Our Friday.

Well just before midnight Thursday night I got a phone call letting me know that my uncle Tom has passed away. I was surprised to find that I had an indescribable peace about the whole thing that I hadn't had up to that point. (Thank you Lord. (-:)

After spending a week straight at the hospital I was glad to spend Friday morning at home. My friends Sydney and Rebekah brought their girls over to play and I was thankful for the company and distraction. I was also thankful that they didn't care that the house was a mess...and so was I. I pre-warned them that I was strictly brushing my teeth and putting on deodorant and they still showed up!! Ha!! After the kids played a while we grabbed some Taco Bell and then headed to the kids yearly check-ups. (I may have forgotten to schedule them so we are a teeny bit late on getting these.) At 3 years old, this little princess is weighing in at 29 pounds (25th percentile) and is 38 inches tall (65th percentile). She got her blood pressure checked for the first time ever and was fascinated by it. She was excited to see the doctor and asked the nurse and another patient if they were the doctor. Dr. P is funny and kept calling her Reid (on purpose) and she would say, "No, I'm Lilly!" The dr. said everything looks great.

This handsome 2 year old weighed in at 31 pounds (80th percentile) and 36 inches tall (80th percentile). He had to get one shot. He did great-he didn't even cry...until we got in the car. Apparently he was just being tough for the nurse. Ha! Glad we are done with shots until Kindergarten!

The band-aid covering the shot spot has been quite the ordeal. He wanted to replace that one. So we did. Then he wanted a new one but he just carried it around crying and wouldn't let us put it on. But then he kept crying about how he wanted it on. This lasted about 15 or 20 minutes.

Friday night Chick-fil-A was having Princess Night (and Superhero night, too, but I didn't know that until we got there so Reid wasn't dressed up. Oops!)

We saw some of our friends while we were there!

Rapunzel. I mean Cilla. (;

And Belle, I mean Stella. Lilly has on the Dora princess dress.

While we are talking about Stella, her sweet Mommy Sydney dropped these off for us one night while I was at the hospital so we could have a sweet treat when I got home. How precious is that?? Thanks to her I ate 3 cupcakes in 3 days. Ha! and Eeeek!! They were so yummy and were such a great surprise!

At Princess Night Lilly got her nails painted. She LOVES to get her nails painted.

She got a pink balloon flower. She even wanted a pink stem. That's just how she rolls.

Then she got a pink heart on painted on her face.

Showing it off...but you can't really see it.

The cows were there to take pictures with but my kids have some kind of mascot phobia. They LOVE them as long as they are 3 plus feet away. Any closer they literally shake and run away.

But as long as they maintain the 3 feet buffer zone, the kids think they are best friends. In fact as we were leaving Lilly wanted the princess cow to ride home with us. We couldn't figure out how it would be possible to have her in the car AND keep her 3 feet away so we didn't ask her to come with us. Haha!

Reid got a balloon sword and then had his face painted.

After some debate he went with Elmo. He was pretty wiggly so the guy did the best he could.

Then we came home and made some popcorn and snuggled up to watch a princess movie.

Love all the sweet pictures from Friday!
Reid's 2 year stats were exactly the same as Brody's 2 year! I even went back to double check! So funny! We have big boys! :)
