emery's new boyfriends

Emery got to hang out with the Longmeier twins this weekend Burgh and Theron. We adore this family!! Aren't they the sweetest boys?! I have known these boy's dad since he was born. Auntie KayC. has been a long time BFF and I still can't believe Kevy is a dad of these beautiful boys. We are so excited Grace and Kevin are at our church now!!! Emery can grow up with the Longmeier boys at church.. . . so fun and we get to see the whole family a whole lot more!!!

fall morning at the lake

we had the best Fall morning at the lake. we grabbed egg mcmuffins and lattes and headed up to the lake to get started closing down. it was gorgeous and sunny but perfect crisp 75 degrees. i think i like the lake best in the Fall. keagan said it was better than Christmas morning. my two cuties!
she always closes her eyes and laughs when dad kisses her.

lucia found this worm and carried it around most of the morning.

daddy and his sugar.
we didn't even know the harvey and henry were going to be up there. what a great surprise.
we love Fall around here and the lake just made it even better.

way to go kinkade

kinkade came sprinting down the sidewalk from school with another tooth in hand and a super shark award! he lost another tooth at school and now has 4 gaping holes in his mouth! the super shark award read -
"Thank you for being a kind and helpful partner in math yesterday! You're a star!"

lucia at home with mom!

Everyone keeps asking if Lucia misses her brothers since they are gone all day. I wish the answer was yes. . but it is no she LOVES the attention!! Here are some of her favorite activities when she is home with mom. . . . Yep she pulls around her brother's snake all day. . . she runs and gets it the second they get out the door.
Kisses for the snake!

Lucia is in a huge books stage. She wants to read books all day. Mother Goose is her favorite she turns to 'Hey Diddle Diddle' , 'Baa Baa Black Sheep', and 'Puffer Engines', and sings them over and over again. I got it on video and as soon as I learn to download video on blogger I will post it. Her very favorite morning activity is animal tea parties in the bathtub. Some mornings she is in the bath for two hours having different tea parties with all the plastic animals. What could be better when you are two years old? Now she has started star wars tea parties. She of course had to have a set from Disneyland. Our family is so weird!
Concentrating on giving the pig a cup of tea. . .
Little story to leave you with. . and to just document so I don't forget. This morning for preschool she was supposed to bring something with her name on it. So we sent her with a darling blanket made from that our dear friends the Millers gave to her when she came home. It says her full name on it first, middle and last. . .. every time we said "Jacinta" she would say I'm scared of Santa. . I don't like Santa! So now she thinks her middle name is "Santa."

emery's first tooth and disneyland!

Aaron and I just got back from southern CA with the Whitworth Volleyball team. We had a tournament there and Aaron had lots of events, and meetings to attend. So the last day we took the volleyball team to Disneyland. Emery came with us on the trip and was a great traveler! Here is the team with Eyore and Emery at Disneyland!
Love these girls. . we have the most amazing twin girls on our team from Hawaii!

Alex loves Emery and holds her every chance she gets! Not to bad to have 13 big sisters for the weekend.
Emery was either wide eyed or asleep at Disneyland . . lots to look at.

Look at that cute little tooth!

lucia's first day of preschool

Lucia had her first day of preschool today! She did fabulous and continues to be the most enthusiastic human God every made! She loved it! She told me all about everything on the way home. . she told me more details about her day than I've gotten out of the boys in 3 years of taking them to school. Dad met us there to take her on her first day.
Ready to go with her backpack!

And she is off. . .

first day first grade!

I have to start by saying I LOVE FIRST GRADE!! It is my favorite. I taught first grade for 6 years! It is such a fun age and it is a miracle year with how much they learn! It was so important to me that the boys have a really strong foundation in first grade with a spectacular teacher! Huge answer to prayer we got a super star teacher. I felt when I taught first grade that my number one job was that each studet LOVED school and felt great about them selves as learners. I pray the boys have that year! We are off to a great start with such a quality teacher. Here they are this morning . . Lucia had to have her backpack and be in every picture. She has to do everything the boys do. . . she won't even sit in her high chair anymore. Our four kiddos. . . too many humans to look cute so early in the morning so emery is still in her jammies. But babies are always cute in their jammies:)
Grampy and Grammy of course came up to give the boys kisses and send them off. Then they stayed and watched the girls while we walked the boys to school.

We made quiche for breakfast to get a great start and it is Kinkade's favorite meal! Look who else loved it!
I had to take a walk down memory lane and post all the first day photos of the boys. Here is last year in Kinder.
This is preschool when they were four.

Love these preschool when they were three!

I think first day of school pictures are my favorite all year. It is such an exciting day. I just LOVE school! Maybe that is why I became a teacher. Tomorrow is Lucia's first day of school so stay tuned. . I bet you can't wait to see her first day outfit:)
