Noah's awesome header goal in last weeks travel game

This is Noah's awesome header goal in his travel soccer game last week. It is great to watch him get better and better in his sports of choice. He looooves baseball and soccer and, putting aside parental bias, he is pretty darn good! I don't know who likes the soccer and baseball games more? The parents or the kid??? :-)

Great kids - part 4

Ok, I am a couple of days behind posting our #4. What can I say about this little guy? He has such a HUGE personality!!! How couldn't he? He constantly watches and learns from his other 3 brothers. Right now, we call him the kissing bandit. All he does is kiss your cheek, ear, nose, you name it! Such a lovable kid. Hope he stays that way! BTW, is there nothing more beautiful than a sleeping beauty??

Great kids - part 3

Great kid #3. What can I say about this one? He is the spunkiest one, sometimes funniest one, craziest one, etc......He's also our only one with blue eyes. Such a cutie. We all have one, right? He is very lovable, caring, and nuts!! Love him too!! (You are probably wondering, why is she writing about her kids? Well, right now, I don't have anything else to post, and it has been awhile since I have, so I chose a subject very special to me, our kids!! )

Great kids - part 2

Here is my #2 child. He is such a good little kid. He follows rules to a T and has such good manners!! We are so lucky to have him in our lives. Here is a picture of him from his uncle's wedding last year. Doesn't he look handsome? I know, again I am biased!!

Great kids

Everyday I am so thankful for my beautiful children. God has definitely blessed us with great children. This one, the oldest, has such an intellect and he is so so smart - I envy his natural ability for learning new things and his desire to conquer new things! This is one of my favorite pics of him. Isn't he beautiful? Yes, I am biased.... :)

Birthday flowers!

So, if any of you really know me, I do not like birthdays! My birthday was yesterday, and I am one more year closer to the dreaded milestone. Gulp. But I was pleasantly surprised yesterday as I came home from dropping my kindergartner off to school. A rather large box was on the front porch stoop. My new sister in law (who is such a warm, sweet, and thoughtful person) always seems to remember our family's birthdays. Having her in the family has really brightened up our lives! We are truly lucky to have her in our lives. Here is a picture of my beautiful live hydrangea plant in a pretty pot! Thanks Rach!

#3s birthday cookies!

My awesome brother and sister in law sent my #3 child yummy cookies for his birthday. The cookies were much too cute not to post!!!

Valentine flowers

I am not a very high maintenance person, and typically pride myself on this characteristic. But my wonderful husband surprised me this year with absolutely beautiful roses and lillies! Aren't they pretty? Thanks hus!

Check out this photo of R. It really does speak for itself....

Love of Wreaths

Everyone who really knows me knows that I have always been partial to a nice wreath. Here is a picture of our wreath on our front door. It looks pretty cool with the snow/ice on it!

Icy Frozen Day!

Over the past couple of days, we've had inches and inches of snow both before and after a freezing rain event. The outcome is both a beautiful scene outside and a scary mess for cars and people! Here are a few random pictures taken from inside the house of the scenery. A lot of the pictures are of the houses across the street! Please pardon the non-professional photos. It is hard getting good pictures from behind the glass!

J got this Santa hat at his school holiday party, and he LOVED wearing that hat for the holiday. He looked so darn cute, I just had to share it... If only they'd stay little and innocent....
