How much fun it is to play in the rain!  We got Addie bundled up and sent her into the backyard with her umbrella and boots and she enjoyed one of God's purest parts of nature...RAIN!

Okay mommy, I'm wet, cold, and sandy...time for a nice warm bath!

St. Patrick's Day Breakfast

The Leprechauns came to visit us last night! Addie was so excited to see what they did!

First, they left Addie green milk and some skittles.

They left Justin his favorite cereal, Lucky Charms...

...and a box of kisses.

Even Brynnie had green milk!

Leprechauns don't flush??!!

Yum!  Tastes the same, but much more fun to drink!

Brynn was eating the "gold" kisses that the Leprechauns left sprinkled on the kitchen table.

"Mommy, the pancakes are green!  Those leprechauns are so silly!"

Green eggs...I have to say...YUCK!  But everyone else like them.

A perfect St. Patrick's Day Breakfast...

We thought for sure she wouldn't touch it cause it looked weird....but I guess since the girl will eat DOG FOOD, she had no problem with green food!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

An evening walk

We are loving that it's starting to get dark later and later! So, last night after dinner and baths were done, the sun was just starting to set, so we decided to take a family walk. We got the girls in warm jammies, and bundled them in a comfy blanket!  The girls love being in their wagon, and Justin and I love to look at the houses in the neighborhood and talk about what we like and what we would want to do to our future home someday...it was a win win!


Daddy Daughter Date Night

Justin signed himself and the girls up to attend Chic Fil A's Daddy Daughter Date night. How cute is that? So we got the girls all dressed in their matching "Daddy's Girls" shirts for their date. Addie said as they were leaving "I'm so excited!  I've never been on a date before!"  Little does she know, it's gonna be a LONG time till she gets to go on a date with anyone other than her daddy!

Brynn all ready to go.

All dressed up for her first date!

Ready to leave.

Such a beauty, right?

"Mommy, take my picture!"

A quick stop to smell the roses.

When they arrived, they were given roses.

The tables there were all set up fancy.

They came and took their order at the tables and brought them their food.


They played "Butterfly Kisses" and they daddies danced with their girls.

Scavenger Hunt for Daddy

Today as another one of our SHMILY (See How Much I Love You) items, Addie and I decided to do a scavenger hunt for Daddy. He's been wanting to have a backyard picnic, so we thought we'd lead him there with a fun hunt.

First, we had to get the food all ready before he got home from taking Brynnie to the doctor.

Here are all our supplies
The finished product
Then a picture for Daddy
Here she is on "lookout" to see when he's gonna pull up.

 Then when he walked to the door, this is what he found:

You're on a hunt, here's your 1st clue, go ahead and look inside your shoe
Now head to the room where you'll find Addie's bed, and take a look where she lays her head
You're doing a great job with all your lookin, go to place you do all your cookin
Don't give up, follow the path, go look for a clue near the girls bath
You're almost there to find where we will hide, go and look for us outside
Here is Brynn looking out at us...she almost ruined the surprise!
Surprise Daddy!
Yummy lunch!
Fun afternoon!
