December 2014

 Daddy taking a break from playing guitar and singing for us.   ; )
 Dancing to Daddy tunes.
 Daphne is getting to be a big dog.  : )
 Riding my doggie.  Poor Daphne, Dave was trying to keep Sarah from getting in the way of picture taking and Daphne was overwhelmed while Maggie tries to ride her.  Heh.
 Taking a picture with her Mr. Potato Head.
Aw.  Shelby (also known as Belby by Sarah) dog with the girls.  So cute.

Guess I could do an update here.  Maggie is growing and learning how to share toys with Sarah even when she is done playing with what Sarah picks up.  She has had a few growth spurts lately and just a wonderful, thoughtful young lady.  Maggie is a very good Mama's helper and runs to get her sister when she wakes from a nap.  Sarah is getting a few teeth all at once at the moment, about 5 or 6.  She started walking early last month, in her 15th month.  She will repeat anything you say.  She has been saying short phrases since 10 months old, like "Thank you" and "there you are."  The other day I said excellent to her and she repeated it right back.  Pretty cool after her brother and sister thought about words you said a few times and then tried them.  Nope, Sarah just repeats things right back.  I'm always amazed at how fast kids pick up things at this age.  Sarah is no different.  I ask her to find things for me and she will and if I say something about where to find like a baby doll she's looking for, well, you better go do it now, heh.  We were looking for her baby doll the other day, could not find it anywhere.  I said maybe its downstairs somewhere.  Well, she was like "downstairs."  And then she started saying "come on" and patting her leg desperately trying to get me to go look downstairs with her.  So stinking smart and cute.  She is definitely the crazy one too.  Just will fly at you so you can catch her and say "gotcha."  We'll have to watch out for this spunky one.  She loves to laugh.

Happy Birthday Maggie Mae!!

My big 'ol 3 year old!!  My only pic of the whole day, but a good one.  Very mellow party.  Maggie's not a fan of big and crazy.  Here she is with her friend Jordan.  : )
 Maggie wants me to take a picture of her so she can see it and most of the time I have to get her to smile longer before she comes and looks at it.  lol
 Got spoons?
 Maggie and Sarah on the Y bike.
 Foot off the table.  Reminds me of Harry Potter #4 when Mr. Weasley asks Fred and George to get their feet off the table.  Their voices are in my head.  lol  I think I've watched Harry Potter too much, maybe?
 Maggie loves to push her sister around on the Y bike.
 And yes, I got the matching sister shirts.  They were on clearance.  I had to!
My clean-up crew.  We were getting ready for Maggie's party.
