Sydney has Surgery

Well Sydney has needed her tonsils out for awhile so we finally scheduled surgery. I was a basket case until Sydney and I got blessings.  I felt more calm.  Her surgery was at 7:30am which meant we had to be there at 5:30am. I got Sydney up and thought she would be cranky but she was so happy and excited to go. We waited around in the waiting room forever and my mom stopped by and brought her this barbie that sings so it is about 6:30am and we are so loud playing Barbie Diamond Castle which Sydney continued to play until she went back for surgery.

Papa and Sydney

Grandma and Sydney

Here Aunt Sandy and Sydney are in the children's playroom which had movies and puzzles and toys. We would drag Sydney's IV pole down there frequently over the 10 hours we were there.

Mary Frances was so excited to see Sydney. She said to me " mama next Halloween I am going to have surgery and get presents".

This is Sydney's baby that Grandma Francie and Papa Gary sent from colorado.

Uncle Cade brought Sydney a Elmo and Mary Frances a monkey. Cade wanted to be a good uncle and make sure his little niece was ok.

Syndey took this pic of me with my camera. She loves taking pictures.

Halloween at Gallardia

We went to a Halloween party at Gallardia. They had a pumpkin patch for the girls to pick their pumpkins and then they got to decorate them. We ate and danced. The girls love the dancing.

Sydney found a friend "Snow White". Sydney is into princesses and just loved this little girl who was the daughter of a couple we had had dinner with at a birthday party the week before.

Sydney is in her own world when she is dancing.

The girls love to hang out together now and are at a cute age.

Daddy and Sydney dancing.

Here the girls are holding their decorated pumpkins.

Aren't these the cutest girls!!!!

Fall Festival

Every year our ward at church has a fall festival. This year they went all out and the girls had a ball.

This is Bro Burk. I didn't even recognize him in his motorcycle gear. I was like who is this guy giving my girls candy. Good costume!!!

The girls were not shy about getting into their candy and eating as much of it as they could while I loaded the car.

Pony rides!!!

This is my friend Robyn and her new baby Kenzie. What a cute costume.

This is Elizabeth and her son. While she was setting up for the festival he got into the cupcakes and was eating several at a time.

Updated blog

Well I don't update my blog very often but I had so many cute pics from over the past couple months I had to share them. I did several updates so everyone could see what was going on in our lives.

Pumpkin patch

Well we love fall and one of our favorite parts is taking the girls to the pumpkin patch. We decided to go to Parkhurst Pumpkin patch out in Arcadia. We had the whole place practically to ourselves. It was great.

Sydney usually doesn't like to get her hands dirty but she loved feeding the animals.

Mary Frances feeding the Llama.

Corb and Sydney on the hay maze.

Mary Frances had a ball on the hayride throwing hay on herself. When we got done she had so much dirt on her face she looked like she had freckles.

Measuring the girls!!! They are getting so big.

The lady who owned the pumpkin patch made these fall hats and our girls were the first to wear them. How cute, huh?

Our hot tub

Our infamous hot tub. We had this in Colorado and Corbin used it all the time so we paid to have it towed to Oklahoma when we moved back. When Mary Frances was little she called this her pool. Our girls would not swim in cold water for a long time. They love to get in it at night with Corbin and I.

Well I took this picture with our underwater disposable camera. Mary Frances swam all summer at a pool and would hardly ever go underwater. Now summer is over and we were in the hot tub and she decides she wants to go underwater and start swimming.

Sydney in her duckie floatie that she stays in for about 5 minutes and then wants to be on her own in the hot tub.

San Antonio

Well we decided to go down to San Antonio for vacation with the girls. We figured it would be a good trip since it is only 8 hr drive. Little did we know that with our family it would take and 11hrs and we would be going on the weekend of Hurricane Ike. Everybody thought we would get rained out but it was the most beautiful weather and we had a blast.

I am not sure who Sydney learned this pose from but she looks like a teenager and she is only 2. We have our hands full.

Corbin and the girls posed with a boa constrictor. Plenty of hand sanitizer after this experience.

We had our own hammock and cabana at the lazy river at the resort but only spent a few moments there because the girls wanted to be on the beach and in the water the whole time.

We got to watch a 3D pirate movie and the chairs in front of us sprayed water at us. Mary Frances was enjoying her glasses.

The Sea Lion show was great.

Corbin and the girls cooking their marshmallows for smores.

Sydney's first smore and she doesn't know quite what to do with it.

This was the lazy river at the resort and we couldn't pull Mary Frances out of this area. She loved it and kept going around and around on it.

This is us in the hot tub. I stuck the camera up on some rocks and the pic turned out pretty cute.
