It could have been so much worse!

While I was cutting Rob’s hair, Madisyn asked me to give her a haircut. Before I got a chance to, I noticed a random cut about two inches beyond her forehead (she had her hair pulled back). Upon closer inspection, I noticed the whispies on her forehead cut straight across! I questioned her and sure enough, she told me that she had cut it because she wanted a haircut. Needless to say, I wasn’t happy and we had a talk about A) Not cutting her hair and B) Not touching the scissors (my fault for leaving them out after Rob’s haircut). She’s so sweet though and kept saying, “Mommy, I’m really sorry.” Of course we forgave her and I still gave her the much anticipated haircut. We officially survived our first (and hopefully only) child self haircut.

Here’s she and her friend, William, watching the Rockford vs. Hudsonville football game. What a game! For those of you who don't know, Hudsonville is ranked first in the state in D2 and Rockford is ranked first for D1. Needless to say... Rockford won :) GO RAMS!

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.
