We have been blessed with loads of houseguests lately so I have many, many pictures to post soon. With two grandparent birthdays in spring (Grandpa Gregg and then Grandma Deni) this is always a busy time of organzing, hosting, cake-baking, and of course, celebrating.
In the midst of all of it, our girls are growing like the weeds in our front yard. Carrigan is experiencing a word explosion. Her first real sentence was "All done cotton candy!" after devouring a cotton-candy flavored popsicle. (Side note--who ever dreamed up that flavor?). Brinnly is spending a lot of time reading aloud to herself. She occasionally gets a word or two correct.And our Amalia....she's inching closer to five all the time. During the regular Easter dress shopping excursion with Grandma Sandy, she tried on no less than eight dresses. The grown-ups all loved her in a bright orange and pink polka-dotted beauty. But alas, no. It was dubbed too "casual", not "spinny" or "princessy" enough. A pale, more subdued number won her over. Thankfully we talked her out of anything with the pricey, poorly-designed "Cinderalla" label on it. She'll be an Easter princess nonetheless.
