2005 - Surprise! We are pregnant again! Its another BOY!

2006 - We have new member of our family! Parker James 8 lbs. 10 oz.

2007 - We built our first home...and double surprise...we're pregnant again! It's a GIRL!

2008 - We welcomed the most beautiful baby girl. Eden Elizabeth 7 lbs. 9 oz.

2009 - Well, it was the least eventful year of the decade, but we did cross a trip to Hawaii off of our bucket list, and I ran an amazing marathon in Rome! :)

We wish everyone a very happy New Year and can't wait to see what the next decade will bring! All I know is that I will have a 16 year old, a 13 year old and an 11 year old. OMG!!

The Devennys Spreading Holiday Cheer

I don't know why I tried to get a pic of the kids at this time of the day, but I did. Unfortunately, it did not yield the results I had hoped! It did though, remind me that it was wine time! (and WHINE time)

Me telling the kids to stand still for a minute so I can take their picture. Parker makes his stoned smile face (a very familiar look for him) and Eden is still recovering from the snatched car (see half dried tear on cheek).

Them being told where to sit. Eden not amused to be on lap, Parker in his own world (per usual) and Jacob obeying nicely.

Eden throwing fit and Parker giving me the best smile he can. The minute I say "smile guys!" his eyes close and stay that way.

Eden still fit throwing and Parker still 'asleep'.

Jacobs smile starting to get faker and his nostrils start flaring. What always happens when he smiles for too long. Parker still sleeping and Eden looking stoned. Still mad.

Cropped baby Diva out so I could get at least one decent pic.

Jacob looking like a serial killer (he has been smiling way too long) and Eden getting up to show me that she is still mad. (note that Parker is still sleep smiling)

Diva storimg off, Jacob starting to tire and Parker still assuming the position.

Oh uh, now she's mad.

Pancake on the floor time! :)

She thinks she'll look back to be sure she still has an audience.

Eden still crying, now in other room. Boys tired of sitting. At least its a pretty cute pic.

Another OK one.

Uh oh, she's coming back! Parker is done anyway.

And one more for the road.

This is what almost every photo session in this house consists of! Tears from one, fake smile from the other and then one living on Mars. Sigh. I don't know how you all get such cute pics of all your kids at once!!
