Captain Clayton

Clayton absolutely loves the little captain suit he got for Christmas.  He "parades" around the house in it, so it was quite a challenge to get him still enough for any great pictures.  But, here are a few attempts.  :-)

Brother and Sisterly love . . . for now. :-)

Spring Fever!

We have Spring Fever in a really bad way!  I was so thankful for the warmer weather that we had last week and the kids LOVED being able to go outside! I knew it wouldn't last (even snowed a little yesterday), but we loved it while it was here!

We love our front porch, oh yes we do!

Our first stroller ride of the year. They hadn't been in there 5 minutes when Addy discovered she could reach her hand through the middle to get to Clayton.  This could make for some interesting stroller rides. :-)

Come on Spring!!

The house is open!  :-)

Clayton loves to shut the door and Addy loves to open it.

In this little video clip, watch how Addy considers going in through the window since Clayton is holding the door!  :-)  Oh my! Some days I feel like I need to wear black and white stripes and carry a whistle!  :-)

Englund Girls

My nieces = cuteness!

Emme, Allie, and Kaley on the rare occasion that they all 3 have matching dresses!

This little girl is a ham!

LOVED this picture of her bright eyes! :-)

Fun in the Jungle!

One of Clayton's favorite books right now is the Jungle Book.  He often runs through the jungle (aka the house), wants me to call him Mowgli, and says we're not going to the man village.  So, I was delighted when I saw that the Children's Theatre was putting on the Jungle Book!  I'm not sure who was more excited - Clayton or me! We only had to get 2 tickets since they don't start charging for kids until they are 3 (how nice!). 

A great view (for $7 tickets)!

Clayton started crying so hard when it was over. He wanted to see Mowgli again. :-(

Hi Monkey!

Addy got an elephant mask.  But, since she wouldn't put it on . . .

I did for her! :-)

It was so good to meet up with my dear cousins, Rachelle Himelick and Christy Lindahl, last week.  We had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs catching up during our 2-hour lunch.  Christy has a brand new baby and I was so delighted to get to meet her!

We were quite the crew at Chic-Fil-a.  The restaurant wasn't too busy and they didn't mind our 2-hour lunch at all. :-)

Christy and little Lake.

(and Addyson since she wouldn't let me put her down)

All our children (tired out after their play-land adventures).

Since I was in Indy for school picture retake day at UBC, I had them stop by the school for some quick shots . . .

Becca, Sam, Kaylynn, and Sarah

Lake Arria at 17 days old

What a darling little baby!
