Valentine's day tea party!!!!

We have a Valentines day tea party every year at our house with all of the cousins on my side of the family. Jon started this tradition because it was one of his favorite things as a kid. This year we decided to take picture of all of the grand kids and it was a lot of fun!! Maren picked out her very own princess outfit so that's why she has so many layers :). We ran around my neighborhood and ate some delicious cake and did some crafts. I love my nieces and nephews like my own so I love having a party with them just for kicks and giggles.

Preschool with the share bag

The infamous Share bag!! Maren has been telling me every time I pick her up from school that she didn't get the share bag. I have been trying to figure out what the share bag is for weeks now and she finally got it! She ran up to me and gave me a hug and said "Mom I got the share bag!!" She ran home and filled up her share bag to get ready for the next time she went to preschool. So when it was time for preschool again we woke up early and she insisted on getting a picture of her holding her share bag. It was the best day of preschool ever!
Every time Maren goes to preschool Taylor gets to play with her friend Grace while their siblings are gone to school. They are best friends and they play so good together. Every time they come over Taylor has to eat her breakfast for an HOUR I swear. So they both wanted to eat cereal and they sat on the couch like this for a good half an hour talking to each other and eating their cereal! Who says 2 year olds don't have an attention span :)

Bowling fun with soccer jerseys

 We went bowling with my neighbors and their kids the other day and the girls had SO much fun. I couldn't get a picture of Taylor bowling because she needed my help to throw the ball, but she is actually pretty good at it. Maren would roll the ball as slow as possible and it would take forever to make it down the lane, but she had such a good time. 
I signed them up for soccer the other day and they are going to be on the same team together and I will be their coach!!! I am so excited about it I can't hardly wait. Anyways they got their soccer jerseys and they wouldn't take them off for anything, they think they are pretty cool walking around with their jerseys on. Maren wanted #9 so bad and Taylor got #2... It's pretty fun. They are pretty cute in their little red and white uniforms :)

Princess and the Potty

My potty trained princess/super hero Tay Tay (She calls herself Super Hero Tay Tay)!!! I'm so proud of her, she is officially potty trained. It's the greatest feeling to have 2 out of 3 of my kids out of diapers, and it's awesome on the pocket book :) She is even potty trained at far no accidents!!! Taylor has so much personality, she is so fun to watch grow up! Love you Taylor Jean xxoo
