And baby makes seven...

Too much time has passed since my last post! Our family has grown once again.

We welcomed William Richard Carl Burrows III to our family on February 1st, 2012. He was born at 12:27 pm, weighing 7 lbs 8 oz, and 19 inches long. He is carrying on his dad and grandpa's name and we call him Liam.

He is now already 8 weeks old and is growing much too fast, as they all seem to do! Allyssa is now 12 and in middle school in the 6th grade, Emma is 8 and in 2nd grade, and Jacob is 4 and is in pre-K. We will be celebrating his 5th birthday next month. And he is already registered for Kindergarten in the fall! Where does the time go?

This summer we plan to stay close to home but we are hoping to travel back to visit family this Christmas!

Happy Birthday Isabella!

Isabella turned one year old on Sunday! I still can't believe how fast the time has gone by! We had a gathering of friends at our home to celebrate. Bella's godparents, Robert and Michelle, and their daughter, Emma, drove up from Olympia to join us!
We had friends from church and friends form the old neighborhood!

Isabella dove right into her cake...

She opened lots of presents and loved playing with the paper, of course!

Now, onto Christmas... woo hoo!

It's Been Too Long...

Wow! It's been months since I last posted! We're now into month 3 of school and making plans for the holidays! Homeschooling is going well but we are still figuring out what works best for us. The girls and I are all really enjoying it! Here are the girls hard at work...

Jake has started preschool and loves it! Here he is on his first day! And his green soldier costume from Toy Story was so popular that he won 2 costume contests in it!

This is also birthday season for us! Emma just had her 7th birthday. Here she is in her Ladybug Halloween costume...

Bella will be turning 1 in only a few weeks and Allyssa will be turning 11 at the end of December! Allyssa is posing in her Bumble Bee costume and Bella is in her skunk costume!

They're all getting so big so fast! It's hard to believe how much time has gone by...
Bill and I have been married for 12 years.
Our oldest child is turning 11 and our youngest is turning 1.
We've been living in Washington for 2 1/2 years!

Where has the time gone?

I can't believe that 4 months have gone by! I have so many pictures it will be hard to narrow down to my favorites!
We've moved into the new house! I don't have many pictures yet... too many boxes on the way! But I will get some up soon!

The summer has been busy so far. Besides moving, we have been to Forest Park Petting farm and Playground and Big Four Ice Caves. We spent 4th of July with neighbors in our old neighborhood. We went to the Everett Naval Base open house where Bill and Allyssa got to take a tour of the Aircraft Carrier, the USS Abraham Lincoln, and we watched a 4th of July parade in Everett.

March Update

Tummy Time! Bella hates to spend time on her tummy but we were having a good day so I had to get the camera! She's now 3 1/2 months old. Where does the time go? She smiling, laughing, and babbling! She still rarely takes more than power naps during the day but she does sleep well at night!

Emma and Allyssa participated in their school's Science Fair last week. They did an experiment titled 'Boiling Ice?" where they observed and reported the results of adding ice to boiling water. They each received a participation ribbon and had a great time!

Jake has become a little Puzzle Master! He has already gotten bored with the 25 piece puzzles and moved on to the 60 and 100 piece ones! During the day, the floor is just littered in various puzzles! The ones that have stumped him are the lenticular puzzles with dual images. They are pretty tough!
