Professional Pictures!

 I wanted to share some pictures that my good friend, Theresa's sister took of my family.  We went to Independence Grove in Libertyville on a beautiful August evening.  I think they just turned out beautiful!

It Has Been Some Time!

  Well, I'm sorry friends for the big delay in my blog posts.  I have so much to share and catch up on. 
  The Chevrier's have changed a lot in the past few months.  We found out on my Birthday that we are expecting our 4th!  Wow, that is still a shock for me to say!  We have also sold our house and have moved in with my parents.  We were waiting on a short sale to be approved and it took 4 months for us to hear back from the bank.  The bank told us that they wanted 10,000 more than what we offered.  I'm still baffled that they made us wait that long to tell us to pay more.  So we decided to back out and we found a house we just love and we are waiting to close hopefully by November 8th. 
  We find out the gender of baby Chevrier November 6th!  I'm really not sure whether it is a girl or a boy.  I'm guessing boy as of right now.  I feel huge at 18 weeks.  With Anderson I was quite massive and with Ellie I felt smaller.  Time will tell.  I will be definitely happy either way!
  I'm bummed I don't have pictures to share.  My computer was packed away and I don't have a way to download my pictures. 
  The kids are well.  Avielle and Anderson are doing great in school.  They both turned six and seem so old to me!  Ellie is having a harder time adjusting to school.  I think seperation is the hardest part for her.  She always seems happy when I drop her off at school. 
  That is it for now.  I hope to get back to blogging and capturing memories of our lives. 
  One of my biggest fans, Kelli McMahon, has been bugging me about another post!  HA!

T-Ball 2012

This year Anderson started T-ball!  His practices are every Tuesday and Thursday evening and games every Saturday for almost the whole summer. 
He has been doing really well and has been enjoying it! 

Little Molly (Jacob's sister) walking around.
Anderson got to do T-Ball with his buddy Jacob. 
Here my mom came to the game. 
These two have been enjoying watching their brother and playing on the playground at practices.

Park View Bike Parade!

We had our first Park View subdivision bike parade this year.  Of coarse it was super hot that evening that we planned to do it.  We were all dripping in sweat as we decorate our bikes at 6:30 at night.   

The parents and kids were all such troopers to brave the heat!
Bella has her bike ready
What an adorable crew!!!!
Here are the babies following along!
They all rode their bikes and we ended the bike parade at Mr. Mark's house where he had a water slide up that we could all cool down in!  Thank you Mark!
Zach, Jacob, and Anderson
Brynn and Ellie
Daniella and Avielle
Daniella and her mommy!
Anderson and Ben
The kids had fun playing in the water and slide and then things got interesting with the squirt guns.  The kids started coming after the adults with the squirt guns!  My Chevy was absolutely soaked and I got a little wet from a misfire!
We are moving by the end of August and the hardest part about the move is that we really love our neighborhood.  The neighborhood is all about family and the kids are all around the same age.  There is always someone to play with and parents to sit out and talk to.  Mark and Ellen own a Bouncy house, so we love going over to their house to bounce on the latest equipement.  Thankfully we are moving 5 minutes away.

4th of July

I absolutely love 4th of July!  I love all the patriotic themes and dresses in red, white, and blue.  I also love summer time.  This year in Illinois it has been SUPER HOT!  It has been swimming weather everyday.  If you are not swimming you need to be inside or you will melt.  On the 4th this year it was in the high 90's. 
  A tradition that we have done for the last 4 years is to go to the Round Lake parade.  This year we went with the Troiano's (my sister's fam) and the Domier's.  The cousins had matching dresses.  :)
My sister lives right by where the parade starts.  Here we are getting bags for all the candy.
Fortunately the Domier's found a place in the shade and the heat was bearable.
Brynn and Ellie

Anderson showing some love to Brooke!
Then it was time to get up front for all the candy. 
The Round Lake parade is super loud with all the sirens. 
Brynn and Brooke getting their ears plugged.
This girl couldn't wait for the candy!  After the parade we went to my sister's house and cooled down.  We went home and got our food ready to bring to my parent's house for some swimming time. 
When we got there I was ready to jump in that pool!
Here are the girl cousins!
Here are some more girl cousins!
Kaeden running around! 
Anderson!  Unfortunately, we didn't get a boy cousin picture!
We couldn't light off fireworks this year.  We are in an extreme drought and we didn't want to start a fire. The kids all had a blast together!
