Belle Camp!!

For this year's princess camp Dorothy choose... Belle and Sleeping Beauty. Last week was Belle camp (Sleeping Beauty is in July) They painted nails and did make-up, watched the movie, learned a dance, and did all sorts of princess crafts. She loved it and cannot wait until Sleeping Beauty camp!!

I can't believe it's been five months!!!

To my sweet Violet, I can hardly believe you are five months old!! Although I feel like you have been a part of this family forever! I love you beyond reason and thank you everyday for letting me be your Mom. You have brought so much joy and happiness to our family and most days I could just hold and kiss you all day long!

Here are some pictures of Violet in her favorite places!!

Our last concert!

We had our last concert (I sing in the Colorado Mormon Chorale, in case you were wondering)... I am sad that there will be no Wednesday night rehearsal, no more wearing of the 'beautiful' blue dresses, and sad that I won't be able chat with my choir friends and get into trouble for being noisy... at least until fall!:)

There I am singing!

Violet and I in my (no you cannot borrow!) choir dress!

Look Mom, no training wheels!!!

Today at the bike store, Dorothy kept asking for a 'big girl bike' and James told her that if she could learn to ride her bike without training wheels she could get one. As soon as we got home she got her bike out and made Daddy take off the training wheels. In less than an hour Dorothy was riding her bike up and down the street!!! The little stink still wants Mommy and Daddy to run with her the whole time. But we are so proud of her and can hardly believe it!! She's such a good little biker!!!

Violet watching from the sidelines!

Preston got a little upset Dorothy was getting so much attention
he got his bike out and started riding!

Sleeping Buddies!!!

The other day, the girls fell asleep during our 'family movie party' and they were so cute I had to get a picture! I then had to get a picture of Preston who sleeps with Buzzlight Year and Woody every night! I then made my sleeping buddy James pose for a photo!!!

That just melts my heart!!

Preston HAS to have these two just like that to sleep!!

I was trying to hide my no make-up face and show off my crazy hair!!
