Spring Break 2011

I was off this past week for Spring Break.  Frank took off Wednesday-Friday to join us for some family time.  We had a blast taking Jillian on a couple of her firsts!  Most of all we had fun just spending time with this silly girl!

Scroll down for a few new posts!

Houston Livestock Show

On Thursday we took Jillian to the Houston Livestock Show.  She was evidently warmed up to the idea of the petting zoo after our trip to the zoo the previous day because she loved chasing the animals!

Drinking chocolate milk from Elsie the "Moooo"

Her new favorite shoes...we have to fight her to put on any other shoes!  At least it was money well spent!

Checking out everything the livestock show has to offer

Mommy's cute little cowgirl!

Hanging out in the tractor with Daddy

Being silly

We had a great time at the Livestock Show!  Jillian loved seeing all the animals.  We can't wait until next year!

Jillian's First Trip to the Zoo

We took Jillian on her first trip to the zoo this past Wednesday.  She loved seeing all the animals...especially the monkeys aka "ooo ooo!"

We had such a great day with her at the zoo!  We can't wait to bring her back soon!

Water balloons...the obsession begins

Jillian has always loved balloons, so Frank thought it would be fun to show 
her water balloons.  The kid is now obsessed!

Unfortunately she isn't far enough off the ground to throw a balloon and bust it, but we're working on least once every night!  (I did mention she was obsessed, right?)

Playing catch up!

It's testing time again, which makes for a busy Mommy and neglected blog! I have several posts below...

We are also in the process of planning Jillian's 2nd birthday party. Stay tuned for more posts about that!

I have updated the blog layout and am REALLY liking it! What do you think?!?!

Fun with Mommy's camera!

I'm not sure if I mentioned it, or not, but Frank and Jillian got me a new camera for Christmas and I LOVE it! The other day we took Jillian to one of the neighborhood parks and let her feed the ducks and play on the playground. I was trying to get a picture that I could use on her birthday invitation. I didn't get one of those, but I did get some pretty cute ones!


Little Miss used to be pretty stingy with the kisses, but not anymore!

So sweet!

"Cooka" with Daddy

"Cooka" aka cooking or cookie depending on the context...

Jillian jumped at the chance to make "take" (cake) with Daddy! Of course, he didn't make cupcakes, he made her apple cinnamon muffins.

Daddy explaining how to break an egg

Jillian explaining how you're REALLY supposed to do it

Have to take a "teese" break

Taking charge!

Having more fun playing with the muffin liners than putting them in the pan.
Jillian sure did have fun cooking with Daddy and Mommy had fun watching!
