My TWO Big Kids!

I can hardly believe it, but I now have two kids in undies! Since Lily started carrying her little potty around the house and asking to poo on it, we decided it was time. Personally, I wanted to wait until after our move since the possibility of regression goes up with big life changes. But I have to say, I was so impressed with Lily's totally awesome potty training skills! She was obviously ready on the first day when, although she was very hydrated, she was holding it for 45 min to an hour. I've heard that girls are easier to potty train than boys, and I think just in my experience with Jack and Lily, I'm going to have to agree with that 100%!!!

So proud of this cute girl!

Random Video Clips

I take pictures and video clips all the time  (and occasionally I forget what I have because I have way too much)! So when my iPhone alerted me that I have zero memory left....I went through my video clips to see what I could delete. I came across some random little clips of my quirky kiddos that I had forgotten about, and thought might be worth sharing!


Lily is obsessed with shoes!!! (Just ask her cousins Anna and Emma :)
She has apparently mastered the art of high heel walking:

This is how Jack exits the pool after every swimming lesson.

Jack apparently came out of the womb also knowing how to throw a frisbee . . .

As I was working in the yard, I turned around to find Jack teaching Lily how to ride his bike :)

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle!
Jack and Lily's favorite song from Yo Gabba Gabba.

You have to turn up the volume for this one. . . 
This is Lily, tired, in the back seat of the car singing while were in AZ.

Schools Out For SUMMER!!!

        Jack had his last day of preschool at the end of May. Two days later we were off to Arizona to play and spend some time with the cousins! Anna, the oldest of the little cousins, got baptized and it was a beautiful day that we will all remember. I got a video of John singing with his brother and brother in law but the video was too large to upload to a blog post. But they did a great job!


This is the card Jack made for his teacher.
It's a picture of Mrs. Susan on a skateboard. He wanted to write "I love you," so I told him how to spell it and busted out this lil beauty!


Last day of school at the park with their book of memories from the school year.


Mrs. Susan with Jack and Ethan (Jack's lil homeboy).


Jack LOVED swimming in Anna and Emma's pool!



 By the end of the trip while we were staying at a hotel, we had Lily even jumping into the pool!


Emma's giganto bear that Lily snuggled whenever she got a chance.


Cute cousins going to church!
