Holidays 2015

After Aunt Brenda and Uncle Bob left it was time to get the inside of the house decorated. This year seemed to take me weeks to do it.

I always have lots of help.


We got a new puppy, Rocket is his name. 



The boys working on their gingerbread houses.

This year there were a couple of us that missed Christmas Eve at Nana's house.  Lauren was just getting over the flu and Ian was diagnosed with the flu that morning of Christmas Eve.  I stayed behind with the sickies and told Mike to take the two other boys.  I was sure to call Pam and tell her to send some enchiladas home with Mike though.

Lauren opening her gifts from Nana/Papa and Aunt Tiff/Uncle Justin.

Logan and Travis were so eager to have Ian open his gifts.


Christmas morning the boys checking out their loot.

Logan following instruction on putting his legos together.

Lauren helping the boys make designs with their Perler beads.

Ian is tuckered out.  Dang flu.

Travis with his Little Shopkins that all the boys wanted.

The new game room addition.  Mike and I put that together Christmas Eve night without anyone waking up. AMAZING!

Looks like Rocket had a great first Christmas!

Thanksgiving 2014

This year was somewhat different than past Thanksgivings. This time we had Aunt Jessica come visit from Cali and of course, Aunt Brenda came to visit. But you will see that we had a special guest show up a couple days before Thanksgiving.

The Aunts being brave and playing cards with the boys!

SURPRISE!!  Uncle Bob showed up this year!

Don't be alarmed..Lauren's mimosa was without alcohol

I'm not even sure how to caption this picture ;-) But I love it.

The cousins eating out on the patio!

While Mike took Lauren to a mandatory volleyball meeting, I talked Bob into "helping" me put up some Christmas lights.

Of course, Ian wants to help Uncle Bob with anything.  Bob said he has never put up Christmas lights in 70 degree weather!

Another 5

Another 5 months flew by without an update here on the blog.  I seem to post our happenings on Facebook more than I do here, but I'll try to recap summer, the boys birthday,start of first grade and high school, HS volleyball, Homecoming, and Halloween.  See we have been busy ;-)

Bev and Dad made it down for the boys birthday!


Grandpa and Travis playing

The waterslide was a hit.


 
The boys at the Children's Museum in GR on our home trip

Last picture before headed to the airport
(it was caption earlier that it was the Johnson/Scott crew - but I'm missing Katie AND Bob. We are going to be better about getting the whole Johnson crew in pictures from now on;
less talking and more picture taking ;-)


Hanging out on our neighbors boat during the summer.

Camper of the week on the very first day!
First day of 1st grade and 9th grade!

Freshman "A" team starting player!

My pretty girl; her first Homecoming dance
We lost our 20 yr old kitty, Mageera, just a few days before Halloween.

Superheroes and a Villain
With the holidays upon us, I'll try to update more often, but that's what I said 5 months ago.

It's been awhile

It's been almost 5 months since I blogged.  I think that is the longest I have gone without updating this.  It took me 28 days just to write this post....I might need an intervention ;-)

So what has happened in 4 months?  Well let's see....

Someone got their braces off

Lauren turned 14! 14! (yes I'm still in denial)

She has played another season in Lacrosse.  She even played half of the year playing on the JV team as goalie.


Easter



Chase by the Lake
The only pic of 100 that you can see all three boys.  Ian is to the right, Travis in the middle and Logan is right behind Travis' left shoulder.



Elementary Lock In
Ian was the only one that would touch the snake.
Mama and her fellow PTA officers were able to secure a human hamster ball for all the kids to use!

Field Day
 Lauren waited years to be able to help with Field Day at her elementary school!





This summer is going to be busy; although nothing is really planned other than a trip from Grandpa Johnson and Bev, the boys birthday party, 4th of July, a trip to Michigan, Lauren starts volleyball on August 4 and school starts the last week in August. I'm whipped already!
