Baby #4 is a...

We are over the moon with excitement that we will be adding a little boy to our family! We were happy and overjoyed that that the baby was healthy during the ultrasound and decided to find out if baby was indeed a boy like I was predicting! We would of been over the moon for another little lady, all babies are blessings. There is just a different excitement for something new and different!! So bring on the blue, trucks and cars, and everything else that comes with little boys!!

Our Big Girls

Memories of Summer

Summer is ending and Fall is on it's way! We had a great summer full of fun! We had many backyard fires with roasting marshmallows and s'mores. Went to a few baseball games and enjoyed the ball park food! We went to the cabin and fished, went to the beach a few times, and fished some more. The girls really enjoyed fishing with Daddy and also with Papa and Nana. The big girls and Daddy camped in the backyard in a tent, a first ever for both of them. They became great friends with our next door neighbors, and enjoy spending many hours playing! Memories to cherish forever.

Rainy Weekend

We started off the rainy weekend with a trip to the museum. The girls had fun making the layout to this house and adding in the furniture.

 Penelope went to play with the building blocks
 Daphanie putting the bathroom together
 We then moved over to the house. Daphanie was washing and putting away all the dishes.
 You can see how happy Penelope is here by the dimple in her cheek, she loved wash wash washing the peaches!
 So proud of her clean peaches
 Lilly playing some lovely music
 Lilly very proud of her block tower! After the museum we went to rent the movie The Lorax. We have never read the book so I really had no idea what it was going to be about, but it was great. The story is great, just like all of Dr. Suess'  work.
I had some saved boxes from our move (over a year ago). I knew I wanted to build something out of them someday and since it was a rainy weekend we went at it. We talked it over and decided that we wanted some windows that you could open and close and some that just stayed open. They wanted points at the top just like a crown. We started to paint it just pink and yellow, but ran out of those colors and added blue into the mix too! It has already gotten hours of play!

Homemade Pizza

The girls have just started to love pizza, before they would pick it a part and only really eat the cheese. I found they really love it more when they make it themselves! I found a great dough recipe that I have used half dozen times and it has always turned out. Fail-Proof Pizza Dough.
 Start with the sauce, and steal your sisters pepperonis off her pizza
 add your cheese and get your hands messy
don't forget all your favorite toppings!
