Eve Angeline at 8 weeks...

Well Eve is 8 weeks old and is doing new things all the time. I forgot how quickly newborns change. She is a very happy baby. Smiling at anything. I tried to take a picture of her many looks. She tries to hit her toy now, she hit it a couple of times and let out a loud coo! We are really enjoying her!

Thanksgiving prep

Ok so I don't write on my blog for months and now I can't seem to stop. It just looks so clean and fun to update now. It's kinda like after I give my house a 'hard' clean I find myself wanting to just stay home, light a good smelling candle, drink an ice tea, and just relax.

This Thanksgiving is going to be a lot of fun. We are hosting some good friends over for dinner then 9 more are coming over for dessert after they all eat. So we will have a house full. I'm looking forward to it. I'm putting together the menu now. We are brining our turkey for the first time with an Alton Brown recipe. And I'm going to attempt to make a new gluten free cookie recipe since one of the families eat all gluten free. I'll let you know how it turns out and of course with pictures. We are staying in Iowa and are planning on a visit back home to Oklahoma for Christmas. I love this time of year.

Elise lovin' on baby Eve

As you can tell Elise loves her baby sister! Eve Angeline is  now 7 weeks old which doesn't seem possible. She coos now and gets so excited when you talk to her. She is FINALLY only waking up twice at night. Until now it was every 2 hours, which amazingly enough I haven't been that tired. She looks a lot like Emma did but has Elise's smile! There is never a dull moment in our house and I wouldn't change it!

Lego League

The kids participated in a Lego League for the first time and really enjoyed it! Ethan's group
built a pizza oven out of Lego's which turned out very cool. And Emma's group built a cheese and crackers factory.

 Emma in blue sweater explaining with her group about what they built. She is getting so much
better about talking in front of people.
 Ethan reading about what his group built in grey shirt.

I got a good laugh this morning when I saw Elise at the front door just hanging out in MY old flip flops in her diaper drinking a bottle. She usually drinks out of her sippy cups but every now and then she requests her drink in her old bottle since we had Eve. Not sure what she was waiting for.:)
We have so busy I have had NO extra time to even look at our blog. In fact I had to reset my password to even update our blog! I just noticed I never even announced that the arrival of our newest baby, Eve Angeline. She is now 7 weeks old. And we celebrated Elise's big 2nd birthday last month. I will update with some pictures soon. We are feeling very blessed. I changed the background, fonts, and colors of our blog all by myself, it is so easy now with blogger which is saying a lot since I'm not a computer savy person.:)
