Back to the Grind

Well baby girls, this week we ALL went back to school.  Boo!  We were very tired.  As a reward for getting through the week, we had pizza and game night on Friday night.  It was so much fun.

On Saturday we decided to go to the movies.  We saw the new Annie.  I think you enjoyed it.  I had a good time with you girls.

You sang the whole ride home.  :)

I love you girls so much!  I can't even remember what my life was like before you came into my life.  You have been such a blessing.  I love watching you grow.  I keep praying that God will touch your hearts and lives in a BIG way!  I pray that you will grow to love Him with all of your heart!

I love the memories that we are making!  BTW...58 days until our next trip to Disney!  Woo-hoo!

I love you with all my heart baby girls!!

2013 & 2014 Came and Went...

Dear Mia & Lyla-Boo,
My hope for journaling through 2013 & 2014 went out the window.  We just got so busy!  You girls have been growing so much!
We had a busy year in 2013 & 2014.  Mia, you are currently in Kindergarten at Memorial Middle School.  Mrs. Sherwin is your teacher.  We love her.  Lyla, you are currently in Pre-K at Oak Brook Day School.  Ms. Danielle is your teacher (Mia, you had her last year) and we love her too!

We had a great trip to Disney this past summer.  Actually, at this point you've been to Disney about 5 times.  :)  We're planning a small trip in March when we go to see Poppy and then again in June for Lyla-Boo's 5th birthday (we were there for Mia's 5th birthday this past summer).

We also spent some time at the beach with family and friends this past summer.  We ended up being gone for a month.  It was a lot of fun!
You girls have been busy the past two years taking Ballet.  This semester, we are going to try something different and you'll be doing Gymnastics.

This past Christmas, you met your great-grandparents, Bobby & Rachel.

You girls keep me on my toes constantly and you keep me laughing all the time.  I love life with you!  I can't remember what my life was like before you girls!  I love you girls to the moon and back!  I pray that you never forget that!  You are my precious gift from Jesus!  As Lyla likes to whisper in my ear, "I'm so glad that Jesus gave you to me!"  I'll try to do better this year journaling our life together.

With all my love,
