It snowed our first week in our new house.  We live on a great hill where everyone comes out to play, so it was pretty fun for the boys.  Ellie enjoyed going down the hill too. Haddie and I enjoyed making the snow cream, hot chocolate, and keeping warm inside :)

Ellie turns 2

Ellie had her birthday and party on the 15th.  We had a rainbow polka dot theme for the day.  She is our spunky, sweet, fun, singing, not sleeping girl.  She currently loves numbers, letters, all things Jake and the Neverland Pirates, jumping, not sleeping, blueberries, her brothers and sister, praying, singing made up songs, applesauce (which she calls Jabu for some unknown reason), juice, chicken nuggets, and wearing big bows. 

the boys enjoyed helping get ready for the party

Moving on Up

Goodbye to our sweet, little, first house.  We have loved this house well for 6 years, but we are out of space!  We are really excited to move to more room, a neighborhood with close friends, and the school zone we wanted for Zeke.  We are so so sad to be further from the church (it's a whole 8 miles away instead of 2, but that makes the commute for Spence jump from less than 5 minutes to about 15-20 depending on traffic), leaving our neighbors who we love so much, and being super close to everything! Pretty sure that Haddie will be the most excited because she will be moving out of a bathroom and into a real bedroom.  

Goodbye Suda!

Hello Englehardt!
