Sam turns 5!

Just about six years ago we started praying for little boy to join our family and bless us and his big sister.  Little did we know, then, what a big blessing he would...

We love you Sammy-ka-blammy!

Arbor Day

Addie and her buddy in class got chosen to read a poem for the school during Arbor Day.  Her teacher  is so sweet and sent us this pic and said she "rocked it."

Children's museum

I always say our children's museum is underwhelming... But I do love when they have their special sand exhibit...

Ukrainian Egg

My sweet aide at school made me a legit Ukrainian egg for Easter!  Isn't it gorgeous?

Toddler Beds 7, Mommy 0

I knew the transition from crib to toddler bed was going to be hard.   Really hard with twins.  And I was right.  The girls were falling climbing out of their beds too often to not take down the cribs.
Goodbye sweet cribs.
Curse you toddler beds with your easy escape routes and inviting fun.  You have stolen naptime and made my little ladies crazy by 5pm.  I feel like one toddler eventually just gets tired and gives into naptime (some days) but twins have an instant playmate.  So after failed nap #4 in the toddler beds I might have just moved out Olivia.  Now I hear Eliza yelling,
"Oliiiiiivia.....Where are youooooooo?  I neeeeeeed you!?"
Praise the Lord bedtime has been smoother....but this naptime drama is killing me!
Praying for boredom to set in soon....

Thanks Mom!

My pinterest ideas + my mom's skills might be dangerous! Thanks mom! I love my new bunny.
My friend Jackie pointed out I should really give some more details so she could recreate the project herself.  It appears you need two grapevine slightly smaller than the other.  They also sell the same material in a "roping" design.  Mom used that to fashion the ears and then wired them to the top wreath!  Looks awesome, right?

Mikayla turns 5

How is it possible that my little tiny niece is already 5?

It was a fairy party and clearly Aunt Emily provided fairy wings for all the girls...
which might have been the best day ever...

Happy birthday to my first niece!
