The Many Faces of William

Random pictures of William in no particular order.  He continues to add immeasurable joy to our lives everyday.  His sisters love him and they love when they are able to make him smile, which is often!  We are a busy family of 5, but we love it and wouldn't have it any other way!!

Papi and Grammy Jane meet William

In February my Dad and Jane came to visit and to meet William.  It was so nice to have them there to help with everything.  My Dad even stayed while ZAndrew went on his first post-William TDY, and they watched all 3 kids one night while Andrew and I went out to dinner at Flemings to celebrate our 9 year anniversary!  Of course we stayed busy while they were here, we went to story time, visited the mall and build a bear, chick-fil-a, The Newport Aquarium, and went to a Dayton Gems hockey game.  Thank you both for all of your help!!

Valentine's Day

Andrew made a reservation for us at PF Chang's for a Valentine's Day dinner.  It was wonderful, the girls were very well behaved and William slept through our entire dinner.  Olivia LOVED the chicken fried rice and the crispy green beans and both girls loved using the kid friendly chopsticks.  It was a very nice evening out with the family!

I was smart and had had some ranch dressing in my bag for Abby!

Not the best picture of Olivia but the only one I had of Andrew!

This is how William spent the evening!

Go Pack, Go!!!

Andrew was very excited that the Packers made it to the Super Bowl and even more excited that they ended up winning!  We drove to Michigan to watch the game with Josh and his family in his new "man cave". The drive up was a little tense, the 3 hour drive took us a little over 5 hours due to the snow storm that came out of nowhere after we had already left.  I think we counted 21 accidents/cars in the ditch along the way.  Needless to say, we were very happy when we arrived at Josh's house safely. We had a fun weekend introducing William to his Uncle Josh, Aunt Laura, cousin Tyler and "Gramma" Patty.

Getting ready to cheer on the Packers in the Super Bowl.
Poor Andrew missed a lot of the touchdowns the Packers scored because he was busy helping Olivia go potty and I was busy with William!

Silly faces

Not the best lighting, but I don't have many of me with William.

The Packers newest fan!

Ice Storm--The Second Edition

Here are a few more pictures from the ice storm we had back in the beginning of February.  In my first post about the storm I mentioned that I was happy that we didn't loose power.  Well, that all changed.  At about 10:45 at night we saw a blue flash of light out our sun room window, the lights flickered, and then all was dark.  Fortunately I have a very smart husband who had cranked up our heat a few hours before and got all of our supplies ready in case of such an event.   We hunkered down for the night with lots of layers and extra blankets but even with all this, by 4 am we decided it was too cold in the house for a newborn and called the nearest Marriot to see if they had power and any more rooms left.  We were very lucky to get a room and at about 7am we braved the roads and headed for the warmth, with a stop for breakfast on the way!  The girls had fun watching tv, coloring, and swimming in the hotel pool.  After dinner we decided to call a neighbor to see if the power was back on and it was, so we headed home for the night but kept the hotel "just in case", but lucky for us we didn't!!!

You would never know there was an ice storm looking at these two bathing beauties!!!
