Just some pictures I wanted to post. :)

These two love to play together.
This is the way it usually starts out.  Hugging, wrestling, and lots of laughing.

You'll see that she has Jake in more of a choke-hold now...

He's not so sure he's having fun anymore, but she is loving it.  Now is when he will start roughing her up/  Sometimes it ends well...sometimes it doesn't.

Here are some pics of Emily on picture day.  Look how tall she is getting!  I think she's the tallest second grader I know.  The skirt I originally set out for her had become too short, so we moved on to this one.  Then this one was a little short so I got out some capri leggins for her to put under it, and those were too short and too tight!  It was time to leave so I had her put some shorts underneath and called it good. Man, guess I need to do some more shopping for her.  Sigh.

Lilly loves to chew on her fingers.  She likes to suck them, too.  Has since birth.  Sometimes she tries to sneak a thumb in her mouth with the bottle. :)

We didn't have school today, so we took at trip to the zoo this afternoon.  Emily brought a friend, so that was fun.

I could just stare at her all day!  And kiss her little cheeks!

Today was Pete's last day on his rotation at the V.A., which is right across the street from the zoo.  It was fun to have him meet up with us. :)

Pete is headed to Vancouver this weekend for an Otolaryngology conference.  All his buddies are going, so it should be fun for him.  I'm trying to come up with something fun for me and the kids to do.  Looking forward to having pancakes and Little Caesars for dinner. :)

I can't believe how big your kids are getting! Especially Jake! He is a big boy now! I know those wrestling scenarios well at my house...somehow the choke hold always comes out here too. But it's James giving it to Dane. Well, Abby and James are about the same age, so maybe it's a 4 year old thing!

Emily is beautiful. Wow! That hair, those long legs, the face. She does look really tall! Lucky girl :)

Lily looks like an absolute sweetheart. I love that she tries to put a thumb in while eating a bottle. That takes dedication.
