Wow, I missed February, but here is what we did:) Even if it was a short month, we managed to make it busy::) We have been to the doctor a few times with Dalton and my baby has tubes put in on March 16th at 8am:( But, it will be for the better and his hearing should improve so we are looking forward to it getting over with. Sadi and Dakota both just celebrated Dr. Suess's Birthday. Sadi got to eat green eggs & ham:) Dakota got to dress up as Thing 1:) Dawson has just our baby, eatting food, learning to sit up, and sleeping whenever I snap my finger:) What more could you ask for:)
Dakota just had baseball tryouts last weekend and he did great! So proud of him, and he is so excited to play that I can't help but get excited for him!! We just went to the store last night and bought a new glove, cleats, hat, balls, sweat bands, the works!! He is ready.
Nolan and I are excited to say that we are coming home at the end of March!! Nolan is going to drive us to Avoca the last weekend of March, he will fly out for the week of work and come back to drive us home!! We will head to Des Moines and then Postville after Avoca. Dakota will be celebrated his 6th birthday while we are on spring break and we will also celebrate Easter! Here are some pictures!
Miss you all and see you in less then a month!! OH And don't forget that the kids and are going to make out annual JUNE IOWA trip again this year!!

So for some reason all my pictures are from most recent to oldest:) Dakota put out cookies, milk, and reindeer feed on Christmas Eve and sure enough Santa came!! The kids were pretty excited and had present overload on Christmas morning, they got to play for a couple hours and then we all went to church in the morning and had a nice short service of 20 minutes!! We had some close neighbors over for supper which made up for not having family around:)
We went on a family vacation the weekend before Christmas to Gatlinburg, TN. It was absolutely beautiful in the smokey mountains. We stayed at a waterpark resort and the kids had a blast! Thank you Nikki & Curt for the gift card we loved the resort! We got to go to Ripley's Aquarium the next day and walk along main street, had ice creme at 10 am in the morning and then drove home to sleeping children:)
Nolan and I got to go to Mexico for Nolan's work and let me just say THANK YOU MOM & DAD HUINKER!! My parents got to go to the doctors twice, overnight ear infection, and then the flu all in 3 short days:) We are going to give you guys a break for awhile and the kids are excited for Grandma Cheri to come and babysit in April for a work trip to Palm Springs.
Enjoy the photo bomb and I will make sure to get on here sooner!

We had family pictures taken by our good friend Rachel Shlitt in November and they couldn't have turned out more perfect! I put a few up that were not on our Christmas card, enjoy!
