May. So far...

Abby turned 5!

We got to spend some time away. 
The kids had a great time playing outside.

Abby had her second ballet recital.

He's just too cute!

March and April

We put Nathan in a nursery at a church we went to for a
special event, and that night, he got a stomach bug.  Fortunately
for him, it was really short (I didn't know he was sick in his
bed until I got him up the next morning) but he didn't feel good all day.

When Nathan got better, the rest of us got sick.  Thankfully,
most of the kids were sick before I got it!

The boys are all about light sabers and guns and swords.

Sometimes there are casualties...

He's a pastor's kid...she's a missionary's kid...both mommas are
already planning the wedding.  No, I'm not joking.  Am I CJ?

Nathan's working on perfecting "The Fit"

Email me if you can tell me the secret to getting five kids to
all be happy and look at the camera at the same time...


I haven't forgotten to blog...January and February

I just haven't taken the time to do it lately.  We've been wrapping up school and just living life, so I just haven't kept things up to date here!

Here are some pictures to update you on where we are:

Micah lost his first tooth...

We went to our niece's wedding in Keith's hometown...

It snowed...

Nathan figured out how to sleep sitting up...

And he figured out how to cut a flip...

In February, the big kids went to visit Nana and
Gramps, so the little ones got lots of time with Keith and I.

Then it snowed again.  In February.

Nathan doesn't cuddle much, but he enjoys it when he does.

Micah turned 7!

Family Vacation Part 3

Finally, we went to the Gaylord Opryland Resort to wander around.  I wanted to get there while there was still enough daylight to see, but it was hard getting babies up after naps, so it was pretty dark once we go there.  We only saw one part of the hotel, but the kids don't know they missed any of it, so we didn't mention it.  I was disappointed, but I've seen it before, so I wasn't too upset.  We did get to see the water show, and everyone liked it.

And they still had some Christmas decorations up!

Family Vacation Part 2

The next day, we went to the Opry Mills Mall, and ate at the Rainforest Cafe.  We've walked past the Rainforest Cafe many times when we lived in Flower Mound and went to the Grapevine Mills Mall, but we never ate there.  Of course, we didn't have kids, either, so we never really had an interest in going.  It was a fun place for the kids to enjoy.  Everyone liked it until the rainstorm started and Bethany flipped out.  My favorite part was holding my shaking two year old.  I love me some two year old hugs!

After lunch, we went to pet the stingrays and walk through the Aquarium restaurant.
