Easter Week

We brought in a ladder to check if we have speakers installed in the ceiling or if it's just "speaker-ready." (Unfortunately, it looks like we need to buy speakers.) The girls just had to get on the ladder. Of course Grammy was having a heart attack, but we had fun.

Allie was watching a DVD on her portable player and Kate decided to lounge on her while she drank her bottle. This picture was taken at Grammy and Bocky's. Every once in awhile Kate lounges on her like this. She just wants to be next to her. It's really cute, and Allie will actually let her do it for awhile.

Allie was trying to hug Kate, but she obviously wasn't very happy about it!
The Easter Bunny hopped on over and brought Allie and Kate a lot of yummy, fun things. But the bubbles that "that rabbit," as Allie calls him, brought her didn't work. Luckily Grammy found the bubble gun that "that rabbit," for some strange reason, left in the closet. Both girls had a blast. Kate was so upset that she couldn't catch the bubbles though. And Allie wouldn't share the bubble gun. Sadly the bubbles ran out, and we had to put everything away before any hair was pulled.

My mom found some black boots for Allie for Christmas. They were her favorite present by far--they even outweighed the jeep we got her. For some strange reason she thinks that she should only be wearing her underwear and princess jewelry with them. (My mom keeps asking what we're watching on TV, but we keep telling her nothing like that!) She added the Mr. Potatohead Lips and her princess purse, but this is basically "the" outfit. It's even better when we put music on and she starts dancing. It's definitley a sight to see!
These were taken over Thanksgiving at my parents' house. Uncle Stevie brought their quads and took Allie around the block. She was in heaven! The picture below is of her waiting for Steve and the boys to return from a ride.

Allie drawing and Kate watching patiently.
Here's a picture of Laci and Allie playing dress up on Chad and Neil's birthday at my parents' house. Laci (Neil and Amanda's daughter) and Allie were born 12 days apart and look SO much like each other, especially in person.
Kate was home with a double ear infection and Allie was at school, so she was into all of Allie's stuff. She's wearing Allie's ruby shoes, but she didn't want to put her own shoes down so she carried them around the house.

This is Becky, Kate's main caretaker at school. Kate hadn't seen her in a few days and was so excited to see her. She snuggled into her shoulder and was as happy as ever.

Kate was on the couch with a bag of booty puffs. She thought she was pretty cool being able to dig into the bag herself.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Kate.
Kate's always loved the piano--hopefully she'll be a willing participant in the piano lessons she'll be required to take!

Our great friends the Steinbergs came to watch Chad's CIF championship game. Allie and Jaidyn had a blast.

Kate and Jordyn were playing together, or I should say next to each other.
This was taken on Christmas morning (before showering and make-up). :)

Chad and the girls sometime in February.
