First time we got to see Papa Steve since he moved to Texas. 11 months was way too long!
As you all know... there are only so many things that can be done when there is such a large spectrum of ages...BOWLING! Grandma Shell and Jax just chillin'
The kids only lasted about hmmmmmm... two or three throws before they were STARVING! Imagine that.
Super cute pic of Jax and Aunt Tara. Best part for me going to St George is that I obviously don't go enough because Aunt Tara, Aunt Angie and Grandma actually miss my kids enough to take them off my hands the whole time. It's fabulous!
And of course where else would Chris be but at the computer giving everybody such lovely and appropriate bowling names. LOL!

Thanksgiving with the Matthews!

So before we came home, the Krebs invited us to with their family and cut down christmas trees. It was quite the adventure. Right off the bat, a couple of people...including Tara pictured above...wiped out before we even go to the mountain. Very slippery under that snow!
Me and the kiddoes headin' up to find us a tree. That's Madi lost under her own hat ; )
And here is the man of the hour! Our tree was gorgeous. I won't even go into detail what it took to get 5 trees off that mountain, but it was worth it and super fun! The kids had the most fun of course.

Best big sisters ever!

Madi got Jax to try and give her kisses through the glass on the door. As you can see, he thought that was SO fun! Kenna couldn't resist the fun either. I never have to worry about Jax with the girls around. They are AMAZING big sisters!

Cute pics of "rugga boos"

Cutest smile ever. And of course Granpa is the one getting it out of him. I don't know what we'd do without all of our family, but especially those who assist us daily. Not to mention that at this time Jax was a big grumpy pants because finally, at 11 months, he got his first two teeth in!
Watch out ladies, Jax is all ready getting his kisser goin! Poor Aiden, Jax has to kiss him like five times every time he comes over. Jax is dying for Aiden to get big so they can play.
And of course he is trying to grab the camera from me. Little stinker : )
And here is Mr. Sensitive skin. This is what warm water does... now just imagine the color of his face when I make him mad. Hello Ryan Jr!
I love that it looks like he is wearing red pants! He likes to wear them low : ) No matter where he puts them he's showin' crack!

Halloween 2009

Here is the gang for Halloween. The kids scored big time, which is good seeing as how they have to split their profits with their parents!
Here come the girls. Madi was a snow princess, and believe you me, she took that roll very seriously. If only you could see the way she was walking and the expression on her face. ROFL!
Kenna was a candy corn witch. Her only fear was that Grandpa Greg might try and eat her : )
Here is Jax just waiting for his sisters to come through in the parade. What a cute little monkey!

Madi and Kenna's 7th Birthday party!

So obviously the girls chose to have a halloween theme for the birthday. Thank goodness for all those creative women who love to brag about their amazing ideas cause if it weren't for them I don't know who I'd copy for cute cupcakes!
As always, dry ice is a huge hit for potion making at the party. And we all enjoy the homemade root beer too!
They are all really excited to start the first game... eat the donut off the string without using their hands.
SO DANG FUNNY! I highly recommend this game. The kids are beyond entertaining!
This is our friend London... she got a little upset when I told her that the winner was the first person to finish their donut, not just have it all in their mouth. HE HE HE
This is the side that Mandy did the "iron ons" and then the kids got to decorate the other side with puff paints. They all had cute and different designs. THANK YOU Mandy for ironing for a straight hour to get them done for me!
Here is Jaxon having his own party underneath the tables.
The kids all doing their puff paint side of the trick or treat bags.
Madi and Kenna opening up the birthday presents.

And of course finishing the party with musical chairs. My favorite birthday game ever!

Madi and Kenna's first birthday with family

They wanted pumpkin cakes for their birthday cakes so with ideas from friends I was able to come up with this. Move over Betty Crocker, you ain't seen nothin' yet!
Just another cute "mini me" pic of Ryan and Jax.
No need to rearrange your screen or put on glasses... this is really Ryan working in the kitchen. We had spider web cupcakes to go with our pumpkin cakes. It was a last minute idea so I didn't have any spiders to put on top.

Jaxon outside

Jaxon and I were just out enjoying the beautiful fall weather that we get up here. He had a blast investigating the flower beds. And for whatever reason, playing on the railing is like the funnest thing in the world. Go figure. Of course anytime he is outside he is happy.

Hood 2 Coast!

This is van #2. There's me, Brianna, Ryan, Andrin, Jake and Megan. I got to meet these guys for the first time that morning and they will be forever friends. Such amazing people. Thanks for the good times!
Bri and I on the beach after the race. Boy did it feel good to be done. We had way too much fun. The running training is worth it just to come up here with Brianna. I LOVE YOU GIRL!
We have actually strapped his eating chair to the piano bench. Jax thinks he is going to be the next Beethoven. He LOVES to play on the piano, especially with Uncle Jeremy!
Mandy and I playing at Lyndee's house. She is my earth angel. I don't know what I would do without her.

Madi and Kenna on first day of school

I wanted to sneak in the class and get more pics, but I was embarrassing the girls. OOPS! I have a feeling that is just one of many mommy embarrassing moments on the way! : )
