Beautiful Butterflies

The butterflies at the Museum of Natural History are amazing!! Emaline must be extra lucky because one of the butterflies stuck with her for quite a while!!

Touring D.C.

Our tour continued today!! Even after seeing the Museum of Air and Space and the Museum of Natural History, Emaline still prefers the subway!!

It was a beautiful day in Washington D.C. today! Of all of the things we saw today, the most exciting to Emaline is definitely the metro/subway!! She says it was the best day of her life!!

Emaline loves Joshie:)

Today Emaline drew a picture on our driveway of herself with her wonderful friend Josh, or as she calls him, Joshie. It was so cute, and I started thinking of how long they have been friends. They have been friends since we moved here a little over 4 years ago. They were just babies when they started playing together. They have been calling each other boyfriend/girlfriend for about 3 years now. They made these "wedding invitations" in Sunday school a couple of months ago. Now, Emaline insists that she will marry Joshie!:) We just feel that they are still a little young for that! Anyway, here are some pics of them together through the years.

The above video was created by my friend Beth!! It is really cute!! Enjoy!!!

Our Kitty Linus

We thought we would share our cuddly kitty!! He is Em's buddy and our oldest child. He is now 10 years old!! We must boast that he is very loving, cuddly, and amazingly tolerant. We think he is the best kitty ever!!

Counting Down the Days!!

Getting Ready for Ho Ho Ho!!

We have been getting ready for Christmas!! Of course no one is quite as excited as Emaline!! I think she adds to her Santa list every day!! I always ask if she told Santa about all of these things. She had her "Joyful Noise" Christmas musical at church last Sunday. They were great!!
