Just a few more things...

Hallie's last day of school... Kindergarten was great!
Little story:
Someone asked Hallie: What grade are you in?
Hallie: {thinks for a second} Ummmm, almost 6th.
Me: {I laugh} Almost 6th, but still in Kindergarten
Hallie: {totally embarrassed nudges me} Why did you tell them? :)

She is ready to be a first grader!!
Teacher gifts: A mason jar + pink lemonade + bright yellow lemon + free download tag= CUTE!!
{Check out Jessica at pen n' paper flowers}
The tag says: Nothing says summer like lemonade & sunshine. we hope you enjoy a lot of both!
Jessica has the BEST party ideas...
Both sisters fell asleep on my lap while waiting for Hallie's assembly to get over :)

Pedicures and manicures :) Piper even joined in the fun. She was quite the diva!!

Reese's last day of school:
She had great teachers this year :) She loves them, and is missing them over the summer!
Family picnic... daddy and piper playing
Reesey's best friend Delaney

Date Night with Daddy

Hallie had a Dinner with a Hero night with Girl Scouts. She was excited for a date with daddy! First stop, the salon for an updo :)

And off for dinner...

Jack, Hayden & Meeko {and my girls}

Here are some pics of my friend's boys :) {unedited}




I have an excuse...

So here are all the reasons why I have been too busy to blog:

1. Reese is back home and back to her usual activities :) She's not back to her "old self", but she is sure giving it all she's got! She goes in every other week for an IVIG (transfusion). She has not had any side effects from them, but we are still waiting for the effects to kick in. But above all, she is the strongest little girl I have ever met. She is so proud to announce in her sweet little voice after getting her IV put in "I didn't even cry!" "Hallie cried more when she skinned her knee!" :) "Can I have a prize now?" She is still the queen of one liners. In fact, she is starting to critique the nurses!! She told the nurse who did her IV "That was good, the other nurse didn't do a very good job" ;) {referring to the nurse who stuck her several times before finding blood} Thank you for all of your continued support.

2. We have met new friends (Meeko & "the dog mom" as my girls say, Lindsay)

3. Attended a baseball game. These two boys have turned from friend status to "Brother" status. Hallie refers to them as her brothers, since she didn't get any :) Hey, I'm good with that kind of brother. And these two boys are the best!

4. Parades. Reese was in the Johnston parade and Hallie and Reese are going to be in several more this summer.
5. Zoo trips. We love the zoo and seeing all the animals.

6. Trips to Adventureland. These girls aren't afraid of anything! One of their favorites is the Gallion. (the big ship that goes back and forth) If Reese was taller she would be on all of the rides! I hang with Piper and Hallie and Reese ride most of the rides. It is nice because there are never lines, and they ask the girls if they just want to stay on to ride again! So fun!

7. Personalized vinyl. I have been busy working on vinyl orders. Some have been a lot of fun.... some have been a lot of work... ugg!

8. Scrapaganza Crop! I was excited when they asked me to design and print their shirts and bags for the event... cuz I knew I'd get to go :) It is an amazing crop and I was excited to see old friends and make new!! Just wish I actually got to scrap!

See??? I've been busy!! :) And July doesn't look to lighten up on fun! But summer will soon come to an end... Hallie starts back in only 28 days :(
