Some things you just HAVE to blog!!!!

Yep, I'm breaking my blogging hiatus for this.....

The MAGIC childhood moments that no more training wheels bring!!


You go, Bekah!!!


And for you, Nana....



But that's not all...look who couldn't be outdone!!!

Of course, going back up the hill is easier this way!!

(OK, Nana, this video is weird...it will tell you it's unavailable, but if you double click it will take you to watch it on Youtube....)


But, wait, there's more!

Remember THIS? (March, 2009)

Well, check out this!! Today, October 22, 2010


Woot, Woot!
And for a closer look (yeah, we're still waiting for more to come in....)
(ok, those are not rotten teeth on the bottom, he just wants everyone to see his black retainer icky...BTW....see his little "caterpillar" on his top lip?!?!?!? How'd that happen?!?!)
...and until those other teeth come in, we have "retainer buddies"!
Ok, can you believe this post still isn't done?

The BIG finale:

First peek at new Washburn Baby....almost 14 weeks!
We found out on Brian's birthday in August we were expecting this new little one...and guess the due date....Catherine's birthday in April! Now talk about a loving God who gives good gifts?!?!? All looks good, and we are hopeing and praying this baby gets to come to our home this time!

So, now you know the reason for the blog hiatus....so keep praying for us!

Mom's going to have to get the shotgun out instead of Dad! And, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prayers started right away with that last addition!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
