These girls love unwrapping their little surprises! And the ones covered in chocolate are the best! They earned these little Oleys and couldn't wait to open them up!

Animal Update

I can't believe how fast these little critters grow!!! The geckos have more than doubled in size in just the past month. It's so fun to watch them grow!

Cotton Candy

I don't get the cotton candy maker out very often, but when I do the kids go nuts!

Bedroom Switcheroo

I've noticed Brooklyn and Brynlee struggling to get along lately, but while on our Disneyland trip we realized how bad it was. The only thing we could think of to help them was to separate them. I wasn't quite ready to put Brielle and Britney together bc of different sleeping schedules, but we didn't really have a choice. So now Brayden and Brooklyn have the 2 bedrooms in the basement, Brynlee has the small room upstairs, and the 2 little ones are sharing the big bedroom upstairs. We'll see how it goes!

Celebrating Mckinsley's Birthday

We headed over to Ericson's Sunday evening to celebrate Mckinsley's 7th birthday! Kay asked all the kids to bring their snow stuff so they could play outside. The kids loved it! By the end of the night they were exhausted and ready to relax with a show until we were ready to go.

Barbie Salon

I love when the girls come up with creative and fun activities on their own. The little ones set up all their barbies and started doing their hair. They spent over an hour spraying and brushing each barbies hair.

Not much I need to say about this!

Animal Update

The animals continue to grow and are SO loved by all the kids! Unfortunately we had to give Brielle's chinchilla back bc she wasn't getting along with the other two, but Brielle has been ok with it (not great, but ok). It's fun for the kids to hold them and let them run around the craft room. And we all love watching them take dust baths!
