A Girl's Best Friend

Clare just loves to play with Gage. You can often hear her in the other room bossing him around and making him stay. He is so good with Clare even when she insists on him playing with her toys.

Baking Pies

My Mom and I baked pies this year for Thanksgiving. It was my first time making pies and they didn't turn out too bad. The girls both took naps the entire time and at the end Clare was able to play with the dough.

Tea Party

Clare is growing up way too fast. The other day I came into the living room and she had set-up a tea party for herself and animals.

Clare so proud of herself.

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Mitch and I went out on our first date since Leah was born on the night of my birthday. He also got me a new camera and some roses. It was so nice to have some one on one time. I wasn't too fond of him having them sing to me in the restaurant, but Clare loves the crown Mommy got. Thanks for everything.

The Happy Couple
Don't I looked thrilled?

"How do I look Dad?"

Clare enjoys sitting up to the coffee table.

Seattle Aquariam

My mom and I took the girls to Seattle for a couple of days to visit my sister and her family. Our big adventure included going to the Seattle Aquariam. Clare absolutely loved going and she couldn't stop shrieking, she was so excited. She had a grin on her face the entire time. We were sad that Daddy couldn't join us but we look forward to going again sometime with him.
