Precious little guy

Welcome Baby Jett!
Look at that dark hair!
Such a precious little is a MIRACLE EVERY TIME!!! God is good to us that we get to be a part of and enjoy His creation!

Slowly but surely

This is all of the ribbon I have left from making the girl's letters that hang in their room
I am slowly getting their room decor done. I finished the pillow covers about a month ago.
Now the letters to match. I am contemplating a short curtain for the top of their window. We'll see. Their walls need some love.

Oh Cohl!

Happy Birthday Buddy! 7 years ago God introduced us to Cohl. What an amazing day! We have so enjoyed being his parents and are continuing to learn how to parent an energetic, super smart and observant boy. He can make a friend with anyone and has become such a role model in his class already. He is a joy to be around. He was such a great encourager of his sister Kirra this year when she started school that it gives us hope for him looking out for both sisters as they get older. He has a sensitive side about him that makes you just want to squeeze him. One of our all-time favorite quotes of Cohl's is when his response to us saying, "come on outside," was," I'm and inside guy." You see he was thinking about playing on the computer...and he was only 4. We still laugh about that. He has become such a fantastic swimmer and loves to play soccer. We are excited to see how God will shape him and what this year holds for him.
We were finally able to do an outside party this year at one of the local "splash parks". The kids were nice and cool but we parents baked.
Fun with friends.

11 Years and Counting...

We celebrated 11 years this past August!
This was the funniest thing. We went on a walk in Monterey and these seals had taken over these little boats.
After seeing this picture I thought to myself, "I think I was wearing this same shirt last year when we took this picture...and I think you were wearing that same sweatshirt." We went to the same house, thanks to our sweet and generous friends. Well I guess we're consistent if not anything else. :)
