Disney Highlights

Princess Abi and Cinderella. What an awesome day for our girls to be able to meets some Royalty and have breakfast in Arial's Gratto. Eliana got star struck and wouldn't pose without me. I am having trouble uploading the pics so I will post more later.

Life Goes by fast!!!

Eliana being her sweet beautiful self

Lucas busy exploring tree bark with all of his senses including taste

Abi's first day of Kindergarten

My babies are gowing up. It seems like I am running to keep up with my kids as they reach new stages of development. Lucas changes before our very eyes with new words or actions that scream, "look at me I'm the baby and I want your full attention." Eliana is communicating and reasoning in ways that let me know she also is growing up and Abigail... well Abi started Kindergarten in September. Who knew that a child starting school was such an emotional process for Mom's? I suppose every mom who has done it before me! Abi is attending Sauvie Island Academy which is a wonderful school and just the right place to help John and I transition from having her at home 24/7 to letting her go 3 hours a day. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy:)

The Lee Girlz update

Cleaning the Bathroom:)

Anders, Chandler, Lincon, Abigail, and Eliana all cramned into the Hagen's playhouse.

So Peaceful.

What can I say... they are so much fun.
Abi is totally into costumes and style right now. The thing I love the most is that its her own unique style. She is my big helper who thinks she is 21 already knowing more then me. She loves with her whole heart and is always willing to give if she thinks some else is in need. Abi loves to wear dresses. In fact today she assured me should wouldn't get cold wearing a summer dress outside (even though it had been windy and rainy all day) because at that very moment the sun was peaking out from behind a cloud. Abi is our smart, joy filled daughter.
Elli is so full of imagination I have a hard time figuring out if she is pretending or really in need of something. I love watching her make up games and tell stories about Pumas and Bears that are around. She is always willing to sacrifice herself if the Bear (daddy) has gotten Abi. Elli is also very musical. She will sit at the piano and play and sing an entire song. Don't get me wrong she has no idea what she is doing but she has great rythem. In the last month she has given up her Binky, potty trained, and moved into a twin bed. I guess she decided she is a big girl now.
As for me... I am trying to live and love every day. I feel like I have grown so much in the past year learning how to communicate or not communicate, learning how to love as an action not a feeling and learning how to trust in the Lord. God is so good!!! I am so thankful for my family who run me ragged sometimes but at the end of the day I am always reminded of what is really important. Maybe soon I will actually get some pictures of John and I on the blog.


Just looking at these photos makes me want to cry. Lucas has changed so much in the past 12 weeks I almost forgot how tiny he was when I brought him home. Only God could create something that beautiful.

12 Weeks

The Fun Begins!!! Sometimes having extremely big babies can be hard... like when you have to hold them for extended periods of time and your shoulder and forearms burn from exhaustion. Or when your 12 week old baby fits into 6 month clothes leaving behind so many cute outfits that he never even wore. However, big babies can fit into fun toys at a much earlier age giving mommy one more option to use when she needs free hands. Yay for big babies!!!

11 weeks

Watch out ladies here comes a heart breaker. Wow this little guy has so much personality and a smile that lights up a room. I am so thankful that Lucas is growing out of his super fussyness and into a content and happy baby.
