The Barn is FINISHED!!!!

Well, almost finished.  Aaron just needs to paint the doors and put it some lighting and it will be done.  We have already unloaded the POD (Thank the Lord we no longer have to pay for that!) and most of the other barn that we are tearing down.  I am so proud of Aaron and the boys!  They worked so hard in the heat to get it done and it looks GREAT!  Here are some pics of the process:

Silas turned 6!

Silas is now 6.  He asked for a Wii Sports game, a movie and a Vacuum Cleaner?!?!  So, we made sure to get him a real one, so he can put it to use :)
Happy Birthday, Silas!

My ballerina!

After going to soccer games for my girls for the last 6-7 years, I finally have a ballerina/tap dancer I am going to get to watch this year!  She had her first lesson yesterday and she is a natural.  She will have 2 recitals during the year and a big one in May.  Can't wait!

Our 7th Day of School Pics

Everyone else posts their 1st day of school pics.  Thought it would be fun to show you our pics even though it is our 7th day of school today.  None of them are perfect, but it gives you an idea of what it's like to take pictures with 7 kids :) (and a dog who likes to photo bomb)

Honor Star Crowning and Friends Graduation 2013

Sadie had her Honor Star Crowning and Lizzy graduated from Friends this past Saturday.  Both girls worked very hard for the last 3 years to achieve this.  Here are some pics of their BIG DAY!  We started off getting a pedicure the day before.  Then,  I took them to the salon the morning of the crowning to have their hair done.

Laura did an excellent job on their hair.  It took over two hours, because they have soooo much hair :)

Sadie with her friends:  Gracie, Janae, and Sarah
