6 Years in the Making!

We finally got our family pictures taken!!
Our family portrait that is hangning above our fireplace contains
3 children...a 5 year old connor, a 3 year old Mikaela and a 5 month old Aubrie!!
And Matt and I look so young in it, I often wonder
who that cute family is hanging on our wall!
Our awesome photographer took at least 1 million pics,
so bear with me as I post the best ones
(of which there are many!...except the ones that have me in them!)

This is Matt's entire family...we actually doubled in size
since our last group photo!!

And these are the cute grandkids!

Too Much Time on my Hands!!

Apparently my house isn't dirty enough
to get me out of the computer chair...
OK - that's not true. My house is dirty enough,
I just don't wanna clean!

Anyway, I had some fun on today
and here are the fruits of my not so necessary labors!

don't you just love that face?!

My Little Sweeper!

What would I do without her?
I guess I wouldn't have anything to post about!
Emma saw me sweeping the kitchen floor and decided I needed her help.
So she went into the laundry room where we keep the brooms and got her own.
I think she's a genious child.
Whoever thought a paint brush could be used as a broom?!
What a great little helper!

I thought Connor could use a little face time on the blog,
so here are some pics of him getting his Arrow of Light in Boy Scouts.
Way to go, Connor!! We are so proud of you!!

And, Hallelujah!
He finally let me cut his hair!
He has been growing it out for a while, so he could wear it
like all those boys on Disney channel, etc.
Matt and I weren't very fond of it.
I wasn't willing to blow dry it or flat iron it, so it was just shaggy all the time!
I would often remind him lovingly that I know how to cut hair
and would be happy to cut it for him when he was ready.
They are getting school pictures taken tomorrow and
I used this as an opportunity to ambush him.
I said, "I will have this picture of you forever! Can we please cut your hair
and then you can grow it out again if you want?"
Well, on Sunday he asked me to cut it before church.
I couldn't grab the scissors fast enough!
We're thrilled to see his handsome face again!
(and I'm sure he'd love to hear from all of you how much better he looks...)

More Halloween!

Connor and Mikaela had
BIGGER and BETTER things to do
on Halloween night than to stay and pose for pics.
There was candy to be gotten, for heaven's sake,
and they weren't wasting any time!
So...we have pictures of the 3 youngest and that's it!
The school took pictures, so when I get those, I'll post Connor and Mikaela.
Until then, introducing...
The One and Only...
