When I took this picture of the kids, I told big brother Mason that he needed to hold something for me, but he shouldn't look at it or ask me any questions. He was a trooper, but he did see through the back and he asked me if it was a baby. I told him that it wasn't and that he should not tell people that. FINALLY, on the 23rd, we started telling everyone. It was the greatest surprise EVER! No one was expecting it at all...so we achieved our goal in total surprise!
We are so excited, even though we are all going to be packed in a little house! We will figure it out, though and it will all be just fine!
Merry Christmas everyone from our growing family to yours!!

This picture is from quite a long time ago. This was on our way to Minnesota to celebrate Grandpa's birthday at a fun resort. Mason and his buddy Carrington shared a rather crowded backseat, but seemed to deal with it just fine. Sometimes these two fight like an old married couple, but the next minute Carrington will be following Mason around and looking at him like he is her hero! I love it!
It surprises me how young Mason looks in this picture even though it was only 8 months ago. Since then, he has lost 2 teeth and has a grown up look to him :( I miss my little baby boy!
This is a common site in our kitchen. Koryn loves to be right there as I am cooking or washing dishes. This is one of her favorite things to take out of the cupboard. She will either put it in front of her face and then laugh at herself looking through the holes, or she will put it on the top of her head and walk around like it is her hat!
She also carries a pair of Mason's swimming goggles around and continually tries to get them on her head, but eventually gives up. So, the other night I decided to put them on her and see what she thought. She thought it was pretty funny for a little while, but then wanted them off. I don't think she has carried them around since then!
