Merry Christmas

Santa, what I really could use this year are some pants!

Naughty? or Nice?

All I want for Chirstmas is my two front teeth.

Happy Halloween (a little late)

Hope you all had a very happy halloween.
From the Hanes Family SUPER KIDS!!!!!

Buggy Blanket

This blanket came from Katy's Aunt Natalie. She LOVES this blanket so much. She uses it to snuggle in when she's cold, to wrap up her various dollys and animals for "naptime," and on occasion as a table cloth for teaparties.

Princess Katie

I've been looking at the blog and it seems Katie has been kinda left out. So, I was looking through our pictures and found all these variations of Princess Katie. She loves to dress up and usually uses one of the baby towels to be her long "princess" hair. She had her first day of Pre-school this week, so stay tuned for first day pictures.

Abby's New Glasses

Well, a new year and a new prescription! Abby received a new precription for her eyes again this year, so off we went to get her some new glasses. This year we decided to get her some new frames (last ones lasted a couple of years and were done). We found some pretty hot pink BARBIE frames. Yes, I said BARBIE. The one and only. They even have the Barbie's head logo on the arms, and came with a shiny new Barbie case. She loves them. They seem very sturdy. We're hoping they will serve her well.
Isn't she cute?

First Day of First Grade!

Abby's first day of first grade was on August 17, 2009. She was so excited to start school, and HAD to have a dress for the first day. My little girl is growing up so fast.

A Real American Hero

Thanks to Aunt Natalie and Uncle Steve for a hard-"corps" T-shirt!!
Our family is so proud of their Uncle Steve as he serves our country. We miss him and hope he comes home safe and SOON.

Summer, Summer, Summer Time!!!

These little girls had quite a summer. From time at the lake, to pool parties, to just playing in the sun.........

Wouldn't it be great to be young again: just out for a walk on a beautiful, care-free, summer day?

Baby Summer

Baby Ben has really enjoyed all that summer can offer! At the lake, an afternoon nap in the shade, or a nice cool drink from the garden hose. Looks like fun doesn't it.

Little Boy Blue

Alice's quote when she sent this picture around on e-mail: "Never turn your back on the ocean, or a hungry baby who found a cupcake with blue frosting."

Birthday Cakes

These are the cakes Alice made for the girls this year (had to show these since I already showed the one that she made for Ben).
Abby turned six this year and Katie turned four.

Hanes = Hawaii

For those who weren't aware, my parents took our entire famliy on a wonderful week long vacation to O'ahu. They took their four children (and spouses) along with all the grandkids (ten in all) except for the elest grandson (Kyle Gonthier) who is currently serving The Lord as a missionary in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission.
We had a great time! Thanks Karan and Jerry Hanes (A.K.A. Mom and Dad)

These are just a few of the shots Alice took of our family during our extended family vacation in April of this year.

My Three Monkeys

This is all three of our little monkeys.
Abby-almost six,
Ben-right before first B-Day,
and Kate-about to turn four.

Happy Birthday Ben

Alice has been REALLY busy lately (with things like this picture of Ben's first birthday) so I thought I'd try and put something up on th blog for folks to look at.

This is the cake Alice made for Big Ben to destroy on his birthbay Numero Uno.
