Just updating!

Chase was baptized on his 8th birthday (January 22). It was such a special day for our family. Congrats Chase on a great decision!

Kate has been begging me everyday to "Run in the rain with her boots"...

2nd Grade Open House. Chase and his teacher, Mrs. Johnson.

Kate loves to go to "Chasey's school"

I can't wait until she is 16!!!!

Chase's first Blue and Gold Banquet as a cub scout. He and Hank had to bake and decorate a cake together (without the help of mom!)...they did a good job and they even cleaned up the mess!

Chase earned his Bobcat award at the banquet!

I had to include a picture of Nolan in all his camo gear...always an adventure on the vacant lot!

The Girls...

It has been an exciting week of "potty training" at our house! I will say, girls are WAY easier to potty train than boys! Here is Kate enjoying her Dora popsicle after filling an entire Dora potty training sticker chart! YAY Kate! (and what would I have done without Dora!?!?!)

Happy Valentine's Day

I think this is one of Lily's best pictures yet...love this girl!

Kate...still with the "paci" and all her dolls/animals... she has reverted back to everything that brings comfort now that her diapers are gone!

A much needed beach trip!

The newest beach beauty!

Hangin' with the boys!

Nolan doing his "karate moves" at the waves

Chase cool!

Boogie Boarding was a real hit!

Couldn't get enough sand!

More and more sand!

Back to School!

Anxiously waiting for the bus...

Chase is in 2nd grade...what is happening to the time?

Nolan has finally started Kindergarten and he couldn't be more excited.

He loves his class and his teacher!

And they're off...what am I going to do with 2 girls at home?

Kate has answered that question.

Our house now involves a lot of kitchen and house playing.

And we couldn't be happier!

Newest pics (and some older ones)

Baby Lily is really a good baby, however, when the camera comes out she screams!
Guess who LOVES her baby sister??

A desperate attempt to get some pictures of the girls in their matching dresses proved too much work for all involved!

Hates the "sink bath"...thankfully we have moved to the baby bath.

My favorite picture! Nolan wanted to come with Hank to the hospital to see baby Lily each time Hank would come up. This occassion, he came alone with Hank and it was such a special time!

My next favorite picture...the peeping sister wanting every part of this new situation.

Lily Armstrong

Lily was born on May 31 at 6:30pm after my water broke while I was cleaning the bathroom floor (no joke!). She was 8 lbs 5 oz and 20 1/2 inches long.

Kate is not getting the attention she needs as shown here...she got herself dressed for church today!

I promise more pictures will be uploaded when I have more than 5 minutes at a time!
