So thankful for this woman! She came for a couple of days to help us! It allowed us to get some things done around the house to get ready for the new school year. And I was able to go to the Mr.'s classroom for about 10 hours total to help him!

The kiddos loved having her around too!

Making banana bread for the Mr.'s open house!

Olivia found G's clothes and it was so funny...she got them and started rolling around on them and playing with them! 

So much fun!

Thank you GMama for all your help, love and support! We love you!

 So What Wednesdays! 
Go over to Life After I 'Dew' for more fun links!
Here is what I'm saying So What to this week:

So What If ...
  • The Mr. meets his kids this morning! :) I can't wait to hear about his students!
  • I've GOT to start going to bed earlier...4:30 is going to come early on Friday!
  • I think I've got most of the house organized enough to start the school year...I know I'll want to organize more in a few weeks...but time will be even more limited. 
  • I moved classrooms this year and was able to really go through and organize and rearrange my classroom...I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
  • I keep talking about organization!
  • I'm SO thankful for my MIL's help the last couple of days. :) And I know the kiddos have LOVED having her here! 
  • I'm planning the girls birthday party and fighting back tears while I do babies can't almost be ONE. :(

    Great Grandparent Visit

    My grandparents live in FL and we see them about once a year. They came and visited right after the girls were they were not even a week old. :) Well, they came in town this week and made the trip over to see us! It was a great visit and they really enjoyed playing with the kiddos! My grandma still gets on the floor to play with the sweet! 

    First set of grandkids! They have two others but they are much younger than us. 

    The four sisters...I LOVE when we are all together! Three of us are going to live in the same town starting in we just need to get B closer! 

    Dall and TJH..always having fun!

    Sweet M came over and took our picture for us! 

    Our kiddos with a set of their grandparents and a set of their GREAT grandparents! 

    It's hard to get all three looking at the camera when I'm not behind the camera! ha! :) 

    B and M played trains with TJH...he was in heaven! 

    We had a great visit! So glad they were able to come see the kids.

    First Day for the Mr!

    The Mr. starts his first teaching job today! Today is his first day of pre planning! He will meet his students later this week! 

    We are so proud of him!

    We've prayed for this so much in the past 2 and half years. 

    We can't wait to hear about his students and all of the funny things they do and all the wonderful things they learn from the Mr! 

    We love you Daddy and we are SO proud of you! 

    EKH & OCH Week 46

    Dear Emma Kate and Olivia,

    This week was fun! It was Mommy's last week of summer school! Daddy started working on getting his classroom set up and he started work this week. 

    Sweet M watched you girls and TJH a few times this week while Mommy and Daddy were both working. We are so thankful for her! :)

    Owie, you have SO many bumps and bruises on your are climbing on everything and getting into everything. We try to keep you safe but you're fast and tricky! 

    You girls loose all of these passys under your bed! :) 

    The first day that Daddy went to work in his classroom you all missed him sooo much! 

    You girls still have so much fun in the bath!

    EK you sleep in the funniest positions....even a split! 

    You girls love playing with your big brother. 

    We've had to block off the fire place but you were trying to find a way in. :)

    You girls found your big brother's cup and had some sips! Mommy got you girls your own cup. 

    This is what dinner time looks serving you girls and your brother dinner! :)

    Daddy made you kiddos a ball pit this week and you girls loved it! 

    New hat for Owie! You put that on your head all by yourself!

    O is for Olivia!

    Owie, you're so sweetest thing ever! You just came up to Mommy and hugged my leg. 

    You girls are IMPOSSIBLE to change your diaper and put your clothes on you because of all your movement.  When Daddy's in charge you are usually just in your diapers. :) 

    You two enjoy having your bottles together. And sometimes you take each others bottles. 

    Helping Daddy vacuum. 

    We had family visit this week and you girls loved all the attention. 

    You girls tried spaghetti for the first time this week. And you two LOVED it! 

    You girls signed more for seconds and thirds! 

    EK, you are so sweet and love to sit in our laps and talk to us. :) 

    But one of your very favorite things is when Daddy gets you! You girls laugh so hard!! 

     You girls are getting way to big! You are always talking so much!

    We love you so very much!
