marin is two!

today is our sweet baby girl's second birthday! yea, marin! all morning coen kept saying, "i just can't believe it has been 2 years!" i agree. it has been going by so stupid fast. somedays i feel like i can't keep up, and other seem slow and steady. marin has become such a fun, silly, active little girl. we love every bit of her little self. 
such a little mama.

 
she is great at keeping herself busy. so very busy.
 
dressing up and showing off.


loves painting, and projects. anything her big brother does, she is game for. 

 
sweet and wild. gives her mama a heart attack on a regular basis.
 
 YOU are exactly what God knew we needed.
YOU came to us at the most perfect time.
YOU are loved.

 
happy birthday, baby girl.

fall break

in Hawaii the schools take a fall break. we start school a month earlier, so I guess that is the reason behind it. anyway, it was nice to have coen home with us for a week. we all missed the routine of school though, and the good news is that he was eager to go back! here is how we sent out week:
