I give up

Ok, I'm just too busy to keep backtracking to update. So, I will not be posting until January, and I will start with Christmas. There, I've given myself permission to take a break :-)

Photos from July

Well, according to the photo evidence, we didn't do much in July! I did celebrate my 30th birthday, spent lots of time at the pool, and got to go up to my brother Andrew's house for a visit.
This is a henna tatoo that I did for moms night out at the end of June.Some friends of my brother have horses, which we got to go ride. They also have swings set up on the horse exercise carousel, and the girls had a blast.
Lauren was so proud of riding all by herself. The horse was very tame, and is used to children riding it.

On June 13th, we made an addition to the household: Tinkerbell Seraphina Nicole Burkey. But you can just call her Tinkerbell or Tink. Both of the girls absolutely love her. Claire soon discovered that she can pick her up, and several days later, Lauren got brave enough as well. Lauren is the "mama cat", so she had to dress the part, of course. She still calls Tink her daughter.

Summer Update

Ok, here's the deal for the summer: another family addition (my brother's daughter, Jenna), a family reunion with my mother's side of the family in Arkansas, a weekend visit to my grandparents in Louisiana, I got to sing on the 4th of July services at our church, I taught water aerobics three times a week, we went to Randol Mill Pool twice a week, camping with my family at Lake Texoma for a very hot weekend in July, celebrated my 30th Birthday in July, participated in our local library's summer reading program and earned some fun coupons, Lauren started taking ballet and tap in August, end of summer...The End.

P.S. Will post a few pics from the above as soon as I get them off the camera to the computer, and voila, I'll be all caught up. That only took a year!
