Happy Halloween

Of course we dressed Alex up for Halloween and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that he was a monkey: Abram came over to Trick or Treat and I got a few pictures: I won’t be at all surprised if next year Wade wants to make Alex a costume. Wade has quite an impressive…

Helping Dad

Wade’s latest project is putting a new floor down in part of the basement. We got a kick out of watching Alex explore: And my favorite: Happy Birthday Katrina!

Favorite Fall Tree

Growing up everyone in my family always chose a favorite tree as the leaves were changing. It’s a little hard to do that being in different cities, but the internet helps. Here is my favorite fall tree in Milwaukee.

So Big Already?

As I was getting Alex dressed this morning, I remembered buying these overalls while I was pregnant and thinking he could wear them for Valentine’s Day. Obviously that won’t happen, but I do like the overalls. Alex is now into funny faces – although I’m not sure he realizes what he is doing: And lately…

    I check your website everyday (now that I’m retired) to keep up with the adventures of the Burch Family! Alex is so adorable. The new “faces” are really cracking me up. What a cute little boy! Holly can you send me an email – my transfers from work didn’t make the trip (big surprise) – so I don’t have it anymore. A big hug to you, Wade and Alex! Sorry I missed you while you were in Atlanta.

Newly Mobile

Alex never used rolling to get across the room. He has been getting up on all fours and scooting backwards for a while now. A couple of days ago he figured out how to move and now crosses entire rooms. He has an inchworm type movement that I find hilarious. He is also very good…

It’s Completely Done!

The bathroom is officially completed – construction wise. I still need to buy towels and mats. Wade surprised me with a built-in cabinet when I got home from Kentucky, but it took me a few days to get it painted. The shower door was also installed while I was gone. Tonight Wade made the doorjamb…

Apple Holler

Today we decided on a short road trip – to Apple Holler. I loved all of the activities they have for kids, but Alex was still a little too young for most of them. He did love the goats: We looked at the pumpkins but decided not to buy one. We still have several at…

Pumpkin Extravaganza

Wade and I had a lot of fun getting ready for our pumpkin carving party. Finally the house was clean, the food was cooked, the pumpkins were out, and the fire was lit. We even let Alex play with the pumpkins before anyone arrived: Mike, Carissa, and Emelia were the first to arrive. We put…
