Oh, what a good daddy!! :)

And, very late... HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!! The girls are very lucky to have Wes as a daddy!! :)

At the MK Nature Center!

It was very cute... Neither of them wanted to hold my hand...
They only wanted daddy!! :) He felt pretty cool!!

Emily's first sleepover!

Yesterday was Miles and Becca's 6th wedding anniversary! So, we had Emily overnight for the very first time!! Paul spent the night at Mema's house! Katrina was at Brittney's, so it was just Kary and Emily! WOW!! It was a wild night!! They screamed, laughed, giggled, danced, watched movies, ate LOTS of candy and snacks, and had a TON of fun!!! There were NO tears from Emily, and she even used panties the whole time!!! She and Kary are going to be best of friends...

Hyped up on sugar... and a little more sugar!!

They had on matching dresses!! At one point they had sweat pants under... but I didn't get a pic!

Matching pajama shirts!! :)

DANCING!!! They kept jumping up in the air too... Saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY... I'm not sure!! :)


Kids.. You've got to love them... Right?!?!

I have been really bad about blogging lately... My life seems to be much too hectic!! (Kami.. your post made me feel much better to know I'm not the only one who's kids drive them crazy and that I'm not the only one that feels like a bad mom sometimes!! You are a wonderful mom, just so you know!!) We are finishing Katrina's kindergarten year over the summer, so she still has IBI (intensive behavioral intervention... it sounds much worse than it is!!) and started occupational therapy again this week! She has a new therapist (a man) and he seems to really work well with her.. Maybe because she has a crush on him!! Haha.. We are signing her up for soccer this fall.. She is VERY excited. Wes and I are also going to have the girls do this Capital Classic Run.. I think that's what it's called. It's in October. I have always thought track or running of some sort would be good for Katrina. Give her a direction to run and she'll be off!! She is fast too!! They have a cross country team at the Y for kids 6+... We are thinking about it...

Kary is going to be doing gymnastics again.. She loves it! We are working on her little attitude before it starts up again. Man, she makes me CRAZY sometimes!! She yells and talks back ALL the time! She will scream my name if I don't answer 1 second after she asks something!! It's driving me NUTS!!! And, I've been watching World's Strictest Parents, and Wes and I don't want her to turn out like those wild kids!! She is sneaky and pretty manipulative... And she is only FOUR (well on Tues she will be)!!! I really don't know how to stop it...

People never believed how stubborn Kary is until they saw it in action!! Even when she was little, I would slap her hand for touching something she wasn't allowed to... She would just go right back to it... No matter how many times she got her little hand smacked, she just would do it again. That is how it is now with spankings... She must have a high pain tolerance or just her stubbornness shining through, because she doesn't care. It makes me crazy!! Katrina is not like that for the most part.. Sometimes she will get spanked more than once for something, or have time-out, but she doesn't like being in trouble and she can't lie to save her life, so it's something new we are dealing with with Kary. Why aren't children more alike?? The girls personalities are similar, but completely different at the same time!!! You would think the second kid would be easier since you've already figured the older one out... Nope... They have to switch it up and deal with things differently. Kids... you've got to love them!! :)

They are both amazing though... Aside from making me nuts sometimes.. Katrina has been doing so well with her growth hormones and school. She is growing like she is supposed to and no other problems have come up. And she is learning so much in school. And, Kary has been doing some school with Kat too.. She can even write her name! She is very proud!! Kary has become a complete Daddy's girl lately.. On her birthday, Wes is going to wake her up with a cupcake.. She already told me she wants him to get her up on her bday... She is the biggest grouch in the mornings.. But, the other day Wes got up with her and she was the happiest girl in the world!! It was SO annoying!!! Well, I'll leave you all with this random post.. Any advice on how to deal with a sneaky, 100% attitude, stubborn 4 year old is more than welcome!!! :)
