North Pole Fire Department open house and Jillian 2 months old!!

Eeep! my happy babyis two months old already!!! Isn't she cute??

Last Saturday was the North Pole Fire Dept. open house. As a lot of you know, Kari LOVES fire trucks so of course we had to go. They had a petting zoo (which Kari would only poke, not pet, the animals) and they let you spray the hose, and they were giving firetruck rides!! Kari had a lot of fun. They gave her a "Junior Firefighter" hat. Cute!!

And here's Kari wearing her daddy's ABU. It was pretty funny. My little military brat. Love you all!!

Cute Pictures!!

Eeek!! Okay, I'm totally in love with my adorable girls. We went to a birthday party for Kari's little friend and everyone got tiaras and "magic wands" including Jillian!!! She thought it was really funny. And I bumped Kari up to 2T for dresses because they're longer and usually have atie so they'll fit. So pretty!! And Kari's hair is long enough for french braid pig tails! They didn't stay in long because she was playing peek-a-boo with a blanket. lol! But fun. And Jillian is 8 weeks already!!! She's popping her head up and has really good contol for such a young baby. It's fun watching her develop so quickly.

Update on us

Hey guys! Not a ton going on here. These pictures of the girls (and tyler) were from mother's day. Tyler got me a belgin waffle maker!! I've wanted one for years so I was super excited. I'm so grateful for the mothers in my life. I've got an incredible mom who is one of my best friends and I've got an incredible mother-in-law, who is an amazing cook (I steal her recipes, my family thanks you ;D ) and so much fun to talk to. And of course, the awesome grandmothers in my life. I am so blessed. :D
On other news, Jillian is a month and a half and smiling (mostly at her sister) she's getting so big and is alert and active a LOT. She sleeps through the night (which is more than I can say for her big sister) She's such an awesome addition to our little family. It feels like she's always been here, even though it's been such a short time. Kari is learning more everyday. She wants all her babies to have REAL diapers on, and she's started "breastfeeding" her babies. Cracks me up! She's such a little mommy to Jillian. Giving hugs and kisses and giving her a binky, she'll bring me blankets and diapers and wipes for baby. She's a little helper and I'm so blessed to have her as a daughter.
Tyler has volunteered for a deployment. The one he wants is to Washington DC/Guantanamo Bay but they want a Staff Sargent for it. His boss and his bosses boss have recommended him for it and it's going up the line so we'll see if they take him. If he doesn't get that one, he's said that he would do a six month in Iraq. So he'll most likely be taken for one of those deployments. Just waiting to hear where and when. He'd be leaving either September or November depending on which on he gets, not including training. I'm still deciding what I'll be doing. I'll definately be going home for Christmas though because trying to be happy and cheerful for the girls alone just sounds super depressing. Anyway, I'll let you all know when I know. Hope you all had a fabulous mother's day!!

Tyler got to fly with the refueling plane and see the jets refuel mid flight! They had to fly up under the plane just perfect and get this pole in the gas hole. I was pretty jealous of him.

Eeeek!!! I'm super excited! I've been reading the Green Rider series by Kristen Britain for about 10 years now (she takes FOREVER in between books) anyway, so she finally finished book 4 and it's in the works to be published. She just posted on her website that she's got a publishing date for book 4 Blackveil in April 2011. I know it's a year away but there's a light at the end of the tunnel!! And who knows, maybe it'll come out earlier than that. Of course, now she's working on book 5 which means that nothing will be solved in this book, but hey, at least I'll get a little fix lol! Guess who's going to be first in line to buy it? That's right, me. In the meantime, I'll read books 1-3....again. lol!
