Leaves Part 1

A couple of weeks ago, Jayna couldn't resist the fallen leaves in our front yard. She didn't even want to take time to get the rake from the back garage. She decided the snow shovel would do just fine. Take a look at her efforts...
She worked hard at shoveling them into a pile.

She's having a ball!

Now that there's a pile it's time to run...

and jump right in!

Autumn thinks her sister is brillant and can really put on a good show.

Fun With a Box

It's always amazing how kids like to play with the box more than the toys. Tucker and Autumn loved crawling in and out. It was so cute.
Jayna made a bed in the box. Autumn would crawl in it too and try to snuggle up with her sister. They are so sweet together.

Family at the Birthday Party

We love our family so very much! They have been a HUGE part of this past year, and we enjoyed celebrating with them.

Grandpa Shutes reading with Autumn

Autumn uses Uncle Justin as a stablizer, while Grandma Hess gets her ball for her.

Autumn and her cousin/buddy Tucker enjoy some time with this fun toy.

Our sweet niece Carly wonders what is going on.

Uncle Sep helps Auti with her toy, while Tucker supervises.

Happy 1st Birthday Autumn Faith!

We praise God for this past year and all He has done for our family! What a blessing to be celebrating this incredible year full of miracles! This little spitfire of a girl has something in store for her to further God's kingdom. It is so fun watching her grow and seeing who God is making her to be. I love His plans! They are always so perfect! We had a nice quaint party for her 1st birthday. She really enjoyed herself. We hope you enjoy a few of the pictures.
The birthday girl really enjoyed her balloons!

She had no problem opening the gifts! She knows how to get to the good stuff!

'Hmmm, what is this in front of me...'

'Oh, it's sooo yummy!'

'I just can't let any go to waste. I better lick this plate clean. I probably won't get this again for a long time.'

I Tried, Be Patient

I am sorry, I tried to post a blog about Autumn's birthday, but the pictures wouldn't load. I will keep trying. I have many blogs to share, so hang in there. We'll have some new postings very soon. Thanks for your patience.

Nature Girl

Autumn is our little nature girl. She loves animals, especially the deer in our backyard. Here's a video of her watching the deer and talking to them. This happens everytime she sees them in the backyard. It is really cute. We tried talking Jayna into being in the video because she enjoys the deer too, but she had something better to do in her room.
