Cavin's First Haircut!

The Last of his curls :(

Hello my new little man!

Well, we did it....I couldn't bare the shag anymore, so I gave Cavin his first haircut! I loved his curls, but they were getting too long, especially when they were wet in the bath! He looks like a little boy now :( where did my baby go??!!!

Happy Father's Day!!

I just wanted to take a minute to wish my Father, Father-in-law, and of course Ragnar a Happy Father's Day! Thank you for the influence you are in my life, I hope it is a wonderful day!

My Dad....the one who loved me first, and has taught me the most. I am so grateful for your lessons of hard work. You are always there for me and know what to say. You are always giving your best!

Hellmut, my Father-in-Law. He has always been so welcoming and accepting of me. He is a good man who I enjoy spending time with and makes me laugh. Thank you for helping mold Ragnar into the man he is.

And of course....Ragnar. The man who is the Father of my children, who gave me the chance to become a mother. Thank you for your constant support and love of me. Mostly, thank you for knowing the importance of mother and fatherhood and encouraging me to stay home to teach our children!
I love you all, thank you for all you do for me in my life!

A "Rashful" Week

This week Ella woke up one morning with this horrible rash! She has had it for a few days, but the Dr. said it would run its course and she should be fine, she just looks bad (it's kinda hard to really see it from the pics!)! So because we look like we have a "diseased" child we have stayed mostly to ourselves. I had to work a full day on Friday and now I can officially appreciate the mothers who have to work. I am so grateful that I am able to stay home with my children! Anyway, tonight we had a pizza party and watched Madagascar 2! We had a fun time and Cavin is now officially going to be a sumo wrestler! He is now 14 months old and ate 3 pieces of pizza! Crazy huh! He loves to eat, so let's just hope that he loves to exercise too! (Oh and ignore the Belle bib, that's what you get for having a big sister!) We love those two munchkins and they make life exciting!

A Week From Down Under!

This week past week has been one from ****....well you know where! Cavin was recovering from surgery when he got sick with the flu and then I think he also has teeth coming in. He has been one trooper, recovering from all those things until the last few days, when I think his body has had enough. The hospital called and informed me that the stomach flu went around the office the day I brought Cavin in and that he might have been exposed...well he was and now, Ella had it, then Ragnar, then Natalie my sister, then my dad, then both my niece and nephew, and LET'S JUST PRAY it stops there! My goodness within 5 days it has been a beast! I feel horrible that one little guy could bring that much illness! Anyway, it was awful and then the hospital called and said that he might have been exposed to another illness on that day as well... it is supposed to take 12-14 days to find out if he indeed got that as well....oh man...I thought they were one of the #1 children's hospitals in the country! I'm sure glad his surgery went well! Ahhhh, I am so glad last week is over!
