So early.

Happy Easter! These 3 were up before 6am so that they could share gifts and hunt for eggs. We were less than thrilled but it made us get to 8am mass on time. :)

One of my lent goals was to blog every day. I have officially posted a post a day. Now if only I can keep it up and keep the memories coming! :)

Easterly brother love

Ryan took the kids to Five Below and let them buy a couple things for one person. (Each sibling picked one). Chase got Blake and wrote him this little note. He hung it on his bed and taped a dollar to the back too. It was just so thoughtful and sweet! They all did a nice job shopping for each other and the best part of Easter was giving their gifts to their "secret bunny". It was special to see them all so happy to be on the giving end!

We celebrated Ryan a day early with the Thommes crew. He was made this lovely birthday cake out of Little Debbie snacks... his childhood favorites!

Foley Easter

Easter at Dad and Janet's was great fun! We celebrated Ryan and Carissa too. There were games and egg hunts and lots of delicious food. We may have a large group, but it's always full of laughs and love.

Cousin fun for Brayden

On Brayden's birthday, all the cousins met up at the park to celebrate and eat some cupcakes. This group typically plays so well together and are always SO excited to see each other. It makes my heart happy!

Car wash from the outside

Ryan doesn't like car washes so he observed from the outside. Kind of creepy looking?

Big savings purchase

Reese worked hard to save her money. She finally had enough to purchase her very own ipod touch. She is very excited. Let's hope she learns some good responsibility with this as she earned it herself!

Enchanted fun Godsons date

Spring break fun included our annual birthday date with Noah and Brayden. They had so much fun at Enchanted castle. It was nice and empty and the kids had so much fun playing for hours!

Little Swimmers

The kids have been taking swim lessons. Chase and Reese are getting pretty good and Blake is slowly making progress.  A couple months until summer... let's see if we can have three good swimmers by then!

Ninja Warriors

Noah and Nate had the coolest birthday party at a Ninja Warrior gym. The guy teaching the class was even on the show! It was so cool!

These three came down for breakfast all matching. Chase was still half asleep but it was too cute to not get a picture.

Rise and Grind

It's been about 6 months now that I have followed Ryan's lead and started taking CrossFit classes. Jen and I meet at the 5:30am class with this fun group of happy and kind people! Who doesn't love a matching shirt?

9 going on 15

Little Reese is rocking her fancy earrings! She is not little though, she is growing up way too fast. She is testing the waters with always wanting to know why, but it's just part of growing up! She's still our kind hearted little girl.

New Years Eve 2014

Feels like a long time ago! We spent New Years Eve at the Thommes house playing silly games made up by Ryan. It was some serious crazy fun!

We also took a trip to the city last year to see Newsies! It was great! We don't get downtown often, but this was a fun time!

Boys and Spring

Spring is quickly approaching. Today, the weather was amazing! The kids were in a good mood which lead to happy parents and a fun evening. After school we took some time at the park. The boys walked home together and chatted the entire way. Chase even used his school cash he earned to buy Blake a little lion and a whoopee cushion. How precious!?
