I can't believe Evan is 6 months old already!! Time flies and before we know it he will be in Kindergarten!! Total he has 6 teeth (2 on the bottom and he recently got 4 on the top in the past couple of weeks). He loves to be on the floor and army crawl anywhere he can, it won't be long and he will be crawling to keep up with his older brother and sisters. We even made it to his 6 month check up before he got his first ear infection!! He reminds me so much of Sam when having to give him his medicine because as soon as he sees the syringe, his lips smack together and he tries to turn his head away. Too bad mom and dad are pros at giving medicine to uncooperative babies (he can than his big sister, Sam for that one). Rex and he still like to cuddle on the ottoman and he absolutely loves to listen to you read to him. I just love the picture of him, Katarina and Ian reading because he is so enthralled with Katarina talking, it was absolutely adorable. He smiles all the time and now when a stranger talks to him he will nuzzle right into your neck, I love it!! He is such a good baby, we couldn't ask for anything better.

Happy Halloween

This Halloween I went as a "Spider Web Witch", Evan was a 3 eyed monster, Ian was a Star Wars Clone and Katarina was Mary Poppins. Sam didn't really dress up because she was in a basketball tournament which her team took 3rd place in!! So I guess you could say she was a basketball player but she didn't get to go Trick or Treating. We met Christina and Alan downtown Chippewa on Friday to Trick or Treat at the businesses. On Saturday we went to visit my Grandpa Ronnie and made it a whole 3 blocks for Trick or Treating due to the extremely cold and windy weather. That's OK, less candy for mom and dad to snack on. Overall it was a fun Halloween. I helped out with Ian's class at school play some games and we made a large Pumpkin cupcake cake which turned out awesome and had lots of fun baking treats.
