Thomas James Whipple
Born 7/13/11 6:43 p.m
7 lbs 7 oz 20 in.

We love our newest addtion! A few things about him are:
1: He is named after my dad who passed away from cancer when I was 6.
2: He arrived 3 1/2 weeks early. Mom is glad becauce if he would have gone full term there would have been a good chance I would have delieved atleast a 9 lb baby.
3: He was born after only being at the hospital for 11 minuets!! Scary!
4: He is such a good baby and we can't imagine our lives without him!

Let's Pretend....

Let's pretend that it hasn't been almost a year since I have updated. Here is a pic from each past month included in one of our new additions!!

Homemade Halloween

We has a great Halloween this year. Addie was Minnie Mouse and loved it. I had so much fun this year making our home all festive, making Addie's costume, making a special Sunday outfit, lots of sugar cookies, carving pumpkins, and great memories.

Addie's Halloween jumper

Our very cute Minnie Mouse

Our Halloween dinner. A jack-o-lantern pizza that was not homemade, but we did bake it at home. It was very yummy and might be a new tradition.

Addie's First Race!!

The Swiss Days 10K is my favorite run of the year. This year my brother-in-law and sister-in-law also ran it. It was a blast. Perfect weather, great company and my best 10k time ever. That was great but the best part was watching and cheering on Addie in her FIRST race!!! She ran in the 0-2 year old group and did great. I was one proud momma!! Start'n em young!!
