Happy Fall Y'all

Another Halloween has come and gone. I truly love this time of year, the smells, the scenes, the food, and the chill in the air. Hope you enjoy these pictures of our little rascals!

Sunday, July 5, 2009


Because July is a big month in our family, I thought I would begin by posting our latest ameteur family photo. This is the best I could do. It is hard to get four kids to both look at the camera and smile simutaneoulsy.

We are vacationing in Florida next week, and will have family visiting soon afterwards. Also, three out of the six of us are celebrating birthdays all in one week's time, so be on the lookout for some serious July updates. Love to you all!

Happy 4th Birthday Dylan!

Our sweet/mischievous Dylan turned 4 last month. I am pretty late in posting the celebrations, but Dylan understands. Late is just how we roll these days! We had a balloon and magic show party at our house with his friends and later went to O'Charley's for dinner. Great times! Love you tons Dylan!

Birthday Celebrations

So we finally got around to celebrating our poor, neglected fourth child's birthday. We were only two days late, which just proves the fact that lately, we are busy people. However, Timothy wasn't disappointed. Between the yummy cake and presents, we certainly made it up to him. He looks pretty pleased to me. What do you think?

Happy Birthday Timothy

As You Turn One

Time flies fast when you’re nearing one,
So much to learn, so much fun.
Peek-a-boo, learning to talk,
Eating it all, learning to walk.
Loving to laugh and giggle and play,
Enjoying every moment of every day.
But while you innocently watch each day go by,
You’re unaware of the sighs we sigh . . .
For you’re growing up too fast for us.
We’ve seen it before and we know you must.
Soon you’ll be two, then three, then ten,
And we’ll look at you and wonder and say, “When?”
When did he grow up? How can this be?
Wasn’t it yesterday he looked up at me . . .
And reached for my arms . . .
And smiled that sweet smile . . .
And we prayed,
“Keep him little for still a little while.”

Just arrived!

Proud Parents

All cleaned up

Go No. 2!

Our Cub Scout Pack had it's annual Pinewood Derby on Wednesday night. Jonathan insisted on designing his car to look like a No. 2 pencil. With a lot of help from dad and the midnight hour, it came out so AWESOME! He did all the painting himself, and I helped with the weights. Overall he had a great race, coming in the top 4, which qualifies him for the district Pinewood Derby. I hear those are pretty brutal, filled with "Derby Dads" (you know, kind of like Pageant Moms). We'll probably skip that event, and just call the whole thing worth it!

Home Renovations

It has become apparently clear to us that having four children requires a lot of extras, not only mentally and emotionally, but physically. This is why we have decided to convert one of the attic spaces into a bedroom and bathroom. Emily is the lucky recipient of this new space because, let's face it, girls need their own bathroom. Also, once being an adolescent girl, which Emily will soon be, I would have loved a space to call my own and to hide all my "girly" paraphernalia. Hopefully the renovations will be finished by summer. We'll keep you posted.

What is He Thinking?

Whenever it warms up outside I too get the urge to strip down to the bare essentials - underwear and shoes. Dylan apparently has grasped this concept as well. It usually does not end well when a mother finds a trail of clothes leading to a partially dressed little boy swinging on the playset and collecting the mail. But, in this case I just laughed and grabbed the camera. Kids are clueless and I love it!

We're Back

After a long vacation from the blogging world, I am happy to say that we are back. I'd like to say that posting comes as easily as being a mother of four, but let's be honest, it is just as hard and time consuming. To summarize, I will try harder to keep you updated on our family. In the meantime, enjoy the pictures of our wonderful Christmas holiday. Love to you all!
