It's Been A While

So what have we been up to? Well, a little bit of everything. It seems though that the camera battery is almost always low or dead, so we haven't been taking many pictures. I guess it is a good thing that cell phones have built in cameras now. Although they aren't nearly as good, they work to capture those moments! So, here is a little of what we have been up to.

Just playing with her sunglasses! It was too cute! Kodak moment!

First day of school. Okay, so technically it's just music class and play group for Parents As Teachers. She had fun dressing up and getting ready to go though!

Playtime with her BFF (Best Friend Forever in case you aren't down with the lingo).

Playtime at Lila's house! It was really fun!

Found a princess crown at a garage sale. Goes great with Little Mermaid PJ's and her mardi gras beads! A few weeks after this we found her "magic wand" to use with it too! She loves going around saying "Bippy Boppy BOOOO!" (Bippity Boppity Boo from Cinderella.)

I have discovered how to keep her pigtails from going flat. While they are still wet, I pull them up straight and let them relax as they dry. Daddy gets a kick out of it!

Jesstine has recently discovered my iPod. She loves to do puzzles and I like the daily laptime that I don't often get with a busy toddler. If any of you are looking for some iPhone or iPod touch apps for toddlers, Tozzle: Toddler's Favorite Puzzle, Nick Jr's A to Z with Z and Moose, and Parents Magazine Flash cards are a few cheep or free ones that are educational.

It's that time of year again! I LOVE this picture! She is geared up for the Cowboys' game!

Love this one too!

Having some breakfast with her BFF!

Putting herself in Mommy's shoes....literally!

Playing at the park on a BEAUTIFUL day! The shirt is SO true! It says, "Daddy's under my spell!"

This weekend I went on a camping trip with some friends! It was a kind of Girl Scout reunion trip. Unfortunately, Jammie was unable to stay due to a migraine. And there was a little bit of a problem with a disgruntled husband. All in all, it was a lot of fun! This was the next morning after we had all had MAYBE 4 hours of sleep! We had to pack up quick because during the night my throat started to REALLY hurt and I knew that I needed to get to the doctor the next day!

We had a ripping campfire! We found a pretty good campsite! It was a bit noisy with road noise, but overall good campsite!

It is also time for hockey season! Jesstine has gone to hockey games since she was in the womb. We were worried last year that she would be intimidated by the noise. She seemed to do well! This year she seemed a little nervous at first. I think that it was a little more to do with the fact that our seats were on the end over a drop off.

This year they had a new addition to the mascot family. Thunder Pup! Jesstine really liked it!

Having fun now that she has her own chair to sit in!

Couldn't pass up a picture of this! I grabbed Stephen's hand and then we both grabbed hers absent mindedly!

On the way back to the van after the game! She was one tired girl, but really happy!

And here she is in her bed later that night with two of her new souvenirs, hockey duck ("Aunt Kim gave me!") and her fake hockey puck!
Life is good!!!!
