Mother's Day

This year for Mother's Day Addison and Caroline were old enough to paint cards for all the Grandma's that they have. Here they are hard at work. Both of them did a great job but Caroline really had a good time.

After church we went to lunch at Hackney's with my whole family on the my dad's side.  I love getting together with all my aunt/uncles and cousins.  It is so fun that as we welcome spouses and kids that this group just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  After lunch we went to my grandparents house to just hang out with each other.  I love being there with my family at their house.  It makes me think of when I was growing up and we would spend almost every Sunday there playing with our cousins after church.  Their house is such a special place to me.  It was a great Mother's Day spent with family, Scott and my 2 beautiful daughters :)

Apparently this is becoming a tradition because here is Caroline in the same cradle when she was 3 weeks old.

Naomi is just so darn cute!

Fun in the backyard

Attempting various groupings of sister and cousin pictures.  These next few I love the expression on Sonja's face.

Caroline was not so happy about the cousin pictures

Gwen is such a great and loving big sister.  Well, we already knew that.

Johnson family of 5 :)

Sonja and Nolan.  They actually stayed like this for a little bit

Fun Times

Some randoms...

Addison climbed up in the chair at church and Emmett decided to join her. At first Addison was not happy about it but she eventually calmed down.

Then Caroline joined her.

The other day I heard some giggling coming from the play area.  I came around the corner and saw their feet hanging out of the bookshelf.

They were pulling themselves to the back of the bookshelf cubbies, looking at each other and laughing.  They would then scoot back, drop back to the floor, look at each other and do it again.  It is really funny to watch them do this.

More fun times at the zoo.  This time we went with Elsa.  It was a lot of fun and nice to have an extra pair of hands and eyes.

This was the first time I have seen a peacock with the feathers out like this!!  It was so beautiful and definitely the highlight of this zoo trip.

Naomi Linnea Johnson!!!

Naomi Linnea Johnson is here!! She was born Saturday night at 8:31pm and weighed 7 pounds, 10 ounces. She is just adorable.  Congrats to Cam, Linnea and big sisters Gwen and Sonja!!!

We were able to go meet her Sunday afternoon when Addison and Caroline were taking their naps.  When we got there Gwen was looking very happy holding her new baby sister.  She loves Naomi!!

Gwen was very excited and made sure all of us noticed when Naomi was holding onto her finger.  So cute :)

Love her!!!  She was so light.  I can't even believe our girls were a few pounds lighter than her.  Crazy

Happy Mormor and Grandpa

Scott holding Naomi.  This would not have happened if we did not have kids of our own :)  He is a pro now!

I think everyone has agreed that she looked like Sonja with Gwen's coloring.


She is just too cute.  So far she has blue eyes and I would expect them to stay blue.

Can't wait to introduce Addison and Caroline to their new baby cousin!!  So far they love looking at the pictures of her :)
