Lilypie Second Birthday tickers


Good Bye for Now

To all of my faithful followers:
We are through blogging for now, we are as busy as ever and although I will miss the detailed family saga to look back at; I won't miss the guilty feelings about not updating! I have decided to print all of my blog into book form and have also switched to writing in a journal so I don't forget all of the things Tessa does and how she changes. :)
So, thank you for being a follower and maybe I will be back.
Whenever we are blessed with another wonderful bundle of joy I may have to being again so that little person doesn't get the second child treatment! No, I am not announcing we are pregnant just that another baby is in our future plans! :)
Love: Bri, Dan, and Tessa

October 2010

As everyone knows I have not been blogging for months now, but I am going to do a October recap of my favorite pictures and a 2 year birthday post because I feel like I need an ending point and it just didn't feel finished.
October was full of Halloween festivities and fun days at home!!
Tessa did great with school, loves to talk about it, and has really figured out the routine!

Tessa and Macie Both turned 2 on Nov 6th!

She picked out a pumpkin at Tuttle's Orchard

Her Pink Poodle costume made by myself!!

Her class party at "school"

She still loves fruit and RAW veggies. She is taking a bite out of a red pepper I was trying to cut up for a recipe!

My most favorite picture from October. What a little lady!



This past weekend our nephew came to spend the night with us! Tessa was so excited to have a sleepover!! David is so great, the sweetest kid, and so well behaved!! My favorite quote from the weekend...upon entering the guest room "I'm in heaven!"

I captured these adorable pictures before we left for church!! :)


First Day of School

Tessa - 22 Months Old
First Day of School
Tessa had her first day of "school", she went to Child's Day Out at our church for 4 hours. She will be going every Friday for the school year!
I'm happy to say she did really well. I told her she was going to stay and play with friends while I ran errands and then I'd be back to get her, she said "yea, yea, yea." So I kissed her and left. I looked in the window and she was playing with a puzzle doing just fine!
The teacher said she only cried once when another little boy was upset, she can be so sensitive to others when they are upset.
So, we'll see how next week goes since she knows what happens! But so far so good!!
Being Silly

In her classroom, you can tell she is feeling a little nervous. We have shirt twirling and shy foot!!
