Today Alexis and I went to playgroup. Alexis had a great time. She loved pulling around a puppy and rocking on the rocking horse. She also made daddy a picture using some stampers. I am sure he will love it. After a nap Alexis and I went to the mall with Heather and the kids. We got some free stuff at Bath and Body Works and VS. We love free stuff! Tonight we had our first tornado warning of the season. Hopefully it will be the last, but I won't count on it.

Some pictures

Here are some pictures from our day. Alexis loves to play with her Mr. Potato heads, but they look kinda funny when she is done. She also loves to do puzzles, feed the ducks at the park and eat grape pops! It was a good day. Tomorrow we have another busy day planned!

Flowers flowers everywhere!

Today was a day full of flowers. Alexis and I planed a few flowers than went to a field of blue bonnits to take some pictures. Alexis loved playing in the dirt and planting some sun flowers. I just hope she has a green thumb becasue I don't. Alexis was very good while we took pictures with the flowers. After the pictures Heather and the kids came for dinner. Unfortunally the grill ran out of gas 1/2 way through dinner.
Alexis just learned how to walk like a duck and it is so cute. I will try to catch it on film tomorrow and post it. She is such a cutie!

Alexis takes on the Zoo!

Today we went to the zoo for the first time this season. It was a great day for the zoo. We went with a few friends and had such a great time. Alexis's favorite animals were the otters and the lions. Alexis loved watching the otters swim in their tank. She was such a good girl on the long car trip. Her and Grace watched a few movies and had lots of snacks. For lunch we went to one of Heather's favorite resturants. Than we made our way back to Killeen. It was a fun filled day. And after a very long day Alexis went right to sleep tonight.

Finally the nice weather is back!

Too bad I was not feeling 100 % today. I did take Alexis out to play in her sandbox and to the swings. She had a good time. She is getting good at saying "swing" and I am guessing the next word will be "sandbox". It seems she is really good at saying words like that, but won't say cat. Instead she "meows". I give up!

A new sandbox and a great deal at Target!

Alexis got her new sandbox tonight and loves it! I on the other hand I have learned that a sand box is messy. But as long as she is having fun it is worth it. We also had dinner with some friends tonight and it was very good food.
I am also excited about the deal I got at Target today! My "partner in crime", I mean friend Heather, and I are learning the fine art of coupon cutting. And we have taken coupon cutting to the extreame. Usually getting items for free or a fraction of the actual cost. It takes very little time, just some planning and organizing before going to the store. It is a skill worth learning and I am glad to have a great friend to learn with.

20 Months old

My little girl is 20 months old today! She is growing up so fast. Everyday she become more like a little lady and less like a baby. It is bittersweet because I would love for her to stay little forever, but I also can't wait to see what a smart little girl she will become.

Learning new words

Every day Alexis learns new words. Today she learned moon and house. This morning we went to Tiny Tots class. She loves singing and dancing with all her friends. Than she played with Ben, Peter and Abby. They played on the swings, pushed the bubble lawn mower, and threw the ball. Alexis is loving the great weather here in TX. After she took a good nap we colored a pillow case to send to Daddy. Hopefully he will love it. I put it in the box along with the 5 dozen cookies I made him and his soliders last night. Than we took all the goodies to the post office. Tonight Heather made us a yummy dinner! Alexis loved the potatos. He tummy was so full it was hard as a rock. We all took a nice long walk after dinner. Hopefully Alexis will sleep good tonight. I included pictures of Alexis putting stickers on daddy's box.

Trip to the park

Yesterday Alexis and I went to the park on WS Young and had a great time. She love the swing and had a good time running around the track. She has now gotten very good at saying "swing". She also has learned to reconize any play structure as a playground and starts to yell with excitment. One big perk of living in TX is the great weather. Alexis loves to play outside. Today I ordered her a sandbox. I am excited for it to get here. I know she will love the many hours of fun that comes with having a sandbox.
