Busy Busy Bees

We've been busy, busy bees!

First off, all of my whining about the weather has, apparently, paid off ;)


We've had a two day break from the rain, and the thermometer hit 86 degrees this weekend! WOOHOOOO!


Sierra and Makenna have been practing and preparing for their upcoming dance recital. They dance Up and down the grocery aisles, in the living room, outside, you name it. It's pretty cute. After my doctor appointment on Friday {more on that later}, we stopped by Michael's to pick up some things we could use in making little gifts for the girls' classmates. Kenners chose these little suckers. And we saw the butterflies, and couldn't resist. So we turned them into hair clips.


Sierra decided to make bracelets for the girls in her Jazz 3 class. After I snapped this photo we added a little sterling disc stamped with the girls' initials.


Oh, and did I mention the weather has been gorgeous?! I did? Oh, well, it's worth mentioning twice ;) {Did ya notice that someone lost another tooth?}


If you're new here, or missed it before, we live right next door to my parents. We each own 20 acres that adjoin, and it's such fun for the girls to have their grandparents nearby {Jeremy's parents are just up the road too, making it extra special!} Sierra's been holding on to this mailbox since Valentine's Day in hopes of putting it up where our driveways meet, so that they can exchange notes.


Oh, and did I mention? We've been having some nice weather ;)

Isn't it lovely that summer weather has finally kicked in. We were out most of Saturday and loved it. I love the mailbox idea and that you live so close to your parents. I don't think I realized you have 20 acres...whoa!

I can't believe she's lost another tooth, Abby still hasn't lost that one in front and now another "shark" tooth is next to it down there. EEK!

Those bracelets are so pretty too!

We have those little mailboxes too. After Valentine's day, the girls put them in their rooms on their dressers and they write notes to each other and leave gifts. It's the sweetest thing. :)
