A couple Fun Things

Well first of all we got a new car!! I know what everyone is thinking, usually when you have kids you go bigger, but we decided to go for more economical with Brad commuting. Brad picked the color, he said he has been wanting an orange car for years, so I gave in. I'm getting used to it but still fell like I really stand out when I'm driving it!!Madison had her first sleepover!! Matt and the kids were in town and came over Friday night and spent the night!! They had so much fun!!
Saturday we all got up and went to the lake and got REALLY dirty!! All the kids got covered in dirt!!

And Emma just ATE the dirt!!

We had so much fun with Matt and the kids and were sad to see them leave but it is SO much nicer with them closer so we get to see them more often!!!

Play Room

Well we finally did it!! We put the girls in the same room!! And now have a play room! We decided to put them both in Madison's room because Emma's is right by the front door and was always woken up by knocking or the door bell!!I have to say I was really worried about it, but its been great!! The girls love it!! The first night they were up for about an hour, after we put them to bed, laughing!! It ended with Madison in the crib and us telling her she had to stay in her own bed!!
They had a lot of fun "helping" switch the rooms and now they love it even more because they have a play room!
Emma has been the most helpful! She kept pulling everything out of the boxes, exspecially the necklaces. We definitely have another girly girl! Whenever there is anything that can go around her neck like a necklace she is putting it on!!
Now Emma is always in the playroom!! Most of the time in this chair, apparently its her favorite!! Its great though, she goes in there forever and just plays and I don't have to worry about her getting into anything she shouldn't. We still have a lot of things we want to get done in the room but even without it done its a huge success!!

It was a long day with the wedding, lunch in, and reception but everything was beautiful and the girls just love their Aunt Heather!!

One Year Pictures

I had my friend take pictures of Emma for her year photos and thought I would share some.
I can't believe how good they turned out, the little model was not in the best of moods!! I guess that's how you know you have a great photographer when you still get fabulous pictures!!
I LOVE this one!! I love how sweet she looks. And I just love her teeth, weird I know but I think they are so CUTE!!
This is Brad's favorite of the three, don't let this one fool you, she's a little beast!!

I just love her smile!!

Thanks SO much Corrine!! You did such a great job!!

My Little Peanut

(Em and her Aunt Liz)
Well we took Emma to her one year appointment and she has followed in her sister's footprints!! She is skinny, short, and big headed!!
She weighs 16 lbs. 13 oz.
28 1/4 inchesand her head is 46cm.
Which puts her in the less then 3rd percentile for her weight, 25th for her length, and 75th for her head!!!
My poor big headed children!! ( I just have to say THAT, is from the Lewis side!!)
The funny thing is she is about a pound lighter then Madison at this age and a little less then a inch longer!!
It will be interesting to see who will be taller!!

Zucchini Bread

My friend posted a zucchini bread recipe on her blog and I had zucchini from our garden (which I don't actually like, Brad planted it) so I decided to try it out!! I have never made zucchini bread but it sounded good, I figured if anything Brad and the girls would like it. AND... ...the reviews were good!!! Everyone loved it!! Even me!! The best part about cooking it was the recipe called for Cinnamon and while it was cooking my house smelled like churros!! You can never go wrong with that!!
