Look Who's Two!

Wow - she's 2 already?!! 

One of Addy's favorite songs right now is Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. I was holding her on my lap looking at a cake book and she kept pointing to the star cake. So, here's my attempt. She loved it, and that's what matters. :-)

Now, if I can get her trained right, I'll have lots of help around the house. :-)

Kids Christmas Program

The Christmas program for kids church is always a highlight and this year was Addy's debut!  She and Clayton got to participate in the last two songs and joyfully waved their flags. :-) 

They also enjoyed the Christmas party the day before and the favorite activity - a snowball fight with gigantic marshmallows!

How cool is Miss Tara, the Children's Director, who plays with the kids?

Clayton wanted to eat them (and did)!

Family: one of God's greatest gifts!

Special thanks to my Indy friend, Liz, for the photo swap! :-)

All B-O-Y

My nephews, Elijah and Tanner, are hilarious.  We did a photo session when they were recently at our house and got quite a few laughs - out of us - not them. :-) Here are some favorites. (Dana - I left these big so you can take them off of here and do what you wish with them.)

Love this one - I think Tanner was a little more than done! :-)

Would praying help you both stay still enough to be in the same picture? Nah...  :-)

Such a Little Man

Reegan is the cutest little 6-month old boy around! Thanks, Ron and Jennee, for letting me photograph him!

He made such a cute little skunk for Halloween!

The Little Lego

This year we went with DIY costumes - and we all LOVED them!  I saw this Lego idea online and knew that's what I wanted to do for Clayton and Addyson.  We had fun making them and they had fun wearing them.

Down to the basement for a quick picture before we headed out for a candy-filled night!

Elijah and Tanner (my nephews) were the cutest little pirates!

We had a lot of fun at out Trunk or Treat at the church.

The Loper Kids

I was absolutely delighted when my cousin, Melissa, stopped by with her kids when they were in town! We had a fun time catching up and did some very impromptu photos of the kids when we went down to the basement. :-)  We loved having them here!

Clayton's 3rd Birthday

Our "little" boy is now 3. I know time flies, but I'm sure the last three have gone faster than the previous ones.

A hug from the birthday boy.

Sooo excited over his balloons and birthday banner (or star spangled banner, as he called it)!  :-)

He has requested a hot air balloon cake for weeks.

He celebrated with cousin, Kaley, since she turns 10 on Wednesday. I put a video on facebook of his reaction when he saw his cake for the first time.

His own little wheelbarrow! He was excited (in case you can't see it written all over his face).

He and Addy both love having their cousins here!

Our little blessing!
