Mommy woke up on December 11th to a lot of cheers from lots of children and a smiling husband. Happy Birthday to the most amazing person in the entire world!J.T. was dressed in her best Princess outfit to

Sacked Out!

Little girls try to keep up with the big boys and stay up no avail. It does help to have loving arms to fall asleep into!
Wonder where the other girl is...and if she faired any better...

Fall Pictures at School

We are a little late in posting this one since it was taken around Halloween but we think that the cuteness of our two little Halloween Princesses far outweighs our tardiness!Both L.C. & J.T. look adorable and their big, beautiful blue eyes really stood out with the pop of yellow from the mum and the black shirts. They are simply adorable little "spooky" Halloween Princesses!

I.C. received his 150 point Accelerated Reader award.

we can get new ones for him! We are very proud of him!
