Pretty In Pink

Elizabeth is sweet and learning quickly new words and physical things. She has turned into quite the climber and has been saying lots of things. Of course they don't sound like how you hear them but this is what she is begining to say, Anna, Daddy, Bailey, Mommy, Momma, and I am sure there are others but I can't think of them right now. Oh yeah, hi and bye and hey!
Now for the cute little clothes she has on. The overalls were Elias' first, Jonah wore them also, and now Elizabeth. I thought she looked especially cute in them. Maybe she doesn't and I'm in love with it more for the mere sentimental value they have to me. One of my very favorite pictures of Elias he is wearing them.

This is our big girl Anna! Isn't she adorable. I am very proud of here right now, she has been potty training for the last week. We are having great success. Of course I don't want to be too proud because we are still in the begining stages, but things are going very well. We were having fun tonight playing with our princess wand and posing for pictures.

My sweeet girls are sweet sisters. I am so excited to watch them grow into best friends some day. I love the friendship I have with my sisters and can't wait for that to be the case for them. I know we will have some ups and downs before they reach that point but I am excited about this. I love the ones of them kissing. I asked Anna to sit down and put her arms around Elizabeth so I could ge them both in the same frame, which I was having trouble with, and they started to kiss each other. So cute! I love my pretty in pink little girls!

Wii Party

For Elias' 7th brithday we had a Wii party. We had Wiimote cakes, Rock Band, Golf, and Lego Star Wars, presents and goodies. What more could a kid ask for? His grandparents to get in on the Rock Band action! I think that was the highlight of the party for me! My mom singing a B'52 song and a Weezer song and watching my dad rock the guitar & drums to songs 30 years younger than they are! Awesome!!
Anyway, we had a great time celebrating our oldest child! He is such a sweet boy! We are proud of him and are excited to watch him grow and change. Although, this year I was a little sad for some reason to see him add another year to his life. I love you buddy!

Christmas PJ's

My parents get all of the grandkids matching Christmas pajama's to wear on Christmas eve. So here we are showing our jammies off. Getting all of our sillies out so that we could go to the great "visitor" would come. I love how our house if full of silliness and how well it's displayed here. I know sometimes I complain and sometimes I even yell at Dan for getting them all wound up before bedtime. But I think this kind of stuff will be what I miss the most when our kids are too cool for us. Or maybe they won't ever be that way...can't a girl dream!?

White Kids

I had to chronicle yet another attempt to get pictures of four children who want to run in different directions and do different things. I managed to get a nice shot of everyone they just don't all seem to be in the same picture. :)

Monogram Letters

I am going to shamelessly plug myself here and say, these are some monogram letters that I have made for people for Christmas presents. I usually make them for baby shower gifts but for Christmas I was trying to be creative for a few recipients and here's what I did. So if any of you would be interested in having a personalized monogram made, let me know and I am sure we can work out some sort of deal. I am even willing to ship, for a small fee. :) Anyway, you can pass this information of if you'd like. Just post a comment and let me know if you are interested. We can customize it for room decor/theme/color. Thanks!!

Christmas Pearls

Anna Christmas 2006 with the pearls before they go on the tree.
Elizabeth with the pearls Christmas 2008. I am going to try to get pictures of my girls and the pearls every year at Christmas time. I can't find my pictures of them from last Christmas, but I think if I don't have them my friend does. I might try to add them if I can get them from her. See how Anna has grown. And don't you just love the t-shirt and diaper only baby! I was just trying to show off her thighs!
