This is the mama checking in.  Just wanted to share a few photos of the recent fun up here...

 Sweet Hannah has been taking wonderful care of her baby brother.  She is so capable and careful.  It is such a joy to watch her grow up with a heart for caring for the little ones.  I tell her that she has more experience with babies and toddlers than I did when she was born.  We're learning together.

I snapped this photo last week when the sun popped out for a few minutes.  Luke grabbed his guitar and decided to practice on the deck while Lars ran circles around him on a tricycle.

 My parents spent a few days with us last week.  Baby Hans found a cozy place on grandpa to snooze.

Yes, he's really eight years old already.  We made him a key lime pie and spent the day playing legos.  We love you, Lukeman!

making dessert

Last night Della and I made dessert for our family.  We made Pavlova - it is like a big divinity cookie.  We served it with whipped cream and berries.  Yum!
 Della always wants to wear the chef hat when she cooks.
 We had to mix the ingredients for 15 minutes.

Della quote

"I wish that all the ticks would get eaten by beaws (bears)"
I agree.

Baby Lars

Lars was pretending to be a baby. I know he looks ridiculous. He doesn't fit in the car seat anymore. Rachel was the Mommy.
