Fun, Fun, Fun!

Pictures, pictures, pictures. 

Ready for church!

Fun desserts!

These pictures are from last weekend when Jay's parents were here and so kindly watch the girls for us!

Cara & I made a yummy dinner this week!

Apparently Emma needed a pillow & blanket to watch her movie.

Emma snapping pictures :)

This week we went to a place that let's kids play on swing sets they are selling. It was so fun for the kids!

Oakley & Emma.

Emerson & Emma.

A little stubborn.....

Emma & Mason.
We are done with Kai Ling's study! As sad as it is to be done, I think Lily appreciates that we are. As you can see in the picture below. 
But, Lily now weighs 16 lbs 3 oz & has 28% body fat.

Last, this lovely man and his beautiful mom hang out with us at least once a week. For those of you who don't know, Bowen and Lily are 5 days apart and have a lot of similarities. We love having them over and are excited to watch them grow up together!

6 months old!!!

2 Nights Out in A Row!

This past weekend, I was able to get out of the house 2 nights in a row without children!!! 
It was the strangest feeling as I don't spend a lot of time apart from them. 

Night #1
Friday night was our church's annual Mom's Night Out. All of the moms invite other moms to go out to eat, have desserts, swim, spend the night, and swim some more, all without children! This year I was able to go to the dinner portion of the night. I feel so blessed to call so many of the women who attended my wonderful, great, personal friends. They are the woman who get me through the day to day life of raising kids. I only got 1 picture from that night, but I think it's a great one! This woman knows me soooo well :)

Our faces are a little red because this was the 6th attempt to take a picture. The first 5 were by a waiter who couldn't figure the camera out; we gave up and asked a woman who was eating. Here's to Try #6!

Night #2
Jay's work holiday party was Saturday night. This year it was in Des Moines at the Marriot. We had such a wonderful time. I was able to catch up with some of his co-workers that I know and hear a lot about and also meet a lot of new faces! We were so blessed to have Jay's parents come down and take care of the girls and put them to bed so we were able to attend the party. 
Here's to the man who works so hard so I can stay at home. 
I love you!

When You Have 2 Cameras....

I haven't uploaded pictures from my old camera in a while. 

Santa getting his picture taken.
 Apparently, Santa was potty training too.

Helping with breakfast.

Love this face.

What a great big sister.


Emma took this picture. No joke. Photographer in training!
The next few pictures are from Emma's birthday extravaganza. 

 We FINALLY got together with a good friend Melita and her kids and Michelle and her kiddos. We've been trying to get together since October! We were able to see Melita's new house, and it's a dream. So beautiful!
Lunch time!

These 2 are hilarious together.


Emma also took this picture!!!

Hanging out on a snow day!

Love these girls!

Emma snapping pictures of Auntie Cara.

Pure talent.
We made cloud sand. My friend Meg has made this with her kids and said it kept them busy for hours. Emma sat for 50 minutes and played with it!!!!

I'll leave you with some giggles.
