What we did this summer!

My Mom and Dad spent a lot of time on this slideshow for Eli. This was a song that we all heard when we left Eli the first time at the hospital, and we knew Eli's life was in the hands of someone bigger than us all. The pictures match perfectly with the words of the song, grab a tissue! You can read a little more about our journey at:

Kendall Turns 2!

This already seems like it was forever ago! The Holiday flew by as usual, and in the midst of all the chaos, Kendall turned 2! Our little Kennel is a joy to be around. She keeps us all laughing, loves to talk on the phone and loves to sing “I Am a Child of God” into pretend microphones while she sways back and forth. She is still naughty, and gets a little nervous when her baby cousins come at her…she thinks they are going to claw her eyes out. She sees them coming from a mile a way and yells “AHHHH EYES!” then proceeds to cover her face. Se looks like me and acts like her daddy.

Kendall loves to give “mooches”, and absolutely LOVES Dora!

It snowed a few days after her birthday…right before Thanksgiving. She loved playing in the snow with Rylin, but has hated the snow since this day for some reason.

Baby Ellie

Weighing in at 6 lbs 2 oz and 17.7 inches long, is the newest member of the Soptich family…Miss Ellie Mae. We heart her and are thankful for her *early* yet, safe arrival. Amanda is doing awesome, recovering from the c-section like a champ. Ellie has Kyle’s lips with Amanda’s eyes and nose. A full head of brown hair, and is mastering the “peek through one eye at the world” stare. She is uh-mazing! We love her and are so excited for Kyle and Amanda to have their bundle of surprise joy just in time for Christmas.

Hallows Eve and the Big 2-8

Because Halloween was on Sunday night, we went trick or treating on Saturday at our church’s Trunk or Treat/Carnival. Rylin was Jessie, Kendall and I were fairies, and Dustin was Iron Man! It began by not being Kendall’s favorite night, but eventually she started to have fun. She just hated taking pictures!

We Celebrated Dustin’s birthday and had our annual Halloween bash on Sunday. It was a blast, we had a lot of food, treats and crazy things going on like normal.

Ry + preschool = love

Ry loves preschool. She goes three days a week and wants to go more, she was actually crying earlier (what’s new?!?) because she wants to go more. Sorry for the crazy crop, but I didn’t feel comfortable posting pictures with her name/school name, school phone # and address, can you blame me?

Kennel-boo thought Ry was so cool, she loves to copy her.

Misses Moose is full of sass, for real, she’s nuts! Blythe and Kendall felt a little left out, so we took a pic of them together:


Peace out!
