Let me tell you about our Livi girl...


My angel baby turned two years old August 19th! For her birthday she had some of her friends over for a tea party, and let me just tell you that it was precious! It was unbelievably sweet how grownup they acted while they sat at the table and ate their treats. Olivia had a great time playing with her friends and eating her beautiful pink cake! After snacks the girls played and had their nails painted. I am so thankful to have this sweet little girl to liven up our lives!

Olivia, at two years old you love to play with your babies, have your nails painted, watch Mickey Mouse, get pushed in the swing, be read to, and sing song after song after song. Your favorite books are 'Itsy Bitsy Spider' and 'Rain Drop Plop.' You sing to yourself all the time. I think sometimes you make the songs up as you go along. Your favorite things to say are "like this!" "yeah," and "hey mommy". I crack up when you give your sideway smile and when you pretend to be asleep. You bring so much joy to our family and we love you so very much! Happy Birthday to you baby girl!



Ashley did a great job on the cake!


Check out these cuties! I love Sadie in her hat.




Cate got the best job.

Time for a Puppy!

It's the middle of August and I seem to have lost my motivation. I think maybe it was the extreme heat for weeks on end that got me. I sure love my sweet kids, but I am seriously missing preschool! I am sad to see the summer end, but will enjoy having a few hours a week of sanity. Their first day back will be August 29th. I think everyone in our house is ready! In the last few weeks we have had a few significant changes including a new puppy and moving Olivia into a toddler bed.

Meet June! She's 9 weeks old.


Now meet her nemesis...


Livi likes to hang out in June's bed...June does not appreciate it.


On a side not, this is what colored bubbles will do, so watch out!


The blankets on the floor are Bennett's version of a fort which makes me think he misunderstood the concept of a fort entirely.


My angel baby in her new bed. She likes to sleep with 3 blankets, her lovie, several babies, her pink puppy and a horse. She couldn't be more different than her brother who has never needed anything special to sleep with. I tried so hard to get him to attach to a blanket or something, but he refused.

My baby girl will be 2 years old in one week! Unbelievably bitter sweet!
