A few more pics

Yes, another update already. This is Michelle (Alicia's sister) and I had a few pics on my camera to add as well.

We did a little furniture moving and cleaning and here's the final product. Cora's therapy swing is the newest addition to the Stier household and according to Sam is "the best thing we've ever installed in this house."
Alicia's home-away-from-home the past few weeks:
Thanks Ronald.
This is Cora and I waiting for Alicia to check out of the Ronald McDonald House. She is ready to go home!
It was great to be able to see Cora again. Love you Stiers!

Hooray for Halloween!

Can you believe that today is Halloween and I am posting this? I know, it's a miracle. The kids had lots of fun trick-or-treating and just as much fun handing out candy. For once, the weather was great. Cora was a cat and you can't really tell by the pics but she has a tail too. The actual picture- taking was quite hilarious as we couldn't get Cora to stay sitting very long. The boys weren't much help either :)


I just had to post these pics of Cora. She was giggling at the movie. It was so cute!

Sam's Birthday

Sam had a pretty low-key 7th birthday this year. Max came over for cake and ice cream but the big present was a parakeet! We have been researching pets for a month and finally decided on a bird. Sam named him Arnie (don't ask me where he got that!) He is very sweet and quite tame. He loves to just sit on Sam's shoulder and we've only had him for a week! Did you know parakeets can live up to 14 years! Sam has been doing a great job taking care of him. Not quite the same as a dog but much easier to care for. We miss you Buddy!

Our trip to Moab was awesome! We stayed in the most amazing place called Moab Springs Ranch. The boys had a blast swimming, catching tadpoles, rafting, and hiking to see the arches. Thanks to Tony's Tours (aka: dad) for putting together an amazing family vacation/reunion! By the way, the tiny white dot sitting at the base of the arch is Sam. :) What a trooper!

Sshh... I'm eating.

What a multi-tasker! She can sleep while eating and keep her little hands folded in such a lady-like fashion!
