Double Digits

My beautiful first child turned TEN yesterday. I reminisced by going through the album that documents her birth and first few months. The memory of her that young is still fresh, feeling like yesterday. And yet ten amazing years have gone by. Raising Jessica is a Joy. She is fun and smart, loving and caring. She is a huge help to me all of the time. I am more grateful for her than I could ever express in words.

Six years old!

"Healthy" pea and carrot cupcakes to share with her class.
She decided she wanted an owl cake for her birthday.
She helped me make everything... the cake, fondant, modeling chocolate, frosting, and filling. But I put it all together after she went to bed. She was surprised and delighted with the results.
Happy Birthday Ica, we love you so much!!

Wally Golly!

Wally, is a cutie. He is the most happy baby we have had. As most of you know, as long as you are talking to him he is smiling! Here are just a few pictures I have snapped of him lately.

This photo is one of many that Sammy took trying to get a good shot for a competition that she is entering.

It isn't easy being this cute... gotta rest!

Wally has been standing a lot more lately. He is still really unsure, but likes that he can get into more now!
Isn't he handsome!!!

Bath Night!

Every other night is bath night in our home. The other night it was super exciting because I got new foam curlers for the girls so after their baths (actually they all took a shower), I put the curlers in their hair. They kept calling each other "Grannie"! I think they look cute!

We covered the curlers to keep them from falling out... this look is slightly less cute!!

The boys took a bath (no curlers for them!) I took a couple of cute shots and wanted to share... they both LOVE the water!
