Our weekend

Apparently a BBQ is becoming a regular thing at our house. We've probably had 4 BBq's in the last 2 months. We enjoy them! Getting to spend time with great family and friends AND the convenience of not having to drive anywhere! :)
In other news.. the kiddos are getting so big! This weekend in Church Rilyn whispered to me " Mommy, I am about to fart really youd"
I couldn't help but crack up. I could barely get out, "No please don't. :)" Speaking of miss rilyn heres a few funny stories.... get ready to crack up.
She informed us she "yikes dip".
Josh as you probably know has the lovely habit of dipping. Well he called me one day while I was out running errands and asked me to buy him some and bring it to him to work. As soon as I got off the phone, nosey asked. "What did my Dad say?"
I said "He wants us to bring him his dip." And FYI- she knows exactly what dip is. Anyway she then said "I like dip."
Me: No you don't! Dip is for Daddy's, its bad for you.
Rilyn: Well.....(pause) I like cheese dip!
And Friday Aunt Sarah bug was talking to Rilyn and asked her "Whos farts stink worse your mom's or your dad's?"
Rilyn then said... "Um.. probably mine."
This happened a few months ago and I cant help but to share it. Rilyn was spending the night with Lubby. And the next morning when they woke up they were sitting in the bed and Rilyn began to look all in the covers looking for something.
Robin: What are you looking for...
Rilyn: My booger, I dropped it!
Oh- and my favorite! One day I was cradling her like a baby and I said something about her nose having no boogies in it. THEN she exclaims " Yea, dats because I been eatin them all!"
I had no idea she has been scarfing down boogers! So then we had a little no eating boogers talk.
LOL Im telling you she is a nutt! Just like all the dang Longs! lol
Shes also into 'texting'. Its crazy... how does a 2 year old know what texting is? She is always on her play phone, if this is a sign of future years, boy are we in trouble. I dont think I could afford for her to ever have a real cell phone! Anyway she always tells me and Josh to smile and pretends to take our picture. Then she says, " Yook, yall yook so cute, I gonna send it to you!." She is also into getting married. She brought me her dance tutu and I had to put it on her head like a vale because she said she was about to get married. And this weekend the neighbors dog was over at our house and she said she would really like for daisy (the neighbors dog) to kiss Toby (Sarahs dog). So they can be married. LOL
My Raigen is a crawling machine! AND she is pulling up on stuff! I cant believe my BABY will be 9 months old in September! :( She is always so happy and content. Shes perfect. If I could guarantee my next one would be just like Raigen I'd have a nother one right now! I love this little sweet pea!

WELL.. yesterday was dance.
And my Rilyn doesn't have one graceful bone in her body. For instance, they were practicing jumping over a stuffed animal. They were suppose to run on their tip toes and 'leap' over it. The first girl went and did it. And then it was Rilyns turn. Shes got the tip toes part down.. shes been walking on her tip toes since she could walk. Well... she runs on her tip toes gets to the animal, stops and with two feet dives over the animal. Me and Josh were dying laughing. Actually, the whole practice we were laughing.
Maybe we should just stick to gymnastics...

1st Day of Dance class!

Yesterday we ventured to Lufkin, just us girls, to do some shopping for Rilyns dance class outfit. Black leotard, pink ballet shoes, and a pink tutu! She looks adorable! I can not wait to see how she does. Especially since she "practiced" ALL night. She almost fell asleep fully dressed in her dance outfit, shoes and all. I finally talked her into putting on her jammies though.
My baby is getting so big.... :(
You'll just have to wait for a picture...:)

Diaper Monkeys 2010.

Rilyn's gymnastic class picture!

My Raigie has roseola!

First she was running a fever from cutting teeth. The fever only lasted a couple of days. but following the fever this ugly rash appeared! She looks horrible. :( Poor baby. AND to top it off there is nothing you can do for the rash! It has to run its course (its a virus). It can last a couple of days or up to 2 weeks! :( The good news is the rash does NOT itch or hurt. So, other than looking like a cheetah she is perfectly normal. And this morning when she woke up it is already starting to go away! YAY!

A BBQ, Chuckie Cheese, and More!

Saturday we had a nice BBQ. Josh was super excited because he made is own rub for his brisket. It was his 1st time to ever cook at brisket. He cooked it all night Friday night and it was the bomb! Rachel showed up at the house with a wig and told us all she had gotten her hair cut. It was cute on her and she fooled me! LOL SO ofcourse all of us had to try it on! Be prepared to laugh!

Here is Rachel in the wig playing cards.

A group of us played 31. It was fun. My mom and dad won all the money though! :(

LOL Here is Josh in the wig. He just had to have a poney tail.... He concentrating playing cards.
