Beautiful weather and 2 birthdays

Our girls have birthdays ten days apart. We had family parties this year and it was very laid back and a lot of fun! Here are some pictures from our celebrations.

I made a rustic carrot cake. It was healthy and delicious (although not very pretty).

This is typical. MJ is always eating off of someone’s plate. That girl loves to eat!

My in-laws have a walking trail on the back of the property. Each grandchild has a sign on the trail. K was our tour guide!

K is now 6 and MJ is 2. They are both so much fun and keep us on our toes. K asks a lot of questions and she LOVES to learn. She also loves to climb trees, get dirty and help Adam on the farm. K is our chicken whisperer! MJ is fiesty but her facial expressions always make us smile. She has a mind of her own and is always more than willing to share what she thinks. She loves to be busy, do yoga with me, be outside with Adam and she LOVES to have her nails painted. She is very dainty and a little obsessed with shoes. MJ is officially potty trained, she sleeps in a big girl bed and we took away her paci. I no longer have a baby 😦

The baby takes a paci and sucks on it and says, “Mama, Dada, knock-knock” and then laughs. It is also cries unless you pat its back. She loves it!!!

She is so dainty she had difficulty wanting to tear the paper. Aunt Debbie and Grandmommy had to help!
