Holiday Fun!

My sweet boy with Lo.... they were watching fireworks at my parents and the poor guy was deathly afraid. :(
Gav looking like a BOY... it only took him 5 minutes to get messy.
Lorin drowning us in leaves.
My sweet girl - Man, I LOVE HER! She's definitely my little bestie!
Lily playing in the leaves Christmas day.
Lily Christmas morning looking out of it still!
Gav & Lils on Christmas Sunday. So stinkin' cute!
Lily with Santa at our Annual White Elephant Exchange.
Ritchey grandkids - yes, my kids are the whitest ones!
We took pics of all the grandkids on the Ritchey side for my mom... it took some editing, but I LOVE how they turned out! Thanks, Jax!

It's only taken about 10 years to update this thing!
We had a crazy December, and I'm happy to report that things have slowed down and we are looking forward to a new year and a new baby to join us in March.
If I go 1-2 weeks early like I have with the previous two kiddos,
I'll be having this baby in 9 weeks!!

9 weeks?!!?!?

Crazy, I know!

We are so excited for Eveline (Evie) Iris to join us in March. Don't really know how crazy life will be with 3, but I know we're in for an adventure!

Here are some pics of our Christmas and New Years!

Family Pics

It's been awhile!
(As usual).

I'm just so happy that the holidays are here.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is here in LESS than two weeks?!

In preparation for the holidays, we were able to have our pics taken and I'm so glad a few turned out where both kids were looking.
(Sounds easy - but trust me - a very difficult task!)

Any way, I just love this time of year, and cannot wait to spend it with my family.
This time last year I was pretty sad thinking Lorin would be leaving us for school right after the New Year, so I'm so glad that is done with and so glad that he won't be leaving us again.

I sure do love my family!

Gav:1 & Lily:3

I sure do love my kids!

They make me sooo happy!

We just celebrated Gav's 1st and Lily's 3rd birthday a few weeks ago, and I cannot believe how fast they are growing up. They truly bring me so much happiness!

Seriously, I think that if they can make me so happy, then won't 5 more kids bring SO MUCH MORE happiness?! Okay, I know... it may also bring some insanity, but I think it's worth it!

Here are some pics of the kiddos at their birthday celebration.

We had so much fun!!
Thanks to all our friends and fam who came to party with us. :)

It's been awhile...

I know, I'm slackin'.


I'm pregnant - that's a HUGE reason in itself.

The other reason?

I'm spending LOTS more time Bloggin' for Lil' Luna.

Lame, I know.

Just thought I'd post some of the latest pics...

Man - I sure LOVE my Lil' FAMILY!!

Happy Father's Day

Ended up making about 3 of these. More info on how to make them on my
Lil' Luna BLOG
The hubby and Lily (still half asleep apparently)

My dad's pop case.
All of Lorin's goodies... More info HERE. I hate copying crafts exactly but I had so little time cuz of my craft nite last week, that copying exactly was all I could muster. Lame, I know.

Father's Day was great this year!!
It's so much fun when the kids can get more involved. This year, Lily was SOO excited to celebrate Father's Day, and all day she kept telling Lorin - "Happy Father's Day - you are soo handsome!" Cute, huh?

We were able to have breakfast and then dinner with my fam and the In-Laws. Talk about an overload of food, but everything was so stinkin' yummy!!

Just want to tell my Pawda (Dad) how great he is, and also the FIL how great he is as well. You guys are both WONDERFUL!

And to Lo - thank you for being the BEST husband and father to our children, Lils and Gav. I couldn't have picked anyone better for them. You are amazing in every way, and I cherish and love you more than you could ever know!! :D
