Pink hair

Last week the subject of coloring your hair somehow came up at the dinner table. Ella told use she would like to color her hair to have a pink stripe. Jeremy said “If you keep your nose clean for a week you can get a pink stripe in your hair” For those of you who don’t know, Ella is definitely NOT a nose picker and she doesn’t like to blow her nose … so things can get pretty gross looking. Well she kept it clean for a week so here it is. And Abby got some too since she is good about blowing her nose.


Arts and crafts night …

For mommy!

I’ve had some Christmas fabric for a few years now. I bought it on clearance to make gift bags once I ran out of paper gift bags to reuse and my lifetime supply of wrapping paper ran out.  That day has finally arrived!


Since the sewing machine is set up I suppose I should think about making the throw pillows to match the ottoman Jeremy and I made. I’ve had the fabric for 6 months now!

Happy 1st Birthday Mia!

After 2 parties (Frick and Peterson sides of the family) and a trip to Build a Bear I think we can officially say we have celebrated Maria Evelyn’s first birthday.

It has been a busy, fun, and crazy year. It was a adjustment for mommy to stay home all the time but was the right decision for our family schedules at the time. Who knows what this year will bring.

At 1 years old Mia is crawling like a champ and standing on her own and taking a few steps but not truly walking yet. She can say Dada, mama, and this (while pointing at something). She also signs milk, eat and all done. She loves her sisters and always wants they have – food, toys, art supplies, etc. Mia also likes to cuddle and has started giving kisses.

Since no one can be perfect I will say Mia has been the worst sleeper of the girls, probably because she doesn’t use a pacifier or stick her thumb like the other girls did.  We are trying to encourage a lovey for sleeping but so far she seems to like Abby’s giraffe the best – sorry Mia not an option!
