St. Patty’s Day

We went to The Shamrock Shuffle with just our older two girls so that we didn’t have to worry about Brooke or Dani and we could just dance all night! 🙂

Fun times!

Pretty Silly.

Friends from church.
Girls dancing!

Megan ate like four cupcakes. She was in Heaven!
Daddy dancing with Megs.
Emilee couldn’t get enough of dressing up. She had so much fun with the photo booth.

Megan lost one of her front teeth on St. Patrick’s Day. Pretty cool!
The next day, both front teeth are out! I love this stage.

Doll Quilts

Grandma Elizabeth made quilts for our girls American Girl Dolls. How creative is this? They were a BIG surprise, but the girls were so excited to have them for their dolls. They turned out so cute and I just can’t believe she can just whip these up like that. Well, I know it’s not that simple… a lot of time, work, and love are put into these! The girls treasure them just like they do their own quilts Grandma made them. Thanks Grandma. We Appreciate and Love You!

The quilts make the beds look so elegant or fancy as Emilee would say. 🙂
All ready in their special doll room.
Brooke and Dani got quilts for their babies too. Lucky!

The girls with their quilts and the dolls with their quilts. Soooooo CUTE… I can’t stand it!!!


Cheer and Basketball Award Ceremony

Upwards awards and ceremonies were last weekend. This was quite the production and very entertaining. In honor of the basketball players and cheerleaders.

Emilee and Megan with their teams!

Cheerleaders performing in front of everyone.

Emilee cheering like crazy when her team was announced. Team Pride all the way!

This guy was great. The girls absolutely loved everything he could do. Here he is juggling with fire!
He uni cycled on three different heights. And if this wasn’t high or good enough, he began to juggle up that high while he pedaled. Crazy!

What a fabulous season. Until next year!

Brooke goes to School

Brooke turned three and she started preschool here in Mason. She takes the bus to and from school. She goes to the same school as Megan so they can ride together. It’s great! I have been preparing her for this for a while and she has been so excited to finally go to preschool. Yay!
She wanted to take Nemo with her.

Saying Bye to Grandma.
Girls all go out together.

Have Fun!
Welcome home Brookee. She is loving going to school, but she has been very worn out these last couple of days.

Brooke Turns Three!

Brooke is now three years old. WoW! Time sure does fly. She had a great birthday shared with her family and grandparents. She got lots of fun presents and she knew exactly what was going on. She loved every minute of her special day. Happy Birthday Brooke!
Pics from her day are HERE.


All I can say is CRUISES are Amazing! We went on a cruise with our good friends from Arizona last week. This cruise was through the western Caribbean. We went out of Tampa and stopped at Cozumel and Costa Maya. This marks the 10 yr. anniversary since the first BIG cruise with friends. Also, Matt and I are celebrating our 10 Years of Marriage this year! Wow! That’s a BIG milestone. There are no words to say how amazing of a time we had. I LOVE to travel with friends and family. When I look back at my childhood and the past 10 years… the times that stick out to me most is when we were building memories through the trips we would take. I think it’s so important to have a balance of trips as a couple, as a family, and with friends each year! Thanks for the GREAT time!!! Can’t wait to go again in 10 more years! 🙂 Pics are HERE.
