How are these two big enough to be on the swings by themselves?!

Miss CJ is catching up to her big sister, Sweet T. I keep praying that they'll be good friends.

pre-Birthday celebrating

We always look forward to having guests, and were glad that Grandma and Grandpa came down for a couple of days before CJ's birthday.

We went hunting for black walnuts and hedgeballs. Everyone was amazed at Grandpa's rock skipping skills.

And I am especially thrilled when Grandma makes her homemade angel food cake. Yum!

Daddy Daughter Date

Miss H was Daddy's special date for a wedding two weekends ago. I was home with a sick child, but was happy to send these two off for a special time away from home.

And she was beyond thrilled, of course, to get dressed up. They even got to eat ice cream and go to Menards after the wedding. What's a date without a trip to Menards?!

Happy Birthday CJ!

She is having a simple but fun day today. She has a couple gifts to open from her grandparents. We are so thankful for grandparents around here, especially on birthdays. She had waffles for breakfast, and I made an ice cream cake for dessert tonight.

I am so thankful for this girl. She brings such laughter into our home!

Here she is when she celebrated her birthday a week ago when Grandma and Grandpa were here.

 And I took this picture this morning. She even successfully blew out her candle all by herself!
 And these pictures I have taken in the last month. They're recent. We shall see if I get around to portraits this month!
