Halloween 2015

Anthony, Family, Grace, Holidays, Nicholas No Comments

We had quite a few Halloween festivities at the end of October (although – we never made it to the pumpkin patch and we actually live right down the street from Oma’s now! Oh well, there is always next year).

The boys’ school had a Halloween carnival last weekend – it was a fun night of games, friends, and food! (And Grace loved the shaved ice).

Happy 8th Birthday Nicholas!

Family, Nicholas No Comments

It’s true…tomorrow (Oct 29th), our 1st baby, will be 8 years old ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ

I always love to relive & remember the day the kids were born. In Nicholas’ case, it was my hardest, longest & most painful labor. I am pretty sure that is because I was induced with pitocin. 19 hours after the fun started in the hospital, I finally got to the point when the nurses said I could push. I think they were a bit surprised when I ‘got it’ after the first contraction- I didn’t need a lot of training for some reason (I was HIGHLY motivated to get the baby OUT by then).

Less than 20 minutes of pushing and a beautiful, perfect baby BOY was laying on my chest. Joe & I were both in tears (mine might have been a bit more from pain/exhaustion, his were happy emotions).

An Overdue Update

Anthony, Elizabeth, Family, Grace, Joe, Nicholas 1 Comment

Last post, I promised updates on a few things. That was over a month ago – eek!

First things first – AJ’s eye/face injury. It was bad. He tripped at school and basically face planted into a cement bench. Dr checked it out…said it would be a fairly large bump for quite some time. ย Needless to say, AJ doesn’t run anywhere near that bench at school anymore.

Let’s see if I can catch us up to October.

The boys are both doing pretty well in school. They both have homework, and thanks to our new ‘homework center’ at the new house – it seems easier to get the weekly work done.

We celebrated Uncle Bill’s 60th bday with a surprise party in their backyard (food, drinks and games). All the little cousin got together for a picture.
