What we have been up too lately...

Yes, I have been very lacking on the blog posts lately. There just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to get everything done, and posting pictures seems to fall at the bottom of the list every time. But, I know how much out family (Hi, Grandma Shirley!) and friends like to check to see new pictures of the girls, so here is a quick recap of our past couple of months.

There have been many, many days playing with leaves in the yard.
Who knew leaves could be so much fun for little girls?  

Although all theses leaves offered hours of entertainment for the girls, they weren't as fun at times for the big people around here. But I don't think Daddy has really much to complain about, he does get to suck most of them up with his lawn tractor after all! 
As the weather turned colder, and snow started to fall - it was time for out new winter jackets and snow pants. Which they of course, also find wildly entertaining to put on INSIDE the house and try running around chasing each other.
And a quick video for the Grandmas and Grandpas of the girls in their snow suits. No idea how to change it so it is not sideways, so just turn your heads ;)

Other things that keep them entertained include building structures or stacking items out of everyday things - because apparently those colorful blocks we bought just aren't sufficient. Thank goodness for Costco.
We also took the girls bowling with friends one evening, to make it even more fun they turn out the lights and turn on the black lights. The girls love bowling and ask regularly to go back, it certainly is a fun way to spend a winter evening inside with good friends.

So there's a quick recap of our last couple of months. Since we are already into the Holiday season, I will try to make it back soon to post some more pictures.


  1. Well, it looks like a good kind of busy! A lot of fun… Keep posting!

  2. Love the photos and the update! We need to get togetehr soon!

  3. I am with you. It is so hard to post, but when I look back at all the memories and how they have grown it keeps me going. Priceless. My girls love to bowl too. Are yours close to the same size?? Maelyn is quickly passing up petite little Lily who can still wear a 3T! Your little ones look so happy!!!! Isn't it awesome to have two so close to the same age? I thank God for it daily.
