Gardner Village

My friend, Becca, the girls, and I took a little trip up to Gardner Village earlier this week. What a cute place! I've been there a couple times, and every now and then get the urge to go again. We missed the "elves" by a day, but enjoyed beautiful weather and ducks instead! Besides the company, of course. Becca is such an awesome person (those of you who know her will easily agree) - the girls and I just love her. It was fun listening to Lauren call her..."Bec-ca, Bec-ca, Bec-ca!" Then she'd just smile. I love that Bec just takes the girls without worry or feeling like she's got to ask my permission for things. It's a great feeling to trust someone with your kids! She's just great! Hope you had fun, Bec! Until the chocolate fest... :)

Feeding the ducks some Cheetos. You could tell these guys were used to getting "food" attention. One of 'em ate a cheeto right out of Becca's hand!

Loved these pics of Addy and her little friend after jumping on the trampoline.


(First of's been WAY longer than I wanted since I posted last. I'm figuring if the title of our blog holds true, I should be posting pretty often, right? I'll do better.)

So, to the post - Lauren is becoming so cute lately. She's saying lots of words now and following in her big sister's footsteps. Addy loved (loves?) princesses and has way too many of them, so naturally, Lauren loves to play with them too. She loves saying, "Jazzy (aka Jasmine), Ariel, Belle (that would be for Belle, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty thus far)" and is attempting some others ("Coco" for Pocahontas, "Mommy" for Mulan...unless it's a dark-haired thing...). She has been able to walk really well in the dress up princess shoes for many months, but she's branching out now. She walked out of the bedroom with these accessories on today needing help getting the "gasses" on.
