October Fun

Our 5-some at our neighborhood Halloween event

Andrew LOVES killer whales so it was really fun to find this costume for him. And Adam is enjoying being a scary shark :)

Fall Fun & Football

Pictures from our recent trip to a local pumpkin patch. It's really hard to get a decent picture of my three these days!

The boys tested and passed to earn their orange belts!

Adam is such a natural athlete

The boys are having a blast in flag football. Their team is the Cobras and there are 3.5 sets of twins on one team!

In their first game, Adam caught a pass and Andrew ran for a touchdown. It was such a proud moment for all of us considering where they've come from and the obstacles we still face.

Look at Andrew's determination

This is Ally's doll pose ;-)

Love these kids more than anything! Thanking The Lord that I get to be their mama!

Side by Side

Here is a side by side comparison of my kids at 3 months adjusted age.
Any thoughts ;-) ??

Galveston 2012

This past weekend we went to Galveston with some of our good friends. We had a fantastic time. The weather was perfect and the beach and water were the prettiest I've ever seen it. (I've been without a functional computer forever it seems, so until then I can only post phone pictures but they came out pretty decent.)

The kids loved the beach and swimming in the surf. The sound of the waves always put Ally right to sleep. But when she was awake I dipped her feet in the water and let her touch the sand and she seemed to enjoy herself.

We ate some delicious home cooked meals, visited Moody Gardens, spent time at the beach and on a boat in the bay. What a great time!

5 Months Old

My sweet cherub is 5 month old!

This age is absolutely a dream. I wish I could keep her in this stage longer. Ally has the greatest belly laugh and joyful smile. We started eating some solids the last few weeks and she loves just about everything I've given her. She seems like she may be working on a tooth but nothing has broken through so far. She can now prop sit for a little while. We recently started Kindermusik and she really enjoys the music and all the bouncing. I'm so smitten with my sweet girl, as are her Daddy and big brothers.

She's now a lot bigger than that little pink piggy!

Love how she's crossing her feet like a little lady in this one ;-)!!

Ally Michele, I still can't believe you are really mine.

Truly blessed and grateful . . .
