Baby Rapunzel

Since Tangled is one of our all-time favorite family movies, we thought it would be fun for baby Stella to dress up as Rapunzel for Trick-or-Trunk. She was just as darling as she could be!

The Red-Headed R2-D2

Here's our little, red-headed R2-D2 getting ready for today's Trunk-or-Treat extravaganza held at the Orrville Christian Church.

R2-D2 Porter

Daddy even bought the full Star Wars series earlier this week so Porter could "fully connect" with his astro droid character. Of course, this was totally for Porter's benefit and had nothing to do with Brian wanting this collection for himself for the last several years now!

Feeling at Home

It's hard to believe that we've been living in our home for over a month now. Although our to-do list is still lengthy, we're feeling more and more at home each day. We really do love this house!

The Traveling Piano

When I was a young girl living in Portage Lakes, this piano sat in my bedroom. From there, it moved with my family to Munroe Falls where it has been residing for almost 20 years. Now, it has moved to our forever home in Orrville where it is loved on daily by my two little rascals. I am so happy that this piano was able to be passed on to our next generation, and it brings me delight to see it be once again used and enjoyed.

Made for the Outdoors

This boy was made to be outdoors! He just loves to ride his bike up and down the driveway, dig in the dirt, climb trees, find worms, step on stink bugs, and even pick up sticks. We are so happy to now have a yard that is free from traffic and safe for our kids to play in and enjoy!

Pesky Bushes

Those pesky bushes can't stop Stella from getting where she wants to go!

Today was Grandparents Day at Porter's Preschool, and his Grandpa came all the way down from Akron to read him a few stories. Porter was over the moon!
