Happy Easter!

I wanted to take a few pictures of the kids before church on Sunday. Anyone who knows my sweet little Noah knows that he is VERY stubborn. He decided to have a moment and I wasn't about to entertain him, so Audrey and I went out and took some pictures. As you look at this precious, perfectly posed little girl, imagine a screaming boy standing behind me. It was sooooo much fun! I look at the picture now and laugh. I think Audrey liked the camera all to herself.

Finally Noah calmed down and decided to join the group. I just love these pictures.

My precious little angels!!!


Noah started soccer. We have to bring his chair so he has something to sit in while he's on the sidelines. REALLY kid????? He can't just stand with his team?? Action photos will soon follow!


Audrey was invited to a Fancy Nancy party. I think it about made her year!!!

She was so excited to get super fancy. I just love the pose!

Just havin fun!

Finn is so entertained when the kids act silly!

Well our Finnegan is mobile. I'm sure Audrey will be shortly missing some of her Barbie accessories and Holli will be finding them in his diaper. So here is a taste: Sorry for the narrator...he is on lots of allergy medication and forgot to get on the short bus this morning.

A Valentine Tradition

The kids love our family Valentine's dinner, but they love the dessert even more! Our traditional chocolate fondue with lots of yummy things to dip. A messy face, must mean a happy customer!

Chewing on washcloths

A favorite past time...

Our Brave Little Boy

On Tuesday Noah had a makeover!

It still breaks my heart because at this point he had no idea what was going to happen. We explained (on a 4 year old level) what was going to happen. When we were at the hospital we even tried to make a big deal about the red socks - his favorite color and the bed with wheels!

Now he's getting a little nervous.
I didn't even cry until he went around the corner.

Bryan and I started wondering if he was hearing us completely. We dismissed it for a while just thinking "he's a 4 year old boy, of course he's not going to listen to us." But you know that feeling you get when you know something's not right with your child? I think we both had it, so we made an appointment with the Doc. Sure enough, lots of fluid in his ears (he's never had an ear infection) and large tonsils and adenoids. WOW!!!! We have also had sleeping issues with him too....could those large tonsils and adenoids be waking him up at night??? It wasn't an easy decision to send our little boy to the operating room, but in the long run we are hoping this will help him in many different aspects.

Blueberries saved the day!!!

You know the kind of day when EVERYTHING goes wrong?? When you should have stayed in bed since you cost more money getting out of bed because everything you touched broke or was damaged? The kind of day when the only thing that went right was when the blueberries stayed in their little plastic container when all your groceries rolled around in your car??? Yeah...that was me the other day! The blueberries saved the day!!!

Audrey's Dance Recital

Audrey had her first dance recital in December. She was a Christmas tree and danced to the song "Oh, Christmas Tree." It was super fun to watch the girls on stage. Some stood there, some twirled a lot, and some just buried their face in their hands and cried. Audrey did a lot of twirling, but she wasn't shy on stage. I can't wait to see her spring recital!

She was in a funny mood when I was trying to take these pictures. I think she was just excited that she finally got to put on her costume and that she got to wear a little bit of makeup!
