Picture Overload

I really want to catch up on this blog, since this is essentially my only way to journal these days. So forgive me for the overload, but I am going to forget what we have been up to. We have had lots of fun and are staying very busy. It is helping the time pass quickly and takes our minds away from having dad gone so much. Although, I must say, dad has been with us quite a bit lately and we LOVE it! I have TONS more to update, but this is a start. So here goes, very quick update:

Maggie's front tooth gets knocked out by Lainey at Brecken's baptism.

The next day about 5 hours before Aaron's family's pictures.Lainey jumps fropm the table to the couch with a Lincoln Log in her mouth , knocks out her front tooth and does some serious damage to her face. Poor baby! (this was about three days later and she looks so much better here!)

Our first stitches. Hallie had three stitches after she fell while jumping on the bed. I thought girls were supposed to have less traumatic injuries than boys? Hmmm. . . .

A fun trip to Disneyland with Sharisse! What a treat to have her come into town and stay with us for a couple of days. We were all in heaven.

Girl's Night Out to American Idol. It was so much fun! We took Hallie and she loved it!

Maggie's First Day of Preschool. She looks so big, (especially compared to the rest of the kids in her class). She is loving it and it is good to see her happy and thriving in school.

Fun trip on the boat with Hallie's Froggie Backpack. (It gets passed around the class a week at a time and we get to do fun things with it- like flat Stanley). My dad was so cute and had bags of watermelon and popcorn made for each of the girls.

My darling nephew Isaac. He hold his own with 7 girls when we all get together. Good thing Lainey is as mischevious as little boys, so the two of them along great!
Dance Party in the living room. Happens every night around here. This night we had costumes, black lights and great music!

Erin's Birthday! We had so much fun with them. We so wish we were neighbors!

Hallie on picture day. It was hard for me to see it before, but she really does look just like I did when I was little. we watched home videos the other day and it is almost freaky how much we look alike!

Fun at the Beach! We went for dinner one night and had a blast. The kids jumped in the water before we got their swimsuits on, so we let them swim in their clothes and ride home in their swimsuits? Whatever works, right!
