 Peter the scooby doo
 Grace the witch
 Noel the gold medal gymnast

October 2014

This little guy continues to grow bigger and bigger.  Time goes by so fast when they are little, especially that first year.
 We went on a camping trip and it was a ton of fun!

 On our way home from camping...we are pretty tired!
 Royals got into the World Series!
 This sweet girl wanted me to sew her this dress for her baptism and I finished it with time to spare!
 Christian has a strong bond with his little brother.

September 2014

Charity got her learner's permit! YIKES!!! She is actually quite a good driver!!  Here is she is in her brother's car...I am sure he won't mind since he can't drive it for another year and a half! :)
This little boy started sucking his thumb cute!
Why did I post this pic...I couldn't resist he is such a ham and so adorable!
A little homeschooling in the yard with a snake! YUCK!
Joshua is starting to smile lots and lots!
Tyler loves his mommy!
Noel is a mommy's helper that is for sure!

I had surgery on my small toe that I broke several months ago...bed rest for 5 days meant my hubby did a lot of baby holding...he seriously is the bomb!
And of course there has been a lot of schooling going on around here!

Joshua Aaron's Blessing (July 6, 2014)

Joshua was blessed in July of 2014.  It was a beautiful blessing and he looked quite handsome!
Here is the whole crew...minus our missionary!  
 Me being a total goof!
 Sweet little boy!

I really wanted a "sailor" type blessing outfit but didn't want to pay the price on the ones I found. So, I whipped up my version of almost exactly what I wanted.  

Joshua Aaron is here! (May 23, 2014)

Our sweet little boy joined our family on May 23.   It was a good delivery...I decided to get an epidural this time.  My first time ever to take meds during a delivery but, my anxiety was out of control and it was the only thing that helped to keep it somewhat under control.  He weighed in at 8 lbs 11oz.  Not the biggest of my boys but, big nonetheless!  Here are pics of all the excitement!!
Look at those fat rolls on his arm!!! 
He has big 'ole feet!


...and hands!


The whole crew...minus our missionary who is in South Korea! He won't get to meet the little guy in person until February of 2016.
