Christmas pictures

Here is the proof of how challenging it is to get a decent holiday picture of 3 kids! Above we all look pretty good, until you realize Garrison ducked his head behind Santa's. Then below it was just insanity to think we could add a dog in and get a good shot.

Much better with 2 children and a snowman that can't move.

I think Garrison looks slightly like a lumberjack here.

Gabe Gustin, big game hunter.

Gracie and mom in our matching Purdy Panther shirts.

Not walking yet, but crawling and climbing all over the place.

This is Gabe's brown, fury alarm clock each morning. Gabe and Garrison are finally sleeping in the same bedroom and it is going very well. Mark and I are so happy to have our bedroom back to ourselves. No more creeping around trying not to wake the baby!

Gracie and Mariah all glammed up.

These are from right before Gabe's Preschool concert. He insisted on wearing the tie instead of the sweater I picked out. He was so excited about it and was a hoot to watch. His friend Cade (in the picture) didn't enjoy it so much, he cried through the whole thing!

Halloween Fun

Here is our little Rock Star and James the Train! Despite the freezing weather and 30mph winds, the Gustin and Williams children had fun trick or treating. Gabe, who is afraid of everything these days, did not run into any really scary costumes, thank heavens or he may have been traumatized for life. Garrison just calmly took everything in and seemed to enjoy it.

Who needs Brett Farve when we have Garrison!

Gabe's first day of preschool. He is Mr. GQ.

Garrison enjoying Grandpa Gustin.

Check out the pumpkin we grew! Just kidding, we are at the pumpkin patch.

Gracie is not so sure about those goats.

First day of school

Here are some pictures from Gracie's first day of school. She seemed to have enjoyed it. All she told us was that it was good and they played. Hopefully someday she will give us more details! It was a hectic week, but I think we are all getting into the flow of the full time work thing. It really stinks when Mark is out of town, but we survive.

Gabe's birthday

What a crazy week it has been! I went back to work full time and Mark was out of town two nights. The kids and I were able to make it out of the house each day and I wasn't even late for work. We celebrated Gabey's birthday Sunday with the William's family. Gabe wanted a cars cake and was VERY happy with the trains and train tracks he got! We have one more day to rest, then school starts Tuesday for me, Wednesday for Gracie.
Dieter and Garrison wear the same size and can share clothes now. In case you are wondering, Mark dressed the dog, not me!

A few fun pictures.
Gracie is dressing up as Queen Ester.

Gabe did not like what we were having for dinner this night!

This was the day Garrison found his toes!!

Summer Fun

Gracie and Gabe have spent most of this month in the water- at the pool, in the lake or in our small backyard pool. They both had swimming lessons. Gracie is actually swimming! Garrison has spent a lot of time watching them swim. Luckily he is pretty easy going. We have also been working on teaching Gracie to ride her bike. That isn't going as quickly as we'd like!
