A Day in the Life…

Happy BIRTH-Day Dekker!

| July 19, 2013

(And it only took me nearly 4 months to blog about it! I guess that shows how busy #3 makes things!) Dekker Jonathan Martin Born Friday, March 22nd, 2013 at 11:09pm 6 pounds, 10 ounces! It was a crazy day!  I had to work that day.  And I had contractions all day, but nothing that […]

Big Boy!

I am 3 months! And I have cute feet!


| June 11, 2013

Beautiful weather = go outside to play! Ah, I love summer! This girl is built for speed!   Roar!  Boys and their Big Wheels!

Smile Box.

| June 11, 2013

Talk, talk, talk.  Smile , smile, smile! Here’s especially to you, Great Grandma Alice, who hasn’t met him yet!  Dekker says hi! (Turn the volume up!) Jon has him trying to sit up a lot lately (Dad training times…), so I think that’s why he keeps trying here…  :)  Maybe they should work on potty […]

2013 Piano Recital!

| June 8, 2013

It’s that time of year again – Breyton just finished his piano recital! This year he played “Animal Fair” and he did great!  You can watch below… What’s fun about this song is that he played 2 hands, two different chords and changed keys at one point!  Pretty awesome.   Good job Breyton! He loves […]

Best thing to cheer a little girl up out of her “post nap funk” … … A baby brother, for sure!

Three Year Old Beauty

| May 24, 2013

Our little girl is growing up… She had been asking if we would take birthday pictures for her like we did for Breyton… Excited.  New shoes also helped! This little girl loves shoes and clothes.  Although, anymore, if it doesn’t twirl or resemble a princess or ballerina, it’s no longer an option! She makes at […]

What Dad does with baby when he needs two hands…

Happy Mother’s Day

| May 12, 2013

I love my little family.  I love my loving husband.  Throughout the day, Breyton would look at me sweetly and say, “Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.”  He can be so sweet! After picking out flowers, we spent the afternoon outside planting and playing.  Even Dekker did a good job in his bouncy seat/swing!  We ended our […]

Someday My Prince Will Come…

| May 11, 2013

Happy 3rd birthday to our beautiful Princess Mara!  She is a true joy to our family and we were blessed when God gave her to us! I wondered if I should hold off for a princess party until she was 4 or 5 – that she may enjoy it or appreciate it more.  But I’m […]

The Big Kid’s Birthday!

| April 29, 2013

We have a 5 year old! Wow, I feel old. This boy has turned a corner – an all boy corner.  I think the day he walked through the 5 year old door, things got louder and rowdy-er but still a lot of fun mixed in!  B is starting to love to tell jokes – […]

Papa Loves His Babies & Fishing

| April 13, 2013

Papa came to town to meet the new little man! And to fish the ponds in our neighborhood! But we needed fishing poles… and training!  So we practiced casting in the family room with play fish. And put our skills to work outdoors! And we were awesome. Lots of sunfish.  As fast as you could […]

We’re going to be best friends, I just know it.

All Things Easter

| March 30, 2013

Still catching up on blogs… Well, I’m glad I cooked 2 dozen eggs for dying for Easter!  The kids blew through them!  Especially Mara, who does one tiny thing to an egg and calls it good, wanting to move onto the next.  Or wants to put an egg in every color and go from there!  […]
