Playground peekaboo

I dunno, Emma. I think we could have found better hiding places.

Outdoor posing

What? Don't you carry a blankie around when you're wearing a new necklace?

Eating worms

Pop always says he's gonna give me worms for dinner, but he never told me how good they are! Of course, he might not be talking about gummi worms...

And now for an original composition to help relax you:

Emma's 2nd birthday party

Birthdays are fun, but parties are even better. You get to have so much more at parties.

First, off, you get awesome cookies that spell out your name. 

Then you get cake. I don't know why Lexi went for the chocolate icing, because the blue flavor was sooo much better. 

And you get dancing (Lexi was the best help with that.)

And you get more presents! 

Now I know why Jonathan wants to have these all the time. Can we do it again next weekend?

Happy birthday to me (part 2, version 2)

Jonathan told me today that we have to check in on that bear on every birthday, because he really worries that it isn't growing as fast as the two of us. I think he's crazy, because my pictures look exactly the same as the last two years.

Just look: Here I am two years ago this week:

And here I am a year ago:

And today? Exactly the same:

I mean, yes, I have a much cooler "Finding Dory" shirt on, but besides that? It's like nothing has changed at all.

Horseback riding

We had so much fun playing with Maddie and Emily over Labor Day, I forgot to post my annual picture riding a pony at our church's fall festival. This year's ride was so bumpy, my sunglasses almost fell off.  

Maddie love the ride too. Emma and Emily are both still a little too young for the big saddles, but we'll get them both up there next year.

Climbing practice

Yeah, she's already doing that.

Cooking smores with the godfather

Thanks to a visit from the DiFulvio clan over the holiday weekend and some makeshift fire pit work by Dad and Uncle Anthony, we had smores for dessert! First you have to cook the marshmallows. 

Second you have to cook the marshmallows more. That part takes a while. 

And third? You eat everything and make a horrible mess. It was so awesome.

Going to the clothes store

You don't understand -- we love seeing this dog statue! It's cute and quiet and doesn't make any mess at all!

Light saber training

Hey, you gotta start somewhere if you want to be a Jedi.
