Could it be...


Yes.... indeed.... a new post.....

It has been SO long since I've posted.... summer came, summer went, school started, and now fall is here.
I had great intentions of posting all summer about the fun things we were doing (and we did a lot) but the littles (not so little anymore) kept me hopping all summer.

Our summer fun included~
Cirque Du Soleil show... followed by days of Lily and Ty trying to duplicate the acrobats at home...
Movies (on days that we needed a break from the heat)
Lily's 6th anniversary (can't believe it has been 6 years)
Kelleys Island
Long bike rides
4th of July parade (that we were in)
Fireworks
Swimming lessons and LOTS of swimming (because it was so HOT this year)
Tball
Family reunion
Karate (both moved up a belt this summer... Ty now on purple and Lily on yellow)
A week in Seattle
Several activities that included butterflies

Then before we knew it school started......

AND.....

Even though the littles are in school all day I still haven't made it back here to post on the blog.....until now....

Tulips

The littles love planting bulbs, seeds, and flowers...... SO... last fall we planted some double bloom tulip bulbs.   The blooms were the size of a salad plate.   I had no idea how beautiful they would be....

Needless to say.... we will be planting more this fall...we all LOVED them.....








 










One of my favorite photos... Miss Lily holding the beautiful tulips.....

Ty's 4th Anniversary

Last month we celebrated Ty's 4th Anniversary....
SOOOO....
The Littles and I decided to look back at pictures of when Ty came home and even before that. While doing so....I came across something that I received while we were waiting.....
This is from a mom that was in Xi'an, visiting the orphanage with her new daughter...we were still waiting to receive travel approval from China.

Now... can I describe your little man a bit.... he is irresistible!!! He "fought" for my full attention while I was there... he climbed, made noise, laughed, blinked his eyes, smiled... and finally climbed out of the crib! He is a teeny tiny little thing and I could just love on him all day!!! And cute... oh my goodness... he is cute and what is so funny... he KNOWS it!!!! He uses that cute little "head tilt" and finger in his mouth with a grin...

When I read this (now 4 years later) it still describes Ty.
He still does the "head tilt" and oh my goodness he is cute and I think he does know it.... although he would probably say handsome.

Oh how we love Ty Olsen....
He blesses our lives every day!!!


To celebrate his anniversary we made a trip to Zap Zone.....
All of Ty's favorite things... bowling, mini golf, video games, and fun...
The only thing missing was Blackjack and Poker.....(his other favorites)....








He really takes it seriously.... seeing just where he needs to hit the ball...


Lily did it so Ty naturally needed to do it...





Mini go-carts

One of the prizes he chose (after collecting many tickets).....
