So it's time to put up the x-mas lights, set up the tree, break out the advent wreath, & decorate the house with our festive tchotchkes.  Of course, the most important thing for the children is that list to Santa Claus!!  You are welcome to use the link below to peruse just exactly what the kids are asking for this year...

Okay, okay... I know I've been very bad about keeping the blog updated.  I don't really have any excuses... other than 'My dog ate my computer'.  Except I don't have a dog, and dogs don't really eat computers.  I suppose they could chew on the cables.  Or piddle on the hard drive....
Anyways!  Liesl's birthday was at the beginning of October and she YEARNED for a horse themed birthday party.  We were able to make it happen.  Reserved a party at the stables on base and rented 2 ponies for an hour.  The girls had a lot of fun!

At the end of October was.... Halloween!  The family went to a festival at a local museum, and they also went trick or treating in the neighborhood.  I think that this year, people must have drove in and 'shopped' for candy.  We ran out of candy in the first hour and Ray said he noticed a plethora of cars parked all over our neighborhood that are not normally there.  So we ended the evening turning off all the lights and hiding!!

And finally, the one thing you're really here for....  pictures of Daigh!  His first year album has been updated and there are additional pictures for you to peruse.  Enjoy.

Our Fun Family Ultrasound Trip....

Today we headed over to Hampton for a fun family ultrasound trip... the kids got to 'see' their brother for the first time... yes, it IS a boy!!  Ray says he has (or rather, we have) broken the fighter pilot curse at last...  I am posting the pictures from the visit... maybe I'll post the video later... it's a little bit better because some of the pictures move around a bit so you can see baby's face from different angles... and you get to see more of baby, it's torso & legs... anyway, enjoy!

Easter Video


Happy Easter!

It was a lovely & warm weekend.  We had a busy weekend full of egg decorating, baking cookies, prepping for an Easter tea party, doing a family activity involving resurrection cookies, watching movies, & hunting for eggs.  We even found time to go to church.

I am posting two albums here.... one from our amazing snow weekend back in February!  We got a LOT of snow and the kids had fun breaking out their snow clothes to play in the snow all weekend...

We also had fun just staying home for Christmas.  It was nice to relax while the kids played with their new toys...
