We made it to the pumpkin patch

So many things have prevented us from taking the kids to a pumpkin patch or farm this year. Elizabeth and Logan had croup, nasty weather, Brandon and I were sick, the list goes on however we finally made it last weekend and we're so happy we did.

The kids liked the animals as long as they were not too close to them. Surprisingly Logan was the least excited and the most terrified.


DADDY, get that thing away now!!!


Umm, Daddy I want back in my safe car here.


Just looking over I could see the kids eyes says please no Mommy.


I don’t know much about animals but I have a bond with this one and anyone that knows my family knows Onyx and this little buddy reminds me so much of Onyx I could have just cuddled him all day. He just fits :).


We were entertainment and many children tried to get into the choo choo, very funny.



It was very nice of someone to offer to take a picture of all of us, I had barely sat down so this is what you get.


Maybe they won’t see if I run this back to the car, just maybe


Madison checking out other pumpkins getting ready to leave the boys hanging.


Maybe, hmm no, well lets look over there


Refreshment time


Here Sissy, said in the sweetest Lizy voice ever.


Boys together again


If there is a baby around we will never get a good picture of Elizabeth or Madison all we here is “baby, baby”. Yes Lizy that is a baby please look at Mommy for just a second sweetie.


Yes Madison that is the same baby Lizy was talking about…


Yes girls there are a million different babies in the world and you can show me all of them I promise if you just look at Mommy for one picture PLEASE!


Even Logan was checking out the baby, Mommy did not win on this mission.


Ok I’ll smile for you now


Madison learning a new way into the choo choo


It’s a little bumpier sitting where your feet go but het if it works and she is happy I am all for it.



Love to all! Amy-Jo

I turned 30, what!

A couple months back I turned 30, my body feels a lot older than that lately.  Brandon invited friends to Pete’s Piano Bar for the evening and we had a fabulous time celebrating with everyone.  Of course I forgot my camera and the pictures we have did not turn out.  Thank you to everyone you came out that night.

In the mail I received a beautiful gift from some amazing friends and I wanted to share it with you all.  Thank you Sandra and Casey, I love you so much and think of you every time I wear this necklace.

I knew something was up

Whenever we change Logans diaper he always does what I call his crunch a munch.  Boy has abs that I can only dream of having some day and probably never will unless my muscles somehow go back together perfectly.  He is always looking down to see what we are doing and watching us change his diaper, to me it is strange, the girls could care less and just want a book to play with.  Well, yesterday I figured out why or at least maybe why.  I put Logan down to get his bottle come back to a laughing little man and half his diaper is undone!  I know it was him because the girls were in the foyer playing the entire time.  Oh goodness me.

Not even thinking to take a picture, just wanting to make sure he did not pee on my freshly cleaned carpets I did it back up and then ran for the camera to capture him still laughing for the longest time.


Still going…

Elizabeth not putting her milk down in case Mommy takes it


Wait, what’s that, yes seriously giggle machine is still there!


Seriously Mama, more Lizy and less Logan


Logans new favorite game, inside the bucket


Crunch a munch time!


Log loves it when the girls join in or bang on the bucket, better puking in the bucket thank on the carpet :).


Going through the pictures I went back to last year, WOW is all I can say.  It is crazy how different life is in just one year.

Let alone TWO years, I was 13 weeks pregnant in the picture, I remember I started showing at 8, yes EIGHT weeks and had to start buying maternity clothes.


Love to you all and prayers to the many families and friends that need them right now.
