Happy Birthday CasMan

These pictures are backwards from what I wanted, oh well. I find it hard to believe that is has been 4 years since we welcomed this little boy into our family. My how the time flies.
Casey is the clown in our family. He has a smile on his face and knows how to make you laugh. He loves to play with his Daddy and his brothers. Isn't to excited about the new sibling growing in Mommy's belly, he asked me to grow a puppy :o)
We love you Casey Leonard!!
Welcom little one

What a Wonderful Christmas

We had a great day yesterday. The boys loved their gifts. Michael got a Camera, Casey got a leapster and Peyton got a little people's Noahs Ark (from us). Auntie and Uncle Mark Isa and Kai got Michael and Casey a cup filled with $10 (for their vacations) and Peyton got a pretty cool book. Ben and Betsy got the boys a book to share. Grandma Cindy gave Peyton a pull toy and the big boys a racing track. Mom and Dad did pretty good too. I got 2 cartridges for my Cricket machine and Brian got me a Kitchenaid Proffesional 600. I love it. Daddy got lots of stuff for hunting and training his new duck dog. He should be all set.

Photos!! Done by Uncle Ben

It's nice having someone in the family that has all the fun equipment to take some really cool pics of the kids. Uncole Ben was able to get us into the Lynden Fire Department. Then we went across the street from his house and got the rest of the awesome pictures.
This one of Peyton is one of my favorites.

My three sweet boys

This is a great one of Michael and Casey

Peyton loved driving the fire truck

Classic Casey

They are just so darn cute

Auntie, Uncle Brian???

I hear this multiple times throughout the day. I find it kind of funny actually. When Isa first came home, she wanted nothing to do with Uncle Brian. I think she gave him his first hug at about 10months of age (she came home at 6or 7months). He didn't get anymore after that. Now, she runs happily into his arms. She loves hugs from her Uncle Brian and always wants to know where he is. Sadly, he doesn't get home until after she leaves for the day.

Casey with Grandpa Cal
Taken feb of 05.
I love this picture, it is a classic Casey. Hard to believe that even at such a young age he was a goofball. I love this little kid and can't believe that in 19 days he will be 4. Scratch that, in 19 days I will have 2 kids that are 4 and they aren't twins.

I had this picture in my last post and then decided that I should blur out the "pee thing"
So here is the big boy sitting on the potty. He walks around the living room and periodically goes
and sits on the potty. He kept saying "CHEESE" as I was taking this picture
Posted by Picasa

Look at these two

First thing is first. Peyton has been showing quite an interest in the potty. If I go into the bathroom he follows and sits on the little potty. He has even been holding his pee (I think) as he is soaking through his diaper a couple of times a day. So this afternoon he gets to run around naked.
Peyton is fascinated with his "pee thing" (that's what Casey calls them)

Kai fell asleep in the excersaucer. I couldn't believe and took a picture before moving him to the swing. He is still sleeping peacefully.

Peyton's Picture Post

Peyton with his new best friend.
"You don't get to leave till I'm done with you"
Peyton with Ladybird
Daddy's duck hunting dog.

I still cannot believe that Kai is a whole year younger than Peyton.

Peyton loves his Kai Kai

Peyt's Update

Peyton had a Dr. appt this morning and he did great. As I figured he is growing just fine. Weighed in at 26lbs 13oz and is 33in. He is just under 75% for both. He also got 4 shots today and we go back to the Dr. in a month for his second dose of the flue vaccine. I'll try to post pics later.

Isn't she cute...

We had a slight accident today and the little dear was in need of a change. Nicole does a great job of keeping me stocked with clothes for the little Ms. but I have clothes stock piled in my closet (you know, in case I ever have a girl or for my nieces for gifts). Every once in awhile I will pull them out and use them on the little ms. I got this outfit at Carters for 6 bucks (minus the babylegs, those are Peyt's). Nicole, I need this outfit back, especially the babylegs, they are my favorite.
