Grandma and Grandpa visit

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit and we had a great time!!! We took Grandma for her very first visit to Disneyland! We all had a really great time. We also had a small party for Emily's birthday. Grandma and Grandpa got Emily a small doll cottage and Great Granny got her a royal family to play with in it. It was a HIT, both girls haven't stopped playing with it. We knew that Emily would love this, because she loves playing with Sofia's dollhouse. It is really fun to see her play just like Sofia does, and makes them go in through the door and sit in chairs.
It was really nice to have them here, we all miss them very much. Here are a couple of pictures from their visit.

Grandma and Grandpa's trip to Disney

Emily's birthday party. I made a GIANT chocolate chip cookie, because Emily LOVES chocolate chip cookies. Sofia thought this was amazing, and hasn't stopped talking about it. She asks me if I will make her one for her birthday, or maybe just another one today. It was a success I think.

Sofia loved all of the playmates. Here is Sofia and Grandma playing outside, even though it was unseasonably cold. Grandma was a good sport.

March Madness

So March has been CRAZY!!! Crazy fun, busy, and more. So we have had the good- friends come and visit, the bad- everyone being sick, and the ugly- we have gone to the ER twice in the last week! So here are pictures to describe it all:

Sofia got the flu, and then scarlet fever. I have never seen her so sick. She just layed there with a 105 degree fever. It was awful! But after she got better I took her to LA to see the American Girl place with her doll (my doll) Jazzis.

Emily is really starting to grow up, and stand up, and we are seeing her cute little personality. She absolutely loves to dress up. It is really funny. She asks you to put stuff on, and then just sits there with it on for hours, and laughs and plays. Her favorite outfit to wear is Sofia's snow white costume.

We had some very dear friends visit. It was super fun. It was a couple friend of ours from Maryland Jeff and Jenn. They have kids almost our kids ages so it was super fun. I loved how busy our house was. We miss them already! We went to Disney for two days, then to Kidspace (a science museum in Pasadena), went to the LA zoo and basically just had fun.

Then we all got the stomach flu. Chad and Emily got it the worst. Emily actually ended up in the hospital twice. She was sick for an entire week with it. Hopefully she is better and will remain well now.

marriage material

Sofia and I were having lunch the other day and just talking and having a great conversation. I asked her, " Sofia who is your best friend?" And she replied, "Carter, I just love that boy. I want to marry him." So I said, " Sofia that is a great idea. You know I married my best friend." She paused and started to think for a minute, and then said "what's his name mommy?" I said, " Chad." To which she replied, " that story sounds awfully familiar." I just started dying laughing and said, that story is awfully familiar:)

Are you ready to rock?

Sofia loves music. She always has. She is also quite the ham. I just love that she dresses up, and has her own style. Here she is giving a great performance!
