April fun

I love my silly, happy girls!

 Abbi was invited to a special birthday tea party and was so excited!

Karlie made some sweet pictures and notes in her class for Grandparents' Day:

"I love Nina and Papa.  I like playing with Nina.  I like going for walks in the woods with Papa."

"I love Grandma and papa.  I like coocking with Grandma.  I like going to the librayry with papa."

The girls were excited to hold baby chicks at a tractor supply store:

We all got spring haircuts!  Unfortunately I didn't get many pictures, but they were all excited about it!  

A fun birthday party for Lilianna!

Snuggles from my big girls :)

Susanna randomly found Nina's glasses and put them on:

 Susanna found my stash of Hershey kisses that Karis gave me:

Karlie wanted a picture with Frosty:

And Pup-pup:

Susanna loves Daddy snuggles more than anything:

Easter 2015

We started out Easter weekend by staying at Nina and Papa's house.  The girls had fun dying Easter eggs with Nina:

While Susanna had fun decorating her eggs with foam stickers:

We went to my parents' house for Easter and went to church with them on Sunday morning.  Instead of buying the girls matching dresses for Easter this year, we took them to the consignment store and Grandma let the m each pick out whichever dress they wanted.  It was so fun to see their personalities and interests shown in the dresses they chose.  Karis chose the most grown-up dress she could find, while Karlie chose the most princessey dress she could find.  And Abbi had to pick a blue fancy dress like Elsa :)

The girls were so excited that Grandma rode in the back of the van with them!

The girls enjoyed dying eggs with Grandma also!

Nina and Papa came to Grandma and Papa's house to celebrate Easter with us!

Making Grandma's famous Angel biscuits:

 Susanna probably more than anyone at our Easter feast :)

First soccer game!

We joined the homeschool soccer league at the end of March and the girls have really enjoyed playing!  Our team is mostly made up of girls who have never played before.  We only have one boy on the team!  We have very little chance of winning any games but we sure are learning a lot.  Our first game started with a tremendous thunderstorm but ended up with pleasant weather.  The girls thought it was pretty fun to be able to play in the pouring down rain!
