Rob's off-roading adventure

Rob took Dan and Allison off-roading a couple of weeks ago and had an extremely muddy truck to show it. Notice the missing guard in the front :) Although they got a visit from the cops while out there, they still had a great time.

Christmas gifts and dancing

Here's Madisyn playing with her tent that she got from Aunt Rachelle and Uncle Elliot.

Here she is playing with one of the many puzzles that she got (this one was from Grandma Dykema). She absolutely LOVES doing puzzles!

She impressed us with her dance moves the other night. It was extremely humerus, she was a natural at "shaking it!" Thanks to Allison for teaching her some of her best dance moves :)


Here's an updated tummy picture, the BIGGEST change yet ;) It's hard to believe we have almost three months to go!

So here's a little recap...

(8 weeks, 12 weeks, 17 weeks, 20 weeks, 24 weeks, 28 weeks)


I'm finally getting around to sharing a few Christmas pictures. Madisyn absolutely loved Christmas this year! We had many wonderful celebrations! Madisyn's latest and greatest is counting to 10, it's SO cute!

Pregnancy update: everything is going great, baby has still been moving a lot :) I'll get an updated tummy picture soon.

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.
