Aniston helped me make some yummy cookies a few days ago. They were "soooo good" as she would say.

Gotta make it look like we had been slaving away in the kitchen by getting a little flour on us...priceless!

St. George

We went to St. George again this weekend for Trevor(Chris' brother) and Brooke's wedding. It was a lot of fun, even though we were going going going the whole time. We got to St. George with a few hours to get ready, which for me isn't enough time when I have to get 2 people ready. Thank goodness my sister was there to help, and that I have an amazing husband that isn't above the duties that come with children!! We made it just in time for pictures, which with two little flower girls that are in their terrible 2's (Aniston hit hers a little early and Ali will be out of them by December...hahaha) it made things interesting. Then came the wedding, and Aniston wasn't about to walk down the isle, but she made it a little ways thanks to Aunt Shelbi and a cracker. Ali was hysterical when she made her entrance. She had a cracker in one hand, and the basket with flower petals in the other. When it was time to throw the flower petals, she sat the basket down and threw out a few handfuls...so stinkin' cute!! Then came the BEAUTIFUL bride...Brooke looked like a princess!! It was a pretty wedding, and things went well.
We did a little swimmin', but the wind made it cold, and the clouds hid the sun off and on. Aniston still is kind of freaked out by the water, but she doesn't like getting out and talks about "swimmin" constantly, so she must like it.
I hit up an awesome sale at Children's Place, and started on Aniston's Fall/Winter wardrobe. I love sales and love buying Aniston clothes! It's too bad she grows out of them so fast, and that I already have to go exchange some for bigger sizes. I bought 3T thinking that would be plenty big for the girl. Oh no, some of the pants I got fit NOW. She's not even 2, come on!!
So now we're back home, and wishing we didn't have to be back already. There are always so many people we want to visit, but things are just so crazy when we go down there and it makes me sad that we don't get to do more. Hopefully we will get to sometime soon!!

The drive was so nice thanks to Aunt Shelbi's entertaining skills. Aniston is a major shade lover...she has more pairs than Chris and I combined!!

So stinkin' proud of my man!!

Chris did his first Triathlon this past weekend, and he ROCKED IT!! He finished in one hour 47 minutes. Everytime I would see him I would start to cry because he was amazing...he IS AMAZING! Aniston was very entertained with all the rocks, and would cheer for Daddy when we would see him. We all had a blast, and thank goodness Chris was safe(I was so scared!!).

Running in!!

Thanks!

Thank you to all of you that left comments about potty training. I'm a little less of a basket case, and Aniston is wearing panites and a diaper...together...at the same time. I think this is what will work best for her and I. After no sucess for a whole day and a half, I put the diaper back on and the panties over the top. Today was better... THREE POTTIES IN THE TOLIET!!! and a few wet diapers, but Aniston isn't having as many "come aparts" and neither am I. We're going to take it slow, who knows if that's the right way to do it?!

pullin' my hair out

The dreaded potty training has begun. I need tips, hints, ideas, prayers, etc to make it through this event. So far...not so good. Only ONE potty in the toilet and she's done with the whole thing already. HELP

Did you teach her that?

Aniston got some fun little Mickey Mouse "Go Fish" cards the other day, and she was playing with them tonight while we were at my parent's house. She picked one up and said "eight" and sure enough it had the #8 on it. Chris and I looked at each other VERY puzzled...she knows how to count but we didn't think she could identify numbers. So Chris picked up another card and asked Aniston what number was on it "four". Sure enough, it had the #4 on it. My parents came in and sat down and Chris kept showing her cards and asking her what numbers were on them, and she knew all but one or two. I asked my mom if she had been teaching Aniston numbers, and she said no and so did my dad. Chris and I haven't really worked with her on them either, so we all came to the conclusion that Mickey taught her. She watches the Disney Chanel every morning while she eats breakfast, and Mickey does a lot of counting and so do the other shows. She must have picked it up from those. I've been feeling guilty because she watches TV every day, but heck if it will help her learn things that are good then I'm all for it. I think also that I underestimate her abilities and need to work with her on more things. She's such a smart little cookie so I think we'll start with a little adding and subtracting next week (hahaha)!

silly little flirt

I took Aniston swimming last night with my family for family night, and she was so much more relaxed this time! She had a lot of fun, and did a little flirting as well. This pool has a 10 minute time-out so while Aniston and I were sitting a little 4 or 5 year old boy was standing by us and this was the conversation:
Aniston- "Hi boy!"
boy- "hi"
Aniston- "wha doin'?"
boy- "I've been swimming like CRAZY!"
Aniston- "swimmin'!"
I asked him if he had gone down the slide.
boy- "I've gone down the slide like 100 times!"
Aniston- "cool!"
Then the boy walked away. What a FLIRT!! She had such a little flirty voice and was leaning forward and giggling too. What the heck...she's not even 2! Like mother like daughter I guess.

more ZOO fun!!

Aniston and I went to the zoo again today with one of my friends from work and her cute little girl. Aniston and "Bentbe" (Bently) had fun checking out all the animals, and running around together. We rode the merry-go-round again and Aniston had so much fun she didn't want to get off. Cute little Bently held her hand and was so cute to try and make her feel better. I think we are Zooed out now!

Memorial Day BBQ

My sister had us all over to her house for a BBQ on Memorial Day. Aniston had a blast playin' in the backyard with the cats and on the slide while we enjoyed the yummy food and even smores!!
