Yep. It was positively pinkalicious around here last night as we celebrated Sissie's half-birthday. We started this tradition last year where we make cupcakes, sing"Happy half-birthday to you" or "Half-y birthday to you" whichever we feel like, and they receive a small gift. This year, Sissie even got to have chicken "noggets" and "french tries" from "Old McDonalds" for lunch. Oh, some of the words this girl comes up with just make my heart laugh. Thanks Grandma for yummy lunch! We also had some of Sissie's favorite foods for dinner. Pancakes, bacon, and eggs. Breakfast for dinner. Yay! We seriously need to do that more often.

After dinner, we had pink cupcakes with pink frosting and cherries on top that Sissie helped me make and decorate. She loves to help in the kitchen, and they turned out great!
While we were eating them we talked about how they were pinkalicious, just like the ones in the story. And about how much Sissie enjoyed borrowing that book from the library this summer. I think she even asked daddy if he could taker her right then to the library so they could borrow it again. But there was no need to borrow it any longer, because last night Sissie got her very own copy of Pinkalicious.

It's a cute book about a girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and her whole body turns pink! Sissie was so excited about her new book. We had a really fun day celebrating our two-and-a-half year old!

In other news, Bubbas is getting so big. He'll be one in a few short weeks, and is mastering all kinds of new tricks. I even was able to get this one on camera, which is close to a miracle. Anyway, Bubbas has learned to raise his hands when we say "so big", and he's just so dern cute doing it I had to share.

Okay. One more. I can't resist!

Summer Fun

The kids had so much fun outside after dinner a few nights ago. They played while we waited for daddy to get home, and I got some fun photos. Enjoy!

You know you're a mom when...

...this is the scene in your bathroom....

...when what you could really use is just a little privacy.

Father's Day and Doobie's Dedication

It seems like we've been celebrating things in pairs this year. It's been kinda cool, and it hasn't been our doing each time, but it has made the days we've celebrated more special and memorable. Goosie's birthday fell on Easter this year, and then this Father's Day, daddy shared the spotlight a little while with Doobie as he was dedicated at church.

Our day started out with gifts and yummy breakfast at Eat at Joes, a fun little diner, not too far from our house. It's become our Father's Day tradition now to have breakfast there. We didn't take a photo this year, but I remember the one from last year, Doobie was still baking inside my belly, and the peanut girl had just turned one. Boy how time flies! Breakfast was great! I heart their pancakes.

We spent the afternoon at my parent's house with my dad, mom and grammy. We had a smorgasbord of yummy 'appetizerey' finger foods for lunch. Our feast included strawberries with marshmallow fluff-cream cheese dip, apples and caramel dip, pigs in a blanket, honey BBQ wings, a cheese platter and yummy chocolate satin pie for dessert (like we needed dessert). I'm starting to salivate just thinking about it.
What Father's Day wouldn't be complete without a little snooze?
We left my parents, made a pit-stop at home for a quick change, and we were off to church. We do baby dedication at our church instead of the more traditional baptism. The dedication ceremony is more of a 'parent' thing as the parents make a commitment to raise their child to know and learn about God, with the support from other church members. Jus and I decided that we wanted to have Goosie with us as we dedicated Doobie, even though we knew full well that it could make things interesting. And, though this was supposed to be a serious occasion, it was actually pretty funny to watch. Goosie sang the Happy Birthday song and was talking in full voice about our car going 'beep beep' in front of everyone. And, Doobie mauled our poor pastor during his prayer - touching all over his face with his drooley hands and giving kisses too. Pastor Tim didn't even miss a beat. It was pretty impressive, and as I said earlier, you couldn't help but chuckle.

I was so excited to get some photos of the kids with daddy when we got home that day. You guys, I have the most wonderful husband. He is so sweet and thoughtful, and is such a good dad. I'm so thankful for him, and so glad he's Goosie and Doobie's daddy.

Park Fun

We had such a fun day at the park last month with daddy. I know, I know, it was last month (already!). And I keep fully intending on just posting new photos about new events here with the Robinsons, but I really like the pictures I got this day. So, I'm finally getting around to them, and then I can move on to more recent, but still not quite current, happenings! Goodness. Maybe someday I'll be caught up *sigh*.

The kids started off in the swings...

Daddy and Doobie. They're so cute together!

Then it was time for some sliding...

One of my new favorites of Goosie

And, before we left the park, daddy taught Goosie how to roll down the hill. She was great at it!
It was a really fun afternoon at the park. And, I can only imagine that as the kids grow it's only going to get better and better.

Adventures in Disneyland

I'm finally getting around to posting a few photos we took on a trip to Disneyland with Grandma and Grandpa last month. We had such a fun time together. And, I have to say, experiencing Disneyland through this sweet girl's eyes has really changed my perspective .
We all went on a number of rides together including almost all of Goosie's favorites right now: Dumbo, the Carousel, and Small World.

We had yummy corn dogs for dinner, and even got to see some beautiful fireworks as we were heading to the car. It was a really nice day. Thanks for coming with us, Grandma and Grandpa!


I don't think I can write another post without thanking Angela and Rebecca for helping cute-tify my blog. You are both so talented; which worked out good for me since I don't have the faintest idea about html code and such. So, thank you, thank you, and go check out their blogs if you haven't already. They're pretty darn cute!
