Colony Christmas 2007

We went to the Colony Christmas Parade. It was a chilly evening but fun was had by all. We got to take our friends David and Abby. Not sure I would be able to handle five kids.... but with grandma's help we can do anything.
After the parade we went out and laid on the grass by the libary and watched the fireworks. I really don't think my children will ever lay in the grass in December in Alaska to watch the fireworks agian
Love, parades, and candy,

Annual Christmas Church Dinner

Our church has an annual Christmas dinner where they decorate, the teens serve and then they take family photos. It was a great evening to get us in the Christmas spirit. The boys loved it.
Love and smiles,

Baby Eli the First 3 Months

It is hard to believe Eli is now four months. He is so sweet natured. He only feels the need to cry when he is in his carseat, and only a small amount at that. He loves his big brother Caleb, smiles each time he walks in the room. He loves his grandparents who have all come to see him. He loves to snuggle. He especially loves when his daddy wrestles him.

He is now giggling when you tickle him, reaches for items, tries to hold a bottle, shakes his rattle, drools, chews on his fist, sits up with support, loves to lay on his belly, showing interest in the crawling position and babbles every chance he gets. He is now 28.5 inches and 18.5 pounds. A very large boy for his age.

Love and 3 months,

Caleb is Five!!

Caleb celebrated his fifth birthday party, just like his fourth.... with a pirate party. It was a great time, Caleb got a .22 from his dad. We had a fun time decorating and creating our own treasure cake. And what party of Caleb's would be complete without a pinta.

A half hour after everyone left our power when out. Caleb thought it was so cool that we were all going to sleep in the living room. He thought this would make a great birthday tradition, we'll see!

Love, five year olds, and pirate eyebrows and mustaches,
