Rewind Part 3

 And stepping just a little further back in time, this Preciousness celebrated her first birthday.  The above picture was taken a day or two before. 

And here are a few shots from the "big" day.  We celebrated with balloons and cake and her siblings seemed more excited about all of it then she was.  :-)

Clara helping decorate the #1 cake.

We love you big girl.  You bring so much joy to our lives!!!!

Rewind Part 2

 Stepping a little farther back in time with more moments from earlier this fall.  We'll start with this snap of brother and sister cuteness.  :-)

Next up, we have Clara and Hil's outfits for Pioneer Days.  Every year, right before Thanksgiving our home school group has a special morning where the kids get to do pioneer type activities, dress up if they want to, and everything culminates with a lunch that Dad's and Grandparents can join us for.  Both kidos wanted to dress up this year.  Unfortunately, Clara was getting over sickness, and had to miss the morning activities and just go to the lunch.  Boy, was she bummed.  Still got to dress up though. 

Though he didn't take the entire get-up pictured here, he was still a very good looking cowboy. 

Our boy lost his first tooth and the second isn't too far behind!  Haven't found a "pause" button on any of these kids yet.  They keep growing up!

Have I mentioned before that Ittai likes to line things up?  It's not on obsession, just a cute thing that happens every once in a while.

Another school day shot:

More sweetness:

A couple posts back, Stephen shared a video from a date he had with Clara and Hil.  The littles and I had our own meal out.  These next two were taken then.  

From our house to yours, goodbye just for now.

Rewind Part 1

Last night I FINALLY download a BUNCH of pictures off my phone.  I'm thinking to do a series of "rewind" posts that share some of these snippets of life over the last few months.  We'll start with some of the most recent ones and work our ways backwards.  Sound like a plan?  Ok, here we go.

Daddy and the two older kidos went out on some hunting expeditions, each of them on different times.  We didn't end up getting a deer, but both kidos got adventure time with Dad.

Ittai could have gone, but didn't want to.  Still looks awfully cute in his hunter orange.  :-)

This fun one is from a night when both girls accompanied me on a grocery shopping trip.  "Car carts" are pretty popular in this family


Beautiful.  What an awesome Creator.
 And on the sunset note, Ittai has started noticing sunsets, and has called me to see them more them once. 

We were very blessed to enjoy special time with family over Thanksgiving.  Here's Clara and Hil spending time doing a craft with cousins and a friend day after Thanksgiving.  They had "Craft Friday" instead of "Black Friday".  :-)

And here's a little shot of  a school day.  Clara and Hil copying their memory verse and Ty doing a favorite of his: playing with play dough. 

Stay tuned for "Rewind Part 2"
