Warm Friday

Temperatures are so warm here for this time of the year.  We thought the kids should play outside and enjoy it!

Wow, was there a lot of mud!!

We are enjoying it knowing that by the end of the week it will be in the 30's again...and that isn't even  cold for this time of the year!

I think I'm the only one that isn't sad the snow is gone.  I always tell people that snow is great for Christmas, but then it can get warm and the snow can melt.  :)

Fall Fun!!

Playing in the leaves is the best!!

Nothing better than dumping leaves on your little sister!

Sarah looks just like Caroline in this picture!

With Charlie and Hannah, friends that moved to Texas.

First Day of School

School started back in September.  Here are the first day of school photos.  It's hard to believe we have a 2nd and 3rd grader this year!!  Where does the time go...


I guess I should take more time to update this blog if I'm going to do it!  There are many times when I feel like no one reads it, but we do find it fun to look at as a family so I'm going to try and keep it current. :)

Anyway, we've been busy since I last posted.  Kids are in school, dance competitions, soccer games, piano lessons, Girl Scouts, choir at church, Thanksiving, Christmas....

So, I hope to have a few posts out in the next few days to start filling in the gaps over the last three months.


Brian, Laura, Caroline, Julia and Sarah Grace

First Haircut

Sarah Grace had her first haircut right before her 2nd birthday. It went very well. Ms. Dawn, our hair dresser, is awesome with kids and does a great job.
All done! So pretty.

Fun with Paint

Sarah Grace started it all by painting herself with sidewalk paint. Well, Mommy decided it was ok for everyone to get messy...her included!!

Wow, that was lots of fun! All the girls got a bath that night.

4th of July

Both girls walked in the 4th of July parade in Brookfield.

Julia walked or danced with B'Dazzle Dance group.
Caroline walked with girl scouts.

Both older girls went to the fireworks with Brian. It was too late for Sarah Grace. Maybe next year.

Vacation Bible School

Our church does VBS (Vacation Bible School) every summer and the kids have a blast. It is great watching them dance, sing, and do activities related to how awesome God is in their lives.

This year we did Babobab Blast. It was a blast :) Here are our three at the front of the church with the different animals they met in the Babobab tree.

Packer Family Day

We took Caroline and Julia to the Packer Family Day at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. They had been wanting to go to see the "Go Packers" (as they call them) play. Because they can never make it through an entire game, we thought this would be perfect. And the tickets were only $10 each!!

They have fun family activities all day and then the team plays a scrimmage against themselves. The night ends with fireworks.

This was cool because you go to try and jump up and do the Lambeau Leap. It is higher and harder than it looks!!
Been Bag toss before we went into the stadium.

I keep remembering back to the first time Grandpa Jim saw Caroline in the hospital as a little baby. He had his denim Green Bay Packer shirt on. These girls were destined to be Packer fans!!
We got the posters and pom-poms before we got in the stadium. The side Julia is holding says "Use your Outside Voices".

One of the best parts was watching the fireworks around the stadium to music. It was a great way to send a fun day. We will be back next year...possibly with Sarah Grace. Thanks Grandma Weber for watching Sarah so we could enjoy our time with the big girls.

Julia's Birthday

We had a family lunch at our house before Julia had her "friend" party at the Y. She got lots of cool gifts!! Mom and Dad even made the cakes!

We played in the rec room, went swimming and had cake. It was an awesome birthday party.

Happy 7th Birthday Julia!!

We love you lots.
