More 3 year shots...

Hammimg it up for the photographer
Gracie loves getting her picture made now

She puts her arms around us and says, "This is my whole fam-i-ly!" (She really pronounces each phoneme in the word family. It is so cute!)

Mommy and her angels

Harry thinks he looks cooler in his shades, and I did not realize he was wearing them until the end of the afternoon when the photographer asked him to take them off. He said, "Do I have to?" ARGHHH! Harry hates to have his picture taken.

Gracie's 3 year pictures

Peek-a-boo...Where are you, Daddy?
Our Angel is 3!

Stopping to smell the roses

It was a little chilly that afternoon, and VERY breezy.

There are so many great shots, it was hard to pick which ones to post, but I had planned to add a couple more. Unfortunately, the site quit letting me upload anymore citing a web error... I'll try again tomorrow.

my side?

Gracie and I were watching Wizard of Oz for the 25th time this week, when I told her I had a boo-boo. She checked it out and we talked about how I had to put medicine on it earlier to make it feel better. She asked me what kind of medicine to which I replied, "Peroxide." She then asked me, "Why didn't you use my side?" It sounded to her like I said perox side! She is too cute! I could not stop laughing for a good while!

Nana and Ethan ready to eat
The kids after dinner and ready for a nap!

Austin and Ella Grace watching Ratatouille
Looks like Harrison is ready to say the blessing!
These pictures are from Thanksgiving morning. Gracie likes me to put her in the crib with "bruver" and she "watches" him while I fold and put away laundry. Sometimes she reads books to him or sings to him. It is adorable. Here, when I came into the room, she had her finger in his mouth to calm him when he became fussy!

I couldn't figure out how to move these three to the top of the post. Oh well! I guess my posts are a little wacky~ sort of like our lives right now!
You know I'll be where the food is!
Aunt Lulu, her boyfriend, Cory, Harrison, and a silly Nana in the back!

Gracie Logic

The other night as I tucked Gracie into bed, I reminded her that she was going to go right to sleep and not repeatedly call me into her room as a stall tactic. She said OK and I shut the door. A few minutes later she called me in and when I got in there, I said, "I thought you said you weren't going to call me in here tonight." She quickly pointed out, "I didn't say that Mommy. You did. Well, if I have to tell you sumpin', I have to tell you sumpin'. OK?" How could I argue with that?!? She cracks me up! Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Trick or Treat!
Ally and Gracie (I mean Fairy Princess and Dora) ready to go to the next house!
"It's MY turn to ring the doorbell!!"
Cousin Austin as the Scarecrow and Dora share Peeps
Harry told Gracie if she didn't keep her shirt pulled down, people would think she was Brittney Spears due to her belly hanging out and the wig! Ha!
Howdy Pardner!"
The Sheriff and his Deputy ready to go knock on some doors to score some candy for the Sheriff!
He also had Dora prepped... When someone placed a full sized candy bar into her bag she exclaimed, "OOOH! This one's for my Daddy! It's a big one!"

The cutest deputy in town! (It was SO hard to keep that hat on his tiny head! HeeHee)

12 weeks ago today

12 weeks ago today I had the most adorable little boy I have ever laid eyes on. Time has flown so quickly!
He is such a good boy!
Today Harry had surgery... We had agreed that it was the best plan for our family, but when it was time to get it done, I really became quite saddened by the realization that I will never again feel the kick of an unborn child or hear its heartbeat growing under mine... I know we are SO blessed to have our 2 beautiful children, but I can't help but wonder what else could have been...
