Baby Number 5

It's a boy!!  Grant arrived on September  24, 2012 at 3:53am.  He weighed 6 lbs - 6 ozs, and was 19 inches long.  It was a smooth delivery overall and we are so happy to have him here and healthy.  He is surprisingly really blonde with cute little blue eyes, which I guess is now more of a normal for us.
 I can hardly believe we now have 5 kids, but here is our adorable bunch and they absolutely love having a new baby brother.  Alec and Ty are so pleased to say he looks like them.
He is so sweet and easy to love!!
We were so spoiled this time to have both of our parents come and stay with us to help with the baby.  We loved every minute of it, and the kids loved the attention.  It was hard to say good-bye knowing I would be on our own and very our numbered.  Here are Luke's parents with our group.
Here are my parents with the our crazies.

First Day of School

The kids started school the end of August and they were extremely excited.  Ben is our big 3rd grader and Alec finally gets to go all day like Ben and eat school lunch as a 1st grader.
Ty started Preschool the middle of September and absolutely loves it.  He goes MWF mornings and comes home teaching Violet her letters.  Violet seems to not mind being home with out the boys, but is ready for him when he comes home.

Paramount Eye Care--Open

 Here is Luke's beautiful new office for his new practice.  It has been quite the adventure this past year putting his business together, but we are so happy with how things have turned out thus far.  We opened our doors on July 18th thanks to many hands who made it possible.  Here is the link to his website if you want to check it out.  Paramount Eye Care.
Here is our little family at the ribbon cutting ceremony.  The man in the green is our awesome builder Rod from Alturas Construction who did an amazing job.  I am going to blame my poor blogging (at least this year) to starting a business.  I knew it would be time consuming and difficult to start a new practice from scratch, but really I had no idea how involved I would be.  A year to remember.
