sweet sleeping baby!


We put a beach towel down and Lucy Cullen took a great nap.  I think the breeze and the waves relaxed her!







The beach was crowded, but oh so beautiful~~


This is the only pic of me in a swimsuit.  On purpose!



Snack time!






Ok, you know how I love pics.  And the beach is such a great place to take pics, don't you agree.  Well I knew Taylor would not be happy if I asked him to wear a certain shirt, so I figured we would just dress according to what he was wearing.  Well, bad idea!  I could not get all of us coordinated for anything!  So then I decided to just dress the girls up and take their pic.  Well I had the cutest rompers that Wee Wee had gotten them that was just perfect, except that I didn't have the right bows.  So I decided to put in the bows that I did have, and I would turn the pics black and white.  Well we got them dressed and headed out to the beach ...

And my camera was fogged up and I couldn't get it to de-fog!!!  It was cold in our room and warm outside...

So Day Day pulled out her iPhone and here is what we got...


Mimi and her grand babies...



Taylor was not dressed to be in any pics, but couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a pic with his Mom.  Love this pic!




So there are the only good pics from the beach.  Oh well, memories!

On the way home we saw a helicopter.  When I pointed it out to Lily Kate, she called it a "hockey doctor".  Isn't that super cute?  Taylor and I got so tickled.


Sunday the girls wore the same outfits to church, with the right bows I might add.  I tried to get pics after church, but Lucy Cullen fell asleep and Lily Kate just wouldn't be still.  But here are a few...














 

this is my fave...




When we were on our way to Mrs. Ann's on Monday, Lily Kate asked where we were going.  When I told her, she said "No, no Mrs. Ann.  I wanna go to the beach."  Again, isn't that cute??!!??

OK, enough for now...
