Asher's Month

The first graders gave a sweet music performance on Monday.  Ash did a super job.  Hollyn brought the toddler camera she received for Christmas and had a great time snapping a million pictures herself. :-)

 Two songs: the first one is just cute about what music makes us do.  The second is funny.

Backing up a week, Asher celebrated his 7th birthday!  This kid is growing up on us!  He's such a wonderful, special spirit.  Asher is funny, kind, smart, and just a delight.  Heavenly Father sent him to me to help me notice and remember the humor and joy in life.  I love you, Asher!

Needed a Change

I've just been feeling this urge to change things lately.  I'm purging and rearranging and organizing my house, I'm swapping out ill-fitting clothes for better fitting, and today, I chopped off my hair.  It's a fresh start time of year.

(Anyone else immediately think of Edith from Downton Abby?  Meh.  Oh well.)


Started This Post a Month Ago

I guess the videos aren't working.  I'll have to try to fix it sometime.

I spent about an hour uploading photos and video a while ago, but didn't get it finished.  Then life got busy.  Then Brian left.  And I'm not in the mood to go back and edit like I intended.  So this just is what it is.

Yikes, Asher!

Ummm?  (He was about to cough - beginning a terrible asthma attack for which we had to leave and come back again another time.)

I guess this was the best he could do.  Weirdo.

I just love this one. ♥

I was trying to capture Hollyn's sweentess when she was sick early last month.  I wasn't able to capture any of the really cute stuff, so you'll just have to take my word for it.  It was adorbs!

At the Model Train Show with Grandma and Grandpa Stevenson, Nov 2014

I couldn't find her one day at Jenny's, while there in November.  When I finally did I saw just her top half sticking out of this pit.  She just smiled and waved.  Lol
A blustery day that for some reason attracted all the neighborhood kids outside.  Hollyn had to join.

She got herself all ready and headed out.


Mustache Day at school.  P.S.  Eye liner is PERFECT for that!

Below are some of the family pictures Dad took in September

I probably was going to upload more of these - this is where I left off before having to pop off the computer.  Maybe I'll finish later.
