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.
