This is an oldie....but it reminds me of the choice young men I'm raising..... ;)

"Take me to your leader"

Thought for the day.........

Crew: "Mom, do I have to go to primary class?"

Me: as I'm walking him down the hall to his class, "Yep! It'll be great!"

Crew: "I"m so not happy with you right now."

It's nice to know my parenting skills are really paying off.......he expressed his thoughts in a calm and rational manner......so proud! ......HaHa


BTW...he took this photo himself off the computer.....not sure what's going on with the arm outta the sleeve.....he's gettin serious I guess :)

HAPPY 5TH CREW!.....Never mind that it was almost 2 months ago....


Crew: "Now that I'm bigger, I think I'll have a race track cake"....
Me: "Oh really, l guess I'll have to go online and figure out how to do that"....
Crew: "Well, what are you waiting for?"

He's a boy that likes to get things done....haha


Always ready and willing for a picture pose....pretty sure that's genetic.....I'm not naming names.... Jami, Kara :)

The only one who has a smile in the morning and is ready for the day......the one that doesn't even need to get up
BTW....this is the epitome of Cade in the morning...haha


"Crew, really??, I'm trying to read the paper"


"Alright one picture, since I look sooo good with my stretched out neck shirt trying to show off my chest"

Pictures found I forgot to blog....yea...since I haven't taken pics for awhile....I'm such a documenter...:)


ZOOLANDER has nothing on Cole

Mac knows how to kick it for sure!
This is such a Kai picture
of course the kids ALWAYS have to visit the Rocky Point fancy "seaworld".....
hey we're all about supporting
If I slap your backs....you'll stay that way

HO HO HO........

I'm pretty sure it only takes one to light the firework.....good job guys ...way to get it done! ;)


His face says it all...."yea mom, Santa knew I was getting bigger so I could ride the big bike"


This kid has already mastered the I'm too cute to get mad at look....we're in big trouble!


Caden scored big on the gift exchange this year!!

MAUI, HAWAII:


That water looks so tempting to dive into....too bad if I did, I would probably meet my demise against the rocks.....Beautiful though!!

Wait....did he want ME to pose for the pic or the girl in the background..... ;)

I'm still not certain what possessed anyone to make this sign.....I guess people have to worry about something.....maybe stacking the rocks would ruin their whole ecosystem...so what did we do?....stack the rocks of course!

I know it doesn't look high, but standing on this ledge made me super dizzy......yea...I'm just a tiny bit afraid of heights :)

this one's for the kids...they wanted to know if we saw any whales......we did....in the form of bones....cause of course we missed the "season" of them by 2 weeks

BEFORE


AFTER
minus a little something up front...still as cute as ever ;)


And this is exhibit A of why I ordered a new camera: potentially cute pictures ruined

SIDE NOTE: Holy Batman...look at all that drool

Rocky Point for Fall break: Doesn't get much better than this for my kids! Seriously...Clay was having a good time despite his face in this picture ;)


Mr. "change my clothes everyday 2 minutes" stopped his crab hunting for a quick photo

Attempting to use the trampoline in the ocean for "jumping"....more like who can stay on without being thrown off..

I tryed to get everyone in the pic for the sunset......it's like herding cats.....so this will do..the bookends of the kids

There's not much to say.......

All in all.........GOOD TIMES!!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLAYTON AND CADEN:


First off, let's start with Caden getting baptized.....this is what family photos have turned into.....at least half of us are looking at the camera...good job! It was a great day!

PARTY! Let's have cake, swim, open presents, eat, and .......

Ride a bull.....Yippee! Only problem with this party was me not being able to get on that bull.....I didn't want to hurt the bull with by boot ;)

Never enough boys at my house.....this is what they did when I told them to smile.....yea that's perfect...

"No one puts baby in the corner"....

sheesh he was just happy to be outside with the boys

Monday, September 13, 2010

This is what happens when Clayton gets bored....first the whining.... and then he resorts to projects like making headphones out of pipecleaners...I'm pretty sure he needs more chores to keep him "busy"......



He just makes me smile!......this is where you usually find him.....cause it's usually where you find me....in the kitchen...


After a loong ong awaited first day of preschool......he's all smiles! (of course he thinks he's too "old" for his school......"besides Mom I know how to spell my name and color really nice")


Monday, August 30, 2010

He cracks me up....everytime I change him...he'll just sit and laugh at me....ok...so...I admit it...the "squishier" belly and countless hours in the gym and denial of scrumptious treats is all worth it....
I needed a new challenge anyway..
Oh and a broken foot makes it even more challenging....bring it!

Yes, I broke my foot at a "self-defense" class......I get the irony...yes, I do

Crew and Cash were up late.......so this is their "first day of school" shot....it's just me and you boys!

Yes, this is the closest I came to smiles from my sweet older boys....whataya gonna do! What cracks me up is how sweet Caden looks in this pic and how things can go so horribly wrong within 2 seconds.......look to next photo......




I'm looking into getting Cash some fitness and diet training for that serious double chin......:)

He's into standing while I hold him so let's give this a try....he so wants to be doing what the older boys are doing......growing up too fast!


Crew (while crying): "Mom, These bubbles need to go away....this is not what I wanted!"


I had to put this pic in.....cause look at Cash's face....it's like he's saying, "Mom, really?!"


Tuesday, July 13, 2010

This is what Cash thought of the following video......seriously the Just Dance Wii game is so fun!

My boys always think they can beat me.....no way..... ;)

Paul's parents rented a beach house in San Diego.....I opted out since I'd just had Cash (thinking I'd have a nice quiet week).....but it turns out I was bored! No one to cook and clean for, I didn't have to break up any fights, no friends, no "bathtime", tickling backs at bedtime (of course I'm talking about the kids).......

MORAL OF THE STORY.....even though I complain about the "everyday" stuff sometimes......that's actually what makes me happy......go figure


The phenomenon of digging a hole in the sand seems to be the activity of choice at the beach for my kids
