Baby girl is 15 months and pure joy. Her favorite word to say is "happy", I think that says a lot about her personality. Then again she's also mastered "nah-nah!" (no-no) and "naughty". It's crazy how much she's talking and repeating. Some of my other favorites are "day-dew" (thank you), "hey suz" and another one of her favorites "meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"  She screams this when she wants something. She's a dancing queen and shoulder shrugs the second she hears music, likes to show off her tricks like walking backwards, is starting to throw little tantrums, is into everything and can make our house look like a tornado rolled through in seconds.

Trimming the tree

"We" decorated (then I might have redecorated once the boys were in bed) after Emmie was in bed. She woke up and was enamored with the tree and all things glittery, bright and unfortunately breakable. She can't get enough of staring at it and picking out the perfect ornaments to yank off.

Grandparent's Day @ school.

Winter Wonderland (for a day)...

We got our first snow a couple Fridays ago and the boys couldn't wait to get outside to play in it. The day that it first snowed, Ian's 1 hour commute turned into a 4 hour commute (on his day off, non the less) so the boys patiently waited until the next morning to go out and play since it was too late when he got home. They were dressed and out the door before 8 a.m. Little miss even joined in on the fun.

Dancing queen.

Ahhhhhh, I can't even handle this little one. She loves to dance, this is a mild version. As soon as she hears music shes starts booty shaking, shuffling, waving her hands in the air, yelling. Love!
And her sweet little voice (turn up your volume, for some reason it's really quiet)...

Say Cheese

1st grade

The great tree hunt.

We got an early jump on the Christmas tree hunt this year and went up to Shelton's tree farm last weekend to pick one out (picking up later this month). It was such a gorgeous day, so different than year's past when we go up later in the month and the kids are freezing, muddy, wet, etc.  
the one.
ending the day with some Leavenworth fun.
