Hollie Pics

>> Monday, June 28, 2010

Hollie has been so busy this Summer. She's already been to two camps. Currently, she's in Houston visiting Shawn's aunt and uncle. They have done arts and crafts, been down to the beach and collected seashells. Thankfully, there was no oil to report on the beach. Whew!!!

Her friend Rylee happens to be visiting her aunt in Houston as well, so they are supposed to meet up at the zoo on Wednesday. She sounds like she's having so much fun, but I miss her terribly. What am I going to do when she goes off to college???

These three pictures are of her and her friend Rylee. Every day after camp, Rylee came over to play. By Wednesday, they were so bored, so I helped them with a lemonade stand. They made the poster together, and even offered Oreos for 10 cents extra. They made $12+ between the two of them. So cute!

Notice the tip jar!

Hollie and Rylee before Twilight Camp. Twilight Camp is through Brownies. They went from 6:00 to 11:00 in the evening. She was tired every night, and especially in the mornings, but had a blast!!!

Rose, Rylee and Hollie at Twilight Camp. The theme was "Clownin' Around", hence the red nose!

Will post more pictures soon. I'm trying to do better with my blog posts. Hollie will love it that this one was all about HER!

We plan on getting the twin's new pool and swimsuits out this weekend, so I'll be sure to post those pictures asap.

Much love,



Brooke and Kamryn’s 1st Birthday Party Pics

>> Sunday, June 20, 2010

A year ago, this is where it all started!!! Oh my! I knew my belly was big, but oh myyyy! My mom showed me this picture from her camera the other day, and it brought back so many memories!

And now look! We are celebrating their first birthday! What a year this has been for us. We have been given so many blessings from God, and we are so incredibly thankful for them all. We celebrated their birthday this past Saturday and had a blast. We surrounded the girls with family and friends and had so much fun! The girls both really got into their cake! Once they tasted that icing, it was alllll over!

This year has gone by so fast. The girls are getting so many teeth in, I hurt for them! They are trying to pull up, but haven't gotten the hang of it yet. But, they are always in such happy spirits. Every where I take them, people always tell me what good happy babies they are. I just smile and say to myself, "Yeah, I know"! They bring me happiness and joy each and every day. Below are pics from the party...

Papa and the girls!

Party Girl Brooke after cake!

One of my closest friends, Jackie, came in from Houston. She helped me out so much, with the babies, party, everything. I honestly couldn't have pulled this weekend off without her. Jackie, you mean the absolute world to me, and I'm so thankful that God put you in my life 10 years ago. I know we will be lifetime friends! What a blessing you are!
I know I'm awful at posting updates. I'm so busy with them all day long, that by the time I put them to bed, I'm exhausted. I will try to do better!
My heart goes out to all of the current CDH families who are going through what we went through a year ago. I pray for God's will for all of you! CDH will always be a part of our lives!
There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about the other CDH families that we got to know so well this time last year. We still pray for your angels and survivors!
With love,
Shawn and Stephanie
