Big Sis

Meggie and Natey. Meg is such a wonderful big sister. She watches out for and entertains our little man with such love and care. She is patient with him and knows just what makes him laugh. He absolutely lights up every day when she gets home from school. He grins from ear to ear and shakes his hands and twists his feet in circles.

 This fall we had the goal of planting more trees on our lot to provide some screening and beauty. So Jason went big and we planted way too many (and way too big) trees.  But there is not much I love more than working on a project with everyone doing their part.

Our muscles on the crew- Andrew kept the trees happy and well watered. 

 Our big-lifter Tanner stayed by Jason's side the entire long day.

Some day we will look back and be grateful for all this work, but by the end of the day we were all spent. But a special thanks to Jason for spearheading the whole project!

The Life of our Party

Nathan learned to open cabinet doors.  He will sit here forever and just listen to the sound of the door slamming. This along with flipping the handles on his dresser to make noise is his new favorite pastime. 

 So of course his fans had to join him on the floor for a snack the next morning. Nathan you are so loved. Wherever you are, these three kids are too.

October Happenings

Nathan is growing and filling out the picture frame more
and more these days. He is still fascinated with his
own toes.

Serious Blues

Margaret is having fun with spelling and learning to read.
She is really getting used to kindergarten.

A good ending to a day. Nathan is getting more physical and does
not want to be left out.

Halloween 2012

 Our beat up British soccer player.

 Margaret changed at the last moment from an angel (which I thought was so cute) to a princess (also cute).  She was just excited to be wearing make-up.

Andrew has requested for several years now to be a black ghost-so no one could see him at night. This was pretty close and he loved it.

Our pea pod- very appropriate these days. So sweet!
