Here's what happens. . .

Here's what happens when you add a fourth child to the mix. You forget that you have a two year old who likes to get into everything! Mostly things that she's NOT suppose to be into. Here's a typical morning, me putting her hair up. She sits still and doesn't fight me at all.
This picture would be what happens when you aren't watching your 2 year old and she gets into the cabinet in the bathroom with daddy's pomade in it. I guess she didn't want her pigtails any more and wanted a faux-hawk like her dad and brother.

Fun from the Crisp house

Me using Gideon as a shield from the camera.
Gideon just being cute!

I know it's dark, but it's too cute not to post. Olivia holding Gideon - for some reason she thinks she can't relax her arms while she's holding him.

Nana and Pa-pa with all the kids - this photo session went surprisingly well!
Garrett, Olivia, and Elijah showing us their mean faces. Check out the drool on Garrett's shirt, he was foaming at the mouth!

I'm so glad to be back in blog-land! It feels like forever since I posted. I wanted to share some of the other pictures from after we got home with Gideon. The house was buzzing with excitement, and six other kids! On that note, I want to say thank you once again to my whole "in-law" family who took on the huge task of keeping our kids while we stayed in the hospital. I don't think they will ever know what peace it gave me to know that the kids were well taken care of and loved while Josh and I weren't there. THANK YOU!

Gideon Pics

Jess will probably kill me, but this is the trooper after she had received her epidural. She was so relaxed that she took a quick snooze. Have I ever mentioned how much I love this woman? She is the best ever!!!

Welcome Gideon!!! This is right after the birth.

Gideon getting his nose sucked out and cleaned up. He is such a good boy so far.

Mommy and baby resting after the long night. Aren't they cute?

The kids were so excited to meet their new little brother. Garrett was making sure that Gideon would be sleeping in his room. We had to let him know that it would be a few weeks, but yeah, he'll sleep in your room buddy.

I'm sure that there will be more photos, but this is all for now. We are just so excited about the new addition of the family!!!

Gideon Joshua Crisp

We are excited to annnounce that Gideon Joshua was brought into the world at 12:09 am this fine Thanksgiving morning. He weighed 7 lbs. 3 ounces and was 19 inches long. We will have pictures later, I am on a hospital computer where I cannot download pictures. I will get those up as soon as possible. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!! We are!

Erin is the oldest VanSingle girl and Esther the youngest Crisp - they hang out together when our families get together. Erin is a good little babysitter.

Halloween take one

This is the first picture I could get of the kids from last night. Our church did a Trunk or Treat night and took photo's for all who wanted them. Josh tested out the background and unfamiliar camera with our kids. We have other pictures to come. . .including a "super hero's only" photo with some other kids from the church. Overall it was a great night. The kids learned that it's not all about instant gratification, when they had to wait for daddy to be done his shift of photo taking to take them out for their candy. Tough lesson, for all of us, let alone a 4 1/2 and 3 1/2 year old! But Wonder Woman, Superman and our little Pink Poodle (she only got called a sheep once) were troopers, even as the rain shower fell on them while they went house to house.
