mE n' tHe KiDdO's

I guess I am never really in any of the pictures with the kids. I thought I should change that! I also have no idea what is on Natalie's face..... ugh!

Everybody SQUEEZE!

People say that Graden and I look so much alike. I don't really see it. I guess I kind of do in this picture. Our eyes are almost the EXACT same color of hazel. Brown around the pupil and green around the outside. The girls eyes are like chocolate. Jason is still the outsider with his crytsal blues!

Say ChEeSe! I love my sweet boy! I will be sad when his teeth grow in! I adore all the gaps! It's hillarious when he smiles!

In Limbo~

Limbo???? I am in a weird place right now! I thought that leaving work and coming home would be easy. I thought that the transition back to stay at home miracle worker would just be like riding a bike! Well guess what? I have been home for about 4 weeks and I am not in any sort of groove. My house is still not clean, the laundry still piles up before my eyes, the kids are still getting used to me being home, the routine is not set, and sometimes I feel out of place. In my own home none the less. In my mind I guess I thought I would just walk back into this Bree Vandacamp kind of life. Not so much! The old part of me is so used to going going going, that I feel like I am still spinning. Before I know it my kids are going to be in school all day and I will look back and regret not making the most of them at my feet or in my shadow.

This "Brock Hawk" is for my friend! A special shout out!

These are our other family members......Tucker(red), and Cody(black)! I feel bad that everybody else gets "blog" time, minus them!

They are soo wierd!

We have had Tucker for 2 years. He is a good boy. Protective, excitable, fun, HUGE, and really pretty. When we lived in Nampa he used to dig a ton and I wanted to KILL him. Not so much now. (After the snip snip) :) He is a good boy! One time we went on a family bike ride and all of a sudden I could hear a dog running behind us...(I have a fear of being out with the kids and being attacked by a Pit Bull)... I turned around and it was Tucker! We were not by the house either! He jumped the 8 foot fence and followed the squeels of our girls I guess! Not that you could miss the scratching sound of the double training wheels!

Cody was an impulse thing on my part! I saw a flyer at Albertson's for a free puppy and called that very second! I picked him up that night! Jason was like "what the H*ll!" Cody has turned out to be a great little dog! We are not sure what he is mixed with, but he has not gotten bigger in months! So..... we hope this is it!

I look out the back window and they are always together! Cody is drapped on Tucker! Wierd muts! :)

These are just a few Sunday pictures! Graden and I stayed home sick and Jason took the girls to Sacrament! Their program was today and I was sooo sad to miss it! I felt like crap and did not want to get ready for church to sit there and feel like I would have looked! I am kind of glad Jason was able to share that with the girls! He said they did an AWESOME job! They knew all the words to the songs, did great on their lines, and smiled at him the WHOLE time! Before he knows it, they will be all grown up! I think that really hit him today! He IS a GREAT Pappa!

We had a great Halloween! And you?

A very Bewitching Halloween this year!
Here is my entorage of pics! (and some jason took ;)
My favorite part of Halloween this year was the way my kids behaved! Graden is a stinken slow poke! He just chilled at each person's house, waved, talked to their animals, waved again, and finally Jason would snatch him up and take him to the next house! But the really cute part was when the girls would get to the house way before Graden they would kindly tell the person that they have a cowboy brother with a hat and boots that is a little behind them. They were so concerned about him being included. It's that kind of thing that warms a mothers heart!

Angels in the back seat?


Scary Angel?

We took Graden's cowboy shirt off during lunch and he went on the run as we walked to the car! I think the wranglers, boots, and big belt really make him feel like a true cowters!

This fine young Clark Kent is my dear sweet BFF Brock! We became friends at the State St. branch! We went down to see them and to show our adorable kids off! We missed Jenn and forgot to snap a picture of Andie! My other BFF!

This is my old friend Isaac! I actually trained him at Key Bank and now he is all grown up! (sigh) :) Great costume Choulis!

Sparkles all around!


Fixin' the buckle! But we can't fix his mood!
