Oh wow!!

We are down to double digit days on our counter, can't believe how fast time is flying!!! Anybody have any baby baby boy name suggestions?? :-)

First Knitted Project Finished!

I have a ton of stuff to make for the new baby, but I did finish up the first knitted project on my list this week. It only took me a few days to do and turned out decent. There are a few minor flaws, but not too bad! If you don't know what it is, it is called a "sheepy sack". Since we use cloth diapers, wool serves as a cover for the diapers and this little sack is a diaper cover and a sleeper in one, also giving us easy access to the diaper for those middle of the night changes! Anyway, just thought I would show it off!!

Ward Christmas Party

We had the ward Christmas party last week and it was SO cute! They did a "Candyland Christmas" theme and had different parts of the building set up like different parts of the Candyland game. The kids really loved the play area they had set up. They had lots of bouncers, ride ons, and trains.

Our Advent Calendar

We are doing this fun advent calendar this year. It is nothing fancy, but the kids absolutely love it. There is something in each pocket as well as a scripture. It has been such a nice visual aide for Lyna to see how much longer until Christmas!

Alyna Update

We have big taking Alyna to a doctor in Cleveland for the past couple of months. She is trying an alternative treatment for allergies that she has had great success with on her. This week, we had a huge breakthrough. Alyna was able to put egg on her skin with no reaction, then in her mouth with no reaction, and then she was able to eat a brownies and rolls with eggs cooked in them!! This is a huge thing for her considering previous to the treatment she would react by even being touched by eggs. It is a pretty exciting time for us. It is still early in the treatments, but this progress is pretty promising. Please keep Alyna in your prayers that her progress will continue! Here is a photo of her eating her first brownie baked with eggs!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We celebrated Thanksgiving in Ohio with family. We had a great time and wonderful food! Here are a couple of pictures from the day.

Happy 6th Anniversary!

On November 15th it was Michael and I's 6th wedding anniversary. I cannot believe it has been 6 years already! It feels like it is flying by! Michael surprised me with tickets to the BalletMet. It was a great ballet and I know it took a lot for Michael to swallow his pride and attend a ballet, so not his thing! Here is a photo of us ready to go.

I am so blessed to be married to such a wonderful man. He is a great husband and father and I really appreciate all that he does. I love him so very much and look forward to more happy years together! Here are a bunch of photos from our 6 years together!

Happy Birthday Kensie!

November 10th was my 25th birthday. I got lots of great gifts and beautiful flowers and had a wonderful time. We had a small party with family members and cake to celebrate. Here are a few photos of the day.

Here is one of Lyna and I on my birthday. Lyna was so funny, I think she was definitely more excited about it being my birthday then I was!

Lyna wrapped this present all by herself for me, she was pretty excited and I think she may have used all of the tape!

Noah got tired after all the partying and fell asleep early in his chair!

And a photo of all my beautiful flowers I got! And if you are wondering, my dear mother in law bought me some green bananas to wake up to on my birthday (I LOVE green bananas and will only eat them that way!).

Our Gratitude Tree

We did our gratitude tree again this year. I did it a bit differently this time to make it easier. Instead of having an actual tree that took up space, we put up one on the wall instead. It worked so much better and turned out pretty cute. Here are some photos, one of it when we had just started and another of it all full. This was a great way to remember all the many wonderful blessings in our lives and to have them as a reminder everyday!

It's a...

BOY! We have another sweet boy on the way. Should be making his way around March 15th!

Highbanks Park

We have a beautiful park near our house called Highbanks. It has lots of gorgeous nature trails, as well as the normal playground type stuff. We went today and took the kids since the weather was so beautiful! I took the opportunity to play with my camera a bit and tried to get some decent photos of the kids.
