Christmas Cousins

White Christmas 2009

We lived the lyrics of "Let It Snow" on this Christmas Eve afternoon!
The frightful blizzard is going on outside in that bright window while Camden naps by the delightful fire!

Here's a picture of our backyard after all the snow.
You can see the snow goes up into the fireplace & has buried our landscape lights!
This window looked bad with the ice & snow forming around the window like the fake spray stuff :) and the drifts as high as that tree.

Christmas Program 2009

Josh was Santa Claus and was absolutely adorable!  Jake did well as a soldier too.  They both spoke plain and slow in the microphone.  It was wonderful!  I videod it so we can watch it for Christmas!  Just kidding :)!

Ehtan 2 Months Pics

Happy Birthday Ethan!

I posted more pics on my blog....

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Just wanted to let everyone know...
We are dedicating Ethan on Saturday 11/28 and my graduation is on 12/19. I truly do not expect any one to be at either... but I get in trouble for not telling you guys dates. We will take pictures and share.

Abby tested for her yellow belt and passed with flying colors! So proud of her!

Starting to train for a 5K! It would be fun for all the girls to do a race together!

2nd annual Mii Family Wii Bowling Tournament

Okay, Sisters, dust off your TROPHIES & start practicing because our bowling tournament is just 2 weeks & 2 days away! (I do expect the trophies to come back to be passed on to this year's winner to be proudly displayed for the year!)

Consider this your invitation to this year's Family Thanksgiving Dinner & Celebration at our house. I plan to start organizing the menu by email later this week. I hope everyone will help prepare the meal by bringing one thing & will share three NEW things that you are thankful for this year!

this will be the FIRST TIME that all NINE kiddos are together in one place. We are so blessed! What a perfect occasion for that to happen.

I can hardly wait!


My little cutie pie is growing sooo fast!

Cade would wear this Batman shirt EVERY day if I would let him!
Today he wanted me to take his picture in it. :)

Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween!

lost video

I don't know why these videos didn't upload to my computer before, but both Cade & I were laughing when we watched this video of Ethan & family's visit earlier this month.

While you can't really see this video, this was one night when Camden joined Cade's bedtime book reading. Cade read our favorite book, Snuggle Puppy, to Camden. awww...

Happy Halloween!

Sorry, the best video of Buzz was when I forgot you shouldn't shoot video sideways on my regular camera. You'll just have to watch with your head titled. :)

Happy 3rd Birthday to Cade

We started the day with cupcakes for breakfast.

Look at my cutie pie...three years old...I can't believe it!

We spent the morning at Dynamo Gymnastics' Play Zone.
Cade had a ball. Camden slept the entire 90 minutes.

We ate lunch at home & spent the afternoon playing with all Cade's toys & watching his newest favorite movie, Toy Story, again & again.

For dinner, we went to Chuck E. Cheese's.
Cade had a ball. Camden slept the entire time we were there.
(This is the same picture, but I thought it was funny to share!)
He is such a good baby!

Then we came home to sing Happy Birthday, blow out candles, & open presents.
Here's my cutie pie with his Toy Story ball.
He also got a Toy Story remote control car AND...
a REAL Buzz Lightyear!
(The camera batteries died before we got a picture of him, sorry!)

whew...what a day! and we still have his party to go...
See you all at our Circus Party!
