Spring Pictures

This year you had all decided you were going to get Spring pictures at school.  They had better backgrounds you said. Well, your dad and I had already paid for Fall pictures and we compromised that if you wanted Spring pictures, you would have to pay for half.   To our surprise all three of you ponied up the money and totally took pride in your pictures by dressing up on picture day.

After school, Jaxon was the only one with his tie still on :) 

This was the first time any of you wore a tie and I was so surprised at how much you all really enjoyed dressing up and looking nice for your pictures.   You are such handsome dudes.  xoxo

Happy New Year! 2014

It is 2014!  We had our first New Year celebration with the five of us.  We had lots of food (jalapeno poppers, mozerella sticks, and pigs in a blanket.  Even the bacon Lucas requested, ha!) The plan was to go East coast style and get you all into bed after the ball dropped in New York City.  BUT the television wasn't showing the ball drop! So, after hoping they would show it at 10, and popping open our sparkling cider and party poppers, we realized it wasn't going to show then either. 
We hung out in the livingroom, the five of us and played Yatzee while listening to the top women artists. You boys heard some new songs and we had a good time all the way until it turned midnight in Las Vegas.  We jumped in the car and drove to the railroad tracks, getting a beautiful view of the fireworks. 
It was a wonderful start to a new year.  I love all four of you!
