Ok, so I'm a little behind on my posts-I'm a mom of three, well four, counting my husband-what can you expect? I added a slideshow-so check it out. This spring was very welcome in our house. We waited to hear back from Stephen's school for acceptance into the Gifted Program, which he did! He's in the top 3-5% academically in the whole disctrict for his grade. We're very proud!!! He gets to take the bus to his new school, which isn't too far, and no more driving to and from school next year:). Kaylie took gymnastics for a couple months and LOVED it, we'll be back for the fall season and then Gracie gets to start too. Steve's been busy working on his new company, as have I, Mow and Grow Lawncare Services. We donate every third mow to a local charity of their choice. People are very receptive and word is starting to spread. He's also partnered up with one of our friends and is doing his painting business and some construction. In the evenings he's working on his Real Estate License. He should be done by the end of July and have his license in no time. He's very good at his trade businesses but we'd both rather have him doing what he's best at, talking and selling! I am busy being a Mom and looking into going back to school this fall to get into Nursing School. They have a great program here and I'm really excited to back to civilization after all these years of staying home. It's a blessing, really, to stay home with the kids, but also very exciting to get to do something for myself and get out to talk to other adults! In the meantime, I'm keeping busy playing in the pool with the kids, sewing, and volunteering a little at our church doing some catering for some small events. Well I hope it won't take too long to add more pictures and posts in the future!

Gracie turns 1!

I can't believe it's been a year! Gracie
is so fun. How can such a little
person have so much personality?
She just mastered the skill of
walking and saying, well, demanding,
things. For instance, if I yell for
one of the other kids or Steve,
Gracie mimmicks me by mumbling
very firmly. She deffinently means
it. Then she looks at me like, "Yeah,
we told them!". It's
both very cute but
worrisome at the
same time!

Christmas Time!!!

We couldn't wait to get all the
decorations up! The kids were
very "helpful" and eager to help with
everything. We put on Christmas
music and put things up until the
kids started to fall asleep!

The Latest and Greatest!

The joys of parenting!!! The kids are as cute as ever and love to make messes! But they're worth it. They love to do crafts and help me bake things. I'm so glad they teach Steve and I how to have fun! We can get so caught up with everyday stresses and troubles that we forget the simple things in life. They remind us to take a breath and live in the moment. We're truly blessed to have such a beautiful family!!!

Pirates, Ghosts, and Ladybugs, Oh My!

Halloween was a blast this year! Stephen and Kaylie could hardly contain their excitement! Neither could Steve-I think he had more fun than the kids! Stephen went as a pirate again, Kaylie was a "Princess Ghost", and Gracie was, of course, a Ladybug. They were all adorable and we all had a lot of fun going around our own neighborhood. I think we decided it was time to head home when the buckets were overflowing and Kaylie could hardly walk anymore...I think Trick-or-Treating is making a comeback.

Camping in Coeur D'Alene!

We had so much fun camping! It was great to see everyone and let the kids play with each other.


Ok, I've been a little behind on posting. Give me a break-I've got 3 munchkins to run after, well 4 if you count my husband! Kaylie turned 3 in April and had a "Pink Princess" party. She had a blast getting our dog, Dizzle, to play along! Stephen turned 7 in August with a barbeque party. He had fun also, our friends brought over their bounce house for the kids-it totally saved me from coming up with corny birthday games to play! Little Gracie is growing like a weed. She continues to steal the spotlight with her squeals and jibber-jabber!
