Happy last day of May to you!
It has been a while since I’ve shared some random day to day photos from our life lately, so here you go- some riveting Spena footage.
During my morning sickness stint, Jim took over the grocery shopping for me. He saw where our money was going and took it upon himself to challenge himself to find even more ways we could trim down the budget. So, we joined Sams Club! He built some big shelves down in our basement so we can store larger bulk items, and hopefully it helps us save more in the long run.
Also, that .99 cent froyo is pretty much worth the membership itself.
We had Mabel’s 2 year well check, where we discovered that we were there 8 days early so she couldn’t get her shot….so we get to go back sometime for that. Yippee. But, other than that snafu, she was deemed a happy and perfectly healthy little girl. And both girls were so well behaved, it ended with suckers for everyone!
Mabel has been ALL about painting lately. She brings me the paints and asks so, so sweetly to “paint?? paint?” So I get her all set up with her brushes and a big piece of paper and she will happily paint away for a shockingly long time. It is fantastic!
We recently had a get together at our pastor’s house and the girls discovered their tire swing. By the next evening, Jim had their very own tire swing set up in our backyard! Both girls just love it.
Oh Mabel and her pink boots. Can’t get enough.
So, Abigail is losing teeth like crazy. She has now lost her two front teeth and one bottom tooth! I think she’s done for a while(at the very least, none are currently loose) and that has been one huge leap into her looking even older! I can’t believe she is going to be 7 later this year!
The Joplin tornado anniversary came and went, it is always such a bittersweet day- so, so much sadness for what happened, but so much pride for how our city has rebuilt and moved forward since then.
On Memorial Day, we opted to visit Five Guys for some burgers and I thought to myself that we had eaten there about this time last year…..and I was right! Look at these comparison pics almost exactly one year apart!
So not a baby anymore! Very much a toddler girl. I can’t believe how fast it has gone!
This weekend was finally hot enough to break out the swimsuits and the backyard water toys! We blew up the pool Mabel got for her birthday and the girls ran through the sprinkler toys we have as well.
These twinning swimsuits. I am OBSESSED.
And that’s a little bit of what we have been up to lately!
Abigail is currently preparing for her very first dance recital AND is going to be in her very first play(Charlotte’s Web!) in just a little over a week, so our weeknights have been crazy busy with practices and rehearsals. Mabel and I are just along for the ride 😉
