Austin Soccer

Abby's Baptism

Halloween 2009

I'm not sure why Autin is showing up so small? For Halloween Austin was a skeleton and Abby was "Scary Spa Girl".

Austin's Birthday


Abby Soccer

Abby played soccer this fall. She did a wonderful job! She is going to be on a traveling team in the spring!

Sweet ELIZA is 7!

Eliza's birthday was Aug 11. She turned 7. Nothing rips my heart strings more than watching my baby girl grow. This is our conversation.

Me: "Eliza! Quit growing or I am going to have to use my magic wand and shrink you or put you in time out!"

Eliza: Mom, I am growing up. (and just to crush my heart a little more)I want to grow up so I can get my own house and get 7 cats and 4 dogs.

Me: Eliza, if you get cats, I can't visit. I am allergic to them. I hate cats.

Eliza: Well.... then you will need to stay outside when you visit.

Me: What if it's cold outside?

Eliza: Then I will come visit you. Mom, I need my 7 cats.

And so, during the next 11 years of Eliza's life, my job as Eliza's mother is to teach her to not like cats. (wasn't I nice to not say hate. Sorry to all the cat lovers. :)

Breanna, of course, "beauty shopped her up" for her grand entrace to the breakfast table where her 7 pancakes (and under her plate $7) were waiting.

Here's my 7 year old princess!


Love you, always my BABY girl!

First Day of School

First day of school was on Thursday, August 20, 2009. All of my kids couldn't wait! Okay, Justin wasn't thrilled, but everyone else wanted to see their friends. Here is a picture of everyone on the first day:

Justin after school!

Breanna! How did she grow up so fast!
The four littles! So, so, CUTE!

But these are my favorite! So glad to come home! I hope they are always this excited to come home.

These are the moments I will treasure!
