Happy First Birthday Emily!

We have taken a long hiatus from posting, mostly due to not living at home for a long time.  My goal this summer is to get back into the habit of posting something about the girls once a month.  I figured Emily's first birthday would be a great place to start! We had a great day at Peace Valley Park. Emily and Maggie had a blast!  We can't believe Emily is one already and she is doing so much! Walking, saying Mama and Dada, and climbing everything!!!

December 2013

We had an amazing December! I think every weekend was filled with family and adventure.  The girls eagerly awaited Christmas! We got our tree, met Santa, and decorated the house.  Maggie even joined MumMum, Aunt Ryry and Mommy on our yearly shopping trip - which really is a trip to Cheese Cake Factory.  We played in the snow and spent time with our cousins.  The month flew by and we had so much fun!  It was a great first Christmas for Emily and Maggie really showed her the ropes!  We can't wait for what the next month brings!

Check out a small sampling of pictures!

November 2013

November was filled with lots of family and Thanksgiving fun!  We had a great month that ended with a full family Thanksgiving!  We had the Dennis, Kohns, McShanes, Julians and Elkins families all under one roof at Aunt Kari and Uncle Josh's house. Kari did a great job hosting and as always, there was far too much food and dessert.

October 2013

We had a great month filled with birthdays and holidays! Maggie turned three and had her first friend party. We also spent many Saturdays and Sundays at birthday parties for her friends from school.  We had a great Disney themed Halloween and imagination celebration at the girls school.

OCMD 2013

We had another awesome year at OCMD with the family! This year we added Sean, Max and Riley to the family fun!  It was Emily's first trip to the beach and she did a great job!  We can't wait to go back again next year when Maggie and Emily will both be running through the sand!

July & August

Ok, it has been a whirlwind summer, so I am going to attempt to summarize the months of July and August. Maggie and Emily had many great days by the pool with lots of visitors coming to play. Maggie went to Knoebels with the Kohn, Strauss and Elkins family.  We all took a trip up state for both family reunions and Emily won the best behaved in the car award! - better luck next year Maggie...We went to the zoo, baseball games and did a million different things! Best of all, Maggie continued to teaching Emily all about the world around her and they are the best of friends!

4th of July

We had a wonderful 4th of July at home with the Kohn and Strauss family! It was the perfect day for swimming and the kids and adults did just that...ALL day long!  All of the cousins played the day away and then we did some fireworks before bed, thanks to Uncle Josh!  It was a great day!
