Club Libby Lu

Junior's mom, Mimi as we call her, signed Claire up for a free makeover contest at a store called Libby Lu in Stonebriar Mall. LL is a lot like the place we got Claire's haircut, Sweet and Sassy, minus the giant pink limo! Anyway, it is a little girl's paradise. Not thinking that a 2 year would ever win a makeover Mimi thought, sure why not! Well low and behold, Claire won week 1 of their contest! So last Sat. Mimi, Mamaw (my mother), Claire and I headed to Libby Lu for the " make over"! It was the cutest thing I think I have ever seen! Claire got to pick the hair style she wanted along with a costume (that Mamaw ended up buying b/c it was so darn cute), makeup colors, and finger nail polish color. I have never seen Claire so serious and still while Jazz, the Libby Lu artist, made my 2 year old look more like a 15 year old!
Enjoy the pictures!

Week 16

Week 16 has been an exhausting one! As you can tell by the lack of blogs, school has started in full force! I am now standing on my feet WAY too much, but it is worth it (I feel like my feet are the size of Goodyear tires by the end of the day)! I have 20 new cute 3rd graders that all love me to death (don't mean to toot my own horn , but they do love me)! They all think it is really cool that I am having twin girls. They can't wait to meet the girls! Now the girls are the size of turnips! I really don't like turnips, but that is what the email said! I feel like I am growing by the minute! In fact today when Junior got home from work, I was changing my clothes and he said, " Yeah Babe, you definitely look pregnant now"!

Happy 16th/4 months babies girls!

I have written 2 blogs about this already and lost both of them. I am now frustrated with my blog!!! I did want to post some pictures of Claire's first day at "her" Primrose.

On our way to school!

Claire and Dad on our way into school.

Love this pic.

I look happy in this pic, but you should have seen me walking out those doors!

All in all, we are very proud of our Claire Bear! She is just getting so big and learning so much.

Pretty in Pink!!

Our dr. visit today was GREAT! We are having 2 little girls!!!! I am VERY excited and Junior is excited as well! Both girls weigh 4 oz. and are 4 1/2 inches long. The dr. said they are still sharing well, which is wonderful. Baby A was not as cooperative as Baby B. She just wanted to sleep with her legs crossed so we couldn't see what her sex was. So, we switched over to Baby B. Well, Baby B was dancing all around. At one point, she stretched her legs all the way out. It was the cutest thing! After we measured Baby B, we went back to Baby A and finally she was awake and ready to show her goods! Junior was shocked to see both were girls! He is going to be way out numbered in our house, but he can't wait! We still do not know if they are fraternal or identical. We won't be able to find that out until they are born. My dr. said she would be happy if i could work until Thanksgiving. She said I would be pretty big and fat by then (I am already measuring 5 1/2 months, and I am not quiet 4 months yet).

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers that have been coming our way!

week 14

This week I did a lot! I started the week off with school stuff. I had to go to a few workshops regarding math. It was fun to see people that I hadn't seen all summer. Some of them didn't know I was pregnant and then they were really shocked to know I was having twins!

Another huge event this week was having Claire's hair cut! I decided it was time for a big girl hair cut and I must say, it look so darn cute! I made her an appointment at Sweet and Sassy (which I said i would never do, but now that she is bigger I wanted her to have the experience). For those of you who don't know about Sweet and Sassy, it is a little girl salon equipped with a bright pink limo that will pick you up from your house or school (yes, it causes many tears and hurt feelings at school) for your birthday party. We won't ever have the limo experience because I believe Claire needs that experience a lot later in life! BUT, the salon was great! The lady cute her hair then put glitter in it and hairspray that smelled like cupcakes! She loved it!!!!

More Sassy than Sweet!

We also had Claire's 2 year picture made, finally! She was really good for about the first 10 minutes and then she had had it. She told me she didn't like the man who was taking her picture. I don't know why, he was really nice to her. I really think she was tired. Shoot time was 2:30, right in the middle of naptime!

We ended the week at Mamaw and Pop's house. Aunt Jenn, Marshall and Audrey were there too. All the kids had a wonderful time and aunt Jenn and myself had a little bit of girl time! The pedicures were great Mom! Thanks again!

We are now anticipating Thursday! We go to the dr. at 8:30 for another sono. We will hopefully find out the sex of these little blueberries! Pray for us on Thursday!

Happy week 14 babies!

Week 13

Week 13 was full of Daddy!!!! We celebrated Junior's 33rd birthday. On Sat. we spent the morning with Mema and Mimi. Mema made a delicious lunch for all of us and Mimi surprised Daddy with his favorite, a red velvet cake! After leaving Mema's house, we headed to Grapevine for a little family fun! The Gaylord Texan Resort was having a summer fair. We strolled the atriums of the beautiful hotel. Claire loved looking at the motorized trains and all the water fountains. Then Claire got her arm painted with a picture of Tinkerbell! In fact, we still have Tink on our arm this morning. She won't let me wash her off! Once we were finished touring the summer fair, we went back home to have a yummy dinner at Jinbeh ( a Japanese steakhouse). Claire LOVED it! She thought the chef was hilarious even though his remarks were not for little ears!

The biggest hit of the weekend was the Ringling Brothers Circus! Claire and I had never been to the "big" circus before. It was truly amazing! Junior always went to the circus for his birhtday as a child, so it brought back lots of fun memories for him. Claire LOVED the elephants, but she also wanted to know where the cows were. I guess she is a true Texan!!! We had nothing but junk food for dinner and it was heavenly! Who could ask for more: nachos, popcorn, cotton candy (although it was $12, but you got a really cool big circus hat along with purchase), snowcones and cokes! I was really surprised that Claire actually feel asleep on the way home after all that sugar!

Week 13 was great! Happy week babies!

Daddy and Claire under the big top!
