Enjoying our Winter Break!

The loves of my life - my two boys

As you can see, we went out sledding today and had a blast. This was actually our first time out this year. Jackson was thrilled when Adam sent him down for the first time. We didn't realize how nice of a sledding hill we had on the side of the house - perfect and not too close to the river :) Jackson and Adam built a snowman earlier this week, which he proudly named "Shrek." We have to give a thanks to Carol and Brad for the great hats. Jackson is sporting the Minne-SO-ta hockey hat that they sent him for Christmas....while Adam still wears the hat Carol knit for him when Jackson was born!! What talent! Thanks you two for always thinking of our little man.

Saturday, December 29, 2007 better watch out

The excitement on his face was priceless - Santa brought
him exactly what he asked for ...a Leap Frog computer :)

Jackson got a camera from Mom & Dad - he is so excited
to be able to take his own pictures now! I have an official helper.

Two more stockings were added this year for the
youngest boys - Colin and Owen - for a total of 19!

Colton - almost 2 years old

Jackson with his Papa and Gigi Heth

What an amazing day we had on Christmas. We were able to actually sleep in for a change and woke up around 9:30. Jackson was so excited when he woke up and realized that Santa had come to his house while he was sleeping. We headed down to my parents for brunch with the whole fam and have the kids open their gifts. What a riot to watch them all together and think back to our Christmas mornings with just the 8 of us. My how things have changed. Both of our families have been blessed with healthy, happy children and wonderful siblings and parents to spend our holidays with. We ended the day at the Burkholder's and had a great time. I hope everyone had a great holiday!

Merry Christmas!!

Jackson loves having his picture taken...but by the end this was the face he wanted to show me - definitely a sign we were done :) Merry Christmas to everyone - enjoy this blessed time with your families. We are really looking forward to some QT with just the three of us. Love and hugs to all.

Boys, Boys, Boys



Owen and Colin...3 weeks apart


The Heth family has always had girls, girls and girls. Well, now that we are all having children, we have lots of boys. Between Adam and my family, there is one girl and 5 boys! Jackson being the oldest, then Colton, Brayden, Colin and Owen. Wow!

The Count

Lauren, Colin, Jackson, Owen and Colton

So, yes I know these are only about 8 weeks late....but as most of you know I am completely swamped with work. I will catch up someday. I don't complain because I love what I do and am anxious for my business to really take off. So...above are some great pics from Halloween with the cousins. Jackson was "The Count" for Halloween, but managed to look more like Dracula instead - oh well! We put his tux for Aunt Kelly's wedding to good use :) He wasn't really into trick-or-treating, he had more fun playing at Papa & Gigi's house and then over to Jack's house to watch the kids come to the door.

Sophia Lynn

The proud boys

Only 4 hours old

What a Nolan face!

Sophie's first bath

Sophie Lynn Rinehart came into the world Saturday morning completely surprising her parents that she was a GIRL!! What a blessing that she arrived 3 weeks early and is healthy and happy. Kristen and Donovan are planning on coming home from the hospital today. Both Ryar and Nolan were excited to have a baby sister even though they were asking for a new brother. Congratulations to all four of you - we are so happy for you! She was 6 lbs. 9 oz. and 18" long.
