May 2011 Family Photos

Thought we'd share these with you all! There isn't an individual one of Lorelei because she has already had her 4 year and in about three months she'll have her 5 year photo! It was perfect timing for Ellie's 6 month and Charlotte's 3 year photo in May!

7 month old Ellie!

Here are some (or a LOT) of photos of our 16 pound 5 oz, 7 month old bundle of smiles: Ellie Kate! She is learning to clap, loves to eat mashed peas, pumpkin, squash and cheerios, plays peek-a-boo and has started babbling "ma-ma-ma" when she wants me or to eat! She is so much fun!

A (White) Memorial Day Weekend to remember!

We spent Memorial Day weekend up in Tahoe (Incline Village) and stayed with my parents at a time-share condo there. It was beautiful and SNOWING! Who would have thought that a Holiday weekend known for water sports and summer-kick-off BBQ's would be dominated by massive snow flakes and freezing temperatures this year! It was even darn cold in the valley! Oh well...we had a blast anyway. And more importantly it was Charlotte's Third Birthday weekend as well! We celebrated with both sides of our family the week before as well. Is it really true that our little Charlotte is now three? When did that happen? She went from my baby to another one of my "big girls" overnight! *sniff, sniff* Since the weather was so un-summerish, we hunkered down in the condo for a few days of game playing, yummy food, drinks and naps whenever we wanted! The girls had a blast playing on the stairs in the condo and Ellie was her usual easy-going self (except for the fact that she has to have me in view at ALL TIMES!) We ventured out several times for meals and some shopping but we mostly hung out and it was wonderful. Not having the chores from home staring you in the face is quite liberating! Charlotte's Birthday (our second day there) was low-key and nice. She helped Grandma frost her cake and we all had fun playing with her new toys. She was one happy camper! It does not take a whole lot to please this little gal! We even fit in some time for a snow ball fight (the girls ate their snow balls) and some mini snowman building! What an unexpected treat for Memorial Day weekend!
