Happy to be 5!

Mackenzie was so happy to turn 5. She just couldn't wait. She is such a sweet girl and she is definitely my fire ball. She is a very spirited girl and I love her for that. She has so many talents and so much energy, it will be fun to see what this girl will be. I know Heavenly Father has a plan for her and it will be great. I am so proud to be her mom. She makes me laugh, she teaches me patience and keeps me on my toes. I love her smile, her competitive nature and her willingness to help me in anyway, most of the time. She is such a blessing to our family. We love you Mackenzie Lynn!

Sweet Cousins!

We had an Eloise party. It was so fitting for Mackenzie.
She reminds me of Eloise. It was so fun!

Happy Birthday!

Paco and Sunshine

Our newest members of the family are Paco and Sunshine. I never thought we would get birds again but we gave in, actually, Rich gave in, I just went along with it. They are nice birds and all the kids love them, even Ryker. He loves to hold them, even if they scratch up his arms.

Special Delivery

I know this looks mean. But Ryker loved playing in the bag and Madison thought it was so funny. Yes, those are Ryker's feet hanging at the bottom of the bag.

Snow Day

This was one of the first snow days of the year. The kids really wanted to build a snowman, so I gave in and got the winter stuff out. They had so much fun and Ryker didn't know what to do with all the snow. He mostly sat in it and ate it. He looked so cute!

1st Snow

Ryker's 1st snow that he could actually see and enjoy. He was mesmerized and just babbled and pointed out the window. It was so cute. We had a big snow storm on the same day we were carving pumpkins. It was a great day to spend indoors together as a family.

Pumpkin Carving

It is our tradition to carve pumpkins together as a family and make a day or night of it. We had so much fun and Rich really got into it with the girls. Everyone was able to carve thier own pumpkins, even Kenzie. We also bake the seeds in the oven and eat them. We all love it.

Pumpkin Patch

Mackenzie has the cutest preschool teacher. Mrs. Heidi is always doing really fun things with her class. On this day we all went to the pumpkin patch. All of the kids got to pick out a pumpkin and got through a corn maze. They had so much fun and so did I. Ryker just wanted to sit in the dirt and play and sometimes he just laid in it. Typical boy.
