A little update

Well it's been almost a month since my last post so despite the fact that I'm in desperate need of a nap I'm going to take a few moments to put a few updated pictures. Lydia is growing up so fast and has already lost that newborn look which I'm sad about:( However, she is pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!

All the girls in their Christmas dresses. I'm proud to say that I actually made some pieces and parts of these dresses, however the real credit goes to my talented mother in law for the real work!
And I thought I'd throw this in as a representation of what seems to be going on more often than not these days...lots of mischief! If you are ever wondering what happens when you leave a 2 and 3 year old alone to "watch a movie" and forget to block off access to the food storage and more specifically to about 20 packets of Hot Chocolate mix...this is it! Our basement had a nice dusting of Hot Cocoa all over it and still smells like chocolate several days later! And don't worry my girls don't mess with the cheap walmart brand they went for the nice expensive gourmet Hot Cocoa that was intended as Christmas gifts!

Merry Christmas!

They are so cute! I love how cute the girls look together in their beautiful dresses. I think Lydia steel has that new look. Its hard to believe that she is a month already.
I thought that my children was the only ones who got in to the food closet and in to the chocolate. They most smell right through the packaging. the latest thing is the Instant potatoes I guess they like to eat it plain with out cooking it. weird because they wont eat potatoes at all.
Can you email me your address

You have beautiful girls and I can't believe that you have three of them! They are adorable, Lydia is just precious. Any fun plans for Christmas?

Oh how cute is Lydia?! she is adorable. And that is really funny (not funny if it was at my house) about the hot chocolate. :)

Oh Kennos, she is just so pretty. I bet you are loving getting her and your other girls all dolled up. Oh and I hear ya about the naughtiness...but it was kinda funny too. How do you even begin to clean something like that up?

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh!! Kenna those dresses are adoreable!!!!!!! Lydia looks so big and so cute, and your bows and lydias headband are so so cute. Wish I could just squeeze the three of them:) That hot chocolate story is hilarious, they just look to cute and innocent! Everyone's got a little mischeif happening, we just had our haircut experience not long ago if it makes you feel any better!

I'm sorry Kenna, but I'm still chuckling over your girls getting in to the hot chocolate mix! They look so innocent in the picture, but as we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words. Even though they caused a bit of a mess, they are darling in this picture! Their Christmas dresses are so sweet too! Give them all a kiss for me. Is it just me, or does it smell like chocolate in here?-ha

Thanks for the update, I have been dying to see Lydia all dressed up.

All the girls are so darn cute!

What a great mom to celebrate the mischeif, take pictures, and blog about it!

This is the kind of stuff your kids will love to hear about years from now. They will laugh and laugh. You might laugh with them, YEARS from now, too! :)

Merry Christmas!

Kenna, I am in awe of your talents. Those dresses are to die for, and the fact that you helped make them is so impressive...especially since you have a newborn! I have to agree that little Lydia is pretty darn cute. I love her little bow. You were a pretty good sport about the cocoa incident. i would have been so mad that I wouldn't have even been able to take a picture :)
