My Girl is 4!

Yesterday Molly turned 4. She seemed to grow a strong opinion over night. She is so big. She got a bike for her birthday and as soon as the rain clears up... she will get to ride it again. We went to my in-laws on Saturday. Their town celebrated their 100 yr annv. There was a parade and fireworks that night. Of course, Molly assumed these things were for her birthday. I sure didn't tell her any different. She also got lots of elephant things. For example, her cake that her Nonie made. I don't know why, but, she loves elephants. I love this girl!

Michelle and Her Girls Came

A little over a week ago, my friend Michelle came to town with her twin girls, Emma and Addison. We had a great time. Michelle and I grew up together and have talked about her coming to visit for many years. The kids played and played. Michelle and I sewed and sewed. We ended up making 6 dresses, 3 pairs of flower flip flops, 2 pairs of pantaloons, and we intended to make more. There just weren't enough hours in the evenings. We were exhausted to say the least by the weekend's end, but made some great memories.

We had fun girls, can't wait to see you again!

Backyard Camping

A couple of weeks ago. Joel set up the tent in the backyard so that he could let Molly and him sleep outside all night. They seem to have a blast. They watched a movie in the tent, had snacks. Joel didn't think she would make it all night, but they didn't come back in the house until 7 the next morning.

3 Turning 4

Today, Molly and her friends Bryce and Walker celebrated turning 4 this month. Their birthdays are less than 2 weeks away from each other. So, the mamma's decided we could share in the excitement and invite friends from Bible class to a morning swim party. It was a lot of fun. The kids each had a bday treat. Molly has cupcakes, Bryce wanted cookies and Walker wanted Cheetos. The water was cold, but that didn't stop the swim fun.
