I am so proud of Camden. He basically put this whole set together all by himself. He worked so hard on it all day and finished it. He said that his goal was to put it all together in one day and he met that goal. This is the biggest set he has ever put together and the fact that he did it just proves that he is growing up. I do not know if I like that. I miss having babies. But so very proud of my lil Peanut. Here is the front view of the police station This... Continue reading

Well, the boys woke up at 4:45 but we made them stay in their room till 6:30. I know, cruel right? But 4:45 is a tad on the early side when we have a lot to accomplish this day. Here are some of their favorite presents from Santa.... Here they are ready to dive into the gifts.... Camden with his super hero pop up book-the boy is obsessed. Bay with his Angry Birds shirt Cam with his Green Lantern mask and ring Bay with his Mario Bros gloves and hat CAm with some action figues Bays Mario and Luigi slippers... Continue reading

We went to mom and dads house for Christmas eve day. It was kind of a play it by ear thing knowing that Kacy could go into labor at any minute but we were able to enjoy some time visiting family and friends. It was us, mom and dad, Kalie, Nate, Suree, Papa, Sue and Patty Ballard. Such a nice and relaxing time. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and ofcourse the view from their deck is stunning. Camden is making Suree giggle. She loved watching him (and football). Cousins.... Christmas feast.... Camden is sad because his rib is almost gone... Continue reading

We got the furry babies all dressed up for the holidays. Bay and his buddy Zion Katie from the back and from the front and Zions usual pose Camden and Katie Their outfits were quite the hit with the boys. They were quite entertaining. Zion loved his but I think Katie got too warm and right after tucking the boys in for the night, Katie jumped off their bed and threw up. Petty gross but she was fine after I took off her dress.

I think mine. I have been married to my best friend for over 15 years and love him now more than ever. My parents have been such great examples for us that it makes it easy to be married to my best friend. As long as you treat each other the way you want to be treated, you will always strive to put the other ones needs in front of your own.

The boys decorated sugar cookies and made quite the mess. But they look great and taste awesome. It only took 20 minutes to clean up the aftermath. Here are a few pics..... Here are Bay's first half-totally original And here are Cams batch. I cannot even describe where frosting and food coloring ended up. lets just say I will probably be doing the last batch of frosting all by myself. Continue reading

The kids have been dying to decorate their gingerbread houses this year. I think next year we will try making one from scratch. At the end, not only were the kids fingers and faces messy but somehow the dogs faces had frosting on them. So without further ado, here they are... Here is Cam deep in concentration. Here is Bay focusing very hard on his mad decorating skills I think they did a really great job.. Now they cannot wait to eat them. Continue reading

Well, since we still have not heard from our rental company about getting the fence fixed, our neighbor took matters into his own hands and started fixing the fence this last sunday. Dave saw him out there and him and the boys went out to help. Considering we have kids and dogs and have been complaining about the fence since the day we moved in, it seems like they would want to fix it but apparantly not. We are still waiting for our microwave to be fixed and that happened around November 3rd.So since I was in my jammies, I... Continue reading

This last week we have been studying New York for our state of the week. So, what better way to celebrate than to eat New York style pizza so off to Sbarros at the mall we went. Camden said this was his favorite kind of pizza. BAy really liked it too. Its pizza so ofcourse Dave likes it. He finished his off plus the rest of all of ours I felt like I was betraying Me N Eds-my all time favorite. But all in all, I think the kiddos had a good time studying New York-especially when you get to... Continue reading

This last week, Cam has been complaining that his heart hurt. He said it felt like a side ache in his heart. And on monday, I actually watched him double over drawing in a deep breath and lots of pain on his face. Well, I thought maybe it was something he ate. Then it happened again and again over the next several days. SO knowing that heart issues seem to run in the family, I called and scheduled an appointment with his dr.Dr. Vazquez examined him and then said it could be muscular-where the muscle gets stuck on the rib....

Today (December 6th), we celebrated something very special. I cannot believe its been two years. Two years ago Dave and I were sitting on the couch with them as they were eagerly asking questions about asking Jesus into their hearts. I have heard from their VBS teachers that they might have accepted Christ but they wanted to do it again-to make sure. I remember doing the same exact thing as a kid. Just do it one more time to make sure it stuck. I remember each boy repeating whatever Dave said and what was in their hearts and crying tears... Continue reading

For advent today, we talked about the promise God made to his people, the Rainbow. So I had made rainbow jello the night before. Let me tell you, its not hard to make at all ,just very time consuming. Here are a few shots of the yummy goodness. Dave and I ofcourse ate our whole glass of rainbow. Bay only likes the red and Camden likes it but couldnt finish. I love homeschooling. Where else can you learn in pj's? Continue reading

This morning (December 1st), after waiting almost 20 years, I got Lasik. It was so cool. The boys and Dave got to actually watch and take some pics. I was a little nervous so they gave me a valium (yeah!!!). It actually did not hurt but when they put the device down to cut the flap on the eyeball, it felt like they were squeezing my eyeball (tons of pressure). SO worth it. Here are a few pics the boys took.... SO here I am lying down while the dr. is starting to administer the numbing drops. I just remember... Continue reading

So we get home from my lasik procedure and the wind is blowing like crazy. We have been bugging the management group from when we moved that the fence needed to be fixed. I am just so thankful the boys weren't outside when it happened or the dogs werent outside cause they would have freaked out and taken off. Considering my eyes were covered from the procedure, I would not have been able to chase them. But the wind did end up taking down a portion of the fence right behind us and a big portion that leads into our... Continue reading

Holding up with tradition, we got our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. But we did not go to Cobb Ranch. We tried last year but it was very different. They do not even grow thewir own trees anymore and there were a ton of weird to do's out there. Way too commercial so we skipped it and ended up getting a pretty good tree for a great price at OSH. And like tradition, we had our hot chocolates and powdered donuts as a snack while we decorated the tree. Dave's job was to set the tree up inside and... Continue reading

So we have been watching Sand Masters-which by the way the boys absolutely love. I think our favorite episode was when they went to Legoland and made a Star Wars sculpture. So they decided to try it themselves. I think they think it is summer time instead of winter time where the high was 54 today. But, they were so excited and full of energy so out they went to create their work of art. I know its hard to tell but here is their design. It is a picture of the Muppets. They were so proud of themselves and... Continue reading

The boys had their first choir concert November 17th. It was absolutely adorable. They both looked stunning. Such gentlemen. They worked so hard on memorizing their songs and remembering to keep their hands at their side during the performance. Dave got to come so they were very excited. I cannot wait to get the dvd.... Cannot wait Continue reading

Camden wanted to make pancakes this morning all by himself-and he almost did. He knows all the ingrediants that go into making them and he even knows some of the measurements. He basically made these 95% all by himself. I love that he wants to learn how to cook or clean or do things around the house. The other day he made lunch for him and brother (PB & J sandwiches, crackers, applesauce and a cookie). He tries so hard and he doesnt give up. He has now graduated to putting the clothes in the dryer, cleaning the dryer trap,... Continue reading

Ok, we are "those kind of people" that apparantly dress up our dogs. I guess we just love them so that we wanted them to have a good trick or treat also. Well, our night did not turn out quite as I imagined it. I was hoping to get a really good picture of the boys with the pups in all their costumes but this was the best one I got. Zion did not like it on his head and Katie just wanted to bite the wings off. So here is Bailey in his War Machine costume and Zion as... Continue reading

I had won tickets to the Spooktacular halloween celebration at Storyland so after our fun time at Playland the boys changed into their costumes and we headed over. Very thankful I did not buy the tickets-we were inline for over 45 minutes adn then when we got inside it was incredibly crowded-lines to everything. The boys did enjoy getting candy but we ended up not staying too long-just was not worth it. Since it was Cam's birthday dinner, he requested we go to Chili's-he wanted ribs in a bad way. So off to Chili's we went. So here is the... Continue reading

I cannot believe my youngest is 8 years old already. Happy birthday my lil Peanut!!! It seems like just yesterday I was changing diapers and making bottles. But that was 8 years ago.It is weird to know that this is the last of my babies. I would have loved one more-boy or girl but that was not in the cards. I know that God has a reason for that (which someday I would love to ask Him). I used to think that it was all my fault, that I was not the best momma but I know that isnt true.... Continue reading
