Bransyn's birthday was Sept. 6, but because Daddy had to work we didn't celebrate it until the 13th. Even though we kept telling her "Happy Birthday" the day of her birthday, she never asked about presents or cake. I'm sure that'll change come next year! :)

First day of CDC (preschool)

Today our regular school routine hit in full force with the first day of CDC, the preschool where I work and Payton and Bransyn attend on Mondays and Fridays. Thankfully, they LOOOVE it there and have totally awesome, wonderful, great, loving teachers. My class was not so great, a lot of criers, but hopefully that will change as the year progresses. And that's all I have to say about that!! At least Payton and Bransyn had a great day! Bransyn even took a nap in her class. That was surprising. Of course, that means she'll probably still be up at 11 pm :) :) Here are some pics of the girls on their first day.
Loaded down with their backpacks that weigh just about as much as they do. :)

Bransyn, very happy to be a strawberry this year
Here she is putting her backpack in her cubby, or trying to anyway.

Bransyn with her teachers, Ms. Gloria and Ms. Renee. They also had Kendal at this age and Payton last year in their class. I'm so happy that they are getting our last little girl as well.
Payton gets to be in the turtle class

Here's Payton struggling to get her backpack in her cubby

Both of them said that they had a lot of fun in their classes. I asked both of them what they did at school today. Here's what Bransyn had to say, "I was eating lunch, you couldn't see me eating lunch, but I was eating lunch" also, "I was playing with Austin and Ally" then she started talking about time out so I asked if she was in time out and she said she wasn't. I asked if someone else got put in time out and she said, "uh-huh" so I asked who and she told me that she couldn't tell me. HA! Too funny! Here's what Payton had to say, "ate lunch, but I didn't drink my juice box" and "I helped clean up" and "I learned about God" and that right there is what it is all about!!

Until next time...

Our baby is 3

So...this birthday posting is a little different than Kendal and Payton's because while Bransyn's 3rd birthday is actually today, we won't be celebrating it until next Saturday when Daddy is off and we can all have a fun day together as a family. Thankfully, she is still young enough that she doesn't grasp what today means for her. It seems to me that 4 is that magic number, at least that's when it was for the older two. While we have all told her "happy birthday" and she has had some birthday phone calls, she has not once asked about birthday presents. Thank goodness!! That all being said, I felt like I should at least acknowledge this special day of our baby girl. She was our complete surprise baby...only God knew the thought process going on there! :) BUT....we thank God for her everyday and are so glad she is a part of our family. We have been richly blessed with our three happy, healthy, beautiful girls!! "Happy Birthday, sweet baby girl. We love you"

There will be birthday pics to come! :)

Until next time...
