First Run

Ella is always asking me if she can go running with me. I love it, because of course I would love a daughter who would love to run with me when she is older. She is going to participate in the Rockets run on January 22nd, so I thought since I am a little "slower" due to being 5 months pregnant it would be a good time to go ahead and take her out and see how she does. She will be running a 1K, and I think she will love it. She did really good. She ran a whole lap on the track and then she took breaks here and there and would cheer herself on. She would can make it to the stop sign, then she would stop when she got there and say...I just knew I could do it...and the process would repeat. We had a fun time and I look forward to a running partner in the future :)

Christmas Sugar Cookies

It's Christmas time again and with it comes all your favorite fun traditions. For us, that means we love to break out the sugar cookies and enjoy the mess and fun. The kids had done Halloween ones this year, so they still wanted to have some bats and cats mixed in with our trees and ornaments and such. We had a fun F.H.E. and are so looking forward to having Ragnar home for 6 days. I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas.

This was one of the first times I actually saw Cavin enjoy getting messy in the flour...usually he wants to be cleaned right off.

It's a.......


We are excited to announce that our third baby will be another GIRL! We are excited to report that she is healthy and seems to have everything she is supposed to. I'm a little nervous about having two girls, because I do not do emotions, but the thought of another cute little Ella makes me excited.

A couple weeks ago our friend Jared Peterson kindly agreed to take some pictures of our family as he is practicing his portfolio. It was very nice of him, and here are some of my favorites!

Ella dragging her brother along....typical!

I love her dimple!

Our little dancing girl practicing her twirl!

He thinks he is such a big kid's so sad.

Ella's signature pose...her leg is always lifted up :)

This is Cavin's typical face :)

Ella is such a pretty girl.

Giving her brother a "squeeze" as usual!

I'll be as strong as daddy someday!
