Singing Christmas Tree 2015

We had such a fun week being a part of the Molalla High School Singing Christmas Tree.  Nicole and Brooke sang a beautiful duet!  Love those girls!!!

The Primary kids were asked to sing again which means costumes and craziness but lots of fun memories!!!

Family Picures 2015

This year for family pictures we tried something different...we set up the tripod and set the timer on the camera and completely did our own.  It was way easier!!! But was not without the normal family picture craziness!  We just didn't have someone else there to witness it!  Wardrobe changes at the last minute with a few tears shed (Kurt!) and losing the sunlight because of it! grrrrrr.  But all turned out well and we got them done!  I love my family!:)

Kurt and Elder Kaiser...brothers forever.

I remember when...

I've been working on our family photo book for 2008 and it's bringing back lots of sweet memories.  A crazy time for sure but in many ways much simpler.

I remember how excited all the kids were when Kurt came home from the hospital. 
I remember when Lauren didn't want bangs any more and slicked them back with water.
I remember when Nathan use to sleep with his squirmy worm every night.
I remember doing summer home school and Derek would wear his Boba Fett costume everyday...and gloves.
Except on the days he was going into the office.
I remember Kurt's first Halloween when I dressed him up as Yoda.
Such a little master.
I remember when Nicole got contacts and how beautiful her eyes looked!

Kurt still makes this face quite often.
I remember my first mother's day with all my babies.
