First Haircut

My little baby turned.....
...into a little Man!!!

Impossible to get a decent picture of these three....entertaining though.

Little Chloe got Clipped

She's loving as you can see. She was started to look like a homeless dog though so it had to be done. Thanks Becca!!

Both boys wore this sweater that now has been handed down to Chloe.

Gavin's 1st Birthday

Ouch don't touch the candle!
Playing with it...not sure yet what to do.
Oh yeah this is good!
Oh so good!!

Present time. Axel and Addy were very helpful. SO helpful that Gavin really never got a chance to open any of his own presents.
Checking out his presents.
I think Axel thought it was his birthday...he was more excited then Gavin!

Our New Home

Here are some before and after pictures of the progress so far.
Below is the kitchen. Nothing really been done yet except for some major cleaning and removal of wall paper. Will post after pictures when something gets done.

My parents had the kids so Tiff and I gutted the basement. We took out the dry wall, paneling insulation and ceiling tiles. There is still some work to do but it's getting better.

After (above)
