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

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?!"

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

Happy Big 12 Cole...so many fun things happening....young men's activities, boy scout outings, camp Geronimo, passing the sacrament, the beginning of the teenager hormones in action....it's all fun times around here! We love our Cole....he's a really fabulous babysitter!



I wasn't able to get one with them doing a serious smile.....we make it work

This is how I feel my life is running these days.....crazy and moving in all different directions!...wouldn't have it any other way

And then there's the little guy who just chills in his chair when he's not being held.....this...I'm sure.... will not last for long ;) Pretty soon he'll be up and running just like the rest of them..

Yes, I'm pretty certain it's noon and they're both still in their pajamas.....but whatever!...I'm still in stretchy elastic pants.....who's worried?!

ANOTHER UPDATE:


Here's the old man chillin with his homie.....


Cash looks a little "out of it" but I guess that's what happens when you spike his drink..;)

The first and the last....knock on wood....I better watch myself, since I said that after Crew too!
Oh but what would we be without this little nugget?!


Oh the accomplishments...you go boy! My little star


That's my guy.....ALL BUSINESS!...That's just how he rolls....


Thursday, May 6, 2010

For those of you who didn't know yet....Cash made his appearance.......2 weeks ago....I've just been sooo busy with all the napping, eating, sitting on the couch, watching t.v., walking aimlessly around the house to even have time to post any pics! It's been rough ;)



Yep, there's me in my hospital glory with the fab 5....


Just chillin

Here's giggly boy......no, he's not naked...he does have his underoos on....
that's Paul's arm

Here's Cash...wondering at that moment if he came home to the right family.....what cracks me up is Clay's skull pants and Crew's one eye in the background

Welcome Cash.....home of the "crazies"....it's going to be GREAT!
