family time

The Sunday following my surgery, my family decided to bring dinner over for me, Paul, and the kids.

I am so thankful for them and their love and support. Without these people I would be nothing. I love you all!

Today also marked our sister Savanna's birthday. She would have been 13 years old. Being together on these days is so uplifting and reminds us that God is faithful!
Happy Birthday sister. Although its been 13 years, your spirit and memory is stronger then its ever been before! Give Mommy a kiss for us!

Hockey Hockey Hockey

Any opportunity that presents itself for Cole to breath hockey, play hockey, and now read hockey - he takes full advantage!

I have a feeling it will be any day before Savannah realizes she can get to where she wants to go a whole lot quicker by walking.

She has mastered standing for several seconds. So long that when I took this picture, I went from the kitchen to the office to grab the camera, returned, and here she still was!

and instead of just falling to the floor, she gently brings herself to sit again!

Keeping Busy

With Daddy's new schedule at work ( last week he worked over 80 hours! ) the babies and I have a lot of time on our hands

So, this Mommy has been keeping us all busy.

We have been walking over three miles every morning.

We've been cooking together, reading, learning our numbers, ABC'S, how to write our name, .. and many more interesting things!

..We've been baking!

... discovering there is nothing like good ol' batter!

... and gardening!

Today we planted flowers, and herbs!

my little gardener!

Here is the rosemary, basil, and lemon thyme we are now growing!

Cole has been a great helper. He has loved all of our new projects. Stay tuned for many, many more!
