Lauren and her ABC's!

Lauren has been working on her ABC's since she was 3 and 1/2 years and we know them now! Our goal (well my goal) was to know them and be able to write them by 5...we made it with 9 days to spare! :) She has been very into them the last 2 months and working on them on her own. So proud of her! We will be starting Kindergarten in February...seeing how long the ABC's took, we might need a little more time for her 'first' official year of school.
Way to go Lauren!!!

Chicago Thanksgiving weekend 2011!

Thanksgiving day we drove to Chicago (Dave was working in Milwaukee the following week), it was a long day, and we tried to make the most of the 2 full days we had there!

Lake Michigan (Holland/Zeeland Michigan) November 30, 2011

Lake Michigan with Big Red in the background!
Nothing like playing in the sand when it's only 35/40 degrees out!

Me and Bethany! longtime friends (since our Texas days), I was even in their wedding!
My 3 kids and her little boy.

We do look forward to going back when it's warm and can really have fun in the sand!

Granny! Dec 11, 2011

This is Dave's Granny and we all LOVE granny! We didn't seem to get any pics with any family members at Dave's Christmas....I can't believe I did that. But we did get a few with Granny the morning we left. She is such an amazing woman and we are so glad we have her in our lives. She is certainly a favorite of the kids too ;)

Christmas Morning...

Here are a few pics from Christmas morning, we all had such a wonderful day. We had the Barber's here with us and it was such a joy! Also sorry for the lack of posts over the last 4 months, my cards were messed up and so was our blogger account. Will try to be better now that things are back!

Santa visits...

We have the privilege of living next door to the town Santa...and he is very kind to come over after one of his MANY engagements and see our kids. This was the first year the kids really all liked it (well peter took a LONG time, but he did go) and this was also the first year after 3 years that Jackson said 'I think that may be Mr. Bob, but I am not sure'. Next year he will know! :)

Need to reach us?
