First Day of Advent

In celebration of the first day of Advent, Evangeline and the family prepared this reading of Jesus' birth.

Tahoe for Turkey

We hopped on a plane to make another trip to Tahoe. We survived another flight with Juliet, and Evangeline was as content as always. I hope the single, kidless gal in front of us enjoyed her entire row to herself.

The girls helping Kev work. I sure he was very productive. 

Birthday Party

In hopes of catching as many kids as possible we threw Evangeline's birthday a week early to avoid the holiday weekend! This was the first birthday that she helped plan and was old enough to be excited for!  

Princess and Pirates

Instead of playing Evangeline helped Aunt Linds and I set up. 

I never liked the "Happy Birthday" song either. Does anyone?

Just because we've been lacking on Ju posting lately. For your viewing pleasure.

We Go Big

Evangeline worked really hard and learned new skills for several days and filled up her star chart. 

Her reward: Courtside seats at the Blazer game. 

Dinner of choice: pizza, French fries and ranch. Lots of ranch. 

Checking out our seats. 

Game opener 

Cheering on the team!

Evangeline took a few pictures. 

She was showered with goodies by the blazer staff. 

She even got some TV time. 

I think it's safe to say she enjoyed her hard earned reward.

Hide and Seek

This is how they were found while "hiding" during a game of hide and seek at the Toyota dealership today.

Setting the Stakes

I have no doubt Evangeline will have very high expectations for her future husband. Look at the example she has to follow. 

Evangeline's first date:
He bought her flowers

He bought her a nice dinner at a nice restaurant. 

He complimented her all night. 

He took her on a beautiful walk

He even got her dessert and a surprise train ride.  

And he's the best looking guy around.

Lincoln and Evangeline

Tiffany's reaction- oh my heart. This is the cutest thing I've ever seen. 

Kev's reaction- If he ever wants to throw a baseball with that hand he better go find something else to do.

Some days I'll do anything to get a shower in. 

This lasted all of 30 seconds.

I love finding little gems in the Couv. Last week the girls and I found a coffee shop that was to all of our liking!

Treehouse full of books!

Shelves and shelves of toys

And everything just the right size.

Betty Sue

Evangeline got to go on a very special date tonight with her Betty Sue. To say Evangeline had fun would be an understatement.
