celebrating TWO

We celebrated THIS GUY on Tuesday as he turned TWO.

We had a breakfast party with all things doggie and some yummy baked oatmeal.

 We had fun playing at the park during the day. That evening we enjoyed a family dinner, at home. We had pasta, another one of #babyB's favorites. We opened presents after dinner.  And that was like Christmas morning with so many new fun gifts to play with! After presents we sung & dug into his yummy cake (chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting).
Happy Birthday, #babyB! 
You are LOVED immensely.

girls weekend 2016

This past weekend, we girls enjoyed a relaxing weekend in Myrtle Beach.  HUGE thanks to our husbands who gifted us with this getaway and signed up to watch the kids while we were away!

We had a great time of fellowship, long walks on the beach, relaxing by the pool, lots of great food, and shopping.
The view from our balcony.

Of course we hit the outlets! 
Personally, I got a lot of Christmas shopping done for the kids.

Another one of our yummy meals.

Game Day 2016

We are Notre Dame football fans! 
But I'm sure you already knew that. 
We like to start them young!

If you have forgotten our love for Notre Dame football, let me jog your memory.

 Notre Dame birthday party for #babyB turning ONE!

Huge thanks to AUNT ANNA, who helps stock our ND wardrobe!

seeing it for the THIRD time

ALL week #babyS has been wearing hand me downs that BOTH girls have worn.  
I just can't handle the cuteness.  Even the simple things just fill my heart.

Lily - March 2011

Ella - January 2013
I forgot what a CHUNK she was. This is at the WDW marathon weekend.

FIRST grade

Well, our summer sure flew bye, maybe because we were busy checking items off of our Summer Bucket List.  Yesterday, Lily started FIRST GRADE.

On Tuesday, we went to the open house.
We found her desk, we dropped off school supplies & we met her teacher, Mrs. Lindsay.

She was so excited Thursday morning.
I can't handle the cuteness with that uniform!
