hugs



Harkin loves giving hugs to people. Lately he has become very attached to Landon. He asks him to help with everything and play with him all the time. He is such a sweet little guy and just adores his big brothers. They are sweet in return. This is one of the many benefits of homeschooling. Forming a god bond between family members. If the boys were at school all day Harkin would miss them terribly and be lost without them. I love that they have this time together.

keeping busy


What my big boys do to keep themselves entertained and active during the bitter cold days of winter.

good news

Eric's brother and girlfriend came for their yearly visit. This time there was cause for celebration! They are now engaged. Yeah! So there will be a wedding in our future. The boys are very excited about it all. We had a fun visit, although it was so quick.

the newest sweater or house coat


I finished this sweater/coat for Harkin just last week. It had been slow going, since I started in August. I kept taking breaks. For the holidays, the baby and such. He absolutely loves it and wants to wear it every day. I was afraid it would be too small when in actuality it is a bit big. It falls off the shoulders. I think I will add another button closer to the top so it stays on better. It will be good for a spring type jacket, but for now we are calling it his house coat. An extra layer while the temps are below zero is always nice.

tub time



Both babies are loving the tub. Harkin has a blast in there. Swimming and pouring, while Issabelle was still and quiet. Just "soaking" it all up.

this little lady

Our sweet girl is 3 weeks old already. She is weighing in at 10 lbs 12 ounces. And she is starting to outgrow the 0-3 months clothing. We are all getting adjusted to the lack of sleep. She loves to be held all night long, but will sleep in her bed during the day. It will work itself out one day.

She currently is being treated fro reflux, since she was spitting up so much and it kept coming out of her nose. My poor baby.  The Dr. says that she will outgrow it eventually.

The boys are loving her dearly. They get very concerned when she starts to cry. They love holding her and giving her kisses. Jaxson is a bit indifferent to her. Just another monkey he thinks.

Mama and Daddy are so in awe of her and love snuggling with her late at night when all the big brothers are sleeping. Her tiny hands and sweet smell are just a joy. So grateful that she decided to join our family.
