here’s just a better pic of luke…he’s such a cutie!!!!
Another New Addition!!! July 14, 2009
Meet the newest member of WooVille…Luke! I know you think we’re crazy for naming him after Star Wars folks but he actually came with the name…reason #1 he is so perfect for us! #2 would be that Germaine has always wanted a british bulldog and after talking and researching we decided on a french bulldog instead. I was talking to a friend at church who’s mom breeds them and said I would love to get one but couldn’t afford it for another few years. She showed me the pic of this little guy and I fell in love as she offered him to me for free! They brought him to his new home here in WooVille yesterday. It was sad for them and he is already missed but dare I say he is having the time of his life with us. He gets all of the attention he needs which is the main reason she was willing to give him up. He is 2 yrs old and already trained, just like we like them. We feel complete with our 4 kids and 2 dogs!!!
Not all pics are worth a thousand words. X got to go with Abuela to Medieval Times for a special cub scout affair. They offered a special deal for current scouts and families, unfortunately on the day we had scheduled I’s b-day party. I called up mom and she was more than happy to take him. He says he doesn’t know how to smile for pics so this is what he did. He wouldn’t dress up but obviously mom did. They got to arrive 2 hours early and go out on the field and learn about swordsmanship. He had a great time! His only complaint was that every now and again the spotlight would go by and shine on them and that was a bit embarassing. Abuela was kind enough to get them front row seats. He loved most of the food and tore up his chicken “like a carnivore”. We are blessed to have Abuela close by so the kids are able to spend special times like these with the kids. Now to work on getting Granny here. She visits this coming week. We know the kids will make special memories with her as well. In the meantime, X is really enjoying scouts. I am one of the new Den leaders for his bear troop and we are both excited about that. We look forward to lots more memories to share and fun cub scouting ahead!
A Cool Evening… July 7, 2009
This evening was really nice outside. C and M went to spend the night at Abuela and Nana’s so we at home had a picnic. Illy got to swing for about an hour and a half and didn’t want to get down. X joined in the fun too and played with Aspen some. It was really lovely to spend time with just 2 kids and give them lots of attention.
I haven’t felt much like blogging but thought this would be fun to share. ENJOY!!!
Illyana turned 2 yesterday! We had a quiet day…no big plans. She is having a lollipop birthday party this weekend, an ode to her love of candy or tandy as she calls it. Here is a pic of her eating her birthday apple pie after returning home from having fries at McD’s…she’s spoiled rotten…enough said!
kid pics June 10, 2009
Mom and Cherryl decided to have pics of the kids taken out on the farm. We called upon our photographer friend Jared to make the trek out to nowhere and help us out. Here are some pics I swiped off of his website so that I can update everyone on our growing kids.
I love that these are everyday pics. We didn’t dress them nicely, just tried to make sure they were clean which was spoiled by having supper before taking the pictures. Oh well! It’s a true reflection of our lives and how we live and the everyday perfection that is our children. They’re really growing! It’s hard to believe that we no longer have babies around here. Miss I will be 2 next month and though she will remain our baby she is hardly that anymore. We feel so blessed to have the worlds most awesome kids to call our own.
More Daddy Daughter pics… February 23, 2009
Here are a few more pics taken in our front yard as they were leaving for the dance.
This last pic is of C and her friend Teegan. She is the daughter of some family friends of ours. She and her daddy joined Germaine and C for a fun night of dancing and sweet treats. Teegan even got to dance with an officer, one of the dad’s dressed in his military uniform. Such a fun time!
