Happy Belated Anniversary

This post is long overdue, but better late than never I suppose.  On December 13th, the hubby and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary.  Thanks babe for being a wonderful husband and father.  You're more than I could have ever asked for.  You do so much for our family.  You are an excellent father and our children adore you.  Thanks for all you do to provide for and support our family.  I love you!!!

Happy Happy Birthday Ella Dear... Happy Days Will Come To You All Year

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!  I can't believe you're three years old already.  It doesn't seem like that long ago we were bringing you home from the hospital.  You are such a sweet girl, although you can definitely be a little sassy too, but you come by it honestly I suppose.  Your daddy and I love you so much and are so proud of the big girl you are becoming.  You are such a good big sister.  You love your brother and sister so much and are such a good example to them.  You love to read and are so excited to start preschool next year.  You love going to nursery at church and are super excited to be a Sunbeam next year.  You love playing with friends and are such a little social butterfly around those you know.  Fortunately, you are a little more reserved with those you don't know, but not nearly as shy as I was when I was little.  I guess you got a good balance of your daddy's and my personalities.  You have become very empathetic to others and you express a lot of concern over others pain.

I'm so grateful to have been blessed with such a sweet little girl and am so grateful to have you in our family.  Happy Birthday baby girl!

Our Newest Addition

I haven't been avoiding this blog, I've just been really busy the last month.  We were busy getting ready for the arrival of our newest family member, which of course involves all sorts of house projects and then we also hosted my family for Thanksgiving this year.  So needless to say, way too much going on.  But life is slowing down a little now and we're getting ready for Christmas so hopefully I'll have a little more time to blog now.  I have so much to show you and I've been taking pictures and meaning to post, but by the time evening rolls around and the munchkins are in bed I'm just too exhausted to even attempt being creative.  So for now those posts will have to wait.  Maybe after the New Year I'll be a little more on the ball with posting.  Hopefully I'll get used to sleep deprivation quickly.  I guess we'll see.

Anyways, let me introduce you to our newest family member.  On December 1st we welcomed the newest member of our family, Ashlynn Rose...

Ashlynn Rose
7 lb 13 oz
19.5 in

Isn't she a doll?  I'm a little biased of course.  She has been such a good baby and eats like a champ.  Now if only we could get the days and nights worked out.  Our other munchkins are in love with her too (a little too much actually).  They love to "share" with her and hold her and give her lots of hugs and kisses.  For now we are just trying to get settled and adjust to our new life.
