SNOW finally!

We've been waiting and I was getting worried that this year might pass again without snowing enough to go sledding. Well my brother-law took Jaden and Jocelyn sledding behind our townhouses and Jaden busted his lip going down on his stomach. Apparently he went right into the fence. Ouch! He came home bleeding, but when I asked if he wanted to stay in he reassured me he was fine! Ok? Anyway, last year we built a snowman, but this year the snow was way too flaky. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Our townshouse with our pathetic dead tree in the front

Uncle Devin came over and took the kids out to sled and play!

Us - Jonas (he was snoozing inside. warm and cozy)

Me and my sweet sweet Jacob

Jocelyn just wouldn't give up on the snow plowing

Trust me there were about 3 other shots of her doing this!

Even though the snow was lousy for snowman Jaden wouldn't
give up. He did this for about an hour (obviously wasn't getting far)

Jocelyn wanted to clear the neighbors car too!

Jacob in his snow gear (Jaden's old coat and boots) He just
toddled around happy the whole time!

portraits of the kids!

Ryan took these of the kids in our living room with the new camera we got for Christmas! He is still practicing. I am just grateful for his efforts! Pictures mean everything to me, especially when they all grow up so fast!

funny Christmas bloopers!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

So Funny that we can never get a good picture! Now that we have this many children it's even harder. It's always very stressful, but at least we can look back and laugh at ourselves. We had to bribe the kids with suckers and Jacob didn't know what to do, he just kept crying and begging for Jaden and Jocelyn's suckers. He didn't understand that he had to wait until after the pics were taken. At least Jonas just sat there, but of course he doesn't know how to smile. Oh and I forgot to mention that we will forever know that Jacob was teething (yes STILL). I look gay in my blazer with my hair pasted to my head, but oh well. Jaden is so good looking on camera unless you tell him to smile. I guess that's what friends are for, still loving you even at your worst :)
Anyway, this is the best we can give you again. At least you can get an idea of what we look like together :)
We miss and love all of you! Thanks for visiting!
