Tartan Festival

 The family indulged me and came to the Tartan Festival with me! They had highland games, music, dancing, and different Clan booths set up. It was fun to see everything! I even talked to one clan representative and she looked up my ancestors and I learned we had our own Clan!


 We convinced the girls to try archery. Kate was really good! Even hitting the target with no help! Abby had to be bribed to try, but after releasing her first arrow said "oh nice!" and proceeded to happily finish all her arrows!

And the best way to end time at a festival is with snow cones!

March Update

 Chance really is our best friend. He's such a great dog!
 Jane loves spaghetti! It's hilarious to watch her shove it into her face.
 I've been teaching Kate beginner piano lessons. She is really picking it up! And is incredibly patient when Jane plays along!
 Jane seems to always have marker or pen on her these days. This day I found particularly funny. Looks like a prison tattoo.
 Proof that it can snow in South Carolina! Even if only a little.
Jane shares my love of Cadbury....raising my girls right!

Abby's Preschool Circus


Abby's Preschool held a circus. Quite possibly the cutest thing ever! Abby dressed up as a ring leader...or animal trainer. She brought her Penguin in to pull behind her in the opening ceremony. And she was a master at the ring of fire, weightlifting, trampoline, juggling, and tight rope walking, Such a fun activity!

Valentine's Day


 I love the day of love! The cheesy romantic stuff just makes me so happy! So this year I let the girls design and paint their own Valentine's Day shirts. And I made hearts in their hair. So FUN! And Jon and I did our tradition of writing them love notes and giving them one every day in Feb leading up to the 14th. Kate started giving out some of her own, and this one was my favorite. I love being a Mom of such sweet fun girls!
And Jon gave me a letter with 7 clues I had to solve to earn my Valentine reward. Super cheesy and perfect! Love him!

Speaking of fun--check out this random chicken I found in Jane's diaper. Definitely a motherhood first!

Kate update

 Kate had her 100th day of first grade and made a fantastic old lady. And Kate just finished her first basketball season. She was the only girl on the team, and was the least experienced, but she learned alot! One thing Kate did was take her coach's directions very seriously--she would always go right to her spot on the floor and keep her arms up--no matter where the ball was! So fun to watch.

A little bit of 18 month Jane


 Jane is still growing and developing at her own pace. She is still only saying a few words, like Mom, Dad and Chance. We are starting the speech therapy journey. And she still only walks when she wants to--she will walk on her knees everywhere though. So stubborn. Here she is feeding herself yogurt and loving it.


 And here she is riding in her car seat home from church. Compliments of Abby. Next we have a gigantic goose egg from falling head first out of her highchair.


And here we watching the Superbowl with Dad eating chip dip. Jane is a huge fan of any dip!

January Recap


 Sleeping babies are always perfection. Jane is my favorite in the mornings--since she sleeps till 8:30!
Abby is silly and asks for PB and cheese sandwiches these days.
 Jane loves to help do laundry and dishes. She's a big helper!











This is what it looks like to bake around this place. I need my own cooking show "cooking adequately with kids and obstacles" is my working title. But the finished product tasted good--even if it wasn't pretty!


 Kate git her ears pierced!! She didn't even cry, with the help of some numbing cream from Aunt Valerie!

 And just because it's hilarious, Jane LOVES Fazoli's bread sticks!
