Best friends

These 2 are so cute together!  While Emily is away at school during the day, they love to hug and wrestle and play together.  They also fight, but overall they love being together.

After preschool, I've heard Jake say, "I miss you Abby!!"  and give her a big hug.  Abby is always willing to share her left over preschool snack or special treat with Jake.  She is so thoughtful!

My mom is in town and I am so glad!  I love when she comes.  Jake's latest obsession is tractors and he's made my mom read this "Dirtiest Machines" book from the library at least a hundred times.  Better her than me, though. Bwahaha!

I thought this was a funny picture of Jake vegging out to PBS kids one lazy morning.

Abby's 4th Birthday

My cute little Abby turned 4 on February 4th.  Pete had a crazy busy weekend before her birthday, a busy week, and then is on chief call this weekend.  We're grateful to a good friend who was willing to cover the chief pager for a couple of hours for Pete yesterday while we finally celebrated Abby's special day. :)
On her actual birthday, my mom and I took the kids to a playground at the mall and then to Costco for hot dogs and ice cream. :)

This is her wearing her birthday crown at preschool.

Yesterday she chose to go to McDonald's to celebrate.  The kids had a lot of fun on the playground.

Then we came home and opened presents and had cake. 
Thanks grandma and grandpa for the fun packages!!

Seriously love this girl!  She is so spunky and full of life.  She loves her brother and sister and is really good at sharing.  So glad she's mine. :)
