Lucy in pure bliss. All it takes is a nice set of coloring pens.
This is the view I woke up to for a few months. Thankfully, she has sort of stopped doing this.
Lucy and Daddy doing a displaced arm stunt. (we laughed so hard!)
Excuse the unfinished kitchen! But his hair! I <3 p="">
Stephen's nap, slowly got addictive.
I was the last to rise one morning, and this is what I found.
the cat-snakes all in one basket
Iris took helping us snap beans very seriously. She set up a station and donned an apron.
Rubik and ramen. My kids are hooked on Rubik's cubes.
Ladies's Christmas dinner.
I feel like Fleur looks like she's claiming Lucy and not sharing her, and Lucy is totally fine with this.
Mom and Paul hosted a party for the Psych movie!! EEeeek! We were all so excited!
This is how excited my kids are when their progress reports arrive in the mail. I'm not even joking, this is not a staged photo. They love the little extra comments their teachers write about them. See Clyde laughing... yeah... that's because of the things his teachers had to say about him.
When Iris's panic attacks came back, one of the ways they manifested was that showers were terrifying. This was because of the lack of assurance she had that we were still in the house and alive, due to the noise of the shower. We are so thankful to God for easing her fear and for this pup! Fleur was INSTRUMENTAL in helping her heal from this. She guarded Iris during showers for MONTHS. She has only recently successfully retired from her position, and none of us no what we would have done without her. She got to where she would lie down and not move, even if the door was open, until Iris turned the water off. Showers are now no longer an issue for Iris. Praise the Lord!!
