Weston's Second Birthday

We can't believe that Weston is two already! He loved the "golf" on his cake (he says "golf" all the time, trying to get someone to take him for a ride on the golf cart!).

Sampling the frosting . . . all over the cake!

Weston and his new tricycle are inseparable!

Happy Birthday, Kaylee!

On February 16, Kaylee celebrated her tenth birthday. In our family, girls are very special--after all, they are very rare! But Kaylee is extra special, just because she is ours. . .

Kaylee is the perfect "mother's helper." In fact, I have no idea how I ever took care of babies and managed the household without her! She gets up early with Weston every morning, so I can get a little bit of uninterrupted sleep. (It's so cute to see him reach for her, and wave bye-bye to me!) Then throughout the day, she cheerfully helps with the baby while I take a few minutes to do all those things that moms do. In addition to being my helper, Kaylee is an A+ student, and also takes time to correspond with her ever-growing list of pen-pals. We love you, Kaylee!

Big Brother, Little Brother

It's so neat to see the older kids spending time with Weston. I would be totally lost without my helpers!

Weston's First Christmas

I know we're a month past Christmas already, but I just had to share a few pictures of Weston's first Christmas. It's always nice to have a baby in the house, but it's especially fun at Christmas time!

Weston on Christmas morning
Weston has loved the sound of crackling paper ever since he was tiny, and Christmas morning was no exception. He enjoyed the wrapping paper at least as much as the gifts that were inside!
We thought he looked so adorable in his Christmas outfit!

Every baby should have a big sister!

Keaton's birthday--8 years old!

On December 29, 2008, Keaton celebrated his eighth birthday. Eight years old already! Keaton, otherwise known in our household as "The Gingerbread Man," is a very special part of our family. He can often be found reading in bed until nearly midnight, and recently surprised us by reading a large portion of a "young adult fiction" book from the library. He is a proud big brother, often taking a few minutes to carry Weston around the house while I'm busy. And of course, being part gingerbread man, Keaton is an exceptionally fast runner, as well! We love you, Keaton!
