The other day we went to Great Clips and got 4 of our family members haircuts. The hair dressers couldn't believe how many different hair colors we had in one family. It was funny to see all the air swept together: red, blonde, and black.
Avi probably got 3 inches off. It has helped with her hair not being so tangled in the morning.
Anderson got a little buzz around the sides.
Ellie's hair is just crazy! She got a trim on the ends to hopefully make it thicker.
My son Anderson has a very creative mind, which gets him into trouble sometimes. A few weeks ago Chevy's parents were in town and Anderson went upstairs. He came downstairs with Kleenex boxes on his hands and feet. He told us all that he was a robot.
It took me a second to figure out where he might have gotten the Kleenex boxes. Then I remembered that in the upstairs closet I had 4 boxes of Kleenexes. He decided to empty them all out and put some in the toilet and some in the garbage.
Here is a picture of all the Kleenexes. At least he tried to clean-up! We all did laugh, because this is something that Anderson would do!
Now I have a pile of Kleenex in my bathroom. Someday we will use it all!
Here is a boat that Anderson made all by himself with tape and paper. Tape is his absolute favorite thing in the whole world! Anderson asked for tape for Christmas.
I thought this boat was really cool. Again we didn't help him at all, but he pictured it in his mind and then created it! Do you see the propeller?
My husband, Ryan, who is my true love. He is my helper, encourager, provider, and soul mate. We met in college and have been married for 11 years. He works as a financial recruiter and during tax time he works as a CPA. We were married young and have really grown up together. We love spending time together and chasing after our three little ones. He is a finacial recruiter by day and a tax preparer by night. He truly is a loving father to our three and finds great joy in being with his family. He is a lover of the Red Wings, anything sports, a spiritual leader to the family, and a servant to others.
our 1st miracle child and our oldest by 5 days. Her name means, "The Lord our God is gracious." Her middle name is named after her mommy and grammie. My beautiful Avi is our fun loving, giggling, strongwill, determined 1st daughter. She is my sunshine and cuddler, who loves my undivided attention and loves routine. She is mommy's helper and loves to help me cook, clean, and work in the yard. She loves being a big sister to her little sister and spends most days playing with her babies and taking care of them. She is such a nurturer to her family and to her friends, especially to the younger ones. Avi is extremely smart and brings me joy every day with her smile! I thank God everyday for her and I'm amazed at what a miracle she is and that I get to be her mommy.
Our 2nd miracle child that we tried to get pregnant with for a few years. He is our only and oldest boy . He is 5 days younger than his sister. Anderson's name comes from my maiden name and his middle name is named after is Daddy, Nana, and Great Grandpa. Just like his hair is full of color, his personality is full of color. He is an extremely sweet and sensitive boy who really likes to put on the charm with the ladies. He is full of adventure and has a big imagination. Anderson is all boy and loves sports and superheros. In many ways he is like his daddy who he really looks up to. He has a really good disposition and is also extremely smart, especially when it comes to talking. He truly loves life and a good party!
Our third miracle is our little 3 year old Ellie. Her middle name is after her Grammie. She was our wonderful surprise born when our "God Twins" were 19 months. We had 3 children in 19 months! God has a sense of humor! When Ellie was born she had a heart issue that the doctors had a hard time diagnosing. After 10 days at Children's Memorial she was sent home on oxygen. When she was born the doctor's told us that she would need open heart surgery several times in her first year. The Lord healed her heart and she has never needed any open heart surgeries. The doctors are amazed at the healing of her heart. Praise God! Meeting Ellie you would never know that she had a heart issue. She is our spunky little Redhead that loves to have fun and wrestle. I am convinced that she thinks life is a musical. She sings and performs all day to her family! She is such a joy and I couldn't imagine life without her!
Somer Joann (Mom)
Yes, I was named after the season, Summer. Almost everyone asks, "Were you born in the summer?" "Yes, I was." I just entered my 30's. I am blessed with a great upbringing. I have three sister and my parent's live close by. I am a former 2nd grade teacher. I taught for 5 years at a Christian school and love working with kids and being creative. I now stay home with my kids, but I am able to teach one day a week and I also teach piano once a week. I love that I'm able to stay home with the kids, but must admit it can be challenging some days. We like to stay busy with preschool for my older two in the afternoons and MOPS. One of my hobbies is running. I love the Lord with all my heart and truly try to follow His ways. Though I am human and fail in many ways. My desire is to be a woman who loves the Lord, a supportive wife, and a loving mother.
