7yrs flying by

Where did time go? We're we too busy, or having too much fun? Is this How it is with the 2nd child ask the time? Someone once told me when you become parents the days seem really long but the years are very short. ....SO true!   I feel like I am constantly reminding myself to soak it all in!

To my pretty princess - how do I even put into words the beauty of your uniqueness! You have marble eyes that change with your mood, freckly cheeks and a lions mane.   You are your biggest contradiction, the yin to your own yang, big warrior and little chicken!   You are equal parts courageous and cautious, personality and peace, humor and reservation.   I am constantly amazed by you and in many ways feel like I am still getting to know you. You are mysterious!

We are always saying you were put in earth to make your sister laugh.   You can throw her into fits of giggles with just one look.   Just your outlook and comments on everyday life cracks me up!  You seek peace and fight for understanding, you desperately need "Hannah time" to recharge. I still have no idea where you got your rhythm, one day I'm gonna wish you didn't know how to shake your booty :)  It warms my heart at the gentle way you care for Nana. 

I pray for you to be courageous in life, to continue to be curious about God and look for ways to share your radiant personality with the world!

Well we had a dramatic Sunday.   Hannah was in a hurry to change her clothes to play with her friends and she accidentally dragged a stool over her big toe.   After all the blood and hysteria calmed down we realized that she bent 1/2 her toenail back :( 
She got sent home from school for not having closed toe shoes so Mimi made it better with a pool day! 
On to the dr for antibiotics and a dr note.   With "funday Sunday" just around the corner it also meant a new pair of open toe shoes! 
So yesterday Olivia decided she would stove get dinner playing volleyball with the boys across the street.   I swear they are trying to give me a heart attack bf our big adventure.   They are in quarantine in the house until Sunday!!

Tye die sleepover

Happy Birthday Olivia!

Very blessed to be this girlie's mom and to be able to say that I'm a part of the young lady she is quickly becoming!  Proud of you sweet girl!

I'm sorry Livie to add to your birthday post but I couldn't leave out Hannah's 1st photo bomb!  I somehow see many more of these to come. 

Funday Sunday

So we have a big surprise for the girls this year for their birthdays! They have no idea.   The clue is neatly wrapped in this pretty box!   To keep it a surprise I asked them to give me free rein to plan whatever I wanted and they would not ask me what we were doing.   The only request I got was that they wanted to have fun from the time they opened their eyes until they went to bed.   I got that covered :)

We have been referring to it as "Funday Sunday" for a couple of months now and it all happens June 8th 6am!  We decided not to tell them until the night before so we are having a little reveal party disguised as a way to celebrate their birthdays with the family.

I can't wait to show them what's in the box!
