Merry Christmas!

What a fun Christmas we had.  It was very low key which was nice.  Rogue was really into Christmas this year.  She still isn't a fan of Santa though.  We started of the season with Christmas morning with just us as a family opening gifts.  Then that evening going to Grandpa and Grandma Koeman's.  The girls of course were extremely spoiled.  The Kraker's Christmas was on January 1 this year.  What a good way to bring in the New Year!  Again, the girls were completely spoiled.  I think I'll have to go through all of their toys now just to find room for the new ones!

She's 3!

Happy birthday to my oldest!  Can't believe its been three whole years already.  Your personality has really come out this year and man is it a strong one!  Although the year hasn't been the easiest, its also been one of the most fun.  You love anything to do with animals.  Your "babies" in fact are all animals.  Hardly ever do you play with an actual baby doll.  You choose a frong themed party this year.  Mainly because on the last camping trip we took for the season, you did nothing but hunt for frogs.
 We love you so much Rogue McKenzie, and can't wait to see what your next year has to bring!

Christmas Tree

We always get our tree the day after Thanksgiving, I just can';t wait any longer than that.  As always, we headed out to the big town of Borculo were we always get our tree.  Rogue was excited at first and wanted to take home the first one we saw.  When it came time for a picture by the tree she wasn't having it.  I just love the smell of a real tree!

4 month Well Child Visit

Today was Blair's 4 month well child visit.  All is well her.  We have been blessed with a very happy baby.  Although, she could sleep more.  We are still getting up with her about every 2-3 hours.  Makes for a tired mama.

Her stats for today were 13lbs 5oz in the 25th percentile and 25 inches putting her in the 75th percentile.

Happy Halloween

You'll have to excuse my lack of pictures for this post.  Our camera has taken up the good habit of draining the battery, so often the batteries in my camera are dead when I go to take a picture.  Thus, no pictures of the actual trick or treating.

Every year our friends, the Dykstras, put on an awesome Halloween party for the kids.  We go on a hayride to a neat little nook on their property and have some munchies.  This year we had a pinata and even a corn maze (even though it was sorgum).  Fun was had by all.  Can't wait until next year!

2 month well child visit

Today we had Blair's 2 month well child visit and the first dreaded shots.  I'm happy to report that all is still well with our little peanut, and a little peanut she is.  She weighed a whopping 10lbs 6oz!  When I saw the weight for the first time I had to ask the nurse to try again!  That only put Blair in the 25th percentile for her weight.  Rogue had always been around the 75th percentile and for some reason I had just assumed Blair would be the same.  Blair was 22.75 inches and that put her in the 50-75th percentile so that wasn't a shock to her mama.  She handled the shots alright and of course Rogue and I felt terrible for her.  Rogue says she doesn't want any shots from the doctor.

Michigan's Adventure

Gentex has their annual Summer Picnic for their employees every year at Michigan's Adventure.  We brought the girls thinking that she would have a riot.  I however, was very skeptical.  Bryan insisted that she could have a good time.  I will gladly admit that I was very wrong.  This girl LOVED the rides.  She would say that they tickled her tummy.  There wasn't a ride in that park that she was allowed to go on that she didn't ride.
