It's about time

We caught you all up on the going ons in the Pickard household.
Carson is now 7 months and so much fun. He really wants to chase his sisters, but still doesn't have the hang of crawling.
Grace, is well, sweet Gracie girl. She is into taking care of her baby, Beth, and trying to do everything Caite does. And, she is going through a little bit of a curious stage. Lets just say that cutting her pants is one of the many things she has experimented on.
And Caite. She is more of a sponge every day and simply cannot learn enough. She is a great little helper, so much so she has decided that I need help organizing. I opened the fridge the other day to find everything rearranged because she thought I needed more room. For those of you who know how much I like things neat and orderly, you can understand my need for extra patience. It is really scary when you see so much of yourself in your kids, good and bad.

Please enjoy the many new posts following as they will give you a "picture" into some of our latest happenings.

It's Christmas time

Last Wednesday we went with our good friends the Myers to get our christmas tree. We did it the good old fashioned way...

at Costco!

Carson even had fun

Decorating the tree

My favorite memory was Grace's response the morning after we got our tree. The girls had gone to bed when we got home so they never saw the tree up that night. When Grace got up the next morning she walked into the living room and exclaimed "Our christmas tree is in our house!" I keep forgetting that she doesn't remember much from last year, so it is all new to her. She gets so excited and is very expressive about every thing. Every time we see lights she says "See those lights guys, they're nice ones."


We spent the day at Uncle Rob and Aunt Adri's house along with the rest of Tim's family and the rest of Adri's family.
It was really fun for the girls to have other kids to play with (these are Adri's nephews)
The brothers had some quality bonding time!
And Caitlin found a new hiding spot

The next day we spent the day at my parents. I thought this was a really sweet picture of my dad playing with Carson.

Our Sweet Boy

All smiles

Carson is officially on the move now, just backwards!
I love those sweet baby blues!

Caite turns 4

Caite got to celebrate her birthday twice, she had a family birthday and one with friends.

Trying on some of her new gifts
She had a polk-a-dot party and the guests had to "dot" themselves when they came in.

Some fun pictures...

in some fun attire.

The littlest pirate
(this is not on halloween, I just keep forgetting to post it)

I think Carson is done, what do you think?
Sleeping Beauty, dressing up and getting free candy is a lot of work!
