No stories or deep posts today....just some cute pictures of the littlest McGrath.  I'm feeling like I need more pictures of this little one, so please excuse the random picture posts that may be headed your way over the next few weeks and months.

One of my most favorite pictures of Abby is closeup of her face while she is crawling toward me (and drooling everywhere).  Try as I might, I've not been able to recreate it with Hazel.  Abby was about 9 months in that picture and I swear these two kids look like I'll keep trying and when I finally get a match, I'm posting them both to prove it :)

1 Family x 12 (March)

I'm working on getting together a few posts about our trip to Hawaii...but for now, I'll leave you with our most recent monthly family photo. Big accomplishments - everyone is looking and nobody is blurry!!  We're making progress.

Easter Eggs 2016

Well, another holiday is in the books.  Ryan and I are finding the holiday's just keep getting more and more fun as the girls get older.  Abby totally understands the whole holiday process now.  We talk about it for a few weeks before, decorate, make crafts, read books, get excited.  Then, for an entire week we celebrate like there is no tomorrow.

Between daycare activities, the things we plan for them at home, and grandparents, Abby and Hazel often get more than one chance to celebrate.  See for them, the Easter Bunny came three times this year.  Once to Kelly's, once at home, and once to Aunt Jan's house.  Shoot, I have a feeling we'll be seeing Peter Cottontail one more time in Iowa in a few weeks with my family.

We did Easter eggs this year with Baby Stella...who really is no longer a baby.  We were definitely missing Kayden and Lincoln, but maybe we can do Easter eggs with them next week as well.

Stella is donning a tiny Christmas apron that my Mom made for Abby last year.  It's rather funny.  

Even Hazel got in on the fun for a little bit.  Sunday dinners with friends are the best!!

1 Family x 12 (Feb)

A little late at posting, but we didn't forget!  Our monthly family photo for Feb.  We were able to sneak this one in the night we dropped off the kids off with Grandma and Grandpa before leaving for Hawaii!!  Another post or two with pictures of that coming soon...but for now, I leave you with our February family photo!
