Jump rope for heart!!

Izzy’s school had jump rope for heart again.  It is a fundraiser for the American heart association.  The kids get to go a bunch of stations that get their heart rates up.  I volunteered and Piper and Cassidy came along.  They LOVE going to Izzy’s school!DSC_0172

After a few meltdowns because they couldn’t follow Izzy around, they were super happy when she got over to our section!

January pictures!

January has been a good month for us!  Cassidy turned 2 years old!  We have had lots of fun together! 


Piper got this melting snowman at Christmas.  You can make it and it melts and then you can do it again.  All three girls love it & haven’t gotten tired of it yet!


Dinner out and the big girls never miss a photo-op Smile  Working out in the garage!20141231_104716

Cassidy put her paci in an Olaf buid a bear.  She has done great without it and now gives a non-stop running commentary of everything she sees and thinks about.  She is a talkative kiddo!  I think that is both nature and nurture.  Her birthmom and I both love to talk!20141231_11151920141231_112010

We had a fun time at the mall, riding the carousel and train.


Dinner at ChicFilA, Cassidy’s favorite place, for her birthday!


She has started loving to play dress up!  She is such a happy kiddo!20150120_110529

We enjoyed a few warm days!


Cutest doctor around!  I get doctored daily!


I love my sweet girls!  February is always a whirlwind with our anniversary (13 years!), Izzy’s birthday, the circus, Valentines day and hopefully some snow!  We are excited for “love month” as the big girls call it!

Christmas Eve 2014


Christmas Eve morning started with opening our stockings.  They girls could hardly wait! We played around that morning and had some friends over for lunch.  That afternoon we headed to our neighbors church to do a spontaneous nativity.  The kids get to pick out costumes and participate in the reading of the Christmas story.  I ended up with two angels and a sheep!20141224_152401




Afterwards we got some dinner and then headed to our church for the Christmas Eve service.  Tim was singing a song and the girls were excited to sit on the front row!


After Tim’s song we headed home for bed.  Santa had work to do!  He ate their gingerbread house and left them a “Thanks”.

A real doctor kit for Piper


Izzy bought Cassidy a big bottle of bubbles!  She was so excited!


I spent most of our time enjoying the kids opening presents so I didn’t take pictures of everything.  The big girls got this Lego set and love it!


Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas so we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus.  Piper and Izzy had cinnamon rolls- Cassidy can’t have them because they have eggs so she had a bagel.  She didn’t eat the bagel though, once she saw we were having bacon that’s all she wanted!  That girl LOVES some bacon!  Smile

One sweet thing that happened while we were opening presents was Cassidy started singing and it sounded like “away in a manger” so we all stopped and sang.  It warmed my heart that the girls understand why we celebrate. 

We have had a great Christmas season!  We are so blessed.  We are thankful for all of our blessings.  Christmas Eve post coming next!
