Hello everyone! I'll give you a moment to pick your jaw up off of the floor since I know you are each amazed that this is my 3rd blog post in under two weeks. I'm trying :)

We had a great weekend around our house, and are looking forward to another this weekend. Ethan's parents are coming up on Friday to close on a house here in Oxford! We are so excited!!! They are going to totally renovate a house here and eventually they will have a home up here! This is such a blessing for everyone and we couldn't be prouder for them!

Haley and Mackensy are both growing and changing every day. Haley is very big into dress up right now. As soon as we get home in the afternoons the first thing she wants to do is to "put on her dress up" She's got a whole bucket full of stuff, and every time she comes out and says "do I look pretty?!" She's so modest LOL. She is really taking on a whole new personality. She's learning so much at school and amazes us daily with what she knows and can do. She can spell her entire name, she knows how to spell most of her colors, and she LOVES to sing. She also is grasping the fact that there are days of the week. Though she still refers to anything that happened in the past as "a long time ago" :) Last Wednesday our good friends the Meurrier's asked Haley if she could go to church with Myla. They have moved and are not our neighbors anymore so Haley was MORE Than excited to get to go. She had a blast and she and Myla picked up where they left off! So, Myla asked if Haley could go "every single Wednesday" and Haley has been counting the days. Just doesn't seem like she should understand time just yet :)

Here is a picture of the two silly girls having dinner together over the holidays

Mackensy is getting WAY too big too fast! She is such a character. Last night Rachel and Kera came over to eat dinner. When Mackensy was done she got down and proceeded to run from side to side playing "boo" with Kera. They would both laugh and do it again! Amazes me how she knows how to play with her younger cousin so well! Mackensy is talking a lot, some of what we understand, and most of what we don't. But she is very good at communicating, even if we don't REALLY know what she is saying. She also has learned to be very SNEAKY. You can't turn your back for one minute, because whether or not we want to admit it, she can get into pretty much anything :) The other night I was fixing supper and Mackensy was off playing. We should have known she was into something because she was very quiet...

She had found Haley's markers, and was apparently hungry! Luckily they were washable. She's such a joy, quite the character, and LOVES her big sister more than anything. If we are home and Haley isn't there she constantly asks for her. I hope they are always that close...wishful thinking right?!

Well that's about it for today. Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Until next time...
