Books...

I have made it my goal to read 6 books this year! Ask me if I am keeping up with this??? Well it is March and I have read ONE! I have a book in mind that shouldn't take too long to read. (Jon and Kate's book). So that should get me back on target to read one book every two months. As I am thinking about books, I just have to give a review of one I read a few years ago. I am not a reader, but once all my friends were talking about this book, I knew I had to get it. I understood within 10 minutes of reading it why it created such a buzz. "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers has got to be one of the best books I have ever read! This book really opened my eyes to a whole new side of grace. God's grace is always one step ahead, and this book lays that out so clearly. This book is based on the book of Hosea from the Bible. If you are a reader, or even if you aren't, I encourage you to pick this one up and give it a few chapters. You will be hooked! I promise!

Proudest and Scariest Mommy moments of the past few days!

I will start with the positive! Chloe, tonight, as we were putting her to bed busted out with "I am not ashamed of the Gospel, Rom 1:16" What a proud moment it was for me to hear her quote what she was taught today at church.


Now on the flipside, Chloe also caused me the most paniced moment of my mothering this weekend as well! We were are the mall, and were getting ready to leave. Steve went with Maci to the stroller to get her strapped in. I stayed at the table with Emma to finish paying. Chloe followed Steve. Upon gathering everything and going to where Steve was, I quickly noticed that Chloe was no where to be seen. I asked him, he said he thought she was with me. I went into panic mode and scanned visually with my eyes to see if I couldl find her. Steve employeed serveral from the restruant to help look for her. Within five minutes, she was found...outside. Very scary! Up until this point, we had never talked with her about things like this. She now knows that she must hold hands with us in public. We are so thankful for the nice man who brought her back in side the restruant.


Here is a new picture of Maci...so cute!

Here are her latest stats as well:

16 lbs 5 oz (45% for weight)

24 3/4 inches (10% for length, she didn't grow)

She is wearing 3-6 mth clothing mostly, with some 6 month outfits mixed in. She loves fruit, and now eats three times a day. She sleeps 12 hours at night and loves to laugh at balloons. She is such a sweet baby.

Here is a video of her laughs!

Snack Money


Since I can not fill Chloe up and she is asking for snacks non-stop, I had to do something to get it under control. I have implemented a "snack money" system. She earns snack money by doing what she is asked. (like picking up toys, sharing, etc) She can earn up to three snack $'s a day. I made a few credit card sized card stock dollars for her. She can cash them in when she wants. Only three a day though! She is in control of when she cashes them in, and is learning how to earn at the same time! Some snacks cost 2 $, like the ones that aren't so healthy, such as 100 cal packs, but fruit only cost 1. I love it! So far it's working great!

Magic House

We took the girls to the Magic House while our house was being shown during Open House. Chloe has been a few times, but I think she really enjoyed it this time! She really explored the different areas. Emma's got to experience it for the first time. Emma and Chloe both really had wild hair. They both loved doing this!


Icecream anyone?


Emma enjoyed shopping in the little play store. She got milk, bread, and of course some chocolate.

Water play...they don't get to stand and play in the water very often, so they did NOT want to leave this room.







Chloe really enjoyed building in the lego room.

Emma enjoyed knocking everything over as Chloe built it.


Meet Queen Chloe

And Queen Emma


Here is Chloe climbing the bean stock!

Perhaps Emma will be our little pianist! She did not want to share the keyboard with Chloe.

Super hero Brunch

Here is Chloe with her girlfriend, Olivia. So cute!
Here is another pict from the brunch. Lot's of princess' at this brunch...but not my Chloe!

Super Chloe, flying!




This picture is my favorite! I might just have to frame this one up!



Flying again!


Chloe enjoyed the Super Hero Brunch that was held at our church last weekend! She was so excited to get dressed up in her Super girl costume! Or as she calls it, Super Chloe!
