Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm thankful for my family!

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name" Psalm 100:4

I am thankful today that I live in a land that is FREE and that we are able to share the greatest thing on Earth with our children... the Gospel of Jesus. This morning I told L2 that I was especially thankful today for her and baby M... I asked her what she was thankful for and with eyes lit up she exclaimed " Jesus!" How precious is that!

happy Thanksgiving!

Much love,
C, L1, L2 and BabyM

Coming home from a pizza party....

Our reaction:"Oh no!"

and then L2 says " Look daddy! Blue! blue lights daddy and red and white! "

Oh yes sweetie those are blue and white and red lights! daddy is being told to drive slower! I think it was about the only time when we actually laughed when being pulled over... M baby wasn't liking the carseat so the officer had sympathy on us and just gave a verbal warning. (thank you sir!)
Oh it's the little things in life that make me smile:-) Have a wonderful start to your week!

Little helpers...

My little guy is 3 1/2 mo old already! What a doll! ahem... I mean what a stud!
I think I've used my b-day mixer everyday if not twice a day! LOVING it!
Made angel food cake for Sunday lunch:-)
Plan on dressing it up with lemon whipped cream and berries... Mmm... I miss spring!

I think we spend at least 4 hrs a day in the kitchen doing something... be it making a meal or a craft or experimenting these two are such great helpers!
L2 helping me roll our Christmas clay ornaments...
Daddy and L2 LOVE licking the whisk after I make icing... MMMmmm!
One happy little helper! Mommy loves you very much thanks for being such a sweet little girl!

Have a great day!

twenty five

Bake my own birthday cake???

It was about 11pm on the eve of my b-day and C is finally done with work. I jokingly try to get him to go and bake a cake for me:-) I think everyone knows that C does NOT cook. So he tries to convince me to come with him and bake it... after about 15min of trying to convince HIM that he really CAN bake a cake from a box... I finally give in and waltz out to the kitchen to help... LOW and BEHOLD! Something I always really really (secretly) wanted:-) was on the counter waiting and in my favorite color! So needless to say I was MORE than HAPPY to help my wonderful hubby bake my birthday cake! Thank you babe! This is way too much... but I am LOVING it! Love you!

Tea anyone? L2 got a tea set for her birthday!
Love watching her play...
With friends just chillin'
and cuttin'
Poor bambi's mother:-(
It was a blast and really cool to see how this process happens! Thanks G & B!

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday our sweet little Bug! We love you and Thank God everyday for your precious spirit... sweet smiles... and silly giggles! I can't believe you are 2 years old!
Play date with some friends....
Finger painting....
Made some finger paint... SUPER easy: equal parts of flour and water and food coloring!
Walla! Finger paint:-)
Gpa & Gma K got L2 the PERFECT gift... a GATOR... L2 LOVES Swamp People which are people who live to hunt gators... and L2 likes that. Forget princesses and ballerinas... bring on a spoon as a shot gun and a blow up gator and this girl is a happy chick! Oh dear.
Birthday morning... showing Baby M her new bicycle and gator:-)
Thank you all for the birthday cards and Love...

We took a quick day trip to the zoo with some friends! It was so fun... we went Sunday evening and it was wonderful... We were literally about the last ones to leave. These two are about 5ish months apart and two peas in a pod! They were so fun and I love that they both had piggy tails!
L2's reaction to a "real LIVE" Gator! haha it was hilarious... "no likey daddy no likey"! She does LOVE them on the pbs videos though.
Checkin' out the zebras.
The entourage of strollers.
Always dreamt of going to Australia... guess this might be the closest I get for a while! haha
Our little Roo.
and a Daddy Roo? oh dear.
M baby slept the whole time.
Missed the opportunity to have newborn pics done... so here are a few we did get... An where are you when we need you? haha

My Sweet Babes... Lovin' it!

Seems like time literally flies... like when you fly to TX and it only takes 2hrs instead of 20hrs driving? Yeah... I feel like time is in fast forward mode and I just can't soak in enough of these precious kids.
M likes to stand at the back of the couch and look at these cool balls that my friend gave us. Thanks B!

L2 LOVES play-dough... we made it right before baby M arrived and has been a favorite since! She's making pizza and cookies and pretzels... Mmmm would you like some?
L2 has not been too photogenic lately... only wanting to see the pictures I take and not realizing she has to stand still and smile first! haha So sorry about half smiles and half closed eye lids. Hope your enjoying the sunshine today!
