First trip to dentist


Today was Jillian’s first trip to the dentist. She was a little apprehensive at first but once we arrived she was fine. The dentist was fabulous with Jillian! I stayed in the room for a little while and then left during the cleaning. I could hear her laugh every once in a while.

Photo Shoot

Here are some pictures from a recent photo shoot. When Olivia was born I had paid for three four sessions through a photography company. Here is our #3 sitting.

Valentine’s Day

Jillian had a lot of fun with Valentine’s day this year! I found a bunch of Valentines ideas through Pinterest and shared them with Jillian. She picked out a butterfly Valentine. It took us a while to finish them. I made her write out her name on the back of all 16 Valentines for her class. After four she told me she was “too tired,” so we completed four everyday.

Here is her Valentine for her classmates:

These are her Valentines she made at school for Adrian and me:


Here is the Valentine that Adrian had the girls make for me:

Mustache Monday

We had a gag gift of mustaches laying around the house and the girls decided it was time to try them on. 🙂  There was a lot of giggling going on!

Olivia’s 2nd Birthday

Wow, time flies by much faster when you have kids. They grow up so fast!! We celebrated Olivia’s birthday by taking her and Jillian to Pretend City. It is a fabulous place, I recommend you go if you are in the Orange County area and have young children!  The girls had a great time playing in the different areas. I think Olivia’s favorite places were the grocery store and the dentist’s office.

That evening we had a small gathering of family to have dinner and cupcakes. Olivia (and Jillian) enjoyed opening presents. I think her favorite gift over all was from Uncle Scott and Aunt Lauren. They got her a little veterinarian kit. She goes everywhere with the little dog!

Since Olivia adores monkeys, I made monkey cupcakes. I used melted chocolate to make the little faces and then placed them on top of the cupcakes. I got the idea on Pinterest (If you are not on there… and you are a woman… get on it!) I’ve gotten so many great ideas from Pinterest!!

Family Photos

Here are our family photos taken back in November. I know, I’m slacking off in my blogging. It’s been a busy few months but I am determined to get back into the swing of things.
