january friend time - sleepovers, play dates and lots of baby shea

2014 has started out with lots of fun friend time! 
 The day after we got back from Costa Rica, Ben left for a guys weekend with his bible study guys to the lakehouse. 
 So, it has become a tradition that while they dads are away, we have a mom and kid sleepover! 
 This sleepover was at Lindsey's and I think with 6 moms and 12 kids, we are starting to get the hang of it. 
 These two really didn't even unpack...just switched out a few things and were ready to go again!
We ordered pizza and played with every toy in their house, and made a huge pallet of nap mats and sleeping bags in their playroom. 
 Pretty much every picture looks like this... 
...lots of movement and lots of smiles. It is so worth it and just a blast. 
We turned out the lights and put on Tangled and before long, they were all out.

After the holidays and being out of town for like the first 2 weeks of baby shea's life, we couldn't get over to see her fast enough. We booked it to McKinney as soon as we could and spent the afternoon playing and cuddling that sweet angel.

 These two are twins...
 This much fun. 
 They had endless amounts of plays and puppet shows and are always so sad to leave. 
Luckily, Ty and I got to see Kris and Baby Shea again that week at a fun play date with some high school friends. We met at Liz's and got to see her and Alli and Meredith, McKenna and Levi too. It was such a dream and so easy for us all to meet there. I hope we do it again and again. Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled 
 Ty could not get enough of baby is so cute how obsessed he is with babies these days.

Then Sunday, Kinley wanted to sit in church with me and I was excited to have her there since Ben was out of town. 
 She is getting so big!
 That afternoon, we got to see the Barstads again at Honey and Minnie's house. It is so fun our mom's still live next door and we can now plan play dates with our kids in the houses we grew up in.
 I love it so much.

 We have also been getting in some fun neighbor time. 
 These two girls are just attached at the hip. If they go more than a day without some one-on-one time...they get the itch and we can't stop hearing about it.

 And Rachel came over with sweet baby Cooper and I could just eat him up. 
 He is so, so cute!
