Around the house

A common sight at our house.... Talon with a football.  
He doesn't like to wear jeans.  He says, "Mom, when I wear my jeans, I can't slide on the floor as good on my knees!"  There's not a chance that his pants are going to last long enough to pass on to his little brother.  When I really get frustrated about it, is when he slides on the floor in his church pants.  If they sold them in disposable packs in large quantities, he would be a great candidate. Thus the saying, 'Boys will be boys'!
My brown-eyed little girl.  Hard to believe how fast she's growing up!
Some quality time with Bubby.
Talking to grandma on the phone.
All dressed up and ready to head outside.
Love this picture!
The best of friends... most of the time.
Our lazy watch dogs.

The great outdoors.... indoors

These are my little mountain climbers.  I'm not really sure where they came up with this, but their big game right now is to load up their backpacks with toys, and go climbing, hunting, camping.... and whatever else their imaginations can think up!  Sometimes Nolan is a fellow backpacker, and sometimes he is the bear or other wild animal that they are hunting or running from.
The fearless three.... off on another expedition!
Climbing the treacherous mountain

7 months old

Little Miss Natalie is 7 months old.  This girl seems to figure new stuff out every day.  She rolls and scoots all over the house, exploring new things.
She recently started eating cereal, and.... well... um... let's just say, she's not the biggest fan. I'm not surprised- her siblings didn't like it much at first either.  I don't think it's so much the taste, as it is the fact that she's eating it off of a hard plastic spoon.  The first time we tried it, she had a couple of bites, spit it all over, then proceeded to lunge for the bowl and spill it everywhere.  I guess that's what I get for attempting to feed her on the coffee table in the living room, instead of in the kitchen, eh?!
Love this slobbery little face!
Playing the piano with Mommy
She should be sleeping, but instead she's wanting to hang out and 'chat'.  Yes, she inherited my rosy cheeks!
She loves her big brother!  He spends a lot of time playing with her.
Love my girls!
Gonna be a nurse like Mommy some day?  We'll see!
My little blue-eyed pouty face
Off exploring some more
And now, off to the kitchen
Rollin'..... rollin'.....rollin'.....
Sitting up a little on her own.  It doesn't last long, but we practice.
Love all her little faces! 
She really likes to hang out under the kids table.  She even scoots it across the floor.

Playtime with Daddy

The kids love to rough house with Daddy!
I love how Kaitlyn's trying to 'rescue' her big brother.... who keeps going back to get tortured just a little more!
Group hug!
Taking a little breather
Best buds!
Katie loves her daddy!
...and these boys love their little sister!
