Praising the Lord!

Momma, why are her hands up over her head?"-Andrew..."I don't know" I replied...."well, maybe she is praising the Lord."-Says Andrew....yes, I'm sure that is it! Even as she sleeps! :)

I love the sweet things that Andrew says. Almost every day he tells me "Mommy, Claire looks cute today...she is a cute baby!" While Mimi was still here he told her if she needed to go take a shower he would hold Claire for her. He is definately her champion. He wants to be right where she is all the time....talking to her and alerting me when she caughs or sneezes or starts to squawk because she wants her Mommy...sooo cute!! Andrew loves his little Claire!

Boys day out...Girls day in!

Papa called today and asked if the boys wanted to meet him in Stillwater this afternoon for some Cowboy baseball.....so the boys put on their orange and headed out for the afternoon while us girls enjoyed some down time at home. How cute are these boys!! Looove them!!

13 Days old!

Little Claire and her first skirt! 13 days! I cannot believe that she is 13 days old! One week tomorrow! Wowzers! Today her umbilical cord fell off! She is such fun and such a cutie! I ventured to Stillwater yesterday for the first time with Andrew, Abigail and Claire to run a few errands...wow, after just an hour I was worn out! We got all that we set out to do except finding some sandals for Abigail, but I guess that will have to wait. We had a huge praise this week....God provided enough money back on our taxes to fix the pool!!...when I told Andrew this he told me, "Mommy, you can use my money in my piggy bank too!" What a sweet boy! Spring is in the air! I seriously hope that the cold weather they are predicting for next weekend is wrong....I would really like to have Andrew's birthday party outside...but I guess we will wait and see. The Tumlison family is coming on Friday to stay the weekend! They are our good friends that are missionaries in Honduras. They will be speaking at church on Sunday evening! So excited to see them and love on them! Daddy has been promising the boys a tree house....maybe construction will begin today..it is absolutely beautiful outside today!

First Day of School at Home

Andrew's first day of school at home. He drew a spaceship! Soo cool!

Abigail is loooving "And-jew" is home.

Poor Claire's bilirubin count was still high on Monday when we went to the doctor so we have had to do light therapy which she doesn't like much. We are praying that it will be better tomarow so she won't have to do it any more.

This girl loves to play the piano and sing...so funny!

"We love because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19

Happy Valentine's Day! This morning the kidos woke up an had a Valentine's Day Card and goodies at the table waiting for them! Andrew got a pair on new orange boots! Carson got an OSU t-shirt and jacket and Abigail got a cute puppy that talks and flaps its ears! What a fun day! This is a special day for Dustin and I too! 15 years ago today a scared, young boy brought me a rose and asked me to go on a date....our journey officially began...I can not believe it has been 15 years! I am so thankful for my wonderful husband and for the most awesome plans the Lord put into place today 15 years ago! My cup is overfloweth with the blessings the Lord has bestowed upon us time and time again!

Little Claire 5 days old!

The Big Sister

Abigail loves baby Claire! I have been trying to take alot of pictures of Claire and Abigail has been right at my side the whole time posing and saying "cheese" to get her picture taken too! Soo cute!

The girls

Claire IsabelAbigail Ruth

Claire 5 days old (7 pounds 6 ounces)

Abigail 5 days old (8 pounds 15 ounces)


Dustin built a sled for the boys and off they went to enjoy the snow! Carson has outgrown his boots so we had to put plastic bags around his shoes. Dustin said that when they pulled up to the hill Andrew saw some highschool kids sledding down and said,"I am NOT doing that!"....But they did...until they got too cold!

Mimi to the rescue

Mimi came and stayed to help us adjust to life with baby Claire! What a blessing! We sure love our Mimi!

Life with Claire
