Puppy cuteness :)

OK, so he isn't technically a puppy...but how cute is this picture of Gabe and Diesel?  We got really lucky when we rescued Diesel, he is the sweetest most gentle dog.  Perfect for my kids and our family!!

Race day!

This past weekend we had a great time doing a 2 mile race and the kids did a fun run.  It was a really neat race because they had a special division for moms that were pushing jogging strollers.  I pushed Gabe and Leah in the jogger and Hannah ran along with me.  She ran the first mile of the race and then sat on the front of the stroller for the second half of the race :)  It was chilly but we had a great time!  And I got first in the jogging stroller division.  I have to say I felt really cool!  
 Leah all bundled up and staying warm in the stroller :)
 Hannah and I in the fun run.
 Gabe and Hannah running their little hearts out :)
 Hannah, Gave and Zane.  Zane is my friend Tanyas little boy and he did the fun run too.  Isn't he a cutie?!
 Tanya and I finishing the race!  Go moms!!
 He had so much fun!!
 She was cold and a little grumpy at this point :)
 Me and my running buddies.
My parents cam and watched us run!  Those are some really dedicated grandparents!

Trick or Treat...Smell my feet :)

This year for Halloween I really wanted to do a theme with the kids.  I thought it would be really fun to match them up :)  But they were not really into it, and what fun is Halloween if your mom makes you dress up in costume that you don't love?  So instead this year we had a gingerbread baby, Fiona from Shrek and Link from Legend of Zelda.  I was super proud of myself because I only spent about $15 total on their costumes!  I got Hannah's Fiona at the surplus store for $4 (score!!) and I made Gabe's and Leah's.  I got the fleece for theirs when it was marked down really cheap at Joanns :)  

 Gingerbread baby!
 I love this picture :)
We are all looking at the camera!  Woo-hoo!

We had trick or trunk at our church inside because it was nasty weather outside.  The kids had a fantastic time and we didn't even have to freeze :)

Zoo Day :)

Today was such a fun day!  Nick took the day off of work and we loaded the kids up in the van and went to the zoo.  It has been such nice weather this week and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.  Warm and sunny with a nice doesn't get much better than that!  Here are some pictures from our day :)
 Combing the goats at the petting zoo.
 These bears were play was really fun to watch :)
 Gabe, very intensely checking out one of the animals.
 Such a silly you notice she has no shoes :)
 Leah was so good the entire day.  Nick and I took turns wearing her in the carrier.  I made sure that she got in some pictures, because I always feel like she get's left out of pictures, since she is usually in the carrier with me and I am taking the pictures.
 Daddy and his two biggest monkeys!
 This is what I get when I ask them to smile nice lol.
 Believe it or not this was the best of the pictures of me and the kids....oy vey!

 So silly!!
 Isn't this disgusting?!  He looks like he is trying to reach out and get you...YUCK!!
 LOVE this picture!!
Adorable koala bear :)

I am so thankful for days like today where we can all relax and simply spend time as a family.  It really makes me appreciate the blessings that my husband and children are!

I cannot believe that my baby is crawling!  (Insert sobbing here...)  She is not allowed to be growing up this fast :(  She thinks she is really big stuff lol, and is getting closer and closer to keeping up with her big sister and big brother :)
