Apples Anyone?

So...I gave my kids each a muffin...buying some time for me to go outside and clean up some toys from an afternoon of outside play with their cousin...and hold off dinner until Matt got in from the chicken we could see him before his "next" appointment...might have been gone 5 minutes, 7 minutes tops, and came in to find my 19 month old Campbell, sitting ON TOP of her high chair tray, with 7 apples sitting in front of her, each with a few bites out of them. Granted she does LOVE apples, and she has an ear infection, so how hard could I be on her? And, I, afterall am the one who didn't strap her in, just figuring the muffin would be all I needed...Boy was I wrong. Came in to see Kaden on the floor talking sweetly to Calli, and Kaycee upstairs playing "dolly" completely oblivious to anything that was going on, and Campbell eating some good apples.

So, we all grabbed an apple, and started munching...and took the opportunity for a photo shoot. :) Life is too short not to take full advantage of this funny moment...(just as long as it doesn't happen again anytime soon).

And, I couldn't leave Calli out...Calli at 9 days old with Kaden loving her.

More JOY!

Kaycee and Calli posing for a quick shot with Auntie Meg...

Me...looking a bit tired?...posing with my cute kids...Kaden (5), Kaycee (3 1/2), Campbell (19 months), and Calli (4 days old)...This has all been a bit chaotic, but today was a much better day...I was feeling a lot better and much more like myself. Look at all my BLESSINGS...We're just missing daddy here. :)
My uncle Galen and Aunt Deborah, from California, just happened to be in town...they don't usually get a glimpse of my babies until they are a bit more grown. How special they could visit Calli.

Meet our new sister!

The kids returned home last evening, and we had time to fit in a quick photo shoot. They are loving every minute of her, and love to hold her and give her kisses...we'll see how long that lasts. :) She is such a content baby, I hope that continues too. :)

She's Here...

We wanted to share our precious angel with you. We welcomed Calli Ann into the world this morning at 10:34 a.m. She weighed in at 9 lbs. 3.5 oz. and was 21 inches long. My labor was short and sweet, even though it was 11 days off the mark. :) She really does not look to be overdue at all. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers. We are so thankful and excited she is here, and can't wait for you to catch a glimpse.

no news.

No news. No baby. Thanks for checking. Matt had hay to bale anyway. :)
