Three winters in a row!  I will make these kiddos smile for the "sled picture" every year until they are old and gray :)  It's tradition!!  Thank goodness for the little bit of snow we got this morning because I had yet to capture the sled pic for this year.  Yikes!  Got it just in time :)  Thanks kids for being so willing to say "cheese!"  ;)

 A few of my favorite pics from our week in California for my brother's wedding!

 Jac and Jeff!!

 Izzy and Lucas

Eli and Brandt dancing the night away!

We had an amazing vacation.  So fun to be a part of such a special day for Jeff and Jac.  So blessed to call her family.  The kids were great.  Nothing was normal-- late dinners, late bedtimes, naps in cars, restaurants they didn't love, etc.   But they rolled with everything.  They were incredible.  We made some great memories.  Kids favorite two things... dancing at the wedding and Knott's Berry Farm amusement park.  Oliver's favorite was running from waves at the ocean.  Loved our time.  Thankful for family.

Happy Birthday, Izzy!

Our Izzy is 5 tomorrow!!  Yay!!!  What an amazing girl.  Izzy is the sweetest and spunkiest girl I know.  She cares deeply for people.  She's always quick to bring one of her siblings something to cheer them up when they are sad.  She puts others first- always.  Her smile can light up a room.  She gets so excited about the little things.  She's crazy social... wants to be around friends constantly.  She keeps me on my toes, being #3 in the line-up.  But I love her to pieces.  Happy Birthday, Izzy Mae!
