UGH.... such a slacker!!!

What can i say?! I feel terrible about not updating in soooo long! so much has happened since I last updated! Julie is doing fabulous in Kindergarten, Logan had a rough start to preschool and is doing much better now, we adopted 2 cats (outdoor b/c of my allergies of corse!), Isabel started walking, she turned one, Logan had his 4th birthday, I turned 30, and Julie earned the nickname "the wall" on her soccer team for being a fantastic goalie!!!! WHEW!!! Life with 3 kids is wonderful and it keeps me insanely busy! (and it only gets worse i hear!!!!) so.... here are a few pics to catch you up quickly and hopefully I will be better about updating!

Isabel's Birthday ~ 1st bottle of the day!!! Isabel, we love you so much and are so glad about God's wonderul plan to include you in our family, you complete us!

We celebrated her party a few days before on labor day.

attempt at a family picture

Yes, we have 2 cats now. My sweet sister in law Lauren talked us into one of the best decisions we have ever made, we LOVE these cats! Boo is the black one, and Tinkerbell is the grayish one, they are sitting in the appropriate chairs before isabel's party!

Izzie showin the love to her big Bubby!

Julie played soccer this fall, and she loved it. We had a great time going out and supporting her! Here is one of her sweet friends, Ella.

Here is Julie earning her nickname, Julie "the wall" Carr. who knew the Carr family would produce such greatness at soccer!!!

Julie playing dress up, notice the pink shin gaurds.... her uncle austin would be proud!!!

Logan with some of his friends at his halloween parade! He was Mario this year, and he is quite the gamer on the nintendo! Logan had a rough start to preschool this year, and he has worked hard to get his behavior much better and we are so proud of him! He had a really hard time with big sister going to kindergarten this fall, but he has finally adjusted :0) He has grown so much and we love to have conversations with him, he is hilarious! My favorite thing though is that he still twirls his hair like when he was little baby :0) He will always be mommy's sweet boy!

Isabel was a bumble bee for school, and a pumpkin for halloween. She had two costumes this year! Julie ended up wearing a costume on 3 different occasions, and was belle for zoo boo, sleeping beauty for church trunk n treat, and minnie mouse on actual halloween!!! thank goodness for the dress up box!!! :0)

Zoo Boo with the homegroup! It was so fun!

My sweet little angels! they were so cute!

Me Jenn and Bridget did race for the cure!!! We froze our hineys off!!!

some pics of Isabel on her actual 1 year birthday. Out of about 42 pictures, only 4 turned out okay! She was being a stinker, but I had a lot of fun!!!

A Little Kindergarten Girl!

My sweet Julie, I cannot believe it is here! I remember 6 years ago when I was pregnant with you sitting in our apartment in Denver, CO and feeling you kick me. I remember thinking about the various stages in your life-like starting Kindergarten- and how I would feel. I feel a lot of sadness, and a lot of joy and a lot of excitement all at once! I am so proud of you, and I am so excited that you are starting this part of your educational journey in a safe, christian environment. Staying home with you the last 5 years has been wonderful, and I hope you have been as blessed as much as I have!

Sweet baby girl's first Christmas

Gotta love a Binky baby!

Just plain cute

First Day of the 3 year old class at preschool!

Christmas 1 year ago

Very first day of Kindergarten!! Mommy hugs before we left :0)

Logan ran over and gave her a hug. He will probably have the hardest time adjusting. He asked me about 4 times yesterday, can we go get Julie yet? I miss my sissy!!!

Julie's wonderful teacher, Miss Claire, she is super sweet, and we love her already

another cute uniform pic!

A few people asked me if I cried, but I didn't in front of Julie when we were leaving her because I didn't want her to be upset. She gets very upset whenever I cry, and I didn't want her to feel scared about us leaving her there with me crying! Travis and I got very teary eyed on the way home from dropping her off, and we were both very quiet. When she came home she said she had a great great day, and that she loves her class and her teacher. She asked me and Logan what we did while she was at school, and we told her we just missed you! and she responded, "I know you did!" Stay tuned for next week when Logan and Isabel start "school"

some summer fun and a little gamer :0)

Julie started Kindergarten today! I am going to do a whole separate post tonight or tomorrow and post more pics and write my thoughts about it! so stay tuned for that! Doesn't she look so cute in her uniform for good ole' Harding Academy?! She was giggling in this pic :0)

Logan LOVES Mario Kart and Mario party, and we have a little gamer on our hands as well. Isabel loves to "bother" her big brother when he gets to play, so we have to give her a controller to play with too! we just don't plug it in

She thinks she is really getting away with something!

One day when it was 120 heat index, we went out at 6:30 one night to play in the water, it was still smokin' outside, as you can tell because my lens kept fogging up!!!! Isabel is a wagon girl, she loves it!

Travis and I have gone on a lot of dates lately because he has been out of town a lot recently! We decided one night to go out and go to Incredible Pizza Company! We had a coupon and so it didn't cost us a fortune. We stayed for 3 hours and had a blast! thanks to Sam and Bonnie for babysitting that night!

Us Before going out

sometimes a girl just needs a nap on her mommy :0) PS, julie took this picture!
