Easter


Easter kinda snuck up on us  this year.
So we didn't get to the egg coloring until Saturday afternoon.

  
Easter17W

{Kam *was* enjoying the egg coloring, I promise.
She just kept making these "I'm bored" faces.}
 
 
Easter16W

Once the eggs were done, we moved on to a little baking . . .
 
Easter18W  

And food prep the rest of the day.

Easter11W  
 
 On Sunday morning, I made the girls pose for 2.3 seconds, so I could get a group shot . . .
 
Easter12W

And when Daddy came into the house, we decided we had an extra second to spare, so we tied him up, gagged him, and forced him in to a family picture.
 
Easter14W  

And then it was off to Church . . .

Missing A Couple


We were supposed to spend last weekend at the beach with Jeremy's extended family.

I bought new My Little Pony activity books for the little girls.

We cleaned out the car.

I cooked {we were in charge of dinner one night}

And we packed our bags . . .

So it came as no surprise that the little girls started running fevers two days before the trip.

I prayed they'd get better fast, but no such luck.

So Jeremy took the big girls with him to Depoe Bay for the day.

And I got time with my littles.

By Saturday they were feeling a bit better, and I was determined to make their "at home" day

something special.

We started with coloring pages . . .
 
 
CraftDay02W

We love to color ♥


Then we decided that our "pets" needed appropriate pet beds.
 
CraftDay03W

A little duct tape, and an old storage container . . .  
 
CraftDay04W

And voila!  Pet Bed for Grumpy Cat:
 
CraftDay05W

We made one for Tay's pet too :)
 
CraftDay06W


The girls were on a roll by then, so we proceeded with these adorable
Q-tip Lambs ♥  
 
CraftDay01W

It was "the best craft day EVER!" according to Kam and Tay.

What a blessing to have some time alone with them. 
 
 
CraftDay07W

We've had such beautiful days, we just had to get out in it, at least for a few minutes.

Before heading outside I debated having Tay change out of her jammies, but . . .

you know, that's real life for us.  Jammy-clad three year olds has been the norm here for years!
 
CraftDay08W  


We had so much fun together, but now I'm ready for everyone to feel better so we can proceed with our plans!

Hope you all have managed to stay well!

Blue Skies & Sisters . . . Nothin' Better.

 It has been unseasonably GORGEOUS 'round these parts, and we can't get enough!

As soon as we're done with school for the day, we head outside to help Daddy with work projects,

or just to enjoy the glorious sunshine.

The other day the girls were swinging,

Tay had had enough . . .
 
 
Sunnyday01W  

So, the super cool big sissy that Kam is, she donned her helmet {yes, I realize that it should've been the other way around, lol!}, and took Tay for a spin in the wagon.
 
Sunnyday02W  

But after awhile, Kam got tired.  And, well, a little grumpy.

Because it's hard to be six, right?  Six is a tough age that comes with a LOT of hormones,

I'm finding out {or being reminded of . . . for the third time}.
 
Sunnyday03W

But then the sweetest thing happened.
 
 
Sunnyday04W  

Tay found her, and proceeded to just BE THERE for her.
 
Sunnyday05W  
 
 She squeezed.
 
Sunnyday06W  
 
 She imparted some younger sisterly wisdom.
 
Sunnyday07W

And soon, Kam's smile returned.
 
 
Sunnyday08w  
 
 
 Are sisters, like, the GREATEST thing in the world??

I know I'm blessed by mine, and my girls are blessed by theirs.

Happy 10th Birthday, Makenna Nicole!

 Sweet Makenna, you are 10 years old today!! Double digits!  How quickly we arrived here. I swear it was just yesterday I was cuddling a three year old.


Makenna, you are like a breath of fresh air, when life seems chaotic.



You are my most go-with-the-flow, little Darlin



When plans change at the last minute (as they often do) you are least likely to let that bother you. 




You take your time in everything you do. From the time you were tiny, there was no rushing you. 



You are also an extremely sensitive soul.



 You think deeply, love fiercely, and are completely uninhibited. 


You are, by far, the silliest of your sisters! Once you get in one of your moods, and the giggles start, you drag all of us along with you!



You've become a tremendous help. Not so long ago you were content to let Sissy handle the big jobs, but these days, I can count on you to help wherever needed.



You are WONDERFUL with children. That is where you shine. 



You are patient with others, and a true teacher at heart.




In fact, you want to be a preschool teacher when you grow up.



And if that's what you pursue, I just know you'll be amazing.



You have a smile that lights up the greyest day, and a giggle that is infectious.




I thank God each day that He has entrusted us with you.



Happy Birthday, my Darlin Girl!

We love you so much!!

If six doesn't just sound a whole lot older than five.

Because, in your eyes, nothing is too small to celebrate.
