( I love how it looks like he's struggling to get loose)
I'm not sure what they did to deserve this but I'm sure they thought it was going to be just another play day with Chloe...SURPRISE! You never know what you're going to get when Chloe plays with you.

Ryan always tells me that Channing and Chloe are my little dress-up dolls and I have to admit they kind of are. I love little girls.

My brother got married in May to this beauty, Kylee. They are so cute together and I'm excited to have another great sister-in-law in the family.
Staub Family Reunion at Artesian Lakes
We had a fun family reunion at Artesian Lakes with the Staub family. Cool cabins, fun swimming, lots of alligators, and quality family time. It was fun having all the cousins there together.
What a cute group of girls with an awesome teacher. Thanks Angie!
and more swim team!!!
(I thought it would never end)
The girls enjoyed it and did so well. I was hoping that Chloe would be able to swim the length of the pool by the end of the season but she did it by the 2nd swim meet. We were so proud of her. Channing had another great year and won her first, 1st place ribbon. What a great season. Good job girls.

Vacation Bible School
The girls attended a week of vacation bible school at Fisher's of Men, which is where Channing went to preschool last year. The theme was "God the Builder" and now I can't sing the Bob the Builder song without singing it God the Builder, not that I sing the song often in the first place. The girls learned some fun religious songs and sang them for weeks. Here's Chloe performing one of her favorites.
4th of July.
We spent the 4th of July weekend at the lake house. Vern and Sheriee hosted the 2nd annual Freedom Swim and had about 80 people participate. It seems like a good start to a great tradition.
Chloe hates loud noises and sat like this most of the evening.
A visit from the Wade cousins.
My sister came for a visit and brought her 3 kids. We had a blast.
We face painted at the Children's Museum.
And probably best of all, we sipped snow cones by the pool...thanks Sheriee!
What a great summer! Stay tuned for what happened after our summer ended.

I can't go to bed because:
1. I need a drink
2. I need to go to the bathroom
3. I'm scared
4. Chloe's touching my bed
5. Chloe said her bed is comfier than mine
6. Channing won't let me sleep in her bed
7. I'm hungry
Chloe came up with a new one last night:
What are some of the excuses your kids come up with?

They gathered sleeping bags and bakpacks filled with pajamas, special sleeping blankets, and a flashlight.
The girls participated in not one,
but three Easter egg hunts.
It was a beautiful Easter weekend in which we were able to reflect on the sacrifice out Savior made for us and the blessings we receive from that event.

They decorated cookies for Santa and ate a few too.
We sprinkled food on the driveway for the Reindeer.
The Christmas Story was told, songs were sung, and all the kids were off to bed like good little boys and girls. Yahoo!!
Christmas Morning: The kids all got a lot of fun toys. Each year we give the girls new pajamas on Christmas Eve and this year I decided to make them. The girls got new dolls from Santa and the dolls were wearing matching pajamas. Santa must have seen me making them and had his elves make matching ones for their new dolls. The girls thought that was so cool! Way to go elves.
Then....Logan and Ben got to stay at our house for a week while Wes and Kate went on a cruise with Kate's family. The boys went back and forth between our house and Grandma and Papa's house. We played hard and had a lot of fun.
What a great Christmas vacation!
