Our Christmas Tree!

Where had the time gone? We are one of those late families this year. We got our tree last weekend. It was so cold!

Happy Lane, before he got to cold and was sad Lane.
All the kids took turns cutting down the tree.
And Carter
I love this time of the year!

It was a great Birthday!

My kids had a great birthday! This year we had a simple birthday but it turned out fun and not a lot of work. We went to McDonalds in Maple Valley so all the kids could play in the big toy. My kids got really spoiled, as usual!

Carter being a ham!

All the Birthday kids!
On Sunday we went to Clint's Mom's house to have another birthday dinner. It was great!

Uncle Matt helped the kids do their Gingerbread house. Thanks Matt. :)
Thank you everyone for making their birthday fun and full of love!

Happy Birthday X3!!

It feels like yesterday, but it has already been 8 years! I was scared, nervous and excited! I was about to deliver twin baby girls! I had nothing to worry about, They were 5 weeks early, Jordan was 6.9lbs and Mariah was 5.13lbs, They were Beautiful and Healthy. And we were blessed X2!
5 days before they arrived!

So tiny!

This is them at 2 years old

For Mariah and Jordan 2ND birthday, we gave them the best present ever! A new baby brother! Carter was born on their 2ND birthday!

He was such a good baby! The 4 of us could not love him more!
From day one Mariah and Jordan were little mothers to him. Looking back I remember being busy, but the thing I remember most is all the laughter and love that little babies bring into a home! I wish I could go back and live that time again, I don't want to forget the little things. They grow up so fast!!

Mariah, Jordan and Carter, Thank you for making us a family. You are our Joy! WE LOVE YOU! HAPPY 8Th and 6Th BIRTHDAY!!

Newborn at the Dentist!!

Yesterday, Our Newborn got his teeth cleaned at the dentist. I wasn't sure how he would do only being 2 years old, 6 months ago he let them look, but not touch. He changed so much. He let them do everything! I was so impressed. He kept saying, "She has tools like Daddy?" What a big boy!

He got 2 prizes and a backpack. He was the most excited about the new toothbrush and floss picks.:)

The Newborn is in the No Cavity Club....Probably the first newborn to join (most don't have teeth, lol).
Great job Buddy!

Update on Wrestling.....

Carter is still going strong....He had a tough week 2 weeks ago. He was in a group with 8 year old advance kids, he did good but he did lose. He got a metal though. So this past weekend he was discouraged, he had a hard time clearing his head and getting back in it. He did get one win! Here is Jared pumping him up...after he won!
Last weeks metal
Clint and Jared coaching him. He is so lucky to have the best coaches!
