Girls just want to have fun!!!

We love it when my sister Tami comes to visit. Her daughter Tori is the same age as Kiera and they are two peas in a pod. I literally did not see Kiera most of the week they were here. Those two had more fun together and I was able to enjoy some good girl bonding. Thanks Tami for a great time together!!!!
Crafts like stamping and stickers are great fun together...
So are Fancy Nancy tea parties with our dolls whom we both named "Ivy"...
And we even learned about slumber parties...that ended at 10pm when we were beside ourselves from being too tired that we had to go to our own rooms...note to all mom's out there...when your daughter asks, "What's a slumber party?", DO NOT ATTEMPT! We should have known better, but they had fun staying up late! We'll wait another 5 years before trying again.
Fairy and Princess paper dolls top off a very fun week together! Kiera already misses you Tori!
(Notice the ever present Tinkerbell and Princess costumes...their two favorite things).

Random pictures

We took this picture for Oma...the boys LOVE books. Here they are reading together!
One of their favorite places to play...behind the end table...and then they get stuck!
Now that they have mastered the stairs, they love to play on them. Their most favorite thing to do is throw shoes down since our garage door is right at the top and all our shoes are setting there. Now the shoes hang out at the bottom, and I don't even have to put them there! They have also started throwing other things...doll strollers, cars, sippy cups...all which I don't catch in time. Thankfully they haven't started throwing each other. But every time I hear something go down the stairs, I pause to listen just to make sure it wasn't a person! In this picture they were very quiet, so I went to check on them. They had found some old magazines and were quietly looking at them and ripping them apart.
We decided to learn to cut the boys hair ourselves, since it will save us quite a bit. Here is Joel after his and Caleb before. They were getting quite shaggy! (Kiera had to sneak in the pic too!)

These boots were made for walkin'...

Ryan wore these boots when he was little. We thought we would try them on the boys...
