Here are a few pictures that I did not want to loose from mine and Emily's girls night a couple weeks ago. We went down to the Virginia Highlands in Atlanta and had a wonderful night. It was mid January and it was so warm outside we were able to sit on the patio. I do like that about Atlanta. Oh how I miss my sisters. I wish they still lived right down the road from me.

On Saturday we were able to go out with some other couples and it was soooooooo much fun. It is always fun when someone else bathes my kids and puts them to bed for me! Oops did I say that out loud. We had a great baby sitter this week. It was one on my sisters childhood friends, who now lives in Atlanta. She was wonderful, and my kids loved having her around. Anyway back to my Saturday night. Most of these women and I have become friends through church or our children's school. I heart these ladies and their families and am so thankful God has put them in our life. Luckily all of our husbands get along well and it make for fun times. All but one of these couples is very new to East Cobb and it is so wonderful that we are all new and are trying to maneuver through this together.
On Sunday Emma Grace was invited to her friend Abby's birthday party. Now that we are not in preschool anymore it was so nice for Emma Grace to get to see some of her old friends. It was so cute when a few of the boys walked up to Emma Grace and said "Where have you been at school we have missed you." I just loved that they noticed she was gone and it made her feel so good about herself. Although ever since the party she has been wanting to go back to school to see her friends. Next week her and I will start doing tours of private kindergarten options for next year. We don't feel she is ready for public kindergarten but we will probably do private one, and determine after the year if she is ready for public first grade or if we need another year in kindergarten in the public setting.
Back to Abby's birthday..... there were ponies and all the kids loved them except mine. She said there were ponies in Arkansas on the farm, and she was scared of them. But she did love the rope swing and she suckered Ms. VanLoh into pushing her on the swing.
We are going to miss Abby and her family so much, because they are moving to Seattle to work for Amazon in a couple weeks. We are so happy for them because it is an awesome opportunity but I am going to miss Abby's mom so much. She has become a dear friend of mine. Oh well such is life.

Right before Christmas break I took the twins back to the doctor to have their ears checked because they just were not feeling well. Turns out they both had double ear infections again, so I did what any rational mom would do and I pulled all three of my babies out of their preschool program. I am not sure what I was thinking because now I have to get Emma Grace ready for kindergarten all by myself, and now I really never get a minute to myself. Oh well, I am not putting another child in tubes and I really was not 100% happy with Emma Grace’s preschool teachers anyway.
A big first for us is that at 16 months old Ms. Addison has started to walk (some). She now knows how to walk and we know that for a fact, but she still prefers to crawl.
So those are our first for the New Years. Speaking of New Year’s, I did not really make any New Year’s resolutions because I suck at getting all things done these days, but I do hope to blog more, not just post pictures but write stories about the kids. We will see how that goes.

This is Alison and Brianna and Taylor. A and B are twins, and when they wore these shirts I commented that for twins they had very different sports opinions. Brianna quickly piped up and said "we are faternal twins."
