Sam finally got to #hitchthehutchens

Sam finally got to #hitchthehutchens

My baby brother (forever, sorry, bro!) got married last month! We’re up to 8 beautiful sisters in this family! James was a groomsman and my sister and I sang PLUS my other brother and sister-in-law were both in the wedding party and have two kids, so Grammie and Papa had some kid duties during the […]

Graduating Another Brother

Graduating Another Brother

I’m pretty sure kids will be graduating in my family for pretty much ever. Last month was another one–Matt! Florida sister Mary came for the big day. Look at her gorgeously long hair! There were lots of helpers on completing Matt’s scrapbook (birth til now!), but rumor has it that Courtney spent the weeks leading […]

April 2016

CORBAN Corban joined his first t-ball league this spring. Just over an hour once or twice a week. We’ve enjoyed spending time together as a family cheering him on! (And picking flowers, running around, etc.) He’s our little athletic one, that boy. Uncle Jon came for a visit on his way home from college. Liddi […]

March 2016

I do so hate when my babies are sick, but they just never seem to be as still (and precious).  Liddi’s started walking right at 13 months (par for the course around here) and was ready to start scootering the next week. Our weekly book one week was The Gingerbread Man, so naturally we had to […]

Cousin Timmy & a Lego Show

Cousin Timmy & a Lego Show

Our lil’ cuz turned TWO right after Liddi turned ONE. So naturally, we had to celebrate…at the Essenhaus… …Lego-style! (Seriously, we just sat and stared and this whole complex Lego city block– made by one of my siblings’ teachers, amazing!) And the cousins all crafted together. There’s my (chopped-off, sorry, bro) LITTLE brother with his cute wife and […]

This post will be a little here, there, and everywhere. I’m trying to squeeze, you know, two months of the kids into a single post. Big breath in. Here goes! Corban has started drawing IDENTIFIABLE objects! We found this website that he can click through himself. Very step-by-step, and he loves it! We were waiting […]

A Family of Five Vacation

A Family of Five Vacation

We wanted to visit our Wisconsin family last month. We hadn’t visited since Thanksgiving of 2014. You know, I was miserable pregnant, then had an infant, and all of a sudden, it was almost a year later. Whoops. Thankfully, they’ve been so kind to come to visit us many times! We decided to take a whole day […]

A Beach Photo Shoot

A Beach Photo Shoot

One thing I like to do (when I find free prints coupons) is print pics for the kids to hang on their beds. You know how you hang pics of you and your friends in high school/college? I’m just trying to send subliminal messages like “She is your friend” and “You love each other.” I’d […]

Jae Riz is Three!

Jae Riz is Three!

On Jaeda’s birthday, the zoo threw a party for their members. Jaeda was certain it was for her. James took off work, a few family members drove down, and we made a wonderful day of it! Aunt Hoopie still has a broken foot, but all the kids got to take turns riding in her wheelchair.  […]
