The T&E Times

I'm hoping to get back on track soon with the story of how the Vaf and I started dating, but for now I have way too many pictures on my camera! This past week has been a bit of a blur (due largely to the biggest teething situation the girls have ever faced), but here's a look at some of the highlights.
Where one is, the other must be!

They methodically took out each toy from this box and then climbed inside together.

I said it must remind them of their good old days.

See no evil, hear no evil? Really this is what they did when playing Peekaboo the other day! Tamsie apparently thinks you play Peekaboo by covering up your ears! 
Carissa and Cliff came to visit last week... SO much fun, as always!!!

Tamsie riding her horsey that Papa Herbie surprised her with last weekend! They looove their rocking horses!!

Tams being cute

Saturday morning with their Daddy... Evie looks maximally comfortable here, doesn't she?

Saturday night we took the girls downtown for a little bit before meeting up with my parents for dinner at Molly's. This was the view from the parking garage... not bad, huh? :)

Walking the girls around the Peabody lobby. They love it because there are, of course, ducks everywhere -- including these rubber ducks in a display case! The pianist really took a liking to T&E and played a snazzy version of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" for them. 
Tamsie giggling at dinner at Molly's Saturday night. They split their first non-Chick-fil-A kids' meal item: a cheese quesadilla! They also had ice cream for dessert for the first time ever, and it was a huge hit. Tamsie kept smiling and saying, "Mmmmmm!" very dramatically.
Chris and Evangelyn, who is truly enjoying her night on the town
After dinner, Mom was holding Tamsie, who was hugging her as tightly as she could. It was pretty cute.

Sunday morning we went to see Cliff get dedicated at his church! I know this is hard to see, but such are the wonders of iPhones at times like these. You can see Carissa and Roy up there with Cliff, who did an outstanding job being sweet, as always!

With Roy's mom (and dad in the background... somehow he must have missed the memo that it was picture time!)

After church, we all went out to eat at Red Robin, where we ordered the girls' meals from the kids' menu for the second time! They also attempted coloring for the first time, as Tamsie demonstrates here.

Evie also enjoyed scribbling with the crayon, as well as picking it up and dropping it. It's the little things, y'all.
One other major development this week: Tamsie went back for her kidney check-up. She had another ultrasound, and this one made it look like the situation has gotten even worse. The doctor is more sure than ever that surgery will take place around her second birthday. For now, we'll wait three months and repeat the scan. If it still looks like it's on a downward slope, she'll have to go back in for another VCUG (the big test she really hates), which we had hoped to delay until November. So all of that to say, we're praying in faith for surprisingly good results this next time she goes in!

Well that's all for today. Hope your Monday is off to a great start!
