January

In January our sweet Lilly Mae became a SUNBEAM! It's was so cute to see her pick out her favorite dress to wear to church on her special day. She was so excited to carry her new church bag I made for her and gave her for Christmas. She picked out each crayon she wanted to carry and was thrilled to have her own pocket size Book of Mormon. She really did make the absolute cutest sunbeam!


Macey joined her sisters for the first time in the bath. 
As you can see - she was totally freaked out by the experience. 

For Jayda's 7th birthday she asked if she could take 2 friends to Medieval Times. She wanted to dress up like princesses and watch the knights battle while eating overpriced food with her hands. 
How could we say no!?


Her invitation was sent out and her cute friend Lily RSVP's in the most adorable way! She actually dropped off a cute bird puppet (aka the homing pigeon as mentioned in the invite) that had her reply in it's mouth. Jayda giggled for about an hour and slept with that puppet for the next 30 days. It was just so cute! 

 Lilly Mae was worried she would be scared during the show so she opted to stay home...but she wanted to get dressed and see her sister off with a proper princess wave. 

















On her actual birthday we had a simple heart shaped cake and sang to her. It was equally as nice to celebrate in our pj's with just our lil family. 





Happy 7th Birthday, Jayda Grace! We love you! 

February

We had a few snow days in February which mean the kids were bored. Apparently they decided to sneak my camera and take photos around the house to entertain themselves. They took some good ones...







Daddy spent some quality time reading to his three beauties...



and wee Macey Jayne just got cuter and cuter...





We enjoyed a sweet Valentines Day celebration at home with a quiet dinner and little gifts of love. 


Jayda got a new chapter book. 


Lilly got a new "if you give..." book


We had heart shaped cucumbers with pink ranch dressing 


a homemade heart shaped pepperoni pizza 


and some cookie bowls filled with their favorite ice cream and toppings. 


Daddy was at work late so he couldn't join us. We were sad because we missed him so much, but we still had fun together and counted our blessings for all the love we share! 



and have I mentioned how cute this baby is?!?!...





Jayda & Lilly were thrilled to dance in their first feis! It was an in-school feis so they competed against other dances from their school. It was so cute to see them up there dancing their little hearts out!

Lilly is number 190






 Jayda is number 189






Lilly and Jayda both did great! Lilly got a participation trophy and some great praise from the judges. They were shocked at how little she is for someone that had such great form. Jayda also did really well and placed first in her category. We were proud of both of them for getting on stage in front of about a thousand people and some judges staring right at them! Good job, babies!
