An update...

No, we haven't ceased to exist we have just been crazy busy doing nothing but everything all at the same time. So here's the update.

Alex returned from his mission (pretty sure he was gone for five years, not two).

Which meant Alex and Ava and Addy came to play.

Then there was Halloween.

Then Thanksgiving at our house (sorry no pics just a lot of food and people stuffing their faces ALL DAY LONG).
Then Tate turned one (where did that year go?).

Then Christmas with a ginormous tree (it was over 12', our best tree yet).

Our typical New Years' celebration of games and more food.

As for 2010 we've started with a bang!

Knee scoping (both knees) for me in January with loads of help from family and friends and lots of painful recovery. No injury that caused such fun just good ol' fashioned rheumatoid arthritis which Mom swears is from her side so if you're in that blood line and and in random pain you may want to get it checked out. (This has offered Phil many opportunities to make cracks at his "80 year old" wife, however, he went well beyond my expectations for helping with kids so he's allowed a few cracks plus he's always game for carrying me up the stairs when needed.)

New business ventures for Phil as well as continuing the "old" ones (with Phil I'm pretty sure there will ALWAYS be new ventures, every day of the week).

And for the girls-gymnastics, ballet and ski lessons galore! As well as preschool and kindergarten. (And Alex has taken it upon himself to try to get Tate to walk, we wish him the best.)

Now on to the rest of 2010!

you had surgery? Dang, that sounds fun . . . or not. Hope all is well! I can't believe how big Tate is. We will be coming out in April so I will have to see you guys then!

Well reading about all of your hustle and bustle has made me want to take a nap for you. But it looks like fun (besides the knee surgery part)!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Christmas tree! It's beautiful, and the best one I have seen in a LONG time! - I think you handle "busy" and "crazy" with ease - way to go! You are amazing!

Oh my goodness! I hope your knee is feeling completely better by now! Your girls are all so beautiful and I'm pretty sure you must have amazing abs from laughing all the time. Miss you guys!
