Micah 6 months

   1/2 a year already...slow down!  His first tooth popped through during this 6th month!  Here are some pictures of Micah at 6 months!
Micah loves swinging outside in his swing.
Micah decked out in his John Deere boots. These boots were a gift from Zettie Allen for Timothy. So fun to be able to use them again!

Never get tired of this little guy's sweet smile!


Love this little face in the hat

Bathtime is sure fun

Cute little guy wrapped in his towel

Micah's first Thanksgiving. Those dimples...

Micah loves his cousin Ava!

Very happy to be with his Great-grandmma

Thanksgiving 2016

Well, I am almost a year behind in blogging so I am determined to get in the year we are actually in right now!  We had an enjoyable Thanksgiving last year!!  We truly have so much to be thankful for.  So nice to be able to have a day to relax with family. Here are a few pictures of our Thanksgiving.
It was a pretty nice day so the kids played in the yard before we went to my mom's house.  Our neighbor can gets lots of attention!

Timothy and his cute smile


Love this picture.  We are trying to get family picture, and Timothy is looking like people need to get their act together!  

It took a little to get a good picture, but this is our first Thanksgiving as a family of 7!

Gotta get in a good nap!

Halloween 2016

 I was on my own for Halloween this year as Tim was working many late nights with the election right around the corner.  So I took the older 4 kids out trick or treating while my grandma watched little Micah.  We started at mom's house and then drove over to Grandma's house.  We dropped off Micah, and then walked around the block hitting just a few houses.  The kids enjoyed it but we kept it short so they didn't get too tired!
Love the costumes they picked out.  Each year, they just pick from what we have, and it it neat to see what they come up with.  Megan was a cowgirl and took her horse that she had just gotten from her birthday!  Emily was a mommy. I am not sure what the hat had anything to do with being a mommy, but hey, she pulled it off well with her dress:)  I love how she had her strolled and a blanket over her baby.  Anna was a princess!  Timothy had a costume with Paw Patrol that a friend had given to us.  
Some cute kiddos!

We did a practice round at Nana's house. They were so excited that Nana had candy for them!

Walking around our block.  So fun!

Micah probably enjoyed hanging with his Great-grandma better than having to be strapped in a stroller!

Love  this...Emily was so tired and fell asleep with her baby laying on her:)

Girl's fall Soccer 2016

 The three girls played 2016 fall soccer.  They all enjoy soccer.  This was the first year they were all on separate teams, so it kept us busy!  Megan has been able to have the same coach every season but one I believe.  It is fun for her to have a lot of the same teammates as well for us as parents to be able to develop friendship with the parents each year.  Emily had 2 new coaches and had an enjoyable year.  Anna also had a new coach this season.  She enjoyed playing soccer again this season and started picking it up a little more.  Her team was pretty young, but she tried hard to not let the other team score.  It was fun to see more of her competitiveness come out:)
First soccer game of the year!


Ready for her warmups

Kick it hard!

Always plenty of friends to play with during soccer games for the ones not playing at the moment!

Nice Selfie, Emily!

Go Megan...#8

Emily is ready for the ball

Megan's 8th birthday

Megan turned 8 Oct. 29, 2016 (yes, need to get into the right year at least on this blog).    We always love celebrating birthdays. Megan is our sweet first born, and it is hard to believe how fast each year goes by.  Megan loves life and often has a smile on her face.  She loves school, church, playing outside, and playing with legos has been a favorite this year too.  She has a great imagination.  She loves helping out.  I pray this sweet girl will continue to grow in her love for the Lord and others!  We got just a few pictures of her special day.
Megan's birthday was on a Saturday and it was the last soccer game of the fall. 
Megan and Emily are great friends who have their moments, but usually do pretty well together.  They are enjoyed a new lego set together here!

Auntie KK always bring so much fun to our house when she visits.  She helped Megan have a fun day on her birthday by playing games!

And of course, Auntie KK is wonderful at painting nails as well!

Megan loved skyping with G & G Armstrong on her birthday! I love her smile here as she talks to them.

We had Pizza Hut pizza for her birthday.  Tim was working crazy hours as this was right near the election so we took the easy route of ordering pizza!  

Opening presents is always fun!

Megan requested ice cream cake...She enjoyed it a lot!
