Family Easter Photoshoot

Easter at the Manor was filled with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. However, between all of the chocolate we were able to sit down and take a few photos as a family. Thankfully, James was there to snap a few and to post process them so they look amazing. Thanks James!

It has happened….

….the twins are now mobile, or at least one of them is. Addison got her hands and knees coordinated and is on the move. Drew hasn’t quite gotten the crawling piece put together yet but loves the wood floor as she drags herself all over the place in a commando crawl. Very happy we got

Laughing with Great Grandma

We had a lovely visit with Great Grandma (GG as she hates to be called) and Great Grandpa (the old man as he loves to be called). The kids were in great spirits laughing and giggling, playing with their special toys. Check out some of the laughs: Great Grandma 2015-01-23 from Jan G on Vimeo.
