Our baby is 5 years old today!

Here I am 5 years ago on my birthday; waiting for Olivia's arrival. She came 2 days later: July 16th, 2001
Never imagined I would have a c-section, but guess what I did! The anticipation of having her was the most exhilarating experience of my life. I loved the excitement of not knowing when she was going to come.

My little Olivia; Happy Birthday. How did you go from this to five in literally a blink of an eye?! I love you so much and I am so glad to be your mommy.

Fun times

Happy Birthday to me!


Liv's friends at her party



Joy and Olivia had A LOT of fun this past weekend







Family Party

It's been a tradition to have Olivia take a picture by this board.
Birthday girl loves her sister

Can't beat the Costco cake; yummy


Does anyone need some fries with that?



Well we now have 2 girls, life is full and were glad to be raising our family together. Parenting isn't for cowards?! I am glad I have Brad to walk and carry me thru this journey. We have more grey hairs than we did 5 years ago, but it's worth it; it truly is! I can't believe our Little Liv is going to be 5 in a few days. She is such a gift!




Glorious 4th

Liv wore her head phones while watching some backyard fireworks that Brad bought. She decided it was to loud so she watched them inside with her head phones on. This is Bradeon our neighbor.
She made it up about half way

Noblesville Parade and lots of candy given out

My little firecrackers








Hot Air Ballon Ride







Brad and Liv finally took the "plunge" and went on the Connor Prairie Hot Air Balloon. I happily stayed back with Ava and watched. They both said it was great.

Summer Dance Class Videos

I LOVE watching Olivia dance. The class is precious and the music is so relaxing. If she could always stay "this little"...

Ava is now 8 months

A few weeks ago I turned 8 months old. I love the swing. This is my new favorite thing to do. I can say Daa, Daa. I am working on mama next.

My college gals

Here is the newest Frantz: Lydia
Here are some of the kids-Ava and Lydia are inside


We had so much fun catching up. It may take a year to plan a get together, but it's always worth the wait.










Being Silly

Last week after I put Ava down Liv and I would come outside and sit on "story rock" and just hang out. This particular night we just took silly pictures of ourselves. Some nights we were outside until ten. Summer is good!
