Day #243 Saturday, January 29, 2011

Emme, Sierra, & Makaylie, this is serious business

Makaylie worked hard to get the ball! All you can see is her ponytail flying :)

Day #242 Friday, January 28, 2011

Well unfortunately I forgot my camera at home so I couldn't take some pictures at homecoming tonight :( Both our boys & girls won their games and the boys game was definetly a nail biter to the end. Afterwards, we went to some friends house & had a great end to the night hanging out with them!

Day #241 Thursday, January 27, 2011

Today's theme was retro day. Makaylie decide to go with the 70's and Taygan with the 80's. I think both their outfits looked so cute with just what stuff we had in their closests & drawers. As you can probably tell by the look on Taygan's face her & I were having some issues that morning. She refused to take a picture without her daddy :)

Day #240 Wednesday, January 26, 2011

A house divided!
Today's theme is your favorite sports team. I'm not really sure that OSU is Taygan's but its different than her sister & thats all that matters to her!

Day #239 Tuesday, January 25, 2011

This week is our basketball homecoming week, and to get spirited up for it they have a theme each day for the kiddos. As you can see today is hat day! Even daddy got in on the action!

Day #238 Monday, January 24, 2011

Another rare moment of my girls enjoying each other's company, jumping some rope! I do cherish these moments more & more everyday.

Day #237 Sunday, January 23, 2011

Me & Makaylie waiting for Taygan's pitching machine practice to be over so we can go feed our faces at Buffalo Wild Wings!!

Day #236 Saturday, January 22, 2011

Taygan's basketball team hard at it! Good job little Panthers. You all are doing a great job!
Makaylie also played today, but my camera died when I tried to take a picture at her game! Sorry Mak!


Day #235 Friday, January 21, 2011

Seems like its been forever since the girls friend, Emercyn, has been over to hang out. She came home with us after the boys basketball game last night, which her oldest brother Chase played in. The game was awesome & we won! Great job Panthers!

Day #234 Thursday, January 20, 2011

Well I didn't take any pictures today, but Chey sure did. He does alot of buyiing, selling, & trading of softball/baseball stuff, as you can tell. So if you are interested in anything along those lines, let us know

Day #233 Wednesday, January 19, 2011

We love some OU women's basketball. Can't you tell??
Being coaches daughters the girls have been going to sporting events since before they even knew what they were and for the most part couldn't tell you anything that happened during the game. I'd say starting this school year though Makaylie has become more interested in actually watching & enjoying watching basketball. I've been impressed that she's picked up on the things she has, she even has a favorite player on the OU's team, #25 Whitney Hand. We don't expect her to ever play at that level, but if she enjoys it & looks up to players like that, who's to say its not possible one of these days.
Unfortunately, she does have part of my genes & that might be a problem in holding her back lol!

Day #232 Tuesday, January 18, 2011

She's so going to kill me when she gets older & sees pictures like these. I thought she looked so cute in the bathtub. In the last few years both girls have started taking showers mostly, so to see her in the tub helps me hold on to her staying a little girl :)

Day #231 Monday, January 17, 2011

And its another night of basketball...

Day #230 Sunday, January 16, 2011

With all the technology of video games, t.v., etc., sometimes the simple things like stacking dominoes & pushing the first one down so all the others will follow can entertain a little one for hours.


Day #229 Saturday, January 15, 2011

Makaylie's first basketball game of the 2011 season! Her team played last week, but she was sick, so she didn't play. Me & Taygan had to stay at home because she didn't need to get out, but daddy said Mak did well. Her team won by one point, she was very excited! Good job girls!

Day #228 Friday, January 14, 2011

Just a lil girls night out ;)

Day #227 Thursday, January 13, 2011

Isn't this just the most precious moment?? Taygan is such a daddy's girl and she totally has him wrapped around her finger. Both my girls are so blessed to have such an amazing dad!!

Day #226 Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Well this is exactly what we were trying to avoid, but Taygan's got the dreaded flu now. She woke up very early this morning with a fever & not feeling well. She took medicine & insisted she felt better, but by 11 or so, she was really sick. Poor baby! This flu is really kicking our rears this year!

Day #225 Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Taygan's basketball teams first practice after their first win of the season. They played Saturday, but we were in Nashville so we missed it :(

Day #224 Monday, January 10, 2011

Our poor sweet Makaylie is very sick with the flu. She looks pretty rough today, hoping she gets better soon!!!!


Day #223 Sunday, January 9, 2011

Today we did pretty much nothing but driving. It was a very long day & we were all ready to get home. Sorry no pic!
I do want to thank all of you out there who read my blog. I love it when you mention you read this or saw that picture. We are all super busy with work, kids, etc., so to hear you say that you took the time to see whats going on in our lives means more to me than I can say!

Day #222 Saturday, January 8, 2011

Well today was a pretty lazy day for the females in the group. While the guys were doing their thing, we slept late, shopped a little around the hotel, & chilled in the room. We were thinking of going downtown again but after we walked outside & felt how bitterly cold it was we decided on the this little restaurant close to the hotel. It was a nice place with this very pretty catfish pond we got to sit by. The food was very good once again & we were all so stuffed & tired from going the last couple of days we crashed early.

Day #221 Friday, January 7, 2011

While the guys went to their meetings today, me & Sammie decided to go explore downtown Nashville. We had a great time walking around checking out all the cool places like the Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of Fame, and all the many clubs & restaurants.

Tonight we went to the Grand Ole Opry. I wasn't sure what to expect & was a little disappointed that we didn't get to hear Chris Young & Rodney Atkins sing more, but it was a fun experience. Afterwards we went to Margaritaville for dinner, which was totally yummy! Well we couldn't stop there so we decided to go to BB Kings because our waiter gave us a VIP pass & then over to Coyote Ugly to finish the evening.

Day #220 Thursday, January 6, 2011

..Yay! We finally made it to Nashville. We are here a few days so Chey & our friend Kevin can attend the American Baseball Coaches Association Convention. The event was held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. This hotel is simply beautiful & amazing. I still can't believe how big it was. Here are a few of the many pictures we took.
The Cascades Lobby

After we got the guys checked in, we got a delicious burger from one of the restaurants at the hotel. The hotel also had this very cool club called Fuse that we went to after dinner. The live band played some awesome music that we had a blast dancing to!


Day #219 Wednesday, January 5, 2011

As soon as we all could get away from work today me, Chey, Kevin, & Sammie headed for Nashville. We had to stop about midnight because we were all super tired! We stopped in Little Rock at this somewhat questionable, but cheap hotel.

Day #218, Tuesday, January 4, 2010

Ok so technically this picture was taken on Wednesday, but I put this new color on my hair Tuesday night. I didn't take a picture of it then because I didn't have time to fix it & if you've seen my hair before its straightened you will understand why I didn't. Anyway, it was really late when I finished the difficult & dramatic task & I was tired lol! If you would like to know the full details of a first time colorer, feel free to ask me, its quite a funny story, just ask my friends who I had to call for help!!

Day #217 Monday, January 3, 2011

Christmas break is officially over, time to start basketball practice again!

Day #216 Sunday, January 2, 2011

The girls were so excited to get home today after spending the weekend with my parents. Our good friends, Sammie & Kevin, had left them a Christmas present. As you can see, Taygan couldn't wait to try out her new Mario Kart Wii game. Yep thats her with a shirt & tights on she couldn't be bothered to put her skirt back on lol!!


Day #215 Saturday, January 1, 2011

Never fear I will get the guys in a picture! Gotta love the goofy 2011 glasses too!!

Yep Brandon's got his pistols firing lol!

Day #214 Friday, December 31, 2010

We enjoyed a nice evening with some good friends. No we couldn't get the guys in a pic together, but here are the very cute girls!! From left to right, Sammie, Me, Jenny, & Stephanie. Thank you guys for ringing in the New Year with us!

Day #213 Thursday, December 30, 2010

Day #212 Wednesday, December 29, 2010

This is what Taygan was weariing when I got home from work today. Yep, she is still in her pajamas. Now thats the life!!

Day #211 Tuesday, December 28, 2010

New book!

Day #210 Monday, December 27, 2010

Its Thunder time!!
Our boys & girls basketball teams got the opportunity to play this afternoon at the Oklahoma Arena where the OKC Thunder play. Since i had to work the girls & Chey went & watched them. I met them after I got off work so we could watch the Thunder play. Even though they lost it was a very good game. I think the girls had a really good time at their first NBA game.

Day #209 Sunday, December 26, 2010

I'm in love with these cookies!!
