While in California we decided to snap a few family pictures. We went up to Paradise for the afternoon and it was lovely. Paradise is so dreamy. It made for the perfect back drop to our quick little family photo shoot. We had so much fun and enjoyed being back in Paradise.

We went to Chico, California for Thanksgiving this year with Tyler's family to visit Grandma Inez and the Fredrickson cousins.  We had such a good time catching up with everyone, seeing good movies, shopping, exercising together, and enjoying the hotel life.  The weather was so nice, too. It was so warm there- no jackets needed.  It was another wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sometimes when Tyler is gaming, all Jade wants to do is hang out with dad and play too. She thinks it's so cool when she gets to hold her own controller. 

1 Year Check Up

Weight :: 16.5 pounds  // 1% 
Length :: 28.5 inches // 29% 

Daddy makes Doctors visits so much better. This was the first visit Jade cried while the doctor was examining her. She usually is all smiles, but this time she was scared of his doctor tools. Jade cried pretty good after her shots, too. Once Tyler took her outside she calmed right down. I was suprised Jade gained less than half an ounce since her last visit. I was really hoping she would have gained at least a pound. I guess she is just going to be a tiny thing.

The Red Barn

22 October 2013

A little over a month ago, we decided to take the kiddos to The Red Barn pumpkin patch. 
It was a gorgeously warm fall day and the patch was so entertaining. Our kiddos loved it and the mamas loved it just as much. We had so much fun and it was seriously a perfect day. It was definitely my favorite day of fall this year. I love this group of girls so much. I am so lucky to have them as my close friends. We have such a strong friendship and love for one another. My hope is that our kids will grow up and feel the same way and all be close friends.   

This was the first time we have all had our kids together at the same time. It melted my heart to see them all interacting and playing with one another. They are all such wonderful babies and have such sweet personalities. It's so cute to see them have fun together. I am so thankful for great friends and for the bond of motherhood.
