Check out these sweet girls... instant buddies!  Tonight we got to meet up with friends for dinner.  It was the first time we've been able to get our families together, but it was actually a little reunion for Cora and the cutie in the middle with piggies... Oh, they wouldn't have known any better, but I did get a pretty big smile out of Cora when I told her the two girls lived together as babies.  (Yeah, I thought it was pretty neat, too)!

Just look at them now!  How GREAT is this!!!

summer sun

3% battery left and she refused to look at me...  But I still love this.


























And here's big sis...  (Middle sis fell asleep, so we let her be).























Pretty girls  :)

fair 2014

So I got this crazy idea to take the girls to the fair this year!  (My mother-in-law agreed to join us for the fun, too).  We went on a few rides, checked out some baby chicks and ducks, walked through the horse barn, and grabbed a funnel cake and cotton candy.  They loved it. I, unfortunately, was sick (boo).  Wish I would have had a little more spunk, but here are the girls enjoying themselves...




































Little E was so gentle with the babies.  I didn't take her on any rides, but she sure enjoyed meeting the chicks and ducklings!  She even tried to give them kisses.  Here she is petting a chick's little head - pure delight!

first haircut

Little E's hair had been looking a little crazy, and it was time for a trim.  (And yes, the crazy hair did suit that crazy, little personality of hers, but it was kinda driving her mother nuts..  Her father - not so much.  He liked the mini mullet).

Moms overrule dads when it comes to hair, so off we went and tagged along during her big sisters' hair appointments.  Little Miss was a little unsure about it all when I sat her down in the chair, but we gave her a sucker, and she sat as quiet and as content as could be for the entire appointment!
























Suckers are awesome.
























And here she is after the cape was removed.  Looking pretty pleased with herself.  Guess she liked the new do.  (And I do, too.)

and happy birthday

to me!





































And she's now 5.  Such a little girl.  She's obsessed with all thing princess, and her go-to-girl is Sleeping Beauty.  She LOVES dress-up.  Her favorite color is pink.  Hot pink.  She loves to do her own hair, and I often find her in the morning in front of the mirror, with a big smile on her face as she adds bow after bow after bow...  (And that hairstyle will change many more times during the day.) She's sweet as can be.  She loves being a big sister (and she's a pretty good one at that!)   She's a sharp cookie and loves to "do school."  She's my little helper.  (Is there anything more fun than fetching diapers, putting away laundry, wiping the table or dusting the furniture?  Not in this girl's world!)  She loves to cuddle and her heart is HUGE.  She has the BEST giggle.  Her smile lights up my world.  I couldn't be any prouder of her - we. adore. this. girl!!!

hey there, cupcake

So since a little someone turned one year old, she got a cupcake.
And one would think that this would make her happy, although I'm not sure.
She didn't smile, not even once. 
But she cleaned her plate...
Every last crumb.
So I'd say it was a success.
She seems happier than ever.  Can't blame her!
