We had a fun little weekend. Nothing too exciting; it was great to just hang out the the family.
Here is Jackson working on "Dad's truck". He is so cute!!

Here is Taylor with both of his younger brothers. Don't worry; they didn't try riding that way!!

Then Taylor and Sammy on the "Wave". (is that what it is called?) They didn't last long on that before falling off. :)

These three pictures were taken on Sunday. We went up to my in-laws, as usual, and had a great time catching up with them. We took the kids on a walk; which they had been begging to do. (Thanks for going with us Grandma!) It actually worked really well with all 3 in the wagon. I wouldn't be able to go for long walks that way, but at least it worked.

It's a LUAU!!

We celebrated Kenadee's 4th birthday yesterday! It was probably more for me than for her; but she did have a lot of fun. She was so excited to finally have her party and to have her cousins and friends come over. I can't believe how grown up she is becoming; she looks so much older. Time really does fly by. She is our sweet girl and so thoughtful!!! We love you Kenadee!!!

Dee Dee and her birthday cake!!
Cute birthday kids. We had to wake Jackson up from his nap and he waasn't thrilled about wearing the lei.
Me and my new boyfriend. Notice the festive sea shells!! Or according the my sister-in-law the "B" shells. That was a good laugh!!!
Yes, we are crazy!! 16 kids (Fisher was napping) in our little house. On top of that there were 12 adults. If anyone knows how little our living room is....WOW!!

Finally nice weather!!

Yeah for warm weather. It was 80 degrees this last Monday so we made some lunches and met Annie and baby Jane at the park. It was so nice to feel the warmth of the sun!! We could have stayed all day. The crazy part is that the next day we had snow flurries... at least we had a glimps that spring is on the way!!

Sorry for the random belly picture.... there is a purpose...The boys are wearing te same shirt in this pictures and the one above. Fisher would be born in 5 days in the pregnant picture and Fisher is 7 months old in the top picture. I was curious about their sizes so I measured... Jackson's waist is 17" and thighs 11". Fisher's waist is 18" and thighs 10". At 6 months Jackson was 13.5# and Fisher 17.3# with only .5 inches different in height. Yes, Jackson is pretty small for his age in about the 5%. Fisher is in the 45%. So Fisher isn't THAT big for his age. He is obviously BIG for one of my babies.
Curently Jackson wears 2T and that is pretty baggy; I am betting that by Fisher's birthday he and his brother will be wearing the same size.

We met the Grahams at Kangaroo Zoo last Monday. Our kids had never been there and they had a blast!! I highly recommend taking your family! They have tons of blow up slides ect.. of all sizes. Seriously it is so much fun, even for adults!

Jackson was the wild, crazy one. Going face first, backwards face first... He loved it!! He had a bright red face the last hour.
Fisher has the cutest gummy grin! The room lights up when he smiles. It is very contagious!!
Our kds hadn't hung out for a really long time but they totally remember each other and Kenadee kept saying, "Gracie, I've been looking all over for you!!" They kept climbing up the big slides together then waiting for Jack to catch up so they could all slide down together... when Jack would reach the top he wouldn't even pause for a second before sliding down all by himself, leaving the girls at the top. So the two girls would slide down holding hands. Good idea, Heather.... thanks for inviting us!!!

Happy 50th Jeri!

We celebrated Taylor's Mom's birthday this last week!! It was really fun and Jeri was surprised... so mission accomplished! There were some good jokes as you could probably imagine! But all joking aside I am so grateful to have such a wonderful mother-in-law. She has blessed my life as well as my kids' lives. She is very thoughful, genourous, and is also a great example to our family. Happy Birthday!! We love you, Jeri.

My boys

I think the boys look alike in many ways, and people keep telling me they think so also. So here is a picture of both boys sleeping... who do you think is who?
