It's time I got back onto this blog. Forgive me that it's been awhile! Tonight was a good reminder to me for why I need to keep posting here. Today, Aiden, stood up on his chair and mooned me at a restaurant! All this, while singing "shake your booty, shake your booty". I'm sure with the holiday season upon us, there will be many more stories to come. Stay tuned...

My Son's "Wife"

So my boy Charlie, top picture below, apparently got married the other day while over at his friend's house.  I was a little offended that I didn't get to be their photographer, so I made them pose for a few pics.  She is a very stylish little girl (as you can tell by her new, and fake, glasses she's sporting)!  It is amazing watching these two together!  They crack me up!!!

They both have older sisters going through the adorable age of toothlessness!  A tooth here, a tooth there, no tooth in between.

And then there's my dark blue-eyed boy sporting my favorite shirt on him.  I'd say that his irish eyes are smiling, but when he smiles, his eyes disappear!  But when they are open, boy do they glow!

THESE KIDS ARE CRAZY!  We had a great winter and are anxiously  looking forward to a warm Spring!!!  We never got around to building a snowman this year, but covered the snow-angels and sledding (without too many injuries)!  Here are a few pics when we had a snowday and were trapped in our house.  They're all a little ready to be outside running through the field, planting a yummy garden, and roasting marshmallows/hotdogs!  So Am I!

Charlie is 4!!!

Well, after a week and a half worth of celebrating, Charlie finally turned four!  It's so much fun to see how excited kids get and to remember the joy in birthdays.  It seems as you get older, birthdays tend to be more of a reflection on life, not enough celebration.  As the kids get older, each year is my favorite, but I'll miss the ages they were.  

Charlie had plenty of John Deere celebrations filled with multiple deserts and remote controls!  Happy Birthday Little Buddy!!!
