Week 6

CJ with his best buddy Berit.  They have alot of fun together.  CJ is so bummed that they aren't in the same class this year, but we try to get them together as often as we can for playdates!  We decided to do a little Valentine's shoot with them and got some great pictures!

Week 5

So very proud of my Jayde.  She has been having such a great season with her first year of basketball.  She finally got her basket this game (in fact she got two!)  She was on cloud nine for the rest of the day!  Here she is warming up before the game.

Week 4

The kids love their "Cozy Hugs".  They are microwaveable aromatherapy Animals.  Every night we spend around 12 minutes warming them up before going to bed!  They also like to warm them up when they don't feel good or after they have been outside on a cold day.  I think this was one of the best Christmas presents (birthday for Jayde) that they could ever have gotten!  When they are feeling generous they will even share them with me! :)

Week 3

Snow Day! Well atleast it was for the little guys. For the rest of the kiddos it was just a 2 hour delay (though they really should of canceled). It's still coming down out there and it's not supposed to stop for a while. So maybe our snow day will be tomorrow. After I got the big kids to school the little guys (and Cassie) went out to play in it for a few minutes (literally)! With the wind blowing it was a bit chilly to be out for too long. Cassie liked the snow too and even after she did a face plant she still didn't cry, just got up, picked some snow up and threw it in the air with a big smile on her face! Here's one of the pictures I got in those quick few minutes of snow play! I told CJ to pick up some snow and blow on it to see what would happen! They thought it was pretty funny to blow snow on eachother too!

Week 2

Unfortunately asthma is a part of life for my little man. He's pretty good about telling us when he needs to have a treatment (though when he is gasping for breath between coughing fits, we kind of get the picture). We usually end up in the ER atleast once a year for Jaxon's asthma, though thankfully (knock on wood) we have done pretty good so far. I don't think we ended up in the ER last year (2011) and hopefully we'll keep out of the ER this year as well.

Week 1

My sweet little monkey. Can't believe she is going to be two next month. I told myself that once she's two I'm going to get rid of that binky. She's still pretty attatched to that binky of hers....wondering just how hard it's going to be to ween her off of it.

Happy New Year Everyone!

My first post of the new year!  Hard to believe it is 2012 already where did 2011 go?  We had a great Christmas, the kids enjoyed opening their presents and having a break from school.  The kids started back up again yesterday (Monday).  It was a little rough getting everyone up in the morning again and getting back to a routine.  I admit that I had a rough time getting up too, we definitely liked our lazy mornings the past couple weeks.  But on the other hand it's nice to have eveyone back in school and back on a routine again.  Of course that also means all of the extra-curricular activities have started back up again as well.  I think we have stuff going on pretty much every day of the week.  Yesterday we had Boy Scouts and soccer.  Today we have volleyball and two basketball practices.  And these are just the activities for the three oldest kids....what am I going to do when all 6 of them are doing something?!  It's going to be crazy that's for sure!

Last year I tried to attempted the 1 picture a day for a year....I didn't quite make it (got about half way through).  So this year I'm going to attempt it again, except I will be doing the one picture a week for a year...it's all about baby steps!  I figure if I can make it through this year doing one picture a week than maybe I'll be able to do a picture a year for 2013.  I'll also try to keep the blog updated with all the going ons of the Crowe's!  So keep your eyes peeled for some pictures coming soon! :)
