Going Digital

In the hopes of actually scrapbooking my girl's pictures instead of just buying cute paper and staring at in the closet, I've decided to try digital scrapbooking. I think I'm hooked. There's no mess and it's much faster and easier once you learn the program. Here are some pages of the girls:

Ella has been pulling up now for a few weeks. She has started standing on her own. Everytime she stands up, she claps for herself because she's so proud! Today she started walking behind her little pushcart all over the place. It won't be long before Claire will get a "run for her money"!!
She is also becoming quite a little clown and will do anything repeatedly for a laugh. Her newest favorite crowd pleaser is to put her face down in the bath water, and come up with a soap bubble beard. The funny part is the look on her face waiting very still, eyes smiling, hoping to get a laugh!

Claire is growing up so quickly. She will be starting Pre-K August 20th. She will go to school 5 days a week from 8am -1pm. She is very excited and can't wait to go. She is quite a social butterfly and it is so funny to see our little girl start having a social life that doesn't involve us altogether! Mommy and Ella will be a little sad to see her start school because we will miss her, but it will give our ears a rest as Claire is a constant talker!
She also has a new hobby. Daddy has started teaching her how to play golf. She is really enjoying it and told me that she is a much better putter than daddy so he has to practice. She has also started taking Chinese language classes with mommy and is picking it up pretty quickly.

One is Fun!!

We've had a busy summer and haven't posted much, but here are few pics from Ella's birthday party luau. As you can see both girls enjoyed themselves.

Ella's cousin Broden is 15 months older and wanted to go down the "Big Boy" slide. Here are the results:

Ella was dedicated on the same day as her party. Our friend, Gary Miller, who is also the Chi Alpha Pastor at USF performed the dedication for us. Thank You Gary!!
