Still alive

Can't believe my last post was Jan 2nd.  I have no excuses... we've been busy and I haven't  made the time to sit and download pics and let our nonexistent blog followers know what's going on.

It's almost March 2015 and I have lots to go back and blog about.  Maybe this one post will spark my interest to get that done.

This pic was taken today at Toppe's before the egg hunt.  Look how big these 3 are getting!!!!  Love them!

Happy Birthday Toppe!

Toppe made another trip around the sun and we love that we could celebrate with another candle on the cake.  

 Mom and I's 1st attempt at a selfie..... laughed until we cried!!!

Blowing out the candles

Pics with the Big Man

We all know that Santa is super busy and so he must enlist many volunteers to help him fulfill all his appearances at malls and parties across the world, BUT the real Santa takes time to come to Brenham to see the kids and find out what is on their wish list.

I'd love to have heard all this coversation!   The kids did tell me that Santa told them he remembered giving their grandpa Otto his first baesball glove.  Santa has a GREAT memory!

Feel the love

This picture cracks me up because it is a regular occurrence in our house... maybe not the pinching but Caleb & Avery fighting/bickering/yelling at each other.  They are both a bit high maintenance.  Caleb loves agitating his sister and Avery feels it is her duty to tell Caleb what to do at all times.  I pray they'll one day be best friends but until then we'll have a few arguments to settle.

A little random Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2014

Maurer Party of 5 has soooo much to be thankful for.  More than ever I am thankful for our health and the health of our family. It's tough to see families that are struggling with sickness and chronic illness.  We are beyond blessed measure and though days are not always easy, we really don't have much we can complain about.  Happy Thanksgiving!
