Happy Birthday, Makayla!

Well, I'm posting this late (of course)... my sweet girl turned 4 on Tuesday. I cannot believe I have a 4 year old!!! She had her favorite breakfast- chocolate chip waffles with syrup and then we were off to get the girls nails done! They had a fabulous time- they just kept looking up at me and smiling. They loved it. I wasn't super thrilled about their color choices (Bryn got bright green, Makayla was a little better with purple and red). They looked so big in those chairs and were such perfect little ladies. Here's some pics of that adventure...


This is their new pose any time they take a picture- how cute are they???


Look at Makayla's smile. :)

Didn't quite work.





Backing up to Saturday, we had the girls party/housewarming. It was a whirlwind of a week, getting ready for the first week of school at the gym and trying to get my house presentable, but we ended up having a blast. Poor Brynley threw up in the car on the way to get balloons that day, so she had to miss out on the big party. :( But she still got to open her presents and then went to Grandpa and Grammy's for some sweet lovin'. Thanks so much mom and dad for taking such good care of her! Here's some pics of the party (still no flash on our camera, so inside pics don't look so great; thanks for the outside pics Angie!)(Also, I'll have captions on these pics and more pics in facebook, if you're interested)...






















Lastly, I took the girls for their 3 and 4 year checkups on Wednesday. They did such a fabulous job and it was a looooooong appointment (the nurse screwed up Brynley's weight (by a lot- she wrote it was 22 and she's 27 lbs!!) and Makayla's height so their BMI's were off, so the Dr. had to redo everything). They actually had fun since they play doctor at home. That is, until it was time for Makayla's shots. She didn't really cry until the last one and then looked at me like I was the biggest traitor... so of course, I took them for ice cream immediately (before lunch). Got some cute pics, since we had such a long time to wait...




















Makayla got ahold of the camera without me knowing it for these next few...






Ice cream makes everything better.
