Random life moments

 This is what happens when daddy does bath time.  Emmy got a hold of the bubbles bottle and poured all of it in her bath.  The result, she and daddy both thought, was awesome.

 And this is what happens when we wake Emmy up before 9am.  She turns over, puts her pillow on her head and covers the rest of her body up, but doesn't say a word.  She is not a morning person!  I love this kid!


Last week Emmy and I attended a baby shower for a long time friend of mine while Caleb few and Emmy got to play with Ellasyn for a short while.  The two eventually decided to escape all the baby talk and went upstairs to Ellasyn's room to play.  I snuck up there with my camera and caught these sweet photos.

They played so well together and when it was time for us to leave, Emmy made sure Ellasyn knew she had fun...

During the baby shower, since Ellasyn wasn't present, Emmy asked almost every attendee if they would play with her.  Clory's parents seemed happy to entertain her.  Or maybe they were the ones being entertained.

 And here is the happy mommy and daddy to be opening presents.

And Emmy soaking up some one on one Clory time!

The food was so good and the company was even better!

While I snapped a few photos, the daddy to be looked after Emmy for me.  I love how they look like they are having such a deep conversation.

And a photo of the Foust Family.  All THREE of them!

LIfe Lately

The end of the year was laid back and busy all at the same time.  I have no idea how it happens like that, but since Emmy is growing up I don't ever really feel rested.   Anyway, I'm not going to bore you with our Christmas happenings (ya know, since that was three weeks ago and all), but here are some highlights from our life lately.

Deer season is over, but during the last week, my dad and brother went hunting every day and Emmy literally begged them to take her hunting too.  Of course I did not let my two year old go deer hunting, but my dad did get out my brother's old bee bee gun and taught her some gun safety and let her shoot it a couple of times. 

You'd think I have a tomboy, but that is not the case.  Sure, Emmy loves to be outside, shooting guns, playing with animals, running around, but...

a girl must be pampered.  And who better to do that than your Uncle Bubby.
It takes a really good uncle to paint his niece's toe nails and finger nails.

I love that boy!  

Hopefully I'll get more snap happy now that things are going a little slower.

The holidays are over and a new year is before us.  And with most of us broke and trying to lose the holiday weight, dare I say, things might start to calm down? We will see.  I am looking forward to so many things this year.  Trips, concerts, baby showers and babies, weddings, another move for our family, zoo trips, Ikea shopping, taking more pictures, actually completing some pinterest projects, girls' nights, and making more memories with family and friends!  So stay tuned for the unpredictable bliss that comes our way!
