helloooooooooo again

I received multiple comments in the last month from disappointed blog readers (if you can be called a reader when there is nothing to read)... My iphone blogger app decided to stop working, so that's set me back. I was also in my first trimester of PREGNANCY for a few months... so cut me some slack!!

here's a link to some december pictures... not sure how Google+ works. but that's instead of picasa now apparently. It's amazing how technology changes if you slack off for a couple months.

I can't figure out how to do a slideshow like I did before. I will try and get a video up asap though.
the girls are super-fun these days... busy as ever and growing so fast! And we have another little one due May 16! WHOOHOO we are crazy.

"Come on, Prince!"

Molly is currently obsessed with ballet. So, this is what JC comes home to these days. :) I like Caroline's renditions, too.

just a random video.

This morning, while I was making breakfast, I heard Molly reading to Caroline in the other room. Of course when I sneak in with the camera, Caroline decides she's had enough. :) You get the idea!

This can be a very challenging stage we're in with two little rascals... but cute things they do throughout the day make it SO joyful!! Like Caroline saying "mommy" and "daddy" (as opposed to mama and dada) and trying to copy molly's crazy dance moves. And Molly making up little songs throughout the day, and saying things like, "Daddy, I don't want to be a grown-up. I just want to be a big, big, BIG kid." Wisdom from a three-year-old!!

port sheldon 2K12!

We had a wonderful 10 day trip to Port Sheldon, Michigan in July. It was such a nice break for all of us - so much relaxing involved! Here's a sampling of pics.

 after jumping some "big" waves...
 mubber and poppy. everyone loved having them around!
 i love it - caroline smiles for pictures now when you ask her. a scrunchy smile. :)
 S'more face!!
 view from the cottage deck.
 caroline... now a daddy's girl just like molly.
 first time in pigtails!
 molly makes a blueberry pie with boo boo!
 daddy's tee-shirt as a coverup.
 caroline loving her mini blueberry pie that molly and boo boo made.
 love these!!

 make-your-own burger night.
 canoeing with paw paw, molly and me.
 caroline watches with boo boo from the dock.
 trying to feed the girls dinner at the beach.
 walk on the beach!

 bear crawling on the beach. don't know where this started but sometimes the girls just bear crawl around the house together. we always get a kick out of it!
 beach napping with boo boo. (pretending to nap, that is.) I'm sure it is especially comfortable for boo boo to have caroline's wet rear in her face.
 some reading in their jammies.

fourth of july

Here's a little fourth of july catch-up. at our city parade that went right by our neighborhood. the girls got a huge kick out of it!

 playing in our front yard. all-american style!

 Molly hit a line drive right to JC... I'm showing off my photography skills.

another great action shot by mom... and even better catch by molly! :)
