Future ballerina?

Last week I was able to take Avery to ballet with just Lorelai. It was so fun to watch my 8 year old twirling across the ballet studio.
And this cutie was the perfect date.

See that cute blonde ballerina twirling by the teacher? That's my Avery.

Ellie belly

Oh this girl is CRAY CRAY! She is almost always a hot mess. She doesn't care if she has different shoes on, her hair is tangled, dirt on her face, marker all over her arms. She lives life to the fullest. She is energetic and fun. She is really high or really low. And she wears me out! :)
Here she is showing off the 25th piece of gum she stole from my purse.
"Reading" a poetry book while I was organizing Lorelai's new room. Notice no shirt on her? Yep that's totally normal.
Love this little foot up in the air.
Wrote her name completely by herself. Was so PROUD! And she's only three.
Always loving on Lorelai. Which usually means Lorelai is being tortured.
Again, love from Ellie often hurts, ha!
One morning she straight up cried for TWENTY minutes because I wouldn't make her bacon. Trust me after that meltdown I would have wrapped it up in gold if I had some.
Here she is so proud that she got herself dressed. I am impressed that she at least matched!

Birthday weekend

Look what Shane got himself for my birthday. Just kidding. It just so happened that the day we got his man car (he was driving my honda civic which doesn't exactly seat four kids or pull a trailer full of mulch) was right before my birthday.
And this is what I got with all of my birthday money. I use one side for Lorelai and one side for me.
And here are two of my sweeties. Notice the green yarn? My birthday present from Reece.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Shane got one of my absolute favorites! Black Tie Mousse Pie from Olive Garden.
Brought out my September tea cups. The one on the left was my grandma's and the one on the right my mom gave me. My sisters and I each have one.
Reece as the cameraman. Basically a horrible shot, but here I am blowing out the candle. To which the kids told me the piece of pie was way too small for that many candles so they just put one candle on there!

Shane gave me a new bookshelf for my birthday. He was so afraid I would think it was a lame gift. Umm, seriously did he forget he was married to an English teacher?
