Happy Birthday Blake!

One this day four years ago at 6:39p.m. teeny little 6lb.3oz. Blake William entered this world and stole my heart. I can’t believe that my baby is four years old. I told him that I couldn’t believe it this morning. He said to me all seriously and grown-up-like, “I know mom, because I don’t seem like your baby anymore.” I told him that he would ALWAYS be my baby! Happy birthday Blaker! ♥

BIG news!

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care…..yep, that’s right, all THREE of them! Ryan and I are excited to announce that baby #3 will be joining our family in June!

Thankgiving with sister

Mary and Shawn were able to come home from Denver for Thanksgiving!  It was great to have them home for the weekend.  We are sad that they cannot come back to Michigan for Christmas though :(.
Mary and dad with the turkey. 

I wanted a nice picture of Blake with his aunt can see how that was working out for me...
 This one wouldn't be too bad if Blake was smiling...
 This is what happened when I asked Liv to get in the picture too....story of my life...ha.

Winter fun

This is our first full winter in our new home...and the home has an added bonus....a sledding hill right in the back yard!!  These pictures were taken in November after the 1st snowfall.  We since have gotten a better base for sledding!!
Little Liv checking out the hill...
My Blaker...the hill is pretty big...and fast!

Daddy and Liv ready to head down!!

My boys :)

Blake isn't sure about going can see by the snow on his hat that he did a face-plant, or two!! ha. the bottom of the hill!

 If only we didn't have to walk back UP the hill!!

Blake is so proud of his snowman....first one of the season!

Where is the time going...

I am just sitting here planning a birthday party for my babies...I just cannot believe that in 2 short weeks I will have a 4 year old and a 2 year old! I love watching the grow up, and they are getting much easier...but it all just goes by SO fast.

Seems like we were just having a b0day party for their 3rd and 1st b-days!
On that same note...I cannot belie how long it has been since I blogged.  I have a little stock-pile of pictures and stories to I am hoping to get back into the swing of things soon!

I am seriously just dying over this last sneak peek from Miranda Parker from our Fall Family photos.
Would you just look at these precious babies?!
This picture makes my heard want to burst into a million pieces!
I just LOVE these babies so much!

Have you cake...and eat it too!!

The cake!
They had an in-suite reception at the Mandalay Bay resort.
So fun.
The cake was so good.
Almost like strawberry shortcake...yum!
There was no smashing.
Just nice cutting...and eating.

Fall Family Pictures

We had our fall family pictures taken by Miranda of Miranda Parker Photography last week.
We hadn't had family pictures taken since summer of 2011, so we were due for some updates!
Miranda posted two sneak peeks on facebook, and I am really happy with these and cannot wait to see the rest!
Its funny the difference a year makes when it comes to photographing the kids.  Last year Blake hated it...this year he was a ham.  Last year Liv was an angel...this year, not so much!  Hm, oh well!!
Our Little Family!

LOVE how happy the kids are here...this totally captures their crazy personalities. 
Look at the faces...ahh!!

More to come soon!!

Favorite part...

All in all, I think that Liv's favorite part of her very 1st field trip...was the BUS RIDE!!
She was giddy with excitement.  I think that the feeling of freedom of NOT being in a car seat was crazy for me (and I have to admit...I was feeling a little crazy myself...crazy anxious.  No car seat, ugh!!)

Me and my girl on the bus :)

The PERFECT pumpkin...

Liv was on a mission to pick the perfect pumpkin.
in her mind perfect = biggest pumpkin in the patch.
I had to convince her that she probably didn't need a pumpkin that was bigger than her :)
On a mission:

"SOOO heavy mama!!"
She had her sights set on this huge one here...but she did eventually change her mind!
