The headlock

This post goes out to all MMA fans! And this is a busy MMA fan month, I know because I live with one!

Presley seems to think that when I say "get together" for a picture, this means "put Teagan in a headlock".

Here's the headlock at one of Chloe's volleyball games. Chloe made the A team, by the way!! Yea, go OE!!

Teagan squirming out of the headlock at a playdate with Jackson and Madison. (Note Presley's ensemble....)

At Great Wolf Lodge (what a fun place for kids and adults!) after we went swimming.

And before we went swimming.

And the girls with their Tapout shirts on. For whatever reason, Teagan calls it her "dinosaur shirt".

(Pre)School Girl

Well I've seen about 1,000 posts on going to school of some sort now that school is back in session. Mine might be the official last one of the year. 'Better late than never' has always been my motto, and I'm sticking to it!

Anyway, Presley was SO excited! And I was thrilled that she was so excited. I was excited, nervous, and scared for her! Her excitement only briefly waned just for second when we got close to her classroom, but Hubby distracted her with the video camera. Never one to ignore the camera, she perked back up and never looked back, literally - we were watching!

Here she is backpack, lunch box, (dog, toothpaste on her dress, untrimmed hedges) and all!

Go get 'em, Poodle!

When we picked her up that day, she wouldn't divulge any info! We wanted to hear all about it - new friends, the good, the bad, and the ugly! But we got nothing! She was so nonchalant about it, like she'd been going for years! I was proud of her! (And just a little sad for me!)

Sweet sister moment!

I took this video back in May, and I'm just now figuring out all the You Tube stuff to share it!

This was such a sweet sister moment.

Fort Worth Zoo

We went to the Fort Worth Zoo a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun. Hot. But fun! A quick piece of advise - don't get caught without water or cash at the zoo. The last leg of the journey we were all so thirsty and they only had cash vending machines. Water never tasted so good! Another tidbit of info, while I was taking Presley to the restroom, I asked Price to put some sunscreen on Teagan. When I came out, it looked like he dunked her into a big pool of sunscreen, she was so greased up!

Anywho, here we are on the carousel. Now I remember why we ran out of cash. They nickel and dime you there! But all in the name of fun...

And here we are waiting for the train.

This orangutan entertained us for quite some time. It was fond of my babies! Monkeys are soooo interesting to watch.

Daddy and Presley watching some other monkeys monkeying around!

It was fun and we'll likely go back next year during the cooler weather!! :)

Over the top!

We went to see the circus this year with the girls. It was a lot of fun. The girls did great - a little restless in between acts while the clowns were entertaining the crowd - but overall really good. Teagan talked about it for days!

Just as took this picture, the sparkles were set off. Made for an awesome picture!

This was Presley with her first bite of cotton candy. She LOVED it!
Here are the girls right when we got inside. All the hustle and bustle excited them!

That popcorn container that Teagan put on her head was, at one brief moment during the show, full of popcorn . And there was nary a popped kernel on the ground. We guzzled that thing! (Teagan even shared some with the little girl in front of us - hello, choking hazard!!)

Bedtime fun!

One of the most special times of day is when we all go to sleep. We all pile into bed, read books, play, and try to unwind. But usually the girls wind up before they finally wind down. This particular night we had fun trying on different hair colors. It was pretty funny and makes for some great pictures!

A blonde Teagan.

A blonde Mama (wouldn't Hubby just LOVE that!).

A blonde Daddy. (He kinda looks like his mama here.)

And a dark brown Presley! (I think it was immediately after this picture that I went and chopped off my hair! I needed some length taken off STAT!)
