Some random photos

Aunt Jemima


Lucy had to have a repeat ECG because of the VSD she had at birth. Her heart is perfect now. And she was all relaxed like this for about half of it. And screamed bloody murder for the other half. 

The girls took a craft class with Ellie. They had a blast and we are going back in a few weeks for another one!

Margaret and Isabella both won Kiwanis Terrific Kid awards.

Love a baby in overalls. 

Thanksgiving and a Half Birthday

Today I hosted Thanksgiving at my house for the first time. And it was a success!
One of the tables. 

My 3 best girls and I.  Love them so much. 
And here's a little throwback. On the left is Lucy last Thanksgiving and on the right is today. 

This little turkey is 6 months old. So sweet. Such a happy little bug. 


Pilgrims and Indians

The girls had a little parade at their school Tuesday. The kindergarteners were Indians and the 2nd graders were Pilgrims. 

Aren't they so cute?

Grandparents' Day

We have loved watching all of Caroline's Grandparents Day performances and this year we got to see Margaret, too!

The theme was Decades of Fun. They performed different tv shows/people from decades past. Caroline was Cindy Brady. 

Margaret was Doris Day and sang "You are my sunshine". 

Mark's parents were here for Caroline's day. They enjoyed it and Caroline likes showing off her school. 

Margaret showed her classroom off to Mimi and Papa. (Her friend Daisy wanted in the picture)


Halloween 2014

Yep. I'm behind. Here's pics from Halloween. 

The past 2 years Mark has carved a pumpkin with Caroline's class. This year was Margaret's turn. 


Lucy was a tiny little angel. 

And Margaret was an angel, too!

Caroline has talked about being a witch for 3 years. And this year it finally happened.

Farmland Adventures with Margaret

Miss Margaret had her first field trip the other day and she loved it!!  They got to take a 45 minute bus ride to a corn maze/pumpkin patch/petting zoo called Farmland Adventures. 
They requested that no younger siblings come along so Margaret had me all to herself. She loved that. 
Playing in a big corn box. 
On top of the hay mountain with her friends. 
Tunnel fun. 
Feeding the sheep and goats. 

We also got to go on a wagon ride and feed the cows tortillas. 
The cows came right up to the wagon and ate the tortilla out if your hand. 

Picture with my girl. 
Here she is with the whole class. Her teacher is so sweet and there's several sweet girls too. (One she went to Mothers Day out with when she was 1!)

Lucy likes to eat

Miss Lucy has been very interested in what we have been eating lately. Just watching every bite we take. So I decided to let her try some food. She's almost 5 months and I think that's the standard these days. (Though who really knows. It changes year to year.)

She tried cereal/oatmeal first. 
Then moved on to some veggies. Squash was a favorite and sweet potatoes were too. 


Carrots were tolerated. But green beans are the holy grail!  Those are a winner every time.
