Day 114

September 28th, 2013

And......she's on the table again. 

Day 113

September 27th, 2013

We managed to get out some of the Halloween decorations.  Jadon is now Harry Potter, so is Jenevieve. 

Day 112

September 26th, 2013

The fallen tree from Sunday's storm keeps on giving to my children.  We trimmed the branches off and left a bit left for the children to play on - and they do!

Day 111

September 25th, 2013

I've been teaching Jude to vacuum.  He failed to pick up the large toys off the floor today.  This is a leggo stuck in the vacuum.  

Day 110

September 24th, 2013

Jenevieve LOVES to climb up onto the table and do anything, especially play with Jaren and distract him from his studying. 

Day 109

September 23rd, 2013

We got our Halloween and fall decorations down from the attic today.  That's all the progress we made.  We were hoping to decorate tonight.  At times tasks talk longer than I think they will.

Day 108

September 22nd, 2013

Jenea made a discovery in the back yard.  Look what the windstorm did to our maple tree.  The children enjoyed playing on it.  

Day 107

September 21st, 2013

We went to the apple festival today and were able to sample 200 types of apples.  It was fun! 

Day 106

September 20th, 2013

Jadon is trying his hand out at drawing people.  Not sure who these people are, but I think they are vampires. 

Day 105

September 19th, 2013

I finally got the children's modeling stats and photos in to the agency.  I hope they get lots of jobs for Christmas.

Day 104

September 18th, 2013

Today I picked Jenea and Jaren up from school.  I met with their teachers.  While I did this the others had great fun playing on the play structure.  Jenevieve kept me on my toes because she went wherever she wanted to - and fast. 

Day 103

September 17th, 2013

Today we (Jolie, Jadon, Jenevieve and I) took a trip to Madras for Grandpa William's funeral.  Here are my little ones with cousin Keira. 

Day 102

September 16th, 2013

Jude heat up his muffin - to the point that the muffin and plate became one. I did something similar when I was about his age.

Day 101

September 15th, 2013

Tonight we celebrated Jenevieve's first birthday! She really seemed to like being the center of attention tonight.  She has brought our family so much joy!  Love her SOOOOO much!

Day 100

September 14th, 2013

Today I went on the donut run with Grandpa and 5 of the other children.  It was a wonderful walk.  Such good memories we are having of my parents.  Huge blessing!

Day 99

September 13th, 2013

Today we saw Grandma Joy and Jennifer.  It's becoming a Friday tradition.  JJ wasn't too excited to be with Grandma Joy.  Hopefully she'll get used to her soon.  She is, after all, her namesake.

Day 98

September 12th, 2013

While on a walk we noticed this house.  Jenea and I want it, or one similar to it.  We wonder how we missed it, we've passed it probably 200 times! 

Day 97

September 11th, 2013

Today Grandpa Williams died.  Grandma and Grandpa Tuttle were down in Bend with him when he passed.  All of my children except Jenevieve have met him.   Here is Grandpa with my brother Chris.

Day 95

September 10th, 2013

Today was Jenea's and Jaren's first day of formal school.  We enrolled them in private school this year.  It's an amazing school.  The children really enjoy it.  Jaren didn't want his picture taken with Jenea, but JJ did.   

Day 94

September 9th, 2013

Today I took Jenevieve to the doctor.  She had a fever of 102 again and broke out in a rash.  Turns out she has a common childhood virus called roseola.  Poor sweet girl.  

Day 93

September 8th, 2013

Jadon is looking forward to Halloween.  He's wearing the costume my mom made for me when I was 5 years old!  Fits him perfectly.

Day 92

September 7th, 2013

Today I participated in a community garage sale to get rid of stuff, but mostly to get leads for my business.  Jenevieve and Jolie kept me company while Paul took the rest of the children to a volunteer day at their private school. 

Day 91

September 6th, 2013

Happy first birthday Jenevieve Joy!  Today for your birthday we saw Grandma Joy and Aunt Jennifer who just moved here from South Carolina.  We went to the fish hatcherys and to Bonneville Dam.  How was that for a birthday field trip?
