Happy 7th Birthday Natalie!

 Happy Birthday my little Natalie! 
The morning started out with breakfast in bed, and opening presents first thing!
 We then had a big party with all her friends, and their dolls. 
 Thanks to Char and my mom for helping out.

 Present time

 I am grateful for this sweet girl.  She is such a good example to her little sister.  Olivia will frequently tell me she can't wait to be big like Nat so she can be just like her.  Natalie is very caring and concerned for Cash and Olivia.  I frequently notice her giving them pieces of her candy, or a toy she is playing.  The other day I was sick before she left for school.  She covered me up with a blanket and told me how much she loved me at least 3 times before she left.  Love you miss Natalie!

Valentine's Day

 Cash enjoying a smoothy on Valentines day.  He LOVES smoothy time.  As soon as I pull the blender out, he starts his loud scream!  It is almost enough to make me not want to make smoothies anymore, almost. 

I made heart pancakes for breakfast for my loves!

Mckay liked his hearts

One of our family traditions is to spend the first Family Night in February making valentines for each other and then hanging them all over the house.  This cute one is from Nate to Nat!

For dinner we had a candle light dinner with the whole family.  Then sent the kids to bed!!

The Best Visiting Teaching Partner

 Olivia happens to be the best VT Partner!  She carries the lesson for me and even walks through snow up to her knees to get it done.  All with a smile!
Oh yea, she also sometimes asks her daddy to paint her face like a kitty, just because!

My Two Babies

 My days at home are pretty quiet with just two kids home while the others are at school.  We spend many hours at home because Cash still takes two naps and Olivia takes a nap and it doesn't always coincide with Cash's nap.  Cash loves to ride his rocking horse and watch is neigh!  
He enjoyed his first dinner of Mac and Cheese.

 Liv got sick and it lasted 5 long days.   She was so worn out!  Cash got an ear infection at the same time and Liv fell asleep while we were at the Dr.  As soon as we stood up to leave, she threw up all over.  I am sure the Dr. was happy we came in that day!

Valentine's Day Bunting

Just had to post a picture of the bunting I Made! Charlotte and I ran to Hobby Lobby one day, picked out some fabric, cut it out, and sewed it all together.  Love how it turned out just in time for valentine's Day!

Olivia is growing up

 This little two year old is growing up!  I love my days with her while the older kids are in school.  She is my best little friend.  Most days when the kids leave, we play Mommy and Honey.  She is the mommy and I am the Honey.  I love that she calls it that.  I realized it is because I call her Honey all the time!

Love my Girls

 I am trying to be better at being in the picture instead of just taking them all.  Sometimes that means still taking them myself.  Gotta love self portraits!

 Natalie is always drawing me pictures.  She is quite the little artist!
