Abby is (Almost) One!!

Abby will be 1 this Tuesday! We had her Abby Cadabby party yesterday.

She was very into present opening, although she didn't go quite fast enough to please Bethany.

And, as you can imagine, she devoured her cake.

And tried to devour her plate...

Then we spent a half hour blowing this up to watch the kids try out Abby's new ball pit!

It's hard to believe our baby is already going to be one... and this is our last crazy hat birthday group picture... (unless we decide another birthday warrants it. 10 perhaps??)

President's Day

We spent our President's Day swimming, playing Candy Land, and enjoying a whole day together as a family!

Turning 30

That's right, I'm officially 30 years old! We spent last Saturday celebrating. Matthew finally got me a replacement sewing machine (WAY nicer than my original one.) We had a (rather embarrassing) meal at Red Lobster, and a small surprise party back at our house! LOVED IT!!!!

Singing in the Car

This is a daily occurrence in our house, but I took a video assuming some day I'll miss this little routine!

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day!

A couple days late on this, but we did manage to at least get hearts on all three girls Monday. And believe it or not, this was probably the best of the many pictures I took trying to get them all on the same page--or in the same photograph, as it were:

What can I say? I've got one girl who isn't yet 1, and they've all got a cousin who isn't exactly the least distracting boy in the world (love you, Jonas!). As in sports, there's always next year!

Winter Fun Day?

We took the girls to Camp Pioneer for their "Winter Fun Day", and because our girls aren't exactly snowbirds, we spent most of it... inside.

Abby Sleeps

Oh, and Abby is a crazy sleeper, if not a heavy one:

The Rest of January

Ok, so we have been awful at posting lately. The reason is simple: we have been awful at taking pictures lately. We're hoping we can right that ship, but in the meantime, here's a (very) few shots of a bit of what we did in the second half of last month.

We spent a weekend in Columbus, where we were treated to a visit from my second cousin, Amanda (who is awesome).

Speaking of Amanda's awesomeness, she was nice (and brave) enough to let our older daughters play with what looked to be her very expensive camera. Here's a few shots of Bethers doing just that:

Also, we took the girls to a bounce-house with some friends of ours, and of course, they had a great time:

And there you have it. Those pictures are, believe it or not, the bulk of our picture-taking for the rest of January. Hopefully more will be coming, but feel free to nag us to get on the ball!
