Putting up the Tree


One of my favorite days of the year is putting up the Christmas tree! I love it. 
 Rex's glasses are in the shop getting new lenses, so he's without them for a few days.
All the kids have had Fifth's Disease over the last few weeks. It is Tyler's turn to have the super red cheeks.
 Abraham is missing so many teeth! Such a gap toothed smile. 
 Christmas, here we come!



We had a fairly warm day the other week, so we went outside to rake leaves. Ken and I were testing out the sports setting on the camera and got some fun action shots. 

Sweet Baby Girl


Nothing like a sweet, clean little baby, fresh from the tub!

Happy Halloween


Happy Halloween from Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmama, The Three Little Pigs, and the Big Bad Wolf.
 I love how completely unfazed Annemarie is in this picture. You can't tell from the pictures, but I had watched YouTube and had on some old lady make up. It was so funny, people didn't even recognize me!
 Ken's costume was amazing, the pictures don't do it justice.

Abraham is 7!


Abraham turned 7! 

 He wanted an Angry Birds cake. I had much more elaborate plans in my mind, but this is what he got. 

 Seriously, the best face ever!
 I just love how excited he is about his cake. 

 Annemarie had no trouble remembering how to eat cake from her birthday a month before. 
These are out of order, but Ken and I went and had lunch with Abraham at school. He got to choose one special friend to come eat on the stage with us. 
(note the mysterious disappearing hand)

Happy Birthday Abraham!!! We love you. 

Pumpkin Patch


My kids begged me for days to go to a pumpkin patch. I'm not sure where they got the idea from, since it is something we've never done before. Anyway, we found a little pumpkin stand not far from the house and took the kids. They loved it. Rex told everyone we met for days that he'd gone to the pumpkin patch. 

 This is the best of about a dozen tries to take this picture. I guess you take what you can get.
