First Day of School

February 20, 2012

Okay, it was two weeks ago, but this is the boys on Carter’s first day of school.


Carter seems to really enjoy it there.

Hockey According to Tyler

December 31, 2011

Tyler has determined that “HO-key” is a game that is played with a round, orange ball. You score when the ball hits the front door, without hitting the floor first. The game is played using “ice skapes”, made by standing on alphabet refrigerator magnets and sliding on the tile.

Fun in the Snow

Tyler’s first time sledding.  What fun we had!

Welcome Carter!

December 7, 2011


On November 20, 2011 Carter was placed with us for adoption.  He was born November 14, 19 1/4″ long, weighing 6 pounds 3 ounces.  His birth mother didn’t pre-arrange to place him for adoption, so we found out he would be ours on Friday night, and picked him up Sunday morning.  Very different from the month’s notice we had been expecting.  He did have to spend a few days in cradle care (a foster home for newborns about to be adopted), while a few issues were sorted out, before we could bring him home.

He’s been home for two weeks now, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.  Tyler is infatuated with his baby brother, “Tarter”.  The first thing he asks each morning is “Where is Tarter?”, he is eager to share his most precious toys, and always wants to be in the same room.  They are going to be great friends!

I am taking 8 weeks off work to be with Carter, then Ed is going to take a couple, before he starts school with the same teacher Tyler had at that age.  I’m loving the time we’ve had so far, and looking forward to a magical holiday season.


Happy Halloween and a House Update

November 1, 2011

We had a great time Trick or Treating this year.  Tyler was adorable saying “Trick or Treat” and “Thank you!”


On the house…  They poured the foundation today, and it’s now raining/snowing.

A New Project

As if we didn’t have enough going on…

This is the view from our new backyard.  The little white sign in the middle is where our new driveway will be.  Somewhere in the middle will be our new house.
