I will clearly never fully understand Mary's sacrifice to bring this loving baby to us all. But this Christmas I cherish the fact that I too am loving this precious baby boy of mine, sent to me fresh from our Heavenly Fathers arms. May all of you have a very Merry Christmas and cherish these precious moments.
A photographer friend and I got together to toss some new pose ideas around.....and really, what could be more fun than 4 hours of baby folding, wrapping, cuddling, and a few feedings in between when you come up with this!!! These picture turned out absolutely amazing, if I do say so myself!! So enjoy these yummy photos of my sweet baby Porter!!
We just recently went and got Hannah's hair cut. She looks SO BIG now!! She also got her ears pierced for her Birthday. If you look closely you can see those cute little sparkly balls on her tiny little lobs!!
I have been thinking lately how much I a-d-o-r-e you! I love how you follow me around. I love that you love to laugh and that you love to make others laugh. It just breaks my little heart at the thought of you growing up and not wanting me around...sign....Or maybe you will be like me and call your mommy all the time! I love you my little bug! Love Mommy
Out of the mouth of Hannah... Me: Hannah, time to get off the couch and get ready for the day! Hannah: But Mom!! It's a party in the U.S.A!!
I found these nice 'n cozy matching pjs and Childrens Place and am so glad that I bought them! My kids look SO stinkin' cute in them! And of course Porter is extra snugly!We loved this time of the year and love that we have a new little one to share it with. Enjoy your Christmas holiday!
P.S. There are many of you out there that read my blog that I don't have addresses for. I would love to send you a Christmas Card. So if you don't mind, leave me your address in the comment box so that I can get one to you!! Merry Christmas!
I was so happy to have my family come up to see us and the new baby. They flew in on the 23rd late and stayed a whole week! It was so nice to have a "magic kitchen" and a "magic house"! i.e. cleans itself without me even touching it!
It was nice to not worry about taking care and holding Porter all day and night. The extra help is greatly missed! Thanks mom and Scott for all your help! Love you guys!!
Hannah wanted a Pony cake. She picked out everything, cake mix, frosting, sprinkles, and pony. I can't believe that my little girl is 4!!!
Last one! Blow!!
Hannah's birthday dinner. She LOVES meatballs!!
We went to House of Bounce for Hannah's birthday and it was a blast! Even the adults could bounce! We had so much fun and built up a good sweat!
Hannah and Grandma
Kurtis and my step dad Scott playing this really fun game! You are connected to a bungee cord and have to try to get the little bean bag the furthest. This game was popular with all the adults and even the kids tried! (love Kurtis's face in this picture!)
Jayden, Caleb and Hannah playing "save the princess" or somthing like that!
I just had to snap a picture of these yummy mashed potatos!
Sitting down to eat our feast! It was the fist time my mom ever cooked Thanksgiving dinner and boy did it turn out yummy! We only ran into one problem.....there where no turkeys left at Walmart! Who just runs out of turkeys two days before Thanksgiving?! So we sent the men on a wild "turkey" chase to find us one. They came home with a 20 pounder! Thanks guys!
Me: "Hannah, it is time to get into the tub." Hannah: " I can't mom, I am a slug." Me: bending down to pick up the "slug" Hannah: "Don't touch me, I am eeewwie and gooey, and sticky and slimy AND slobbery." Me: *sigh*
Kurtis: Caleb, what are you doing? Caleb: How did you hear that? Do you have fox ears or something? Kurtis and me: *trying to keep a straight face.*
This is me in a nutshell
My greatest joys and frustrations come form being a mother.
I love making new friends and love keeping my old ones too.
I LOVE to laugh...until I cry...about funny stories!
You'll always find cookies or chocolate in my home.
"Roker"...you will never be complete until you play it.
I am 27 years old...almost 28...ugg!
I love to shop for kids clothes...and really LOVE buying pajamas for my little girl!
I love a clean kitchen.
Love to eat out...anywhere!
I am always looking for something "fun" to do.
Can't stay in my house for too long or I start to go insane.
Hate the cold...dream of living in a warm climate all year round..still working on getting my hubby to agree. :)
Love listening to Taylor Swift!!
I love to take pictures of my kids!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!
