Jordan’s 5th Birthday

March 20, 2013


On March 14, 2013, Jordan turned 5.  But the party started early and lasted for about 2 weeks… The celebration began on March 2: Jordan got her ears pierced!  She had asked for our whole family to be at the mall with her, and afterwards we all celebrated with cookies from the bakery. On March 13, […]

Merry Christmas!

March 18, 2012


Christmas 2011 was special.  It was the 1st ever Christmas for both Karter & Spencer, and it was the first Christmas where Jordan compiled her list for Santa ALL by herself.  For Jared and I, this was our first Christmas with our completed family in what we thought would be our ‘forever’ home – talk about a […]

Rockstar Jacket

December 11, 2011


For the second time this week, Jordan told me tonight that she is getting a rockstar jacket for Christmas from Santa!  NO!!!  Nick JR is on my list, and I don’t mean Christmas list!  For those of you who are lucky enough not to know it, they have a show called “The Fresh Beat Band”.  […]
