And to Chick-Fil-A...

After fun in the park. We worked up an appetite so we headed over to Chick-Fil-A. Of course the girls wanted to play some more. They were too cute. Thank you Ally & Kim for such a fun day. We must do it again soon!

Park Playdate!

Today we met Kim & Ally for a park playdate at Paradise Park in Clermont. It is such a fun park! Lots of slides and fun little areas. Payten had a blast. Ally wasn't too sure at first but then started exploring. I'm sure by our next visit Payten & Ally will be running all over.

Dare devil Payten trying all the "BIG" slides!

Ally bouncing on the elephant!

Look who is going down backwards!

She was determined to climb up this with the bigger kids.

Playing in the playhouse! Crazy girl!

Finally a video!

I finally got it to work! It's a few weeks old but hey I got one up. I love this new video camera. Now all the distant family can see our precious little girls grow and see the new things they are learning :-) Hope you like the new video's Mom & Dad Hogan.

Comparison Day 4 - The Chubbs

Okay now I am really starting to see the difference in Payten and Camryn. The left photo was taken of Payten at 4 1/2 months old and the right one is of Camryn at 5 1/2 months old. Payten was definitely a lot chubbier then Camryn. And their faces don't look anything alike. Crazy! Maybe one is the mailman's baby?.... Just kidding :-)

My New Kicks!

Check out my new kicks! I can't wait to break them in tonight! Let's hope their comfy. Anything has to be better then my old running shoes. They are getting thrown in the garbage as I speak :-)

Just another Monday...

Why is it that Monday's come so quick? Monday-Friday's drag but then Saturday and Sunday just fly by. I am sure its because our weekends are full of fun and the weekdays consist of work and boring stuff. Haha. I think we need to do something about that. If the lottery would just come through for me :-)

Not too much going on around here. Sean got the results to his tests and the cyst is benign, thank goodness. That was a huge relief for us. Camryn is miss babbles all the time now. I think shes even more vocal then Payten. Payten is talking up a storm these days and says lots of new words and sayings. My favorites...
* Momma, I need a hug.
* Dada, I need some kisses.
* Night night Sissy, luv you.
* Corgy, Roxy, where are you?

She is too cute! Although her multiple attitudes are quite interesting. I am hoping these terrible two's don't last too long. Payten is signed up to start pre-school in the fall. She will be going three days a week, Mon/Wed/Fri. We are looking forward to her having some more one on one time with kids her own age. And will allow me some one on one time with Camryn.

I do need to finish up my comparison week. So stay tuned to some more posts. It may be over the matter of a few weeks but I promise more are coming :-)

Happy Monday!

Easter Egg Decorating

This weekend was full of activities, fun ones too! This was Payten's first time dying Easter eggs and she had a blast. She was first a little hesitant about getting her hands dirty but once she saw how much fun it was she dove right in. Her favorite part was putting the "stickies" on herself. :-)

Daddy and Payten getting ready to color the first egg

Wow, green!

Oh my goodness Dad, I don't know if that is the right color

Our eggs in progress

Oooo, I love it!

Uh oh, my hands are BLUE!

Wagon Fun!!

Wagon fun and tractor fun! Daddy was putting away the tractors and Payten wanted to catch a ride on the "John Deere". Haha. The weather was beautiful today so we took the girls on a stroll in their wagon. Camryn absolutely loved it and of course half way through Payten wanted to walk, ahh the joys of 2 year olds :-) I wish we could have this weather everyday!

Egg Hunt!

The town of Lady Lake held their 3rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Payten had a blast. Got lots of eggs filled with goodies. They had a ton of actives and lots of free giveaways. Especially free Chick Fil-A coupons. So of course after the festival we headed over there for some lunch. We definitely look forward to this event next year!

Payten checking out the eggs!

Dad, where are all the eggs?

Payten and her "sissy"

The Cow!!

Hula Hoop fun!

Comparison Day 3 - 1st Visit to Disney

The girls 1st time to Disney. Payten's first trip to Magic Kingdom was in Nomember 2008, she was 9 months old. Camryn's 1st trip was at 2 1/2 months old. Of course neither will be able to remember but it sure was fun and we have lots of photos to remember it by. :-)

Since this is a crazy week with lots of birthdays and events, I am going to finish up my Comparsion of the girls til next week. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Comparison Day 2 - 5 Months Old

I have been meaning to do a comparison for a few weeks of the girls at this age. Payten is on the left at 5 months and on the right is Camryn. Payten sure was a chunker compared to Camryn. It's amazing how different they look.

Update: Sean's Surgery

Sean's surgery went well. He is recovering just fine. He is up and about, and enjoying time with the girls. Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes.

Comparsion Week - Day 1

I have decided I am going to do a comparison week of the girls. Each day we'll do side by side pictures of certain ages. I love looking back to see if they look alike or just how much they have grown.

Today's - Santa Visit/Easter Bunny Visit
With only being 3 months ago, look how much both girls have changed! That is crazy!

Rainy/Lazy Sunday

Since today is a rainy day we decided to boycott clothes and just hang in our jammies all day! I think we need more days like this :-)

Do the Bunny Hop.. Hop Hop Hop

We went to visit the Easter bunny this weekend. Camryn of course was all smiles and Payten was a bit unsure. But compared to all the other kids we saw she did AWESOME! The Easter bunny will be here before we know it. I wonder what kind of goodies he'll bring this year. :-)

Playing is hard work...

I walked away for two seconds and this is what I came back to! Hysterical! Payten never fell asleep during play time.

Kiss me I'm Irish!

A little late with the photos but hey it's better late then never :-) I love my little Irish girls!

New Brown Clutch!

I got such an awesome deal on this Nine West Brown Clutch. $14.99/shipped! I can't wait to get it in the mail!!! Thanks to!!!

New Video Camera - A++

I am loving my new video camera! We ordered it a few weeks ago, after Sean dropping our other one on the floor the day of Christmas :-( And I finally had a chance to use it this week and it is awesome! I wish I would have bought this sooner. It is a Canon FS200 Flash Memory. I am hoping I get to upload a new little clip of Payten. It's nothing too exciting but I was just happy I got to use it :-) There will be lots of new blog posts with video's :-)

Night #2 = Success!

Payten made it through another night in her Big Girl bed. She slept through the night and did it without her pacifier. Now that is 5 sleeps with no pacifier. YAY! I am hoping she kicked that habit for good! We're half way through the week.. thank goodness! Come on weekend!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Big Girl Bed!

Look who is in a big girl bed??? It's not totally converted but we figured we would try the toddler bed first, and then transition into the full bed. Thank you Ellison family for letting us borrow your bed rail until we order ours. :-)
