Way to go RAMS!! State Champs!!!









WAHOOO!!! Way to go Rockford!! We are soooo proud of the Rams today as they take home yet another state championship in football. They played their hearts out in front of a HUGE crowd at the Ford Field in Detroit. Rockford beat Lake Orion 26-14 in a fantastic game. Maddie cheered like a super fan for the first half and then was totally tuckered out and slept on Grandma's lap for the second. :) We are also so very proud of Brogan and were so happy to see him win his final game as a Ram. Way to go boys!!

Visiting Santa



For the third year in a row, we took Maddie to see a GREAT Santa Clause at Great Northern in down town Rockford. He is an author that writes children's books and comes once a year to the store to autograph books and chat with the kids. Maddie was a little more hesitant than she has been in years past. I was kinda waiting for that to happen. :) She asked him for a "Potty Baby"...yeah, great. At least the one she wants doesn't really go potty! :) Just think...next year we'll have TWO for Santa's lap!! :D

Welcome Allory Mae








Allory Mae Burkholder was welcomed very early this morning around 12:30am. She is absolutely perfect and just a little sweetie. She looks a great deal like Jackson, but different too. :) She weighed in at 8lbs. 1 oz and is 22 1/2 inches long! :D Both her and Melissa are doing great. Jackson is a very proud big Brother and was really excited when Allory bought him a cool new Buzz Lightyear doll. :) Adam and Melissa are so blessed with this two beautiful children. We love you guys and are so thrilled everything went so well.

Grandma's 80th












Grandma Snellink turned 80 years young this past Friday, and celebrated with the whole family. A great dinner provided by Uncle Jim, was fabulous!! While Grandma chatted with some other family members us Hosfords went upstairs for a few minutes to try our hand at wii bowling and boxing. It was comical to say the least. It's actually a ton of fun for a whole family! :)

Thank you to Grandma for celebrating your day with us. We love you Gran!!

Halloween 2008







So, another Halloween come and gone...unbelievable. What an AMAZING night weather wise!! We had lots of our dear friends stop by and bring their kiddos all dressed up. Thanks for stopping buy everyone!!

Maddie LOVED being Princess Aurora (AKA- Sleeping Beauty). Of course...due to the fact that she's PINK. :D She was pretty pooped by the time the day was done, but had so much fun with her friends.

Hope you all had a great Halloween! Look forward to seeing all the pictures!! :D
