Family Photo

We made a trip to Oregon in September of last year, when Olivia was just under 2 weeks old, for Lacey and Erik's wedding. This picture was taken at their wedding.

It's been quite a long time since I've posted anything. Life has been a bit crazy, and we kinda run into ourselves coming and going. I've always said the one thing I'll never give up is my blog, because as soon as I quit posting frequently, I won't get back into it. Well, that's what happened. 
It is my intention to get caught up... eventually. The most life altering event for us has been the welcoming of a new little member to our family.
Olivia Ruth Starr 
made her grand entrance on August 30, 2016 at 5:40pm.
She weighed 5lbs. 10oz, and was 18 1/2 inches long.
She has added so much joy to our family and we are so thankful for her.
Her siblings couldn't wait to hold her.
 Natalie wasn't feeling the greatest, so we opted to have her wait until she felt a little better before she held the baby. She was okay with that. She was still interested in how it looked for her being the baby still anyway.
 Daddy was smitten at first sight!

White Christmas

 This is what we woke up to this morning... a beautiful blanket of snow covering the ground!
Snow can accumulate fast around here. It's so exciting to actually be getting a white Christmas!
Ready for Christmas

We got surprised with a hug box from Oregon. Grandpa and Grandma sent presents. The kids were so excited to open it!
 Presents for everyone!
 It's starting to snow! The trees are my favorite. They look like they came out of a painting!

AFC Christmas Program

The kids singing in their Sunday School program. 
Kaitlyn got a solo. She did really good!
 Talon getting into the motions!
 Then there's always those couple of kids that make up their own motions!
 Having fun with my new camera. My baby boy. What a handsome guy!
