New rooms!

This weekend Grant and I decided to change around the kids' rooms. We moved the girls into the smaller room upstairs and it looks great, there was how ever some argument over who was going to have to sleep next to the window. In the boys room, Wyatt is sleeping on one side of the room in his giant Dora tent, he has his own little house in there, complete with a t.v., a cd player and an old nintendo 64. The adjustment for the boys has gone well so far. Grant put a new light fixture in there and put up a wall shelf unit to store toys and what not on. The updates to the house are starting to happen, just at a slower rate, but we do have 4 kids! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Ethan the Incredible Hulk

Oh, to have the muscles of an 8 year old, can you believe how cut he is???


The Snyder and Christiansen kids on Christmas at Ellen's house.

Makenna's birthday

Here are the kids on Makenna's birthday. Bear with me, I know that these are coming a little out of order, but at least I am finally getting some good pictures out!

Friday the 13th....

Today has been a good day. The kids both had good days at school and Ethan got lucky and was able to skip Tae Kwon Do tonight so that we could rent a few movies and get some dinner at Culver's. Grant is sick today, he finally got the flu/ cold stuff that Ethan and I have had.
On another note, Grant was honored again with an award of merit for all of his hard work that he has done and was even nomintated by someone from another unit that observed his work. He also got the word this week that he made the S.W.A.T team. We are so proud of him! Thats all for us this week!

Here is the most recent picture of Raven. I weighed him the other day and he is up to 40 pounds and will be 4 months old on the 11th.


Here are the kids on Christmas morning. That was only about a 1/4 of the presents that they got!

First snow

Raven had a fun first experience with snow, he didn't want to come back in the house!

Raven and Dad

Raven really is a big baby. He likes to be cuddled and usually pushes you to the edge of the bed. The bigger he gets the more room he takes up!

Puppy Pictures

You would think that we never feed him!

Our New Addition

Here is our new family member, Raven. He was born on 9/11/05.

With the Birthdays and Holidays....

With the birthdays and holidays, I got behind on the posting of pictures and such. So I am going to start tonight! Wish me luck!
