Ripken is 6 Mon.

How time flew by, and now he is 6 mon. It is bitter sweet to me. He is such a sweet heart he makes being a mother to three easy. (as easy as it can be)So I though I would list a few new tricks he can do now.
*He can roll over
*He can say DA DA (but that still doesnt make his dad be the first to run to his side :))
*He sleeps from 9-6 (not bad)
*He hates rice cereal
*He can make any person smile... Just by smiling at them
*He is huge for his age
* He has beautiful long eye lashes

Best Big Sister Ever :)

Maycee is such a great help with her little brothers. I think the space between the two of them is just right. (she is 5 he is 6 mon.)
Sooooo Big
I love it when babies put their hands on your mouth... he wants to talk too
Can you feel the love ;)
Ripken has just started giving kisses, It is so cute when they grab your face and lay a big slobery kiss on you. Maycee thinks he slobbers a little too much.. But I LOVE it. Why do babies have to grow up?? They were all soo cute at one time, I mean they are still so cute:) (Maycee was feeling bad I was taking pics of Rip and said why do you all ways take pictures of him and not me... Girls are super funny)

Will The Snow Ever Stop?

So it is STILL snowing here in Idaho!! but there is one good thing it was snowman snow so we built a snow man. The first of the year, all the other snow was tooo soft. The kids LOVED it.
The kids were soo proud of the snowman... they were alittle mad that we didnt have any pickels. Like the snowman in what snow men do at night.
The kids kept falling through the snow in some places it was waist high...
Bostin making a snow angel. He is so funny he would lay down then he would call to me like the little brother Ralphy on the Christmas Story "I cant get up!"
PLEASE kiss the snow good bye!!! Please, I am sooo super sick of the snow I just want to see the grass (even if it is yellow any color is better than white)
