Wrapping up the year 2012!

Happy Holidays from our family to yours! Just wanted to update you all on what's going on here :)

Lyndsey: Well, It's been official since July but no more childcare job for me! Photography is my new passion and allows me to stay home with my kiddos as well as enjoy using my artistic side to help people have great photos at a great price. If you are interested, please check out my page on facebook (Melrose Photography). Today I reached 300 likes (in 5 months!!) so I am hosting a free shoot giveaway. I am really grateful to have a thriving business in today's economy. I really love what I do!! (And I make more than I ever did in childcare- BONUS!)

Dustin: It's been a bit of a tough few months for my honey. He lost one of his best friends, his grandma, a couple of months ago, and at the same time lost his parents to their mission in the Congo. He is a great man and is so sweet with our girls. He's been so strong through all of this. Love you honey.

Melody:  Our sweet Melody was diagnosed with severe classic autism in August. I am now doing a blog for her, "Hope for Melody" http://www.hopeformelody.blogspot.com if you'd like to follow her progress. Her birthday was in October and she started preschool about a month before that! She is a little teacher's pet (though it was a rough start) and absolutely LOVES school and her teachers! We are so lucky!! She loves Elmo still and loves pretty things :) The other day we bought her new purple shoes and she insisted on sleeping in them Hahahah. 100% girl! Favorite foods are toast, yogurt, bananas, and rice.

Brooklyn: Brookie will be 10 months old on December 4th and this little lady is really growing up too fast! She is walking now, though still usually crawls since she is SSOOO fast at it (haha). She says "Dada, Hi dad, I did it, Mum, and Baba". She has been bringing out more speech in Melody which is SO amazing. She also taught Melody to climb up the slide (lol!!) She is such a little spitfire and has the sweetest smile. She always is sticking her little tongue out like her daddy did at that age. It's really funny and cute. Her favorite foods are eggs, bread, bananas, baby food in the squeezy tubes, and chewing on anything and everything in sight! Still no teeth and just enough hair to put in to a tiny pony on top :) Just like her sister in that way but her hair is darker than Melody's.

Our Family We spent Thanksgiving with the Wright family siblings in Idaho Falls- so fun! We are just enjoying life and taking it a day at a time :)
