Our ONE Year Old

I am fighting my urge to post all of the 59 pictures that I took throughout Ella's birthday events. Just let it be said that she was the sweetest birthday baby and we all love her so much!
For everyone who admired Ella's adorable hair clips and those who just love cute things... here is the link the where I bought them.

They are a great price and I just love them!

Ella's almost one photo shoot with Mom


Our very nice neighbor gave us this motorcycle last summer. Of course the kids LOVE it. It is fun for them but it causes too many fights this summer. Owen has discovered how much fun it is to be behind the wheel. Yet this 2 year old is far from getting his drivers license. He has run over Carson's leg, crashed into the van, and right after I took this picture he gunned it and the friend on the back fell right off. It has a short battery life and that I do like.


A little bird built this nest under our deck. We haven't seen any birds in it though. It was carefully made with twigs and mud. It was fun to look at.

Ella's First Hair Cut




Sydney minus one more tooth

Sydney and her Dad tried to wait for this tooth to fall out naturally, however, they both got impatient. This time it was more of a procedure, but the tooth came out and everyone is happy.

We have some great news to share: We sold our house. I don't think it could have worked out any better for us. We are so thankful to have it sold and to be done with it. It has been such a HUGE blessing.

Big Brother

This is Ella's sippy cup, it has juice in it. Yes, juice in a sippy-we do know how awful that is. Owen loves juice, but we rarely have it and I really only buy it for Ella. So Owen is forever trying to steal her sippy cup away. Today was no different. When I would leave the room, he would drink it. When I came back in, he quickly put in Ella's mouth. Sneaky...

Sense of Humor

Owen thinks this is SO SO funny to do. Mr. Potato Head glasses on HIM, how silly can you get?

Warmer Weather

Mom: Carson look at me.
Carson: I'm supposed to look at the ball.
Mom: Just look up quick.
Carson: Maybe just take an action picture Mom.
Mom: Okay.
Carson: Did you get it?
Mom: Yep.

First Steps

Ella is 11 months old and she has started taking a few steps.
