Preschool Valentine’s Day Party by Annemarie

Posted in: Us- Feb 12, 2015 1 Comment

Since Ma and Pa were still in town, I was so lucky to be able to attend the Valentine’s Party celebration at Burke’s school today.  I fed Mallory right before I left, and knew that she would be in the best hands at the house. Burke was so excited to see me when I got there. […]

{If you’re here just for the pictures….scroll down.  They’re after a bunch of text.}   So, I think Mallory’s birth story actually started a while before she was born. With my first two pregnancies, I never once thought that I was “done” with being pregnant, and even up until the days before they were born, […]

When people have been asking me how much longer I have until my due date, and whether or not I think she might come early, my response was that we are “due” the last week of January, but I have given her permission to come anytime after around noon on Saturday (today).  I REALLY wanted […]

A few weeks ago, Janey texted me and asked if I would be up for taking some belly bump pictures.  She has been doing some experimenting with film, and was looking for a reason to practice.  If you recall, Janey took some amazing maternity pictures of me and Brett when we were expecting Burke, so […]

Pregnancy Update for Baby Girl by Annemarie

I feel like I’m doing my daughter an injustice by not documenting her time in the womb as much as I did with her older brothers. She, after all, is a girl, and might care a tad more about this kind of thing as she gets older….and alas, I’ll have to use the age old […]

Dear Blake, 23 months have flown by, but like I say (I think?) every month, you are at such a fun age right now and boy, oh boy, are we enjoying you so very much!! One of the funniest things you do lately is that, after you are dressed – which you have started to […]

Tonight was a first for our family….our first performance for one of our children. Burke’s preschool put on a lovely Christmas show for all of the families. They practiced in class the month of December…memorizing a Bible verse and a few songs. We were asked to practice with them at home too, but every time […]

Dear Blake, Whoa, the last month seems like it flew by. You’re 22 months old now….2 months away from being TWO. Can you believe it? I sure can’t. You are such a big boy now, and you just want to keep doing things that bigger boys do all the time. One transition that you, and […]

As soon as I heard that Jen was having her baby early, and due to some really unexpected circumstances, it was on my heart to make her baby girl a quilt. I went into my craft room to survey what I had to work with, and remembered that I had a few large half square triangles […]
