Operation Stay Sane...

The girls and I are very blessed to have some wonderful friends! What better than a weekly dinner date (and lots of wine of course) to pass the deployment year? Below are photos from our first two weeks and a few shots of Rob enjoying his extended vacation, haha!

Amy & Henry, Ashley, Jeannette, & Eddie, Me and the girls (Julian pretending to be innocent!)

Still in good spirits :) It's always nice to see his smile!

Must Love Fruit...

Thankfully my girls love fruit - tends to be the breakfast and dinner of choice :)

Blueberries - are r friends :)

I think she might turn into a strawberry :)

Potty Prize...

Today was Julian's big trip to the toy store to celebrate her potty training success! I told her she could pick out anything she wanted and before we got there, she had decided that she wanted a Dora the Explorer Mermaid! Well, we found Dora, but as we were headed to the cash register, she spotted Cinderella and Dora quickly took a back seat! She is so excited! (For those of you who don't know, we call "Cella" every time she goes #2 on the potty...thanks to my sister it's been quite a hit!)

So it has been a long...and I mean LONG....process, but we finally have SUCCESS!!! As you can see from the Potty Chart (this is for going #2 in the potty - thankfully we mastered #1 a while ago :), it was a rough couple of weeks but when she got it, she got it! Tomorrow is her special day - I am taking her to Toys R Us so she can pick out her special prize!

PB & J...

Peanut Butter and Jelly is a staple in our household - both girls love it! I just wish is didn't make such a mess!

Seven Falls...

This past weekend we went to Seven Falls Canyon here in Colorado Springs - trying to enjoy the beautiful spring weather before daddy departed :) The canyon and the falls are beautiful (but they are NO Partnachklamm in Garmisch!) Enjoy the photos!

Power Naps before we arrive...

Ava loves apples!

"GI" and mommy on top of the eagles nest observatory...

The long climb up...

GI decided we should take the elevator!
