We got the first snow at our house today -right now :) Ashtyn was totally captivated by it, it was wonderful and cute!

Being a parent is so hard and scary sometimes. It's hard when something scary is going on and you've got to keep it together and make choices and stay calm. Last Wednesday Law had his tonsils and adenoids out, everything went well and he was recovering -or so we thought. Yesterday, a week after surgery, Law came in my room sometime in the 4 o'clock hour of the morning and said he spit out blood. I wasn't sure if it was an emergency or not so I said a quick prayer for direction on whether he needed to go to the hospital or not. The second my prayer ended Cole came in and said he would definitely need to go in -as he was now laying with a bowl full of blood under his face. I rushed him in smiling, saying 'I'm sure it's fine..we're just going to the doctor..everything is going to be's fun to go to the doctor in the dark!' doing my best to keep things light while freaking out on the inside, eyes welling up with tears -he was DEATHLY afraid…

huge update ??

Life has been crazy busy lately -or it just feels that way -or something? Anywho we've had family in-and-out and in-and-out for the passed 3 months  It has been awesome!  We've never had a year where we got to get together with so much family! My family even got family pics! -which hasn't been done since I was 4! We 5 kids haven't even been all together since before I was married! Here's my favs: our true family  the one where my big bro surprised us all with a steamroller flashback  and we had our own little shoot
Then a couple weeks ago we got to go out to California for our nephew's baptism  It was amazing! seriously the best baptism I've ever attended. EVER. And my brother and sister in law had so much fun stuff planned! I'm dumb and forgot to bring my camera but we went to the beach  (Cole had his phone) -the pics are awful  Cole insisted we keep his phone in a plastic baggy to protect it from sand and such  :) he's cute and smart

We went out …
