My Baby is Four! How did that happen so fast???

Katlynn wanted a Hannah Montana/Make-up/Princess party so we tried to incorporate all of those into one party!
This was the picture on the cake that I made for her.One day I will give up trying and just buy a cake but even though mine never turn out the way I want them to look, they always taste better than store-bought.Felicia, Danielle and Lauren were all sweet enough to help with the make-up/princess part of the party. We set up a make-over room for the girls and Felicia did the make-up, Danielle painted the finger nails and Lauren did the hair. Then the girls got to pick out a princess dress to wear for the party and I (of course) took a picture of them.
Here is a picture of all the kids after their make-overs!
And here is Katlynn putting on a show in her Hannah Montana wig :)Even Jason and Adam had to take a turn trying it on :) Don't they look cute!

I am so behind

January flew by for some reason and I got behind on everything! So here a short update to catch everyone up on what's been going on recently!
That's right! Zack and Danielle are engaged!
You can read about it in Danielle's words on her Blog
Adam and Anna Reuter welcomed their new son, Atticus, into the world on January 16th! He is so cute!Leigh Anne, Kelly and I all went to see him at the hospital that night but Kelly made me delete the picture I took of her holding him :)
We had Amy's baby shower for little Addie (who we hope for Amy's sake will be making her grand entrance very soon) on January 24th. It was so much fun. She got lots of cool presents... And we played "How much toliet paper will it take to fit around Amy's stomach". The eight year old daughter of one of the ladies who was at the shower actually won this game. :) And eveyone had to draw a baby with the paper on top of their head. Those were hilarious to see!

Meet the Boswell/Henson/Hinesley/Green/Powell Family

I never thought I would be able to get my entire family together for a photo shoot on the same day but it happened, barely! So this is my crazy family.
Alright here goes, so technically, I'm an only child. The only one my mom and dad have but my mom has three other daughters and my dad has three sons. Sorta of like a weird version of the Brady Bunch :) My Mom is the center of our family on her side and I don't know what I would do without her. I don't know how people live in a different city much less a different state than their moms especially when they have kids. I think I would go crazy. She a great mom and an even better "Grandma"! Alden and Katlynn love going to spend the night at her house!My Dad is the center of our family on his side. He's a great dad and a great "Pop". I picked the name Pop for him because that is what we called his grandfather, W.B. Hammond and he was an awesome man!This is my first step-mom, Gaye(with Katlynn). She and my Dad met when I was two so I don't remember a time that she wasn't in my life. And even though she and my dad are no longer married we still keep in touch and she's a wonderful "Nana" to my kids.This is Kathy, my Dad's wife and "Grammie" to Alden and Katlynn. She and Dad got married in May 2008 and she is very sweet.And here are all my brothers and sisters!Felicia is five years younger than me. She and Brandon will be celebrating their one year anniversary next month. She's a great sister (now that we don't have to live together) and an awesome aunt! She and Andrew are probably the ones that make the most effort to spend time with Alden and Katlynn and I truely appreciate it. I can't wait to be the cool aunt to their kids one day.
Andrew is also five years younger than I am. He was born four days after Felicia! He's a great uncle and the kids already love his girlfriend, Tessa, too. Andrew came over the other day and Katlynn looked behind him and then turned in disappointment and asked "Why didn't you bring Tessa?" Briana is next in the line up age-wise. She's 16 and a total teenage but we love her! And her boyfriend, Jacob seems pretty cool too.Austin is only five months younger than Briana so he's 16, too. He's living the teenage life now too but he is so sweet. (when he wants to be)Miss Drama Queen, Taylor, is the next to youngest of my siblings. She's 15 and totally crazy but lots of fun!Avery is the baby of my family. He's 12 and so quiet. We don't get to see him as much because he lives with Gaye near Columbus but Alden thinks he's so cool and loves to play with him when we do get to see him.And last but certainly not least is my mom's sister and her family. She's Sissy to me and everyone else in our family and we love her (and Brad, Cody & Bruce) to death! She's the person you can call with any problem and she's got a solution for it whether it's what you want to hear or not. :) Personality wise I'm probably more like her than anyone else.

So that's my crazy family.
