I know its been forever. So i am going to start with the new family pics we had taken a while back. I love them! Thanks Michelle. You did awesome. we would love to see the not so good ones, if you still have them saved.

I like this one, because it is how the kids always look
if we are hugging or kissing.

us having a little fun

Cori-13 years old

Austin 4 years old

Sydney age 10 (in a week)

Logan age 5
Kathryn 11 years old

Tanner-age 8 oh and by the way-
this is a miracle. He never smiles like this!

Gage age 2

something about this picture brings me
to tears. He is standing here against
the wall without assistance. this is a big
deal. at this point he has no balance,
so for him to achieve this even for just
a short time is wonderful. there is more to it,
but I'm not sure what at this point. maybe
it will come to me later-so far this is what I
feel... he is a blessing.
Heavenly Father loves him. He needs to have
this challenge right now. He is special. He has a
work to do. We are blessed to have him in
our family.
All the boys
The two boys

a little more
busting at the seams
I can't wait to get these hanging on my wall!!
I feel so blessed to be a wife and a mom. very blessed indeed!
oh and our tribute to TWILIGHT!

My Haleigh is blogging with me and said, "MOM! THAT'S TANNER! He's in my class." she has an opinion about everyone in her class so I asked if he was nice and she said, "he is SUCH a good boy!" ;)
So there ya go.

Cute kids! Seeing Gage makes me cry too! (I wonder why?) I think Heavenly Father gave us the chosen ones!!! I don't think I would have the strength to keep smiling like they do!!! Plus, without them, I probably never would have met you. You are amazing Andi!!!! Love ya!!!
