Almost Famous


From the looks of this picture, one might think the girls are trying out for American Idol. Not quite. I took them to an open casting call for employees' kids for a commercial that WakeMed is doing. There were over 400 kids there and they're only picking twelve for the commercial. So our chances are pretty slim. We were in Raleigh and we decided to give it a go. They didn't have to dress up, speak, or anything.........just have their pictures taken. They're used to that. Everything went smoothly and of course the girls loved it because they got to watch Charlotte's Web on a big screen TV while they waited for their numbers to be called.

Grandma's House

This past weekend, the girls got to spend the night with Grandma....individually. Friday night..........Madeline's turn. She had been talking about it all week. Every day, she kept asking, "When is Friday going to be here?"
Saturday night.........Lydia's turn. She was so excited about packing her things in the suitcase. Of course, both girls had a great time!

Flashback Friday

I don't have any "new" pictures to post today. Thought I'd flashback today... Madeline at 3 months old and ready for the beach!
Lydia at 2 months old and looking springy!

More adventures with Kasey the Wonder Dog....

No, these are not meds for any person in our family. They're all for Kasey K9 Grimes (as written on the medicine bottles). Poor Kasey developed an aural hematoma over the weekend and had to have surgery on Monday. She pulled through it and bought herself another stay in the Elizabethan collar.
The vet tech called it a party hat. I think from the above picture, Kasey doesn't agree. She's doing well.
Lydia's definitely outgrowing her Dora bed. This is how I usually find her before I go to bed and before she gets up.
The girls had fun riding their bikes on Saturday in between the rain showers. Of course, Lydia was dressed in full princess attire.
Madeline enjoyed practicing delivering the newspapers. Might she be following in her daddy's footsteps?

Miracle Dog!

Kasey celebrated her 10th birthday yesterday. She's lived 6 more years than the doctors said she would since she had her leg amputated. She's definitely our miracle dog. She celebrated with some coconut cake (her mama forgot to make her birthday buttermilk pie....I hope she'll take a rain check on that). She got lots of hugs from Madeline and Lydia and a new bone. Now if we can just give her that much needed BATH!!

Eggs-tra Special Fun

This morning we colored eggs.
The girls were so excited and had lots of fun. Believe it or not, they didn't even make a mess.
We even made bunny ears.
Here's a picture from Lydia at her Easter Egg Hunt at "school" yesterday.

Long Overdue

....a picture of these two girls, that is. It has literally been years since I've taken a picture of the two of them. Somehow, the dogs' photo albums have taken a back burner since Madeline and Lydia came along. Madeline is always doing something with the dogs in her room. She plays school, doctor, beauty shop, etc. with them. Most of the time they don't mind. Today, I walked in and she had Kasey posing with the stuffed bunny in a basket for her Easter Pictures (just like she and Lydia did last week). Since Kasey was so cooperative, we found Abby and took their pictures. Madeline even took a few shots with the digital camera and is a pretty good photographer for a five year old. She even switched up the props in the photo below.
