i just found this. it's kind of old...

Dear Emma,

I love you so much. In 3 weeks I want you to come to my house. And I want to write a letter to Grandma too. Thank you so much for the Raggedy Anne  and Andy dolls. Thank you for the letters with us and the cookies. In 3 weeks I want you to come to my house, Emma. and we're making a pirate bed ship. And then you can come with me into the backyard with me and Kaylee and Riley and we can play in the backyard! Or you can draw with chalk with me in the front yard. And maybe you can sleep with me into my bedroom. You can play with me into my bedroom, you can read with me into my bedroom, or you can draw with me in my bedroom. Before we make a pirate ship, we need to make a map. And guess what, Emma? I just turned 5! I love you, Emma.
Love, Lily

ps. I can eat yummy food like graham crackers. And I can drink yummy drinks like chocolate milk. Or I can eat strawberries or cheese and tortillas.

tiny little...

Rachel Elizabeth Howe. Thanks for finally giving a correct answer, Larkie!

Here is my cute cousin when she was a cute tiny baby.

and here she is just a few years later.
Rachel is getting MARRIED next month. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!

i'm gonna show off now... just a little.

I don't know why it's been soooo hard for me to blog this month! Maybe it's partly because I have spent a lot of time crafting for the new babies in our family!! Here is my niece Makenzie trying on her blessing day attire. I made this dress last year in my sewing class. I also made her bracelet and her headband. I have been making cute little bracelets and headband like crazy recently. They are so adorable and I CAN'T wait to try them on our tiny baby in 1 week and 5 days! (btw, since Lily and Riley both came on their due dates and Kaylee came just the day after, I am pretty much counting on this one being right on schedule too!)

Makenzie Lee. cuuuuutest little niecy.

another headband. there are like a million. isn't she the cutest little thing???

and here is our cute baby. I took this pic at 37 weeks and 6 days (so like 3 days ago). I still feel really super good. Sometimes I wonder if it's really possible that she'll be here in less than 2 weeks! I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait!

thoughts for the evening

finally having a dishwasher is everything I dreamed it would be and more!

it is soooo weird to hear Lily READ!

my due date is 2.5 weeks away!!!! eeeeeek!

if you can guess who this cutest child is, I will send you a surprise in the mail.
people who are NOT allowed to guess: a) the person in this picture. and b) my sister, Geri.

We moved over the weekend and it's not been easy to blog! How 'bout some sleepytime photos of the girls. They're just so adorable and well behaved and easy to take pictures of when they're unconscious.

Riley's ponytail is quite possible my favorite thing ever.
