Princess Kate

I am way overdue documenting Kate!  She is a riot and has so much personality!  She is three short months away from being THREE!! {enter sad face}.

She loves to wear, what she calls, Princess dresses.  And when I say love, I mean is obsessed!
Even got her best buddy to dress up with her!
It's a battle I am letting her win.  She sleeps in these dresses, goes to Target, the gym, library, you name it, she wears it!

Nanny calls this her "Gloria" dress! lol. This is on Valentines day.  She wore it to get frozen yogurt!

This was a compromise! I let her pick out bow and tutu, I picked out the rest.  School day!

This morning she woke up with a fever, but seemed to be feeling fine. Well, I had a personal training session at the gym, so I asked Justin if he could watch her since she had a fever.  He took her to Costco to get something for work and they came back with this dress.  I died! LOL.  It is my least favorite of her dresses, but he said this is his last little girl so she gets what she wants! haha!
She loves to wear purses and "go shopping to Target" lol.  She loves her babies and doing anything with Max and Claire!

She has been waking up early morning (b/t 4-6) but as soon as I get her and put her in my bed, she cuddles up and falls back to sleep.  She is a Mama's girl and I am loving every second of it!!

Great Wolf Lodge

Last week we took the family to Great Wolf Lodge for Max and Claire's birthday.  It was just the Fredrick five and it was so much fun.  We arrived around 3:00 on Tuesday and left about 3:00 on Wednesday.

I don't have too many pictures because we were in the water the whole time!

The big kids, Justin and I loved the rides.  Our favorite was the tornado.  It was so fast and so much fun.  I don't think I've seen Max as happy as he was at GWL! They also had a "lily pad" area as the kids called it.  They both enjoyed that and the wave pool as well!
The lifeguards were amazing.  They were like robots and never took their eyes off the water.

Kate LOVED the toddler area! She was content the whole time and loved the baby slides as well!

After playing for a few hours, we went for dinner and ice cream.

After ice cream we stopped by the arcade for more fun!  We have already decided we need to go back!  They have a fridge and microwave in your room so you can bring snacks and drinks.  Some of my friends have taken sandwiches and eaten most of their own food to save money.  We ate in the restaurant but next time we will just order a pizza and stay at the pool until it closes at 8.

The only other thing we will do different is take another adult or travel with more family.  Even though we all had a blast, we had to split up most of the time bc Kate couldn't go down the slides and wanted to stay in the baby pool the whole time.  We did get Claire to sit with her at a table with a snack while we rode one ride together at the end of the day.

Can't wait to go back!

My babies are SEVEN!

I blinked.  All of the sudden, my 5.13 and 6 lb babies are seven! The statement, "days go by so slow and years so fast" (or whatever it is) Is so true! Yesterday Max and Claire turned seven.  They are tracked out of school for the next three weeks so we had a fun day together.

I made their favorite muffins for breakfast...complete with a candle and singing "Happy Birthday"

Their big present this year is we are going to Great Wolf Lodge! But, for fun, we went to Target and Justice and they got to pick out something small.  Then we went to see Paddington 2.  It was really cute!
sidenote: They are both tall.  Max is a good three inches taller and it makes her look short! We go for their well visit next week and I'll have to update stats.  I'm guessing Max is still off the charts and Claire is in the 80%.

Justin came home early from work and we took them to Dave and Busters.  It's an arcade/restaurant.  We all had so much fun!

Happy New Year!

Happy 2018!!

Wasn't planning on posting, but I just set up my new computer.  I am the most excited bc my iCloud works again! Blogging/keeping up with the kids is a top goal for 2018!

Ringing in the new year with style!

Happy Holidays!

I'm so far behind on catching up with life and the kids -- I just decided to start from present!

I can't believe we are halfway through December.  November flew by!  We spent Thanksgiving at the beach with Grandpa and Grandma Fredrick, Darcy and Brad.  We watched a lot of football and had a few walks on the beach.

We were also able to take some family pictures :) I love how they turned out!

Sister Love!

My girls!

One of my favorite pictures with Grandma and Grandpa!
The Big Guy!

Fredrick Five

Aunt Darcy and Brad
Merry Christmas!

October Fun

This year has really flown by!  We have had really warm weather this month.  Perfect for pumpkin patches and trick or treating!

We went to a pumpkin patch with the Salzman's.  There was so much to do! My favorite was this humongous cow! The pictures just don't do him justice.

This kids could have cared less and were off running around...but not me! I hung around this guy for a while!

Claire and one of her best buds, Dylan.  They look 12!

Trying to get a group pic with six kids :)
And sadly, I still don't have my icloud fixed and the rest of the fun pics are on my phone. 

Halloween was amazing! Max was a ninja, Claire was Evie from Descendants, and Kate was SuperGirl (to go along with her buddy Ben who was SuperMan)
Our neighborhood goes BIG for Halloween!  There is a DJ that lives down the street and has disco lights going from 5:30-9. There are many houses that have adult treats as well :) My favorite was the marshmallow vodka pudding shots!

The Big Kids took off so quick I didn't get a chance to get good pics of them.  Lets just say they were in candy overload and are already looking forward to next year!

My football player and cheerleader!

This summer we signed Max up for flag football and Claire up for cheerleading.  We are doing it through the Pop Warner league and did not realize what we were getting in to!  They started in August and had conditioning for two weeks. It was M-F for two hours each night! Now we are down to two practices a week and a game on Saturday.

They have had a busy season and have really been enjoying it!

Originally, Claire was cheering for a different team, but a week before the season started, they switched them to cheer for Max's team! Makes it a lot easier on us!

When we play on our home field, they get to run through the Cougar tunnel! I think that's their favorite part!
