Helping with the Laundry

Gaitley is such a good little helper when it comes to the laundry. She loves to help load the clothes and take things from the washer and put them in the dryer. She loves to tell me who the clothes belong to and she even tries to sneak some of her dirty clothes in with the clean ones. I had just taken a load of clothes out of the dryer and was getting ready to put a new load in when I found her sitting in the dryer. She thought it was hilarious!
Oh, and I know her hair is long and is hanging in her eyes. I'm trying to let her bangs grow and she had just taken a bath, so it wasn't fixed. Poor thing can't even see!

Bounce Town

On Friday we went to Wylie to Bounce Town with some friends. The kids had a blast running around, sliding and playing games. Gaitley loved the slide and Garrett loved everything there was to do there. Friday was such a yucky, rainy day so this was the perfect activity to burn some energy.

Garrett took a break from bouncing to play a little air hockey.
Gaitley went down this slide a hundred times, first with me and then all by herself.

A Few Fun Pictures

Here are just a few recent pictures of the kids playing around the house. Garrett has always been very independent and able to play by himself. Gaitley has just started to enjoy doing a few things with out me. She loves Mr. Potato Head and feeding her babies. Garrett loves playing with his tools. He says that he and Britt are the Toolbox Twins. Britt loves the fact that Garrett wants to be just like him.

Garrett's 4th Birthday Party

Garrett turned four on January 10th. I can't believe he is getting so big. He is big into dinosaurs these days and his only request for his party was a dinosaur pinata. Luckily I found a really cool t-rex one at Party City and we had a fabulous dinosaur themed party. Britt ordered some fossils off of Ebay and we had a dinosaur dig. It was so cold on Saturday, so we filled up two swimming pools with sand and buried the treasures for the kids to find. They absolutely loved it! They dug for about 30 minutes and I had to drag them away to do the other games and eat cake and open presents. The pinata was a hit too. All his little friends were so sweet and good. It was a fantastic day!

Garrett and Gaitley tested out the dino dig before all the guests arrived.

He couldn't wait to smack that pinata!

Garrett's Birthday!
Happy 1st Birthday!
Happy 2nd Birthday!
Happy 3rd Birthday! He was a little shy at his party, so it was very hard to get a picture of him smiling.

I am a little behind on posting our Christmas pictures, so I am just going to do them all together. We first celebrated Christmas in Rockwall. Santa came to visit us a little early because he knew we would be in Spearman on Christmas day. On the Tuesday before Christmas, we loaded up and headed to Spearman for two more with my parents and Britt's parents. We had a wonderful time spending the holidays with our families.

Garrett loved his new trampoline from Santa.

Garrett enjoyed Gaitley's doctor kit more than she did.
