Here are my smallest Frozen Fans. They were so thrilled when we came home with these shirts for them. However, they are sizes 6 and 7-8. NOT the sizes 2 and 4 my girls wear... so they'll last, right?
They love them!
Plus they say... Family Forever!

What is Juliana doing on the tablet? Playing with the camera, or some educational game? Music? Movies? TV show? Books? Drawing?
It isn't even on.
She is giggling at her reflection on the black screen.
"Anna!" she says.
Who needs apps for toddlers? Not me.
I remember photographers would get upset because my babies wouldn't smile... other than this HUGE wide smile that looked more like they were cracking up... well, that's what my little ones do when they are happy!!!
And yes, Benjamin is doing an excellent photobomb.
And here it is... the annual, wow, the Valencics dressed as cows and got $75 of free food and had a lot of fun doing it!
(This is the first time in a few years we had everyone, due to Benjamin and Michael being at Scout Camp in July)
The cow is photo-bombing us... and scared Juliana in the back there.
Yes, it's a lot of notebooks but not as many as I bought the year they were 5 cents each... and I still need more to get through the year without having to buy them for 6 times as much!
I do love school supply shopping but sometimes it's a huge guess to make sure we get the right amount.

Ginny was playing with blocks (and testing out a handmedown Bumbo seat) (and wearing Halloween jammies... because she can!) ... then Timothy and Christopher built her a tower!
We had a huge, tornado producing, hail riddled, windy thunderstorm last night. Liberty, who is terrified of thunder, could not go to bed without crying or screaming. We tried to help her see the beauty of thunderstorms but it wasn't quite successful. She fell asleep, feeling safe on the couch with her favorite blanket and between two protective older brothers.
Juliana, all ready for church, saying she's ready to go to church! She loves Nursery (though seemingly not this day...) and singing and being there. She loves being pretty, too, as we believe in wearing our best to church.
Here are my brother Jason and I... in the middle of nowhere, Oklahoma. We met to pass on baby stuff and well, see each other for the first time in a long time. With storms and traffic we weren't able to spend much time but here's a picture! I'm laughing because Emilie (I brought her and Ginny) insisted on the owl being in the picture. Jason stuck it in my hair.
Yes, I did. I gave a bearded dragon a bath. He wasn't too fond of me, but he needed it. Apparently baths are good for dragon digestion and for shedding. Martin is doing quite well now. No matter how much he gives "looks that kill". Mighty dragon indeed.
