Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer!

Ok, so I know this is a random post but after reading another blog, I got to thinking about Dora. Rylee loves Dora. In fact, we have so many Dora videos and Dora dolls, I am overwhelmed with Dora. Do your kids like Dora? Have you as a parent ever sat down and watched an episode of Dora? Up until today, Dora really got on my nerves. I would try to get Rylee to watch something besides Dora. HA! Only worked a few times! Today, I realized that Dora was actually a very educational show for kids. Lot's of life lessons in each episode of Dora. Below is a list of life lessons by Dora {as blogged by a fellow blogger}. After reading it, I had to watch an entire episode and after it was over, I so agree that Dora is not so bad! I thought I would share one mom's take on Dora ~ enjoy!

I figure if I have to watch non-stop "Dora the Explorer" every freaking day, I might as well try to get something out of it. And it didn't take me but about 2 minutes to figure out there are a lo…

Weekend wrap-up

We've had a great weekend! Friday, we went to dinner and did a little shopping. Saturday morning, Rylee & I picked up Debbie and we headed to Tulsa for a girls day shopping trip. We went to Affair of The Heart, which is so neat. If you are from Dallas, it's like Canton but indoors and air conditioned. There is an admission fee of $6.00 but that will get you in the event all three days...can't beat that! They have it 4 times a year, twice in Oklahoma City and twice in Tulsa. The great thing about it, there are many vendors that do Canton who also do the Affair of The Heart. If you are ever in the mood for a little road trip, check it out. {} The next show is in October ~ can't wait to check it out! Saturday evening, Debbie & I headed to the movies to see 'The Proposal' ~ if you haven't see in yet, go see it! It is super funny! We laughed so hard. What a fun filled Saturday! Sunday has been a lazy day so far. Kasey worked in the yard, Ry…

1 month

Wow, Landry is a month old! Where does the time go? I meant to post this on the day she turned a month {July 10, 2009} but there was something wrong with my photos and I could not get them to upload. Here is a picture on her 1 month birthday. If you notice, her onesie says "1 month." I ordered these cute stickers {} that you just stick on a onesie...there are 12 of them, one for each month. Super cool idea! A few facts about Landry at 1 month: ~ you are 11.8 lbs ~ you are in size 1 diapers and 0-3 months and some 3 months clothing ~ you are starting to notice mommy, daddy & Rylee more and more everyday! {you love to watch big sister Rylee} ~ you like your swing and you DO NOT like riding in the car. {hopefully, that will change} ~ and of course, you LOVE to shop! Happy 1 month sweet baby girl, we love you!

4th of July

Once again, we had a great 4th of July! Of course, this one was special because it was Landry's first. :) We met some friends and watched the big fireworks display in our little town. It was fun! Rylee loved playing with Halle & Jenna. The weather was so nice last night, Landry was able to sit outside in her stroller. Landry slept right through the fireworks show...could not believe it. I think she enjoyed the fresh air. Hope everyone had a fun & safe holiday.

Until next time.....xoxo
