Sister Love...

I'm so happy my girls have each other...
there is just something so special about the
sisterly bond...
{I should know, I have 7 sisters!}
A few days ago Elsie and Angelina were
playing with dolls together,
and I overheard Elsie telling Angelina 
about how she prayed for a sister for 
a long time
then God finally gave her one and how happy she is!
Melted my heart to hear her saying that...
My hope and prayer for these two girls 
is that they can grow up to be 
best friends...
always be there for one another...
to be uplifting to one another...
To always remember how blessed they are
to have a sister!

Earlier this fall we spend a fair amount 
of time outside going on walks...
I'm sad now that the weather 
has turned too cold to spend 
much time outside...
Elsie usually is a pretty hard core bike rider...
she always rides her bike!
But sometimes she tries out her 
vintage roller skates!
She does pretty good on the skates...
but it never fails,
half ways down the alley she always wants to 
turn around and get her bike!
James loves his balance bike...
and he does so good on it!
I'm thinking that by the middle of next 
he will be ready for a big bike
with no training wheels!
I'm shocked to see how well those balance bikes work!

Picture over-load...
but he just looked so darn cute,
I had to put them all up...
even though he is in his

Bath Time...

Since the time change,
our days have suddenly gotten very long...
so we are back in the habit of an
{almost} daily soak in the tub!
I find this daily soak just as relaxing for me
as it is for them...
sometimes I just dangle my toes over the edge 
and soak in the warm water...
or I paint my toe nails...
all three of the kids will play in the tub for a 
long, long time...
and I'm not about to complain!
Angelina gets a bath often 3x a day
{because she is a messy eater!}
so she gets SO excited when the kids get in the tub
with her!
We all
Love, love, love
bath time...

My OneYear Old...

It seems like that first year of life just flies by...
sometimes I look at my one year old baby 
and still expect to see the tiny 7lb baby she started out as.
You can so tell that Angelina is 3rd child...
this girl  can hold her own...
I have a feeling she is going to be quite the little 
spit-fire girl!
One day James had taken a toy away from her,
She screamed and took the toy back...
she then used that toy to whack her brother on the head!
I didn't know if I should have disciplined 
James for taking the toy,
or her for hitting!
Guess they worked it all out!
Angelina has a favorite place...
the little rocking chair beside her crib. 
If ever she is missing,
I find her,
all alone in the bedroom,
just rocking. 
Too cute!
Her other favorite thing to do is 
feed her baby doll.
She loves dolls.
She will find a doll bottle and a baby
and sit and feed and feed her baby!
Melts my heart every single time!
I have a feeling Elsie is going to take after her 
sister and be a bag lady!
She already loves to find a bag and fill it full of 
She will usually just put a couple blocks in a bag,
carry it around for a few seconds,
then plop down and empty the bag again.
She is too funny...
and easily entertained!
Last week
{and this week}
Angelina has been working on teething...
last week the top eye teeth and molars popped through.
This week we are waiting on the lower
eye teeth and molars.
So she has kinda been a moody little thing!
moody or not...
Angelina can brighten any day with her sweet little smile
and hug.
Perfect little lady...

Fall Walks...

I think I've fallen way behind on blogging again...
This post is about a fall walk...
but in all reality,
Fall is pretty much over!
While we have no snow on the ground 
it is cold out...
so we pretty much keep to the indoors now
except for quick outside jaunts...

It was almost the peak of fall...
and such a nice day...
so we talked Auntie Ceara into joining us
on some local trails for a walk...

These pictures make me long for fall again!
For now,
I guess we will be contented to find indoor projects
to keep us busy...
