Back in December of 2015, my baby girl turned two years old. She has been such a fun addition to our family. We sure love our little, spunky Nora. The other kids dote on her and love to take care her and play with her. She is a funny girl that know just how to push your buttons. At two, she was quite the little talker. She loved babies and princess shoes. She cannot leave a scab alone, and had this nasty owie on her nose for over a month because she couldn't stop scratching the scab off! Her favorite color is purple, and she wanted a purple cake. She was a pretty picky eater at the time, but loves all things in the dairy group: milk, cheese, cottage cheese, and yogurt. She usually loves macaroni and cheese, so for her birthday we took her to Noodles & Company thinking she would love the mac & cheese. Since it was different than your regular old Kraft, she wouldn't touch it and didn't eat a thing there. Kind of a let down birthday dinner!
Here are the photos from the day!
I was very pleased with how her cake turned out. It was a cute one!
Sweet Mylie helped me make all the pompoms for the water bottles. It was fun :)
The first beautiful snowstorm of the year happened the night before Thanksgiving. It was one of those memories I will never forget. It was the first snowstorm at our new house, and it was a good one! It was absolutely breathtaking! We are blessed to live next to a beautiful little "forest" of trees. It is so beautiful in the winter when those trees are covered in snow.
The kids were so excited Thanksgiving morning. Of course we had to go out and enjoy it! It was also so fun to see Nora experience her very first snow. The winter previous really had no good snowstorms, plus we were living in the apartment. Winter of 2015~2016 did not disappoint however! This was just the first of so much snow. And even though these trees are beautiful, they make it so that our house happens to be in a colder environment than everyone else around us. Consequently, we would get more snow, and it would stay. It was hard to keep our driveway cleared off! We had huge piles long after everyone else's had melted!
Of course we had to have hot chocolate after we came in!
I've been married to Russell for 14 years. We've been blessed with four beautiful children! I absolutely love being a mom and spending time with my family every day. I take way too many pictures because time just goes by way too fast and I love capturing all those special, fleeting moments!
