Vaiden's 7 years old!!

Vaiden's 7!!  Vaiden had the best party this year!!  Pool party in fun!!

Vaiden choose what he wanted on his turned out really cute!!   He said that he was the little boy diving off the diving board, Mary Katharine is in the water with flowers in her hair, and Whitten is diving under, so that is why you can only see his feet:)

Our big boy!!

Vaiden and all of his buddies!!

Whitten had a blast too!!

Christmas Parade

From the balcony watching the Christmas Parade!!

Whitten loved the band

Mary Katharine loved it all!!

We enjoyed the Christmas Parade from our neighbor friends work balcony!!  It was so nice being up there because the kids were able to run around and play.  We brought 2 full canisters of hot chocolate and marshmallows.  The kids loved it.  Mary Katharine had about 10 handfulls of marshmallows and  Vaiden drank about 10 cups of hot chocolate.  We had so much fun and plan to do it again next year

Happy Birthday Michael!!

Michael turned 36 in early December and we cooked a big breakfast for him!!  The boys filled his biscuit with candles and we sang happy birthday.  Happy Birthday to the BEST Daddy and husband in the world!!

Star atop the tree Picture

So hard to post this picture:) ha!!  I really do it so that I can laugh at myself!!  Ever since the first tree Michael and I ever had, I took his picture putting the star on top of the tree.  When Vaiden came along, he got in the picture also, then Whitten, and now Mary Katharine.  I can remember in the earlier years, Vaiden and Whitten had on their sweet smocked Christmas outfits each year.  Well, 3 kids later and just happy to have a tree up, this is the "star on top of the tree picture"...2 boys without shirts!!!! LOL!!  My oh my how our lives the memories!!!!

Whitten...our tumbler

 So fun!!

Whitten has always been a ball full of energy!!!!  We started him in a tumbling class this fall with several of his friends.  He loves it so much and is learning so much too.  Love to see that smile!!
