One Year old Pictures

I love how Emeri's 1 year old pictures turned out! They got so many good ones! I just love this baby girl so much. I'm also thankful for to my husband for putting up with my picture obsession, but seriously how can you let this moment pass by without getting pictures?! Turning 1 year old is a big deal in my book! I would say I'm sorry for the picture overload, but I'm not! =)
This was just a few days shy of her actual birthday. She was standing and crawling but not walking yet.

So moving is EXHAUSTING! I'm in awe of those people that move all the the time because seriously it is NOT easy! We had most of it boxed up and ready to go before moving day and there was still so much to do! Josh had also moved the dog kennels and our play set a few days before with the help of some friends which was quite the chore.
 My parents came up Friday morning as well as Josh's Mom. We got pretty much everything moved that Friday and then Saturday Ryan & Kael came to help for a few hours. There were still a few beds and furniture to move and then of course cleaning. It's just crazy how much crap you accumulate!
I had forgot to pack pj's and stuff for my girls Friday night, so we borrowed some shirts from our boy cousins to sleep in! We are grateful for family and friends that took the time to come and help, and watch our kids here and there, we couldn't have done it without them.
Oh and then about 3 weeks later, we emptied out our storage unit that we had rented for a few months, which took 3 trips down and back!
SO glad to be done moving, for now =)

 About a week before moving day, Emeri was my little helper!

They slept on one mattress in their room for their last night

 The next morning- looking a little rough ha ha

 Right before we left for good!

Second Grade

*August 25th, 2015* 

Alli started 2nd grade at a new school, which actually started a few days before we moved out. We had to get up super early and drive her which took about an hour in traffic and then I would turn around and drive home to pack and then drive up again to pick her up! It was craziness for about 4 days until we were moved in later that week. 
She looked so darling for her first day and was SO excited and a titch nervous to be going to a new school where she didn't know a single person.The first day she had made two friends and liked her new teacher. She is such an amazing girl and I love her bold and brave little self!

Dirt Eater

*August19, 2015*
This was one afternoon when i was packing. I sat Emeri out in the back yard to play for a minute and next thing i knew she was eating dirt! You know what they say, a little dirt won't hurt...I sure hope that's true! She was pretty happy about it all though.
