Family Pictures...

We had some family pictures taken a couple of weeks ago by the talented Elisha Snow. Thank you so much Elisha! It is nearly impossible to get all 5 of us looking at the camera and to try to have a decent face on ,let alone a smile. I have been very pleased with the turnout. Elisha is awesome, you can visit her site here.

Weekend Getaway......

We had a great weekend. We headed up to midway and spent a couple of nights at the Zermatt. The kids had a great time with Gma and Gpa Shupe and cousin Charlie, Jessie and Amy even came up for the last night. We swam, ate delicious food, fed the goats, rode the carousel, swam some more, and we stopped at Jordanelle on Saturday and enjoyed a day at the lake. It was so pretty up there, all the trees were starting to turn colors. We had great weather and even enjoyed a couple of thunder storms. It was a great last summer weekend!!

Feeding the goats!

Ella is 6 months...

I can't believe Ella is 6 months old already! She has been such a fun baby!
She sleeps so good, she eats so good, she is still learning to eat solids but she is doing pretty good. She loves to put anything in her mouth, and she will attack it like she is starving or something. She is getting a bottom tooth that the dr said should break through soon. She loves her brothers, her binky and she loves to snuggle with a blanket, oh and she loves loves her dad, everytime she sees him or hears him she gets the biggest grin on her face, Travis loves it, he is always asking her,"what do you want Ella, i will buy you whatever you want" He is wrapped around those chubby little fingers. She has been a pure joy to have in our home and i can't imagine the chaos without her!! we love you little Ella Sue.

chubs and no chubs...

Are these two really siblings? I just had to show you the difference between my two babies, holy cow! They both go to the doctor on friday, brig for his 2 year check and Ella for her 6 month check, We will see who wins the weight contest! i will let you know on friday! i am really hoping brig is at least 20 pounds!!

Check out those rolls, awesome!
