Back at it!

Well, It's been a VERY long time since I've posted. Today I will attempt to restart this blog. Gage is now 11 and in 6th grade. He even has his first girlfriend!!! Olivia is now 9 and in the 3rd grade. Thankfully no boyfriend yet, but wow is she growing. Eman is 4 and CRAZY!!! It is hard to keep up with him all the time. I will try to post some pictures soon and keep up on this a little better.

A very busy month!!

This last month has been a little crazy. I won't even begin to tell you all the happenings in our family. A few bright spots included the planting of a new tree. It's a little hard to see, but it is right in front of the spade that Ms Olivia is holding. Olivia is learning about the environement at Daisy's and they gave every girl a sappling to plant. I hope this little tree makes it through the winter.
We went camping at Papa's house. The kids had a blast riding the four wheeler. Corey considered letting Olivia drive, with Gage on the back, but we all convinced him it wasn't such a good idea. Shortly after this picture was taken Corey got on the back and Olivia floored it. Good thing Corey acted quickly or they would have driven right into the side of the garage at full speed. Everyone had a blast.

We spent some time at Gage's soccer tourney in Waterville. Aunt Renee, Uncle James and Craig made an appearance. Ethan loved playing with Aunt Renee.

Craig loved coloring in his Sesame Street coloring book. What a big boy!!

Finally, a look at my big guy. I love and hate this photo. I think he is cute, but looking way to old with his pre-teen hair cut and ipod. Wow, they grow so quick!!!!!

Happy Birthday Princess Olivia!!!

Olivia Ruth turned 7 this month. We celebrated this wonderful day by having a bowling princess party. Olivia was very excited to invite her little friends to a party. This was her first non-family party. Here we have a picture of a few of the princesses. Ashley, McKenna, Olivia and Breanne. Prince Gage showed his smiling face as well. A few Princesses had already left, and Ian and Ethan didn't seem to care to be in the picture. They all had a great time. There was bowling and dancing. Each of the girls took turns dancing in the fancy lights.

For her Birthday Olivia wanted breakfast in bed. Of course she wanted it in MY bed. Gage and Ethan helped to make her cereal, chocolate milk, strawberries and yogurt. She must have been hungry because she scoffed it all up (with a little help from Ethan).

She had a few presents to open that morning. Papa and Auntie Sandy sent her packages in the mail which she was so excited about. She got an American Girl doll from Mommy and Daddy. She has brown curly hair and green eyes, just like Olivia. And her name is Ruthie. Olivia has loved fixing her hair EVERY morning. Gage has also been caught playing with the baby, and Ethan just wants to know where his baby is.
I am still having a hard time believing that my precious little girl is 7 years old. I hope she will slow down a little bit, and wait for momma to be ready (do you think that will ever happen?)
