Summer 2008 Kickoff

Well it is official today is our first day of summer. Kinley’s last day of school was yesterday and today our summer vacation beings. I can hardly believe that my first baby girl has finished her second year of preschool. I think she missed my memo that she is not supposed to grow up this fast. She is turning into such a beautiful little person. She is so sweet and kind and has the best manners. I am so proud of her!!!

I am really loving my life right now and I am feeling really good about our recent move. Life just seems so much more simple here. Reggie and I were talking about this last night and we both feel more peaceful in our new home.
Although we will never be free from all of life’s stresses we are enjoying our life and our surroundings. Being able to walk to  the beach, the park and the pool has be a huge treat for us. It almost feels as if we are on vacation. I think that we need this time to just enjoy our family. Our goals for the summer are to have fun together, be involved in our church, grow spiritually, play a lot with our little girls, go on dates and take time for mommy to do girly things and have girls night out.

So today we kickoff the Pool family summer 2008. I am excited to live it. I love my life, my kiddos, my family & friends and my hubby too! Most of all I love my Lord and saviour for all of the blessings in my life.

Proud Mommy

I am such a proud mommy of my two beautiful little girls!

Yesterday Hadley went pee pee on the potty for the first time.  Of course with Hadley being Hadley she never went the hundred or so times that I put her on the potty. She decided to go on her own while I was in the bathroom curling Kinley’s hair. None the less we are all super excited for her and we did the potty dance and ate m&m’s. =-)

Last night Kinley had her end of the year musical at school. She looked so beautiful and she was so excited. This year was extra specail because Kinley’s cousin Nathan was on stage singing too. I love that they go to school togther. The joy that I get watching her grow and be up on the stage just cannot be put into words. Kinley is as sweet as could be and she melts every ones heats with her kind and gentle nature. I am just so proud of who she is. I cannot believe that my first baby girl is going to be five this summer and that she has finished two years of preschool, where did the time go?

I need to make the post short and sweet as my house is in shambles and we have friends coming over for dinner soon…Got go het out the old broom!

Hadley’s Roller Skating Party

Today was Hadley’s Roller Skating Party for her 3rd birthday.  Hadley was so excited and she had such a great time. My little tiny petite three year old has a personality that is larger than life. This girl knows what she wants, how she wants it done and when. I have never before seen a three year old dictate the order of their birthday party. I thought that I would get to do that at least for a few more years. Today I really saw what a little control freak I have on my hands, I cannot imagine where she gets that from  ;-)
 Hadley let me know when it was time to skate, eat, have cake and open presents. She did it all in a very sweet and cute way but I must say that I am a little worried about what a challenge she is going to be as she gets older.

I am so happy that she had such a great birthday weekend. I live for this stuff as a mom, it is just the best!!

Krissie Brown - Ac, After reading this I could not help but comment. I love your mommy babble. It is so inspiring! Faith is the same way. I am so worried what I have on my hands in the future. My family and I have been talking about it and alls I can say is direct that to something she is really interested in. For Faith it is acting, singing and ballet. I am so worried she is going to be the terror I was! – but worse because she is SOOO strong!LOL! At least she is not a pushover. It does get embarresing sometimes. For instance when we are at the park or something and Faith is directing kids on what to do. I am not the type to sit back and watch, I tell her that is not right. XOXOXOXOX

Hadley’s 3rd Birthday

Today was my baby girls third birthday. I cannot believe that she is already three she is growing up way too fast for me!

In our family birthdays last for several days so this entire weekend is dedicated to Hadley’s birthday. This morning when Hadley woke up she was so cute. She was laying in her bed and I said “Happy Birthday” and she looked ant me with this huge smile and said “Happy Birthday to Haddie, can I have my cake?” I explained that it was not time for cake but that we had presents for her and she said ” PRESENTS, from the Easter Bunny?” I just started cracking up. Hadley constantly has interesting things rolling out of her mouth.

The first thing that Hadley did was run into the kitchen to check on her birthday cake, she had to make sure that it was still there. After that we had some good old present unwrapping and then Grandma came over for lunch and cake. Hadley got to pick what she wanted to do for her day. She had it narrowed down to seeing the monkeys at the zoo or going on a train ride at Roaring Camp.  She choose the train. We had a great day!!

At the end of the day my little sweetie was so tired that she passed out in her new tunnel that she got from Auntie.
