Luke and Kat Knotts!

These got placed out of order...but here we are with Cam and Linnea.
Not sure why I am standing so awkward! As bridesmaids we got to pick any black dress that was to our knees. I got mine for $8.99 at Francesca's and Linnea got hers for $14.99 at Forever 21! (Kat bought us all the white sashes to add to the dress.)

Luke and Kat got married this morning...we had such a fun day celebrating the two of them!

All ready for pictures...we got our hair done at 6:30am!

The happy couple at the reception...I love this one! Congratulations! We love you so much, thanks for letting us share in this special day.

Last day of Preschool!

Today was the boys last day of preschool. The parents all came at the end of the day for a picnic lunch. Our kids love this preschool. We are so thankful for such good teacher and friends for our boys! Jackson was very sad that this would be his last day of school...what a little sweetheart.

When Emmett sleeps or naps in his pack and play, this is how I find him when he wakes up! He pulls the mattress up and folds it over and snuggles into the corner of the crib. I have NEVER seen any kid do this before and he does it EVERY time!

This morning we woke up and were so excited to get to play outside right away. I put Emmett in this sleeveless one piece and he proceeded to pick out this hat and these gloves!

After playgroup this morning, I brought home two extra kids! We took advantage of the warm weather and pulled out the water toys. (Gwen was such a trooper wearing the boys clothes!)

We turned our rope swing into the "mountain dew swing" like at Covenant Point! Maybe we need a bigger pool!!!

helping our neighbor

Our neighbors were trying to plant a new bush, but found this went then dug down! My boys were ready with their shovels to help dig out the root. It took three days to get the whole thing out and we were right there the whole time.

Erik turns 32!

The boys were so excited that daddy's birthday was finally here. They put up decorations all over the house, they picked out and wrapped all their presents (pictured above!) and were so excited to help with breakfast.

Then we packed up and went on a bike ride to the forest preserve.

This guy was loving the freedom and was excited about everything he saw!

This was the first time we used the 'tag-a-long' and we all loved it. I can't believe how big these kids are getting!

We watched Adeline today. She had to borrow some of our things...does she look just like Emmett?

For those of you who didn't know, we use g diapers for Emmett. I am in love with them, but now even more so. Check out these "g campers" he got from Nana and Papa for Easter! I love just letting him walk around in his diaper.

Everyone gets to meet Naomi

We were lucky enough to watch Gwen and Sonja this morning while Cam and Linnea got ready to come home. This also meant that they came to our house to pick them up, which also means Naomi visited our house for the first time. Everyone was so excited to hold her. She is one lucky girl!

Welcome Naomi Linnea

Cam and Linnea welcomed Naomi on Saturday night. We were so excited to hear about her safe and quick arrival. When I woke up on Sunday morning, I realized that with a busy day ahead of me I wouldn't be able to make it to see her unless I went before church! So, I got everyone ready and called up my good friend Nellie to watch them while I ran over. I just love meeting those babies when they are still so new! She is so cute and even had her eyes open the whole time I was there. Just so all of you know Gwen has decided that it was perfect that they had another girl because "Caleb can marry Gwen, Jackson can marry Sonja and Emmett can marry Naomi."
