He can't wait until he can ride in the front! Sorry it'll be a few more years dude!
Mini donut keychains in the machines at Buffalo Wild Wings - pretty much one of the most exciting moments of Emerson's life!


So pretty but we're so over it my kids didn't even want to go play.

This morning Beckett had Donuts with Dad! He was so excited!

Emerson and I went shopping til 12! We got a car wash too - then we went to Chick Fil A and the DR. for their well visits. Both super tall and very healthy! Showing me their muscles!

Me "remember the dr is going to have to look at your peepee to make sure it's growing right" B "oh it gets bigger when I do this and grows bigger then it goes back to being a small peepee he is not going to believe it!"  Yeah that happened.

After 4 shots and a finger prick we had to go to Toys R Us! Beckett wanted a minion! 


And dancing!

Ugh the day after the funeral - what to do? Grandma doesn't want to stay in the house so we take the kids to Chuck E Cheese! She had a ball. Tonight was a basketball game at the high school in honor of Patti  so I'm thankful we were here to do that! Love this lil town.

Today we woke up to more snow for the visitations. It was a very long day and I lost it when I saw my Grandpa laying in his casket - Beckett told him he would miss his walker rides and Emerson was very concerned that he wouldn't wake up. But they were both very well behaved for the day/night! It was nice to see all of our family today and so many people were lined up to visit. My grandma is an amazing woman! Hoping for some rest tonight! Love you Gramps!

Let's do this....

Emerson loves her Uncle Tommy!

So much snow! And a whopping 6 degrees today!

Fun at the funeral home - who knew?!
