Emme and Zander

We watched Zander for a few hours this past Saturday and Em absolutely loved having him here. She was so excited when he got here.

Em made sure as soon as Aunt Kacey left that she got to sit in her chair with Z:

Here is Emme giving hugs - she was doing that non-stop. Zander obviously thought it was a riot:

Here we are reading stories on Em's "couch" before her nappy time. They were so cute together...until Zander starting pinching Emily! LOL! She looked at him like he was crazy.

Here the two of them are hanging out:

What to say?

I realize I have not posted in a few weeks, so I thought I should write about something -- not so sure what though! LOL!
Guess I'll just post some pics that we've taken so far this month....

Here is Emme giving Daddy kisses before he heads off to work. She loves her daddy!!! Kory just started a new truck run yesterday. He now goes from Madison to Chicago, back to Madison, then up to LaCrosse and back home to Madison. It's a 13 hour run! Pretty intense, so we'll see how it goes. He is enjoying it so far.

My parents house in IL sold and is closing in about a week - in a way it's exciting because I know it's the start of a new chapter in our family, but it's also a little sad. We have grown up in that house. I've lived there since I was 10 years old. We are very excited that we have the house up in Hayward, WI and it will be so nice for my parents to only have 1 house to take care of - for the first time in what....8 years, I think?

Kory's step-sister Liz got us hooked on a game called Rummikub, so we passed on the fun game to Casey & Mike. We played two weekends in a row and had a blast. Here we are all putting Emily to bed - note all the animals in her bed (and under her bed!)! LOL! This was after Emme made Uncle Mike read her some stories. She loves her Uncle Mike and Auntie CeCe.

Casey & Mike went to TX this week and we were on doggy duty. Winnie did great over here. It was a little chaotic, but we made it work. Winnie and Otis really enjoy each other. Now the cat is a whole different story!!!

We got Em this toy at Target. It lights up and spins, so it makes kind of a vibrating noise so she loves to put it up to her ear and listen to it. So cute!

I know this isn't the greatest pic, but I just thought Emily looked sooooo grown up! This is our big 2 year old. She is growing right before our eyes. Hard to believe it! She is still wearing 18 month pants, but looking at this picture, I think they are getting a little short...uh oh...not sure what to put her in next!!! She is working on her 2 year molars also - so if anyone has any suggestions for a 2 year old who is teething I would love to hear it! I hate giving her tylenol if I don't have to!

This picture is sooooo Em! I was in the bedroom and came out she was dancing in her diaper with all the necklaces and her dolly. It was a riot!! She is such a little rockstar. We still have her weekly music classes and she loves them. It's so cute now to hear her singing. I just know she's going to make us rich someday :)

Well that's all I can come up with! Things have finally calmed down after the holidays. Will post again soon!
