Addisyn is on the left and Hartley is on the right.
Amber was able to come to Illinois for a few days, so Hartley and Addisyn were able to meet each other and have their picture taken together. Such Beautiful gifts from God! Our family is so blessed. Hartley and Addisyn both decided to come 2 weeks before their actual due dates, and they are exactly 3 weeks apart in age.
Jami is holding Addisyn and Jessica is holding Hartley:)
Jami and Addisyn are doing wonderful. Addisyn decided to come 2 weeks early. Jami delivered naturally and did an amazing job. I had the wonderful experience of being Jami's birthing coach and was able to watch little Addisyn enter this world. Such a wonderful gift! I will treasure that forever!
Jordan and Amber had a beautiful baby girl. She is so perfect. Mommy and baby are doing wonderful. We are going down to Florida March 28th so we can see our new granddaughter and also spend some time with Jordan and Amber.
Well, I have decided to start off the new year with a post each month about one of our kids to keep everyone updated on how they are doing. For January, I am going to do Jenny. Jenny is in 7th grade this year. She is going to turn the BIG "13" this July. Another teenager in the house...Lord help us!!!! LOL. Jenny started out the school year playing basketball on the East Prairie 7th grade team. He basketball team did awesome. They finished their season 15-4. They won their Little Okaw Conference but were defeated in the championship game at Regionals to end their season. Now we are full swing into Volleyball. Jenny has been playing really well. She needs to work more on her serves, but so far, they volleyball team is 5-0. Volleyball will be over mid March, and then she will be done with sports until summer when she plays softball. We definately need a break from March to June. Especially with 2 new babies coming:)
This year at Christmas, the girls thought it would be fun for all of us to wear footed pajamas Christmas morning. So, I went along with them and got me a pair of pajamas. It was alot of fun. Might have to start wearing matching pajamas every christmas...New fun tradition:)
The Boys got jersey's of their favorite football player for Christmas. So here are some fun pics of the guys and their jersey's. Jake is a Viking fan, Austen wanted an Alstott throwback jersey for the Buccaneer's and Jordan wanted a Clay Matthews jersey for the Packers..and of course Jerry threw on his Polamalu jersey and proceeded to remind the boys that his has a Super Bowl emblem on it..LOL...A House Divided:)
