Finger Paint



I let my girls fingerpaint this morning and it was quite an adventure. Can you tell the difference in their personalities by their painting techniques? Valerie had it everywhere and kept trying to eat it, while Olivia painted nice and neat!






All 6 cousins!

We had a great weekend with cousins Natalie and Naomi! My sister and her family came to visit and so did Grandma and Grandpa Parker. We had a great time together celebrating a late Christmas even though my children all came down with pink eye and a cold a couple days before they all came. Despite the sickies we all had fun and hopefully noone else caught our germs!

We had a wonderfll, but very busy Christmas! Kyle's parents were here at our house on Christmas day and then my mom and step dad came on Monday and stayed until Wednesday, then my dad came on Friday! It was wonderful to celebrate with all our families and to be home and all together for Christmas!

Ella Hope

Ella was born on December 23rd at 12:44 pm. She weighed 6lbs 10oz. She is perfectly healthy and we were both able to come home on Christmas Eve! We are adjusting to life as a family of 6 and everyone loves her! The twins are surprisingly gentle with her and are constantly coming up and giving her kisses! Landon loves to hold her while he is watching cartoons. Ella completes our family and we now have our LOVE children. Landon- Olivia- Valerie- Ella

Landon's Bike-a-thon

Landon had his first bike-a-thon at school to raise money for St. Jude Children's hospital. It was a fun day and he loved getting stickers all over his bike!


We went to a couple of Pumpkin Patches this year. The girls even enjoyed it this year!

Big Girls




My girls are growing up. In August they both started pulling themselves up to standing. In September they both started walking pushing things and riding push bikes/cars. Olivia started walking independently towards the beginning of November and Valerie towards the end.
