Starting Fresh....perhaps

Well I stink at this...let's be honest.  My main motivation for getting on here again is to post our latest family pictures! HA!  So let's forget catching you up from 'last time,' let's just start fresh and I'll...inform you of the latest. :)
My family: sometimes I forget how happy they make me, ya know on "those" days, but these kiddos are such a joy!  They are sweet, smart and I'm so glad they are mine.


Drew turned 5 in August.  He is doing preschool and we just finished up the 6 week soccer program. I was his coach. hee hee  He loves and is very good at coloring. He loves doing boy stuff and helping mom in the kitchen.


Brynn is 3 1/2 and is good at it.  She has spunk for sure, but is a sweetheart!  She loves, loves playing with other but does well entertaining herself. She laughs loudly and squeals louder...yikes!  (Still trying to get a handle on that.) Currently, she loves to sneak up on us and say 'boo!' :) 


Austin will be 2 in January.  He is so funny!  He thinks he is way older than he is and has no problem keeping up with Drew and Brynn. He says quite a few words  and never stops moving.  He loves it when he can make his brother and sister laugh.

Andrew is my best friend!  He is working hard with his job  People keep reaching out and contacting him which is exciting. He is busy with a church leadership position as well as I am, so we are constantly learning how to juggle our time. I am doing the "Story Time" at the local library and have been having fun with that.  Although I taught 4th grade and enjoy that age, I have had fun interacting with these little ones. (18 months to 3 years)

We feel the Lord's blessings in our life daily!

Well, this blog has really taken the backseat.  Let's start with Austin.

September: This boy at 7.5 months pulled himself up!!  WHAT?  NOT YET!


This was actually Brynn's costume that she didn't wear.  
But Austin was a sport and let me put it on him.


 December: 11 months old and enjoying ripping up the presents!

January: Happy Birthday, Sweet Austin Mack! 

The day Adam arrived him from his mission in Thailand!

February: All of the grandkids! Mine are numbers 14, 15, 17. :) 

Feb. 19th Thankfully he waited longer that I thought he would between when he began pulling himself up and walking.

March 4th

Pictures of Brynn since August. She is still spunky, loud, funny and sweet!  She cries instantly if she sees that I have tears in my eyes or if she even thinks I may be crying. (Not that I do that a lot.) 

We went to Utah at the end of Feb. for Uncle Jamen's wedding!  We were trilled to see him get married and to have Kylee in our family now!

Drew has been learning a lot of stuff.  This is such a fun stage.  He can read 19 words, can write his own name, amongst other numbers and letters.  Oh and he LOVES anything to do with art!

We won this at a local raffle...thing.

Trying on ice skates...I really didn't think he would try it out on the ice, but he did!

 You have to have a bath picture!

Starting in March we began to finish our basement. It's still not quite done but so close.  I will SO enjoy the extra space.

In May Andrew's family came to visit and it was incredibly fun!  Drew and Charlie are 2 weeks apart and it didn't take long at all to warm up to each other and enjoy each other's company.

After May, there isn't too much exciting news to share.  Just trying to enjoy the beauties and blessings that surround us.  

This was earlier in the year but I was impressed with myself that I pushed the stroller AND lawn mower down from the house to the shop with a baby strapped to me.  No stopping this girl!

Happy Birthday to me! 

Celebrating our 6th Anniversary
