Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today my daddy turns 29 years old! Just want him to know how much I love him. He is the best dad ever... He is always playing and wrestling with me and teaching me cool things. Yesterday he even taught me how to cook! (Don't worry the oven really wasn't on)

Today my mommy took me to school so that I could surprise him with a balloon and card, but once I got there I forgot what I was supposed to do (the computers were so cool to look at) so mommy did it for me! But I sure do love my daddy - he's a great example to me of what to do and be when I grow up! Here are some more fun Pictures of me and my daddy:

Third Time's the Charm!

So, we've been trying to take some family photots for awhile now... wanted something new for Christmas cards. Anyways, we finally set up a session with a friend from school and church for Saturday, December 1 and wouldn't you know it rained 2 inches that day! So, we rescheduled for the next Monday and then I got sick... so we rescheduled for yesterday and FINALLY we were able to do them! It was supposed to rain all day but luckily it cleared up! Jen did such a great job - she had to chase (literally) Colton around to try and take pictures of him! He is such a "busy" kid - seriously I can't remember the last time he sat still for anything. Here's a link to her website so you can see our cutie pics! Oh, and just know that our Christmas cards will be coming soon. Hopefully before Christmas, but don't hold your breath - ha ha!

Where's the Ark?

Wow! We've gotten a lot of rain these past couple of days! It has rained more in the last 2 days than the previous 11 months put together.

Quick update on Emily. She's doing great - She's home recuperating now and making daily trips to see Kinsley in the NICU. Kinsley is doing good too. She's back up to her birth weight and continuing to gain. They're hoping she'll be coming home for Christmas.

Colton and I have been fighting a cold all week and we officially lost last night! When Colton can't breathe through his nose, he thinks he's dying - ha ha. So, we both had rough nights and days today. Between the colds and the rain Colton is feeling a little couped up!

One more piece of news - Colton has a new trick... When we have our family prayer we always ask him to fold his arms, then we try to fold them for him and whoever's turn it is to pray starts before Colton realizes whats happening. The other day we knelt down to pray and as usual asked Colton to fold his arms and then HE DID! We were so surprised! Yeah, something is sinking in!!
