found this on one of my costume blogs, obviously it's not costume themed but the girl is a christian and wanted to share it. Anyway, it made me cry and I of course thought of all the amazing things that have happened in the last year to bring mom and dad to love people, serve them and help them change their lives just like this shows. We serve a powerful and awesome God! Enjoy :)

Life with the Ouimets...

Just wanted to share a few cute pics of the kids when we went to the zoo last weekend. And I am wondering if Emily took pictures of them trick or treating? cause I know I'd like to see them. :D

At a recent weekend up in Oak Glen with all my amazing siblings, the idea of a group blog was thrown out. Mostly as a way for us all to keep mom and dad(Who recently moved to Seattle) updated and involved. So as the middle child and in general the "Planner" of the group I took the liberty of starting said blog.

My hope is that over the coming months and even years this can be a great way for us all to stay as close as we have always been. Even when Gods calling is states away, or even countries for that matter. We are blessed to have such a close knit and loving family. I know I thank God for each one of you daily :-)

So what are the rules? There are none! Post pictures! Post stories! Post thoughts! Post anything and everything, this blog is all about us, and that means whatever you feel like doing with it is exactly what should be done! This excites me =)

I will however start with a quick rundown of who the "Lilley" kids are for any outside readers who might not know all the amazing characters and chemistry that makes us the Lilleys! (Feel free to post a blog in more detail about yourself:-)

Nole Hunter is the oldest of the Lilley siblings, He is a intelligent and funny person a lot like my dad. He is married to the always beautiful Heather Lynn. She is so talented and has added a lot to the Lilley family! They have two wonderful children Avery Bay and North Hunter.

The oldest Lilley girl is AnnaMae Ouimet. She was named after our moms mom<3 She is also very talented and is such a strong amazing wife to her husband Nathan Levi. Nathan works for the Navy and loves anything that is "Man" such as jeeps and guns:-) We love having him around. They also have two children Gabriel Talon and Gwendolin Marrin!

Emily Rose Mooney (Thats me) is the middle of all the children, and loves her family more then anything including her husband Cody James. Cody is working to become a firefighter and they have zero children ;-)

Erin Elain Schlegel is the youngest of the Lilley girls. She has always been the baby of the family and cares so much about the people in her life, and she has all the brains! She is married to the crazy and always fun Dustin (Whats his middle name!?!) haha and they are expecting their first child Talon Vaughn any day now!

Edward Bruce is the youngest of us all, he was adopted into our family but you would never know it! He fits right in. He is loved everywhere he goes and has such a wonderful heart for all people.

And all five of us belong to these two wonderful people! Jeff and Eugenie Lilley!

So let the fun begin!
<3 Emily
