4th of July sparklers!  Tessa's first time!

19.  Dress Up - this might be a picture from Halloween or not...but someone who is all dressed up!

It doesn't need to be Halloween to dress up at our house.
Tessa was thrilled to put this assemble together...
a tutu, Packer shirt and DJ Lance (Yo Gabba Gabba) hat.  
what a fashionista!

When you catch your boys like this sleeping together you never want them to change.  NEVER.

24.  Just Because...So There! - share any picture(s) that you really want to share, but doesn't fit in any other category.
