Guess who's back...

I have really missed this little blog. Life has been crazy, but blogging allows me to stop and really take in everything going on with our family - -big and small.  So, I want to make an attempt to bring back the blog!

Boomer Sooner
It is football season in Oklahoma and we are raising some little Sooners.  We enjoy getting in our game day gear every Saturday and rooting on Oklahoma. 

Ford is obsessed with pumpkins and Halloween.  This is the first year that he’s really got the whole concept – which is making things super fun! He loves the pumpkins on our front porch and every night we go and sit on the porch and check them out.  I’m loving these moments.

                                                                PJs are from Target

We love building!
The boys are very into blocks!  They love to build.  I get a picture from daycare almost every day of Ford and his TALL tower! Keller enjoys building too. He also enjoys just doing just about whatever Ford does.

I have not got to write anything about Keller on the blog yet! Maybe that’s because once he arrived our lives really took off!  Two is definitely more than one. But two is perfect for us.  Keller has made Ford a big brother and fulfilled my dream of having two siblings who will love and support each other long after I’m gone. He is sweet and gentle, but can hold his own with his big brother!  He brings peace to our family.  With him we are complete!

Here are some of my favorites of Keller and some pictures from his first birthday!

First Pumpkin Patch



Camp Keller - Keller's first Birthday Celebration! He loved the family, friends and CAKE! 


First 4th of July - We celebrated at the parade and with some burgers and BBQ!


Keller’s first word was…NORMA!  He loves Norma Jean. And she LOVES him because he feeds her cinnamon toast and chicken nuggets.



And Keller really loves his brother!

2013 Review

We started off 2013 by welcoming Ford Michael Dickinson into the world.  What a way to start the year.  On January 10 our lives were forever changed for the better.  Everything changed. That little baby literally changed our perspective on life in a blink of an eye.  We were no longer just husband and wife, we were a family.  The real deal.  The nurses at the hospital actually let us take that baby home!  And thank goodness they did.  Because this year has been the best year yet.  

January 10 – Ford Michael Dickinson was born. It was a good day.
An EGG-cellent First Easter – Easter eggs, family time and baby sweater vests!
First Father’s Day – I am so thankful for Michael Dickinson.  I always knew he would be a good Dad, but watching him become one has made me love him more and more every day.  Ford and I are both very lucky to have him.

First Family Vacation – Vail, CO
On our way to Vail we stopped in Golden, CO. Michael was born in Golden and it was really special to see where he spent his first years!

Hiking on the Mountain

Dinner on the patio

Coffee with Al!

The US Pro Challenge was taking place while we were in town so we watched it in Breckenridge and Vail.

Last stroll through Vail Village

MOOOOO - First Halloween

First Thanksgiving - Thanksgiving! There is a lot to be thankful for this year. On Michael's side of the family there was a major baby boom so it was so much fun to get all of the babies together.

Thankful for these two guys!

Ford's signature nose scrunch

Always making me laugh

It is hard to get a picture of a group of babies! There were many bloopers from our attempt, but we think this one is probably the best = )

Baby Boom! All of the new parents and babes.

Ford’s First Christmas - Our Ford Man was definitely on the nice list!

Ford and Mickey.  Serious business.

Elmo was a hit!

2013 was a wonderful year and I can't wait to see what 2014 brings. We will be celebrating Ford's first birthday soon and we are excited to be expecting another baby in June!  There are always ups and downs through the year but we are so thankful that we have so much GOOD to focus on. We are definitely counting our blessings each and every day.

Wishing everyone health and happiness in 2014!

Catching Up! Month 4

Month 4 was such a blessing.  It was such a big month for Ford! He reached the major milestone of rolling over and it quickly became his favorite past time.  He is the happiest laying on a blanket, kicking his feet and rollin! Ford Man (nickname of the moment) also started smiling more, giggling and baby talking.  Baby talk is my favorite and we are getting plenty of it!  I have been told that Ford is quite a talker.   
He talks to himself.  
He talks to us.  
He talks to the babies at daycare.  
And sometimes he likes to start talking at 3:00 a.m.
Just because.  
The boy likes to talk! And we love it.
