Busy Family of Four

Man, this summer flew by and now we are headed full speed into fall.  Halloween decorations are out everywhere and we have not even adjusted to the kids being in school.  We have been living in Dallas for the summer with Nana and Pa (thank you millions) until our new house is available for us to move in.  We should be able to move in this coming weekend and we could not be more excited.  We will be moving back over by TCU in the Tanglewood neighborhood!  We cannot wait to be close to friends again!  Here are some fun pictures of the kids over the past few months.

Has it really been 5 months since our last blog??? do I catch this blog up?  It has been a very busy couple of months.  My crazy job and time consuming school work have prevented me from keeping up with much of anything.  Well, I am taking a short break from school so I figured I better catch up the blog while I have the chance.  Summary of what we have been busy doing goes something like this...lots of playing, growing bigger, Colbie is into everything, Maddon starting soccer, trip to Great Wolf Lodge, mommy hospitalized with meningitis, trip to Boston, slip and slides, first slumber party, Easter egg hunts, Maddon's 4th birthday party, and a bit of puddle jumping!

Looking back on Christmas 2010...we are truly blessed!

We enjoyed so many fun activities this Christmas season with the kids.  We saw ALL of our family...which was wonderful.  We had a few days with all of the 7 cousins playing together at Nana and Pa's house.  Spending quality time with our families is what was most important to us.  We love you all!!!

Colbie is all set to see an amazing display of lights!

Not sure if Maddon was more excited about the lights or his hot cocoa with marshmellows!

The Louden's house gets better each year!


We spent several hours at ICE at The Gaylord....thanks to Grammy and Grampy for watching Colbie!

This was the entrance!

Always like to capture the famous name of Charles Schulz since it it spelled the exact same way as my Charlie's!

Can you believe this is all made from ice!!!

Maddon's turn on the slide made out of ice!
