Father's Day 2014

I am so late getting this post out , but I didn't get to take pictures of daddy with his girls until the day after Father's day and then I had to get these pictures edited.  None the less, daddy had a great Father's day with his girls and I.  We spent part of the day with family and we all had a good time.

We are so thankful for all you do for us.  We love you daddy!!!

Daddy and his girls

Rachel and Haley made (with help from their teachers before school ended) these cute little magnetic picture frames for daddy for Father's day.  Their teacher is so creative and always has cute ideas.  Daddy loved them.

A visit to the Dentist

I'm catching up some on my blog.  I thought I would write about the girls most recent visit to the dentist which was back in April/May.  We switched the girls to a new dental office and this was their first visit there.  We are happy with this dental office and will be returning to them for future appointments.

I don't think many kids like the dentist and my girls are no exception.  They can't stand going, but they made it through this last visit.

In April, Rachel and Haley had their check up and cleanings.  Rachel always fights so strongly and she had to be wrapped up so the dentist could do the exam and clean her teeth.  The good news is that she has no cavities!

(These pictures are from my phone so sorry for the blur).

Haley did ok with the exam and cleaning back on April 9th.  She didn't have any cavities either, but she had a tooth (upper lateral incisor) that was malformed and needed to be pulled.  We brought her back to the dentist late May to get that tooth pulled.  She was not happy with this and had to be wrapped up so they could get the tooth pulled.  She was scared and crying, but she did good and the tooth was pulled with no problems.  Haley lost her first tooth on May 28th!  She was a trooper!

Kayla had her exam and cleaning the same day Haley had her tooth pulled.  I didn't get a picture of Kayla during her exam because I had to hold her during it and she fought hard.  Poor girl cried the whole time, but her teeth are good and she had no cavities as well!

All in all it was a good experience at this dental office.  They handled my strong willed kids so well!

Last Day of Preschool!

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted anything on this blog.  The month of May is always busy for me.  I do a big photo shoot that always results in almost 1,000 pictures to edit.  It took me longer than expected to finish this time, but am finally done and can get back to blogging!

Rachel and Haley hit a big milestone - they graduated from preschool!  June 6, was their last day of preschool.  I'm sad as this means they will no longer have Mrs. Tucker as their teacher as well as the teacher assistants.  We were so blessed to have Mrs. Tucker and the teacher assistants as Rachel and Haley's preschool teachers, but Rachel and Haley will be 5 years old when the next school year starts and so that means they will be going to kindergarten!  Time flies too fast and my miracle little girls are growing up!

Rachel and Haley

I took pictures of Rachel and Haley on their first day of preschool this past school year and on their last day of preschool.  Its neat to see how much they have changed over the 9 month school year.


Rachel and Haley received an award from their teacher for all the hard work they did in preschool.  They have made progress (will go into more detail about that in a future blog post).  They have come a long way and will continue to make more progress as time goes on.  Rachel and Haley love school and they will miss their teachers dearly.

I gave the teacher and teacher assistants each a Target gift card.  I found this cute saying to go with it on Pinterest.
