Emma loves Brooks!!

Emma went to spend the night with a friend. But she knows how upset Brooks gets when she's gone so she left him a love note and a note for me and Ben to take care of him. Too cute!!

He loved finding the note for him! It made it a little easier that big sister was away!

Yogurt Mountain goodness...YUM!

Emma loves to go to Yogurt Mountain! This was actually Brooks' idea but then he changed his mind at the last minute and decided he didn't want to go. Me and Emma already had it in our head we we were getting some Yogurt Mountain goodness so off we went!

We enjoyed our girl time though!

Emma's 6 year check up...

We went Monday afternoon for Emma's 6 year checkup. She was absolutely perfect which we are so thankful for! Here are a few pictures I got of the 2 of them at the doctor's office.

She weighed in at 56.4 lbs and was 47 inches tall. That puts her in the 90% for weight and 88% for height. He said her proportions for weight and height were right on. So blessed to have 2 healthy kids!

SERVE Day 2013

Every year in July our church gets together to do a SERVE day throughout our community. You can do it with your small group, with a group of friends, join in someone else's group or do it on your own. This year we decided to do something for SERVE day that included the kids. The prior 2 years it's just been me doing SERVE day and this year I thought Emma was old enough to truly get it. She was looking forward to it for weeks to come. We decided that we'd make our firemen and policemen feel loved and special and thank them for all they do. Here are some pictures from our day.

Olivia, Emma, Brooks and Mylee getting the bags of cookies ready!

She was such a big helper!

She started working on pictures before that day and Olivia joined
in when she got there. (I can't help but laugh at Ellie who is in
the middle of it all).

We had a great day and Emma had the best time as did all the kiddos. Emma was such a good helper and made me so proud. I enjoyed getting to make those special memories with her.

Weekend pictures

We had a fun filled weekend, that was pretty relaxing. Friday night the kids decided to go swimming. I think they would live in the pool if we'd let them.

Saturday was SERVE day at our church and I'm going to do a seperate post on it because I have a lot of pictures to share. But Saturday afternoon when we were done, Amber and Jacob and Colyn came to swim for a little bit. I didn't get any pictures of them all except this one of Emma catching some sun!
Saturday night after bath Emma decided she wanted wavy hair for church so we decided to try and do 4 braids to see how it turned out.

It was ABSOLUTELY precious! Her hair has some natural wave to it so it did great.

All ready for church!

Emma, Olivia and Mylee after church!

It was a great weekend and we had a lot of fun! More to come on SERVE day!

Catching some ZZZzzzz's.....

One night last week I walked out of the room for just a minute and walked back in to all 3 (Brooks, Emma and Ellie) fast asleep on the couch. I had to snap a picture because they looked so cute and comfy. Ellie's never far from them at all.

They are so precious to me! I am so blessed to be called their mom and forever thankful!

Weekend Fun

Here are pictures from the rest of our 4th of July weekend!

Saturday morning we got up and made blueberry muffins. Here is Emma helping.

After that we got ready and headed to Jackson's 2nd birthday and I didn't get any pictures from it!When we got home, even though the weather was still rainy, wet and dreary Amy, Mark, Braegan, Amber, Jarred, Jacob and Colyn came over to grill out. Sadly I didn't get any pictures of the rest of the day except this one I snapped of Emma swimming in the rain. The water was freezing but they didn't care.
Sunday we got up and headed to church. When we left church we headed to the Bass Pro Shop to get some stuff and see the fish! Here are some pictures from there.

When we got home from the Bass Pro Shop, I decided it was FINALLY time to take Brooks to get his haircut. I've been trimming the front, back and around his ears for a VERY long time now. The last haircut we got they messed it way up so I wanted all of it to grow out and fix itself before we went anywhere else. We tried somewhere new and it was a huge success. Here is a picture after we got home.
He was hesitant to go but he said it was so much better! It was too cute! After we were home for a little bit we finally saw SUNSHINE!! We were so excited but knew the pool was too cold after they were in it Saturday that I decided we'd go to the park and soak up some rays!

It was a fun long weekend that started Thursday the 4th and we made the most of it even if the weather didn't want to cooperate.
