Been enjoying the warm weather a lot this month by eating lunch outside.  This girlie always has to put one foot up!

Fiddlers and Easter 2015

We went to an Old Time Fiddlers Dance in Surry, NC that we heard about through our local clogging group one Friday night and had a lot of fun!  Elijah and Betty especially enjoyed it.  They were the stars of the dance floor.

 I'm trying to actually get ahead of time and made Betty's Easter dress early this year.  Now to make Cora's which takes much more fabric and time.  

Betty turns 1!

Always cracks me up when babies fall asleep in the high chair.  Just so sleepy!

February part 2

Betty got an early birthday present we brought home from Ikea in Charlotte - a little walker wagon.  She does like to walk along with it but not as much as she likes to sit in it.  

February 2015 part 1

Here is my little goofball Valentine who I spend my days with while Cora is at school.  Love this boy and his sweet kisses!

Elijah turns 4!

Our little guy turned 4 years old!  He has been telling people so long that he is almost 4, now he can finally tell people that he is 4 years old!

early January 2015

One of the things the kids got up to after Christmas but before returning to school was this fashion show.  Cora came up with the idea, of course, and also served as the MC.  (Unbrushed hair and all).  The kids took enjoyed playing in the empty space in the guest room which is usually a big sewing mess.  Cora requested some new outfits for her bunny which is what gave her the idea for her fashion show.  She made little ribbons out of construction paper which she awarded to all of the participants.

Christmas 2014

Christmas Eve jammie pics!  We let them open one present early and of course, it was Christmas pjs!  This year I bought these cute little elf and Santa suits instead of sewing some.  Ryan and I got new ones too but not matching this year.

It's beginning to look...

The kids got to see Santa at the ward Christmas party.

December happenings

Getting ready for Christmas with a fun sticker advent calendar from Mom.

Thanksgiving 2014

 This Thanksgiving we all gathered at Mom and Dad's house for an old-fashioned, Wei family get-together!  It was fun and a little crazy with 28 people.  We had everyone from the Wei side together except for Aimee, who had to work in IL.

Asheville and more

In November we took advantage of a continuing education conference for Ryan down in Asheville NC and took a weekend trip with the kids.  We took a trolley tour of the city to see a lot of the sights.  Here we are at the beautiful Grove Park Inn.


We woke up on the day after Halloween to this:


A week before Halloween we had a fun trunk or treat party at the church.  Cora and Betty and Ryan dressed up in Care Bear costumes that I made and Elijah wanted to be a bat.  NOT Batman, by the way, just a bat.  I didn't manage to get a good pic of Elijah's wings/cape (I wanted to get one of him hanging upside-down) but you can kind of get the picture below.
