Reese Turns 2!

Okay, well I took the summer off.  Okay maybe the summer and fall.  But, I'm going to try and be as "up to date" as I can with a newborn and 2 toddlers.  Sigh.  Do I even have a chance? 


Reese and one of her new Gig Harbor friends Inez



Of course she had a "helper" to open her gifts.  Ella is also helping play with them these days as well!
I thought I'd at least post a few pictures from Reese's recent Minnie Mouse birthday party.  Enjoy.  She sure did!  Because she is 2, she took to 2 gifts right away...that aren't even toys.  One was her Minnie Mouse thermos.  The other was a pair of fleece Reindeer pajamas.  She didn't seem to want to leave either behind!
Happy Birthday Reese!

Ella and Reese's Dedication at Church

On Mother's Day we got to celebrate by dedicating the girls at church.  Mars Hill doesn't do baby baptisms (they wait for them to be able to confess a relationship with Jesus before baptizing), but does follow the biblical model of dedication kids.  It was really meaningful for me, and the 20 or so families up there with us!

We chose the following scripture, the same passage we say over the girls each night.
"The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
Numbers 6:24-26



Little Feats Pre-3 "Graduation"

 Ella was so cute during her graduation.  Damon got to join us and the minute she saw us, her eyes lit up.  They sang 9 songs and then we got to have cake and cookies with all her friends.  My favorite song was "Tiny Tim the Turtle".



Easter

We had a blast celebrating Jesus' birth. Sara Chapman came over for the morning festivities, and then we went to Church to worship Jesus!  The girls had so much fun looking for eggs, although Ella definitely got most of them. 





New Sunglasses


Who knew a trip to Target could produce so much fun!

SUPERSTAR

 I mean really...this says Hollywood all over it!

Balance Bike



Ella hasn't been too excited about practicing on her balance bike, but to be honest she hasn't had all that many nice days to practice.  Today we had some good times on the bike since it was a gorgeous sunny day!  She did it all by herself and soon enough she'll be scooting herself all over the place!

Fun in the crib



These days, when Reese wakes up from her nap....Ella is the first one in the room and jumps in the crib with her sister.  Even first thing this morning I heard giggles from their room instead of crying...ahhh such sweet sounds!

Well, we've kinda been MIA for awhile.  Really, I've been lazy.  Honestly we haven't taken many pics over the past few months, so you haven't missed anything!

Here is what a normal day looks like for us right now.  Ella was helping me pick my outfit for our date night last night, hence the heels (they are definitely not the norm for me these days).  THen she decided to color while Reese played dress-up.  If you ask me, with the onesie and the heels, I think she looks straight out of a J-Lo video! Ha Ha.

We'll try and post more frequent.  With our impending move, we'll have lots of activity going on here, so should be fun and interesting!

Much Love!
