A Blink of an Eye

Seems like just yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital......

and in a blink of an eye your personality was starting to shine....

But little did we know how much personality you were developing

We can't wait to watch you grow more and more in the years to come.
Happy 3rd Birthday Bianca!

Fall Fun

The fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is typically beautiful for being outside and there are so many festivals and things to do! This fall we have been busy with cheerleading

flag football

and enjoying fall festivals and pumpkins!

With Halloween right around the corner and I am sure winter too, what else can we get ourselves into on these beautiful fall days?

Exceeding Expectations

When I signed the kids up for swim team this year, I had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. This was our first year joining the pool and I was just hoping that the kids would improve their strokes and become stronger swimmers.

Swim team far exceeded my expectations. Not only did the kids, Bianca included, improved their swimming, the friendships that grew over the summer were wonderful. We have now lived in our neighborhood four years, but this year was the first year I have felt part of the community.

We had a great time cheering on each others kids and relaxing with a drink by the pool. Congratulations to the Hiddenbrook Hurricanes for winning Division 13 and going undefeated. We can't wait for next year!

America's Birthday

Although we did not have our annual picnic on the fourth of July, it was still a blast to get together with friends and cookout on the third. Its amazing how each year the atmosphere changes just a little since the kids are another year older or because we have more kids in the group. What ever the changes, some things still remain the same, brats, burger, beer, fireworks and the companion of friends!

Who know the jeep could hold so many kids!

Good old VA fireworks

Aren't they cute?

This is from Easter, but is one of my favorite recent pictures of all three kids.

....and quiet. Thank goodness the rain has stopped, the sun is out, the temperatures are nice and the kids can play outside. I can sit and enjoy my glass of wine and take in the sights of them all getting along.....for now.

Another Milestone

From the time he entered our lives

His smiles have brought us much joy

Year after year we have watched him grow

And celebrate another milestone

Grow taller and taller and taller

Watching his personality develop

Today we celebrate Jack's 6th birthday and look forward to watching him continue to grow (although hopefully not too tall)
