I love seeing the girls wearing the same outfits. Cece is simply taller than the other two when they were 14 months old, and is wearing 2T clothes about 5 months earlier than they did. I love their different genetics!
Color Me Mine called me to say that something had gone wrong when the penguin was fired, and they offered to give me a full refund or the chance to paint a new penguin. We count it as a big score, because Lynnie likes her "bubbly" penguin and she got another penguin, too.

When we went back to pick up Penguin #2, Lynnie would not sit too close to Cece, so that the penguin would be safe.

After church, we spent a golden half an hour hanging out in Greg's office with him. The girls were giggling and laughing, and walking Cece all over. We were so amazed by their goodness and joy and life. What a blessing to know them and be a part of their lives!

We went to Kaydren and Steve's wedding reception and had a great time. For their guest book, everyone had an instamatic picture taken, and we wrote our names at the bottom. This picture is pretty classic of us -- Cece is asleep on Greg's shoulder (it was after 8 p.m.), Lynnie is making a face, and Ellie is dutifully smiling.
Highlight of Lynnie's week -- Tobyn came with Ky to the reception! Lynnie was complaining about 5 minutes in that she was ready to go home. And then her "Tovyn" showed up and she was glued to his side the rest of the night. And sad when it was time to leave!
On Saturday, we planted the garden with cold weather plants and were very proud of ourselves for having a garden in before Memorial Day (our usual m.o.). As a reward, we went to see Cinderella. After having dinner at the deli at Thanksgiving Point.
I got Cece to nap for about 40 minutes of the movie, and spent the rest of the time with her in the hallway. We haven't tried many movies with the girls, and it is a learning process. After it was over, Ellie and Lynnie decided they loved it.
. : all snuggled up and sound asleep on Daddy's pillows : .
We got to play with Tayler and her children today at the Museum of Natural Curiosity. Ellie had the day off school, so it made it perfect to meet them. They nap in the afternoon, so it is best to play in the morning, which means we get to play when Ellie doesn't have school.
Cece was feeling better, but she was still tired and just content to hang back in the stroller. She was really mellow the whole time. We started off in an art room that Ellie had found when her class took a field trip to the museum.
Lynnie was drawing a dolphin while Piper & Ellie played with a spinning wheel and some sand.

Before we headed outside to play, Tayler took Ellie and Piper to the bathroom. Lynnie talked to Hudson and kept him happy, while I kept Cece's stroller moving so she would be happy.
. : Cece never did fall asleep, even though it looks like she is asleep here : .
Such a fun morning! We love spending time with our birth families.
