Savana's class put on a Reader's Theatre.  She did such a wonderful job.  I love watching her perform, it is something she truly thrives doing.  Thanks for inviting us sweetie!

He's obsessed.  Between all the games he watches his Dad and brother play, constantly insisting on watching a recorded show of bowling on TV, and flipping through the pages of sports equipment magazines, I would say he is officially obsessed!!

New Tricks

Things are moving along.....
What a big girl YOU are becoming.  It's your turn to try new things.  Sitting in a high chair was one of them.  You didn't mind it one bit!
Then on to bigger and better things.....standing up!

Sweet Sweet Baby

I had to do it.  I couldn't take those big puppy eyes staring me down as I was enjoying every little bit of my red vines.  I secured her in a nice safe area and slapped on a bib.  She LOVED the licorice....Couldn't get enough!
and the eyelashes....ohhh, the eyelashes!!

Take Note

Alright, my boys.  Take note.  Your Daddy is an awful thoughtful person.  He makes sure we always have everything we need to be taken care of.  He's a very responsible guy and so in turn, he's a very busy guy.  Mommy was born and raised in the great state of Utah!  I had multiple chances to go skiing, but never acted upon it!  Way back when, when none of you were even born yet, Daddy took Mommy to go buy some skis and ski boots.  Daddy was an avid skier when he was in high school.  It was something he rather enjoyed.  So, this was something we were going to try to do together.  Well, as luck would have it, we bought the skis when Mommy was pregnant with Scottie.  We figured I'd get to ski next season.  The snow comes every year.  Well, that didn't happen.  Year after year went by.  Baby after baby came.  Workday after workday came and went.  Life got in the way.  Mommy and Daddy were busy....being a Mommy and a Daddy.  Finally, Daddy devised a plan.  He surprised Mommy with a day long date to the ski resort.  He thought I was going to hate it.  I didn't.  He thought I was going to be miserable.  I wasn't.  I had a blast.  It was hard work and it took a lot of courage, but your Daddy stayed by my side the whole time and cheered me on.  He taught me all I needed to know and watched me give it my best.  We had a lot of fun.  So, moral of the story....boys, follow your Dad's example in everything he does.  He's such a great guy and we're lucky to have him!
Thank you, Scott.  For being so thoughtful by taking me, and being so caring to stay by my side.  Love you!

Funny story, when we got to the resort, we pulled out the gear to change in the parking lot.  Daddy discovered he got the wrong pants.  Well, he had no other choice, but to wear them.  They were a few sizes too small and wouldn't button up, but he made them work anyway.  I got a good giggle out of that ;)

Movin' on

We decided to finally try Lincoln out in a big boy chair!  He's been climbing up on the stools and wanting to eat his meal up there with the big kids for quite awhile now.  He did wonderful.  He was so cute I just had to snap a few!!

Birthday Boy!

It's quite fun having both mine and Scott's birthday's around the holidays.  Seems like there's non stop celebrations for months!  We did our traditional birthday dinner accompanied by family along with some yummy chocolate cake and ice cream.  Man, he sure gets more and more handsome with every year he acquires!  Happy Birthday, my love!!

Ari & Roman!

Furry Friend

When Lincoln can get a hold of Koda, he never wants to let him go! I'm not sure how much Koda appreciates the cuddles.  He knows how to get the best of Lincoln though....give him lots of kisses!


We let Brooklyn have her first go in the walker.  She enjoyed it, for a minute.  And probably because we loaded it up with cheerios!

 Alright, Mom....that's about enough!!

Nine Months!

Nine months old.... She's just too lovely! I can't believe how beautiful she is! With every day that passes she gets more and more fun.  I love watching all these changes happening within her! 

Her accomplishments are....
  Standing on her own
  Sleeping all through the night
  Discovering music and dancing
  Loving fruit loops

 This is your stuffed kitty cat.  You LOVE her!! We actually have two that are the exact the same, but one that is smaller.  You squeeze her and kiss her and don't want to let her go!
