Family Pictures 2012

It has been a very long time since I have posted anything on my blog!  I have many reasons and then every time I sit to blog I get taken away and have multiple blogs started and never posted.  So then I never return and post.  Then I just never came back.  However, for my Birthday Heath gave me a gift certificate for family pictures.  So never a better time to post then to show off my wonderful family.  Ethan has never made it on the blog and he is over a year and a half now.  He looks just like daddy and brother!  He keeps us very busy, making this a very challenging and fun picture adventure!!  Thanks for the wonderful gift honey!  I love you!

Triston is 5!

I cannot believe our little boy is 5! December is quite busy for us with Triston's party (the first weekend in December), Heath's Birthday (December 13th), Triston's Birthday (December 22nd) and then Christmas! We stay very busy in December! This past year has been quite a roller coaster for us! Here are a couple pictures of our 5 year old.

To wake Triston up on his Birthday I sang "Happy Birthday" and told him it was snowing for him on his Birthday. He was so excited he jumped out of bed and ran to the window. He was so excited! His Birthday fell on a Tuesday, a pre-school day, it was his share day and snack day! So he got to take a toy and snack, muffins and bananas, and cupcakes. What a great day! Heath brought him into school that day. He said when he walked into the class room all the kids and teachers started singing "Happy Birthday"! Heath said the expression on his face was priceless. He had a great Birthday! We love you our little miracle!

Grandma and Grandpa got Triston a new BSU jersey! Along with 5 gifts inside of 5 boxes each with a $5.00 inside! What a lucky boy!

Triston and our 5 month old puppy Sally. They are like 2 peas in a pod!

Triston's 5th Birthday Party


Spider-man Party

December and cold, however, the kids all loved the huge Spider-man bounce house and slide!

This awesome cake was made by my wonderful Friend Emily! (Thanks Em!)

This was the first year we have had a party at our house. Triston insisted we had it at home this year. Heath and I were a little nervous about how it would all go, but the kids all seemed to have fun and that is all that matters.

GO ORIOLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Triston started T-Ball!! It is so cute to see them in their uniforms. He really enjoys playing. It is keeping us very busy! We have a game one day a week day, usually Monday, practice Wednesday, and a weekend game on Saturdays.

Passing time waiting to bat!

I am so proud of Triston! They are all doing really well! He has a great coach and has a lot of fun with his team!
Last Saturday our game was canceled due to weather, so this Saturday we have pictures at 8:30am, a game at 9:00am and a second, make up game at 2:oopm. It is going to be a long day! We will see how it goes!

Easter Bunny Train Ride

I know I am way behind! Time gets away from me fast. Around Easter time we took Triston and his friend Charlie on a Easter Bunny train ride.

The 2 boys waiting to get on the train!

We bought each of them a train whistle! (Sorry Tiff!)

It is so hard to get a picture of both of them smiling!

The Easter Bunny was on the train visiting all the kids.

Triston was disappointed after he only got 2 eggs on the egg hunt. Each child was supposed to get 10 each. Triston got 2 and Charlie got 1.

We sat in the open car for most of the ride. It was beautiful and the boys had fun.
