Another fun filled day at school for the munchkin!
She loves it SO much... just wish she wouldn't look like a drowned rat after playground time! LOL... this kid sweats more than anyone I have ever met!

 Oh, and her favorite classmate is Brandon, the little boy sitting next to her... her first crush??

Ok, so this is really how they took their naps today... Tommy fell asleep with his glasses on!  I didn't want to, but had to wake them or I could just picture those specs getting squished!
Thought this was one of the cutest... This is basically what our bed looks like in the morning! Rach loves to climb into bed with us when she wakes up, and Penny likes to perch on top of Daddy's head!  Apparently our sleep number bed is rough for Penny too... she can never find a comfy spot, so she meanders all over the place.  On top of Tommy's head is a popular spot, probably because she won't get kicked!

Went out for a yummy dinner with the folks to Olive Garden.  Yeah, we really do like this place!  I know it's a chain, but I'm absolutely hooked on that Chicken & Gnochi soup!

Good Morning Little Schoolgirl

I can't believe it. Seems like just yesterday I was holding this little girl for the first time. But now, here we are 3 years later and she has actually started going to SCHOOL!  We checked a few places, but had the best feeling about one of the local Temple preschools.  Best part was my mom actually knows the Preschool director!  Turns out her mom & my mom were friends for years, until her mom passed away.  I knew her mom too.  Lovely woman. And her daughter (Morah Joanne) is just as sweet!
 Her other teachers are Morah Jonla, Morah Allison & Morah Cheyenne.

Telling Penny that she is going to school today
She's all ready for her 1st day of school!

1st day hugs for Daddy
1st day snuggle for Momma

Here's her class!  Some of the kids had already gone home for the day
These beauties have their nest just above the Preschool Building!  Yes, they ARE Bald Eagles!

 After she came home from her first day of school, I asked her how she liked it...  Her words?  It was "Awesome and Great".  Then she told her Nana & Papa that it was "Cool & Fun".  Not sure, but I THINK she liked it! LOL

Our Story

My photo
We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
