Computer Savvy

Okay, so I said I would try a slide show of Vegas pictures but it didn't work and I haven't had time to sit down and upload all the pictures of both Vegas and the beach. (Beach pictures are on my facebook for anyone to see, but I will try to get some on here later.) So my computer skills are suffering since I haven't been in school or worked for over 4 years. However, my girls make up for it. Funny story...

A few nights ago the girls were eating dinner and I was walking back and forth from the kitchen to the table not really hearing their conversation. Then I hear Riley start yelling, "Spacebar! Spacebar!" over and over. I kind of listened but didn't get what she was saying. I thought she was yelling about the new Space Chimps movie or something. Finally, I noticed Regan was in the living room and I said, "Riley why are you yelling spacebar ?". She very expertly explained, " Mom, I am saying spacebar so Regan can jump!". I tried to hide my laughing.

The next week we were walking down the sidewalk to chuch and Riley stops and says, "Regan say arrow key so I can make it over this crack." So Regan yells, "Arrow key" every time she gets to a crack all the way to the door.

They obviously love the computer. When they start kindergarten next year I will have them help me do a slide show.........

7, 4, 5, VEGAS!!!!!

Okay, so the title will make sense once I explain. Over the last 6 weeks or so there has been so much going on that I have A LOT to blog about. Also, I have spent ALL WEEK downloading and developing pictures so I feel "in order" enough to get my thoughts to make sense. I will put more pictures up soon ( hopefully tomorrow). We are leaving for our next vacation tomorrow so I am making myself sit down and do this so I am not even MORE behind! Here's to explaing that title.........

7: Jason and I celebrated our 7th anniversary last month. Yeah, we haven't killed each other! (it's been close) :)

4: Regan and Riley are 4! I know, I know...I am a terrible mom for not posting already! We had our first big party with friends and family at Jumpzone in Bentonville. The girls LOVED it! Jason and I got them a swimming pool which has been the best present ever! I even have a tan!! Whooo - hooo!

These pictures are the only ones I posted because I couldn't help it. I just thought they were sweet. I took these on the 4th at my sister's house as they watched fireworks.
Regan Paige

Riley Kate

5: Riley lost her 5th tooth! She also has one 6 year molar and almost has her first big girl tooth in on the bottom. Regan is very proud to say that she has no loose teeth or 6 year molars.

VEGAS!: We took our first family airplane flight and went to Vegas! The girls loved flying. I think I was more nervous that they would be afraid of the loud noises and stomach drops, etc. They were so excited that they never had any problems. We stayed in the Venetian which was huge and so pretty. We walked miles just to get from once place to the other and only left the hotel once just to say we saw the strip. We took a gondola ride inside our hotel and ate really good food. Food is pretty much my favorite thing about any trip. We went to see The Blue Man Group one night and I highly recommend it. It was entertaining, educational and kid friendly all in one!

I will try my best to post birthday and Vegas pictures before we leave tomorrow! I may even attempt a slide show.....
