Whew...what a crazy weekend. This particular weekend was filled with baby showers, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. This summer is just flying by and it's not slowing down anytime soon. We are busy with baby showers, wedding showers, weddings, a few weekends planned to Winthrop, Chelan and Walla Walla (for Leonetti wine tasting...CAN"T wait for that), oh, and the Nordstrom sale!
On Thursday, the twinnies and I hit the road and stopped by to visit Heather and play at the park, where Cash managed to get his first fat/bloody lip, then Friday, had to get gifts and outfits for all the weddings, and luckily got to sneak out after the kiddos were asleep (gma babysat, no, I didn't leave them alone) to go see The Hangover with the hubby and Austin and Julie..which is by far the funniest movie EVER!!!
On Saturday, we celebrated the soon-to-be arrival of baby Miller (no name yet) and showered Carrie with lots of gifts!! Lauren hosted it at her beautiful and perfect home...I was quite jealous of the clean (very clean) and clutter free (very clutter free) home....and Bergen and I helped with decorations and food. We had a great turnout and Carrie got some really good stuff!!!All the pretty gifts!

Me, Carrie, Lauren and Bergen

Diaper Cake. I made this, it was my first one. I think I did a good job!!

We totally lucked out on the weather, it was BEAUTIFUL out!!
So, while I was away, Travis hung out with the babies with Grandma and Grandpa Kerber. They went to the park at St. Edwards and had sooo much fun. After the shower I met up with them to have dinner.

Cashy and daddy....two of the most handsome boys EVER!

Grandpa and Presley

After the golfers were done, we let them loose!! They had soooooo much fun running around!

Cash is obsessed with rakes, bats, golf clubs and all balls....i think daddy and grandpa are rooting for either a future Tiger Woods or a baseball player......He's actually very cordinated for a 17 month old, something he obviously does not take from me!!!!

Presley's new shades!

Another Bun in the Oven!!

Haha....you probably thought with the title, I might have another bun in the oven...nope. However, I feel like everywhere I turn, everyone is having babies. Even when I turn on the television, 16 and Pregnant on MTV, 2 of the New Jersey Housewives are preggo, SJP just had surrogate twins, the special on ABC last night about teen pregnancy, and just about every blog I go to is all about babies. I have 4 baby showers to go to and I just made a diaper cake ( and used the cutest newborn pampers that used to be so HUGE on the twinnies).

So with that....i had a dream last night. You know those dreams that are so real, you wake up and for a second you really think it's true? Last night I dreamt I had a little girl. It was sooooo real. I was in the hospital and Travis and I couldn't think of a name and then we named her Everly Grace. Random, I know. A few months before all this, I had the same dream, but I had a boy, Cruz James. Weird.

I think it's in my cards to have twins again...seriously. I have a feeling that I am going to have another set of twins, a boy and a girl. Everyly and Cruz.....(those probably won't be the names, but just used as example). So, as those who know me well, know I am a true believer in my pencil test. I randomly pull it out (actually, not randomly, mostly on every girl I've ever met) and today I did it to myself. When I was pregnant with Cash and Presley, it told me I was have b/g twins. Today when I did it, it did twins b/g (of course, I already have Presley and Cash), then it did it again!!!!!!!! Boy/Girl twins again!!!!!! Very unlikely, but you never know......OMG.

Ali's BIG 3-0!

My bestie Alison turned the big 3-0 a few weeks back, so of course, we celebrated. However, the way we used to celebrate is quite different how we celebrated this year or the past few years.....We went to Uni Sake House in Seattle and had the BEST sushi!! It was delicious and we kept eating and eating and eating, well...that was Travis. Alison finally left little CarterBug at home with Gma and we had a fun!! Me, Ali and Shannon (whom just had a baby Jameson a few months back)
Alison and her hubby Eric.

Me and Ali.
I can't believe we are 30 and mom's now, who'd of thought??? I love you and you are the bestest friend a girl can ask for!!

Funny boy.

Little Mr. wanted to try out his new goggles. He's such a cutie, even in goggles. He just melts my heart. So cute.

Hooray for Piggies....

The two most perfect pair of piggies I have every seen....
Notice the bags of fruit snacks in her hands...yep, I had to bribe her to sit still so I could use a comb for her piggies. Usually for just a pony it takes 2 seconds and I have it down where I can do while she walks. Piggies take a little more work.

Is it bad to already bride my 16 month old w/junk food??? Hopefully this doesn't escalate.....


Aside from the fact that they are constantly bickering, biting, pushing, shoving and hitting each other (yes, ALREADY!) we get the moments when they are affectionate......usually it's after they hit one another.
Aren't they the cutest little pair of twinnies??

BTW...just imagine that they were BOTH in my belly...it still amazes me.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to the BEST dad in the entire world! Cash and Presley are the luckiest babies because they have you for a daddy!
You are the hardest worker and make it possible for me to stay at home and that is greatest gift. You get up with the kids in the morning, so I can get an extra hour of sleep. You help change lots (and I mean lots) of diapers. You are the best and we love you!
Thanks for being such a good dad!
xoxo, Katie, Cash, Presley, Lily and Lucy.

Dinner w/Family

We went to dinner w/Travis's family this week. Presley says, "Cheese"!
Cash and Auntie Audrey! Audrey is such a good aunt and the twins just love her and her boys. Travis comes from a huge family.....6 sisters and a brother, so 8 kids total! I got lucky w/the best in-laws ever!!

They had just waken up and they love to sit together and eat out of their snack packs. It's so cute. I found them in their playroom, sitting on the chair together.
They are already besties.... When Presley says, "Cheese", she squints her eyes.....She's got some serious bed head!!!


Messy babes....They love to feed themselves yogurt, applesauce, cereal, and ice cream. Sooo messy, but sooo cute!!! Such big kiddos.

A Day at the Aquarium!

We spent Saturday afternoon at the Seattle Aquarium and down on the pier. It was such a beautiful day and the twinnies had sooooo much fun!!!
We had to go around the carousel twice. The first time, Presley was screaming because she didn't want to get off. Then we had to go again. She had a smile on her face the whole time! I think she might be a future pony rider.
Cash loved anything he could put his hands in. He was actually getting frustrated because he couldn't get his feet in also.

Cash was a handful, to say the least. Note to self...before I go again, must buy leash for Cash. He's a terror. I had a man come up to me and told me that he thought Cash would make a great future running back, since he's so good at weaving through crowds at full speed. I can see that!!

She LOVED the exhibits and had to point and look at everything!

After, we had to get some fish 'n chips. Presley LOVES food and she was such a good little eater. She actually likes fish.

Cash doesn't like fish, but he loves french fries. His favorite is tarter sauce to dip his fries. He actually dips his fingers in, then licks them....gross.

i went to get a drink the other day and as soon as it was handed to me at the drive through, the little kiddos starting screaming bc they wanted some also. i couldn't really give them sips of my highly caffinated beverage, so they opted for a strawberry creme frapp. Then, they couldn't share it, so they each needed their own seperate cup. Presley wouldn't let go of it, so she brought it into the bathtub with her. Too funny!

Grad Party

Our nephew, Ben, graduated from Ellensburg High School on Thursday, so we celebrated.

Haircut #3

My little Cash man got a haircut. He's such a handsome boy!

1st Haircut.

It was finally time to do a little trim. Presley was such a little trooper. I didn't know it was possible for her to become cuter....

She's such a little lady!
