Random pictures

I can't wait to get all three of them dressed up. Peyton dressed as Thumper.
He loved having this costume on.
Isa wanted to show off the new hairbows that Auntie got for her. Aren't they adorable.

Unusually Quiet.....

For a Monday that is. My sweet niece has an ear that is bothering her and is at home with her mama today. I am amazed at how much that little girl can affect the noise level in my house. It is to quiet for a Monday. I will enjoy my day off though. See you tomorrow Isa and Kai.

Snapshot Saturday

Picture Perfect

It has been awhile since the picture people place in the mall shut down. I was so sad. We had gotten so many free pictures of the boys (Michael and Casey) Thanks to all of their wonderful coupons. The only pictures I bought were at Christmas. No one else in town had deals like them. As I was walking through the mall yesterday I saw a new business, Picture Perfect. So, when I got home I checked them out online. I have a feeling they won't last. With a $20 sitting fee and prints starting at $30 I know that they won't be getting my business. Unless they come out with a fabulous coupon.

Hard to believe they are 11 months apart

Isa has been surpassed by her little cousin Peyton in weight. Peyton went to the doctor last night b/c I noticed some blood in his diaper area. Turned out to be only a small open would and were prescribed some oinment. Little Peyton got weighed and is 24 lbs 5.5 oz, that is 2.5 oz bigger then Isa. I can't believe it. :o)

Michael " Daddy, who made the apples?"

Daddy "God."

Later that night (in the car with mommy and casey)

Michael "Mommy, who made the sky?"

Mommy "God."

Casey "He made the apples, too!!"

Done working on 4 (no I'm not pregnant)

Now on to 5 and 6. My usually happy baby has been rather grumpy and irritable lately. I now understand why. My child who waited until a day before his first birthday to get a tooth, is now getting the all at once. Last week number 4 came in. Well, I got a glimpse into his cute little mouth and can see two more teeth getting ready to break through the top. Thank goodness for tylenol. I had a picture I wish I could put on but it on Brian's camera (not the best quality). So I'll give you the story. On Saturday our church had an all day scrapbooking crop. It was great. I got a lot done and even got to take a class. I made some adorable magnets. Brian stayed home with the boys. Peyton has been fascinated with the drawer under the oven, so what did he do?? The little booger climbed in it and just stood there. Brian didn't have time to grab the actual camera. It is adorable.

This is my niece Emma, picture taken June of 08. She is a hard one to get smiles out of, so I was happy to see that I captured this one. And, she is wearing the dress I gave her :o)

Warning: May cause upset stomach

Don't worry Nicole, I am on to you. I know you told Kai to save it for Auntie. Just when I thought everything was going so well. Peyton went down for his morning nap, Isa is playing nicely by herself, Michael and Casey are at Grandma Cindy's, Kai slept to 10:15.Then he had to go and do this. I thought I smelled something when I picked him up.

The resulting product, suprisingly his diaper was fairly clean :o)
The Shirt
The overalls
The result: 1 clean and happy baby. Now off to find him some clothes, put his dirty clothes in the wash so they don't stain and to feed the little guy.

I Cannot Believe It

I am a little frustrated with the government in Washington State. They banned the type of detergent that I can use in my dishwasher. Right now it is only in Whatcom County but will be statewide in 2010. It bugs me that they can regulate something like that. Eco friendly is the only thing I can use, let me tell you. It doesn't work. I bought some and it didn't work. I will be driving south and stocking up in Skagit County. What I don't get is that the ready tabs (that contains more of the chemical they are banning) is still available because for some reason it doesn't have as great of an impact. I just don't get it.

Big Boy Shoes

Peyton got these the other day. They are a pair of New Balance tennis shoes. I got them for 9.99 at Fred Meyer. I couldn't believe the deal.
He really enjoys wearing them. He will go get them in the morning and ask us to put them on him (in not so many words)

Happy First Birthday Alethea

We just wanted to wish you a happy first birthday. Have your sissies give you lot of hugs and kisses from Michael, Casey and Peyton. Have a wonderful day.
Love you all
Brian, Heather, Michael, Casey and Peyton

Are they really 352 days apart?

Because of Kai's size I am finding it hard to believe that he is 352 days younger then Peyton.
Peyton was having fun playing with Caseys Cowboy hat yesterday. Isn't he adorable?

Working on Number 4

Just before Peyton's first birthday he got his first tooth. I thought they were never going to come in. Michael and Casey both got their teeth a lot earlier. Now at 15 and a half months he has gottne tooth number three and tooth number wil lbreak through the gums any day now. As I can see another thin white line. I was afraid they would all start coming in at once.
See the thin white line, that is tooth number 3 and he is working on the one just to the other side.
You can just barely see the top tooth, Peyton is trying to blow on my face, that's what I was doing to get him to smile :o)
He is a cutie pie.

One Happy Lady Here

A gift from one of my favorite nieces (I do have two of them, can't play favorites). Makes every morning go smoother. Thanks for the Irish Cream Mocha (delicious)
Isa likes her chair that her mama brought for her. It put her right up to the table. Everyone is eating breakfast peacefully.
Peyton enjoying his breakfast, banana and a pediasure. Gotta keep that weight on this little man. Just need to figure out a way for steady growth and not a pound a month ;o)
Today is starting out much better. One small incident but it was quickly resolved. Little kids should not be able to open the fridge. Luckily Auntie was right on top of it. I explained to Casey that Sausage Patties are not cookies and Isa knows that we don't drink Lime Juice. I am trying to teach Isa that just because Casey wants to jump off a bridge doesn't mean she has to.

Whenever i am talking on my cell phone Isa always assumes that is MeeMaw and she is usually always right. She like to talk ot her meemaw and it must have been a very serious conversation.


I don't think the kids have anymore boundaries that they can push. I think I have done them all. Staying out of my room and not pushing Peyton anymore. I think I have dealt with it all and have been pushed to my limits, we are almost beyond what this Mama/Auntie can handle. Hope everyone is having a better week. Maybe I'll get around to some pictures later this week. If things calm down it will happen.

It was so much fun being able to spend the day with my youngest boy. I loved watching him react to all the differnet animals.

Peyton loves to give his cousin Kai hugs and kisses.

Chunk Monkey and Ms. Isa

As tiring as it can get, I am enjoying having these two extra kiddos in the house. Michael is having a hard time understanding why Auntie goes to work. I can not get over how chunky this little boy is. Kai is only three months old. Look at those legs.
As soon as I point the camera at Ms. Isa this is the face I get. Go figure she wouldn't stick that tongue back in her mouth.

Isa loves her animals and know all the sounds they make.

Orses Auntie

The kids and I headed to Hovander Park this morning to meet up with some our friends for play time. I didn't dare take the camera (didn't need one more thing to worry about). We had a lot of fun. Isa loved all the animals and Michael enjoyed having time to run around with his friends. We even went up into the big tower. Michael climbed it and I had Isa in the Ergo carrier. The little ones stayed with my friend Heather. This is the conversation from the back seat on the way home.

Isa: Orses neigh, gook Auntie. Cows moo, sheep, orses, Auntie gook.
