Baby Legs

Is there anything more cute and delicious than chubby soft baby legs? The answer is no. Emeri is starting to pack on some rolls in all the right places! I LOVE baby legs, they are the absolute best....all those rolls and creases. My favorite! I love when they reach for their little toes too, so cute! I never want to forget these cute little chubba-lubs.

Slumber Party!

Last weekend my girls had a sleepover with their favorite local cousins. Alli had slept over at their house a couple times so it was our turn to host. We did facial tattoos, movie and treats and then it was bed time. The plan was to sleep in Josh hunting blind, but after about 20 minutes they decided to move to the girls room. So we had two kids per twin bed and Kael slept on the floor. The big kids fell asleep pretty quick and the two littles fell asleep after about 2 hours. Not going to lie it was a little chaotic here and there but we all survived =) We had some rearranging going for awhile and one awakening in the middle of the night but other than that they did great.They have a great time when they get together.

Three Year Pictures

I had a mini session set up for Haven's three year pictures with a photographer that fell through. Luckily, my sister got a new lens for her camera and was willing to test it out for us. She did awesome and saved the day- thanks Amb! Love how these turned out. Here is our super cute THREE year old with her beautiful blue eyes and cute little face...

Love her scrunchy nose she sometimes does 
 




It was FREEZING!

First Dance Class

Haven started dance! I don't think there is anything cuter than little girls in dance. It feels like just yesterday I was putting Alli in her first dance class and now here we are with Haven! She was so excited to go, but when we got their she was so nervous and mostly just watched class. During that week at home she would show us all of stretches and dance moves she learned, so I know she liked it. Week two she did a little better and actually participated for some of the class. I'm proud of her for being so brave and trying something new! She makes a super cute little dancer!

P.S. I'm hoping to take more pictures with our DSLR camera this year. Most of my pictures this year are from my phone and it's just not the same.  Convenient yes, but the quality just isn't the same. I thought I lost my camera a couple weeks ago, but I finally found it- hallelujah! So here's to hoping for more pictures in general and more pictures with our camera.
