PayPal Link!

I finally figured out how to set up a PayPal link! For those of you that have contacted me about purchasing a book please click on the link below to order one. I won't be shipping books until the week of April 15th but you can go ahead and pre-order it since I only have a limited number of books and that way I'll save yours. I will make sure she "autographs" your copy and there will be no shipping costs.

Thanks sooooooooo much for supporting my little lady!

Anybody out there listening?!?!

I have decided that if I get ANY response to this post that I will start back updating the blog. I have been on sabbatical for a LONG time but I have been inspired by reading someone elses blog. But then I thought.......who cares.......so let's just see?!?!

A few pics from this weekend....

Everytime I come on here I look at that picture from 2007 and think.....we need to take another family picture.....Amanda just turned 3 years old and we still haven't done it. I hope to get a family picture done this fall (maybe).

It has been a LONG time since I posted anything and I know people (my cousin Trina in Aruba:) are wanting to see what my lil ladies look like these days so I am posting a few pictures from Amanda's birthday party this Saturday.
This is actually a picture after the birthday party when we went over to "warm" my cousin Monika's new house. You can see Monika in the background playing her guitar and the girls are captivated:)
Here is Amira throwing up her triangle. It is hilarious to me and Salama how she poses for pictures like this. I have to stop letting her look at facebook with me since she peeps over my shoulder sometimes and sees the pictures of my line sisters doing this and she is imitating......but you gotta luv it:)

These girls LUV to dance.....this is the "After Party" when they were opening Amanda's gifts. I think they like the aprons.....thanks Grandma Leggett!


Here is everybody after the party had ended. I am sure all these kids slept well after jumping in that moonwalk in 103 degree heat.....I know I did!


SISTER LUV! I hope and pray they stay this way FOREVER!

NOTE: The shirts they have on are made by a friend of mine who just launched her clothing line: http://www.okimee.com/

Amanda's 2nd Birthday with family and friends (from July:)

Thanks Grandma for the Elmo blanket!

I don't know if the children or the adults had more fun at the birthday party! It was a "jumpin" good time! Maybe I'll have my birthday party there next year!





Once again, Grandpa was the biggest kid and the life of the party! He will surely be on the invite list for all our parties:)
My Amanda is really growing up!

Morning of Amanda's Birthday! (from July:)

Amira and I decorated the kitchen for the morning of Amanda's "official" birthday. We had strawberry cupcakes and milk for breakfast!








Here are some videos from the big surprise.....she literally walked from her bed waking up into her breakfast birthday party. I don't know who was more excited....Amira or Amanda.

Here is a slideshow with all the pictures from that week/weekend of parties!

Amanda woke up with an unwanted surprise!

Amanda and Amira have been sharing a room for months now. However, they have never successfully pulled off sleeping in the bed together since we always catch them and make them get back in their own bed…..however, over the Thanksgiving holiday Jacquelle and I were really relaxed with them and they got to stay up and “read books” until they fell asleep. I guess they “read” so much they fell asleep in the same bed:)


The most exciting event was when they woke up and Amanda declared…… “Amira pee-peed on me Mommy!” I wish I had video of that…..it was hilarious. She was in shock and may not sleep with her sister again anytime soon. You’d think she’d know that Amira has a 1 in 3 chance of peeing in the bed these days since I wash sheets at least 3-4 times a week.
