Cartoons and Cowboys!

My two little cowboys sitting on their horses watching some monday morning cartoons! They are just too cute!

Here is Justin's new smile. Don't you just love it! This is what I get now when I take pictures or when he thinks he is being cute he will give me this look. He is a HAM. Justin is now in nursery and he absolutely loves it! He went in for the 1st time last Sunday and he ran in and didn't even look back. I thought that he would be happy to see me when I picked him up but he ran in the opposite direction. Another independent one like his older brother Seth!

Trick or Treat Smell my ..........

Halloween was a lot of fun this year. We of course went to Almo to trick-or-treat and we met up with all of the cousins. Justin made it to about 6 or 7 houses which was a miracle in itself. He hated his costume when we tried it on and he tore it off right away. I thought that he wouldn't even get out of the driveway but he did! The older boys were lucky enough to have Grandpa take them to every house in Almo! We didn't even get home until 10:30 pm. Talk about tired kids!
Tanner is showing off his awesome spiderman muscles, Seth is our amazing Buzz Light Year, and then Justin is our very "scary" tiger!

I couldn't resist putting this cute picture on here. He is just too cute!

The Simon's
Oh how we love the Simon family! Jason and I were able to take a fun five day trip to Seattle to see our good friends and see the Seattle area. We loved it! It was just what we needed, a fun get away for the two of us. We were so glad that our friends Nick and Jen were able to go and have fun with us. Thanks again for letting us stay with you guys, you two are the best!

If any of you know Jason you know that he absolutely LOVES crab legs. We went to a resturant down on the pier and had crab. We loved it. They brought you a pot of crab legs and dumped it on your table and you go to town. YUMMY!

Jason and I toured the old square in downtown. We also were able to go on an underground tour of "old" Seattle. They had 14 blocks of the basements and 1st floors covered with dirt. In one of the pictures you can see where one of the windows use to be looking at street level, now all you see is dirt. The pic with the counter is that of an old bank. Really interesting history in Seattle!

Leavenworth Washington was definitely worth the two hour drive East. It is a fun little Bulgarian Village in a little ski town. They had a ton of different little shops that were fun to go in. They had a had store there with every single hat you could think of. Jason and I had a fun time in that store!

While in Seattle we were able to go to a Mariners baseball game. Nick got the tickets and he did a great job, we had great seats. The Mariners played the Yankee's (boo) and Ichiro hit a homer in the last inning to win the game. It was so much fun, we had a blast!

We took a ferry to an island off of the Seattle shoreline. It was a beautiful ride and an awesome view of Seattle. THe little town was cute and had a fun little game store.

We had a ton of fun here. Nick and Jason found a little stand where a Filipino lady was cooking and they were able to eat all of the different foods that they ate while serving their missions in the Phillipines. Jen and I tasted the food which was good! Jason is hanging out with a group of "pink ladies". I think secretly he loved it!

So Jason and I took our first trip every without kids(minus the 1 night get aways). We went to Seattle to see our awesome friends from college and had a blast (more pics to come). We were gone five days and when we got home the kids were all fine. The next day they all seemed to have little colds. Well, the two older boys seemed to get over their colds quickly but Justin got worse. I took him to his Dr. and he ended having Pneumonia & RSV. The poor kid! They wanted to admit him into the hospital but I asked if I could try something at home before we had to result to that. I have been giving him breathing treatments 3 times a day and he's on 2 antibiotics. HE had a check-up today and the Dr. said he isn't any worse but not completely better. We have to keep up what we are doing and go in again next week. He's doing really good and doesn't even act like he's sick. Check out the pics, he looks fine to me!

Our Little Angel


We love him so much but he is such a BUSY BOY! I can't keep him out of trouble! I was cooking dinner and on the phone when I looked outside and saw this little guys on his belly in a mud puddle. He was rolling around like a little pig!

So, we sent Seth off to school last week and he absolutely LOVES it! We told Tanner now that Seth is gone he is our #1 worker. He has loved working with his dad and has been soaking in every minute. This is them working last week on building a road with the dump truck. They are having a great time together!

1st Day of School!

Can you believe that I have a kid old enough to go to kindergarten? Whoa does time fly! Seth was so excited for his 1st day of school. He picked out his own clothes while school shopping and wouldn’t you know it, everything had to have skulls on it. Isn’t that odd for a 5 year old? I wasn’t ready to let him go but I knew that it was time. I had a good little cry last night and then a few tears on the way home. His aunt is going to pick him up from school today so I’ll have to wait until later to know how it went. Here are some pics of Tanner and Justin too from this morning. Poor Tanner got all dressed up for school to be told that he wasn’t going!  While changing the laundry before school, I came back to this! STINKER
