photo booth fun

 We had some fun in the photo booth during the reception
 Love these of Audrey and Zach!

 We managed to get 13 of the cousins into the booth at once

 Tita Angela, Uncle Brett and the kids
 Audrey spent a lot of time in the booth.  She tried getting some all by herself but she was too short.  She was in so many photo booth pics I can't even post all of them :)
Carter never misses a photo opp either.  He had several trips to the booth as well.  Always with a different prop.

Bolgert/Frets Wedding

 Family picture
Brett & Angela, us, Amy & Brandon, Mom & Mike
 Just my family
 It's always great to have the 3 of us together.  It doesn't happen often enough.
 These two were being cute together that day :)
 Such a daddy's girl
 I loved the Milwaukee sign
 The newly weds Sarah & Matt
 My monkey loves to learn and never misses an opportunity to
 These girls always have so much fun together.
 Poor baby missed her nap and almost fell asleep on Aaron's shoulder
 Audrey and Ava got a kick out of drinking their water out of the champagne glasses.  They thought they were being so fancy!
 The rare picture of just the 2 of us.
 Aaron being one of the kids
 I don't think any of them ate much dinner.  They were having too much fun playing by the window.
 Zach is awesome with the kids.  They love spending time with him.
 Evelyn was just standing on the dance floor so Carter and Audrey were trying to get her to dance.
 Audrey spinning her around
 Evelyn and Nora are only days apart.  They were adorable dancing together.
Audrey also loves Aaron.  The kiddos had so much fun with everyone.  They danced until 11.  Even then they didn't want to leave.  I had to make them go because Evelyn couldn't hold on any longer.

A few random pictures

 Evelyn just loves Sasha!  I know this isn't new news but it is just so cute.  When I can't find Evelyn, I just have to find Sasha.  This is the two of them under the kitchen table.  Evelyn always has to know where she is, be the one to feed her and give her treats, let her in and out and of course cuddle with her no matter where she is. 
Evelyn's other obsession is my cell phone camera.  I find multiple selfies on my phone on a daily basis :)
 Even though school has started for Evelyn, she still tries to go to school with the other kiddos.  She stands at the end of the driveway with her backpack on holding Carter's hand.  I have to pick her up when the bus pulls up or she would follow them on.
 The girls packed up their purses, bags and buckets and told me they were leaving for vacation.
 Our grocery store got customer in training carts.  Evelyn loves them!  She actually does a better job than I thought she would not bumping into things.
 The challenge is making sure she isn't sneaking things into her cart we don't need (like the bag of donut holes).  It is cute to watch her organize and make room for more items.  I'm not allowed to put things in my cart unless it doesn't fit in hers :)

 Soccer season was in full swing by September.  We got lucky this year with really nice weather for the majority of the season.
 It's been fun to watch Carter over the last couple of years. He really showed a lot of initiative and went after the ball this season.
 He's by no means ready for a serious travel team yet.  But his skills are really starting to develop.
 I'm glad he is still enjoying it.  It's the only sport he shows interest in.
Audrey ran into one of her preschool friends at one of Carter's games.  She and Elliot had a bit of a crush on each other.  His mom and I would share with each other the cute things they would say about one another.  It was nice they got a chance to play together again.

First day of Toddler Preschool

I don't know if Evelyn or I was more excited for preschool to start.  She missed Carter and Audrey so much and was asking for them constantly.  I knew she was going to miss having them home and it was for this reason that I signed her up for a 2 year old Preschool program.  It's only 2 mornings a week for a couple of hours but it's just what she needs.
 Hanging up her backpack in her cubby.  She loves that it's labeled with her name and picture.
 They had us make a picture book to bring to school.  Evelyn couldn't wait to show her teacher the picture of Sasha!
 She had a fabulous first day and wore herself out.  She fell asleep on the way home.
Evelyn's teachers are amazing!  She is truly loving school.  She asks me to take her on days that she doesn't go.  It's nice for me to have that time to myself and I'm meeting some great moms there too.

2 year pics

 I was in complete denial that Evelyn was turning 2.  I forgot to schedule a 2 year session. My friend Kacey came to the rescue!  She's a photographer and has a studio in her basement.
 She let us come over and she snapped a few of her in between a couple of her sessions.

 I love this one!  It really sums up her personality!  She was being such a goof the whole time.

It really is hard to believe that our baby girl is already 2!  The time just continues to fly by!
