What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

i love you "THIS" much :-)

We have lots and lots of pictures to share!!

Charli is full of energy...and starting to become SUCH a show off. Mom, Dad...I am sorry for everything that I can remember getting in trouble for when I was 5 and 6. But really, I was 5 and 6, not 3!!!!!!!!! Anyway....

Today was a fun-filled day for Charli! After church we went back in the afternoon for the fall festival and she has a great time! After too much sugar, the down-hill slide of that and tears we went to visit the goats! She got to spend some time with grandma and grandpa and that "made her happy". Tomorrow starts another week full of our new wonderful life of four :-)

Harper cuddled up for a nap at grandma and grandpa's with grandpa's Harley Davidson blanket! I am not saying he is going to be a rider or anything, but grandpa...he fell right asleep when that orange and black was snuggled on him!

they seem to speak the same language :-)
(and that is "we love grandma"!)

the first and maybe the only picture of the three of them!! Sorry your eyes were closed grandpa, but since Charli was not even in the house it was a moment far and few between!

Look how happy she makes him!! If only she would understand that he needs some "space"!


no words needed here!

baby blues

hello there!

he was so happy tonight!!

the two kids playing...holding hands...while over-protective dad watches in the background!! ;-)

these two are best buds!

many people think that his eyes will stay blue?!! Charli's are going from green to brown, so we will see!!

baby kittens were there today too!

Charli and Daddy!

Charli and Liam

Elizabeth, Charli, and Liam getting ready for the hay-rack-ride


getting ready to play musical chairs!


the pumpkin she made!! Curly hair little monster!

eating the cookie she made!!

making it with such detail!

making her spider with all different colored legs! spooky!

where is Harper!!? There are so many sitting places on our living room floor it is hard to know where either of them may be at any given second!! But, if you need help he is in the green chair in front of the curtains - he is the boy in blue and brown strips!

Harper in his all Micah outfit!! the hat, pants, and shirt are all his! Thanks Trisha :-)

Charli let Harper lay in her beanbag chair from her cousin Colton - she really is a great sharer with him!!

all Charli!! She is starting to look "funny" without her glasses on!

I can just see the love when these two look at each other. Let me rephrase that, I can just see the love "for now" when these two look at each other! These are the moments I will come back to in a few months when he is bugging her by taking her toys, ruining her lego tower, pulling her hair, touching her, etc!

yes Delaine...this is cereal. Sorry.
He was so happy to eat it, and did so like a champ. He is a growing boy, and all caught up in size to his cousin Braxton!

Harper's new bed?!! Do-Do-Do-Do-Dora!


so much love in one little tent! me!!!!

FUN PICTURES!!!!!! It does seem different without her glasses on, I am so used to them! Glad she likes her little brother so much! Looks like he REALLY likes to eat cereal..we better up Braxton's amount so Harper doesn't out weigh him:) Can't wait til they start playing together...and Charli telling them what to do, how to do it, and when they can do what!

We so enjoy having you visit us! Grmpa P says that when he looks into Harper's eyes it is like he is seeing himself :o) You are all such a blessing!

It was fun having Charli "help" me sew yesterday. It won't be long and I will be able to teach her (I told her she had to be at least 5!)

Thank you for sharing your lives with us! XXXXOOOO

P.S. The costumes are FINISHED!
