Today is our 9th anniversary!  9th!  I can't believe how the time flies.  I am so blessed to have a caring, supportive husband, and to have four beautiful daughters.  Happy day!  And here's to many more wonderful years.

Just another random pose my kids are in while sleeping.  I might add that Keira loves that blanket and loves to take it everywhere.

Tonight my mom came over to help us release some ladybugs into our backyard - on our rose and other flower bushes to be precise.  Ladybugs are a natural pesticide, since they eat aphids.  The girls were pretty excited, although Norah got freaked out once the ladybugs were released from their plastic tub.

the ladybugs are thirsty once they are released, so all the plants needed to be thoroughly watered beforehand

ladybugs everywhere!

Keira turns 3!

Keira's birthday is Cinco de Mayo.  Fitting for her personality, to be honest!  We just had a backyard bbq with the grandparents and had cake and presents.  Nothing too fancy, but we had a good time.

Some things about Keira:

- she loves her red blanket
- she will randomly come up to me and say "I love you mama"
- she is a snuggle bug.  If you are on the couch, she will climb up to be with you
- she loves doing everything her older sisters Ava and Norah do
- while she is very sweet and loving at times, Keira is definitely the most defiant of all our girls
- her favorite toys include her animal train, her walkable LPS, and her plastic animal figures
