Here’s a few pictures from our beach trip this year!
Potty Training January 19, 2015
It’s all fun and games…
until you actually have to sit on the potty.
But they say it takes a village.
Lily turned 6 last week! Ted was out of town on her actual birthday so we celebrated as a family the night before.
We went to Kids Place to let the girls play.
They weren’t afraid of anything.
And neither was Ted 😉
And then celebrated at home and she opened her gifts from us. She wanted to save the others so she had something to open on her actual birthday. Ava and Ellie made her a Build-A-Bear, which she was thrilled about.
On her actual birthday, we took cupcakes to her school and ate lunch with her. Ava and Ellie got to practice being a kindergartner.
Happy 6th Birthday, Lily!!
We had a great Christmas 2014.
Ava had a Christmas play at school and she made a mighty cute sheep.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed decorating.
We went to the Awaited show in Cincinnati with Pop Pop and Nana, who came to spend Christmas with us. We didn’t get a family picture this year at the show, but I just love this one of Ava and Nana.
And we just had a great Christmas!
Anna Grace and Josiah came to visit us the week before Christmas. They stayed a week and we had a great time.
They played outside a lot.
And played inside a lot.
When you are the youngest of five kids and it is Christmas time, you end up being baby Jesus in the manger…or baby Ellie in the toy box. I’m not sure baby Jesus had a pillow but it was nice of the kids to think of it for Ellie .
Oh yea, PaPa came too 😉
And Josiah got some ‘man time’ in the basement with PaPa.
And you can’t come to Lexington without seeing horses. These are just a few houses down the road from us and nobody got bit! Success!
Although things got a little scary at times…
In the end, I think everyone had fun.
Ellie got a big girl bed! We bought another bunk bed and Ellie is sleeping on the bottom bunk, in the same room as her sisters. She did great adjusting and we had an extra bed just in time for their cousins to visit.
