Little Miss really likes her smoothies

Yesterday afternoon before nap time I decided to make some smoothies.
Last time we went shopping I got the premade smoothies packages.
All you have to do is add milk and then blend it.

Since the smoothies are so thick they cant be put into the girls sippy cups.
So I put them in regular cups.  Kaylee does ok drinking out of a cup and doesn't make to much of a mess.
But Little Miss also gets a cup and I usually hold it for her and she drinks it.
Yesterday we had a little bit left in there and I decided to stop doing it for her and let her do it.
I knew by letting her do this that she could potentially make a huge mess, which usually I'm against.
But I said what the heck, just go with it and let her do it.
She would hold it up to her mouth but wouldn't lean her back so she wasn't getting anything.
Then she went to take a drink leaning her head back and it spilt, it got on her and all over the table.
Usually after this happens I would get upset at myself for letting her do and the mess that I would have to clean up.  But yesterday I was trying to be in the moment and have fun with it.  She played in it for a few minutes before my OCD kicked in and I had to go clean her off.

On a different note:  I've decided to start watermarking all my pictures I put on here.
After reading a story Becky at From Mrs. to Mama posted about someone taking her pictures of her sweet daughter and trying to pass her off as her's and taking some of her other pictures.  After reading this it makes you think.  Someone could be taking and using my pictures and I would have no clue.  I had a problem with this on a different website.  Someone informed me that someone had taken my picture and was using a picture of my Kaylee to try and pass her off as theres.    So instead of wondering all the time if someone is using pictures of my girls to try and pass them off as there's.  So I think to keep the safety of my pictures I'm going to watermark them.  I would rather be safe then sorry.

Yesterday after Jason got home from work he showered and changed and we headed to his mom's for St. Patrick's Day dinner.  The girls were excited to see Grandma and Grandpa since it had been a week.  We helped out making dinner while the girls watched a movie.
After we ate dinner (corn beef and cabbage with corn bread muffins).  All the older cousins and Jason's moms friends kids were all outside running around and the girls wanted to go play too.

So we went outside to play for a little bit.
The girls had a good time running around.  We didn't stay outside long cause it was cold.
The girls enjoyed some dessert and then we made our rounds saying good bye to everyone.
We got home I put the girls to bed and I watched Dancing with the Stars.


  1. Shes still so cute! Even with a messy smoothy look :)

  2. The smoothies look yummy!

    I've thought about watermarking before because I've heard similiar stories...but I guess I just think that anyone who goes to the trouble to do that would probably easily jsut crop out the watermark and still use the pictures if they wanted to. And I don't want to put a watermark over the girls' face in every picture because then that will drive me crazy when I print the blog to use as their baby book. I guess if someone thinks my kid is cute enough to pretend she's their own then I'll take it as a compliment lol.

  3. I'm with you on the watermarking after reading Mrs. to Mama too! Scary!

    Keira looked like she had a blast being a "big girl" with her smoothie:)

  4. I love the pictures of Keira all messy! I'm glad i'm not the only one that takes those kind of pictures. My husband is always asking me why i'm taking photos of Emma with food all over her!

    I missed dancing with the stars, but I have it on DVR. Emma loovesss watching them dance, so usually I tape it and I watch it with her =)

  5. Oh my! I had never heard of people doing that. I have often thought about marking my photos, but I am not sure how you do that.
