Hannah's First Haircut

These pictures make it look like it was a piece of cake. Katie will testify that it wasn't as easy as it looks! Hannah is my serious child who is skeptical of everything. She was definitely nervous, but once she got a sucker, she warmed up to the idea and then it wasn't too traumatic!!!

Snow Day!!!

We've had many snow days here in MI, but one night we went out and played while Dad shoveled the snow. We all had a blast! I wish I loved playing in the snow as much as the kids...then maybe we would do it more often!!! :)

Hangin' in SC

Yes, we are totally crazy...we took a 13 hour road trip with our kiddos to visit our AWESOME friends in South Carolina. We had an absolute blast and hope to do it again soon!!!

A Little Behind

Ok...blogger is totally making me CRAZY!!! I've tried to update my blog a million times and it will only allow me to write in blue underline above any of my I figure it out...I'll just add new pics and won't write anything above them. None of you really want to hear my rambling just want to see my cute kids, right???

Well...hope you enjoyed Christmas in February!!!

1 Year and 3 Days Ago...

our lives were changed FOREVER!!!!!

Last year at this time we were dealing with Rotavirus and poopy diapers and this year we are dealing with 2 year old and 1 year old tantrums, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!!!

You are such an AMAZING addition to our family. I never dreamed I would have such an adorable little girl. I'm glad God's plan for your life was to become a part of our family forever!!! You have such a sweet spirit. I love your snuggles and cuddles. I hope you are this cuddly forever!

Each day, you amaze me more and more with your strength and determination. I know you will grow up to be all that you can be and I'm so glad that I get to watch!!!

This year has been full of ups and downs, but what a wonderful year it has been!!! I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART, Bug!!!


Isn't she the most adorable thing you have ever seen??? We celebrated her forever family day by making our Gingerbread House. She loved every minute of it...especially eating it!!!

Is this a classic, or what? Only my crazy kiddos!!!

FALL OvErLoAd!!!

Ok...I know some of you are wondering...where have you been???'s been a rough few weeks and ALL five of us have been sick for a long time!!!

We have been having a FUN FALL in the midst of all of the sickness and her is a recap of all we've done. ENJOY!!!


Riding the hayride out to all of the fun

The corn maze was quite the hit!!! It will be much more fun when both girls can actually walk...or maybe run!

Hannah was scared of the goats, but warmed up to them quickly.

'Twas the Night Before Halloween

We have a pumpkin carving party each year with my family just before Halloween.

Here is Tessie checking out the pumpkins...

Crazy girl...loved licking them...YUCK!!!

One fun thing the younger kids did was paint craft pumpkins. They turned out so cute and are still sitting on my kitchen table. I thought it would be fun to do this each year, write the year on the bottom and save them.

My dad and his grandkids...PRECIOUS!

The Big of art.

Hannah started the day as a Princess. She wore her costume to therapy and was so cute!!!

I worked in Benjamin's class for the Halloween party. Can you say CRAZY?????

Here are the kiddos just before trick or treating...none of them felt good, but they still wanted to go!
Tessie the Bumblebee

Benjamin the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

And...Hannah...the miserably sick flower...but cute nonetheless!!!

Although we were still sick...the weather was beautiful, so I raked up some leaves and let the kids jump in the piles. WHAT FUN!!!!!

I love the look of wonder on Tessa's face.

Her first time in the sweet!

Well that about wraps up our Fall. The weather here is like Winter now...UGH!!! Can't believe it's so cold already!!! I'm not ready to be stuck inside, yet!!!
