Busy and Sick. Still Beautiful.

Sorry for being a little MIA lately. October slammed us right in the face and we haven't stopped going, going, going since then. I'm over it, if you want me to be honest. Had Dan's wedding, Mom & Abs in town, Russ had the Man Retreat, the whole family went on the youth retreat and we've been in and out of sickness the whole time. Everyone is over the coughing, snotty, congested mess except me and Lydie. Blaaaah!!!!! I just want my normal voice back! And Russ and I need a date! Bad! So bad! A good date though! Not one that is just like an hour and a half at a restaurant we've eaten at 30 times. I'm talking a really good date. We need to get out of Dodge! Our kids are very, very present all the time. I'm sure that's how everyone's kids are, but lately we've been feeling like they are every where we turn! And if they're not right there, we can hear them destroying something in the background, so we're hunting them down! Ah! Anyway. Been real bad with taking pictures lately. We did have these gorgeous photos taken by Sally. I love them. She was able to capture each girl's personality perfectly. I need to weed through them to print some off for our house... The to-do list just keeps growing. Anyway, here's a few of my favorite shots of our lovely little ladies. I heart them!!!

Noa wouldn't stop posing. Cute!!

Stop it Babers. You're killin' me.
I think Lydie thinks this is a smile. :)

Yes, Hooie is officially part of the family. Even made it into the family photo shoot!

Notice how Noa is stealing the cherry from Ruthie. Caught red handed!

Grammy & Abby Visit

We have a lot more pictures on a different camera, but I thought I would post a few pics I have from my camera. We loved having you, Grammy & Abs!
Just bein' sweet
Playing at the park
Reading the books Grammy bought them.
Someone thought she was such a big deal in her new wheels!
What an awesome Grammy. She let us run in the sprinkler when it was freezing outside!!! She's WAY better than Mom!

Come again soon!!!!!
