Too many to put on one post. Enjoy!

It's a miracle!

Than graduated!!! It's been a LONG road since he graduated with his undergrad in May 2003! But we made it! It was a crazy rush at the end, when all the sudden it was a possibility that he could pull it off this semester, but he made it!

I had great ideas to make shirts for the kids and I, and Than's parents.... but with work and everything it didn't happen. But I did make a shirt for me, and order some necklaces online from Oriental Trading and other decorations! Sorry it's sideways!

More decorations

Decorations amongst the Christmas decorations!

This sucked to make, but turned out cool!

Do you know how hard it is to find grey balloons? VERY! But I finally did, and even bought a helium tank, which the kids LOVED once I showed them what happens when you inhale it!

Cheesy pic before grad with Than's mom and step dad

A nice picture now

Can you see him in the middleish....

As part of a house warming gift the previous home owners left us this cute outfit. It was a bit big (12 mo size and she's only 7 mo) but it was PERFECT! Then with an added touch of a hair bow by me, it was complete!

We had quite a full house: Than's mom and step dad, Than's dad and brother and sister, my parents and sister! The kids eating at the table. Papa Murphy's Pizza!

With our nice new table, we only needed one extra chair to fit all the adults around it!
It was a great weekend, and luckily no one went into labor, because I was supposed to work, but was just on call! Prayers are answered!

Annual Family Picture

We had our annual family picture in our jammies last weekend. This year I decided to have us all in white shirts with our initial on our tummies from our jammie fabric. I think the turned out pretty cute! Unfortunately Trestin and I where in the middle of an pink eye outbreak (luckily with good hand washing it was localized to just the two of us), so don't look too close at our eyes! I'm happy with the portrait people at JC Pennys, and again wasn't let down. Cute poses and then their "doctoring up" of the photos was cute!
Too bad this is like $30, it was cute!

I really liked this one with our legs and Cassiah! CUTE idea! I got one of them!

That's one good lookin' present from Santa! Notice how Cassiah has a death grip on Garrick's shirt, right before that she about fell off, so she wasn't gonna let go now!

Cute on of our four kids!

Cassiah is chillin'

We lined up almost just right, by accident in the two pictures!

This is the main pose I bought, that will go on the wall! In years past they only got head shots and you couldn't see our pants very much if at all. This year they did awesome!
