Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14

Yay for warmer days!

We have had some really warm weather here in Des Moines! Although it has been hit or miss, when it hits, we take advantage! Eliza LOVES the sprinkler, although she loves it a whole lot more if mommy runs through it with her! Adeline on the other hand wants nothing to do with it, and Landry loves just sitting in the grass watching it all take place! The girls also know that warmer days bring more park days, which is always a big hit! We have been so blessed to have such wonderful parks, I think Des Moines parks are amazing, I love them! I am hopeful that Kalamazoo will have some, but I am going to try not to compare! I hope you all are enjoying the weather as much as we are!
Landry loves Adeline's birthday gift just as much as the girls, and it helps that he has two personal chauffers to push him wherever he wants to go! He is spoiled by his sisters!

Addylou, we love you, but we see this face far too much around here these days! Have a wonderful day!

Hyvee Kids Fishing Derby!!!!

This past Saturday, Dan and I took the kids to the annual Hyvee Fishing Derby! It was so much fun! We had been planning it all week, and then the weather turned out to be cold and rainy, but we decided to give it a try anyways! I would recommend it, they load the water with a ton of fish, and some of them are tagged, well a lot of them are tagged, if you get a tagged fish, you get to go pick out a prize! We were not catching much the first half hour or so, then we caught a few, but none tagged, the kids were still having fun, but it was looking like we maybe should pack it up, when there were bites left and right! The girls both got to pick out a prize, and this is what they chose! It is so funny, b/c they went from being muddy, cold, wet, and dirty, to this, playing with their new vanitys! They though it was pretty cool, although like Dan said, they are never going to want to go regular fishing again! I on the other hand see my little girls' faces light up anytime their daddy asks them to go fishing, I know they will still love it!
They are definatly girls!

Eliza had a fish on her line here, she had just reeled it all the way in!

Look at Adeline's face in this picture!

Adeline is 2!!!!!!

Adeline turned 2 on friday! I cannot even begin to wrap my mind around this! It just seems like time flies faster and faster with each child! Sometimes I wish I had a pause button! We feel so blessed that the Lord has chosen us to be Adeline's mommy and daddy! She brings so much joy to our lives, and I cannot imagine life without her! Happy belated birthday Addy Lou! We love you soooo much!

Adeline's new smile!

Adeline was so proud to be this flamingo! She wore it well!

This brings tears to my eyes, she was the baby for 17 short months, but I know that she now could not imagine life without her baby brother!

Her first cupcake!
