A boy amongst us!

So, it appears the "Fahring" name will continue! After going to the doctor this morning, Todd and I learned our newest addition will be a little boy. No definite names yet. Too much pressure to come up with something creative like the girls! Nonetheless, we are excited and anxious to experience a boy!

Burt's Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday we took the girls to Burt's Pumpkin Patch. It was awesome! I could not believe all the pumpkins and the different varieties. The pictures turned out awesome! I think we took too many... wait is that possible???

Birthday Season has begun!

So as you know the Fall months are very crazy! All of our birthdays are within a month and a half of each other!

Today we started the first of 3 weeks of celebration with the girls! We had Hollis' party at school with her new friends!

Tomorrow is Hollis' actual birthday and Todd is taking the day off (part of our annual tradition) for us to spend time with just Hollis. We are taking her to the Aquarium. She is going to have a blast!

Next weekend we are doing a combined party for both of the girls and then the following weekend is Allyn's actual birthday! CRAZINESS!!!

Here are a few pictures from the school party!

Where to Start?

First, yes we are alive!
Second, we have been VERY busy... well I have been busy so as a result the blog does not get updated!

What is keeping me busy these days? Well, teaching online and doing development work for Gwinnett County is causing me to lose sleep! Hopefully, in the next week I will be done with the development stuff and return some normalcy back to our lives! I had been sewing like a sweat shop worker, but have had to take a break and push back a lot of orders in hopes of getting my school work done! And, the girls always have me going in several directions!

We had so many changes to our lives since my last post. We had a great summer full of swimming and travel! The girls had a blast and they are both swimming. That makes for a nervous mama at the pool, but luckily they did not give me too much of a scare and we were able to go lots during the day when Todd was at work!

We are slowly being able to leak out our big secret we have had to keep for too many weeks. We are expecting baby #3 in March! We are very excited, but as you can imagine it will me a lot of changes around the house to get back into baby mode! We have not told the girls anything yet, because Allyn would ask every day if today was the day she was going to have a baby! I guess we will wait until we know what it is before we let them know we are going to rock their world!!

Last Tuesday, both Allyn and Hollis started preschool! They LOVE it... and so do I! It is just nice to have a quiet house for a few hours a day!

Well, there is no way I can possibly post pictures from March till now so I am just going to post a few beach pictures and some start of school pictures!

I promise to be better about posting!
I would like to set a goal of 30, 60 or 100 days of posting, but don't want to let you down when I fail!
Baby steps for now.....

Hollis' picture on Beautiful Baby Contest

I am stopped frequently and told that Hollis is just beautiful and how she has gorgeous eyes.
Well, this year I submitted her picture to Live with Regis and Kelly's Beautiful Baby Contest.
I have not heard anything... not like I was anxiously waiting by the phone or anything, but I did go to the website just to see when the Beautiful Baby week was. There was a gallery of pictures that had been submitted and I found her!!
Take a look! This might be all that comes of it... but at least it can be her claim to fame for now!! :)

Oh Geez... Not again!

Snow again! Are you sure we still live in Georgia!?!?

Monday, February 15, 2010


I guess the old wife's tale of if snow is on the ground longer than three days it will snow again, must be true!

We had a great time in the snow! Here are some pictures of the girls and pictures of trees and such!

Hollis' First Haircut!

Well we did it! We cut off the rat tail/mullet that Hollis was sporting! We took her to Pigtails and Crewcuts this morning. It was way overdue, but of course I was stalling doing it because I hate cuting off that baby hair. She was not so sure at first but then got better once she got a sucker and animal crackers and watched a movie. Geez... how spoiled!

Hollis has extremely curly hair and I was so scared to cut it myself. I know that cutting curly hair is A LOT different than cutting straight hair so we left it to the professionals and I must say they did an awesome job!

You can see from the pictures just how curly her hair really is. No one ever believes us because it does not look that way normally. I guess they get matted down and go away when she sleeps. The lady told me how to "style" her hair to keep the curls from falling throughout the day! Can you believe I got a lesson on how to style a one and a half year old's hair?!?!?! Did I mentioned spoiled? I guess this is what I get with two girls! Ha!!

Snow Day 2010

Snow Day!!!

We had such a great time playing in the first snow of the new year... well maybe the first and only snow of this year!

It was especially fun because Todd was home from work!

It was so cold outside we were only able to stay outside for just a little bit and the roads were so slick we kept falling down!! The girls did not like this!!!

The worst part was we were snowed/iced into our neighborhood until Sunday. That made for a little bit of stir craziness!

Nonetheless, we had a great time will it lasted!!

Christmas 2009

The Christmas season was such an incredible time at our house this year!

Both Allyn and Hollis are at such a wonderful age to understand Christmas and seeing excitement through their eyes is priceless!

This year, we adopted an Elf on the Shelf. Allyn named him Rick. Rick was quite the mischievous elf. Every night getting in to stuff around the house. The girls would wake in the morning with the anticipation of what Rick had done the night before! Too fun!

We were able to spend some time with my dad which I know him and the girls both enjoyed. Then we had our big family gathering at our house the next day. It was fun to have all our family in our house! Kids were every where and the house was a wreak when everybody left, but it was great!

Christmas Eve, we tried to keep some tradition going and went to church at North Metro with Dianne. Then instead of going to her house for dinner she headed up to our house for our traditional steak dinner. We made cupcakes and sang happy birthday to Jesus. Allyn got a kick out of doing this since they really worked hard at instilling this message at church and school. Dianne spent the night Christmas Eve night and was able to celebrate Christmas morning with us. The girls were so excited!!! Around lunch my mom, Mark, Abbi and grandparents stopped by to see what Santa brought.

The big request from Santa was a Disney Princess car which he delivered. The girls LOVE it!!!!! Allyn has really gotten good at steering and driving! Hollis sits as a passenger and waves like a pageant queen to all the cars that drive by! Oh Geez!!!!!

Allyn's 1st Dentist Visit

In October I took Allyn to the dentist for the first time! She did great!
Dentist said her teeth looked great!

My Get-a-way trip to NYC!

For my birthday, Todd allowed me to fly away to New York to visit my best friend Tyler.

A trip to New York was something I have always wanted to do and it was high time for a visit to see my friend!

We had an absolutely blast! The weekend went way too fast!

I cannot wait to go again!


We had an awesome Thanksgiving.

Allyn had a program and feast at school. We practiced and practiced and she was so good at singing the songs and then wouldn't you know when the curtain opened she stood there in silence. Oh well!!

We then headed to the lake for the Thanksgiving weekend! So much fun!!

Halloween 2009

We had a great Halloween season! We kicked it off with a trip to Uncle Shuck's pumpkin patch and then some trick-o-treating with the Holland family!!

Hollis Turns 1

Can you believe our sweet Hollis is one!! (Well actually, she is almost 18 months now... but whatever!)
Here are pictures from her birthday!!

Allyn's 3rd Birthday

Here is our Big Girl turning 3!!!!

For her birthday Todd and I took her to Baby Land General to pick out a real Cabbage Patch Kid. Her baby's name is Mary Allyn. We were able to see a baby be born from Mother Cabbage. It was named after Allyn and the other little girls that were present at the delivery.

Unfortunately, this baby was a little too expensive to adopt, we compromised on another one.
It was awesome! She had such a blast.
We also had a party for her at school with all her school friends!!
