Hard at Work


The weather has been beautiful here this week. The other day Tanner wanted someone to go outside and play with him. He asked Jack and I heard Jack say, "Sorry Tanner, I'm working." (He was playing Magic Match on the computer.) Oops, I wonder where he picked that up.

Today is...

A Day At The Beach

We spent last weekend at the beach with the Dockstader Family.  It was good to get away even if only for a couple of days.  The kids got to explore the tide pools and we also had a chance to visit the elephant seals.  It didn't matter that it was 51 degrees outside we still couldn't keep the kids out of the water!  Jack had a great time chasing the seagulls and Tanner & Hannah came home with a bucket full of sand dollars & seashells.  Maclynn and I had a great time just enjoying the kids. 

Birthday Boy!

March 16th was Jack’s birthday.  I tried to post an entry and photo album on last Monday, but couldn’t get it to work.  So here’s a little recap of the last 4 years...

His first 4 months were a little rough.  Due to infantile seizures that would cause him to stop breathing he was put on anti-seizure medication and an apnea monitor for the first 4 months.  At 4 months we celebrated a clean bill of health!

He brings us so much joy and laughter we feel truly blessed to have him as part of our family.  Happy Birthday Jack-Jack!

It’s A Girl!

Unfortunately, I don’t have as much time as I would like to devote to this post.  We found out this morning that we are having a girl.  She is healthy and we are soooo excited.  Hannah has been counting the days until we could find out.  She wants a sister so bad.  So my mom & I showed up at school with pink cupcakes and a balloon.  Needless to say she was thrilled and Tanner was excited about the cupcakes!
