Snow Day

Today was a good day. The snow was beautiful and Jake and Ryan went out to play "snow balls". They were having a great time! They even built a snowman--who happens to be working on his tan?
(the arms are celery!)
A snowball fight broke out, I still don't know who won...

Baby Dedication

This weekend, we and three other families from The Well dedicated our little ones to Christ. It wa s a great time that we are so thankful to have shared with our friends and family! Emily pretty much slept throught the whole thing. She looked so pretty in her Christmas dress and sparkly red shoes! She was getting the Wizard of Oz jokes all night! Here are some pics of the dedication and our pretty Christmas princess....

Tis the Season!

With my first Thanksgiving turkey behind me, it's on to Christmas. We put our tree and decorations up right after Thanksgiving dinner and we've been enjoying the Christmas season ever since.

I made this snowman cake on Thanksgiving for dessert, Jake thought it was pretty funny.Jake wants to audition for the role of Mary in the Christmas Story.

Future Babysitters!

Last night we babysat for the girls...we had a lot of fun, the girls are getting so big. They were really interested in Emily and her carseat. They especially liked rocking the baby in her seat.
Lauren wanted to touch baby Emily on the nose. It was so cute!

Just Jake

Jake hams it up, and looks so much like papaw Vinny.
This is Jake's face during the Colts-Chargers game....you can't win them all. But he's still a die hard fan.

New Pics

Here are some of the newest pics of our ever-changing princess....
Eyes--Still Blue.
Sleeping Beauty-
Emily has been being very good to her mommy. She's been going to bed between 10 and 11pm and sleeping until 4:15 or 4:30. In the last few nights she's even made it all the way until 6:30 or 6:45!!! Thanks, sweetie, mommy love you!

Happy Halloween!

Emily's First Halloween! A sleeping pumpkin! This was her real costume. Aunt Jenni got this for Jake when he was a baby, but he was too big by Halloween. This is pretty much what he would have looked like in it too. She rode around the neighborhood in the stroller while we trick-or-treated at our new neighbors.
Jake was thrilled this year to be Buzz Lightyear (from Toy Story) he couldn't wait to go out in his costume. He looked so cute!
"To infinity...and beyond!"

We had a great time trick-or-treating at Gam and PaPaw's house!

Baby Faces

Emily is starting to make some fun and adorable faces.

My heart melts!

Newest Wellers!

The newests addition to our Well family! Max, Myla and Emily were all born within weeks of one another. It's going to be so fun to watch them grow up together. Since their big siblings are good friends, I know these punkins will be good friends too!

We're Back to Blogging!

These pics are probably about 3 weeks old...you'll see how much Emily has changed.

Jake the cowboy...acutally he got these duds out of Sandy's closet, he really likes to wear her shoes...I hope it's just a phase!

These pictures were taken while we were still living with Steve and Sandy (Ryan's parents). Shortly after, our new house was completed and we got to move in. We've been in for about 3 weeks now and still getting settled, but it's feeling more and more like home every day.

I know we're partial, but seriously...she's beautiful!
