Happenings....It's been awhile!

This little car is her current fav!  She loves sitting in it, thinking she's a big kid.

A poor picture (taken with my phone) but it's a classic - she's clearly a third kid.  I'll leave her in the living room to play with the other two and more likely than not they will include her in whatever they're playing.  I think they like the fact that whatever they decide to do with her is completely fine with her.  There are never any arguments.

 Last Saturday we took the kids cherry picking.  John had never gone before (gasp!).  

We ended up picking 11 pounds of cherries!  I'm so thankful for my dehydrator, as I was able to immediately dry about five pounds of them.  


John and I took the kids to see the ballet Cinderella.  I got the girls all dolled up in their pretty dresses and posed them outside for pictures. 

Maggie did surprisingly well sitting through the ballet, considering it was over 90 minutes long.

This was the third fine arts performance we took the kids to this year.  We saw Stone Soup, Snow White, and Cinderella.

Early Birthday Party

Grandma and Grandpa were over a few weeks ago and we decided to celebrate the kids' birthdays early.  Super early.  But they were okay with that.  Presents and cake - who can say no?

I can't believe my little baby is going to be a year old in a few short days!  She's still small, but she's learning to crawl now and can stand up against furniture. 

William won't be six for a few more months yet but he did get to open some presents as well.

She tried and tried but simply could not get the candle to blow out.
