Big brother loves his look alike!
She's such a beautiful, happy girl!
And then she rocked the hair bow at bedtime!!!

It's exhausting to be SO cute!

FINALLY, we are enjoying the outdoors with our girls! Recently, we purchased some adorable sunglasses for Allie, Norah and Olivia. Check it out...

I had to capture this might not happen too often that 3 pretty princesses fall asleep in each other's arms. Sucking thumbs, snuggled together in mom & dads bed! What a lovely Saturday morning in the Vetor house! (Left to Right: Norah, Olivia and Allie)

Gluten Free / Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ryan and I made GF / DF Chocolate Chip Cookies! I feel like he misses out on some of the good stuff because of his food allergies...but not this time!
A good friend gave us a Red Mill package of GF Chocolate Chip Cookie mix. We substitute regular butter with butter flavored Crisco (dairy free). The package says the batter will be dry...that's NO JOKE! I couldn't even make balls out of the dough. SO, here's the secret...add a 4 oz. container of cinnamon applesauce (or plain). It was just enough to make the dough look and taste like real cookie dough.
Not only were they enjoyed by our GF friends & family but even Nick and I enjoyed these delicious cookies!!!

Ryan's 1st year of T-Ball

The "Express" Team Dugout

Asst. Coach DAD & #8 Ryan
Ryan hits the ball...and then runs to get it! I guess that's how we do it at home!

Where did the past month go???

Gosh it's been a whole month since I last posted! And a lot has happened in Vetorville since late April! (Watch for multiple posts...ha ha!) Ryan's t-ball games kicked off...and mommy turned the big 3-0!!!
I celebrated my birthday with a girlfriend getaway to Put in Bay, OH! It was fabulous to say the least. Thanks Nat and Kristen for celebrating with me and making the weekend SO MUCH FUN. Lots of laughter and silly memories!

THEN, after my fantastic husband threw me a surprise 30th birthday party (a joint 30th with Kristen Gray). What a guy! He did an amazing job considering all the bumps and bruises that came along with trying to surprise ME!
