Growing Big

The boys are getting so big now, it's hard to believe they are almost six months. I have to admit it's a lot of work but they are so worth it and so much fun to have around, except at 2 and 5 in the morning. The girls have a blast with them and can really make them laugh and giggle. It's fun to watch because they get so excited, for the most part, when ever they see them. Here is Hayden sitting so big on the counter helping mom make dinner.

Poor Hayden and what his sisters won't do to him. I'm afraid he has many more years and worse possibilites still to come.

Hayden getting loves from mom

Canyon has been very into food and watches us intently when we're eating so we decided to try him on his first cereal. He took it ok but wasn't a big fan of it. He enjoyed the ice cream dad gave him much better. No more eating with dad!

A Cabin for Birthday

This year for Ali's 7th birthday instead of a party, yeah, we rented a state parks cabin out Chena Hot Springs and spent the night and had Ali's birthday there. We got there that evening and made dinner and then had a little party where she opened her presents and had cake and ice cream. This year she wanted a dog cake with pink spots, this was the best I could do. We all had so much fun and it was great because my brother Jeremy and his wife Brooke flew up from Idaho to be with us and it was wonderful to have them. The cabin was a blast and after presents we went swimming at Chena Hot Springs and then came back and slept for the night. The next morning we had a lazy morning of sleeping in and Jeremy made us breakfast. It was a great way to spend a birthday and the girls had a blast. Maybe we'll make it a tradition!

A Cabin for Birthday Continued

Swimming at Chena Hot Springs with Uncle Jeremy. Ali said she wouldn't have a birthday party this year if we go to Chena Hot Springs and she can stay in the pool as long as she wants. Sounds good to me!

A Big Big Weekend

The boys sporting their fall hats!
Also the weekend of Halloween my brother Jeremy and his wife Brooke came and visited for a few days to celebrate Ali's birthday and spend Halloween with us. We had a great time with them and wished they could have stayed for a month. The first day they were here they came with Saiger to her school to help out with their Halloween party.

Halloween Fun

So here is the start of our Halloween this year, off to the Halloween carnival at Ali's school. Saiger was still sick but insisted on going. She made it about an hour which was about all we could take too.
The cutest pumpkins around. Canyon on left, Hayden on right.

Saiger as snow white and Ali as sleeping beauty. They get to be princesses when we are inside but have to wear their warm costumes for trick or treating outside, those pics to come.

Canyon excited to be a pumpkin!

Hayden not so excited about it!

Kids and more Kids

Saiger wanted me to do a bunch of braids in her hair one day for school. This is what came of it!

The boys working on tummy time. They are happy for about the first five seconds so I have to be quick with the camera. They are getting so cute and so much fun. It's fun to watch their little personalities develop. Canyon is on the left and Hayden the right.

Hayden on left Canyon on right. We're still having to do physical therapy for Canyon's neck and it is improving slowly but it still has the definate bend. Jeff says he'll just probably walk in circles the rest of his life, that's all!

Cute pics of our Canyon, both top and bottom. Finally capturing some of his cute, funny smile. When he smiles he opens his mouth as wide as it will go. Still no hair!

Cute pics

Just some cute pics of our boys that we love so much. They are so much fun right now laughing, smiling, and watching them get excited when they see each other. Hayden is on the right and Canyon is on the left in all the pics. Hayden will smile at anyone and Canyon you have to work at him a little but when he does he has the cutest little crooked smile. One of these times I'm going to get it!

A Bunch of Crying

So here are some pictures that are worth crying about. First, Hayden wasn't too excited to get dressed up by his sisters. That a boy, I'm sick of the princess thing too! Secondly, this is what we woke up to the morning of Sept. 21, yep the 21st! We blinked and now fall is gone. I am still in denial thinking it's just a fluke and we still have a couple of weeks of beautiful fall but Jeff says wishful thinking. It doesn't help much that it's snowing again today, aagghh!!!

Love the Fall

Girls raking leaves in prep to throw them all over the yard again!

Our Canyon at 3 and a half months, no hair!

First Day of School

Here is Saige on her first day of school. She was so excited to go. I told her we would leave after lunch so starting at 10 am that day she was so hungry and ready for lunch. I can't believe my little girl is off to school!

Ali loving her brother, Canyon.
