Also, Christmas was crazy with the family, minus short stack, catching the flu. We all had varying degrees of it, but Ethan and Simon were hit incredibly hard. It put our usual holiday festivities on hold for a while, but we were able to squeeze in the important stuff the week of Christmas.
About 35 weeks pregnant
We take fun fall pictures every year in front of Willy's parent's house. She always does a great job with the pictures and it's so much fun to play in the leaves with the boys.
Colton loves gymnastics! And is begging to go back soon.
Ethan has played to sessions of soccer, and is beginning club soccer this weekend. He forgot his socks in this picture. Better than the weekend before when he had two right shoes.
Oh my, this smile
A minute later, Benjamin started crying and Ethan then started to cry saying Benjamin hated him.
Super proud of how this cake looked!
Ethan turning SEVEN
Colton and I had a shopping day right before Christmas. It was a ton of fun hanging out with him.
I was nervous handing lil one over, but Santa was certain.
Simon bounced between wanting to cry and being in awe.
My four boys in front of the tree. Christmas was a little tougher this year than last. It was Christmas number five without Lucas and Caleb. Being busy and up with Benjamin helped some. There will always be a hole there where they should be, though the edges aren't nearly as sharp as that first year.
Benjamin meeting Grandma Jojo
And proud Aunt Shari
My crazy boy with his hat and animals. This is the picture most days during lunch.
I took the four boys to Jump Mania on New Years Eve to get out of the house and run off some energy. It was a fun, smooth trip.
Game night with the big boys.
Dairy free and soy free cake frosting!
Hot cocoa and cookies after school. The boys were excited!!
