I can't believe that my last post was in February! I can't believe that it is almost Christmas! I can't believe it is almost the end of the year! I can't believe that my kids are 14, 12, 4 and 3! I can't believe we will celebrate our 6th anniversary in a month! I can't believe I actually might have a house to call HOME!!

LOVE this hat!

It is amazing how kids change so much in a year. Both Sam and Emma are potty trained. This process went SO smoothly for both of them, I still scratch my head sometimes. I was terrified that Emma was going to take forever, but she was actually a little quicker than what Sam was. We tried with Emma about 10 months ago, but she would freak out when we tried to put her on either the big or little potty chair. So we stopped that for a while and in October we tried again and it was about 3 weeks that she was fully trained. Sam was about a month. Neither of them have had many accidents. Sam has never woken up wet or dirty from naptime or in the morning. Emma has wet the bed twice which isn't bad at all. Just another small way God blesses me:)

Hopefully I can get into the swing of posting more frequently. My kids are growing up so fast and I want to document that and some of the funny things they say and do before I forget it all! And I have forgotten alot already :(

My Heart Melts...

Sam to Emma--

"Don't cry sweetheart, here is your bear."

Excuse me, I need to go get my kleenex.

Winter Fun

These were taken back in December.  My dad had taken Sam for a ride around the yard on the snowmobile.  We asked him how he liked it.  His reply?  "It's awesome!"

"I wash hands!!"

No Sam, I am afraid that "washing hands" in the toilet does not count.  Need I say more?

Happy New Year!

I know it has been ridiculously long since I posted, but a new post will come soon. It has been crazy busy with moving and starting a new job, chasing after 2 kids and you know how the rest if it goes!

God Bless,

Worthy Cause

Our friends Matt and Jamie Wallace, who lost their daughter Nevaeh back in April, have come up with a beautiful way to honor her and keep her memory alive.

Playroom of Hope is a room that is in the new building at Children's Hospital. It is currently being used as offices but as soon as the money is raised, it will be turned into a room for the kids in the hospital and their siblings to go and hang out. Please consider giving to this most worthy cause.

Remember them in your prayers as well. They do have a CaringBridge Website that Matt continues to update to help in the healing process.

Thank you,

The Next Ancil Adams? Or Mr. Mom?

Sam got a hold of my mother-in-law's camera. At first he was just pretending to take pictures, complete with the clicking sounds. Then he figured out how to turn it on, pop the flash and then he snapped a few pictures. He also got a hold of our point and shoot camera and took a few self portraits.

He also likes to "gack-yoom", aka vacuum. And he likes to use various items to vacuum.

As you can see, he can also multi-task. Gotta start them young!
