Sterling's Airplane

This Christmas, my grandfather (Toto), made Sterling a very special present.  Since Sterling's room is done in Airplanes, Toto made him a one of a kind for his room.  It is stained glass and has a kaleidoscope inside of the plane itself.  This will certainly be going on a very high shelf and will be adored for many many years.  I am posting this video for my Toto to watch on his iPad... Isn't he cool? :)

Thank you so much Toto.  We love you!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!  We are so blessed by each one of our family and friends and cannot wait to see what the year 2013 holds in store for us.  Jesus loves you :)

Walden Pumpkin Farms 2012

We love to venture out to Walden Pumpkin Farms in the fall with our kids.  It has been something we look forward to each and every year!  Enjoy this years picture from our time there :)

Disney on ICE!

For Selah's birthday, Andrew and I got the whole family tickets to go and see Disney on ICE! Selah had an absolute blast! It was worth every penny we spent just seeing her face light up when Tinker bell came flying down from the ceiling onto the ice... Priceless. She squealed and giggled.. and Sterling screamed bloody murder. I ended up sitting outside with Sterling for 3/4ths of the show. AAAANNDD.. to top it off, he peed all down the front of me 30 minutes into the show. Good times. But overall it was a success :). Happy Birthday Selah Grace!
Lights, camera.. ACTION!

Selah turns two!

This October, my first born beauty turned two years old! Man, time is just flying on by! The theme was Elmo inspired. That little red monster has had a hold on my little one for two whole years. It was only fitting that he be at the party :). I worked hard to make every detail matter. We had a great time with family and friends! A big thank you to each of you that came out to the party!!

Elmo loves his Goldfish.. and so does Selah!

You can't see it in this picture, but we had bales of hay everywhere on the deck for extra seating.

Since Elmo loves to color, I designed Selah Grace several of her very own coloring sheets for the party.

two kids and a chair

Over the past year, I have taken pictures of the kids together in this little kid-sized leather chair we have.  It's so fun to see them grow in this chair.  Now, they no longer fit together in it.  These pictures were taken just a couple of months ago on a early fall day.  I just sat in front of them with my camera and told them to play.  This is what I captured...
