Merry Christmas 2014

Needless to say, they are really excited!

The Christmas PJs are on.

Christmas cookies have been consumed.

Visions of Sugarplums are now dancing in their heads.

Stockings are ready.

The gifts are under Daddy's massive Clark Griswold tree.

Merry Christmas friends!

10 months and 15 months

Baby E is 10 months.

Baby D is 15 months.

It is so hard to get a picture of both of them.  They are just way too busy to slow down.  Their Daddy had to help me by holding them.

My plan was to get an adorable picture of them on their new baby bikes.  They love them.  Can't you tell?

 We have a photo up with all 8 of us!

Baby E is almost 10 months so this has been a long time coming.

We got photos done when he was first born but I never got them printed for the wall.

I've been a little busy.

What a difference two years can make!




I also replaced the canvas of EJ"s side of the family.  I was excited to have the babies in the picture but sad to say goodbye to the picture of Grandma.  She is at home with Jesus now.

A little late there Sis

Family photographs are tricky.

There is always at least one child who refuses to smile.

It is usually the 2 year old.

This year it was Miss Ruthie's turn.

Her Auntie deemed it the "year of the grumpy princess."

She was no fun.

Today I got the big print of our family picture.

She looked at it and said, "Mommy, next time I will smile."

Then she decided to practice.

"See, Mom, I was sad right there."

Just look at this precious girl.

This sweet smile would have been lovely in our photo.

Q lost his first tooth!

Someone is sporting a brand new smile!

That's right!  This 4 year old lost his first tooth.

He was so proud to collect his $1 reward from Daddy!

You are growing up Mr. Q!  
This new smile looks great on you!

B's 9th Birthday

Happy Birthday B man!

Lego sets make this guy happy.

We are so proud to be his parents.  We thank God for giving us such a precious gift.  It has been a joy to watch him grow and change.  It is hard to believe that he is 9 years old. It took my breath away when I realized that we are half way through his growing up years.  Be still my heart.
