two little big girls

Two years ago today we met these little ladies for the first time. 
Our lives have been all sorts of crazy but we wouldn't trade it for the world. 
Happy second birthday to my favorites, Amelia and Emma!

P is for Presents

Opening presents was a lot of fun this year. Mom kinda got caught up in the moment and only took a few pictures (Sorry!!). The girls were very lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people that love them dearly. Thanks to everyone for giving my girls a great afternoon and more importantly a great two years! They are already two?!?!?!
Our very first soccer ball! 
And a new bowling set too! 
Emily was such a great helper!
A new giraffe backpack - perfect for hoarding!!!
Lots of new bath toys, and soaps, and crayons. And even a new Elmo towel!
Uncle Joe, what's in this huge box?

That smile sums up their entire day!!

Happy Birthday Old Man

Happy Birthday to the best Dad two little girls could ask for! 
Thanks for teaching us how to laugh like Crusty the Clown, the importance of family, 
how to cross our legs and arms while sleeping, to love any sport even if it's boring, 
and to sit and appreciate a good baseball game... even if we only sit still for five seconds. 
We love you very much, Happy Birthday Daddy!

Time for a Great Visit

Great Grandma Joyce and Great Grandpa Del drove all the way from Florida to visit with family. We were very excited to hear of their trip and even more excited that we were one of their stops. We had a great afternoon spending time with great people. Thank you for a great day!!

I'll give you kisses, and hugs, and chewed up pickles. That's love!
