Christmas Memories

We spent over a week up at the farm for Christmas.  Even though it was insanely cold, we kept nice and warm with our family.
Owen was totally not a fan of Santa on Christmas Eve

Caroline, on the other hand, was

Please tell me that I'm not the only one who waits until the last moment to get an "grandchild" photo.  
Yes, Owen's in his 'naked shirt'

Patiently waiting to open gifts

Look at that excitement!

Number 6

It's wild to think that a couple of weeks ago we celebrated Caroline's 6th birthday.  I remember growing up, adults would always say how fast time flies, and of course I thought they were crazy.  Little did I know that they were right.  It seems like yesterday we were going through the colic-y days and nights with sweet little Caroline.  Now she can tie her shoes and read and write.

We celebrated her birthday over a couple of weekends.  First, the week before with some friends.  And then on the big day with our family.  Cake of course was served both times!

I'm Back!

Okay, so I haven't blogged since the first day of school, and the school year is nearly half over.  But I'm back and with a better camera.  
Owen has become a wild man.  He runs all over the place!

Caroline has lost both of her front teeth, but it's not slowing her down!

New Beginnings

Today marks a new beginning for our family. Kindergarten. 
We have an elementary school child. Seriously, how did this happen?! It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, totally clueless about how she (and her future brother) were about to completely change our life. 
I am so excited to pick her up and hear all about her day. I overheard one conversation before we left.
Caroline: hi, I'm Caroline. Would you like to be my friend?
Girl: yeah

Science Experiment

This afternoon I was looking for a quiet project for Caroline to work on. On Pinterest I saw the baking soda/colored vinegar activity and thought we'd have fun.  
I put baking soda in a clear pan and colored some vinegar with food coloring. Then Caroline spooned the vinegar in the pan to create colored bubbles. Very fun and very easy!
