Miss You Already...

This is how we felt having our Ya
in town...Gleeful!

We miss you already Ya!
Merci beaucoup for coming all the
way to Austin to spend time with
me and Maggs. We love you so much!
It's always special when you stay with us.
I loved watching movies with you,
reading stories, playing princesses,
shopping, eating out, and of
course snuggling, too!
Thank you for cooking me dinner,
giving me baths, and reading me
bedtime stories every night you
were here. Maggs says thank you
for holding and loving her...
We can't wait to see you next
month and we are so excited to
see your new home, too!
p.s. tell Papa Terry to get ready for us!

Safe travels!
Your Granddaughter

Mommy and Paisley's Tip For Tuesday: Gifts For All Kinds Of Kids...

earth mama or papa...
crafty kid...
and petite artiste!
(Just a few of the personalities
mommy chose to search for
gifts for MOI this holiday season)

Mommy was making a list,
and checking it twice...
and she stumbled across
a website we love~
Land of Nod
(sure you've heard of it,
or shopped there yourself)
What's so cool about it this year
is you can shop by personality~
They have categorized gifts to
make your holiday shopping for
the little ones in your life so much
easier. We LOVE this concept
and had to share.
We know Amazon wish lists are
fun to make and so convenient,
but why not check out this site, too?
YOU might just LOVE it as much as we do!

Happy Shopping!

Paisley Grace
and her mommy, too!

Magpie is Three Months Old and Counting...

This is my little sister.
I call her Maggs.
She is 3 months old
and counting...
Right now she just
LOVES playing in
her excersaucer!
(which used to be mine
but I am sharing with her)
She likes to pull my hair...
She laughs, smiles,
and 'talks' all the time now!
I wonder what she'll start
doing next...

J'adore snuggling with my baby sister...
She is so cute...
And lovable!

Wishing y'all some
snuggle time with your sister

this lazy Sunday...

and BFF a lot and can't wait
to see them both next month.
So, until then she is sending
BIG Texas sized hugs and kisses
to Aunt Jen Jen and Aunt Summer!

Wordless Wednesday: Ladybug Fairy Faces...

Moi, and my many
Ladybug Fairy faces...

p.s. I promise this post is
the last of my Halloween picture posts.
As usual, mommy gets a
little carried away with taking
pictures of me and then she
can't decide which are her favorite.
So, she and I just post a bunch of them anyway!

Wishing you a whimsical Wednesday...

Our Lil' Pumpkin Cupcake, Mmm...

Well, we tried to get a shot of us girls,
but my wings got in the way...
Our lil' Halloween Pumpkin Cupcake...
Mmm, isn't Miss M yummy?
The two Miss M's...
Mommy Melissa and Magnolia!

Mommy wasn't really interested
in spending money on a silly
baby Halloween costume for Maggs.
So, we put her in a white gown,
a pumpkin hat (thanks Hullum fam)
and some fancy black and white ballet
socks (I chose those all on my own!)
and we created our own costume~
A Halloween Pumpkin Cupcake!
