Violet turns FOUR!

Not sure how, but Violet turned four!!  The time has gone by so fast!  She still seems like a baby to me and she'll be the first to tell you, she is still my baby:)!  V has always been a little bit of a challenge with her strong will, fits, and being hard to please At times, but she is so very cuddly and sweet!  So thankful God knew we needed one more little girl:)  She wanted all things baby this year!  We went to AG store to pick a doll and she only wanted bitty baby gear:)   I have her home with me this year for preschool and I look forward to all the one on one time we will get to have together:)!

Summer end!

Fun end to summer!  Park time, cookies, sleepover, pool and splash pad!  We had such a fun summer of vacations and play time!  The girls got along really well for the most part and I loved my time with them!!  Love these girls so much and I will miss them while they're back at school!

First day of school 2016

First day of fourth grade and first grade for these two!  Not sure where the time has gone:(  Tessa has Ms Bauer and Lyla has Ms Farver!  Two sweet teachers and they have several friends in their class!  Lyla is excited to be with Audrey and Anni and Tessa is excited to be in class with Maddy!


Violet and I had a fun first week back to school for the big girls!  She doesn't head back for 2 more weeks and so we enjoyed our time just her and I!  Lots of playing shopkins and ponies, reading books, walks to the park, bike rides, splash pad and the pool with friends, shopping and lunch with friends!  I had such a fun time this week and V loved the one on one time!  She hasn't always been the easiest child, but She is such a sweet heart!  Love when she looks at me and says 'mommy, I love you!'  

Lyla's acro recital!

Lyla started acro and tumbling June of 2015.. She came so far during the year and learned back walkover a, pull ups, handstands, headstands, cartwheels, round offs, got her right splits and is so close to her back handspring!  She loves it!!  
So proud of her!  

Colorado trip!

We took a trip in June to Denver, Golden and winter park!  It was a fun trip!!  We hiked, biked a trail, did the winter park ski resort area, swam, went to the Denver children's Museum and shopped.. Gondola ride, maze, bungee trampoline, putt putt and our favorite alpine slides!  We got to see our friends, the Keens and the girls loved seeing Kolbi and Callie!  All was great except for the major delay on our flight home.  We didn't get home until 3 am.. Needless to say it was a long night!
