This Happened

Yep.  This is what happens when you are the youngest of four.

Let’s say it together now….Hand-me-downs.

Oh well, no matter the shirt, Mason can rock it with personality.



Happy Wednesday.

Today is Scott’s birthday but he is at work so birthday pictures will have to wait until later.

Love from Colorado,



Tiny Dancer

Our sweet Paige had her dance recital last night.  She looked adorable and danced her little heart out.  We were so proud of her. She is definitely our shy child and getting on stage isn’t always her thing but she did a beautiful job nonetheless.




She’s Getting Bigger…..

Our girl Rosie continues to be just as cute as ever.  She is definitely growing and it is getting quite cumbersome to carry her up and down the stairs.  Today she is thirteen weeks old and about 30 pounds.  We started puppy training this week and it seems to be going pretty good.  Of course, we have never had a puppy, so no matter what she does, we automatically think she is the smartest dog ever.

And she is.  Super smart.  Usually good, sometimes naughty:)




It is hard to be mad at her when she is soooo adorable.

Happy Thursday,





A couple of weeks ago, Alice had a big final presentation to finish up her primary years planner.  Essentially all the fifth graders had to complete a project that included all the standards taught throughout elementary school.  The fifth graders were placed in small groups based on interest level.  Alice’s group chose to learn more about endangered animals, and  more specifically, Sumatran Tigers.  They started working on this project back in January.  They did extensive research, spoke with many experts, worked with a mentor who was familiar with the Sumatran region and made an action plan to help save some tigers.  All in all, they raised enough money to adopt 6 Sumatran Tigers.  The final project was a 15 minute presentation for the families.  Alice’s group did an excellent job presenting their information.  We were so proud of them for working so hard on this exhibition of knowledge.




Way to go Alice!  She is now starting to focus on middle school.  She is going to be learning to play the flute next year.  Two kids in band.  Please pray for my ears:)

Have a great day!
