{ on rainy days }

We make cupcakes!

The boys and their cousins decided they wanted to make some pretty sweet Alien cupcakes. By the time I got to take any pictures, they were a little melty, but they really did turn out pretty cool!

We were going to take them to Ko's neighbor friends and to some cousins, but they ALL got dropped! So instead we just ate them all ourselves :)!

BiRtHdAy BoYs!

Both of our
Little Monsters
had birthdays this month!

{ kohen }

Kohen turned 3 on May 3rd.
Wow! Time flies!
I remember the day we brought him home
like it was yesterday!
I'll be honest
and say that I am a little sad
to see my baby grow up so fast!


* weight... 32.19 lbs. (54%)
* height... 3 ft. 2 in. (67%)

We celebrated Ko's birthday with his
his cousins, aunts & uncles, & grandparents

...favorite presents...

...the cake...

(I think he was more excited about his cake than anything!)

{ landon }

Landon turned 1 on May 20th.
It seems like he should only be 6 months old!
This last year has gone by
way too fast!
He is getting to be such a big boy!
He has started to walk, and he can say mama, dada and bye!
I love watching the boys interact with eachother! Landon LOVES his big brother!

* weight... 21.6 lbs. (30%)...WHAT?!
* height... 29.3 in. (32%)

We celebrated Ko and Lando's Birthday
this last weekend with friends and family.
We had a BBQ at our house.

It was a bit CRAZY
so many people
so disorganized
so many distractions!
I think we might celebrate their birthdays seperately from now on :)!

... the cake ...

... Lando's reaction when we sang Happy Birthday to him ...

... the DEVOWERING (sp?) of the cake ...

... favorite present ...

He LOVES RC from Toy Story! That was pretty much the only thing he was even interested in!

THANKS to EVERYONE that helped celebrate our boys' birthdays! You helped make it very special!

{ friends }

Kohen has discovered something new
ever since we moved into our new house.....


He asks me every day if he can go play with
his 'neighbor friends'.

They ride bikes together,
play out in the dirt with their tractors,
eat popsicles,
and ride on the big tractor with dad!

{ this guy...}

...can't go a day without bumping his little ( or should I say RATHER LARGE) noggin on something! I think this one is the worst yet! He hit the tile so hard, it shook the whole house!

STiLL aLiVe....

Yes, we are still alive! I've done a horrible job at keeping up on blogging over the last few months, but things around here have finally calmed down, and it is a goal of mine to keep up on blogging/journal entries this year! Our family has a lot to update on, so beware that this might be a fairly long post!

One of the most exciting things is that we finally moved into our house! We've been here for a little over a month, and we are loving it! The boys are finally back on a regular schedule, and we all feel at home! Dustin can't wait to get started on our yard...he's like a little kid on Christmas day when it comes to that sort of stuff!

It's official! Kohen is POTTY TRAINED!!! We are still working on being dry in the morning, but 90% of the time he wakes up dry! Can I just tell you what a relief it was when I didn't have to buy diapers for him anymore?!

Ko will be turning 3 in May! I can't believe he will be 3 years old! He's grown up so much over the last few months and it almost makes me a little sad that he is no longer my baby. He is my little Snuggle Bug, and his dad's Best Buddy! His obsessions are:
*Fire trucks, Trains and Tractors
*Going to Costco
*Not listening to his mom and dad
*Making train tracks out of pillows :),
*Loving on his brother
Oh and he will FINALLY watch t.v.! He's never cared too much for tv, but lately he loves to watch Mickey, Thomas, Handy Manny and Toy Story.
He is also sleeping in a BIG BOY BED! Ko was so excited to move into our house because he knew that he was going to get a big boy bed! He absolutely loves it, and so far (knock on wood) we really haven't had a problem with him getting out of his bed at night!

Landon is my little Chubster! At just over 9 months, he weighs a whopping 19 pounds! When he smiles, his face looks like it is going to explode...I LOVE it! I love to squeeze his face and his squishy bum!

Landon will be a year old in May! I can't believe how quickly these last nine months have gone! He is definately a lot different than Ko. When I was pregnant with Landon I had a feeling that he was going to be a little monster compared to Ko...and I was somewhat right! He was about 8 months old before he started sleeping through the night. In fact the first time he really slept through the night was the first night we were in our new house! He is a little tempermental and quite needy...oh and did I mention that he is a total mama's boy? His obsessions are:

*Crawling! (he's been on the move for about 2 weeks)

*Drinking out of sippy cups


*Playing with his brother

*Tub Time

*Clapping and waving

Did I mention that these two together are CRAZY?! They definately give us a run for our money! These two totally have a Love/Hate relationship! Every morning Ko and I go in Landon's room to get him out of bed and Landon immediately looks for Ko and just starts giggling! But about 2 minutes later Ko won't let him play with his toys or Ko shoves him away and poor Lando is crying! Then at breakfast time Kohen just HAS to bring Landon's high chair right next to his chair so they can eat breakfast together. They sit there and laugh at eachother all during breakfast. Then about 2 minutes later they are back to the same thing....Landon is crying cause Ko won't let him even look at his toys! And it just goes on and on until the day is done!

As far as an update on Dustin and I....

Dustin still works for Union Pacific, but he is really excited to hopefully get a lot more landscaping jobs this year. So if any of you need some landscaping done, you know who to call!

I am still working part time, trying to get back into shape, and taking care of my 3 guys!

Happy Valentine's Day!

You are the strength that keeps me walking,

You are the hope that keeps me trusting.

You are the light to my soul.

You are my're everything.

How can I stand here with you, and not be moved by you?

Would you tell me how it could be any better than this?
