We had been trying to potty train Cailey for what seemed like forever. When we got back from TX, we just took away the diapers and said we had no more. Amazing to us, this worked! Daddy brought her home flowers to celebrate that she was a big girl.

While in Texas, we tried to see all we could. Friday night, our last night there, we spent the evening with mommy's aunt, uncles, cousin, and grandmother. Half of the family was in Texas. After some yummy BBQ, the guys played poker, while the girls played WII (as long as they didn't sit to far away :) ) and dominos ( Aunt Pam cheats .... ask anyone :) j/k). A very nice end, to a very relaxing trip.
While in Texas, grandpa and grandma wanted to take the girls to build a bear to celebrate both of their birthdays. We had never visited build a bear before, so this was a first for our family. Both girls chose puppy dogs. Reece helped stuff it and put the heart inside while Cailey cried because she didn't like the noise the machine made. She did, however, warm up the heart before it was placed into her dog. After the animals were all stitched up and ready to go, the girls gave them a "bath" and then dressed them. Reece's puppy got a cupcake shirt and that eventually became her name, Cupcake. Caileys got a very cute Tinkerbell outfit and corresponding name, Tinkerbelle.
