It's that time of year again!

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

I feel like the holiday season started early this year because we had so much snow so quickly after Halloween and everyone got in the spirit early! We have been staying with my parents for three months now, while waiting for a job transfer so we are enjoying the season's festivities with family.

Cash met Santa for the first time and he decided he's not much a fan, which I would have bet money on. But we just wanted a picture! Santa was nice enough to sneak up behind us to get this shot. Sneaky:) He said kids Cash's age are the least likely to sit on his lap. I think 18 months is a challenge for more than just Santa....

The tree is decorated and it has a lot of character this year. Holes and all. But we really love it.

There has been some baking going on. Not all of which was successful, but who needs to eat 100 cookies in the month of December anyway?!

The cousins came over and made chocolate dipped pretzels while Cash ate them:)

And we learned a new phrase..."Ho, Ho, Ho!"

May your days be Merry and Bright....

Our October

Monday, November 24, 2014

Well, we enjoyed the last of our fall this year. It snowed on Halloween and hasn't left the ground since. But weren't those leaves pretty?

A weekend spent at the cabin is always fun, even if this weekend involved a major boo boo for Cash.

Jake and I attended an out of town wedding and Cash spent the night with my Aunt Lorie. I was nervous about how he would do and it turns out he was probably better behaved than he is for us. Go figure.

We celebrated cousin, Jazi's, 12th birthday in style:)

And then...October ended, just like that.

And baby makes...FOUR!

This announcement is long overdue. We are expecting another baby in March! Yes, Cash is going to be a big brother, although he is still completely clueless. We are super excited to have a healthy little GIRL growing in there.
We are very grateful that God has blessed us with another baby and that, thus far, this pregnancy has been much easier than the last.

(20.5 weeks)

Let's  hope for less than a 9 pounder, mmkay?!

Almost 2 years ago I was 20 weeks pregnant with this guy.

Our September

We endured a lot of rain and someone danced in it....

A fun morning apple picking with friends at Friske's Orchard!

Cash, Crew and Hunter:)

Cash was crushin's on his cousin's tractor!

Bye, Bye September....Hello October!

New around here....

(Brother's wedding, August 16th)

I have not been good at updating the blog. I go back and forth with just giving up on it all together but sometimes if I can't remember a date or a stat I find myself looking to the blog for the answer. It is nice to have a bunch of information in one place so I'm going to try to keep at it.

On August 27th, we moved out of the Summerside Drive house. This was our 8th move in the 5 years we have been married. Pros. We were thankful for the sale of our house, even though we are currently in limbo regarding a job transfer and where we will end up! So, wish us the best!

15 Months Old!

Friday, September 12, 2014

(baby's first selfie)
Cash is already 15 months old, crazy.
He not only walks, but runs around, getting into everything, emptying every drawer, cupboard and closet he can reach.
He is currently 30.5 lbs, 32 7/8 in tall.
His vocabulary consists of: Mama, Dada, Nana, Papa, Layla (every dog), more, hi, buh bye, uh oh, baba, cheese, and sometimes Jazi (Yazi).
He is a little energizer bunny from morning to night and usually a good sleeper, sleeping 12-13 hours at a time. Praise God. He also takes a 2 hour nap every afternoon.
He loves dogs, climbing on his dad, being outside, his blanket and paci, his Laugh and Learn Car, and FOOD.
His favorite foods include, cheese, bananas, berries, bread, crackers, green beans and yogurt.
He has 10 teeth, 3 of which are molars that all decided to come in at the SAME time and make him very sick for a good week:(

He is an energetic, happy boy and just as cute as ever:)

Midweek Getaway

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

At the end of June (Can you tell I'm playing catch up?) we decided to get out of town for a couple of days and spend some quality time together. We started in Traverse City where we explored the beach, shopped downtown and indulged in some fabulous ice cream. Next we drove up to Northport where we took a tour through the old Grand Traverse Lighthouse. Lastly, we ended up in Leland/Fishtown which was really cool except we got rained out. So we will go back...for the wineries...without Cash:)

Cash was such a trooper and we had a great couple of days together.

4th of July

We had a low key fourth this year, but it was good.
We started the day at the Bay Harbor Parade, had lunch- where Cash made a lot of friends, took a long nap and then had a small BBQ at home.

Outside Fun

Friday, June 6, 2014

We have been trying to spend as much time outside as possible. Cash loves being outside, exploring, watching the neighbors (he's really nosey), etc.

Waving is his new fave. "Hi Mom!"

Evening golf cart rides are so exhausting.


New toys are so fun!

I feel the need to mention that he is afraid of grass. He hates the prickly feel against his legs and will NOT walk through it. He stands completely frozen and won't move. But we're working on it:) Anyone else experience this? Advice?
