Avery got glasses!  She had her well child checkup and she read the eye chart and they recommended we get her eyes checked.  Sure enough this girl needed glasses.  We picked out some dark purple Princess glasses and she is so cute!!img_7256

It has been a busy couple of months!  I get so busy with everyday life and blogging completely slips my mind.  I know many of you like to know what the girls have been up to and how big they have gotten.  Maybe I will find a good way to keep up with the blog eventually!

I started this post after Christmas and I am just now getting it finished up!  Hopefully I can at least get in some monthly posts!

Fall pictures

Here are some pictures of the girls we took back in October.  For the most part everyone did great.  Skylee wasn’t really in the mood for pictures so some of her faces are just ornery!  Then there is Avery who would be happy to have her picture taken all day long!

Valentine’s fun 2016

Trying to get the blog caught up!

The girls had a Valentine’s party at their preschool and needed to make a box for their Valentine’s.  We asked the girls what they wanted to make; Raegan of course wanted a monster and Avery wanted to do an Elsa Castle.  So one Saturday afternoon we got to work on their boxes.

Raegan and I worked on her monster box.  She helped but being only 3 I did most of the work!

IMG_3002
Avery and the hubby worked on her Elsa castle.  Hubby’s architecture skills came in handy for this one.  We looked at some pictures online and hubby did a drawing of his idea and Avery said she didn’t like it.  So hubby asked what she wanted and Avery told him as he drew it and she was very pleased!  Then they got started.  Avery was able to help some but this was quite the castle being made and needed a lot of hubby’s help.IMG_7380 IMG_2999IMG_2998
The girls were so excited to take their boxes to preschool!

Avery’s 1st soccer game!

Our friends put together a soccer team and asked us if Avery would want to play.  It is for kids 4-6 years old and she would know some of the other kids so we decided to go for it!  After her first game we asked her what she thought…her reply was “I just like practice.  There are too many kids in a game.”  Poor girl was overwhelmed by all the kids running around!!

This is my favorite picture of Avery kicking the ball!

Family vacation – Part 1

About two weeks ago we went to Oregon for a family vacation.  Some of the hubby’s family lives there along with his grandma, who had her 85th birthday, and they were having a surprise birthday party for her.  It was so nice to see all of the family but having 4 children under 4 made this a very exhausting vacation!!  I’m still working on getting all of our photos together from our trip so there will have to be a part two!

The girls first trip to the beach!!IMG_2610 IMG_2615 IMG_2616 IMG_2619 IMG_2624 IMG_2626 IMG_2630 IMG_2635 IMG_2638 IMG_2641 IMG_2645 IMG_2647 IMG_2654 IMG_2660 IMG_2664 IMG_2670 IMG_2672 IMG_2675 IMG_2677 IMG_2686 IMG_2690 IMG_2692

We also went for a carousel ride.IMG_2694 IMG_2705 IMG_2709Then more time at the beach with all the cousins!IMG_2710 IMG_2713 IMG_2715 IMG_2717 IMG_2718 IMG_2725 IMG_2727 IMG_2730
