New Pictures of My Girls

Here's some recent pics of Calista and Ursula from this month.

Here's Ursula 'posing' for me. She wanted me to take these pics.

Ursula brought me the velcro rollers and wanted me to set her hair... so, I did :D

Of course, she had to take some silly pics as well :D

Awww, isn't this so sweet?

That's a mighty big bird in that there tree! LOL

Wasn't the sky beautiful that day?

Calista's officially 8 yrs old now :D

She wanted to wear this old dress (its gotta be from the 80's, huh?)... no idea why other then her saying she likes old stuff... LOL

Here's Calista getting off the bus on her birthday :D

She loves getting the mail... that's what's in her arms.

Calista's Birthday Party

We did have Calista's 8th bday party at the local skating rink. We had a pretty decent turnout. And I know Calista had a good time (Ursula did too:D).
My mom, Cherie and her kids, Angele & Shane, Jared and his family all came 2 hrs away to help her celebrate.
Jason and Carter and Calista's Mimi and Paw-Paw came as well.
Brandy and Kelsey came and a few of Calista's classmates: Joshua, Breanna, LaFaithia, Gavin, Noah, and Olivia (but, she only came in to give Calista a bday card with a Wal-Mart gift card in it).
She got like $33 altogether and quite a few Polly Pockets and 2 Bratz Diamondz dolls from her guests. She loved them all!

My mom, Cherie, & Sophia.

Jared and Veronica.

Most everyone at the table.

Pic from the skate rink floor... you can see the guys playing pool and presents on the table.

Pic of Ursula skating... she had such a good time!

Jared hugging mom, holding Veronica.
Shane & Jeremy playing pool in the background.
OH, I'd have more pics but my camera's batteries died!!! Crap, huh? And then, I had packed some other 'recharged' batteries, but apparently, they were no good :( However, Jessica was taking pics, so, that's good :D My 'fallback' :D

My Girlies

Here's pics I took of the girls today. Also took some of their little brother. I'll post his pics on his blog and the pics of all 3 together on my blog.

I also brought them to take pics as well. They'll be in Feb. 22nd.

Almost 8 Years Old!

In just 10 days, Calista will be 8 yrs. old! We'll have her bday party at the local skating rink the Saturday following it. This will be the first actual big party for her. Previous years, we just did a family thingie at either our house or another family member's. Gonna invite her classmates, cousins, and neighbors. It would be cool if a lot of people showed up but if not, that's cool too... my kids will have fun regardless :D I think her Aunt Tasha won't be around because she's supposed to be going up to (Utah?) to visit her husband for a month (plus, his bday is the 10th). Her Aunt Tori and Uncle Jason might not be there because she's due anyday for her 2nd baby. I know her Aunt Angele will be there. More than likely her Aunt Cherie and Nannie Karen. Pretty sure Aunt Aimee and her family won't be here since they live in GA. Not sure about Uncle Jared and his family or PawPaw Wayne. And I guess her Mimi and PawPaw will be there if they don't have other plans (like horse racing). Brandy said she'll go with Kelcey. The rink fee pays for 15 kids. After that, its $3/kid. Adults pay for themselves; Jeremy and I are included in the rink fee. Like I said, whatever the case, whoever shows up, its all good :D My kids will love it.

I'll take pics of the kids today and post them later on. They're all in light blue shirts :)
