Update

I apologize for not writing in so long! Here's a short update:

Things are going wonderfully for us (besides a sick little one)! Only four to five weeks until our ultrasound (and our true due date!). I still feel great (minus the occasional headache and a cold). There is no doubt that I'm getting bigger by the minute! I've been wearing a combination of regular pants and maternity pants, but as my friend Kate (who is due March 28) said, it's tough to find shirts long enough to fit over the top of the maternity pants. So bare with me if you see me dressed in a lot of the same clothes lately :)

We've been doing fun fall activities like going to the apple orchard with one of Madisyn's boyfriends, Patrick Janson. It was tons of fun (wish I had pictures!) and Madisyn kept pointing to the gigantic apple and saying "apple." She absolutely loved an old wagon turned into a slide! We may need to go again!

Rob and I just got back from a wonderful weekend away (celebrating our anniversary). We went to Traverse City and enjoyed wonderful meals, good shopping, brisk fall air, beautiful fall colors, and lots of quality time (although the weekend definitely flew by!). It is absolutely amazing how love can grow... I never thought I could love him more than the day we married, but day after day I am pleasantly surprised! God has truly blessed me with an amazing husband, father, and most importantly, friend.

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!







Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
