They made a drive through. And were playing McDonald's. It was very cute.
Leelani Maree Renz March 2007
Leelani was a very helpful child. She helped us know everyone better faster.
Tyrell Austin Renz
Tyrell was very fussy about his name at first. We were not allowed to call him buddy, dude, friend, i think when we used those he just thought we didn't know his name. So he woud scream CALL ME TYRELL!
Tyrell our Web Slinger!
Tyrell really loved spiderman.
Anthony Quentin Renz
He was such a sweet little cherub. Until someone gave him candy. He would then scream and through the biggest tantrums. He even knocked out a couple of teeth. He would just throw himself on the ground.
Such a cuddle bunny!
He was a cutie.
THE WONDER TWINS!!!
They were very active little babies, they still are.
Will the evil twin please stand up?
Only time will tell which one that is.
Two times the trouble.
Double the Pleasure
Double the Fun!
Decorating Easter Eggs March 2005
OUr friends the Lamberts & the Nickoloff's came to decorate with us.
I don't think we broke to many.
Checking out our Easter Baskets!
Hunting for Eggs
Our Easter Parade
Playing on a snowy day.
TWO TWO TWO treats in one!
Two times the mess!
Playing a bit in May
Anthony went through a phase that he carried this doll around with him everywhere. We called it his girlfriend.
Snow has melted for the most part, and we can play outside again.
I took the kids to the carnival in Wolf Point.
Their birth parents and a few of their other siblings met us there. I suprvised the visit.
More carnival in Wolf Point
We had a princess tea party for Leelani's 8th birthday.
Eveyln came and taught the proper way for the girls to drink. We had a scavenger hunt and they got to decorate their own cake.
The girls all looked great and had a wonderful time.
we played pin the kiss on the frog and I made a castle pinata
Apparently my never getting a pinata at a party has made me have a pinata at almost everything.
More party.. ok so i can't spell Princess
pictures from the scavenger hunt
The twins, Pirncess in Training.
This is Danny Renz (brth Dad) and Justine Sheilds (birth Mom)
Jim makes these great flowers out of gears and scrap metal.
This summer was a lot of fun. Both aunts came and got to share some quality time with the kids.
Eveyln is alwasy such a great suport and resource with all of the children we had.
Nanny Granny as she calls herself is a rare gift. Even though she may feel like a casualty in some of our Foster Parenting, she was sure a help and blessing to us.
Tyrell's impromptu party
Pretty good for no notice.
We lucked out and Christine was in town for his party.
The kids loved playing with the litters of puppies.
It was good taming for the puppies too. We new they had strong hearts after that.
We even found out that some of them could bounce well.
We went with Bill's Parents (Jim & Evelyn) to Bismarck with the children.
Up north, some hotels have water parks indoors. They were so worth it.
They were SO LITTLE, i just can't get over how fast they have grown.
Fun is Bismarck ND
We love indoor water slides. It plays to the vampire in me. AKA SUN CHICKEN
The kids made forts in the hotel room.
You ask were are the twins? They were so little that they stayed in Jim & Eve's room while we played in the pool. I think it worked out great. Grandpa got to read but yet didn't feel preasurred to come play.
I do not know where all my haolloween photos have gone.
Leelani was Poh Bear, Tyrell Tiger, Anthony Piglet and then the two pots of honey for the ward Christmas Party. IT WAS SO CUTE! I let them be what they wanted for halloween nite though. But i can't find those pictures either.
the only precious halloween pictures
Anthony did not have a very good Halloween. Someone screamed monster the first time the door bell rang. He saw the "monster" at the door and did not stop screaming till bedtime. I had to hide with him in a bedroom with the tv loud. Every time the door bell rang he woudl start screaming againg because the monsters would get him.
The making of the Pow Wow regalia
They were very excited.
I tried really hard, i didn't want them to stick out as the "white girl regalia"
You know... the one that had NO diea what she was doing.
Jingle dresses for the babies.
The only nove problem i saw was the littel strings that hold the jingles i cut too short. So they didn't exagtly jingle like they should. But at least the didn't stadt straight out like little daggers. However NIkki may have liked that.
The Thanksgiving Pow Wow in Poplar
Every body had to take a breather.
Lots of fun! I even got used to how loud the drums were.
We met up with their other birth family, brothers and aunts and even Great Grandma Angie
Our first thanksgiving with the children.
JIm & Eve went to visit one of the girls. So we had a cozy small dinner.
I still had SOOO many left overs.
We had a gingerbread making party at the Lambert's
We had a lot of fun, the kids got to make their own houses. Some of the candy actually got on the houses.
They were so cute. I was impressed how creative they were. Even at such young ages.
Christmas Eve with JIm, Evelyn Heather (Bill's Parents & Sister)
We all dressed up. It was nice.
Christmas Day, Gifts from Santa
Christmas day lounging.
Christmas stocking as so much fun. And what a MESS!!!
School Production Leelani was in
A musical assortment of the Wizard of OZ.
Culbertson School District Wizard of Oz
Considering they had to combine k-12 in one play they did a good job trying to use everyone.
