I will try this again...

So, I got the first update done with the intent to have the second update done soon after. Well, things got a little busier than I thought. The last week of October I started working at Costco at night. I was working 5 nights a week and was not getting home until 10 p.m.. I was really not in the mood to blog. So, I have stopped working and things are getting back in order. So here is update 2. Enjoy.

Krew's Birthday Pictures.....

Krew's 1st birthday...
We planned on doing a birthday party for Krew the day we got home from Utah on 10-10-10, however our plans were scrapped when Zane went into the hospital. So, we did not celebrate his birthday until the end of the month. He shared his birthday with Aunt Janette. We had a big family breakfast with lots of fruit and sausage for the little guy. Our traditional doughnuts don't work for him. He 0pened gifts and even had a cupcake made without egg and milk. It was yummy.
This year has gone by so fast. I have enjoyed cuddling and snuggling you as long as I can. You love to sleep next to me and you are a big time mommas boy. At times, I get a little frustrated with it, however, most of the time I love it. You are a smart little guy and are into everything. You always try to do what the big kids do and you are just as big as the rest of them. You are my sweet angel and I love you.
Happy Birthday Krewbie
You Silly Boy....

I have no idea why, but ever since Krew was able to crawl he loves to put shoes on his hands. He loves to play with shoes. He will find any pair of shoes and put them on his hands and walk around.

Halloween 2010...

Halloween this year was pretty crazy. Zane was just finishing up his treatment and I started working at Costco that week. So, I was unable to go trick-or-treating with the kiddos. Thus, we have no pictures of the kids dressed up. Emilee was a dancer, Garrit was Indiana Jones, Zane was Jedi, and Krew was a fighter pilot.

Happy Birthday Junior!!
We went up to Utah for Thanksgiving and while we were there we celebrated Junior's birthday. We order dinner from Wingers and had dinner, gifts, and cake at home. Just the way Dad wanted it to be. He loves things simple and doesn't like people to make a big deal out of him. However, he loves to make big deals out of everyone else birthday.
Happy Birthday My Love!
Merry Christmas 2010.....
We had such a great Christmas. On Christmas Eve we went over to Janette's house and had the yummiest dinner. Symen had put together a Mexican dinner that was to die for. I can't wait to do it again. We played games and ate. We brought the kiddos home, and they found a gift from the elves on the front porch. SUPRISE, it was... pajamas.
Christmas morning it was just the 6 of us, something we have not done since Emilee was a baby. We opened gifts and played with toys all morning. Emilee got girl stuff, clothes, wallet, jewelry. Garrit and Zane both got wiggle cars, books and toys. Krew got cars and fruit snacks. We enjoyed a Christmas dinner at Grandma Becky's. The kids all got movie cups, popcorn shirts, and movie passes. The fun did not end there. Grandma and Grandpa VanderLinden came over Christmas night and the kids got all kinds of fun toys.

It was so wonderful spend this time of year with the family. The Lord has blessed me with such a great family.

SLEEPING KIDS... believe it or not this was all in the same night.

You never know what you are going to find...

When you have boys. One day lazy Saturday the boys decided that they were going to catch a leper con. The best part about it, was that Emilee really got into it and would set the trap leaving little toys or goodies.
Andrew and Makenzie's wedding.... Zane is convinced that Andrew is his brother. He loves Andrew so much. Every time Andrew is around, Zane is always by his side. Zane was the ring bearer for the wedding. He was the cutest thing ever and did a great job.
The wedding was beautiful. Watching the two of them reminded me so much of Symen and I when we got married. So young, so in love, the world was ours. The day we got married I thought love didn't get any better. I love Symen so much deeper and stronger now and I know it will continue to grow the older we get.
It is hard to believe that my sister is a mother-in-law!!
She looked great, she is one hot mother-in-law.
