The boys are always so excited when it comes time to help Daddy start seeds for our garden. Here they are planting the trays and adopting which plants will be 'theirs'. I think it is such a cute and sweet tradition.
Nap time with Daddy.

and Jacob playing drums at Uncle Jon's. They are actually able to keep a beat pretty well!
Aunt Ally came to visit for Jon and Mom Yurth's birthday and we were so glad to see her! Here she is visiting our house while Isaac was at school. Come back soon, Ally! We miss you!

Updating March: Ava Turns One!

Oh my goodness, how did this last year just fly on by? We are so proud of our cute, funny, fiesty little Ava who makes us laugh every day with her sweetness and dramatic antics. She walks very confidently now, in fact it only took her two days to finally decide she was ready and she was off! She can say about forty different things, and even some sentences, like "Where did it go?" and "Where's my baby?" (trying to find her doll). She is a silly girl who loves getting chased and tickled, and if you are on the floor, she will tackle you. She "reads" books to herself constantly in the cutest little jibber-jabber you ever did hear. We love our cute little Ava Marie! Ava Marie is so precious to me!
