William James Ellison

We are so pleased to finally announce the arrival of Baby Liam! He is so cute! His big sisters and brother love him so much! He is a sweet baby! He is doing well and we are home. Some of the pictures are a little dark, sorry. We are so happy to have him here! He was born on Monday, May 19th. He was 8 lbs. 2.6 oz. He was 19.5 inches long. He was born at 12:58 p.m. He was posterior and the cord was around his neck. The doctor vacuumed him out, unwrapped the cord and he was fine! He is healthy and happy. (after the second epidural attempt finally worked, his mom was healthy and happy as well!)

Tommy's Pirate Adventure

Tommy loves to run. Sometimes his feet move faster than the rest of him. Sometimes he falls. Sometimes he falls face first on the sidewalk while on a pirate treasure hunt. Luckily I was home and they called me to come pick him up in the car so they didn't have to walk him home with his face bleeding! He had a big scab on his nose and right under his nose on his lip. He also had a scuff and bruise on his forehead. He has since picked the scab off and is healing nicely!

Spring Dance Recital

From one recital to the next! Silje and Emma's spring dance recital was so fun! They love to dance! They both did a great job!

Kaycie's 3rd Annual Pirate Birthday Party

Kaycie loves pirates. She has always loved pirates. So, what would be more fitting for a birthday party than a treasure hunt? We couldn't think of anything better, so for the last three 3 years, we have had a pirate treasure hunt. We all dress up and run around having fun.

Violin Recital

Silje and Emma had their spring violin recital. It was Emma's first recital! They were both wonderful! Emma opened the show with Pop Goes the Weasel. Silje played The Happy Farmer. It was so much fun!

Kennecott Copper Mine

We went with my family to Kennecott Copper Mine. The kids had so much fun! Tommy loved the big trucks!
