My little girl is turning 2

Elliette Avarie 2 yrs
Seriously can't believe Elliette will be turning 2
It is hard to believe that my little girl will be 2 next week! Where does the time go? I just want to make time crawl, it is going way too fast. I want to capture every moment. I actually won a photo shoot on a blog. Marie Long took these amazing photos from That's a Wrap Photography. thatsawrapphotography.blogspot I am busy getting her party together which is coming together so cute, I will post pics after the party. Ellie is so much fun right now. She makes us laugh every day. She keeps us very busy, she always wants to go bye-bye. That girl is always on the go. She is so smart and being such a big sister to Emery. We are so blessed to have such a perfect little girl.

Happy Father's Day

Father's Day 2010
Surprising Daddy with presents
Kisses from DaddyAt the park for our Father's Day picnic
Don't ya want to pinch that little bottom! Emery 13 days old
My little Jim-Jim Love you Dad!
I meant all day to get a picture of Jeremy and his girls on Father's Day, and never did. So this will do in bed all snuggled around him. Happy Father's Day! I just have to say I have the best husband who is the best Dad to my girls that I could ever dream of. I hope they realize how lucky they are to have such an amazing man in their lives. Those of you who know Jeremy know how hardworking, kind, patient and amazingly good with the kids that he is. He takes such good care of them and me. He is so selfless, he always thinks of his family first before himself. I love you honey! I can't believe that tomorrow is our 7 year anniversary, I love you more and more each day. I also am very very lucky to have my little Jim-Jim, the best Dad a girl could want. Not sure how he did it all those years with a household of girls. Thanks for always being there for me, for being to the one to come pick me up for a treat when Jeremy was living out of state, for always putting us kids before yourself. I am such a lucky girl I also married into an amazing family, I gained the most amazing Father-in-law on top of marrying my incredible husband. Thanks to all the men in my life who influence me every day. I love you all!

Ellie being a big helper
sweet sisters
6 days old already time is flying way too fast
Well we are home and adjusting to having a newborn in the house again. Thank goodness she is so mellow and sleeping pretty good through the night already. You forget how tired you are with those nightly feedings. It is a whole new ballgame this time around with having an almost 2 year old. Thank goodness G'ma Linda has been here to help us out. Ellie is very gentle and sweet with the "bebe" she does not like it when she cries, she gets very upset. Emery is very easy going and sleeps almost all day long. She is so sweet and precious, I almost forgot how sweet that newborn stage is. I just want to bottle it up. I can't believe she will be a week old tomorrow. She is Elliette look similar but not the exact same. She was only 6 oz smaller but seems to be a lot smaller than Ellie was. Nothing I had fit her, thank goodness my aunt got her some newborn stuff to wear.

Memorial Day BBQ

The girls with Talan
Lincoln and Ellie
The Christensens
Jess and Crew
Krista and Lincoln Memorial Day we spent most of the day at my Grandma Ruth's with the family, then we had the Bills' and Christensen's over for a BBQ. Everything is more fun when you are with friends. The kids are all getting old enough to play together so that is fun, they loved playing with all the bubbles we had for them. Note to self: Next time just boil the dang corn! haha we tried grilling the corn, but I am not sure it was worth the effort. Or just boil then grill it for the grill flavor.
