So here's what you missed:

Laura Anne had a birthday!

Caleb's big Christmas gift this year was a train table with lots of Thomas the train tracks and engines to go with it.

Laura Anne's big Christmas gift was a bike!

On more than one occasion, I caught Stellan on the table nibbling off of our gingerbread house!

We visited with cousins and grandparents in Jacksonville

I couldn't resist a picture opportunity because the 3 boys were all wearing Cars shirts. :)

In January, we had a great family day at a playground, and then had a picnic at a park. It was beautiful.

I'm hoping to be able to stay caught up with the 'ole blog. We'll see if that works out. Does anyone even read it anymore? .....hello? (crickets chirping)

Happy Holidays!

You won't normally hear me say "happy holidays" but I am trying to cover my bases. I missed Christmas and New Year's on the blog, and since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I'm including that, too. :)

These three adorable little people are keeping me busy this year. We're moving right along through LA's kindergarten year of homeschooling. Caleb is learning more, too and we are still doing occasional experiments and hands-on activities. They both love those so much so it 's definitely time well spent.

Laura Anne turned 6 in December (what?!) and has her first loose tooth!

Caleb will be 4 soon and is a super sweet heart. His favorite thing right now is Tim Tebow!!

Stellan is 18 months old and really showing us his personality lately. He's a very stubborn and strong-willed boy with a temper to boot, but he has a marshmallow side, too that makes him irresistable. :)

This year will be a busy one! In March, my sister is graduating from her internship and the next day, Chris and I are taking the 2 older kids to Disney World for their first time! Also in March, is the Gate River Run which I will be running in! After a few attempts at it, I'm hoping to finally finish my first 15k! The weekend after that, Chris and I are going to Orlando to see Dave Ramsey! Awesome!

Later this year are wedding festivities! As you may remember, my little sister is getting married in October! Not only am I her matron of honor (yay!), but I will be taking engagement photos for them, possibly bridal portraits for her, planning a bridal shower and helping out with decorations! I'm super excited and can't wait!

That's all for now. I only had a few minutes to let you all know I'm not dead. :)
