2 Months Late but its a......


Maverick Ryan McKiernan was born December 29, 2011 weighing in at 6lbs. 110z. Our smallest baby! I swore he was going to be the biggest! Maverick is the sweetest boy and is definitely a cuddle bug. He hasnt quite caught on to the whole sleep thing yet...something I am not used to. My other babies were sleepers! He is starting to smile and coo. I love when they start to find their voice and "talk" to you. Riley, Trevor & Ireland are just as in love with their little brother as Mommy and Daddy are. Maverick has completed our family and we are so grateful for a healthy perfect baby! 2 boys and 2 girls....what more could we ask for?!?!?

Haven't been on in a while....we're all still here and doing well!

Riley started 1st grade & Trevor started Kindergarten this year...can NOT believe it still. They are loving it and doing so well. They meet under a big tree at school at lunchtime and then play together during that recess, so sweet!!

Ireland started preschool this year and is absolutely loving that, she would go all 5 days if she could. She loves showing us her art and what she did that day :)

I am now 6 months pregnant with this little bebe! Its seems to be flying by and the end of Decemeber will be here before we know it and I cant wait to find out whether its a little girl or little boy. Dreaming about holding him or her for the first time. awwww! Having a hard time with this one figuring out names...I think because its our last one I just want the perfect name for us and its seeming to be very difficult!

Zach is still working his butt off at the office, putting in a lot of hours and is hoping to finish all his real estate classes online and take his test by the 1st of the year! Woohoo! I know he can do it.

Well thats about it! I am so excited for Fall to be here, tomorrow actually, and for the cooler weather, pumpkins, Halloween, pumpkin recipes, sweatshirts, and fires!

RIP Grandma!

Zach's grandma Shirley passed away yesterday. It was so hard but we knew it was coming in the next few days. She had a couple illnesses affecting her already and then she suffered a stroke and was taken to the hospital. We went everyday and visited her. The kids each made her a card and gave it to her 2 days before she passed. I was one of the last people in the hospital, along with Bob & Linda. We went on Sunday evening to see her. She was pretty unconscious and her breathing was very labored and was about 6 secs in between each breath. I brought her fresh flowers and the 3 of us sat with her for a few hours. I made sure when we left that I rubbed her arm and leg and told her "Love you Grandma, sleep good." We got the dreaded call the next morning that she had passed around 7am. Zach and I went to the hospital that morning and said our goodbyes. That was the toughest part. She looked much more at peace though. Her services are this Saturday and she will be cremated and buried next to her husband Art. Shirley was so sweet and loved our 3 kiddos. We loved having her over to our house at Halloween and 4th of July and we always saw her on Xmas Eve too. We love you Grandma and are so glad that you are in a better place, in no pain and with your hubby!!

Prayers Needed...

This family has lost their bautiful little girl and prayers are definitely needed. I cant imagine even close to what there going through. It makes me want to just sit and cuddle with all my babies forever!

February Bdays!

February 1st was my mother in law Linda's birthday! We went out to eat at Cattlemans because she, like me, loves her steak & potatoes! We had a really nice dinner and the kids each made her cards and we got her a Border's gift card because her favorite pastime is reading!

And today is my father in law Bob's birthday. We are headed out to Island's this evening for burgers, fries & shakes, his fav! We got him a mixed cd with some of his fav. music on it to enjoy and the kids of course made him some bday cards!

Happy Birthday to 2 of our most favorite people!!!
