    Default Update on us, pics.

    Hi Everyone!
    I am sorry that I have been absent. Life is busy now with older 5 kids being in sports and such.

    First! CONGRATULATIONS Sarah- Jean on your pregnancy!!!

    We moved almost two years ago now and we are well settled into our new life. The house and the town feel like home now which is a great relief because I felt like such a stranger there. I think the kids did too.
    Our oldest is graduating high school this year and is already signed up with the Navy. He will be in the IT field. He has a girlfriend ( who is an only child!) and he is on a rowing team.
    Our second son Phillip, is in 10 grade. He loves to work in our machine shop, is building a chicken coop, is my go-to guy when I need something fixed or improved.
    Tim is our third and he also does rowing. He is in 9th grade. He loves playing on his computer and avoiding chores
    KArolina is in Middle School, she loves it. She did sideline and competitive cheerleading.
    Julius is also in Middle School. He did basketball and had a great season. He finally got his dog he always wanted.
    KAsia is our animal lover, she really has a way with them. She is in fourth grade.
    Chloe is in second grade. She loves baby dolls, reading and is playing piano a little. She gets along with GAbby the most.
    Gabby is in first grade. Learning was hard for her and she is receiving help at school, she has been my happy-go-lucky girl who could spend hours playing BArbies ( but not in a "glamour lifestyle" way, but she would make them a family and often play "poor Barbies").
    Sebastian just turned 5 and is in preschool. He loves it and can't wait for KDG. he loves duplo blocks, crafts, songs... He is really calm and understanding, it's almost strange.
    Nicholas is 2 and he is a tornado. He will undo any cleaning done in the house, in seconds. He loves duplo blocks, trains, cars and anything messy
    We now have a yellow lab Howie who is 1 year old
    Winter was hard, even with us escaping some of it by going on a road trip to California. I have never experienced such cold! I am so looking forward to spring and summer. I want to plant flowers and a garden, i want to be outside!
    I will post a link to my Flickr, hopefully it will work since there are too many photos to post.

    BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

    Thank you for the update!!! Everyone is growing up, and looking so mature! WOW!

    I am glad you have settled in to your new place. Has the basement been finished? I saw the photos of the bedrooms being made, how did they turn out? Judging by the rest of them, they are probably quite comfortable and beautiful.

    You always impress me by having everyone in order, looking at he camera at the same time, and most even smiling! We can't do that with the 4 of ours! LOL!

    I love hearing about your adventures too!

    And how are you doing?

    Sarah, our basement is finished. We had a bedroom put in there for the two oldest boys ( it was done 3 months after we moved in) the rest of it is a play room and laundry plus storage.

    As for pics, we just yell: " hey guys- say cheese" or sometimes " fuzzy chickens", it usually works, but not always. They are tired of the group photos- it is usually a long process with many tries.

    I added a few more pics to the flickr, of real winter ( sledding and such) so it doesn't look like we just enjoyed sunshine all those months

    If you had 2 hours to yourself, what would you be doing? (NOT LAUNDRY!)

    Hmmm, I would go to the rec center and soak in the hot tub ( maybe not the whole 2 hours though) because I took the kids there last week and since I had my babies with me, I could not use the hot tub ( kids not allowed in there) and I spent about an hour in a luke warm baby pool.
    I could actually think of many things I would do in 2 hours of alone time!

    Aw thank you hun! We're very excited. I have my first scan on Saturday because my hCG numbers and doubling time were on the high side.

    I love the pictures, you have such a beautiful family and everyone always looks so happy. I love yellow labs, they're such lovely dogs! I actually have a golden retriever who's about to turn one and I think their temperaments are supposed to be quite similar. I don't know about you but I've hit that place where he's such a well behaved, easy dog he makes me want another one! DH says no thankfully, otherwise I could see my house full of dogs and kids. Maybe when baby is older and pup is older we'll get another one.

    It's so lovely to read about how all the kids and everyone is doing - don't be a stranger, we've missed you around here!

    Asha, I bet life is different with DH at his job instead of school PLUS jobs.....
    Yes, I agree with Sara-Jean. I love photos and wish there were more on this board.

    It's funny that you say this! When we first got Howie a year ago, he was SO MUCH work! I was really exhausted, I really thought "what did I get myself into!" But now that he is a year old, he is so nice and calm, but if we ever got another dog, it would be an older one from a rescue place. I got talked into getting a new puppy. Also, we almost got a golden but it came down to price really and labs were cheaper
