Happy Birthday Ty! He turned five this past week. He made sure that on his birthday we remembered that since it was his special day he could do what ever he wanted. We took in cookies to his pre school class and went to Burger King for lunch. He got to ride bikes and play with his friends in the afternoon and then had his favorite dinner, chicken tacos. On Saturday we had some of his friends over, they all were dressed up as Super Hero's. It was fun seeing all these five year olds running around chasing each other with thier super powers.

Ty is such a fun a little boy, he keeps us laughing with his little one liners at the end of his stories. He loves being a big brother and a little brother, and loves to give me hugs and kisses. He definitely keeps us on our toes, you never know what he is going to say or do. I can't believe how big he is now, I wish my kids would stop growing up so fast. We love you TY!

One month old!

I can't believe Cole is already one month old, time seems to go way to fast. He now weighs 10 lbs 7 oz and is 22 1/4 in. long. He is staying awake more through out the day and most nights he sleeps really well. It's hard to remember our lives without him being a part of our family. He is now smiling and is such a sweet little boy, it's hard for me to put him down. I just love to cuddle with him, I love watching him grow and I can't wait to see who he'll become.

Halloween Baby!

Okay so as much as I didn't want a Halloween baby, that is when Cole decided he'd make his appearance. Cole B. Knudsen was born at 7:50 on Halloween morning weighing 7lbs 12oz and 20 1/2 inches long. Labor and delivery were quick and for the most part pain free. So far he is the best baby very calm, and mellow, and has been sleeping through all the noise that his brothers make.

Jaden and Ty still got their Halloween, Dave, took them trick or treating. Then brought them to the hospital so I could see how cool they looked.

In case you were wondering they are a good Vampire and Grim Reaper.

So I thought I'd play a little catch up while I wait for this baby to get here.

Below you see two pics that are of what you ask? It is what is known as a Gourd car, yes you are reading that right a Gourd car. At Jadens school all the 3rd graders make what is called a Gourd car for the Fall Festival, we don't know why but they do. So below is Jadens car, he decided that he wanted it to resemble a space ship. So this was our attemp at making a gourd space ship car.

They had All Sports Day at his school today so Ty tagged along with Dave and got to participate in some of the events. Jaden was very excited to have Dave there helping out. While I stayed at home and cleaned my house from top to bottom, with the help of my Mom and my sister in law Andie. Thank you guys so much for all your help.

Jaden, Ty and some friends at all sports day!

A couple of weeks ago the boys got go to a Birthday party at the zoo. They had such a good time, they had never been to the Phoenix Zoo. Here are a few pics that Dave got of them having a fun time.

And last but not least here are a few pictures of Cole's room. I love the way it turned out!

Almost done.....

I can't believe that in a couple of weeks Cole, will be here. I think that his room is basically ready, I just need to hang up some pictures and it will be all done. Now I'm just wondering if I'm really ready, I think I have everything I'll need as far as diapers, wipes, baby wash and clothes. Thanks to some wonderful friends who have gotten me so many things I was in need of, I now feel much more prepared. It's just the thought of going through labor and delivery is not appealing to me. I guess no one really looks forward to that part. I'm just praying that I make it to the hospital in time to get my epidural. I know that I can do do it with out the drugs, but why should I if I don't have to. We're all looking forward to meeting this little guy and can't wait to see what he looks like. I'll post a few pics of his room as soon as I get around to taking some.

My brother in law was able to get my prego pics done for me, I love them! The boys had a great time and they all turned out so good. Below are just a few of my favorites i'm 30 weeks prego in these pics. I can't belive how fast this pregnancy is going by.
Nate thanks again for taking these for me, it's going to be hard to decide which ones I want to get printed up.

My brother in law Nathan is starting up a photography business, and I volunteered us to be some of his guinea pigs. I was so excited to get some new family pics and I wanted to try doing some maternity shots also. But for those of you who don't know Ty very well don't know that if he doesn't want to do something he will make your life miserable. So my brother in law is trying to take photos and Ty is doing everything he can to not be in any of the photos. By the end I was so frustrated, if you notice in the picture below you can't see TY. Well that is because he was throwing a fit, he is actually laying down in between Dave and I. Needless to say we didn't even try to get any maternity pictures. There were a handful of pictures that turned out well and they are below. My brother in law really does do a great job, I love how he captures candid shots rather than have every thing really posed. You can check out his web page through the NL Photography link on my blog. Thanks Nate I Love the pictures that did turn out.

1st Day of School!

Today was the first day of school for the boys, Jaden is now in 2ND grade and Ty is in Pre-School. I can't believe that school is already starting, the summer just flew by I don't know if I'm ready to be back on a schedule again.

Jaden woke up before I did, excited to start his first day of school. We had to find ways to waste time till it was time to head out the door. This year his Teacher is Mrs. Scheek she seems really nice and Jaden is excited to have her as a teacher. She actually teaches a class that is half 2nd grade and half 3rd grade. They have taken some the higher performing 2nd graders and put them in this class and they will be learning some the 3rd grade curriculum. Jaden is excited because that means he'll get to dissect animals for Science.

Ty on the other hand was didn't want to get out of bed so early in the morning, but once he remembered that school was starting he hopped right up. Once we got Jaden settled in at school it was time to get Ty to school, we had decided to eat breakfast at his new school so he was very excited. Once done eating we were off to class, his Teachers name is Ms. Shannon and she is very nice. Ty proudly hung up his back pack then gave me a hug good bye and was done with me. It was kinda sad to see him not need me to stick around.

Ty said he couldn't open his eyes because it was to bright out.

I will admit that I shed a few tears that day, I can't believe that both my boys are so big. I don't like how fast they are growing up, but I guess it has to happen. They both ended up having a wonderful 1st day of school.

Happy Birthday Jaden!

I can't believe that Jaden is Seven years old now. It seem like just yesturday that he was a little baby. And now he's almost as tall as me and going into the second grade. I am so grateful though that he is still my sweet little boy who is always telling me how much he loves me and that i'm his best friend. He brings such a sweet spirit to our home and is always trying to help others. Below our are few pictures of him looking back over the years, I can't believe how fast time goes by.

Jaden I just want to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm so grateful to have you for a son.
