I realized that it has been a while since I have made a post full of pictures. The time to correct that is now…

Why choose between dancing in the Elsa wig or the fairy wings? Wear both!
These two ladies were such fun company for a girls night away… we laughed and laughed and laughed…
Helping Grandma and Great Aunt Vicki blow out birthday candles.
One thumb sucker, one faker.
Trying on costumes before Halloween.
Playing on the slide on a beautiful Fall day.
Ava is a quick one! I turn around and she’s gone and she’s already on the counter.
There’s a cute little Pumpkin Patch not far from here. The girls had a great time!
A late night walk in the wagon for ice cream.
I always thought it was a basket for holding a roll of toilet paper.
Dave’s sister Mary made the girls these costumes from NYC! All she had was the pattern for Elsa and the girls’ measurements! I’m still very impressed! Both costumes were perfect and the girls had a great time with Halloween this year!
Adelynn’s dance class wore their costumes during Halloween week. The parents were all taking pictures of them. Dave and I were both standing in the back when Ava got away from us…
She went and plopped down front and center. All the parents AWW’d in unison.
That little one is fearless! She does everything her big sister does.
Living room fort time!
Celebrating with glow sticks. And Merlin & Barb.
One of my daughters colored on the wall with sharpie…
But they both worked to clean it off.
Poor Ava is always learning things the hard way. This is after her curiosity got the best of her and she touched the stove.
Dancing on the XBOX.
So I walk into Adelynn’s room and this is what I see.
Helping Grandma & Grandpa decorate their tree.
Helping put ornaments on Great Grandma & Great Grandpa’s tree.
Listening intently to Aunt Mary talk.
Trying on ugly stuff at Goodwill together.
Life is good when you have breakfast and My Little Pony.
It was time to replace the bows on our Christmas tree. I spent an afternoon making new ones!
Everyone loved the wreath I was making for my mom…
I also made one for myself!
We got a new Christmas tree. Of course the box was the best part and quickly became a train.
I came home one night and found this. I love the love Adelynn and Bruce have. But I also love that husband of mine who didn’t have the heart to ask Adelynn to take off her wings.
Everything is a backpack.
A piece of cardboard from the Christmas tree box then became a car track.
This girl cracks me up with her My Little Pony mask. She got it at a birthday party in August. A few days later she had a birthday party to go to. So, naturally, she wore it there. Then her cousin’s birthday was a few weeks ago. Here she is in the car on the way to the party.
After the party, her Grammy took her to make gingerbread houses at our local town hall. She sent me this picture. She might have been the only kid in there with a pony mask on, but she rocks it!
After climbing on the piano bench, the girls said “Ta da!”
I got to go shopping with Queen Elsa. All the other shoppers loved seeing her in person 🙂
After her Christmas program at preschool. She did a great job! She sang all the songs nice and loud and did all the actions! She is so happy when she is performing.
Borrowing Grandma’s binoculars.
Right before her winter dance recital. She did a great job and loved every minute of being on the stage!
Again with the backpacks. She cracks me up 🙂
When she won’t go to sleep, it’s probably because she needs her Daddy and her fairy wings.
Singing into Grammy’s cane.
Wearing the armrest cover as a hat at Great Grandma’s.
We had to check to see why she was sleeping so good. Of course, because she had Anna.
The days after Christmas are the best. I love to see them having fun with all of their new things while we enjoy some time at home together as a family.
A new to us piano! It is over 100 years old and I think it’s beautiful!
All is calm… and a little fake 😉
