We finally got Marlee out in the snow. She wasn't too sure about the sled but loved making a snowman and throwing snowballs. I think she also just loved being out of the house!

I caught Marlee starting to give the snowman a kiss

More kisses

Max and Naomi now had to kiss the snowman

Gotta love these three

Max fixing the snowman

All bundled up. This photo makes me think of the movie a Christmas Story.

She says "Whoa"


Big brother being good to Marlee

This was a fun day to remember.

more of marlee's party

Marlee is so into opening her gifts now.

The big kids all love to help but Marlee didn't want their help. She does love them being around her though.

Great Grandma DeBoer lovin on Levi

Great expression and joy these little ones bring out in Grandpa D.

Not sure what she is doing here but I love this photo of her.

snow day

We had a snow day Wednesday. It was a good thing. I really enjoy having the kids home. It was good because we made valentine bookmarks for the kids in their classes, attempted to shovel the driveway(which our kind neighbor finished with his snow blower), played with friends in the snow, and went to the library. We ended the evening with reading the new books and a brownie treat. Love these lazy but busy days.

new baby bed

My dad made the crib for Marlee. Mom put together all the bedding. She loves to tuck her babies in. She wishes she could sleep in there...

Marlee had to dress up in this tutu after we took off her cake covered pants:)

What a great party we had for Marlee. She is obsessed with babies so I made her a baby cake. It was love at first sight for her. I loved watching her stick her little fingers in the cake and lick it with a big smile on her face. She loves the cake but really loves ice cream.
What a joy in our lives.
Sweet smiles.
Screaming funny at the top of her lungs for attention.
Rocking your baby and giving her a bottle.
Saying "Hi" and smiling.
Anything babies-pictures, books, Michael Jackson dancing babies youtube video.
Nonstop eating.
Still so happy-from the day you were born.
I love you sweet baby.

We finally made it to Grandma O's house to visit with Levi and Marlee. Noah and I had a dentist appointment so Grandpa met us there to help with the little ones. It was nice to spend time with her. Great Grandma really enjoyed Levi and Marlee made herself at home playing with toys that she keeps in the toy closet when the kids come over. It was Marlee's birthday and Grandpa came with a little tea set gift that Grandma had wrapped in Dora paper. Lots of smiles this day.


Marlee appeared next to daddy laying her baby on the table. Daddy didn't know what she was doing until he realized she had a wipe in her hand and was wiping her baby like we do with her and Levi. She was saying "BLAH" as she was wiping. Oh if she only knew the messes I have to clean up:) Gotta love how she gets it!


Marlee is obsessed with my sewing pins. She loves to put them in the pin cushion and was tryng to put them in the fabric like Grandma was doing. She is so intense when she is busy with something she likes. I tried at first to not let her play with them but after one little poke she was aware of what pins do. Sometimes it is more work to have her involved but I love the fact that she enjoys doing what I am doing.
