love, valentines, slime, babies and permits

I've been on an organizing kick lately.  All of our memories and photos have been looked at and kept or thrown.  What was fun, was finding all of the emails, cards and letters that Daddy and I sent to each other before and during our dating years.  I put them all together by date, and got a binder to put them in.  When I asked Daddy what I should call it, he said "the Hurt Locker" :) 


lots of tears, happiness, hurt and joy mixed in these pages!


The Sunday before Valentines' day, mr Finn hadn't been to get a hair cut, and it was getting rather long in front....

with 3 girls in the house, we knew how to solve that problem ;)


Liv and Finn gave out shaving cream fluffy slime for valentine's day this year!  Quite a fun project!




Winnie also needs a hair cut!  good grief!


Thursday night, we had our friends' baby Elisha over for a couple hours.  It went too quick, and it was lots of fun!  Finn really enjoyed having a baby around.  He helped feed him, and kept calling him "cute" :)




Last Monday, Avery took her permit test.....and PASSED!  Now, she has up to 5 years to learn how to drive, and once she has it down, she can test (after August). 



A Valentines Day she will never forget!

random this and that....

Finn and Avery went on a "date" the other night downstairs to watch a movie :)
He only lasted about 30 minutes, but a fun memory for them! 
I'm still over here working on next years Christmas tree decor :)


We've been making slime for the kiddos to play with, and Liv had her friend Lily over, and we made some up and had some fun! :)


Last night, Daddy, Avery and I went to high school orientation.  Let that sink in.... ;(

Daddy goes on a trip....

We sent Daddy away for a rest and relaxation trip this last week.  I seemed to take quite a bit of pics to send to him so he didn't miss us TOO much :)

We made slime!  Finn and Liv loved it so so so much!  Finn would spend a loooooong time just playing with it all by himself! :)


The weather was pleasant out on Wednesday, so we went out in the front and played in the snow a bit :)





Little did they know that Nana was coming again!!!  Such a fun surprise! :) 





Liv enjoyed quite a bit of art projects while daddy was gone!



A fun night at Walmart and then followed by Culvers!


I let Olivia stay home on Friday to watch the inauguration.  She also painted our church friend this picture to say thank you for making her some amazing mac and cheese!


She LOVED it :)


Saturday, Liv went to a dance camp.  That night, she got to perform at the High School basketball game.  It was our first time!



Liv wanted to make daddy a special sign for his office while he was gone!  She was so proud of it! :)

Our super awesome friends David and Brigitte welcomed their sweet firstborn son, Elisha, last week!  We were so fortunate enough to be able and go see him when we was barely 1 day old!  Such a sweet baby!!!


For Christmas, we gave Avery a brush lettering kit, and she has caught on to it so well!  Me, not so much, but check out what she can do!!! :)


Finn has been enjoying working on letters, and here is his first F :)


Yes, he loves getting his picture taken!


Today, he was working on tracing the letters F I N N  :) 



I worked on a couple Christmas tree ornaments for next year!  Always something going on here!


Going to try to get snowflakes on these lids, but we'll see how I do! :)

Nana and Bapa visit!

After all the excitement of Nana and Bapa's surprise, the kiddos were pretty hyper!

Daddy was getting the bulletin ready for Sunday, and we were having fun with what different phrases we could put on the front....this is the only one that I can actually show :)


so much laughter!!!!!


Nana made us a big meal, and all you can hear Finn saying is "ep, ep" which means he wants to help!  Cooking with kids in the kitchen, especially toddlers, is so so much fun (not).


After supper on the 30th, Liv said she had planned a concert for us.  She was working on it all day, and made nice programs for all of us! 


After his shyness went away, Finn went up and joined her as well!



"the stars in the sky..."




I told Avery I was going to snap a picture of her hair....it's so rats-nest-y in the back sometimes! yowza!


After the concert, we were back upstairs for Nana and Bapa to help with the gingerbread village!  I think next year we will use a glue gun, but it sure did turn out cute!




New Years Eve we went bowling!  It was Finn's first time, so watching him was a good time!












The restaurant at the bowling alley is a hidden gem in our town!  The kiddos chowed down on some yummy food after all their hard work bowling!


cheers to 2016!


back home, we painted some snowflake ornaments for our tree for next year!



And Liv did her makeup and Nanas too!  and Nanas hair!


Here us three are as the clock turned to 2017!!!


Looking forward to a wonderful NEW YEAR!
