Happy Birthday, Emily!

Saturday was my sister-in-law, Emily's, big number 24! Emily is such a fun aunt and is always so good at entertaining all of us! The kids and I were lucky enough to spend part of the day with her and hope she finished off the rest of it with a big bang!
Happy Birthday, Emily!! (aka- Anna's favorite Manwaring aunt)

Fun with Emmie!

Two weeks ago, we were able to watch my cute little niece, Emily. She stayed with us for 6 days and we couldn't have had more fun. I'll admit I was a little nervous adding another kid to the bunch, but she actually made things easier. She is the sweetest little thing I've ever seen. She never cried, she would just sit on the floor and play and every time I would walk by she would just look up and smile.

If you can't tell from the pictures, Anna liked her just a bit. I think she was in heaven. We already knew she LOVED babies, but holy cow! She was with her constantly. I just kept telling myself it probably made Emmie feel at home.

We have really missed having her at our house. I now have to make sure I check the Hillam's blog every day so that I can see her sweet little face. She helped make me a little less nervous about having number 4.

The only problem was, on Saturday night while she was here, Justin sold our van, which left us with just the Camry. It was pretty interesting trying to cram the 6 of us in the car to go to church. I just hope Ellie and Anna don't think they can share seat belts all of the time.

Ogden's Ear

Now, I know this is totally disgusting and the picture isn't very clear, but Justin is so proud of himself. Ogden has had a giant piece of wax stuck in his ear for at least a month now, and at least once a week, Justin insists on trying to get it out. Well, the other night, he finally succeeded and wanted the world to see what he calls, the biggest piece of wax he's ever pulled out of one of our children's ears. I know, we're strange, but we're a little obsessed with wax-free ears.

Megan is 8!!

Happy Birthday to my niece, Megan. Megan is such a beautiful little girl. I remember when she was born thinking she was the most perfect little baby ever. We hope you have a great day today, Megan, and we are so happy for you to be baptized.

Happy # 8, Megan!!

Ellie's Program

On Thursday night, Ellie had her 1st and 2nd grade program. It was so nice (it lasted only 30 minutes) and she was so cute to watch. She wouldn't make eye contact with anyone and tried so hard not to smile. She must think it will draw attention to her. Only a couple kids from each class were chosen to have a part, which Ellie couldn't have been more relieved about, and the rest of the kids sang the songs.

It's a little hard to see her in this picture, but she's on the middle row, right in the middle behind the little girl with dark hair and the black and white dress.

I can't believe how big she's getting. She's growing up so fast, but still staying such a sweet little girl.
