June: Big Boy Undies!

Hunter is potty trained! I had been putting off trying to potty train Hunter until after the baby was born. But when he turned 3 years old I decided that it was time. He got it pretty quickly. My little boy is becoming a big boy! I can't belive it. I am so proud of him and what a good boy he is. I just had to take a pic of him in his cute new big boy undies!

Harmony Summer-time

Halle and Hunter just can't seem to get enough of their new baby sister! The often argue about who gets to hold her next, or who gets to sit by her etc...This is just a few of my favorite pics of them spending some quality time with Harmony Summer!

May 2009: Halle's last day of Preschool, and Preschool graduation...

I can't believe it Halle is already done with preschool! She seemed to little when she started! She has learned so much and made so many friends. I am so proud of her!

May 26th 2009: visit to the ZOO

We went to the Zoo with some of our friends. Halle and Hunter loved seeing the new giraffes and lions! This was Harmony's first trip to the zoo. We had a lot of fun!

Mothers Day 2009

I love Mother's Day. It is because of these special little people that I get to celebrate this wonderful day. I love my kids SO much, I don't even have the words to express it. The kids and I always say to each other "I love you so so so so so so so so so much!" I love you Halle, Hunter and Harmony!
For Mother's Day Halle made me some flower cookies with gumdrops on the top in a cute little vase, and a flower necklace. Hunter gave me an apron with his handprint outlined in paint. How cute!

(May 2009) This is what happens when you have an older brother...

So I am feeding the kids lunch one day, and I leave the kitchen to go get something. When I come back in, I find Harmony with a toy gun in her hand, a key, Hunter's blankie, and a lizard in her lap (not seen in this pic). I ask Hunter why Harmony has all that stuff in her carseat, and he simply states "cuz she needs it". What a crazy little boy! I have to admit, it is pretty funny to see my sweet little 5 1/2 week old baby girl toting a gun. And it's ironic, because I don't like the idea of my kids playing with guns. Hunter got this one (his first and only gun) for his birthday from a friend.
it looks like she has a "no nonsense" expression on her face!

May 2009: Harmony's Blessing

Harmony was blessed on May 3rd, 2009. She looked so beautiful in her blessing dress! Harmony wore the same dress that Halle wore when she was blessed.

May 2009: Halle and Hunter's Birthday Party...

Since Harmony was only a week and a half old when it was Halle's birthday, we decided to have a combined birthday party for Halle and Hunter. We planned to have a big party at the park with a pinata and games, but it ended up pouring rain that day! So, we had to change plans last minute and have the party at our house. The kids had a lot of friends over, and they had a blast! We had family parties for each of their birthdays also, they just loved having a "cousin party" too!
... getting ready for their "friend party"...

Lizzie, knocking the head right off the pinata!
Cake and icecream time!
Halle and Hunter have the cutest friends!
Althought it was a combined party, there were mostly girls here! Halle and Hunter's friends Carson, Davis, and Jackson couldn't make it to the party, so I had to take a pic of Hunter with the only other boy at the party! Here is one of Hunter and Halle's best buds, McKay.
Halle with one of her new best buddies, Ella. Nick and Ella's mom, Tammy, were best buddies at this age too! How cute!

One thing the kids had been asking for their birthdays was a scooter! They were so excited to open these presents!

May 2nd, 2009: Hunter's 3rd Birthday!

I cannot believe that my little boy is 3 already! He is such a funny, happy, stong willed, active guy! He loves to ride his bike, climb in the rocks, play basketball and football with daddy! I love you so much, Hunter! You fill our day with sunshine!
HaPpY BiRtHdAy, Handsome!

April 12th, 2009: Easter

Here we are on Easter sunday. After church we went out to Warren's sister's house where they had a big easter egg hunt for the kids and one for the adults too! We had so much fun!

Harmony's first Easter. I just love these bunny slippers! They were Halle's when she was a baby.

April 7th 2009: Halle's 5th Birthday!

I promised Halle that on her 5th birthday that she could get her ears pierced. So after Halle got out of preschool that day we all went to the mall. She was so brave, and kept a smile on her face even though we could see a tear escape her beautiful blue eyes as they pierced her ears. I love you big girl! Halle, you are so sweet, and kind to everyone. You are such a big helper to me and to your brother and sister. You have such a big heart, you're funny, and you have such a cute personality!
...before... after!

April 2009: Halle's new haircut.

I decided Halle needed a fresh new haircut, so just a few days before her 5th birthday I cut her hair. I cut 5 inches off!! All her little ringlets are gone! I think her haircut is totally adorable, but she is looking so much older! Where did my baby go?

March-April 2009: Welcome Home! Harmony's first week.

Halle and Hunter have been so excited and happy to have Harmony here! They just simply can not get enough of her. They want to hold her and look at her non stop! What an adoring big sister and big brother Harmony has. She definately has a family who loves her very much. We are so thankful for her and what a blessing she is in our lives! Here are some pics of her first week at home....
