Miscellaneous Moments

Well since I'm behind in posting pictures I decided to throw several things all in one giant blog and kill a few birds with one stone!

Courtlyn turned two on August 2nd. I cannot believe my little baby is speaking in complete sentences and making her own choices - she wants to pick out her own clothes and decide what is on her plate!
Her favorite breakfast is Pop-Arts ( pop-tarts ) and she likes to wear her bathing soup ( bathing suit ).

Taylor and Hannah. Notice my little neices tiara....she is the princess she thinks she is =).

Look how serious she is. She can be so intense and then fall over laughing. Shes so cute!

We went to the fair Friday night and met up with one of my BFF, Lucy and her husband Chuck and little boy, Carter. In this picture they are stripping corn and grinding it into cornmeal. We decided now was as good a time as any for them to learn a trade and support us when we get old. They LOVED to play with this - it was pretty neat!

Daddy and Courtlyn on the Carousel. Daddy had a hard time holding her on the horse. She kept throwing herself backward and laughing hysterically.

Taylor and her BFF, Abby jailed with Carter and Courtlyn. Court kept hiding behind the two foot mouse - she said she lubbed ( loved ) her.

We put Courtlyn in the pumpkin ride with Abby and Taylor. Court kept hanging her head out the pumpkin window and crying. One minute she would smile like she loved it and the next minute she was reaching out for Mommy or Daddy and crying so sadly. Daddy intervened and told the guy working the ride to make sure he stopped it on Courtlyns car when the ride ended so she could get out first. I think the experience hurt Daddy more than it did Courtlyn~

Yeah ~ 9 year old girls are sure something! Never a dull moment when these two are together!

Courtlyn is now taking gymnastics. She has such a good time and as you will see below, the Foam Pit is her VERY FAVORITE PART!

We had such a great time with you guys the other night. We will definitely have to all do it again. Courtlyn is so adorable and Taylor is just a sweetie.
Love the pics of Court at gymnastics. I wish we had a place like that in Mboro.
