Daddy's Birthday

 Yesterday was Brian's actual birthday.  We surprised him with dinner from Pizza Hut and cupcakes--all Molly's idea.  She was so cute.  She said, "Mommy!  We have to put up the happy birthday sign!  And make cupcakes!  And when Daddy gets home we will say, 'Surprise, Daddy!  It's your birthday!'  And he will be so happy!"  She is turning into such a caring little girl.

PS--Notice in the picture below that Molly has a paci in each hand.  She's not supposed to have them downstairs and she's been "hiding" them in her purse.  We're currently looking for a PA (Paciholics anonymous) support group in our area.  ;-)

Bubbles, Bubbles

 When Molly was 19 months old, her favorite book was a Sesame Street book called Bubbles, Bubbles.  Her little sister, at 19 months, has the very same favorite book!  Love how my girls are so much alike (yet so VERY different!)

Their bubble bath tonight made me think of Rayna's favorite book Bubbles, Bubbles.  :-)

One of THOSE days

Do you ever have one of THOSE days?  Well, today was one of THOSE days for the Hineses.  First of all, my day started off with my baby girl getting a hold of my phone.  Now this is nothing unusual.  Rayna calls my friend Alicia at least once a week.  I am so bad about leaving it around and she gets a hold of it all the time.  Well, this morning, she got a hold of it and called 9-1-1.  Seriously.  I'm guessing "emergency" must be one of my speed-dial buttons.  While the dispatcher was lecturing me about letting my child play with my phone, Rayna was screaming at the top of her lungs (because I took the phone away.)  She asked for my address and I really expected to see the police show up.  I guess I learned my lesson about leaving my phone around.
Then later this afternoon, my oldest sweetie locked us out of the house.  She's been going around the house locking all of the doors (inside) which isn't really a big deal because our doors don't really "lock."  But our outside door do!  Luckily, my friend Dana was just leaving and she let me use her phone to call Brian.  I'm telling you, these two only LOOK sweet and innocent!
The good news is that sandwiched between those two
catastrophicannoying events, we had a really fun play-date.  Our group today was made up of four PLAN (our Vietnam agency) families and their children.  It was so much fun!  I can't wait to do it again!
And these tw0 are definitely WAY too cool to have their pictures taken.  :-)
