So I know it's been a while and it will probably a while again since I'm heading to AZ on Friday (SOO EXCITED!) I was told that as cute as Lex was sliding down the slide it was time for new pics so this is just for you Michelle although really not much going on these past couple weeks but getting ready for AZ!! I LOVE that you check my blog!!!

So my wonderful friends The Bean's sent Christmas gifts ON TIME (trust me I know it should have been on time) but leave it to the wonderful MPS (Military Postal System) to get it here about 3 weeks AFTER Christmas! No worries thought the girls were so excited to get MORE gifts!!

Ryan doing her thing (eating the paper of course!)

Her new Little People toy (she LOVES it and Lexi does too!) She kept putting the people in and out and LOVES to dance to the music it plays!

Lexi got new dress up stuff (Princess Aurora whom she adores!) She was so excited b/c it had a TON of stuff! Necklaces, purses, rings, gloves, and, of course, a crown!!

So she proceeded to have me put every SINGLE item on her all at once!! Don't worry she doesn't always put EVERYTHING on her just this once. The girl loves her dress up!

This last picture is just random but I had to share. Travis collects medals. Don't ask me what kind b/c I really don't know. They are from all different times and all different things but he buys them a lot (sorry babe I'm calling you out but it's true.) He has them sent here so he doesn't have as much stuff in Iraq to bring home but he always wants pictures and he's picky about the pictures... particular light, use the tripod, make them good quality etc. (again calling you out I love you but I hate taking the pictures it's not exactly a secret right?? Good thing I love you and it's the least I can do!) I take them on a white piece of paper so the background is better and Alexis watches me. So after I took the pictures this last time I was picking up and come in to see Lexi doing this.
That is her Ariel camera and a magnet from the fridge. Monkey see, monkey do. She is so cute!

So Cute... Ryan is like Ashlynne, just eats everything, especially the paper! That pic of lexie is hilarious with all the rings on her fingers... she looks like she can barely walk in that dress.. so cute!

Hahaha, that is so cute that Lexie was putting the magnet on white paper. I love it!

How much fun getting gifts way after Christmas. Lexie and Monica would definitely get along. She gets her dress up on everyday. If she could, she would wear her princess dresses to church too! LOL!

That's so cool!! Your kids are so adorable. I'm so jealous that we won't be able to see you when you're in the states. Maybe next time you fly over... You'll have to tell Trav (I guess I could write him sometime... I know, that'd be strange for me to do that!) that at the Air Force Museum here the have tons of old medals. It's really neat. When we were there last I took some pics because I thought I had heard he enjoyed them. I"ll have to find the pics and send them to you guys.

I think that pic of Lex taking a picture of the magnet is hilarious!!!

That is so funny. It just cracks me up how kids copy everything they see. Sure makes you more aware of the things you do. I guess I better start cleaning up my act a bit since Alexia is starting to copy me too.
